These are the rambelings of a single girl, most of the time I've loved my singleness and embraced it. But the year I hit 30, for some reason singleness just seem hard. In the 2 years since I started this I've had ups and downs but through it all one thing remains, God has been there with me in every moment and every step.
This blog is about my personal journey of being single, following Christ and trying to live life as I should. To live life off the sidelines &really live.
I was so thankful to be able to get away recently to visit a friend in the Portland/Hood River area.
We had a great visit. hiking, talking, eating, grabbing coffee at just about every oppertunity.
Below are just a few shots of the trip...they aren't the good ones, these are just Iphone pictures.
I'll load some "real ones" soon.
Everyone at the Barista place is always so warm, welcoming, encouraging and friendly that is a non issue.
The topic Bonnie gave us this week was "what is a passion or intrest you'd like to nuture and grow"?
For me that has to be my creatitivity.
I'll be honest my current job doesn't allow much for the creatitity to get flowing on most days.
But everyone in a while I'll get to help work on a project with our marketing guy which allows it.
Or I'll get the oppertunity to go out and shoot, be it a wedding, or SR pictures, families or nature.
I know I want to work on the other end of just taking pictures as well.
The editing side of things so to speak.
I have the programs,
I think all I really lack is the will power
I know for me this side of things will be a little bit harder
and I also know I hate to fail.
That's probably going what holds me back.
But I'm working on it and looking into it.
I know that most of the time I do really know how to take a good picture.
I just want the skills to take that good picture and change it, make it something different.
So we shall see.....
I don't usually ask, in fact I'm pretty sure I never have. But ...
Can you help?
I know a wonderful woman, one who has touched my heart many times when she probably never knew it.
One who has had strength and courage that I often am amazed at and think I could never have.
One who has gone through things I could not imagine going through.
One who has CHOSEN to obey the call of God and go places many of us would never even consider going.
One who has also obeyed God and returned from those places even though her heart was there and she didn't want to return. She's not a saint. I'm pretty sure she wouldn't want me to make her out to be one. But she is one of the best people I have ever had the privilege to know. One that when I think of her am SO BLESSED to know her and BEYOND BLESSED that she is still here on this Earth.
I know that most of you who know me don't know her but I'm asking, for you to consider helping.
She is walking (or hopes to walk if health allows it) in the San Francisco, CA 3 Day for the cure again this year.
For her third time. She still has $1000 left to raise for the event and had one month left to do it.
She didn't ask me to ask you. In fact she doesn't know that I am.
A part of me hopes she doesn't see this and never finds out.
But I feel led to do it. I donated, Will you? Even a small amount? Every little bit will help her reach her goal. Every little bit goes to Breast Cancer Research
Every little bit will toward finding a cure for this horrible disease.
