The Lake

I headed down to the lake today. The water was so peaceful.
I sat down and opened up my bible.

It opened to
The 23rd Psalm

                      thank. you. Lord.
                              ... just what I needed to see today

Verses 1-3 spoke to my heart BIG time

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. 

 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.

He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake. 

 I took some pictures to remember the moment...

He restores my soul.

                                      He does.

Thank you!

Thank you to all who gave, donated, helped, prayed, encouraged, and came out to the yard sale this past Saturday. It was a big success! The weather was beautiful and I met so many amazing people in the community- truly, I am so thankful! I will continue to raise money while preparing to go back to Haiti this fall. Know that every bit (help, time, donated items, etc.) is dearly appreciated. 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

May God bless each of you.

p.s. -I made/laminated bookmarks for anyone to take at the yard sale and I saw this one left on the table with a rainbow of light around the picture. Remember my 7 beautiful colors God Story? I still see those rainbows everywhere and in perfect places... truly as it says below: "To God be the Glory"

My First Trip to Haiti

I thought I would share this:

It is pictures/video from my first trip to Haiti.
(Please pause music at the bottom of this page to watch. ;)

God really changed my heart in a BIG way through this trip.
And He continues to show me daily that it's not about me. AT ALL.

Can't wait to hug up these kids again...

                              nothing compares to a relationship with 

I was watching (THIS
When I paused it, 
the (above) picture
was the freeze frame.

 ...the faith of a child.

This is what I want to be like everyday...

believing Lord, that not only can You,
                                but You will.


Today I'm remembering these stories...

I must trust Him.
I must have the faith of a child.

I must daily Lay it Down and  

because He has a purpose for my life.

He does, 

and He has one for you too.

He alone makes it Beautiful.

Remember His Faithfulness
(whatever you are going through)

He still is
and always will be Faithful.

Oh' Haiti, your on my heart!

 The other night,
 I dreamed about being back in Haiti.
Then in the last 36 hours, 
I've had Haiti on my heart 
again and again

I'm excited to go back there this Fall!!! 
So, so, so excited!

Does anyone feel called to come with me?
