I know the font is kinda small... I'll just post the words here it case you can't make them out... :-D

"I stand upon Your promise Lord, You have a plan for me, and though I may not see it yet I’ll trust You faithfully. You have spoken into my heart a message strong and true, so I’ll gather up my courage Lord and humbly follow You."

This verse (from the song entitled "Trusting You") has really been encouraging to me lately... I know He has a plan for my life, but it's so very hard sometimes to just let go and trust Him.

Teaser picture of my adorable nephew...

Sam, Jennifer, and I took Michael out for a photo-shoot today...
I had so much fun! And I had a wonderful team to work with! Michael is such an adorable (and very cooperative) model! If I do say so myself! (But I might be just a little prejudice, what do you think?!)
**More photos coming soon!**

1 John 4:7

This verse (among many others) has really been on my heart lately. The passage goes on to say: "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another."

1 John 4:7-11 is the passage that my younger siblings have been memorizing lately, so hearing it more has helped me to really listen to what is says. I find myself quoting verse 8 over and over in my head through out the day... "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
It's so hard sometimes to remember to love, to really love one another with the kind of love that God has for us, but I find this passage very helpful in that area. I think it's really neat how God will give us a certain verse or passage to read and think about just at the right time, do you know what I mean? God is so good!
