.I love horsies.


This was a springy horse I found at a park near Tyler's house. I used to be more than a little bit obsessed with horses, and this totally took me back to my childhood memory bank. I had to get on that thing and spring the crap out of it. Tyler just stood there and laughed at me because I made him take pictures of me on my awesome yellow pony. :) hahahahaha. GOOD TIMES!!!!

.thoughts about life.

Sometimes I wonder why I am so truly blessed in life... and I never wonder for too long because God's hand always comes up on and through my life. Woven into my core, wrapped around and intertwined through my heart. It's so cool to see the way God wires us all so differently and to see how much he loves us. I love the worship song, How He Loves, by John Mark Mcmillan. The lyrics are amazing, so sweet and so true:

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.

We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…

Chorus 2:
He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.

Well, I thought about You the day Stephen died,
And You met me between my breaking.
I know that I still love You, God, despite the agony.
...They want to tell me You're cruel,
But if Stephen could sing, he'd say it's not true, cause...

Cause He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us.
Whoa! how He loves us.
Whoa! how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.
