early rising

Most seniors were sleeping in this morning. Not me... I woke up at 5:00 and packed my knapsack. I headed over to Laurel's house where we piled in Casey's car and drove to the mountain. Laurel, Casey, Kevin, Sarah, Pierre (who are Casey's beautiful shelties) and I squished in the sour milk smelling car. Good thing it was a short drive! From there we started our journey. It was dark and on the way up the sun started to say hello. It was a beautiful sight. The city lights twinkling and the cool air blowing past our faces. We made it to the top, set out the blankets, whipped out the bagels and had some breakfast. We watched the rest of the sunrise and had fun with the doggies. The whole experience made for a good workout, nice bonding time and the peacefulness of a sweet spring morning. Laurel and I immediately jumped in the hot tub when we got back from the hike. It felt so nice to warm my frozen hands. Meryn accompanied us and kept us giggling the whole time. She is such a joy to be around!

Next came school... 25 minute classes = the most pointless thing ever. I had a guitar lesson and had fun attempting to be somewhat decent at the instrument. I thoroughly enjoy listening to Gregg sing the songs though! I came home and decided to sit outside and practice a little more. I hope the neighbors didn't have to hear me, haha. It was so warm and glorious that I decided to wash and clean out my car. I cranked a "Phil Wickham" station on Pandora and sat on the driveway eating an apple before I started that process. My mom and I went for a walk. It's so strange not having Daisy with us. After dinner I made some sugar cookies with green sprinkles for St. Patrick's Day tomorrow. I didn't really have any homework which is a good thing cause I don't think I would have done it if I did have any.

If anyone is reading this... please pray for my sister. She called us tonight and said that she broke her elbow. She has worked harder than I've ever seen for Crew and now it's over. The season was two weeks away from starting. We are devastated for her and she just really needs prayer to stay positive. I can't help but have tears in my eyes typing this. I was so proud of her for working so hard. I know God has a reason... it just seems impossible to see at a time like this.

Who is wise? Let them realize these things. Who is discerning? Let them understand. The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them. Hosea 14:9 No matter what God throws at us we have to deal with it. Help us to realize that your ways Lord, are right. You turn the breakdowns in our lives to beauty. We just have to turn our hearts to you so we can hear it, see it and feel it.

Who knew Phil Wickham had a brother? Yes, his name is Evan. This video is down right precious and adorable, not to mention inspiring.

Phil is by far one of my favorite singers.
and I love that Evan has just about the same sound to his voice as his brother does.
Two attractive men with beautiful voices they use to worship their Creator..
Love them.
