why we all need you.

Today my big brother came to town just to take me to breakfast! it was just the sweetest thing! ok, so he didn't come just to take me to breakfast, but he did stop by on his way to Birmingham and take me. I woke up at the butt crack of 7:45 and we were off by 8:05. in his words "You fly, I'll buy". We hopped in the car and heading towards Dothan, our conversation carried us to many different places while Icarus Aquanaut played softly in the back. He showed me all they had down on their new CD and proudly showed me his face melting guitar solos. I was amazed. "I know him!!!" That's what I'll say one day. or actually even now! We went to IHOP (the pancake place) for a great meal. we spoke of life, love and other mysteries.
the more time I spend with him I realize that he is very wise. going into breakfast I was a little bit down due to some things going on here at home. but through conversation I was very encouraged. He reminded me again of God's love for me and how He only wants the best for me. He also reminded me to hold on the the hope that I have and continue to seek God and His will. on the drive home he quoted me this "do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit...Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
I was very very encouraged. I will make it!
I am grateful for John.

Oh Lord, You're Beautiful

Oh Lord, You're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
And when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me

Oh Lord, please light the fire
That once burned bright and clear
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with holy fear

I want to take Your word and shine it all around
But help me first just to live it Lord
And when I'm doing fine
Help me to never seek the crown
For my reward is giving praise to You
