Does anyone else out there marvel regularly at the wonder of our God? The sunset He paints in the sky or the very unique way He has created all of us? Each of our sweet children? I sure do... and am constantly reminded by something new and fresh that takes my breathe away everyday, yet again.

I am a part of a group of ladies at my church that is diving into a
new book that celebrates that (at least so far) called Crazy Love : Overwhelmed by a Relentless God by Francis Chan. It is wildly good and I am just having to pace myself in reading it all too fast. With each statement that is said, and every point that he is making I am finding myself just concurring (outl oud...I talk to myself a lot....it's a habit I have had since I was little)) with him over and over. "Yes!", "Exactly!", "Totally!" This is what I keep catching myself saying! It's kind of fun to come across a person or author or anything that you feel like in not so many words, or maybe just different ones, that you are completely on the same page with them. Well this book, and this guy, are totally like that for me! It really is a powerful read thus far. I will keep you posted as I go.

I've been so small in my thinking of God. I mean I do know that God had given me the gift of faith, but life has taken blows at that faith. At Him too. But at the same time I feel Him as bigger then ever before in my life. He is so big and mighty and at work in so many ways, it is IMPOSSIBLE to put it into words. we can spend our entire lives studying Him, loving Him, and seeking Him, and only barely scratch the surface.

Anyone that reads my thoughts knows that you can't go far into knowing me without music becoming an intracle part of explaining where I am or who I am. It is my voice when i am without speech. (That doesn't happen often, but when it does I can turn right to it!) This is a song I discovered way into it's existence. what can i say....I am a bit slow. It is awesome in it's presence, position, and MAGNIFICATION of the love of my life. My God. Take some time to worship the ONLY One worthy! All I want to do is dance when I hear it!


Jesus....You are MAGNIFICENT!

Wow! So God!!! I just finished reading that exact book last night!!! I am so excited about it. I can't stop talking about it. I have so much to think about and work on but mostly I'm so excited to see how God is working in my life and how much He loves me and how much I am growing in love with HIM! I'm so geeked out that you are reading the same book.
