...thank you


It's been on my heart a lot the way that we treat on another in this world. Everything is about status and money and appearance...what you have and don't have...getting the newest most updated product(s)'s about self. But what truly matters. In the end what are you really achieving. When you get old will you truely be happy with the life you lived?

God gave me a heart to hurts when I see those in pain or those in need, and I want to make more of a statement with what God has given me. We in this world need to open our eyes to those that are hurting, because what are we really doing to help? If we aren't living it then we are just talking about it and what will talking do if there is no action. The greed that fills so many individuals up is sad and unfortunate! We are so focused on 'me me me' that we have little time to look that those that barely living, where as we are focused on obtaining the newest iphone. Why?

1 Corinthians 8:13-15
"Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, as it is written "He who gathered much did not have too much, and he gathered little did not have too little."

I love street art so much. Banksy's art is so good! That fact that it is street art is great but the meaning behind his art is the largest reason why I love his art so much!


Graduation is less than a month for me (May 14th) and I will officially be done with my work load May 3rd. Lately the pressure of finishing the work has been overriding the excitement of finishing college. Though through all this craziness, I am grateful that I serve an amazing and loving God. It is so easy to get distracted and take my eyes off God and place them upon my work and  begin to worry. But thankfully God calms my soul and brings me the peace I need when things get crazy and I begin to doubt, he reassures me that I can do all things when he is first in my life. I am so grateful that I am not alone and that I have an amazing, peaceful, loving, strong and wise God. 

Matthew 11:28-30
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take me yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

This past week I lost focus of my hope, and placed it on school. How quickly the storm came, but I began to pray and listen to God...

Romans 5:5
"And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."

The storm is passing. God gives me hope, and in him my heart becomes secure. I am thankful that he shows and teaches me how to trust. God gives my life meaning, and him alone.

......By the way I am SO happy that it is spring; seeing blooming flowers everywhere!! 
These are ranunculus flower, one of my favorites (: They are so beautiful!!!!

Take some time out of your day and color. (:

Thankful, Joyful, Crazy .... Saturday

Well I'm still reading, writing and working on my papers but....

Spent sometime today just hanging out with a friend, finding joy in the simple things.

Here are some pictures:

We meet up to study but rather talked about God and really how amazing he is. We feed the birds, (well Christina did) I enjoyed the amount of birds that joined us at the park (: The best part was laying down on the grass gazing at the sky and taking comfort in how big God is. Ahhh So GREAT!!!

Now I'm at the te cafe (if you live or ever visit Pittsburgh check this place out!!) Enjoying wonderful apricot black tea, reading statistics (oh, such fun ha!), and listening to Tegan & Sara (:

A good Saturday (:


The Little Things

Philippians 4:4-13

I am striving to find joy in the little things.
Being that I have a massive amount of work to and begin this week and finish by the end of April (so I can graduate...yay (: ), I am trying to ease my soul and remind myself it's just work. Stressing about it will not make it get done any faster or at that, help me get it done any faster. One of my very good friends Kirstin sent me a note on stress. Here it is:

Kirstin is such an amazing and great friend! I was encouraged when I received this (: I want to encourage you all out there to slow down and take to heart each of your days, they will be gone before you even realize it, so I urge you to slow down and enjoy them! My prayer is that you appreciate life in its entirely.

...I like "don't rely on your memory write things down" haha...I've been doing that I A LOT lately. I have a little book my roommate Terra gave me, and I have been written down the things to do once graduated (:

Which is your favorite?

At this moment I'm simply enjoying the day at hand. Sitting outside enjoying the sun (that just came out) and life...while I complete a paper. I feel at peace sitting outside and while typing this paper ... simply finding joy in doing so (:

Enjoying the smell and beautiful of God's art:

Philippians 4:11-13

"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do anything through him who gives me strength."
