you know that feeling when you open your door in the morning to go outside and it’s warm? and you say, “oh. I don’t even need a jacket today, this is lovely.” and then you can take off your jacket and walk outside and you can feel the SUN on your body? and it’s actually WARM? and then the next day, oh my, you may have just chosen to put some shorts on? and soon enough you’re wearing sunglasses, tank top, shorts, and oh can you image, FLIP-FLOPS?! and you can smell the air, and it’s like florida, and birds, and sun, and blue sky all around your nose? wow. i LONG for that feeling right now. kb.
i just got home from dropping my portfolio off at Sheridan College, for the BAA Photography program. It felt like a huge sigh of relief, and then I caught my breathe again when I thought about having to still hear back about whether or not I will actually be accepted. I’m leaving it up to God now.
When I got to the Information Session at 10am this morning and I was surrounded by other students who seemed to be passionate about taking photos, and when the professor started speaking at the front of the room I felt as though that was exactly where I was meant to be. Just hearing him talk about all the equipment I will be able to have at my fingertips next year (if this is God’s plan!), made my heart race. Also, it turns out that although in the past they have only offered a 2-year diploma program in Photography at Sheridan, starting September 2011 it will be a 4-year Degree program. Meaning students will be learning so much more information, which will better prepare one for a career in Photography of some kind! Thank you Jesus!
I find out mid-March the results of whether I got in or not, so please keep praying until then! Thanks all! kb.
home again home again from three wonderfully lovely days with my bffz at my friends chalet! So much fun was had, as usual with the four of us. We spent most of the time sitting in the chalet talking all day long, as the sun streamed in through the windows all around us in her cute little cottage :) what I love most about these girls and I, is that we can talk for hours and days on end and never run out of things to say to each other. and when we aren’t talking, we are so completely comfortable with the beautiful silence surrounding us … which is not very often.
Last night I had another amazing chat with two friends of mine. I seem to have these very often these days .. what a blessing! Anyways, we were talking a lot about our future(s) and how scary it can be sometimes to wonder where we will be in 5, 10, 15 years time. I started thinking to myself throughout this time how worried I am that I’m planning on transferring next year, and beginning over. Not even knowing right now whether I will get accepted to the only school I want to go to, is the most frightening thing. But at the same time, the most beautiful thing.
I have NO idea where I’m going to be next year. In 5 years. In 10 years. But the beauty of that, is that God does. And He has such an awesome plan that I don’t even have to begin to worry. I just have to continuously live a life of fire and glory to Him, and let Him take the reigns.
People. Don’t worry about your lives. Give it up to God. Surrender it to Him. And He will lead you places you didn’t even think existed. Down paths we probably haven’t stepped foot into yet. Come join me on this journey of life - living fully for Him, so that we may be His hands and feet. kb.
yesterday was a very good day. First of all, on Saturday night, an amazingly awesome woman came to visit my friends and I at school, and stayed til Sunday night. SO much fun was had, and it was really great to be able to catch up with her again:)
As we were having dinner last night, (three of us single ladies!) we got talking about relationships. It is always so so cool to hear God speak through people around you. I had mentioned that I know God has someone in mind for me, but that the relationship I’m waiting for - wherever this guy may be, whether I’ve met him or not - does not seem to be something that will happen anytime soon. And I am finally 100% okay with that.
After my friends left, and my roommate/one of my best friends, got home, we started chatting, and the topic was about certain relationships going on around us. As I was sitting there talking about this all of a sudden I heard Him. It wasn’t a clear, audible voice. But I heard my Father say to me, that although I am single, there IS someone coming someday, and He is preparing that man for me as I sat on my bed. This huge wave of joy, and peace washed over me instantly and I just felt so incredibly loved. More love than I think I have ever felt instilled in my bones and my heart.
Today is Valentines Day. I’ve never had any really extreme feelings towards the day - it’s normally just another day, but especially filled with love and hearts. However, today I know I am in a relationship that is electrified by soo much love - shared with the Creator of this Universe!!
I hope that all you single ladies who are reading this, have either found this love, or are inspired to find it on such a day as this :) kb.
His beauty is so evident all around me. it is days like today when I think of the many blessings He has lavished upon me that I just sit here in worship and let His love poor over me. Thank you Father!
Happy Birthday to a beautiful friend who turns 20 today! kb.
i want to make a kite made out of newspapers. and then attach myself to it. and then fly away so that i don’t have to think about school. or work. or getting a job. and then life is just fun. cause i’m in the sky and such. …if only.
