May 13th Lord willing I will graduate. And I will not be blogging again most likely until then. I will be busy with school and work etc. I am excited to go back and finish strong!

Today was my last day at work here in Columbus and it was bitter sweet knowing I won't come back probably as I will probably move somewhere in PA after graduation. But it was good knowing that I learned alot at my old workplace and enjoyed the people there alot also.

I will miss keeping up with my small band of blog friends! May you be blessed these next few months!

"A true Christian posseses a consolation which affords him more sweet satisfaction than the greatest wealth, or power, because he belives that his affairs are so regulated by the Lord as to promote his salvation." (p. 41, Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life)

This reminds me of Joseph...After darknesss, light.

"A faithful believer will even in all circumstances meditate on the mercy and fatherly goodness of God." (p.43)

"We must assign first place to the knowledge of our religion, for that is the beginning of our salvation.
But our religion will be unprofitable if it does not change our heart, pervade our manners, and transform us into new creatures."(17)

The book from which these quotes are taken is probably first on my list of top 5 favorite books. It is intensly rich and practical. It is a small paperback book to boot. It covers alot of ground though.

daisy -Switchfoot


, originally uploaded by pht.



daisy, give yourself away
look up at the rain
the beautiful display
of power and surrender
giving us today
when you yourself away

rain, another rainy day
it comes up from the ocean
to give herself away
she comes down even
and all of us the same name
when you give yourself away

let it go
daisy let it go
open up your fists
this fallen world
doesn't hold your interest
doesn't hold your soul
daisy let it go

pain, give yourself a name
call yourself contrition
aberits of fame
giving isn't easy
if anybody'd like to say
if you give yourself away

daisy, why another day
why another sunrise
who's gonna take the blame
for our redemptive motion
and every rainy day
when he gives himself away

let it go
daisy let it go
open your fists
this fallen world
it doesn't hold your interest
it doesn't hold your soul
daisy let it go

Christ the fountain of Living waters

Healing Waters by Michelle Tumes
This has to be my favorite song of hers. The lyrics are so poignant.

I've built a bridge
All of my strength cannot cross over
I stand at the edge
The end of a road that I have followed
Sinking from the weight of my own world
Wanting the waves of Your ways to wash my feet

Healing waters
Solace flows
Through the river of forgiveness to my soul
Oh, I need You
Healing waters

Pour over me
Water to clean all my intentions
Baptising streams
I swim in the freedom of redemption
Floating on the sea of purity
Knowing I can dive in the love that rescues me

Memories are raging high
Floods so deep they touch the sky
All the things I've done to You
All the parts of life untrue
Healing comes from outstretched hands
Saving me from what I am
Carry me

I can't say how many times my heart has felt the power of these words!

Everything by Lifehouse

She reminded me of this song [make sure your speakers are turned up]

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That's leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose...you're everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause you're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything,everything
You're all I want your all I need
You're everything, everything.
You're all I want you're all I need.
You're everything, everything
You're all I want you're all I need, you're everything, everything.

And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

This is my favorite song!
