the spirit

“I watched the spirit, like a dove flying down out of the sky, making himself at home in him."John 1:32

1 Corinthians 2: 9-16
However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"— but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment: "For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

making lemondae

loving these neutrals with the yellow pops. it's a great semi neutral color but has the aspect of boldness to it.

1 Peter 5:6-7

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up
 in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you

praying this today

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I'll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all

So I'll stand
My soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

-Hillsong "the Stand"

This is my prayer today, for my week, for my life. I want to stand all day and my whole life with my arms high and my heart abandoned and let the Lord control me and run me with no input of my own. I try too hard... I try too hard to do things in my life, to keep them going because I am relied on so much...  I want to surrender my whole self to the Lord each and every day of my life. That I would lay at His feet in awe of how wonderful He is. That IS enough.

oooh livia

I don't by any means enjoy this girl's heart but she does have great taste in style.

happy birthday

to my dear Nat Dub.

i've loved you since the 6th grade. I am so grateful for all the time we've spent together, all of the life we lived and all of the wonderful memories thus far.

you are a wonderful strong woman with such poise. I am inspired by your drive and your ability to get things done. (in 6th grade ...we raised money to get a class pet mouse (??haha ) and started a class newspaper -really it was all you but I got to take a little credit for your fabulousness). I've always felt you've understood my maturity as you share it as well but with the unique way of letting loose which left us laughing A LOT. thank you for that.

I love you sister. Hope you're birthday is spectacular

how cute were we... doing what we did best- tubing, and laughing

senior prom.. looking sexy.

This is my desire
This is my return
This is my desire to be used by you

You want to be real
You want to be emptied inside
And I know my heart is to feel you near
And I know my life
It's to do your will
It's to do your will

All my life I have seen where you've taken me
Beyond all I have hoped and there's more left unseen
There's not much I can do to repay all you've done so I give my hands to use

last day..

friends, I am in San Diego for just one last day! 
we've had a fun trip. Spending lots of time with Brian's dad and his wife.
We get back to Portland late tonight and I hear the weather is better there than here.

some things i've been learning:

*i don't like golf- playing it, watching it or talking about it
*I don't like eating out every meal
*san diego is supposed to be sunny and it's been failing me for the last 5 days
* I really love FRIENDS
*Peachwave is still my favorite froYo place
*it's hard to go on vacation with other people because everyone has their own thought of what they want to do
*pizza is my hardest gluten/dairy temptation (I'm allergic to both)
*i love not having to go to work but I'm excited to go back to a real life
*I'm almost done reading Eat Pray Love. Some pages are great, others are crap but I'm powering through
*I'm grateful to feel settled into my life and marriage
* The iphone helps us get around everywhere and I have no idea what we would do without it. read a map!?
