tomyfuturespouse: Would you mind if I wrote our story, but did it as a romance novel? Somehow, I don’t think you’ll mind ;) If you are a writer, I will be more than thrilled.
"I just knew."
You know how they say it? How people say that thing? “Did you know they were the one?” “I always knew.” “When did you know for sure?” “Pretty much the first time I met him (her).” “How did you know?” “I just knew.” “No, but, like… how did you know?” “I just knew.” (usually followed by some...
Only two days left of my internship. Then… it’s time for a little more freedom in my life. Unfortunately, it’s not too too much more… …but, fortunately, there’s at least some. (Always a silver lining.) I’m excited to be done, a little sad it’s ending. Today I did the layout for two whole pages on my own. (Yes, two whole pages, I know…...

Jesus takes really good care of me.
It’s crazy how much can happen in your life when you just let him in and trust him to take care of everything. We cannot outdream him.

And trust me, this is the kind of change you want in your...

Lord, please be in my heart and on my lips. (Prayers for fortitude, please. I am called to tell my story. Your story, our story. Called to tell the Good News. **Much courage is needed.)

Thought for the Day:
I don’t want to lay bricks just to lay bricks. I don’t want to build without a purpose. I want to lay a foundation for something beautiful. Me - yeah - I can make something beautiful. (With His help.) ((I may have put that in parentheses, but really that’s the most important part.))

What I Really Wish
…that people would stop reading 50 Shades of Grey. From “Our Sunday Visitor”: http://www.osv.com/tabid/7621/itemid/9722/No-Grey-area-when-it-comes-to-immoral-trilogy.aspx Some good points are made here. More than enough for me to stay clear. I, for one, like having a conscience that can remain at rest. Praying for the reception of this book… Mostly, that there...

The parish where I work as a volunteer youth minister is about to start putting on an event like this. XLT stands for Exalt, and it’s all about worshiping our Lord. There’s music, talks, etc. included here… and this is just an example of one podcast. There are several out there with all different kinds of themes. If you go to LifeTeen’s website and search XLT, they should...
God likes writing and telling stories. So do I. Made in His image in likeness – in more ways than one. And I think that’s pretty neato burrito.
