Icicles...YUMMMMMMM?

is for



Ireland


where I will someday go!



Isaiah


where there are so many things that speak to me:
"Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days. The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses. Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy...There the Lord will display his glory, the splendor of our God...With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming ...He is coming to save you.”



Ikea


where I am going in June..YESSSSS!!!!



Icicles


which remind me of my childhood...when we'd break them off and carry them around like mammoth, trophy popsicles!!


Hope...





is for




Hope

which I cling to that God will one day give us the desires of our hearts




Hedgehog



Which I had at one point in my life. His name was Pumbaa, I loved him, he loved me,
we were allergic to each other! The rest is history!!



Hook

one of the coolest movies of all time!

Hands


my grandma's hands once were strong, but now are frail
They once raised a boy who became a man who became the greatest dad ever.
Her hands would lift me up into her arms as we rocked together in her chair and
she would sing, "Toora Loora"
as I would hold her hands and trace the wrinkles and lines in her beautiful, worn hands.
Her hands spoke of a lifetime of stories, some hard, some wonderful. Her hands were that of a mother who loved her children. I want my hands to tell a story of the life that I've lived.
I want my hands to look like hers.

Garage Sales...YESSS!!!!


is for

Giraffe
my all time favorite animal. They look like I feel sometimes...awkward, out of place, different. I kind of identify with that!
3 random Giraffe facts:
-like fingerprints, each giraffe's coat is completely unique
-the giraffe has a relative, the okapi, which is a very solitary animal, once thought a mythical creature because of the rare & very few sightings.
-the first thing a baby giraffe does when it is born is drop 6 or more feet to the ground.
Grow
which I want to do.
In character, attitude, response, lifestyle, & example.
I want to be one who finds the lesson in every situation, tosses out the garbage and is like,
"Wow, I'm so glad I went through that, because now I can change _____about myself"

Gustav Klimt
the artist of my favorite painting

"First Kiss"

Guitar
this is the one I got for Christmas from Mark; it sounds like butter! I love it! Maybe its all psychological, by I promise that when you have a better instrument, you write better songs!!

Garage Sales
I can't wait to bring home a mondo-load of useless junk..HA HA!

Guacamole

Family and Friends


is for
Falling
which Mark, Christy & I could watch ALL day!!

Friendship
I'm so grateful for the friends God has given me
over my lifetime. Some for seasons, some for the long haul!
There are old friends and new friends,
Fun Friends & Cry-with Friends,
Friends I know will speak truth to me no matter what the cost
And friends who will encourage me when I am down!
This is what life is for-to be Jesus' hands and feet to each other! And I'm so grateful God chose
who He did to be His hands and feet to me!!

Faithfulness
Mark & I talk often about our favorite characteristics of God. Mark will ask me,
"Whats your favorite thing about God right now?"
And for a long time running its been,
"That He is faithful to me when I am not faithful."
God has ministered that to me over and over! I am who I am today because of the
never failing Faithfulness of God! I am changed because He was faithful to not leave me the way I was! What an incredible God He is!
Family
I am blessed with a large family. I have a Mom & Dad, a Mom & Dad-in-law,
a sister, 2 brother in laws,
7 step siblings-in-law,
17 Aunts & Uncles, 26 cousins & the list goes on!
I love my family!

Fun
I love to have fun! I love to laugh till I pee & go crazy with my crazy friends!
There is nothing more therapeutic than laughing! I swear by it!
Mark will say if he's having a downer day, I need to go to so and so's house so we
can laugh! Fun does something inside you that changes even the darkest hours into
times of joy!!

Feet
I love em!!

Fraggle Rock
