During the months of May, June, July, August, these feet…
- roamed the East Texas’ piney woods for seven weeks
- jumped in joy at a child’s victory
- climbed the Great Wall
- touched foreign lands, walked with foreign people persistently loved by Him
- hiked a Puerto Rican rainforest
- dipped in His most gorgeous and vast creation
- have been relentlessly blessed and washed by Jesus Christ
Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee…

Today Bella said Jesus makes her happy because He died for her sins. She said this when I asked her, “who is Jesus?”
He makes us happy. Nine-year old Bella reminded me of this today.

Tonight I caught my first fish at camp. Madison helped me. Madison said she’s an only child, but she really wants a sibling. I offered to be her sister because I told her I was also an only child. She was so happy, she almost didn’t believe me. It was funny too, because I also found myself to be happy.
"now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. all that i know now is partial and incomplete, but then i will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely"
when was the last time your heart literally fluttered and skipped a beat while reading the Word? NLT is seriously my jaaaaaam. i would say along with my new headlamp, my new NLT bible is the best purchase of summer 2014 (& at only $10!!!!). Lord, your Word is hands-down the most Romantic literature ever… you have won my heart all over again
well i’ll be the words on the pages / if you be my sweet melody / and the tune can keep changin, cause i’ll keep arranging / and this is the song that we’ll sing / i wanna love you, forever i do / i wanna spend all of my days with you / to carry your burdens, be the wind at your back / i wanna spend my forever / forever like that

memories keep playing back / all the nights we used to love / just wondering how we used to was / how we used to was
parents bought me this uke 4 yrs ago and i am now very interested in it + i think i’m gonna have an interesting summer
