Quote of the Week.

I love things Brian says to me, and I want to start documenting them. This last week he sent me a 'good night' text that encouraged me so much. It said "I like US so much. I love the idea and practice of bringing glory to our loving Savior!!!"

My heart is melting...

My name is graven on His hands

As I mentioned in past posts, I am a sucker for hymns. Old fashioned, yes. But there is something so strong, powerful, tear-jerking, eloquent, and beautiful that comes from most hymns. I also love that behind them there is an incredible story.

On December 29-January 2 my best friend Amy, and I, went up to Tacoma, WA for a very good YWAM friend's wedding. It was an incredible trip! Amy did the professional (airbrush) makeup for all the girls in the wedding, and we did a lot of the background stuff that goes into a wedding. I absolutely love sharing in this special time with special friends. It's a once in a life time occasion! At the wedding, my friend Levi and the groom's sister sang the hymn "before the throne of God above," accompanied by the piano. It was breathtaking! I cannot get this song out of my head now, and I keep listening to it repetitively on Youtube. I will attach the link in case anyone is interested in a quick soaking session. :)

More than just being a beautiful song, the lyrics ring absolute truth. We have a Great High Priest whose name is LOVE! My name is graven on His hands, it is written on His heart! "When Satan tempts me to despair, and tells me of guilt within, upward I look and see Him there, who made an end of all my sin. Because a sinless Savior died, my sinful soul is counted free!" I can't even seem to properly form any thoughts to these lyrics. The reality of these lyrics is absolutely overwhelming. I am so grateful for my Great High Priest whose name is Love. He breaks my heart...

More posts to come {hopefully} in the near future!

Experiencing a lull.

It's been forever since I've blogged. I feel like nothing too, too special has happened - at least nothing really worth blogging about. I know I will look back to this one day, remembering this phase of life.

Brian, my incredible boyfriend and I are doing better than ever. Life is so good-I am so blessed to have him in my life! He is such a godly and hardworking man, whom I admire very very much. He inspires me in every area of my life. He has started preaching occasionally at our church, ( and has made me so proud. Somehow with how respected this man is, with how hardworking and smart this man is, and how on top of things in life he is, he still adores me. I don't totally understand it, but he adores my passions, gifts and talents however few they are. It's quite overwhelming. I struggle sometimes to feel worthy of him, and I know that isn't true...because I have him! Just a learning process...

I am now in a transition period... I had my plans set to move out the beginning of February, have a great nannying job and be on top of it. But, things fall through. I no longer have a job and am searching pretty hard. I desperately want something that will allow me to support myself to move out of the parent's home. IT'S TIME! Praying for wisdom has become my big thing lately. I need to grow up, therefore I NEED to find a job.
