just so you know...

just so you know....i'm awesome.

so awesome, in fact, that i can embarrass myself to no end. my intelligence and smarticleness is a phenomenon.

today while walking to class, i was carrying my umbrella.

and let me tell you, if you live in beaufort county, you know it was quite the day for umbrellas. it rained like it was going out of style. thanks hurricane Isaac. USCB now has a lake. AND possibly a swimming pool. those weren't there yesterday!

anyways, it wasn't raining when i was holding my umbrella, so i thought i would try and be cool and twirl the umbrella around. i was doing awesome until about 30 seconds into my fun. and then....

i dropped my umbrella. everyone has that, smack in the face where they are doing something pretty well. and then all of the sudden, you make a fool of yourself.

the key is to play it off by picking up your umbrella and then pulling out your phone and continuing on your merry way as if nothing happened.

God is always good.

i feel like i have made a previous blog post with a similar title before, but i think one can never have to many blog posts with this title. because it is so true.

HE is so good.
HE is always good.

HE has been testing my faith to the max lately though, but has answered my prayers through and through.

i found out in july that i didn't get work study at my school, something i was blessed with for the entirety of my freshman year in college. so needless to say, i was bummed. BUT i was able to get on a waiting list for it. and i was near the top of the list.

i went and told my former boss at the library this news. she then asked me if i still wanted to work at the library. and of course i told her i did. so she said that if i sent her my class schedule for the fall that she would look at it and let financial aid know that she wanted to rehire me, so they wouldn't have to retrain someone and because they liked having me. (and that makes me blush....hahah)

well after some major financial and schedule changes, i got an email this morning from my former boss at the library, telling me to go to financial aid ASAP for rehire!!!

so it looks as if i may be working at the library again! i'm so happy! it's a huge answer to prayer! i loved working there last year. and this will help so much with my current financial situation with school.

my mom reminded me of this the other day and i am continually reminding my self: no situation is bigger then GOD.

and GOD'S timing is always perfect.

"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to HIS purpose." Romans 8:28

let me see you wobble


i had the amazing opportunity to go an be a leader for a youth camp that i was a part of, with the same youth group that i am a leader in that i was also a student in not to long ago. FLOW baby. that's where it's at.

we headed up to Fort Bluff in Tennessee. such a beautiful camp, and their second year hosting us! i hope this becomes the new permanent place for FLOW, i really do.

my dear friend chandra and i had the BEST SMALL GROUP EVER. hands down. no arguing this one folks.

Ale', Ashley, and Adeline ( we should have been called the A-TEAM. hahahahahaha...): ya'll were such a huge encouragement to me this past week. i'm blessed to have been one of your leaders. thank you girls for opening up, and sharing your thoughts, wisdom, and what the Lord has been teaching you. LOVE YOU!!!

These ladies are fantastic.

i was so encouraged by, not only my small group, but by the youth in general. there is always a night at FLOW that asks for a commitment to God or salvation. and the number of kids that committed themselves to God for His plan in their lives was incredible. i pray that they take this commitment to heart and live it through their daily lives.

to all you highschoolers, watching your growth  throughout the week was also a huge encouragement. thank you. 

this flow also brought back my love for praise music.......

"For so long I've been sleeping 
Dead Inside 
In so many ways, so many ways I've tried to hide 
But you breathed deep into me Your melody 
What was life before You? 
I don't remember 
I don't remember life that way 

I, I get lost inside 
The wonder of Your beauty 
A melody so sweet I'll sing forever 
Of your love " -melody by audio adrenaline


Falling on my knees in worship
Giving all I am to seek your face
Lord all I am is yours
My whole life
I place in your hands
God of Mercy
Humbled I bow down
In your presence at your throne

I called you answered
And you came to my rescue and I
I wanna be where you are

In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high

-came to my rescue by hillsong

these were just some of the amazing songs that were sung in the last week. 

and last but not least......the wobble.

yes. it's very likely that we did this dance as a group on more then one occasion. and yes....it's very likely i got video proof of it. don't worry though- i did wobble myself. JUST NOT ON CAMERA.

instead of pictures, i got some video footage from each day. once i start getting them put together, i'll post them for ya'll to see.

until then.....

let me see you wobble.

little does anyone know that this entire surprise party was the easiest thing to plan, kinda. this is simply because cara went on ahead and planned it. but she didn't know his would actually happen.


are we awesome or what?

happy belated birthday cara! love you.
enjoy this beautiful video.
remember the good times that happened almost two weeks ago.

all you need is coffee.

and now, after watching all that beautifulness, you are asking yourself "WHAT IS THIS??"

i can answer that question. this was my final project for my business writing class. we were suppose to come up with a video for a fictitious business proposal. this is basically a commercial of what my "coffee place" COULD be.

now, after watching this, i know you want to come to my coffee shop. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.............................................no.
