Where is your road leading? Down a lane such at this or a hot dusty path?
Do you see the next bend or does it seem to stretch straight on to the horizon?
Are you prepared for whatever comes by on your way?
What is your help? Where is the spring for water? Where does your food come from? When other paths cross yours, will you turn aside? If other travelers meet you, as they follow their paths, will you invite them to travel along side you as a welcome companion? And when the winds come and blow in your face, will you close your eyes and smile or will you squint and complain?
What is your greatest fear along this way?
What do you hope to find at the end of the road? Why are you traveling?
There is an endless song Echoes in my soul I hear the music ring
And though the storms may come I am holding on To the rock I cling
How can I keep from singing Your praise How can I ever say enough How amazing is Your love How can I keep from shouting Your name I know I am loved by the King And it makes my heart want to sing
I will lift my eyes In the darkest night For I know my Savior lives
And I will walk with You Knowing You'll see me through And sing the songs You give
I can sing in the troubled times Sing when I win I can sing when I lose my step And fall down again I can sing 'cause You pick me up Sing 'cause You're there I can sing 'cause You hear me, Lord When I call to You in prayer I can sing with my last breath Sing for I know That I'll sing with the angels And the saints around the throne
Where are you going? tomorrow? next month? for Christmas Break? next semester? spring break? next summer?
well...let me tell anyone who does not already know, I'm going far away! Kansas for Christmas break. UGANDA!!! for next semester. South Africa during the first couple months of summer. GFA head quarters are a good possibility for the end of the summer.....
God has great plans, and He is beginning to reveal some of them to me!!! I'm rather crazy excited...just in case you couldn't tell.... ^_^
Yep, I went to the mountains again! With my Dad, Sam, Phil, Zac, and Emily. A good three day an two night backpacking adventure in the Great Smokey Mtns. Now......I have to pack and prep for returning to college....why can't east TX have mtns?
Do you see the cool guy in the yellow shirt? Well, that would be my waaay cool little brother, Daniel. He makes up for the fact my older brother and I are not cool in the slightest. ^_^ Yes, he got a running scholarship to Tennessee Tech University; he is just that cool. Not only that, but he plans to be an EE!
If anyone who is reading this knows anything about state schools, you know what sort of challenges he will be facing, not just academically, but also particularly spiritually. Please, keep him in your prayers. Thank you!
This past week, I got to house-sit! I had charge of 2 dogs, 4 cats, and 4 horses (one of which is a miniature). I had the house to myself for the week, up until Friday evening when I invited my little brothers over to spend the night. ^_^ We had a good time riding one of the horses and watching Apollo 13. Here is a picture of my two youngest brothers and one of their good friends (who is like a little brother to me) at the top of the driveway.
