cause you're the only ten i see

i'm shipping out to tennessee for the summer for discipleship focus. holla! i'm so excited to see what does God shows me through the people and experiences i am going to gain. i am also slightly nervous about living in tennessee - pigeon forge to be exact! - for the next 10 weeks. but every time i start to get nervous i feel like God is just whispering in my ear "my thoughts are not your thoughts" and i know he is about to deliver one of the most amazing learning experiences ever. ah! and the best part is three of my closest friends are going on this little adventure with me too! i mean, God is good. all the time.

next i would like to take a little break about my summer adventure and vent about facebook for a hot second. i hate that it sucks the time right out of the spare moments i choose to embark of that little harmless website. it's like i want to get on for .5 seconds and then BAM! and hour later i am logging off. ugh. i need to use self control a little more perhaps but i'm just baffled that it's like a black hole where time doesn't exist. ok that's all for me. until we meet again....

summer rain

there is just something about a rainy day that makes you lazy... please tell me you can relate?? it's as if i want to run, really i do, but then i look outside and it's wet, cloudy, blah. who wants to run in that mess? no one. but then again do i ever really want to run? or do i just say that i do in hopes that one day reverse psychology will actually work on myself? hm... probably the latter of the two.

i am also blaming the rain for my lack of productivity today. (besides catching up on lost - which is kind of a big deal). however i think i will continue to do nothing because sometimes that's what you just need to do!

the mundane life of a crazy girl...

i've been spending some time in south carolina recently, more specifically in greenville. i love this little place not just because of my dear friend who is currently occupying the town but also because of the ease and comfort that i have begun to associate with this place. it's like my second home, even if liz NEVER has food in her cabinets! but also because something interesting always happens while i'm here. for instance. liz's dog mack was not feeling up to par when i arrived. by the end of the night he wasn't using either of his back legs AND he had diarrhea. so in the morning he went to the vet. well what did the vet say.... before i tell you, you have to understand that we were really scared for mack. he was acting so strange, only walking on two legs! ignoring everyone, just lying there.... ok so the vet. what did the vet say?? an extreme case of. . . . just diarrhea!? mack just had diarrhea. and apparently mack can't use his back legs while this happens... what?? really. but. that's just weird. but honestly that is what the vet said. now you may not think it's weird but come on. really. it's strange.

we have also ventured into the world of laziness while in greenville. laying around, eating the food liz doesn't have, and watching movies. more specifically we watched "it's complicated". what a perfect title for that movie. and what a perfect phrase. it's complicated. so many things are complicated in this life. i'm not going to even dive into that mess because it could last forever. however because of that fact, "life is the messy bits", i know this: life will always be a little crazy, a little mundane at times, even a little complicated when it should be simple. but it will always be nice to take a little break, visit an old friend, enjoy a glass of wine, and get "messy" with my best of friends. and live a life that is full of JOY because of a sovereign God.

Psalm 4:7-8
"You have put more joy in my heart than they have have when their grain and wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."

it has begun

i have recently decided, with a little push from liz neels - my best friend and wonderful sidekick, to dive into the world of blogging. i don't really know what it will look like or who will listen to the nonsense that fills my mind but i like the idea of it. whenever i stumble upon a good blog, i can't help but appreciate the witty, clever writting. so my hopes are that my posts find you at a witty, content place. or maybe just make you laugh at my ridiculous yet sassy take on life. and if not... welp. there's not much i can do for you.
