"Storm Warning"

Just had to share one of my new favorite songs. And the artist with the smooth vocals?
Just a baby!

Open Hands

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

My computer is currently not in working order so I am at the library checking up on my banking, email, and facebook--you know, all of the important things:) I came across this quote and just had to share. Hopefully I will be back with more photos and a better post soon. Enjoy.

“when a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. she lives in the balance of passion and contentment. she learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation. the woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. hold everything with open hands. i don’t think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven. when you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated. and then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small.” -uknown

catching up

Thursday, August 11, 2011

It has been a busy 5 weeks since returning from Haiti, and life has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. The husband's gone for a few days working out of town, so I had a few moments to catch up on the blog.
Jake took me golfing for the first time. I got to wear one of my new visors. I'm a decent putter. My swing needs some work. And we haven't gone since. Maybe this fall.
I am not a good eater in the summertime. My appetite is very small and random, so I have been eating a lot of salads and on nights when I don't have to worry about what someone else is eating, like tonight, I have cereal.
A couple of weeks ago I spent the weekend in Traverse City celebrating my friend, Shannon's 40th birthday. It was complete with giant wine glasses, dancing, and fake tattoos. Ya know, the usual 40 yr old stuff.
Last Thursday I headed to Nashville for my friend Tiana's wedding. I finally got to get to know her future husband and spend some quality time with her preparing for the big day.
She was a beautiful bride. Like, belonged-on-the-cover-of-vogue-beautiful.
And what does the bridesmaid with no date do? (J stayed home.) Why, take pictures of herself in the bathroom and send them to her husband of course.

Hope your summer's going well, friends:)
