My Love.

I am leaving this beautiful horse today. But I think I will be alright, because I'm going to HARRY POTTER WORLD!!! 
See you Monday, lovelies.

Go Gamecocks! And...follow?

The Gamecocks beat Navy on Saturday! What a great game. The weather was oddly cold. Yeah, I said it. COLD? It took hours trying to piece together a warm/cute outfit, as normally it is still in the 90s here in Columbia. Thanks to my lovely Kappa sisters living in the house for providing me with a cute AND warm outfit. 

"Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest."
          Mark 6:31

I have far too many social networks, but if you have any of these please follow! 


Bits and pieces of my weekend.

 It was Maggie's 21st birthday. I bought here Alexander Mcqueen: Savage Beauty. A gift that at which I can marvel as well.

It was a great night! 

Tonight in Church we talked about David and Bathsheba in 2 Samuel 11. It was definitely a sermon I needed to hear. David, though described as a "man after God's own heart" was a sinner and needs a Savior just as much as the rest of us. Written by David after he had faced those struggles is Psalm 51. A personal favorite of mine. This psalm broke the hardness of my heart at Greek Summit last summer and it did the same for me tonight. 
Prepare for some Jesus-love. Because I have some things I would like to say. Enjoy!
Here are two of my favorite verses, though I am in love with the entire psalm. 

"Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones you have crushed rejoice."
v. 8

The visualization of bones being crushed is so relevant. God allows us to pursue other "gods" for worldly satisfaction for a time, but after we have grown exhausted from seeking our safety elsewhere He comes down from heaven and shakes us! He says, "Beloved, what are you doing? All you could ever need is here with Me!" This confrontation feels like bones breaking, and it makes sense. These false pillars we make cannot hold the weight of salvation. Life doesn't work that way. But once these bones of ours are no more, then can we realize that He is truly what we have been looking for. In Him we have FREEDOM, LOVE, and PERFECTION. And, my friends, you can find that no where else. How wonderful is that? He is EVERYTHING WE NEED. 

"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, 
O God, you will not despise."
v. 17

I know I have mentioned this verse before, but it reaches me in new ways every time I read it. God wants our brokenness. Jesus came to take it, and with Him it was nailed to a cross. If we believe Jesus is who He says He is, we no longer have to obey our brokenness. Our cracked, cold hearts do not have to control us. With Jesus, we are free to love and serve Him. We were designed for it. So why waste any more time chasing after these worldly desires, eventually the pillars will fall. But He NEVER will. He is always perfect and He loves you unconditionally. A love like this is only possible with Him. 
Please, read Psalm 51 all the way through, if you have the time. You won't regret it. Hey, you can even read it right here.

Have a great Monday!


Much Needed Inspiration.

The other night I was feeling overwhelmed. Not necessarily with bad circumstances, just with everything in general. There has been a lot going on, and I have felt like life is racing past me. I have had no time to enjoy the wonders of this world. I read Psalm 142 that night and it truly brought light to my situation. I am going to post the whole psalm here, I hope you like it! 

I cry aloud to the LORD; 
   I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. 
I pour out before him my complaint; 
   before him I tell my trouble.

 When my spirit grows faint within me, 
   it is you who watch over my way. 
In the path where I walk 
   people have hidden a snare for me. 
Look and see, there is no one at my right hand; 
   no one is concerned for me. 
I have no refuge; 
   no one cares for my life.

 I cry to you, LORD; 
   I say, “You are my refuge, 
   my portion in the land of the living.”

 Listen to my cry, 
   for I am in desperate need; 
rescue me from those who pursue me, 
   for they are too strong for me. 
Set me free from my prison, 
   that I may praise your name. 
Then the righteous will gather about me 
   because of your goodness to me.
Psalm 142

Have a great Saturday! Go Gamecocks!! 


Deb Weekend 2011

 All last weekend I was attending parties, luncheons, and dancing the night away. It was the 85th annual Debutante Ball and I was making my debut. 
It was so much fun, I wish it would never end! But sadly, it had to, like most wonderful things. Now I am back at school. Life is so busy so this is a quick post. Enjoy the photos! More will be coming once the professional photographer sends us his proofs. 

But when they [the disciples] saw Him walking on the lake, they thought He was a ghost. They cried out, because they all saw Him and were terrified. Immediately He spoke to them and said, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
      Mark 6:49-50

Have a great week!


My Delayed Reaction.

I know this season's Miu Miu add has been released for a while, but I want to describe my love for the entire collection. Hailee Steinfeld is my new girl crush. She is such an incredibly talented young woman, and gorgeous ta-boot! Miu Miu has definitely caught my attention with their glitter and classic shapes and colors.

I am truly in love with these shoes! An original take on the classic round toe pump. Now only if I had money to spend...
Anyways, enjoy your day! For me, today is the beginning of the North Carolina Debutante Ball weekend. A series of fancy parties and socializing. Expect some fun photos next week! 

The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up, and He let none of his words fall to the ground.
       1 Samuel 3:19


Macon: Part 3

Our last full day in Macon was relaxing. We tie-dyed in the garage while listening to the rain. 
This is my last set of photos, I promise. Though, I know you have enjoyed them! 

Today I am flying back home for my Debutante Ball. I can't wait to post those pictures! I will schedule some more posts for the weekend, I hope. Until then, have a great week!! 

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
          Philippians 4:12


Macon: Part 2

Where the first Allman Brother's album cover was shot.

And there's still more photos to come tomorrow! 
"The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First He says: "This is the covenant I will make with them after that time," says the Lord. "I will put My laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds."
       Hebrews 10:15-16
