Something I Wrote.
Dear God, When I’m drowning in dark waters… You’re the gleam of light, shining at the surface. When it seems life has gone bland… You always find ways to leave me breathless. When I have done you wrong, and let you down… You love me, you forgive me. When temptation tries to take me over… You are the voice of wisdom, shouting boisterously. When there is...
Chile: To All of My Brothers and Sisters.
Disasters happen. Suffering happens. Sometimes, it is times like these that drive us further away from the Lord. Other times, these are the times that bring us closer to him. We need to open our eyes to see that he lets suffering happen for a reason. He loves us all so much, that watching us suffer is harder for him than it is for us. Something that we all need to remember is that when this...
Sometimes, life has you just barely holding on. Although the good times are QUITE plentiful, my faith is really what is keeping me charged and going. I need to start being more responsible with school. I need to find the motivation and the discipline. Lord, the Scripture says that you love the prosperity of your children. You know the importance of studies through which only I can have a bright...
Talent Show! SISTER!
Emma was AMAZING tonight in the talent show!! She sang “Hurt” by Christina Aguilera with her lovely accompanist Fraces Chan (or Chances Fran)! Some of the other acts that REALLY stood out were, of course, Brittnie Price singing “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles, Catie Pauley with her Irish Dancing, Christine Petersilge singing “Braille” by Regina Spektor (but of...

The Last Six to Seven Months in a Nutshell.
Life since end of Summer/Fall of 09’ has been completely and totally amazing. The people that I have met and grown close to are wonderful. The fact that all of my older friends still love me no matter my age is more than I could ever ask for. If I were not a part of Life Teen and RCIA, I can barely imagine where I would be in life right now. I would be lost. I would be lonely. I would not...

I AM ALLOWED TO GO ON SPRING RETREAT!!!!!!
Alive Again - Matt Maher ♥
Although going into this faith, I swore I would never listen to Christian music because I’m one of those lame indie/classic rock hipsters, I think I’ve caved. This song makes me so emotional. It’s really perfect for my current state, being a convert. It has been playing at a lot of special moments for me, too. Now I can’t stop listening to it. I’ll probably be...

Life; Love ♥
A single night in my life changed me, and the way I look at everything. Although to some people, it may have been just another Sunday Life Night, to me it was a signifigant day in my life. The things I learned were so amazing and unimaginable that I could go on about them for hours. But, instead, I will simply say this: January 31st, 2010 was the night when I discovered my true calling. That...

Bella - Official Website. Watch the trailer! →
Just got back from the first “Friday Night Lent Film Fest” movie night at Arla’s. We watched “Bella,” and I LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I ended up having SOO much fun tonight. There was a really small turnout… just Anthea, Taime, Vince, Danny, Liz, Arla and her family, and I. Lots of interesting conversations… Haha. If you haven’t seen this movie, DO IT....
I gave up Facebook for lent. I’m on day three, and it’s already hard. Well, that shows how much I needed to do this. I’m not using this as a replacement, because that would ruin the purpose of giving up Facebook. BUT, I can use this sometimes. Although so far I only know one person.
Since I haven’t had a tumblr for over an hour yet, I don’t really know what I’m doing. Hence why it is currently lame.
