six months and counting.

Six months ago today, I felt exactly like I feel today.

Maybe not exactly, but definitely a lot of the same


Six months ago today, Bart asked me to be his

girlfriend, and I have received the biggest blessings

ever since =).

When I first met Bart, I knew he was a wonderful person,

but I never imagined I would get the opportunity to get

to know him and realize that he, in fact, would grow to

love me just as much as i loved him. Of course, I wasn't

in love with him from the moment we met... but it was

awfully close! I noticed he was such a special person.. so

different than any other guy I'd been around. I knew he

was the type of guy I wanted to date, and someday marry.

So, six months ago today, and after long hours of thought

and prayers, my wish came true. I truly believed it was

a miracle, and I still do. I think love is a miracle, marriage

is a miracle! I think it's so amazing that God can put two

totally different people together, and they fit perfectly!

His plan is so mind-blowing and it just makes me so happy

to think about how God has a plan for everything, and He knows

who you are going to marry, from the moment you are born! That

is so miraculous! I get so excited thinking about what God might have

planned for my future, and hopefully,our future.


Thank you so much for all you do! You are so encouraging, and you

make me so happy! You are the biggest blessing in my life, and I hope

you realize that! I thank God that you are in my life every day! I pray

that you will continue growing in Christ and letting Him lead you. Also,

I hope one day I am as much of a blessing to you as you are to me! <3

I love you very much!!

Opportunities for ministering

I recently encountered a few opportunities to share God's love
in my community and encourage others. If you or someone
you know is interested in helping out, please contact me! =)

Mary's house is a shelter for abused and battered women and
their children. It runs mainly off of volunteers and donations. The
basic procedures in the house allow women to start a new life by
giving them a chance to reconstruct their lifestyles, while learning
more about what wonderful things Christ has done for them, and
how He can help them.

Every Tuesday evening, the ladies/mothers have a Bible study time
from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm. During this time it is beneficial if the children
can be taught a Bible lesson of their own. Women and older girls who
are willing to help out on Tuesdays to teach the children are much
appreciated. The children are always so sweet and loving; teaching
the kids is always a joy. Working with small children is a blessing,
and I'm sure it will encourage you and brighten your day.

Thanks so much for taking the time, your help is much appreciated.

the most amazing love

The most amazing love of all, God's love!
The perfect passage to start off this blog:
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ( new life)
Love does not give up.
Love is kind.
Love is not jealous.
Love does no put itself up as being important.
Love has no pride.
Love does not not do the wrong thing.
Love never thinks of itself.
Love does not get angry.
Loves does not remember the suffering that
comes from being hurt by someone.
Love is not happy with sin.
Love is happy with the truth.
Love takes everything that comes without giving up.
Love believes all things, Love hopes for all things, Love keep on in
all things. Love never comes to an end.
