Be Passionate!

Ok, in the catholic tradition today marks the beginning of lent (the forty days leading up to Easter) and usually people give up things like sweets for lent, or types of food, and it's kind of like new years resolutions sometimes it doesn't work out. You're supposed to give up or take up something that will improve you.
Recently God has really been putting passion for him on my heart. So for lent this year I’m going to make it an awesome me and God time. I'm telling you all this in case you'd like to do something between now and Easter too. Making more time for you and God, doing crazy God things, I’m really excited!!
WooHoo God!!!! This is going to be so cool, relationship building with the coolest guy ever! Yay!

3 things about my day? got 'um

Well, lets see. What have I got for you all today. I guess just thoughts on blogs. Would we write differently on here if we knew exactly who was watching? Like if I knew for certain that someone in my family would find this one day would I change what I am typing now (the answer is yes, because originally I was typing something else haha)? Just a thought, because sometimes I sit down to type something to post online, and it is just me and my computer, and I go into journaling mode, and have to remember people will read this. and it should be aimed at them.

I feel random so I am going to allow a topic switch, if this bothers you it will probably happen again in this post and in the course of this blog, so be prepared.
Today I am Thankful for:
+planes (all types, paper, full scale people holding fly in the air type, the kind in math, etc.)
+the ability to rock back and forth and side to side

I just flipped open my bible and this is the verse I found, I pray it helps somebody out there, or you needed to hear it.
Isaiah 30:1 "woe to obstinate children," declares the Lord, "to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance but not by my spirit, heaping on sin upon sin;
Usually when I am looking up random verses it is because I want to share one with someone. and I always avoid the negative verses. that is what I was thinking about as I typed that up. Do we avoid the side of God that says "No" and admonishes us? I think most definitely we do. Just thoughts, I hope God grows them in your head and in mine, and we can make some sense out of then, but for now I'm off to bed, or rather the idea of getting ready for bed.
:) goodnight!

Hey! I just did my planned bible reading for today (going through Hebrews right now) and the first bit totally matched thoughts on Isiah above! So if you're interested, Hebrews 12:1-14! Anyways, really going to bed now. :)

whoops, forgot to title this one...

Well, I've looked at a lot of blogs today, and it just amazed me. I'm not sure I've ever realized how many people are out there. There are so many of us! And there are people in other countries on other continents who listen to the same music and love the same God I do. Yet there are way more who are different. And all of us are so small in comparison with the world we are in. It is such a conflict. I get so wrapped up in my own little corner of the world and so bogged down with the tiny tiny things that seem so big. I'm in a state of amazed confusion, I don't know what the best attitude is. God is big and I limit him for my own comfort since I am small, and I do the same to the world, even though in comparison with him it is minuscule!
To explain my perspective, I'm visiting my sister this weekend I'm in another state. I miss my friends back home, but it is interesting finding life goes on with out them, as so often i try to make them my world.
God is so AMAZING! I can't understand, but that is ok. I just need to trust.

I just visited the PostSecret Blog and most of them made me sad. A couple were happy, but most of our secrets are negative I suppose. Maybe one day I'll make one of those cards. Probably not, I'd make a happy one if I did, but I don't really like those books and such. Well, I need to go to bed. I hope somebody reads this sometime, otherwise I'm talking to myself! haha :)

Post Numero One

Hey! I wanted a place to share stuff with people so first off you should check out it is pretty cool.

Anyways, I'm not sure how often I'll up date but I'll try to keep it frequent. :)
