I'll take 'em all! I love every single place you named. As a matter of fact I'm sighing with an Irish brogue right now. :P I'm all about Austria right now. For years I've wanted to travel there.

Stunning. I love the robes in the photo - what a way to imagine clothing ourselves.

Jesus is speaking something powerful through you and I have a feeling...He is just getting started. I want to be like the men He called and readily respond. Just getting up and going where He goes. Getting my hands dirty --taking Him seriously and "doing the thing".

"Preach it!" yells the newly tattooed Jesus lover! ; ) A few weeks ago I called my Mom up and declared "I'm no longer a Christian!" After she shrieked in desperation and began pleading for my eternal soul ; ) I calmed her down and said, "I'm just a girl who loves Jesus. I'm done with the labels, Mom. I can't take it anymore." And I meant every word. For weeks now I've been calling myself "a girl who loves Jesus" because I see how we tend to take our labels and hide behind them. We take "Christian" and instead of using it to foster love and compassion and mercy and grace we use it to block the world from our "protected" community. We protest with it and we use it to exclude. Breaks my heart. Maybe if we stopped calling ourselves a label, and started cutting to the heart of this faith we might be more apt to do the thing for His glory. Maybe if we weren't so worried about being perceived as "good christian girls" we would be more focused on becoming "like Jesus". And then...maybe we would.

This Scripture has always spoken to me so profoundly. Since I was a little girl. I love the graphic you chose and how you colored the wording. Beautiful.

I almost bought this book today!!! But then for whatever reason I put it down. Now I must go back and read. : ) I just read Mosaic- by Amy Grant and it changed me. Really. I highly recommend it. She writes about faith and life and love and brokenness, and somehow her words made me want to be better. Beautiful.

Beautiful. Sometimes I wonder, too and then I rest in the knowledge that He knew all along. He's got this life under control, in His palm and in His plan.

I would want to visit Israel and travel throughout Europe too! Great minds, girl. Great minds! And then you give my writers at Exemplify an award! Goodness, gracious, the love is spilling over and making me smile big time.

I think lately, even though I know that I know, I've needed to hear that the Lord honors obedience...even when it is hard. And when it feels like He isn't responding. There is coming a day when He will look us in the eye and say, "Well done..."

I want to frame this and hang it in my new office. What a beautiful photo to pair this verse with. His love and His mercy. Never. End. Who are we that He is mindful?

Staying in a hotel for the night is one of my most favorite things to do! I like to do it every few months just for fun. I hope you have a lovely, relaxing time. I have a question for next week! :: If money were of no concern, where would you travel, who would you take and what would you want to see? ::

This is something I've so dealt with (and still do!). When I felt the Lord first asking me to leave the traditional workforce and start writing/Exemplify about 5 years ago, I was devastated. Not only because I LOVE work (I know, I have issues!) but also because career is what I've most desired all my life in terms of goals. Giving it up was so hard. So, so hard. Everyone thought I was crazy with a capital C -- to the point where I cried every. single. night. I didn't think I was going to make it through. I told the Lord, "I won't do it. You can't make me. Tomorrow if you don't do such and such, than I'm going to do this and this..." And you know what? I never did. But He did! Sure, he didn't send me back to where I wanted, or send me on the career path I would have chosen. He didn't see it necessary that I get paid regularly or have health benefits. Yet I was never without. I was never without. Because I was always within His plan. I don't know the plans our Jesus has for you -- but I will say this, it seems to me He entrusts you SO much with his children, that He has called you to minister to those who desperately need it right now at the Joy House. Spiritual children. Who one day are going to see Jesus face to face and thank Him for you. And I shall email you more because I need to leave room for other comments!

A blogging growth spurt. They tend to hurt a little, but you always come out a little taller. I see you just had one! I love random and fun, serious and silly. So, I'm all ears. Or rather, eyes. I have a blog. ; ) But you knew that already.
