Some random encouragements!

Just a few good thoughts.

Sanctus Real
Lead Me (tweaked by me)

Lead me with strong hands
stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love,
Chasing things that I should give up
I'll show the world I'm willing to stand
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

I don't know who originally said these. But they're good.

"Stand up for what is right. Even if you are standing alone."

"Reach for the moon. Because if you fall short you'll land on a star."

"Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God."

And this one I thought of while listening to Mr. Rob preach on a Sunday while in Moldova.

"I might not have a pillar of cloud leading me like the Israelites. But in the stormy times of life the clouds remind me that God is right here."

Hope y'all enjoyed these!

This week I dare you to be a salt shaker!(if you are confused reference Matthew 5:13-16 in the Bible)

In his love,

What a WEEK!

Crazy. Insane. Wacky. Weird. And o yeah CRAZY! Just a few words that come to mind when I think about this week.
Sunday was fairly normal. Service and Sunday School. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Monday. My first official day of school! It went well.
Tuesday. Day 2 of school. Lots of reading.
Wednesday! School. I had a essay I didn't know about til that morning. (by the way it was 400 words. AND I got a 97!!!) Went from that to Mission First! Man. Love those kids. Desean gave me the biggest hug! That kid is so funny! Went from that to dinner at church. Chicken tenders! That's what I'm talkin' bout! (not quite as good as Crestridge though..) Next I lead Ga's! (Yes I was in charge.) 7&8 year old girls... Aaaaa! But it went pretty well. Got home. CRASHED! Slept real well that night.
Thursday. School. Biology and English test. They went well. Had girl time with my sis watched Pride and Prejudice.
Friday! School. World history test. Went to Kroger! Went for a walk.
Today. Woke up 9:30. Chocolate chip muffin for breakfast. Went power walking at noon. (way! too hot Note to self wait til later next time) Now I am lazy. I have the symphony tonight.. Must... Stay... Awake...

In other news.. It has been a little over a week since I got home! I MISS EVERYBODY!!

Holding His hand,

Buna!! And welcome!

In case you haven't already to learn about my trip go to
For those of you who followed me on my trip and prayed for me thank you!!
Your prayers were felt. And greatly appreciated!
This blog is not about our group or trips and such. But just about my average week.
Which usually ends up not so average. I'll keep y'all updated on the goings on over here.
For example. Tomorrow I will be teaching 2nd grade girls missions. (which I haven't prepared for yet...)
And I will be working at Mission First. The inner city kids after school program place. It is a great organization! And I totally love being with the kids there. They are absolute angels... Except when they're not! I am back in school! It's going pretty well. But it's still school.
On this here blog I will also be posting different verses or devotions that I really enjoyed.
Check back every Saturday night!

Galatians 2:20
Running on love,
