Peace and quiet. Sometimes it nice to get away from the busy bustle of students in the hallways. Chatter and irrelevant laughter. It's nice to sit alone, quietly in the library and focus God, music and my blog. I know I know, I've been terrible at posting lately. I apologize for that haha. I would say it's because I've been super busy.. but to be honest I have not been busy at all. I have just been enjoying regular Starbucks visits with friends. Chatting over a hot coffee, inhaling the oh-so addicting smell of coffee grounds. I swear the people at Starbucks think i have no place else to be, cause I'm there four out of seven days haha. Whether it's by myself, working on homework, having God time, or with company, I always seem to be there! I have been enjoying sitting and reflecting on my future and what God has in store for my relationships. I have been enjoying the last little bit of fall before winter rolls in. I can tell my favorite season is coming to a close because of the bare trees and the cold, chilling air that blows through my hair as i stand at the bus stop. I am so pumped for this coming weekend. Ignite is a youth conference that is held every year at my church, and each year grows bigger and bigger. This year Starfield is coming! So stoked :) Coming together with hundreds of youth, worshipping for an entire weekend..what could be better? I am preparing my heart for what God has to teach me and I know God is going to do amazing things in the hearts of everyone there. I will definatly blog more about Ignite when the weekend comes to a close :)

Good morning! Wow, I can't believe september is already coming to a close. Sitting in Starbucks with my best friend,Meaghan, reflecting on this past month, I realize that I did have some downs, but I had an incredible amount of ups :) Going to Starbucks and treating myself to a Pumpkin Spice latte every week, camp appreciation lunch, Skype dates with Emily, waking up early to read my Bible, volunteering at Hope Mission, church fall kick off, fall photoshoots, tea with my best friend Renae, vintage inspiration from all around me, lots of laughs, great friends and the sheer joy of crisp, fall mornings all made for amazing month full of amazing moments.

With love peace and happiness,

A couple of verses that have been an encouragement this month :

"So, friends, take a firm stand, feet on the ground and head high. Keep a tight grip on what you were taught, whether in personal conversation or by our letter. May Jesus himself and God our Father, who reached out in love and surprised you with gifts of unending help and confidence, put a fresh heart in you, invigorate your work, enliven your speech" { 2 Thessalonians 2:15-17 } THE MESSAGE

"For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit." { 1 Thessalonians 4:7- 8 NIV }
