"I'm just a little bit caught in the middle, life is a rhyme and love is a riddle"

It's the summer before my Senior year in highschool. Wow. What happened to learning how to ride a bike? Or 4th grade?
I'm so excited to see what God will do next year, but I'm a little anxious too. I think that's okay for now, though. I really miss Malawi, I'd like to go back for a year after school, we'll see if I can wait that long ;)

I was drawn to these verses during Worship on Sunday. I'm not exactly sure why but after reading over them several times, I realized that Christ coming to die, for worthless, undeserving, sinners is the best Father's Day Present ever! Our earthly Father's are true blessings, don't get me wrong there, but all earthly things and people aside, we have eternal life. I was really moved by that. I hope these verses are encouraging to you as well.

 "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and  we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3More than that, we  rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
 6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will *scarcely die for a righteous person*—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."- Romans 5:1-8

Mom has been out of town helping with her Dad, who is recovering from heart surgery, continued prayers for all helping would be a blessing. The house hasn't burned down--yet. ;) Everything has been going great, Dad runs a tight ship :) 

Besides smashing my hand between grocery carts and a door tonight, life, summer and everything in between has been going swell.

Welcome to my blog!
