grey matter

So I have not written, in what seems, 'a coon's age'.
I am not sure, as to the reason. But I do apologize. Life, it seems, caught up with me... It has been over a week, since the exceptionally eventful purchase of my oh-so-lovely wedding dress... and the thought of it, I am proud to say: brings me sheer joy! True Story.
In the meantime, my head and heart have been full, and yet lacking particular clarity, I would say... Last week I had the privilidge of having more spare time than usual, and it was so wonderful. I read a lot, and journaled. All, very lovely things to do in your spare time.

I am only slightly ashamed to say, part of that time was designated to some serious '24' watching - good old Kiefer Sutherland, and '24'... It was great. I stayed up significantly late on Saturday night, to finish watching Season 3 (we rented them on DVD...). And it was so worth it.

Do I have anything significant to say? I don't think so.
I can say that my heart feels very full - as does my mind. Almost numb feeling... and full in terms of thoughts running rampant, that I can't really pin down... I'm not sure what it really is... but I have had so many thoughts as of late. It's almost like fatigue...
Do you ever feel the eternity of your soul? I know that sounds so "vague" and "romantic" - and yet sometimes, the way that life presses in, and I just sort of sit back, and take it in... I feel eternity in moments... it's a scary thing, and yet a beautiful thing, all at once. Almost in a mist - haze - It reminds me how fragile, and yet permanent I am. How it all matters, and yet doesn't matter at all...
I should end, because you know - when my brain is fuzzy, not too many interesting things emerge! WOAH! So I would looooove to end, with a prayer for my friends! Because I love you guys!

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his might strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms..."
Ephesians 1:16-20

oh so much love,

I'm sorry - I would post pictures... but Adrian can view this sight.
You'll just hve to trust me when I say - I'm BREATHTAKING!!!!!


By the way: what is it with my short blog entries lately...? I suppose there has just been TOO many quick things I need to tell people.
So I apologize for the lack of content, and for the dull material. I mean, my wedding dress is pretty STINKING EXCITING... but when you can't see it... it tends to be note quite as exciting... yah... you know... Well I'M excited. ahem.

By the way:
Aren't we looking AWFULLY afraid of SOMETHING or other in that picture?
I mean really... we are scared! of the camera... of the car in front of us that we are disregarding as we take this picture... of the bison... of the unusual way my top lip has disapeared in this picture...

Either way:
we are afraid - and lookin' it.
mmmm hmmm....

"Stick a fork in me, I'm done!"
I would like to dedicate this "entry" to my freakishly AMAZING fiance, Mister Adrian Enns. I would like to state for the record, that he is unbelievably amazing, and I am SO LUCKY to have snagged such a catch! SERIOUSLY!
Ladies: hold out! Because crazy, wacky, loving, and oh-so-wonderful men are OUT THERE! true story.
Now, I had to have a reason to put this picture on here, right? So I thought - what better reason, than Adrian himself? REALLY!?!? There IS no better reason. Kudos to my man!

BUGirl Tour
"B - U - Girl! ... dot com!"

I have had the privilidge of being involved in two nights of the BUG tour (Beautiful Unique Girl Tour), one of those times being last night in Bluemenort... WOO HOO!!!!! (that will be my first shout out: To Bluemenort!)
Avante Records has started this tour, and it goes around to various churches with a "band of women" who teach, s
ing, and laugh together as they share God's love with girls in Jr. & Sr. High... It's amazing! There is nail painting, and hot chocolate... pizza and a chocolate fondue...You know. Everything a good time would involve! he he...

The girls I was with the last two times were:
Amanda Falk, Alexa Dirks and Meghan Pierce...

Meghan and I were all about the good times. Which mostly involved stuffing broccoli into our teeth, and taking pictures of it... Didn't you know? NOTHING tells girls about the love of Jesus, like Broccoli... mmmm...

Good times? Yes. I have been amazed at how girls are vulnerable, when you put them in their pajamas, and spread shag carpet around, and paint your nails... ah...

Anyhow. It's been really neat to be a part of it! Twice anyways. I just did registration and merch... however - I love counting money! YAY!!!!!! And selling things. Good times. Good times. I'd like to send a little "shout out" to my peeps (mandy, alexa and meg) and say - I LOVE YOU GIRLS!!!!!!!!!! Seriously. Ummm... can I just say... "B - U - GIRL!!!!!..." but something else...? No. I cannot.

Sorry for those of you who are bored. Any excuse to put pictures of me, with broccoli in my teeth up - and I take it! So I wrote about it! MOI HA HA!!!!!!



OH! Afterthought! If you would like to check out an AMAZING album:
Check out the new David Crowder CD - "Collision".
It's fantastic. A real mix of unique sound,
and beautiful lyrics, and
melodies... sigh...

When you need a little color...  Posted by Picasa

and Gift Registries...

So, about registering...
what is the DEAL?!?!?!?

I like color... and I like new stuff... But then there is practicality, and:
"What does he have? What do I have?"
This involves THOUGHT!
I thought I could just walk into a pretty store and pick some pretty things that I really want... and then all would be well in the world! This is not how it is. No. But almost. I mean, despite the limitations that I thought would NOT be affecting me this evening... I am still pretty excited about the freedom that does remain...

Ah... the world is still beautiful! I think it could never STOP being beautiful... I could stop being beautiful... But the world couldn't... You know? Do you KNOW what I mean. And it's NOT beautiful because of the pretty things I could potentially have. No.

It is beautiful, because God consistently shows up in it. In subtle, or rather blatant ways... but when it stops being beautiful, it's usually because I have stopped looking... I heard this photographer from National Geographic speak at a worship conference... he was amazing. National Geographic picks him to photograph the worst places... because it doesn't matter where they send him, he always comes back with a beautiful picture! Where everyone else would find something dead, or lifeless, he finds life, and beauty... and he says: it's an attitude. If you recognize, that it doesn't matter where you go, there is something beautiful there... then you'll find it. It's your sight that is usually the problem.

So tonight is beautiful. Chicken and Rice, and then Home Outfitters...
Does it GET any better? And could I BE any more random? Think about it: from gift registeries, to BEAUTY - how to percieve it... Wow. I'm good... I mean, I'm reeeeally good...

Love. Shallom!

PS: sorry, no picture today... I became significantly less interesting immediately! oops.
