"Trumpeted from the summit of Calvary is the truth that we will never be left alone nor unaided, even if sometimes we may feel that we are..."

"...May we stand by Jesus Christ “at all times and in all things, and in all places that [we] may be in, even until death,” for surely that is how He stood by us when it was unto death and when He had to stand entirely and utterly alone. "

so cool...

I'm not old enough to play baseball or football. I'm not eight yet. My mom told me when you start baseball, you aren't going to be able to run that fast because you had an operation. I told Mom I wouldn't need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I'll just hit them out of the park. Then I'll be able to walk.

Guys, I am successfully 
On a fella that, lets be honest, am I ever going to lay eyes on again? He came in to work. And 
ahhhh, fluttering heart, flushing cheeks, weak knees.
But I didn't get to flirt with him! 
STUPID kid in front of him had to make a payment. Even though Jessica tried to take a long time, she was finished before I was finished, and so... goodbye my almost lover.

Additionally, feast on the BIEBS!!!!! + Rascal Flatts

happy day of love!

Okay, guys, I have been the epitome of single on valentine's day today. i'm talking grouchy, cynical, etc etc.
But I just have no reason to be that way. I AM SO LUCKY AND BLESSED!
i have

  • incredible friends 
  • incredible roommates
  • incredible classes
  • incredible opportunities
  • and an INCREDIBLE family
So, happy valentine's day! LOVE TO EVERYONE!

Just a few of my favorite LOVE quotes. In honor of February 14

"Would that I could love the best of men as tenderly as God loves the worst..."

"Twas not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart,
Twas not my lips you kissed, but my soul."
-Judy Garland

"From their eyelids as they glanced dripped love."

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I met in the street, a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat was threadbare - there were holes at his elbows; the water passed through his shoes and the stars through his soul"
-Victor Hugo
 (as you might have guessed, this is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite quotes. ever.)

The state of things in Egypt right now is less than great...

I'm just going to say, I hope we all try and stay educated, involved, and interested in what's going on in other parts of the world.

And if you're a praying person keep the people who are in Egypt in your prayers.
