Update

I have two updates that I’m really excited to talk about with you guys…

Update #1: Your girl is getting baptized on April 23rd! It’s a really big step for me and I’m extremely happy about it but also a little nervous at the same time but I’m sure everything will go fine. Instead of giving my speech up in the baptismal font, they had us all make videos and I think I’ll like that more than having to cry up there even more, but while I was making the video I was not loving the amount of awkward I poured into it.

Update #2: I have been working on creating this “new” blog (new to you, definitely not me) for quite some time. I’m getting older and time is moving by so quickly and it’s time to start preparing for my future. I’m almost positive about many of the details that God has in store for the rest of my life including colleges, classes, and jobs (that is, unless God decides to take all of that and mix it all up). I started this blog as something to do in my spare time but never thought I would actually try to make something out of it, but here I am! Now, onto the more exciting part of what all of this actually entails…

 

  1. A new blog. It will be a mixture of lifestyle, beauty, food, fashion, and even more types of blogging. There are a few types that I will focus more on than others but that all depends on what kind of content people are looking for. I want to take the things I learn along the way that are useful for me and share them with you! Along with the kind of blogging anyone would be looking for, of course this blog will spill over into that. I want Jesus to find His way into everything I can fit Him into- which is everything.
  2. A photography outlet. As a profession, photography is the dream job that I’d like to spend my whole life doing. I’ll take you along the way with me so you can be there to watch me grow into the person I aspire to be. I have to start somewhere small so why not here?
  3. A ministry. Like I said, I want Jesus to pour through the cracks in my work that I can’t fill otherwise and hold it all together!
  4. Writing. I don’t want to be giving out too many details about this, but I have some great things in the works with writing. I love all types of writing, as you probably already know, so I’m working on different styles and trying new things out so I can make content for any and every eye to view.
  5. Social media. This is another area that I don’t want to release too much information out in either. Since I’m just starting out, my social media platforms will be starting out small as well. I plan to create more platforms as I go on different social medias like YouTube, Instagram, etc etc.

Appreciating What We Have

Today, I helped out in feeding the homeless. You see tons of people come up and take the food and say thank you and yes, that feels good but that’s not what moved me. After most got their food, we walked around and talked to the different people. It really makes me realize how much I have and that I take it for granted a lot of the time. I listened to a man talk about the feeling of a warm shower and bed to sleep in and how nice that was. He described that it was comfy to sleep on a piece of cardboard at night, and that he could sleep just fine. Most of those people explained it in a way that showed how appreciative they were of these meals, and that they were just fine. Here I am complaining about the dumb stuff half the time when they don’t even say a word. Twas a lovely day, and a lovely eye opener.

Colors

I’m not sure where half of my blog posts are even coming from because I find inspiration in the oddest things. Last night I went to a church event and decided to wear something different than usual (sweatshirt and jeans all the way woo). I wore a flannel with jeans and a cute tee and felt pretty accomplished with life, but everything I had on was either dark blue or black. I felt like I needed something with color so I proceeded to wear bright, yellow converse and I was pretty content with my clothing choice. Going forward quite a few hours, this morning after going to church with a close friend, I went to Chipotle and ordered a lovely, colorful food. Little things like color make me happy because I feel accomplished (don’t ask why because I don’t know either). Anywho, I found inspiration to do things in the colors of the days, where do you find yours?

Charged

When your car is empty, you fill it up with gas. When your stomach is empty, you fill it up with food. When your mind is empty, you fill it up with knowledge (hopefully 😄). All the things happen on a daily basis and we know exactly what to do, but it isn’t exactly that easy to do when it comes to the LORD. In fact, sometimes we don’t even realize we need a refill! We feel like nothing is going right and that we need to do it all on our own, but the LORD is the only one that can fix everything! Luckily, He is always open to us and then the easy part comes- thus, we are refilled with the Holy Spirit!
