Waiting for something exciting to happen

Something out of the ordinary

Something to make my day pop out

Could it be the blue sky today?


It's not exactly what I had in mind.

Actually I really didn't have anything in mind.

Just a wish.

For something exciting to happen.

Time. Time goes past so quickly. It amazes me that I'm 16. That this summer I'll be going to Europe for the first time. That next year I'll be a junior, that soon I'll be getting my lisence. It seems like yesterday when I was watching the fireworks on New Years Eve in Florida with my family. We were was amazed back then that it was 2007, and now it's practically the fifth month of this year. Time. It goes past so quickly.

I guess I've learned that I need to live in the now. That I can't regret when something good ends, or I can't waste my days waiting for something else to come along. But, instead I have to live today. Thanking Jesus that he's given it to me.

But being 16 makes me excited for my future. I have an understanding of what I might become, of where I might go to University, of the promises that God has made in my life. Because even as I write, I know that he is slowly fufulling those promises.

And although I look forward to things that I want to accomplish and do later in my life, I know that I need to live now and do what I can now in order to get to that place later. There's always something to look forward to, but the thing is, if you get too excited looking forward to something you miss out on the little blessings God gives you every day.

I've had several amazing things this April that I had looked forward to all year long: Freshwind, Battlecry, Celebrating my birthday etc. But now April is practically finished and all of those things are over and done with. But you know what? I'm still content. I had an amazing month, but I'm ready to face May. To live in the moment. Bring it on :)

I like this picture. If a picture really is worth a thousand words then this is one of those. Words that come to mind: Happy. Content. Childish. Party. Friends. Park. Well that's only 6 words, but you get the picture.. (haha picture)
Yes, well that's my thought for the day
Night :)

The Sun is Shining

It's warm outside.

I'm going to spend the day outside basking in its glory.

Letting my mind wander...

So, I'm hoping that my fingers will be able to keep up.

Music has this way of explaining exactly how you're feeling at a specific moment in time.

Feeling on Top of the World.

World:big, Big:room, Room:ballroom, Ballroom:dance

I need to dance more often. I've figured that dancing is even better when you don't know how to dance,

Dance:exercise, Exercise:warm, Warm:hot, Hot:summer, Summer:love

I love summer dresses that blow in the wind.

Wind:holy spirit, Holy spirit:God, God:Communication

Prayer is just communication with God, and it works, did you know that?

ow:knowledge, knowledge:vocabulary, Vocabulary:words

Words can be reshersed in your head a million times over, but when you actually say them out loud it comes out completely different.

Different, I wonder if people see me as different...

2nd Thought for the Day

There was this cool person I met yesterday that told me not to live my life with "could have's, and would if's". He said to spend each moment enjoying what you have, making the best of each opportunity. Live life.

I guess It just really made sense. What good is looking forward to something if you don't enjoy every minute when it finally does come? Often I find that by the time we get to the thing that we were looking forward to, we've already moved on to the next "looking forward to" if you know what I mean.

So enjoy each moment. Don't say, "Aww man, I wish it was longer" Instead take that moment and say, "Wow, what a privilege it is to be here, or do this right now, today." And when It's over, God'll bring something else into your life.

Life is full of up's and down's. Enjoy the moment, enjoy the memory, but don't dwell on the negatives when it really is filled with positives... Take it, learn from it.


I'm so tired of being a wuss.
It's like "Hey, I've got the best news on the planet. It's changed my life forever. It's the only thing that completely satisfies me, and guess what, You can have it too! "
But then I don't tell people about it.
I so want to be done with that.
What's my Jerusalem?

Oh my, life changes so quickly...

I'm not sure how I feel about it,
But are we ever sure?
I don't even know why it's making me unsettled,
Because it's not my problem...
Probably because it's about somebody I know very well.
It's like foreign territory,
A bridge that hasn't been crossed before
I think it's nice,
I just don't think it's needed
Hope nobody gets hurt,
And it's all just a great memory...
I guess I'll pray about it.
What else can I do??

Jars of Clay is Incredible in concert!

Yesterday I went to see Jars of Clay in concert with some of my friends from youth. I actually don't listen to Jars of Clay. But I did some catching up the week before the concert from their latest CD "Good Monsters", and yes, they are definately sweet.

Also, at the concert was NEEDTOBREATHE, and they were great. I got their CD and it's sweet too. Oh and Leigh Nash was there too. (The lead singer from Sixpence None the richer), only now she's a solo artist. Anyways... it was some good times.

Jars of Clay is incredible in concert!
