Anonymous asked: The last post, about praying for my enemies... I had totally lost sight of that. I sometimes stop and think about people who declare publicly things that are so not true about me or other things-- one in particular has had me seething. Your post reminded me of a song by Bruce Carroll, the words that speak loudest are: "I pray for my enemies 'cause in the eyes of God I know that when it...
It seems to me that the hope when you “pray for your enemy” is that you no...
I’ve talked about this some before. Right now, I’m a little over 7 months into my one year of purposeful not-dating (even though I’ve been single for longer than that..), and for at least a few months, my desire for romantic relationship is completely nonexistent. What started as a joke turned into what I figured my life would be…. single forever, or as it is more commonly...
This is MY BLOG.
Sometimes, I feel guilty for actually posting things that are personal and matter to me on my blog… as if, I’m just cluttering up someone else’s newsfeed. WELL, WHATEVER. This is my blog, made initially for me to vent, and feel, and expand on my thoughts, and trace my life and the way God is moving in it. So, I’m going to do that more. Starting now. And if you don’t...
ENFP - The Champion
I took the Keirsey Character Test tonight, and OH MY GOSH. My type ended up fitting me perfectly. The Champion As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system. ENFPs are warm,...

Dear Immature Ex-boyfriend,
Untagging all of our old pictures and never talking to me doesn’t mean we never happened or that I don’t exist. It just makes you a tool. - The girl you used to love.

In case I ever forget again....
…praying makes all the difference. I got so frustrated lately with job searching and then the job I got giving me sucky hours, I just sort of stopped praying about it. After a nice like callout from one of my best ladies yesterday, I prayed about it again. Nothing spectacular, just a simple…. “Hey God, so um, remember this thing going on that I stopped talking to you about....
A Wedding :: February 12, 2011 →
These are all the shots from the wedding I shot a little over a week ago. Congrats to the happy couple, and thanks for letting me share in your day!
"Truth be told, I miss you. Truth be told, I'm...
I never really understood what this meant. But today, I was thinking about the people who aren’t around anymore. And now, it makes sense. I miss all the laughs and the memories and the sharing of lives. I miss the intimacy and vulnerability of those friendships. But, I don’t really miss them. How sucky of a realization is that?

So, tonight I was on my way to Fuse when my stepsister’s car broke down about 30 minutes from the house. It was so random, but it still ended up being a great night. We laughed and played cards. Then we read some Bible… So wonderful. I really am lucky to have my stepsister be one of my best friends :)

Sorry, in advance, for blowing up your dashboards with all the shots I’m proud of.
I really want to go back to the OBX this summer.
That gives me a little over 3 months to find a car and a place to live down there. Time to pray big!!!
