True Beauty

I can do a series... ok probably not.

\"I want to be beautiful, make you stand in awe, look inside my heart, and be amazed, I want to hear you say, who I am is quite enough, I just want to be worthy of love, and beautiful...\" (Bethany Dillon)

\"Gaze into my eyes, let me know you\'d fight thousands for my love, slip your hand in mine, ask me to dance with you tonight, just ask me, for my love...\" (Bethany Dillon)

\"I like you the way you are, when we\'re driving in your car, and you\'re talking to me one on one...\" (Avril Lavigne)

As I read this book Captivating, I\'m learning that my true beauty is revealed when I allow my Savior to romance me. And to think, that the Creator of everythig loves, values, and even romances me! Crazy isn\'t it?

Today I felt very confident. I was having a good day. Well, I went to get a haircut, and I was ok with that, and it turned out ok. At least, I think it did. But the woman did not dry my hair... so I really couldn\'t tell. Then I was kinda upset... like well crud now my hair\'s wet. Well, after going home and eating dinner, my hair eventually dried. Before Garrett came over (he\'s FINALLY back home! yay!) I noticed that my hair dried wavy, but differently than it usually does when I air dry my hair, because it was only part of my hair that was damp. Well, at one point while Garrett was over I went to the bathroom, and I noticed my hair again. And I could see that it had turned out... beautiful. That sounds really vain... but I think it was God telling me... \"see, you really are beautiful! Always and no matter what!\"

Sometimes I can be such a drama queen... I listen to Bethany Dillon and/or Avril Lavigne to feed my girly needs, and today I learned that music is a way that God romances. All the beauty in the earth, whether through song or creation or whatever, is God\'s way of calling out to me, and that\'s pretty awesome.

Girls love to be pursued, and God pursues me daily. Sometimes I don\'t let Him though. Now, more than ever, I really want to let Him in and work through me.

True Love

I learned about true love and true friendship last night. Now, I know I\'m not the best friend or the best person, and I\'m definitely not trying to brag or be like \"Hey I\'m cool, be like me.\" But last night I learned that true love is truly putting yourself aside when your friend needs you. True love is being there no matter what. True love is being willing to sacrifice for someone else. But when you truly love someone, it doesn\'t seem like much of a sacrifice. It may be somewhat inconvenient, but you care more about your friend than your inconvenience. That\'s true love. Both in a friendship and in a romantic relationship. You truly love someone when you think about someone before you think about yourself. When was the last time you saw a TV show, watched a movie, or listened to a song that supported that idea? When\'s the last time you lived it? Last night changed my persepective.

\"Love is patient, love is kind... it is not self-seeking... It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.\" -from 1 Cor. 13

*EDIT* This is what Kelly said about me (with the questions from the previous two entries):
AMY -- 01. You\'re never in a bad mood. Ever. 02. The song \"Beautiful One\" that\'s sometimes sung in youth all of a sudden popped into my brain, so we\'ll go with that. 03. 10:00 in the morning. 04. Devoted. 05. Talking prom and a whole lot of other stuff after school that one day. :) 06. A canary! 07. What does the future hold for you after college?

A Tribute to Nathan

photo from bee136

So, in honor of Nathan leaving today for NY, I am tributing this entry to him. I was going to write a cheesy ode that rhymed and such, but decided against it. I may be pretty good with words, but I\'m much better at just saying what I mean than coming up with poetry or limeriks or anything of the like. So with all that in mind... Nathan... it\'s going to be tough at first, for us in the Boro and for you there. But we\'ll all adjust. I suppose I\'m just speaking frankly because I know what it\'s like to move and I also know what it\'s like for friends to leave. I\'m going to miss you, but I\'m soooooo happy for you because I know that what\'s ahead of you is going to be so great and awesome because God\'s got plans for you. He has taken your hand and led you to a city that desperately needs to see Him. What an awesome responsibility! Know that you are dearly loved... you have to keep in touch and let us know what God is doing over there... Jeremiah 29:11...
