Stay Strong

Stay strong, you are not lost, come on and fix your eyes ahead.
There's a new dawn to light our way.

Stay strong, you and I run for the prize that lies ahead.
We've come too far to lose our way.

Stay strong, his grip is sure, and his patience still endures.
They'll be no letting go today, no way.

Get up.
This race can be won.

Cry Out to Jesus

God, I thank you for being faithful.

For never leaving me no matter how many times I may run from you. For listening and hearing my cries no matter how much I try to block out your voice sometimes. For keeping a steady hand on me no matter how much I try to fight your arms that are holding on to me.

Father, I thank you for being faithful. Bring me back home.

Lauren Christine.

Today was one of those days where anything but blessings seem to fade.

Your focus is altered off of your problems and troubles and instead on the simple and yet beautiful aspects of life that are so often taken for granted. Such as...

Jumbo cinnamon rolls.
Sunburns. In WASHINGTON.
Cozy sweatshirts.
Warm chocolate chip cookies.
Your dad playing with your hair and wondering where you got the color from.
Eating Chinese food.
Savoring every little moment you have left with your older sibling- every song, every car ride, every talk.
Blaring music like its August.
Talking with old friends you haven't spoken to since December.
The sound of your sister singing off-key.
The smell of tulips.
The feel of aloe vera.
Taste of hot tea.

Spring :)
