This is part of a great song that I stumbled upon a couple days ago by LIGHTS.  I just wanted to post some of it and have people think about it.  God's love blows my mind, I hope it blows your mind to. :) 

The night is deafening
when the silence is listening
and I'm down on my knees 
and I know that something is missing 
because the back of my mind is holding things I'm relying in 
but I choose to ignore it because I'm always denying them 

I'm a bit of a manic when it's not as I plan it 
'cause I start losing my head then I get up in a panic
Remember, when we were kids and always knew when to quit it 
Are we denying a crisis or are we scared of admitting it?

I don't want to know

I just wanna run to you
and break off the chains
and throw them away
I just wanna be so much
and shake off the dust 
that turn me to rust
Sooner than later, I'll need a saviour
I need a saviour

Can't Take it In

 This is one of my favorite songs right now. 

Can't close my eyes
They're wide awake
Every hair on my body
has got a thing for this place
Oh empty my heart
I've got to make room for this feeling
so much bigger than me

It couldn't be any more beautiful - I can't take it in.

Weightless in love...unravelling
For all that's to come
and all that's ever been
We're back to the board
with every shade under the sun
Let's make it a good one

It couldn't be any more beautiful  I can't take it in 

It couldn't be any more beautiful  I can't take it in.

All that I wanted. All that I ever needed.
All that I wonder. So beautiful.

Happy Valentines Day.

Happy Valentines day to everyone! Sorry its late, but I have been crazy busy, (like normal huh?)  Monday I went to a girl's study, which was about, guess what, Love. No kidding.  :) It was a great talk and I got to meet a handful of beautiful Catholic girls, who really blessed me.  Then Tuesday I had youth group. Now I'm in the middle of getting ready to help out at a Valentines dace.  Go me!
You would think a girl who is a missionary would be really outgoing right? Not me. I hate to talk to people I don't know, calling people on the phone terrifies me, but here I go, off to be a waitress for the night.  That's something I have to work on...anyhow I hope everyone has a blessed day.

New Name

I changed the name of my blog.  For a few reasons:
1. I didn't really like, "A Missionary Journal".  It just didn't sound like I wanted it to be.
2. It didn't sound like me. The new title does.
3. I am changing, my life is changing.  :)

I love whimsical things. <3 

The World? Or God?

Peace. Don't we all want it? Only God can give it.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

~St. Francis

The Flower

Its a small flower.  And its all I have.  Its me.  I give it to the world and it tears my flower to pieces. And I have to start all over again.  I give my flower to people and they do the same. I give my flower to everyone and everything I think of, till I'm so broken. I hurt.  And I fall to my knees.  Petals all around me, faded.  And then someone starts to pick up the petals and put them back into a flower.  A kind hand takes mine, and helps me up.  Eyes so kind, so beautiful.  I can't look away.  He gives me back the flower.
"Take it. It's all I have."  I say. 

Jesus take all I am.
