this last weekend was awesome. eric and i went to the beach and met my family there. we enjoyed a beautiful sunny day out on the beach. we also hiked mt. neahakanie that morning and were able to see the clear coastline. sunday was a california day, but we missed out. we went to church instead. i made cookie dough this weekend too and it got eaten very quickly thanks to joe, tad, thomas, josh, nathan, eric, mom, dad, and i. and then i got to hang out with tori and emily last night which was awesome and we laughed a lot :) im glad i have cousins who im close with...

anyway, now im back at school. today's picture is for thomas because i love him and it reminded me of him.

until next time!

quicksand vs. greener grass

SOTD: sometimes i can't make it alone by mae
WIKI: green tea cupcakes

i've done this before. i thought i could deal with this loneliness. but i was wrong.

two years ago, i was alone. i was alone and i dealt with it. i was alone and it was hard. i was alone and i was ok with it. i was alone and i learned a lot about myself. i was alone and i ended up enjoying it.

this year, i've been alone. i've been alone in the midst of community. i've been alone with everyone around me having relationships. i've been alone being away from my community.

this year, i know that i'm not alone. i have a God who loves me, a family who cares deeply and supports me, a boyfriend who is constantly loving and encouraging me, and friends, who, even though i've been away, still jump back to right where we left off.

but it's still hard.

during the week, i feel stagnate. i am bored. everyday im here i feel like a little more of me is dying. im scared i'll come back home and not be me anymore. i live for the weekends where i feel alive again. and then when i leave to come back to school, i hope the life i felt over the weekend will get me by till the next weekend.

sometimes i hope i haven't ruined everything by being away. i haven't kept up some relationships i know i should have. i hope those people don't think that means i love them any less. i hope they know that i've been waiting and anticipating the day i come back and am able to be a part of their lives again. i hope they know it's killed me knowing that i haven't been there this year. i've missed out on so much that i wish i hadn't had to miss. i hope they know i'm sorry. i hope they accept me back.

goodness, i cannot tell anyone how excited i am to come back home. i will finally be back in my element. i'll be able to live and not feel dead. i'll be able to get involved in church again. i just want to be part of a community. i want to be part of something bigger than myself.

and just so you know, the grass is greener on the other side. the grass was greener where i came from and im excited to go back and not die in this quicksand.

light up the sky

SOTD: the sun by melpo mene
WIKI: make willow string

where are you?

better yet, where am i?

i've been weaving in and out of the traffic of my busy life. i slip into an alleyway where i am convinced you will not find me. yet, in the midst of the darkness and solitude...

you are there.
you appear.
you want me.

i give up. i give it all up. my pride cannot withstand your love.

i am still apprehensive. i don't doubt your forgiveness, i doubt mine. can i forgive myself? but he said to me, "my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." therefore i will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that christ's power may rest on me.

let your love light up my life...
