Very exciting . . .and we're pushing closer to the 200 mark. Did someone say giveaway?

I am at a point in life when Jesus feels especially close; I'm embarking on my 21st year, and there is a new confidence in the way I see the world that is truly thrilling. My head is held a little higher, and recent trials have only strengthened my Walk. It's been a roller-coaster of lessons that compared to the past were easier to handle; I will never back down. People may mock, they may criticize and misunderstand - but I am who I am in Christ. My way isn't the only way - it probably isn't even the right way, but it's the way in which HE is guiding me. The turmoil of my soul is cleansed, for He is my Victory, my Life, my Joy, my All. I will not fear what man will do unto me!! It's all very inspiring. . . good things are coming. *Amazing* things are here. ♥
"Ill take character over reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."
On to more lighthearted things. My mind is swarming with all the business, all the simple beauty of LIFE. And I've officially decided that fall is my favorite season. I mean, when else can I wear my favorite poncho? Sitting with Anna in Coolbeans is rejuvenating - ( the most heart-stopping little coffee shop on the planet. It's so whimsical and perfect. . .a girls haunt that is haunted by two certain sisters at least once a week or more.) I don't know if I've mentioned lately, but! we were hired as part-time nannies again. It seriously is a dream-job. . .who could resist two scrumptious little 15 month olds, boy and girl, with names like Aaron and Kendall? I mean, seriously love the name Kendall. It's so Celtic and bookish. Plus she is adorable, chubby, and FUN. Aaron is a little snuggle bug. . .I think I need to bring a camera next work day.
|speaking of happiness. . .i found this incredible little cap at a consignment shop. ok, so i love caps--hats of all kinds. . .bu t this one is from SCOTLAND. Its actually *British* really and truly. how could i pass it up?|
I'm sitting here trying to place the fullness of my heart. It is bounded in every direction - singing, crying, dancing, planning, scheming, DREAMING. Because Neverland is real. Bcause like my sister wrote today on facebook: "but we go to to Neverland all the time--anywhere we travel in dreams and imaginations IS Neverland. That's the awesome part. Neverland IS every kid's (or in our case, grown up kid's ;) ) imagination. And basically, people who don't believe in it are simply not kindred spirits. . ."
Think happy thoughts.
