Today my fiance picked me up at 620. He drove us out to this rad spot. We climbed to the top of the coolies. He laid out a blanket, and we cuddled while watching the sunrise and sipping on freshly made coffee. He then proceeded to give me my birthday gift: a wonderfully crafted story of our journey thus far from his perspective. It was filled with loads of pictures and cute little commentaries. At...
Weekends well spent
Coffee dates, lazing around, birthday party, breakfast dates, lunch dates. I love my friends.
After not seeing you for a few days I cannot begin to explain the sheer bliss in your sweet embrace. I am so pleased you are home.
Ours is a word that brings me great joy. Used in the context of the future I cannot help but blissfully ponder its path. Hand in hand we walk towards something grand. A life together. A unity worth fighting for. My heart beats for you, this I know to be true. Purely pursuing, ours brings great promises entrusted by the King. Above all, ours is an offering to the kingdom. We lay it all down at your...

Patient anticipation for this voyage we call life. Stumbling blocks beneath our feet we press on. Worldly thoughts surround us and perplexed by our pursuit of the kingdom, hinderances fall and we rise up. A firm foundation, unshakable in its frame, we stand stall. Hand in hand we cry out, thy kingdom come. Our vision, let thy will be done. Our banner, as iron sharpens iron.
I miss you. Please come home now. Thanks.

My treasures will not rust. Their kingdom is eternal. Their King is alive. I am blessed.

Kick started my long boarding career today. It was superb. I cannot wait to learn more and more. Hopefully by the end of the summer I will be able to board with great confidence.
When people keep telling me we should tie the knot right now because they find great joy at the thought of us being together and being power houses for the kingdom, I can’t help but get excited. Please dear God give me great patience, Amen.
The thought of the future is secondary to right now, but often it seems to consume us. We look ahead at what’s to come and our present life languishes. We run full speed ahead to the next pit stop, missing the little things along the way.Our feet become tired, calloused from unsteady ground. All we have to do is stop, and simply just be. Let’s fall down at his feet in worship. He has...
Last night I forgot I had left my laundry in the washer all day and needed to put it in the dryer but it was 1130 at night and I am not allowed to put it in after 9. So I prayed God would silence the laundry so I would not disturb anyone. Long story short I put the laundry on for an hour and God being the radical guy he is finished the dryer in a half hour and all my clothes were completely dry...
Simply the best day. Praise God for two months with you and a super fabtastic date to celebrate. Praise God for amazing friends and birthday celebrations. Praise God for rich and radical conversation with Dayna. Praise God for answered prayers.

Holy moly this show gives me a heart attack every time. It’s unreal. Boy oh boy.
Today I found my toms from two years ago that I thought I had misplaced. So pleased. They are perfection.
Genesis 26: Finally, the whole tone of this chapter, indeed of Isaac’s whole life, is that he busies himself with the digging of wells. In the face of opposition, in the face of strife, in the face of trouble and turmoil: Isaac digs wells. Though there are those who would fill his wells with earth, though there are those who would try to steal the precious, life-giving water found beneath them:...
Morning coffee dates with my man
What a wonderful flick. Go see it. Not to mention Andy off the Office is one of the main voices, what a treat.
Two coffee dates and double date to finish the day off!!
Waxing my legs at 1130 at night is never not a good idea

This year I have learned to make myself truly available to works of the kingdom. Daily I see his hands moving. Excitement overwhelms me as I submit to his will. Fear of man no longer holds me captive, the shackles are broken. I rejoice in his great name.
