Today I Turn Twenty-Seven...

I have to admit I haven't given this post that much thought. Don't get me wrong, I've given it thought, but not as much as I have in previous years. Between thesis proposal deadlines and late nights in the office, I've mostly spent the quiet moments of these last few days reflecting upon all that has happened in the past year. 

I went back last night and read posts from this day when I turned 23, 24, 25, and 26. It's amazing to look back and read the anticipation of the unknown, now that I know what happens next. Yet here I am once again, not knowing what this next year will hold. I only know that I am so thankful for all of the new people, projects, adventures, relationships, and reunions that 26 brought me. It was a year of growth and new beginnings, obstacles and adventures. 

If twenty-seven is anything like this last year, then bring it on. I'm beyond excited to discover what all lies ahead. 

Searching last night for the perfect song to share with you today, I came across the tune below. Passenger, it seems you wrote a song with this day in mind.

Now, if you'll excuse me I have to go call Mema and wish her a happy birthday. She's always been my most favorite of birthday buddies. I'm so thankful I get to share this day with her.

Alright, twenty-seven, here's to keeping my spring chicken ways! Enjoy!

Lord, Can You Hear Me Now...

It's funny how you don't truly miss things until they're gone. Until they've seemingly vanished. Until you feel they are just beyond your fingertips. It seems that lately I've been craving a slice of something more. Something so much greater than myself. I have to admit that since moving to Vancouver I've encountered a bit of a spiritual void. As if a layer of thick haze lies between God and this part of the world. The God I know is true. The God I revere. The God I love. The God I know loves me.

I know He's here. I know He hears me. Every now and then I feel Him peaking through the clouds smiling down on me. A reminder than His love never fails.

It's all a season, and it's all part of His greater plan. 

My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken - Psalm 62:1-2

Lord, can you hear me now or am I lost...

Don't you know I love you and I always have... Hallelujah.

A heavy sigh. enjoy.
