Amazing Grace

so today i went out for a bike ride with my camera and as i was looking at God's beautiful creation and all i could think about was the song Amazing Grace.....

Amazing GRACE how sweet the sound

that saved a wretch like me

i once was lost but now am found

was blind but now i see...

Through many dangers, toils, and snares

i have already come

Tis GRACE that brought me safe thus far

and GRACE will lead me home

This song just makes me want to cry... God's grace is so amazing that he would forgive us and pull us through the good times and bad. like this song says i really once was lost and i thought that there was no point to life but then i found God and i came to realize that He is soo soo good us. WHAT AN AMAZING GOD! Not to mention the perfect love that he has shown us..UNCONDITIONAL....UNFAILING....UNENDING.... Here are two pictures i took today that i really feel like show a part of God's beautiful creation. Not only did he save us, but he also gave us such a beautiful world to live in untill he calls us home to heaven. If earth is this beautiful i can't even imagine what heaven will look like=) Thank God every day for his GRACE because we truely have been blessed with a loving, forgiving, caring Father in Heaven

Home for Easter

What a fantastic weekend..Home..it felt like i had no worries in the world.. I woke up on friday and went shopping..went home and had amazing food and spent time with my beautiful family and friends..woke up saturday..went to town..went to bishops castle..had a party..woke up sunday..went to church.. had an easter egg hunt..yummy food and a relaxing time..woke up monday.. drove ALL day back to nebraska...

When i was home it was like i had never left. that brings me to the question.. WHY IN THE HECK DID I LEAVE?!!?!? i live in the most beautiful place on earth with some of the most amazing people God has ever created.. so why did i leave? because i wanted to be away from my family? wow that was dumb.. turns out i really didn't i just thought i did. because i wanted to be independent? haha thats a joke... turns out i'm going to school at a day care.. gah... 1 MONTH. i am literally counting down the days till i can go home and never have to come back here.

When i was home for easter i realized just how important my family really is to me. I have a beautiful mother who loves me and the rest of my family like you have never seen.. an amazing sister and brother inlaw who are both so inlove with each other and love all of us.. and a brother who may annoy the CRAP out of me but i LOVE him anyway. Isn't it amazing how much God has blessed me yet i still find reasons to complain? and the above doesn't even include my dad who wasn't able to be there because he was busy working in hawaii for my family.. WOW!!! i really need to stop complaining! time to pick up my head and deal with this next month....school, friends, boyfriend and all...

This is Who I Am

I am from John and Jeanene, Bill and Dorthy, Dick and JoEllen.

From the Wet Mountains of Colorado to the crashing waves of Hawaii to the flat plains of Nebraska.

From cold, snowy winters to flowing volcanoes to crashing waves, and now currently corn as far as the eye can see.

I’m from the country and the city, and even the beach.

Hunters, ranchers, farmers, and fisherman. Friends, sisters, brothers and baseball players.

When you can’t get out in the snow then stay in and play games, there is no thanksgiving without family, turkey, and cinnamon rolls, back to back state baseball champs, and a community of friendship.

I’m from “What’s the magic word?” and “Are we there yet?” and “Don’t look a gifted horse in the mouth.” And of course “love your neighbor as yourself.”

I’m from builders, artists, air force pilots, musicians, scholars, and life-lovers.

I’m from love, happiness, laughter, friendship, and faith seekers.
