+ the charleston scottish highland games are this weekend! WHHHAAATTTT!! i’m hoping i’ll be able to go – but i’m not sure. $$ + time + a wedding that night + i am b.r.o.k.e bleh – probably next year.
+ truth y’all, truth.
+ the grass at my house is so high. i’ve had ZERO time to cut it. i was gone 90% of last weekend and when i got back i was sick. that sickness lasted through until tuesday which is when i got STUNG by a dang wasp, then wednesday night i went for a run downtown and got home and fell asleep, last night – lets not even discuss last night. SOOOOOOO maybe it will get cut soon – maybe not. maybe i will just become one of those neighbors who lets it see how high it can go. 🙂
+ this story warmed my heart. seriously – reading this made me smile from ear to ear at the thoughtfulness and strong backbone of joey. & that woman – I hope she feels some conviction and pays forward something kind to another human being.
+ i am SO OVER this wasp sting. seriously – it sucks. i got stung on tuesday night and it’s just been itchy & red & hot since then. cortisone cream has been my only relief.
+ this looks like a super easy fall diy art project. i could definitely see it over a couch, or fire place.
+ frankly…i’m not perfect y’all. *gasp* i know – you’re shocked just as much as i am ;). i make mistakes – lots of them, and i make selfish choices over Godly choices daily. i do things that make me look back, run my head through a wall thinking “why on earth would i do that?!” – i am human. i’m learning as i get older, the “mistakes” seem to carry bigger consequences or heart ache. i find myself thinking “have i really not learned this lesson yet – how will this affect me in the years to come”. am i alone in this? in choosing the flesh over the spirt? i don’t think i am, but sometimes it feels that way. the truth is, being 24, without a “home church”, not knowing where God is calling me to go/be/do/serve/etc, and desiring a relationship while lounging in the desert of singleness – has been hard. i wouldn’t say it’s hard every day, i’m not that dramatic – but it is a challenge. i’m also thankful for it, even for some of the mistakes. i’m learning more about myself, about life, about what is holy & good vs destructive & foolish. things i thought i had concrete answers for are being tested – and with testing…with refinement comes a stronger more resilient individual. i feel like i’m blabbering. all of this to say – thank you for your prayers, please continue to pray, and let me know how i can be praying for you. this journey of life is so much easier when we lean on Jesus as we should and have sisters & brothers in Christ to pair up with and share the burden. y’all…that is how it’s meant to be.
+ y’all….John Mayer + Phillip Phillip concert tickets go on sale at 10am here today…they suspect it to be sold out in minutes – i am going to TRY to buy tickets!!! i’m not the biggest fan of john mayer as a person, but musically – swoon.
+ my brother turned 21 this past week. 21!!!! WHEN DID HE GET SO BIG?! i still look at him and see my little brother. the one with the white-blonde curly hair and brilliant blue eyes, the one who i would say “how fast can you do this” to trick him into getting me a glass of sweet tea. the little boy who would come snuggle up next to me because he felt like it. when did he turn into a man? a man who is figuring out life and learning more about himself, who loves his family and friends fiercely, a man who still gives me hugs and says i love you. i can’t wait to see the kind of man he will become as the years continue to pass – but can the years slow down at least a little?
+ ummm hello BRILLIANT. i never would have thought of this. my little artistic heart is doing cartwheels and backflips!
+ i found one of my mothers necklaces last night – it makes me happy to find small things of hers, it brings back sweet memories. i miss my mom.
+ i hope y’all have a lovely weekend and get whatever accomplished that you’re hoping to – that’s my goal! 🙂
