here we go again...

For those of you who know me, I enjoy poetry, and I like to pretend that I can write it, but I rarely come out with a good one. But I wrote one for the first time in too long, so I thought I'd share it with you! =)

Shattered dreams lie in broken disarray,
the vibrance of love has been dulled to a weary grey.
She is looking for someone to wipe away her tears,
But there is nothing but silence, it has been for years.
Her crown is gone; she has been robbed
Of her innocence and worth, while she sat there and sobbed.
She was deceived by beautiful lies,
Who was deceptive and deaf to her wrenching cries.
She simply sits there, day after day,
With nothing to do, and nothing to say.
She is one of many nameless faces,
Whose hearts were stolen in secret places.
She is sick of dreaming tired dreams,
And wants to hear more than a silent scream.
She is looking for something, something new,
Maybe, just maybe, she is looking for you.
She is waiting for something, something new,
Maybe just maybe, she is waiting for you.

So lately, I've been digging the Saint Francis quotes. Weird I know, but I wanted to share with ya'll some of mi favorito!

"Preach the Gospel at all times, and when neccessary, use words."

“Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.”

A really great prayer...

Here is a prayer that I love, and try to use. My friend Amy sent it to me, and I wanted to share it with you guys!

"Lord God, your Word declares that if I delight myself in you—if I enjoy and seek your pleasure above mine—you'll give me the desires of my heart (Psalm 37:4). Desiring a husband is neither evil nor selfish because marriage is honorable (Hebrews 13:4). At the beginning of creation, you proclaimed, "It is not good that man should be alone" and then you created Eve to be a suitable partner for Adam (Genesis 2:18). In the name of Jesus, I ask that you would protect the husband—a suitable partner—you have chosen for me. Because the covenant of marriage is sacred (Mark 10:9), I ask for a man of God. Please give me a husband whose love for me is only outmatched by his love for you; a man who will cherish me and build me up (Proverbs 31:28); a man who will honor me (I Peter 3:7) and our marriage vows; a man who will be a good father and provider; a man whom I will be attracted to physically, emotionally, and spiritually; a man who will love me as Christ loved the church (Ephesians 5:25). Keep me from attaching myself to another man out of desperation. I will not settle for a relationship that's second best, convenient, or one that feeds my insecurities. Guard my purity and give me the patience to wait. And when I meet him, confirm to me that he is the one. Release from me the baggage of past relationships, and prepare me for the man You have chosen to be my husband. Free me from any hindrances to a healthy and godly marriage: insecurities, habitual sins, selfishness, and emotional hurts. Dispel my unrealistic expectations that set me up for disappointment. I place my trust in you rather than my partner. In this period of waiting, I will look to you alone to be my companion and best friend. You are the one who redeems my life from the pit, who crowns me with love and compassion, who satisfies my desires with good things (Psalm 103:4-5). I will not be anxious, but as I present my requests to you, flood me with the peace that surpasses all understanding so my heart and my mind are guarded in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6,7). In this request, I commit myself to trust you and do good, to dwell in the land and feed on your faithfulness. I commit my way to you and trust that you will bring it to pass (Psalm 37:35).Amen"

Clearly Contrasted Callings:

Below is a part of a great book called Battle Cry For MY guys should really read it. Its about standing up and being a warrior for Christ 24-7.

A club Member...
~Pursues a common interest.
~Consumes some free time.
~Passes the time to make the day fun.
~Considers preparation as optional to staying involved
~Finds courage not neccessary.

A soldier...
~Pursues a common mission
~Dedicates a whole life
~Gathers fellow warriors
~Seizes the day to make the battle count
~Considers preparation as crucial to staying alive
~ Finds courage indispensable.

"Living for Christ was never meant to be a partway thing. It is a radical, life changing decision to the controls of your life over to God---forever."

"We're facing a battle as equally terrifying as the Allies faced on D-Day. This battle however, is spiritual...they knew the actions they were planning were dangerous, but they also knew that the greatest risk was doing nothing."

Remember: real lives are waiting on the other side of YOUR obedience.

I want your opinions...

Okay, so I want your opinions on this.
This year for Lent, I committed to doing the 40 Days of Water Challenge...meaning, no juice, coffee *sobs* no Starbucks...only water (don't worry, we eat too!) I am just not supposed to drink anything but water for 40 days. But then my cousin pointed out that I don't eat very many fruits and veggies, and my main source of Vitamin C comes from my twice-daily cup of grapefruit juice. But she was worried that I might get sick because I am not drinking any I want to hear what you guys think. Should I break the fast for health reasons, or should I stick it out?

Something my history teacher posted...that I loved :)

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
