Starting a new blog to document things I find... I think people are tired of all the things I link to on facebook: new blogspot!

My heart is full.
I was humbled and blessed this week.
My spirit is renewed.

I'm learning to step out and have faith. To be confident in my Father and His direction in my life.
I think I have been struggling with having confidence in myself because I wasn't putting faith in the one who I follow and depend on.

I'm thankful for the people God has placed in my life to encourage me and be reminders of His grace and love.

I can't begin to count the ways God has blessed my life.

I've been feeling challenged by God. He's been asking me to simply trust Him.  I am going to.

I called my mom yesterday on my way to the gym and she answered the phone singing: "Has anyone told you I loved you today"

It made my night.

I love my mom and our conversations. I love hearing that she prays for me. I need so much prayer! Always:)

Having two children has put a strain on my marriage. Leif and I are learning how to work through this. Its difficult and sometimes I just want to give up. That'd be too easy. God's helping us and we're learning so much.

The Christian is in a different position from other people who are trying to be good. They hope, by being good, to please God if there is one; or — if they think there is not — at least they hope to deserve approval from good men. But the Christian thinks any good he does comes from the Christ-life inside him. He does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us; just as the roof of a greenhouse does not attract the sun because it is bright, but becomes bright because the sun shines on it.

Leif and I watched this dvd the other night. I want to watch it again tonight. This song is brilliant. Jim James is brilliant.

Why don't more people appreciate good music?

I'm laying in bed watching this video over and over. It reminds me of Leif, dancing, and rainy nights. I'm reminded of God and His blessings.

I'd like to teach my daughter that being a woman means she deserves to be loved and honored. Respected and adored. She can do whatever she sets her mind to.

I want her to know that God created her for a certain role and whoever she marries was created for a specific role. One of those roles, to cherish her, protect her, and love her the way Christ loves the church.

I'm thankful for Leif who will be able to give her an example of what a godly man looks like. I hope that I'll be a good example of a godly woman for her.
Everyday it becomes more evident why God has moved us here to Monterey.
Everyday I become more okay with living here longer than planned.
God is good

Recently I read through my livejournal. I started it I think back in 2004... I update it now and then but mostly with about 5 words or less. I'm so happy I kept that journal. I got my first diary when I was 8 and continued to write almost everyday until I was in highschool. Then my best friend told me about livejournal. So I started journaling in there. SO HAPPY I DID! Reading back on things that happened, especially in college was wonderful. I remembered so many people who had blessed my life and made a difference. I loved that if I got a special card or message I'd write it in my livejournal.

It was also a lot of fun going back and reading about how things progressed with Leif:) I'm a bit embarrassed by myself but at the same time I love seeing how I changed from year to year. Even month to month.

I wish I was as consistent with journaling as I had been then. Maybe Ill get better?
