Seriously. More now than ever before, I’m starting to realize the reality of time. It’s not slowing down & it doesn’t wait for anyone/anything. Time is valuable and as I sit here & write this out, I think about all the fun times I’ve spent with quality people. I think about the memories I’ve had/& will have with my family. I think about the quiet times that I’ve spent alone. I think about the hard times I never wanted to face, but had to. So much time has passed & so much more will pass…
It’s seriously up to us to make the most of our time.
Today, think about the people you love. Think about the people you need to connect with. Think about the places you’ve never been & need to go. Think about the time that you can spend doing something amazing. And then do it…
amore-senza-rimpianti asked: Heyy! Your blog is so cute! I absolutely love pictures and the sayings and everything :) Just thought I would let you know :)
wow! thank you!!!
"Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus."-Matt Chandler (via faithbecomeslove)
first thing - before the sun rises tomorrow - i’m on a flight back to cali! :) oh high desert… i am coming for you - and couldn’t be more happier about it!
Are you young at heart, or an old soul? +I’m pretty sure I’m a good mixture of both. I like to do stupid, crazy things… go on adventures… have a party - you know, all that good stuff. But I also like to stay at home, clean the house, relax & read the newspaper - the actual news PAPER… I often daydream about the time I can just rest in my own home, maybe in a hammock in my backyard. Yes.. that’s the old soul part of me.
What makes someone a best friend? +All my best friends are real, hilarious, deep & fun. They’re my bf’s because they know how to go deep… but no how to be silly at the same time. My bf’s know how to listen & know when to interrupt. I love that!
What Christmas present do you remember the most? +My blue razor scooter. I wanted it SO bad and for some reason, I didn’t think I would get it. But… Santa came through that year. (Thanks Dad & Mom!)
Tell me about a movie/song/tv show/play/book that has changed your life. +”The Quest for Meekness And Quietness of Spirit” by Matthew Henry. It. Is. Amazing. And. Will. Rock. Your. World.
Name one physical feature that you like about yourself, and one you dislike. +I love my hair! And I dislike my hair! Imagine that. Haha. But seriously, I’m blessed with a good head of hair… but sometimes, it’s just hard to handle. So I guess that is why I dislike it.
Would you like to reconnect with any friends you’ve lost contact with? +There are a few people I can think of… but I am just grateful for who is in my life right now. I’m extremely blessed.
Name a movie that you knew would be terrible just from reading the title. +Mega Shark Versus the Giant Octopus. Really?
What holiday do you most look forward to? +Thanksgiving! I love the family being together.. and the fact that I can eat anything that day & not feel guilty about it. It’s a day of THANKS… I thank God for all the food I’m eating ;)
How is the relationship between you and your parents? +It’s amazing. It’s better than it’s ever been. I can talk to them. They can talk to me. Yes.. they’re parents. And yes, sometimes I’m the hardheaded daughter… But regardless of all that - we are good!
You’ve got the TV on, but you’re not really watching. What channel is the TV on? +The cooking channel :)
Name a song that never fails to make you happy. +Still Fly by Big Tymers. Cracks me up every time!
You know at least one person named Michael. Tell me about him. +Hah. Michael is my only brother. And as much as he drives me crazy sometimes … I love & adore the man! He’s a big teddy bear - full of love & ready to spread it to anyone he meets. Haha.
If you could pick anywhere to live the rest of your life, where would it be? +The house I’m in now. Seattle, WA. We’ve got a huge yard in the middle of the city - but we’re tucked away so it feels like we’re in the country. You can’t find that anymore.
Can money buy happiness? +Only for so long….
Where was your favorite place to go when you were a little kid? +The Seattle Children’s Museum. My dad would take me there at least once a week. Sometimes twice! I LOVED it!
Have you ever spent a night in the hospital? +Yep, when my sister Gloria was in labor with my nephew Amare!
Do you enjoy being with only one or two friends, or with a large group of people? +Honestly… I like a small group of friends. It’s not overwhelming.. and I don’t feel like I have to talk to every single person. I mean.. even if I am in a huge group.. I still don’t feel that way but in a small group, that pressure isn’t even there. haha.
Do you like the type of music your parents listen to? Do your parents like the type of music you listen to? +My parents music taste is a mixture of a lot of things. So I like it. They listen to a lot of gospel music - I get down with the gospel! :) And they like my music too…
Have you ever been bullied? Have you ever bullied anyone else? +People were intimidated by me. ;) Jk jk. I honestly went to a school where bullying wasn’t even a thing. I know - it sounds crazy. But there weren’t any problems with bullying. And yes - I went to a public school. It’s possibly people! And no.. I’m not a bully!
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? +Cupcakes. *Sigh.
If your partner wanted to wait until marriage before having sex, would you stay in that relationship? +”We’re on the same page my friend!”
Do you believe in a god? +Yes. I believe in a loving God!
Name a TV series you didn’t enjoy until after it ended. +American Idol. Haha. I seriously never watch the whole thing.. but once it ends - I’m all about THE American Idol. =/
If you could give up your car and never have to drive again, would you? +Nope. Not at all. I love my car & I love having a vehicle to get around in.
If you go back to one point in time to give advice to yourself, when would you go and what would you say? +I’d go back to my 9th grade year.. and tell myself, “The grass is NOT greener on the other side.” There is a lot behind that one sentence for me.. let’s talk about it sometime.
What’s your “quirkiest” habit? +I pinch my neck when I’m nervous.. haha. I know. It’s weird.
What is “normal?” Are you normal? +I don’t know what normal is.. haha. Sooo.. I’m probably not normal.
Is it possible for guys and girls to be just friends? +Yes. Why not? But once you start being “friends with benefits” - it. will. not. work. Just sayin.
When you were young, what would you dream you would be when you grew up? +I wanted to be a world famous fashion designer.
What gets you out of bed in the morning? +Breakfast. Haha. I love breakfast.. it’s my favorite meal of the day!
What’s the best route to your heart? +Buy me a coffee. Bring me a muffin from PCC. And then write me a handwritten letter. You’ve got my heart after those three things.
