L to the X

everyone, this is
i love her very very much.

1) she is simple and quirky.
2) she has the most beautiful blue eyes.
3) she is the most fun to take pictures of.
5) she loves Jesus oober much and shares my heart and its struggles in many many ways.

together we are learning about what it means to be still before God and know that He is God. we run together and witness His beautiful creation.

oh how i love Ellex.

p.s. ive decided to blog about my friends. one per blog.


i feel like my posts have been rather shallow lately. let me fix that.

have i told you lately how wonderful God is? i have been blessed with the absolute best group of friends. i am surrounded by lovers of God who come from all different walks yet share the same heart in seeking the beautiful face of my Savior. do you know what we did this weekend? we watched the sunrise at singing beach. there's nothing like a sunrise to take your breath away. how can anyone sit there and witness the colors change in the sky as the stars slowly fade away while the waves brush up on the beach and not attribute that magnificent occurrence to the Creator. gaahh.
it was beautiful. God is beautiful.

finalmente chica

hello friends. i apologize for the delay in blogging, but as i said before, keeping a blog in college is hard. So where do i start? I love it here. I love college. And I love the work that God is/has been doing. Im in a melancholy mood at the moment. Sitting outside on a blanket in a field, typing away with my Bible and journal (thank you mags)breathing in the fresh, cool, crisp autumn air that approaches, surrounded by trees of beautiful greens....this is my life. Yes, i do have homework i should be doing, but i can seem to ruin this lovely time by opening up plato. definitely a day-spoiler. no, i would rather sit here, and talk with my Jesus. Have i mentioned how wonderful He is?

You know, I've been having a tough time here. Not in the sense that you would think. Adjusting, making new friends, all of that stuff is not a problem. The problem is this: I've lived in a bubble. It's true! that calvary bubble exists! I never thought that being at a christian school would mean a testing of my faith, but alas, it does. It's interesting. People from all different walks of life have met, and we've sat around for hours (and i mean hours, like staying-up-til-5-in-the-morning hours) discussing theology and religion. At first it was really difficult. Listening to others views, and beliefs made me question my own faith. It was so hard. Is the God that i've known and served for the past four years not who i thought He was? is my view of god seriously screwed up? Who are You Lord? These questions freaked me out. Seriously. But it's cool, because through His word, God has revealed Himself to me. And although others might have a weird view of Him, doesn't mean their right. My God is alive and moving. He is personal and lovely. And I adore Him.
Minus tala who is taking the photo
i've had multiple blessings in the friends department. God is so good. we went to New York for two days this weekend. I just love them alot.

sorry for the lack of photos.

favorite verse as of right now: "You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah." psalm 32:7
