A Java Chip Frappucino is Calling my Name...

All the cool kids are gonna be at Starbucks at 7:30!!! Whoo hoo!!!

I wish I had something deep to write today. I was reading Cari\'s entry and my jaw just about hit the floor. I want to do great and mighty things for God, but I guess I can\'t imagine going in a savage area to spread His good news. I would of course, but I\'ve always believed that I was called to stay right here in the U.S.A.
Before I got online, I started looking at my future college classes. Looking through the college catalog used to equal stress, anxiety, and confusion, but now looking through the catalog excites me about all that is ahead. I feel such a peace about electronic media production. When I tell people my major, half of them look at me like I spoke a foreign language, but I know it\'s sooooo right for me. I\'m not even sure if production is in my future, but I know that this is the right direction.
This is what I know: there are many things I want to do, and the Scriptures say that in whatever we do, we should do for the glory of God. I also know that God has great plans and He can make anything possible. In my lifetime I would love to be a wife, mother, writer, photographer, producer, director... I don\'t know what the future looks like for me, but I know I have nothing to worry about. It\'s all in God\'s hands... and that\'s exciting!

*EDIT* Starbucks/mall/Target was fun. It was me, Garrett, Graham, Aimee, Cameron, Rachael, and Sarah. It was an odd group in a way, but a very good group and we enjoyed ourselves. So what is everyone else\'s excuse for skipping out???

Quick Remark:

The Penguins are Psychotic!

So Garrett and I went and saw Madagascar tonight. We both agreed that it was funny, but not quite what we expected it to be. My favorite part was probably when the penguins ended up in Antartica... and my favorite line was: \"the penguins are psychotic!\" I also loved the little furry creature... I don\'t think he had a name, but he was cute. Anyhow, While You Were Sleeping is on TV! But Dad just changed the channel... darn it... LOL... but anyways... so we were watching the previews before the movie, and Garrett nearly fell out of his chair laughing during The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl preview. It was pretty funny... that movie looks incredibly cheesy and dumb! We saw a new preview for Willy Wonka that made me want to see it more. The boy who plays Charlie is Peter from Finding Neverland... I love him because he is soooooo adorable! We also saw the Nicados (minus Lauren) at the movies as well as Graham\'s dad, who was getting a popcorn refill in the middle of Batman Begins (which looks like it might be a good movie as well. What did y\'all think Drew and Graham?) Speaking of Belle Aire people, I saw Rachael Vance at the dermatologist. Well, I guess I\'m going to get ready for bed now...

AMAZING!!!

Big Stuf, in a word, was amazing! You know, I really enjoyed it last year, but I think I got a lot more out of it this year. It was like God just really showed up there in my life and in the whole camp. Tuesday night\'s worship was probably the most awesome and intense worship I have ever been through! It was crazy! I made a couple of new friends, and I also got closer to some old friends and aquaintances. I learned a lot about myself, my relationship with Garrett (1 year and 1 month today), God, my purpose in life, missions, how I can make an impact, my friends, and the difference between the right thing and the wise thing. I honestly did not want to come home... yet how could I live out what I learned if I stayed at camp the rest of my life? How can I live out my mission and see how God wants to work through my life and talents for His glory if I didn\'t leave? I seriously wish that everyday I could listen to a speaker like Jarod Herd or Louie Giglio and experience worship through music by a band like the Big Stuf band. But even that would become routine and mediocre after a while. I have to learn how to make God a part of my life everyday, even when I do\'t feel the high. Anyhow, it was just a really awesome week! I started uploading some pics from the week and will continue to do so throughout the day.

Funny Quote of the Week:
\"Hey, guy I like!\" -Louie Giglio seriously calling out to Clint!

Serious Quotes of the Week:
\"The question we should be asking is \'what is the wise thing to do\'?\" -Jarod
\"Do you just believe in God, or do you believe God?\" -Louie

I Hate BellSouth Dial-Up

I don\'t know how I managed to get on, but I finally did! This is to say goodbye until next Thursday or late Wednesday night. Please pray the hurricane/tropical storm/evil Arlene/impending doom on Florida doesn\'t get us all. If you\'re going to Big Stuf, as Brian King said, see y\'all dark and early tomorrow morning!

True Beauty Part 2

\"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment... Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.\" -1 Peter 3:3a & 4

\"...true beauty comes from the inner part of us. Our hearts. A heart ay resy... A woman in her glory, a woman of beauty, is a woman who is not striving to become beautiful or worthy or enough. She knows in her quiet center where God dwells that he finds her beautiful, has deemed her worthy, and in him, she is enough.\" -from Captivating

\"You still my heart, and you take my breath away, would you take me in, would you take me deeper now, and how can I stand here with you, and not be moved by you, would you tell me how could it be, any better than this?\" -Lifehouse

\"Everything she does is beautiful, everything she does is right.\" -Lifehouse

\"Then you came around me, the walls just dissapeared, nothing to surround me, keep me from my fears, I\'m unprotected, see how I\'ve opened up, you\'ve made me trust, I\'ve never felt like this before, I\'m naked around you... trying to remember, why I was afraird to be myself, and let the covers fell away, guess I never had someone like you, to help me fit in my own skin.\" -Avril Lavigne

So today I am learning that I have a beauty that is unveiled when my heart is at rest... when I am still with God. So many times, I feel I always have to be busy. Maybe that\'s why God has forced me to the summer situation I am in... I am being forced to rest and stay still. This is what it has taken for me to abide in Him and seek Him. He wants me to discover His beauty, and in turn, I too will become more beautiful.

Big Stuf tomorrow... hope we don\'t... as Cari said... get eaten by the tropical storm!
