Today I feel forgotten.
I don't know why I looked.

yesterday and today I am suffocating.
I need home,
I need people who love Jesus like I do,
I need people who bear LIFE,

I have been in a state of deep awareness of the emptiness around me. Spatially and spiritually. I have grown fond of being in open spaces and having the realization of how small and insignificant I am and that in that insignificance the God of the universe sees me, knows me, and love ME. In these moments I am drenched with peace and hope. I am glad I am not caged in with cement and glass towering over me, but instead and surrounded with vibrant colors of fall and am constantly reminded of how amazing my Jesus is.
and then on the other hand I am so aware of the emptiness there is here spiritually. I can't help but be overwhelmed with sadness over this. I am almost alone. and I feel it every moment I am with those I am around. I reflect on the days I hang out with them, trying my best to find the gold in them, and then I am more saddened because I can't. I pray and seek the Lord as to how I can be a life giver to those around me, but it is so draining to be alone in it (yet, I am so thankful for the hours I have before and after classes to re-fuel). I am still very drawn to the verse in Ezekiel 37 where the question is asked "son of man, can these dry bones live?". I am asking that now, I can't see how a place reeking with death can live again. "O Sovereign LORD, you alone know." He alone knows. He Alone. Knows. I am hard pursuing, steadfastly waiting and asking how much longer until something breaks.
this all makes me think of birds in cages. they are content I am sure in a cage if that is what they have grown up in, but the know little to nothing of what it is to live in FREEDOM.

The System is Down

" I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than theses, because I am going to the Father." John 14:12

Rise up now, rise up
speak aloud, speak

where are the warriors
where are th weepers
now is the time
now is the time

Where are the dancers
where are the singers
now is the time
now is the time

Can these dry bones live?
can these dry bones live
I say live!
I say live!

Rise up now, rise up
Speak aloud, speak

We were all dead with poison darts. (this was the most amazing bean bag ever! it was huge!!!)

Sometimes when I draw I get really tired.

This is the drawing that I may enter in the student art show, my teacher chose it to be put in!
basically we had to scribble all over the page and then use the erasers to make and image.

This is my other layer drawing that I did, it is a skull and backbone.

This past weekend I went to Birmingham to the Film festival, Jazz festival and Greek food festival. The downtown area that we walked around in ( The Farris people and catherine) was completely amazing. I found so many neat shots there, I only put a few up here.

The Greek food festival was amazing!

At the Jazz festival there were some people there dancing and at the end of their dance they asked if anyone wanted to learn it, I eagerly jumped in and Catherine followed. As you may notice, we were the only white people there, it was completely amazing. [Wells fam-] you know the disco line dance that we do at the parties and such? well I learned two new ones that are so amazing! I can't wait to teach you guys!

I bought this sweet shirt thing the other day.

I want to paint this.

And this.

I was wearing some amazing green eye shadow, it was rockin.
