a rainy, curly hair, rain boots, cars 2 kind of day

For the past 2 days, it has been pouring in Tally which is totally fine with me seeming as how I love rain, and more importantly, I love rain boots!!! There's just something about the rain that makes me smile. I love how cozy it is, the sound of the rain drops hitting the roof while you drift off to sleep, or watching the drops fall as you daydream about anything and everything imaginable, and I love how the rain purifies the air and makes everything crisp and alive. and if you know me, you know I'm a rain boot fanatic! I have a zebra pair and a rainbow polka dot pair, I adore jumping into puddles with them on! I also have a hot pink and white rain coat and I'm working on getting a monogrammed umbrella. If you know me, you also know that I am the monogram queen....seriously. :)  I also did not feel like doing my hair this morning which means I scrunched it and that actually turned out great because there is no humidity in the air therefore, my hair has stayed curly all day. SCORE!  and to top it all off, Brandy just texted me and wants to go see Cars 2 tonight EVEN BIGGER SCORE! (we really are such dorks). All in all what we've learned today is that rain + curly hair + rain boots and rain coat + Cars 2 + best friend date = EPIC SUCCESS!!

these are my zebra rain boots :)

the mission field of Tallahassee

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy. 1 Peter 1:8

I have often spoken about the heart and desire God has given me for His people. The more I long for Him, the more He is showing me that I don't have to go outside of the country or even Tallahassee to show His love. I now try and see people the way Christ would have me to see them. Tallahassee is such a huge mission field, we have 3 major college campuses. What an awesome ministry God has placed right in front of me! I am reminded over and over of the verse which states, they will know who you follow by your fruit. Our countenance and attitude can make or break the relationships we form with people and first impressions do matter. Can someone see Jesus in you? At my high school graduation, a song was performed and it repeatedly said over and over you may be the only Jesus some will ever see. That has stuck with me and constantly makes me think of the impressions I have made thus far on the people God has allowed me to come into contact with. When people remember me, I want them to remember the love of Christ.
