.Good works in Faithful Hearts.

I am constantly amazed by the Grace of God. By how He draws us to Himself, and how much he longs for our heart to simply choose Him, and trust Him and grow in Him. Allowing Our heart to be used by His own. It's amazing. When I let go, and place my heart and my passions and talents at His feet, what He chooses to do with them. It's always so much more than I had expected. It's always for growth and good and blessing. It's wonderful to have a maker who loves me so much, and a Father who adores His faithful children more than anything else in the Universe. I am so blessed.

The Following are verses that have been incredibly influential in my life recently:

Psalm 22:14
"I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax;
it has melted away within me."

Psalm 139 (The Message)
1-6 God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.
I'm an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I'm never out of your sight.
You know everything I'm going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you're there,
then up ahead and you're there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can't take it all in!

7-12 Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you're there!
If I go underground, you're there!
If I flew on morning's wings
to the far western horizon,
You'd find me in a minute—
you're already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
At night I'm immersed in the light!"
It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you;
night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to you.

13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I'd even lived one day.

17-22 Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
God, I'll never comprehend them!
I couldn't even begin to count them—
any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
And please, God, do away with wickedness for good!
And you murderers—out of here!—
all the men and women who belittle you, God,
infatuated with cheap god-imitations.
See how I hate those who hate you, God,
see how I loathe all this godless arrogance;
I hate it with pure, unadulterated hatred.
Your enemies are my enemies!

23-24 Investigate my life, O God,
find out everything about me;
Cross-examine and test me,
get a clear picture of what I'm about;
See for yourself whether I've done anything wrong—
then guide me on the road to eternal life.

Psalm 62
My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

.My latest Tattoos.

So, I've been wanting more tattoos since the day I got my first one. Hahahahaha. Sorry mom and dad, but I really love them, and I believe they are statements and each one a totally unique work of art. Something that is a very visually liberating process, and exclamation to the world through each piece of work. Anyways, all that to say, I got my second (as a set) of tattoos today and I LOVE THEM. I designed a set of angel wings for the back of my ankles that represents hope and protection in and over my life. I am counting down the days 'til I can go get another one. : ) LOVE TATTOOS!!!!! Jon at Out of Step Tattoo in White Salmon, WA took my designs/sketches and made them into an original tattoo piece(s) for me .

.I hate cold feet.

Random blog post, but the thing is, I hate being cold *I am cold blooded, I swear* so I am cold most of the time. I'm the girl who still has a sweatshirt on when it's 70* out...... and the worst is when my hands or feet are cold. I hate cold feet more than anything.... okay, maybe not as much as spiders, but still, a whole heck of a lot. So, to try to cure my cold Winter feet, I try to wear socks 24/7 as well as adorable slippers..... check out the last pair I bought at EXIT .
