wanted to write for a while now but haven't felt super inspired. currently sitting in eau cleezy, wi, at racy's, the coffeeshop i used to spend lots of time in and that's inspiring! bein in eau claire is so normal for me. i really love it. know this town like the back of my hand, i do! just came from menom where my dear friend, becca, lives and she made me the most beautiful breakfast for lunch in her cozy lil home! like, homemade lattes and egg bake! that's what those pictures ^^ are all about. and a pic of her gallery wall, too, because she hates it but i love it and don't want her to ever get rid of it. isn't it amazing?? i think it's amazing.
i'm still not sure i have much to say, but we'll see what comes to my head, huh?
hmm. oh! i was real close to buying a snail this week! probably even two snails, 'snailexi' and 'fransnail,' for francis (:
still am plannin on it, just ran out of time on the day i was going to do it. CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE IT though... snails! they're only $2 each, guys! agh, i can't wait. but also, poor snails. haha.. if i care for those snails the way i've cared for cactuses in the past, the lil guys only have a little bit of time left. :/ i read online that you should assess if your water is coppery because snails don't like water that is too coppery, and i'm sort of like... come on.. they're snails.. they don't get to be divas about their water. wow, who knew i had so much to say about snails, huh?
bein in eau claire is so right. except holland's not here this weekend, so it quickly becomes not as great. why isn't holland here? where's holland??
amy accidentally called me becca and i told her she could call me whatever she wanted, just don't call me late for dinner, and i know it's not my joke, but wow, i cracked myself up with that one.. haha!
my dear friend, cassie spartz, is engaged to a kind & good man and i'm real thrilled for them!
in youth group at church on wednesday we had a little time of worship and wow, have you guys heard the song 'Jesus we love you,' by bethel worship? oh man. every lyric really hit me this week.
your grace remains the cornerstone
things that we thought were dead
are breathing in life again
you cause your Son to shine on darkest nights
our affection, our devotion, poured out on the feet of Jesus
what else is there than that, really.
francis. can't leave a post about things i'm thinkin about without mentioning that dear man. i'm quite smitten with him, that's all. (:
hey, tomorrow's national squirrel appreciation day, did you know that? how are you celebrating?
our hearts never stop beating our whole lives, isn't that somethin. what an honor to be counted among the living. it’s pretty amazing. & life and peace rest on my whole body because of God.. full life, not just a beating heart and functioning lungs. my body knows rest and knows peace because of Him. somethin i’ll never be able to get over.
so. in sum... snails & squirrels & francis & bein alive.. that's what's on my mind, haha!
i'll write again sooner next time, who knew i had so much gold to share (;
love you guys. rooting for you.
over & out,
