"I declare that I will live as a healer. I’m sensitive to the needs of those around me. I will lift the fallen, Restore the broken, and encourage the discouraged. I am full of compassion and kindness. I won’t just look for a miracle I will become someone’s miracle by showing God’s love and mercy everywhere I go. This is my declaration."

I can’t wait to take pictures of Luke with our babies.

I need two of me. 

Being in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go.

I asked this guy I was photographing yesterday how many babies he held before his was born (the newborn I was also taking photos of) and his reply was “yeah, lots. my nieces and nephews were all really close to me in age so I grew up with them” 

I’m just now realizing how irrelevant that was and imagining the hilarity of its possibility. 

Pillow talk for us=talking about Jesus and the Holy Spirit until 3 am every morning

today the boy I nannied for called me just to talk. 

I was asking him questions about his friend’s new brother-
me: what’s Noah’s brother’s name?
Austin: Haylie….I miss you

  • me:

    Where did you get your inspiration for your hair today, Vincey?

  • Vince:

    well………..I ate a marshmallow in class today!

God is my rock and my ever-present foundation. He is the voice calling out to me to come home when I stray and He is the shoulder for my head to rest upon whenever needed. I have a good family, really big and sometimes crazy, but so so good nonetheless. I treasure our time together. I'm young and I have a lot of good things in my plan that I am so excited for. I have a few of the best friends imaginable and a caring boy whom I wouldn't trade for anyone else. God is good to me, so I try my best to be the best servant for him possible. My healer, my comforter, my strength, my hope, my first love- He will never leave nor forsake me.
