I've been staring at the sky tonight. Marvelling and passing time. Wondering what to do with daylight Until I can make you mine You are the one I want, you are the one I want. I've been thinking of changing my mind. It never stays the same for long, But of all the things I know for sure, You're the only certain one, You are the one I want, you are the one I want. I've been counting up all my wrongs One sorry for each star, See I'd apologise my way to you If the heavens stretched that farYou are the one I want, you are the one I want [Chorus]I won't find what I am looking for If I only "see" by keeping score, 'Cos I know now you are so much more than arithmetic, 'Cos if I add, if I subtract, If I give it all, try to take some back, I've forgotten the freedom that comes from the fact, That you are the sum. So you are the oneI want. When the years are showing on my face, And my strongest days are gone. When my heart and flesh depart this place, From a life that sung your song, You'll still be the one I want, You'll still be the one I want,You'll still be the one I want,You'll still be the one I want. -Brooke Fraser

As though your heart already belongs to somebody...

A couple of years ago, one of my favorite people in the world-Mark Allen, gave me and Allison the book: "Master, Mission, Mate" by Pastor Ken Graves. I've since read the book, about a Gazillion times, and love it more, everytime I do so. It's a great book to read if you're a Christian single, and sometimes forget WHO you're #1 priority should be. Ken Graves, also does a great job of reminding us how to keep your heart in check, and how to refrain from getting emotionally attached to someone. He includes 4 points that are CRUCIAL to staying level-headed.

Living as though your heart, already belongs to somebody. -Ken Graves
(1)Brother/Sister-Everyone is your sibling until God says something different.

(2)Refrain from any and all romantic expressions of affection: keep your emotions in check. (You ARE promised to someone) No flirting! They ARE your sibling.
(3)Pray for God's will for everyone you meet. You can't go wrong in doing this. You don't want it any other way! You want God's perfect will to be lived out in your life, as well as the life of your future mate, and in the lives of your brothers and sisters. "Praying God's will, reminds you not to seek your own."
(4)Be busy about your Father's business. There's KINGDOM work to be done! Keep yourself occupied with whatever work God would have you do, and WAIT for HIM to bring your mate to you.

I love you guys. <3

I am now 23.

See the 2? and then the 3?

That's almost a quarter of a century. That's RAD. Thank you Jesus for allowing me to live this long, and be blessed by the people I have been! SO SO Blessed. I can't wait to see, what God is going to do next. The only thing I ever worry about is moving away from my family. I know the Lord will handle my fears when it comes time to be anxious, but it's scary to think about. I don't know what I'll do when I cant wake up, and talk to my mom about life every morning, or sit and watch sport zone with my dad every day (well, mainly basketball season). God will take care of those emotions. AH LIFE! I cannot wait to see whats next!!!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.
Philippians 4:6-8
