As young women of the most high God, we are designed to be endlessly pursued. Any righteous gentleman, then, should be compelled to treat his lady to an enriching relationship—one that extends from physical attraction into the depths of the Spirit, engaging and rejoicing in the wholesomeness Christ offers him in pursuit of her.
“I’m a little nervous, that’s okay. It’s been a long time since I’ve prayed, but I know that His love always stays the same. Pick up your head, start to dance, don’t let these feelings get you down. It’s so much easier to smile than it is to frown. So many problems we have today, but we can take them all away. Just think of all the good things He’s done. No worries anymore, there’s no reason to cry, my Father, my Savior, is with you tonight. Just put a smile on your face, and let your problems fall away.”—My fellow choir member and friend Trey Simon’s new single, Pick Up Your Head…everyone should check it out on iTunes!
senior exam half days, june 2 & 3; chinese picnic on the beach with my girls one day, blowout party with all things summer related (slip ‘n slide, BBQ, huge capture the flag game, snow cones, bonfire, etc.) on the other.
last days of school, june 16 & 17; getting a group together to make summer shirts again on the 16th, then a big open-house-style picnic at a park on the 17th!
random events in the process of being planned;
movie night…will be projecting a flick on the side of mi casa. bring your own snacks and blankets/chairs. popcorn & slurpees/snow cones may be provided.
scavenger hunt! still in the first stages of planning, but should be around the rochester hills area (that way nobody is at a true advantage).
“A woman in her glory, a woman of beauty, is a woman who is not striving to become beautiful or worthy or enough. She knows in her quiet center where God dwells that he finds her beautiful, has deemed her worthy, and in him, she is enough.”
God created you for a purpose. You may be trying to figure out just what His plans are right now, but please, relax and let go of the wheel. Stop trying to control your life. He knows where you’re headed, and exactly where He needs you to be. Trust Him, and He will show you the amount of joy and assurance and love He has for you, right where you are. Be patient. Love kindly, and live graciously. Be open handed. Serve with a passion that you’ve never experienced before. Do all of these things, and He will bring the greatest and most immense sense of fulfillment over you.

Remind yourself of the amazing contentment that resides in a relationship with God, fully diving into Him and trusting His every guidance for you. Remember these simple instructions and live by them.
