Subject:some cute australian dude and passion fruit iced tea lemonade...
Time:09:33 am
Current Mood:contemplativecontemplative
did i mention i love airports?

sooo many people to watch. so many people to interact with.

right now i'm sipping on my passion fruit iced tea lemonade and staring at this hot australian guy...

siiigh he's really cute. we talked for a brief moment cuz he talked and i was like YAAY YOU'RE FROM AUSTRALIA - and then i got embarrassed.

but anyways, so i'm going to guatemala. it would be awesome if you could throw up some prayers for me - safety and health. i'm taking all these volleyball jerseys down for the orphans my sister works with to wear and play in, and i had 2 GINORMOUS 60-pound bags to check in and i swear i looked like i was moving there. but i realized that i probably didn't even bring enough clothes for myself for a week cuz i was trying to squeeze in every last jersey.

so besides my awesome drink and attractive company, i'm sitting here in complete awe and wonder of God...

"seven times perfection...seven places that's what He went through for me and for you". Jesus Christ bled from seven places: head, back, side, hands, and feet - so that we could be with God.

wow.

i hope i brought enough socks.

if only we saw each other as we will in heaven.

if only we knew how precious we were in God's eyes.

if only we could view one another as beloved creations.

if only all of this...

we would learn to appreciate one another.
we would learn to speak each word with care.
we would learn to treasure each moment.

it is so easy to see the faults of others. my prayer is that i can see those around me, not as a screwup or weird, but as loved by God. that each person might be as precious and wonderful to me as they are to God.

i love people. people are like my caffeine. they keep me going even on days where i dont think i can get out of bed.

i love answering the question...so what are your plans for the future?

not because i have all the answers.
not because i know exactly what i'm going to do.

but because I'm part of HIS story.

i always start off by saying, well next year I'm going to Wheaton.

the first decision completely led by God that I have said YES to.

there will be a million more decisions, ones that I might not even be conscious of. but one thing is for sure...they will be of Him.

Today is the day...
take a chance.
just do it.
are you living for Him?
Decide.

Subject:talks with my grandma...
Time:04:51 pm
Current Mood:pensivepensive
it only takes about five minutes.

to make a space of time for my grandmother.

she's awesome. if anyone has ever met her, you would gladly receive a hug and a kiss and an offer to call her Granny.

i go in there to talk to her, and honestly, she will give me advice on what is plaguing me even if i haven't spoken a word.

i can only pray i am as wise as her when i am older.

"The challenge for a person is the means to know oneself and to grow. Suffering, misfortune, and injustice bring to light the diamond that lies in the heart of true man. They are the downfall of the one who has nothing inside.

For a person to believe, is to never forget what has come before; rather it is to know and to put the past aside to better see oneself, and to see the goal. And the goal of nam is to be oneself. Because to be yourself is to go towards others. Like a stream leads to the sea." - Martin Gray

so much more for me to learn, yet i sit back and wait for lightning to strike me? no more.

i must fight for knowledge to change the world.

what's really bad is when you're awake when myspace is undergoing maintenance.

what's even worse is that i'm sitting here contemplating rhyme scheme.




it was a fantastic weekend, and frankly i'm not ready for it to be over. precisely why i am procrastinating the moment when reality sets in and i'm at a loss for words. for the meantime, i will not let down my livejournal viewers. it's true i do this for my own amusement, yet at the same moment i wonder in the back of my mind who will take the time to read my thoughts from a depressing myspace maintenance happening which has thus led me to spill my innermost thoughts that i whisper to myself and that ultimately land in the contents of this livejournal entry.




whether bob rhymes with mob or simply doesn't rhyme with tod....

it doesn't bother me.

will my weakness for an hour make me suffer for a lifetime?

is there any way to be made whole again?











if i'm healed, renewed, and find forgiveness, find the strength i've never had...


will my scars forever ruin all God's plans?

Current Mood:calmcalm
i've been spending a lot of time lately just thinking.
and praying.
being with me.
it's been amazing.

when i've overcome the trivial things, i just sit back and reflect on how amazing my life is.


but at the same time i can't help but wonder,


If I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful?
Or just a beautiful disaster...
