Sometimes you’re talking with a boy and he keeps saying you’re cute and you have to tell him that he’s saying that too much. This is the first time this has ever happened to me. Pretty crazy, huh? I think I heard it from a certain person more today than I have heard it collectively from any non-boyfriend ever since I understood what “cute” was. While I don’t think that being called cute is necessarily a good thing, it did make me laugh quite a bit. So, thanks Felix! ^_^ I appreciate your ability to make me laugh!

Ten Miles Wide – Solomon’s Wish

Not intending to mislead her
But idolatry, like a fever,
Was burning her up unaware
He was everything and anything
And nothing could ever bring him down

And so it goes, pedestals only stand so long
Where was her faith when he was gone

Ten miles wide and one inch deep
An endless surface with nothing underneath
Underneath her vast exterior
Her depth was proven to be inferior
Her faith was ten miles wide and one inch deep

In the wake of disillusion
Left searching for solution
She was forced to redefine
All of the things she would never have to question

And so it goes, pedestals only stand so long
She’s looking for a faith that goes beyond…


And now she knows, pedestals only stand so long
She’s looking for a faith that goes beyond…


True story. I guess I’m not the only one who’s been in that situation before. Before I knew it, I was letting someone become my everything- inadvertantly placing the adoration that belonged to God alone in the hands of a mere man. I know there’s something to be said for love and sacrafice in a relationship, but God not only should be on top, He needs to be on Top.

Although, I won’t allow man to be an idol for me, I will still be obedient and submissive to my husband (God willing). What a joy it would be to sit at his feet and wash them – that I may be a servant and a representative of Christ for him. *sigh* All in His time 🙂

Letting Go

I’m letting go
I’m giving in
No more waiting
No more sin
My heart is open
Remove my doubt
Give me desire to know
What you’re about

I’m letting go
You have my life
My joy, my love
My pain, my strife
You have my thoughts
And all I bring
Take my silence
Let my life sing

I’m letting go
Of all I desire
All that’s left
Is consuming fire
I’m letting go
Lord, take my heart
Give this sinner
A brand new start



And because I like music and youtube, here’s a video for ya.

Todays Playlist and a few words

Starting off my 3 song life (as of today) story was Audio Adrenaline with “The Good Life.” The strong messege of this song reminds me that even when “the people that I’ve loved the most have turn their backs and ran” I still have the good life, because I have Jesus, and he’s all that matters. This song got chased down with a good dose of “Getting Into You” by Relient K reminding me that God’s not concerned with what I’ve done in the past, but what I will do with the life that he is giving me. Finally, I sat back and reflected on the way my heart attitude is changed and how I can agree with Brandon Heath in that “I’m Not Who I Was.”

Those are just a few songs that might help you relate to what I’ve been feeling lately, but I’ve been singing and jumping around for joy because The Afters are still making me happy with Myspace Girl ^_^ There’s something else that’s been making me jump around and be happy lately too, but I hardly think it’s blog material. If ya want to know you can always e-mail me or whatever 🙂

 Anyways, this is a little something I wrote on a coupon thing from meijer the other day, because I thought of it while I was walking out of the store. It’s no where close to finished, but it might be good for a chorus or something. Here it is:

I want to walk with you
Until I can’t lift my feet
I want to sing your name
Driving down the street
I want to life you up
Like you’ve lifted me
Cause when you walk with me
Oh, you set me free


Oh yeah, and I get to volunteer at our Regional Science Olympiad tomorrow! w00t! Hurray for hanging out with a bunch of geeks and nerds, and ex-chemistry teacher ^_^ I’m so blessed!

Wait – The Afters

Sometimes when you’re listening to you mp3 player on shuffle, it plays just the song you need to hear … *sighs*


I have a friend who can play this on his guitar… I think he’s getting pretty good at it too

Why Today’s Been Great ^_^

Well, I’ll start off by saying, today has been great! I had class this morning and everything went just peachy. Then I planned on writing essays/studying for my history exam, but I was pleasantly interrupted by some conversation with my friend Mary. We hung out and chatted for a while and studied for awhile. During one part of our chatting a young man sitting at the same table as us chimed in, and I ended up talking to him for a while. So, I have a new friend named Felix 🙂 New friends make me happy.

So, I got most of my history essays written, and talked with Felix, and then I went to softball practice. Practice went fairly well other than a few minor mistakes. After practice, my dad took me back to school, and as I climbed the first fleet of stairs in the Gannon Building, I heard the sweet sound of guitar playing coming from a little ways up. I asked if the young man (Michael) playing the guitar minded if I listened, and we talked some, but as I was in quite a hurry to study, I cut our talk short. We exchanged phone numbers and then I went on my way. New friends make me happy! ^_^ Then I studied for about an hour and made small talk with another friend of mine. So, after studying for the exam, I got to take the exam. About 5 minutes into class I became distracted by this thought: I have to pee, I have to PEE, I HAVE TO PEE- this was just a little incentive to finish the exam as quickly as possible. There was at least one term that I missed 4 points on. We were supposed to talk about Bacon’s Rebellion… unfortunately for me, that is not something I studied, so I made up a story about a pig rebelling against a slaughter machine and losing. I think it’ll get a chuckle out of my instructor at least ^_^ Other than that, I think I got most of the points on the exam.

After relieving myself, I made my way back to the computer lab area where I spent about 10-15 minutes checking facebook before my last class of the night. Upon arriving at my Chemistry class I learned that I had the high score on our test, which I didn’t expect, so that made me super happy. I only missed one m.c. question. I was in class for roughly 2 hours, during which I payed attention and took notes, and may have actually learned something! Learning stuff is great 🙂

 After class I came home and took some pictures of the moon, but I can’t really take great pictures with my camera, so you don’t get much of the “eclipse effect”… but some of the pics before the eclipse were alright. Maybe I’ll get them up here sometime.

Also, I love Myspace Girl by The Afters!

I hope you all had a great day too! *much love and many hugs*
