d'attente {waiting}.

{waiting} is a part of life. 

we wait for our sixteenth birthday so that we can drive. 
we wait until we're 18 so we can be considered adults. 
we wait to graduate college and find a job.
we wait to get married. 
to have children. 
we wait for money to pay off our houses and cars. 
sometimes we just wait for {life}. 
life is full of {waiting}. 

learning to be patient in our waiting and sometimes not getting a clear result is the hard part. 
we must put our full trust in God for all of the things we wait for. trying to rush into things without waiting on Him is useless. {His} timing is perfect, and your waiting patiently on Him will pay off. 

"I waited patiently for the LORD; He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from 
the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, 
making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. 
Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD." Psalm 40:1-3

{psalm 100:5}
"for the Lord is good; His love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations."

there is this thing, this unfathomable thing. it's called love.  
it is so powerful.
we, as humans, can't grasp the richness and fullness of it.
true love is something that we, though unworthy, get to experience.
Christ pours His everlasting, unending, love into us. it is overwhelming.
He shows His love to us in different ways. one of which is people.
beautiful people.
sons and daughters of promise, of light.
ambassadors of Christ.
His love bearing vessels.
it is such an amazing thing to experience, when there is a bond between people that can't be broken, because the love of Christ holds it together.
two spirits as one in Him.
the love that He pours into us so that we can pour it into others.
unbreakable, perfect love.
He is love, and he pours Himself into us.
how amazing is that?
that's pretty amazing. 

{His love is amazing.}
and is the only, true love.

if you haven't ever failed at something in life, you haven't lived.

we were reminded of this in class this morning. every person has a special {significance} in this world no matter what they may have failed at. don't compare yourself and your failures to anyone else/'s. you were molded to {uniquely} fill the life God has given to you. you are {you} for a reason. :) don't forget it!

well, this picture is quite random, but i love it. someone i babysit. a very {precious} little girl.

elc {God's timing and plan}

just got home from spending 5 weeks in a place that i didn't want to leave. rather, with people that i love and miss. leaving those people was so hard. over the 5 weeks that we worked together, we grew in the Spirit with one another, and the bonds that were made in between us were strong. God brought us together like a family, united by His Love. we became as close as brothers and sisters. 

even though i didn't want to leave them, i knew in my heart that God had put us together for that amount of time for a reason, and that His timing is perfect. i am extremely thankful for the impact that was left on my life by them. and i hope, that someday i will see them again. i love them. 

here are a few photos {out of many} that i snapped while at camp. enjoy. :)

"the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
