Thoughts from Arizona

  • I love how old ladies wink when you smile at them (is that weird?)
  • I get excited when I get into airports
  • I love flying
  • I sat next to an 89 year old woman today at the airport in Phoenix. She had never been married. She said that she hadn’t found “the one”, and if you don’t love ’em, why marry ’em?
  • Hiking in mountains is amazing.
  • I love mountains.
  • Say the hard thing. It’s worth it.

Also, there should be an up and coming post about what the Lord has been teaching me about singleness/marriage/the like.


He: Psalm 119:33-40


33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes;
and I will keep it to the end.
34 Give me understanding, that I may keep your law
and observe it with my whole heart.
35 Lead me in the path of your commandments,
for I delight in it.
36 Incline my heart to your testimonies,
and not to selfish gain!
37 Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
and give me life in your ways.
38 Confirm to your servant your promise,
that you may be feared.
39 Turn away the reproach that I dread,
for your rules are good.
40 Behold, I long for your precepts;
in your righteousness give me life!

How this expresses the cry of my heart today!

Jigsaw Puzzles

So I was a sub in 6th Grade Sunday School this morning and part of the lesson involved doing jigsaw puzzles. This reminded me of the time that Taylor had a puzzle sitting on our living room table, which was really fun! When ever anyone had some time, they’d sit down and try to find a few pieces (half of the puzzle was a blue sky, not making that mistake again). This was just a great way to spend those inbetween moments, mainly because there was often another roommate working on it too, so as you’d be piecing this thing together you would generally have some sort of communication, just chatting about life and stuff.

So my idea is to constantly have jigsaw puzzles around to encourage house bonding! I think it’s a great idea, and it wasn’t immediately shot down by the few roommates that I suggested it to (though Taylor forbid puzzles with skies), so I’m gonna do it! Now I just need to actually make it to a Target or like store sometime in my life…

p.s. I hope the Lord is with me on this decision, but I am also going to stop subbing for Sunday School and join full on. I’ll have my guys from last year, I’m excited 🙂
