Out of State

Tomorrow (24th) I will head across the country to visit my brother and his family in South Carolina. I'll be there until the 31st and am so looking forward to seeing them :-) Expect lots of pictures and stories when I return!

I'm what most people my age would call a "youtuber". This means I love to go to and find the most random and hilarious videos. So here are a few videos that I love to watch and hope you enjoy as well!

This one is a classic youtube video

My Soul Longs for Thee

As the deer pants for streams of water,

so my soul pants for you, O God.

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

Psalms 42:1&2

One of my favorite songs growing up in Sunday school was "As the Deer". Every week, someone was allowed to pick the closing song (I was about 7 or 8 years old). Every time I was called on, I would pick this song. And my favorite part to sing was:

"I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy Giver,
And the apple of my eye."

How awesome that even then, God was instilling a love and passion for Him. Although I was unaware of it at the time, He was able to place in me the knowledge that only He can satisfy.
