My sister is moving here soon, yay! All the way to SoCal from Minnesota! She's a bit excited then also sad knowing she'll be further away from the nest in Michigan. I'm currently looking into school again, I've applied and I'm really praying that the Lord can open the doors for me to attend school FT and work PT. Lord that would be a blessing! But, if not, His will and not mine.
My sister and I recently we got in a heated "text-gument" (text argument). Ever had those? There actually not too bad, alot better than verbal arguments because you think and read what you say before you deliver it (sometthing we all should do anyways but forget to do in the heat of the moment, hehe). But you better make sure your fingers are typing the right things and checking for grammar errors or else when you throw yourself under the bus. Saying things like "U are so unreliable!" can actually turn out to be "I are so unreliable!" hehe.. that actually may be a good thing, can end the argument quick! haha!
All in all, we didn't really talk things out but the next day she text me the info I asked her to (that she said she wouldn't) we're all good now. I miss her alot and ofcourse, I forgive her. IF YOU'RE READING THIS, I FORGIVE YOU! Because I know you're too stubburn to ask for it! hahaha, ok jk jk jk! But yay! I'm excited! I wove my wittle bossy, workaholic, over-tanned, over acheiver little sister. She makes me laugh until I pee. haha thats pretty serious. ;) will keep you updated on how it goes! have a good weekend!
o btw, tomorrow is my bday! yay! I turn 23! ;)
Thank you Lord for the great blessings you have poured into my life. The blessings as well as the trails. They have molded me to be stronger and wiser to further your kingdom. As I look back on my life I see the many things you have shown me. I can recall the times where I felt so alone and abandoned but you were so faithful, you reminded me that you never forsake me but that it was I who forsaked you. I pray that you continue to give me your eyes, to see the amazing things you have fo me; the hands, to do a servant's work; and your heart, of compassion and love. I know I can never give you anything that is remotely close to what you have given me, but I pray that my offering to you may be pleasant. I love you.

During the past few days I've been under mad reconstruction. God is stirring up something great in me and I'm excited to see the results. I don't remember the last time He’s stripped me down to my core like this. To be completely emptied of myself and refilled with him, it’s so refreshing.
I was humiliated, humbled and now and working my hardest to be meek. Lord work in me as I set my eyes on you. May I not lose focus and steer off on my own desires but may I have a heart that seeks for your desires.
This video is amazingly beautiful. The narrator, photos, videos, music, scripture used.. the entire composure of this video is beautiful.
I strongly encourage you to watch and read this in solitude. I pray it ministers to your heart. This is not a man written letter, yet a letter composed with scriptural doctrine; solid promises and words. Enjoy family, may His face shine upon you. :)
I would have never thought that it would happen to me. What a sudden surprise it was to me. I've always thought to myself "thats not my type, no thank you. I'll pass." But during my last therapy session we cross paths and I've thought about you constantly since then. I've fallen in love.
You, are something special. With every sip, you take me to a place of solitude in a crowded room. Your aromic scent brings my mind to peace and sets my body at ease. My, oh my, how I am so blessed to have you in my life. ;)
P.S. I enjoyed our date today at my desk. You whispered sweet words of nothing that fluttered beautifully in my ears.

I’ve always been fond of the Renaissance Era. When I was in college, my class I enjoyed the most was Art History. I actually took it for 2 semesters. I LOVED studying and learning the different types of mediums, settings and elements of the designs/artworks. It was really the only class I would study day and night for.
Anywho, I’ve fallen in love all over again. I cannot seem to take myself away from the French Renaissance style and design, especially the Rococo. The opulent architecture, ornate furniture, whimsical tapestry and beautiful muted colors are absolutely the ingredients to fulfill the romantic girly voice within me. Here are a few of my favs.
Going home to surprise family this weekend! At work right now and will be leaving by noon as my flight is scheduled to depart by 530pm. Want to know a secret? I haven't packed yet. :/
This weekend's visit will also be a celebration of mom and dad's birthdays. So it will be filled with food, candy and laughter! I'm excited as its been 2 years since our big Easter egg hunt for the kids and about the same since we last celebrated our parents' birthdays.
Yesterday I got my hair did. ;) My awesome co-worker gave me a cut and highlights and it look sabsolutely fan-tab-bu-lous! I'm so blessed to have a friend who takes time out of her busy life to make me look better. ;) haha. I was too "bland" and wanted change and am VERY happy that I have a friend who I can trust and not just a random stranger. haha.
Apart from an Egg hunt weekend with the kids and parents birthday, this weekend will also be a celebration of freedom. Freedom from sins, freedom from bondages, freedom the enemies hands. Have you ever heard of this love story? A man gave his life in exchange to your salvation.
He was beaten brutally and lead as a lamb to the slaughter house. The bible records that He knew what was going to happen to him the night the Romans arrested Jesus, he prayed and asked his disciples to pray with him. Jesus was in such agony that night, he literally sweat drops of blood (scientists have said that if you are under extreme pressure, it is possible to sweat blood). He knew what was going to happen to him and how much he was going to suffer in the next few hours. He knew that the Roman soldiers were going to arrest and beat him. He knew they were going to spit on his face and pull the hairs from his beard. Jesus knew that the soldiers were going to then whip him 39 times with cat of nine tails, a whip with 9 hooked prongs at the end. He knew the soldiers would make a crown out of thorns and put it on his head and as they put it on his head where it would cut into his scalp. Jesus knew that the soldiers would force him to carry a 400 lb wooden cross up a hill. He knew once he arrived on the top of that hill, they would nail his hands and feet to this cross. They would hang him up to die. He knew that even then the soldiers would not be satisfied, they would take a spear and pierce his side.
Jesus was a real person, he was flesh and blood like all of us, and he knew he would feel all the pain and suffering. Jesus knew all of this was going to happen to him. But He willingly gave the ultimate sacrifice, his life, so that we may obtain salvation. Jesus could have stopped it, the Bible says he could have called out and an army of angels would have come to his rescue, but he didn't. He didn't because he knew that by his dying, that was the only way we, as people could be reconciled to God. And he knew that he had to take the whipping because the bible says : "through his stripes we are healed." -Isaiah 53:5
This weekend I will celebrate. Not only with food, laughter or cakes but also with thankfulness and hands lifted up high to our gracious and soveriegn God. Will you be celebrating with me?
