Favorites

Some of my current favorite things:

1. Book in the Bible: Psalms. Always. I think Psalms is one of those books that has something for everyone…

2. Verse: I couldn’t pick just one, so here are a few of my favorites…
Psalms 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalms 116:6-9 “The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. for you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”
Matthew 6:27 “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
Matthew 5:3-5 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”
Acts 20:24 “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.”

3. Song: Shipwreck by Starfield This song really means a lot to me…I can still remember hearing it for the first time in Seattle, sitting at the desk in our room at the Ronald McDonald House and just sobbing. This song made me start listening to Starfield again, and that band is the reason why I went to the Dare 2 Share conference in Seattle a couple of years ago. That conference renewed my faith and strength in the Lord. I don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t gone there and had the experience that I did.

4. One of my favorite places (in town) : The museum at sunset…it’s gorgeous & it’s where I usually go to take pictures…I also go out on those roads to walk at night. It’s breathtaking…

5. Activity: Besides relaxing and enjoying summer, taking pictures of our garden and flowers around town to remind myself that winter does not last forever…
 

6. Rediscovering how much I love to blog and write…will hopefully continue to do it more often!! After I’m done posting this…I have decided to try to write some poetry again. I haven’t written poetry in what feels like forever. I do have story in my mind though…but we’ll see how that goes.
