"'oh God!' I cried and that was all. but what are the cries of the whole universe more than expansion of that one cry? it is not what God can give us, but God we want."

okay, just one more post for the night.. how could i not mention rend?
rend collective is a group of the most humble, authentic, joyful, genuine and creative irish folk. we got the pleasure of meeting them all.
these people create some of my favorite worship music. theyre one of the bands you can listen to and it doesnt make you think, “these guys are really good!” (even though they are), but it makes you think about how good and awesome God is.
their newest album, the art of celebration, is one of my most favorite CDs. they’ve taught me so much about joy this year, ad thats a hugely important thing.
meeting them was one of my favorite experiences - it was like making new friends! i wish i could hang out with them all the time. also, we gotta appreciate their irish accents ;) i can quote most of our conversations from memory.
they’ve got big hearts and a contagious love for Jesus and inspire me in so many ways.

can it really have been two years now?
maybe its a little silly that i keep track of these things and celebrate them every year… but i just wish i could express how much this night meant to me. i’m afraid, however, thats impossible.
from being able to go with some my closest friends, to meeting new ones, it was a generally fun night and overall a life-changing milestone, in my own life and in my best friends’. and now its just a memory, but its one that i will never forget and reminisce about often. i still regularly go back and watch the videos over and over.
tenth avenue north has impacted my life more times than i can count, in so many ways. i am so thankful for them.
sorry for ranting, friends - but today is a very good day.

“so if you’re waiting, and the darkness feels too heavy, and hope feels like its lost - i want you to just lift your eyes up and hold on a little longer.. you never know when redemption is coming around the corner.”
i cant tell you how many times i’ve listened to @mikedonehey ‘s speech and how much it encourages me over and over. the whole thing is on youtube :)
they’re all telling me i need a to get a smart degree & a good job & make good money…
maybe i’m far too naive but i dont think i can accept that
i want to do missions & thats the only thing i could dream of investing my life into, everything else feels like a waste of time
dreaming practically was never my strength & for now i’m perfectly okay with that
because i’m only going to get anywhere close if i try & i’m only going to try if i believe its possible
jesus lets go on an adventure
i think i was made to be outdoors all hours of the day
Are we out of the woods yet?

I JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO GET NICE TATTOOS AND TRAVEL AND GO TO LOADS OF CONCERTS AND MEET NEW PEOPLE AND VISIT AMAZING PLACES AND COZY COFFEE SHOPS AND ADOPT CUTE PUPPIES AND SLEEP IN THE BACK OF A TRUCK WITH A PLETHORA OF BLANKETS AND STAR GAZE AND TAKE PICTURES OF NICE THINGS AND JUST NOT CARE ABOUT ANYTHING
