hmm

so my last post "i love life"
was more to remind myself. That I am happy to be alive. and living. and breathing.

Today was a weird day, but good.
God has been all over me, and blessing me and I just know that the peace that I have in my heart can only come from Him. I have been feeling closer to God than I have in months. More alive. Even though I just went through one of the toughest break-up's I have ever gone through. Weird. I wake up and the Bible has been feeding me in a new way. God speaking words over me that are EXACTLY what I need for the day.
Which is amazing.
Because this is definitely not a cheery situation that I find myself in.

My friend Angela challenged me a few days ago to make a 5 year plan. I hate making plans but its been good for me to think of a purpose for which I am striving for. To make a plan that is so big, so full of huge dreams, that I can't even think with my measly little human mind how it would ever come to be. Its been making me think a lot about my goal to be overseas full time. To take photography. Maybe do a little bit of schooling. To impact youth, to be radical, to learn, grow, invest in people, smile when I walk down the street, read the Bible more, to have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Kingdom is doing in my community.

Its been fun dreaming at night...and going through season 1 of Gilmore Girls. Hey, this girl needs a little lighthearted television right now ok?

Here's a random picture of me just in case you forgot what I looked like. I have no idea what this facial expression is nor will I try and define it. It just is!

I want to bake you cookies so bad right now, but I don't know if they'd travel well. I know I'm probably not one to talk, but if I know anything it's that obnoxious feeling that at your lowest you are brought into new strengths. Were were they earlier I always thought.

...and EAT SOMETHING, you look so thin.

*hands an imaginary cookie*

You are a soulful beauty, Miss Hannah. To gaze into your brown eyes would be a pleasure for any man.
