don't ask how i found it,
but i found the most amazing website i've ever seen.
their products are awesome,
and to be totally honest,
don't need a website to sell.
these babies will sell themselves.
please, for the love of everything good and holy,
go to this website:

wings of praise.

a burden

something has been happening lately.
and my heart is being moved like never before.

i've started to read unChristian.
it's a book put out by The Barna Group
and written by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons.
basically, they are exposing how the world views Christians.
and it's sobering.
i knew it was bad, but i didn't realize the depth of that.

so i find that my heart is breaking and i'm burdened.
[this is most definitely a good thing]

i also came across this video today and it challenged me:

political girl?

last night i got to catch a few minutes of
the democratic national convention.
to be honest,
i am SO not into politics.
my reason: i'm too lazy to care.
[it's absolutely horrible, i know]

i'm doing my best to make an effort.
last week, i was excited to hear that donald miller,
one of my favorite authors,
would be giving the closing prayer at the dnc.
i was glad to hear this because,
as he puts it, "evangelical voices have been scarce
within this party..."
anyway, you can read his prayer here.

i was encouraged by it.
not because i'm for any particular side of anything.
rather, because he not only prayed for the democratic party,
but he prayed for the republicans too.
and he said what needed to be said.
"we need you God"

i was looking through some of my old blogs.
my simple revelations have become lost.
it was good to see them again.

i can't remember why i stopped writing about such things.
maybe i got distracted.
maybe i enjoyed being funny more.
either way,
it was refreshing to remember those things and those times.

revelation all over again.

le hair

good morning world.

i'm having a bad hair day today.
i think it's because i had a great hair day yesterday.
and i let it get to my head.

pun intended.

the thinker

i tend to be an over-thinker.
you know, i can always identify
that particular trait in others.
i never thought i would identify
that very trait in myself.

it's not necessarily a bad thing.
it just means
i love to think on ideas.
spend my time mulling over questions.
what's the real answer?
how can i solve this?

but it also comes with
what did that mean?
why did she do that?
and the ever-popular
why did i say that??

all i can say is,
it's the brain i was given.
[unfortunately or fortunately?]
i wouldn't have it any other way.

a moment

there are two types of people in this world
[yes, i'm totally using that]
1. people who live for the next moment
2. people who live off the moment they recently had

i seem to go in between the two people.
[as if i'm person 1.5 or something]
sometimes i live off of the moment i've recently had.
i think about it often.
it motivates me.
i tell everyone about it.

but sometimes i find myself desperate for another moment.
i don't like me when i'm person 1.
i can never be satisfied with my recent moment.
[moment can be replaced with experience, occurrence, etc.]
i find myself obsessing over what will happen next.
when will my next moment be?
when will i experience this again?

so my question is...
which is the right person?
do i live off of my moments... or do i live for the next one?
which is the better way to live?
which is the right way to live?
i don't know the answer.

just a thought i had this morning.

becoming me.

"i didn't know what i wanted to do,
but i knew the woman i wanted to become"
- diane von furstenberg

this is on an american express commercial.
and i'm totally obsessed with it.

no quote could describe me more.
i really don't know what i want to do.
or at least it changes regularly.
but i do know exactly the woman i want to become.
what she looks like, how she acts,
who she is.

i'm becoming me.

LIFE girl

tonight is so very interesting.
i'm wearing a sweatshirt
in the middle of a texas summer.
it's rainy and gross outside,
but i love it.
my head is cloudy like never before,
but it's not a bad thing this time.
i feel like writing a haiku.
who doesn't enjoy a good haiku?
trying to remember what day it is.
oh LIFE!

i want to take a trip.

girl with a job

i knew the Lord would be faithful in my requests.
i knew He would take care of things.
trusting the Lord gets easier as i move forward in life.

i've got a new job!
i am joining the team at Artistry Marketing
as their first junior copywriter.
i couldn't be more thrilled!
i knew after my first meeting there,
that was where i wanted to be.
and God is faithful.

this is pretty amazing.
i'm working where i want to work,
doing what i want to do,
at barely 23.
and the best part:
i'm furthering the Kingdom.
God is good.
