so, instead of really knowing, how bout i'll tell ya a couple thoughts on my mind these days?!
first of all, this pic is afton's & my "front door." our little home here in eau claire, and i'm quite fond of this room! i took a picture of the door because i always smile when i see all of those notes from our dear friends. some of them funny, some of them the kindest, but they all bless us like crazy! because really, when else in my life am i gonna have a door where all of my friends can just leave sticky notes whenever they want? #theperksofbeingaseniorinthedorms #therearen'ttoomany (; #justkiddinglovinthatseniordormlyfe
this morning i decided that flowers shouldn't just come from boys.. so when i get more money, i think i just wanna buy all of my friends flowers! ...also, i may or may not have googled "flower shops in eau claire" because i'm itching to just walk around in one.
i am convinced there are few things better for the soul than adventuring in the woods, climbing stuff and whipping down dead trees, and crossing treacherous frozen-over streams, laughing like little children together with friends. i got to do that this weekend a little and it's been a long time since i have felt so ALIVE (:
i kind of just really want to go on a date... a datey date date! haha, doesn't that sound fun?! i think that sounds fun.
i want to leave people better than how i found them.. you know how people say that about rooms and places? well, i want to do that with people. and not in the sense of me being Jesus or a savior or anything, just in the sense that it would be my greatest joy if i could care for people well and at all times. i want to develop habits of listening well, and loving well and in personal ways, and telling them the things i always think in my head but forget to say (like, "wow, you're beautiful!" or "you're so good at that," etc.) i want friends and strangers to know their value better because of how i treat them. along with this, i have come to learn that the only way i can do that is when i remain in the Vine, Jesus, the One from Whom all of these things flow. i can't love people without or apart from Him.
God is teaching me extra lately that He is steady. and i just really like that.
it's almost valentine's day and holland day... HOLLER.
isn't this song good?! this morning i got to listen to little chief on repeat in a quiet room with coffee while i journaled. because it's tuesday, ya'll! tuesday is becoming my favorite day of the school week.
i don't think people understand how much i love being called lex or lexi and what it means to me! it seriously is my favorite thing though.. i can't say it enough!
i don't really know what else. if you live in eau-cleezy, you should stop by our room. and maybe even leave a little note?! hmm? 924 sow-tow! (:
have beautiful days! remember the LORD today.
