It's funny how life works out sometimes. Sometimes you can so easily get caught up in your own world, own problems and not want to stop to love others. Why does something tragic have to happen in order for a person to realize their purpose? A dear friend of mine was hit by a car tonight. She's only twelve and is in intensive care. Why do things like these happen? I don't know. But isn't that reason enough to live like Christ? Shouldn't we be doing all we can to give the glory to God? Because He is the One and Only that can heal us and our loved ones. Show the love Christ has given you to those surrounding you, your brothers and sisters in Christ. If you happen to stumble upon this please keep Paetyn Zeamer in your prayers for a full recovery and allow her to be a witness for Christ.

Outer Banks, North Carolina
After pulling an all-nighter to pack and leaving good ol' PA at five in the morning, we finally arrived in Corolla around four in the afternoon. PHEW! And it was all worth it when we pulled into the driveway of our new home for the next week. Jumping in the hot tub was definitely the way to end the day. We spent our day at the beach soaking up the sun and loving life. I took a stroll with a friend down the shore and got lost in conversation. It was so good to reconnect with another follower of Christ... so encouraging! I found myself pouring out what had been on my heart lately and realized I need to continuously chase the heart of God no matter the circumstance. I want Jesus to lead my life.. not for me. I have been so blessed and this trip was the perfect way to start my summer.

In a matter of four days, I will be beach bound. I'm in much need of some sun time and fellowship. A group of crazy college-aged kids will be piling into a van and venturing to the beautiful Outer Banks. Relaxing. Sunning. Fellowship. Late Nights. And Shenanigans. What more can you ask for?? This is going to be a vacation for the memories.

A new season is a new beginning. And I really need a refresh button. A start-over. To take what I've experienced in the past and use it for the future and whatever God has in store for me. I'm so ready to be renewed! I've seen how the Lord has worked in my life before and I'm ready to get back on that track. I pray continuously that I won't veer from the path but I fail. Failure is a part of growth, now I understand that. I'm ready to be tested. The Lord will provide me with the strength to get through whatever is in my path. I'm ready for my will to be strengthened. Renew my heart lord because only love prevails.

What better way to spend a sunny afternoon, than with your best friend at the local coffee shop. In Annville, MJ's offers the best window seats to people watching galore and my favorite Peach Mango Tea straight from a steaming pot. An attractive, possibly homosexual but hopefully metrosexual, man sits off to our right which adds to our people watching extravaganza. We brought work and papers to attempt to write and study anticipating the upcoming and stressful finals week, but seem to be distracted by the business of cars and people trafficking by. Just an ordinary day in Annville, Pa awaiting a dear friend to join us in our coffee shop fun.
