Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my 
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my
Of whom shall I be afraid?
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
Though an army may encamp
against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
in this I will be confident.

One thing i have desired of the 
That I will seek:
That I may dwell in the house 
of the Lord 
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the 
And to inquire in His Temple.
For in the time of trouble,
He shall hide me in his 
In the secret place of His 
He shall hide me; 
He shall set me high upon a 

And now my head shall be
lifted up above my enemies 
all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices 
of joy in His Tabernacle;
I will sing, yes I will sing praises 
to the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry with 
my voice!
Have mercy also upon me, and 
answer me.
When You said, "Seek My
My heart said to You "Your 
face, Lord I will seek."
Do not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away
in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake
O God of my salvation.
When my father and my
mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care 
of me.

Teach me Your way, O Lord
And lead me in a smooth path,
because of my enemies.
Do not deliver me to the will 
of my adversaries; 
For false witnesses have risen 
against me, 
And such as  breath out 
I would have lost heart, unless 
I had believed
that I would see the goodness 
of the Lord
In the land of the living. 

Wait on the Lord;
be of good courage,
And he shall strengthen your heart; 
Wait, I say, on the Lord!

A Sweet Break

Tyler came home. Thank you Lord.
I can't even describe how much we needed it.
A sweet time for pure laughter. 2 months of tears is enough. 
God has been faithful, making us stronger through the process.
I'll never doubt God's sufficiency. Ever. Again.

Highlights of nine days together:

--Seeing him walking up at the airport with orange (whoops did I say that?) BLONDE hair thinking, it's a wig... O crap, it's not!--

--Devotions and Prayer together every morning--

--Hanging out in the city & finding silver shoes--

-All the sweet little things he had planned for me--

--Hearing a song,  that was written & sung just for me!!!!--

~I miss my best friend~

What angels eat? I think possibly not...

If I were an angel, I'd eat creme' brulee, black tie mousse cake, and sticky buns.
 Nevertheless, it was still quite yummy and 
cures a little bit of that spring fever!

To Bring a Smile to My Face

These pictures are going up on my bedroom wall later today... I hope.
That depends how much energy I can muster together
to get up off the couch!

But I just have to say, that guy is pretty darn handsome, and ALWAYS brings a smile to my face!

Shoulda had a V8!

I need reminders. I need things to stare me straight in the face. Or whack me up side the head(shoulda had a V8!). 
God, you choose your method.

That's why this sign, was a God-send and 
is now very strategically placed. 

This verse stares at me first thing when 
I open my eyes 
in the morning and is the last thing I see as 
I fall asleep.

My prayer when I see it: Lord, help me to help you (NO, not that Grace! I know you want to fix everything, but you 
are not all-powerful, are not all-knowing, and do not have the ability to do all things!). 

Okay, God you're right. 

Let's start over with my prayer:
 Lord, help me to trust
 everything(EVERYTHING, Grace)
to your capable hands. 

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
      And lean not on your own understanding;
      In all your ways acknowledge Him,
      And He shall direct your paths. 

Psalms 16:9
   A man’s heart plans his way,
      But the LORD directs his steps.

To many emotions cloud over me. It makes it hard to think, so instead I pray.

It's okay to ask for what you want, right?

God has been speaking to me daily through my study through Matthew. 
 The verses seem to jump off the page. My Savior speaks to me: "My child, I am bigger than your self proclaimed  mountain's. I am able and willing to bless you, but you must believe... you must have faith. In fact those aren't mountains at all, merely little bumps on the in path. I have your life in my hand, trust me. Follow me.

Matthew 6:33
Matthew 7:24-25
Matthew 8:24-26
Matthew 11:28-30

Then we have the story of the five loaves and the two fish. Matthew14:13-21.

On a lighter, more random note...
 Number one: crying gives you a headache like no other. Any agreement on this?
Number two: I really want a home of my own. To clean, to cook, to decorate. To be together.
