Sunlight

the sunlight capturing the dark night in the photo on my wall
it hangs there waiting to be noticed
the shades perfect in every line
each stroke you can tell took much time

the next piece that follows after
is a picture that reminds me of love
it was taken 3 months before he was born
no imperfection upon this great creation
I am torn from believing it is possible that love
could exist like this

and under each painting has the artist name proudly displayed
one simple word that caught my eye
the reason why i bought it
never knowing the cost that it took

that one name is " I am"

no man can ever take the place of
someone who could save the world from all its pain
no artist could imagine the creation
of the creator or His fame

He is I am the only one
created to be the son
that captures the dark night
making all the shades bright
finding every crack and crease
making it perfect, making it complete.



the sunlight capturing the dark night in the photo on my wall
in the middle of it all is the person I call " I am"

Blessings upon blessings

Today my car came alive. It has been brought back from the dead. For almost a month I have been out of a car, now good thing that my life is just across the street but it helps to get away.

Well. God is so good. I am reminded when by the Lord of how much He cares, just through my car starting again. My God is a big and good God.

After working for 8 1/2 hours today ...
The first outing..... off to Target...nothing. sorta disappointed with the $5 movie selection. So I ventured to good o' Blockbuster to grab a girl movie. Than I traveled to Rubio's a forgotten expensive love of mine. With dinner and a movie I headed home to have a date with myself. It was pleasant and I was cozy.

Then spent some time with the Lord. My parents were out for the night and it was nice to have the place to myself. I miss just relaxing.

I love Jesus !!!

Heart



I hear it beat
I hear it pound
whenever You are around

I feel it thump
In my chest
Knowing You are the best

You amaze me, you make this heart beat
You clean it out, make it new
Lord, You fill it with Your unfailing love
As You hold it in Your palms

How grateful I am for this heart of mine
that belongs to You.


I don't know my heart. I don't know how filthy it is or how much cleaning it needs to have done to it. Yet, I do know that God holds it in the palm of His hand. I am so comforted by it.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Thank you Lord for holding me in your hands, thank you for loving me.

Leaves turning colors

I love fall.

I love how in Spring the colors start to get bright again, the air gets a bit warmer and everything around looks fresh.

Summer time for sun and sun. All is well.

Fall those vibrant and bright colors start to fade and things start to die. But their is still beauty even in that.

I have heard this saying a many times " there are seasons and chapters of our Christian walk". I feel like this semester has definitely been a season of growth and renewal of my relationship with Christ.

Everyday I am challenged to grow deeper, to live a life thriving after His word, and to let go of the things that I don't understand. I have come to realize that the seasons of my Christian life are beneficial even when I don't always want to admit it. I am so blessed to see the Lord do amazing things in my friends. I am so blessed to be in this season, because no matter how hard the process of growing,I am assured that He is there. This growth is to make me more like my Jesus.

"For I know the plans I have for you" i love this section of the verse. God knows the plans that He has for us. When I doubt and wonder what in the world is going on, I can be comforted by the simple truth that He knows all.

This verse keeps on popping up. Not sure why,maybe for a reason but hmm....

" He will feed His flock like a Shepherd;He will gather the lambs with His arms, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young" Isaiah 40:11

Enjoy the season that God has for you, desire His perfect love to pour through you and don't forget that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.

God bless!!!

why not some emo ?

you've got me here waiting in the middle of this storm
and although there are none around, i know i am not alone
I've watched for hours the road i stand on
just another touch of the wind

here i am on my knees
dying inside
not feeling the breeze

You've got me in this place
I don't know the reason why
But i am here
and you are here
with me

i am here
you are here
with me

i am not alone
no i am not alone
you gave me all
that i may see
your love
the love you have for me

i am here
you are here
with me.
