One crazy summer!


Tomorrow I leave for what was supposed to be my first overseas mission trip.  It’s crazy the things God does in our lives when we let Him.  My house is clean, the laundry is done, the dishwasher is running and with the exception of my hair dryer, I am packed.  I sure hope I didn’t forget anything. At this point it just might be too late if I did.

I’m excited!  And nervous! (Am I the only one that when they have to get up early, they don't sleep well because they are afraid they will over sleep?!?)

I’ve been doing some crazy reflection, because I always do that!  HA!

I was thinking about how busy my life is and how great that is because there is always always something to look forward to!  Soon after I get back, it’s off to a leader’s retreat!  And soon off to being a leader again on Sunday nights!

Over the summer I have found love in some incredible places.  Places and people I probably never would have thought…  but God knew.

Friends who have come along side me and loved me and prayed for me helped me work through a whole bunch of crap, people who helped me fix my porch steps, falling back in love with Youth Ministry!  It sure has been one crazy summer!

A funny thing I do is that whenever I go away, I plan my funeral.  People get weird texts that say “hey I know this is weird… but just in case I die… will you ____?”  It’s true.

This time was no different, the most different thing was that everyone said yes, but then followed it up with “don’t die” LOL.  I’m not afraid to die, I am afraid for those left behind. 

Know this, that should anything happen to me, I know, hit them before they hit me, know my surroundings, and RUN!  And also know that should anything happen to me, I wouldn’t change a thing.  To God be the GLORY!

Is 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”


All this pain
I wonder if I’ll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change at all
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found
Could a garden come up from this ground at all

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make me new, You are making me new
You make me new, You are making me new

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us
