In 3 days I’ll be leaving for Memphis, Tennessee for my fourth missions trip. Basically, I’m really excited. This will be my third time in Tennessee. I’m going with 19 kids/leaders from my youth group. Although, I am super excited, I also have a few concerns. Mostly health related. I’ve had a really stressful past two weeks and stress can trigger a lupus flare. I’ve already been feeling the symptoms of an approaching flare. I think this week working might finally trigger it. However, I plan to make the most of this trip. God has been working in my life a ton. I am really praying I’ll be able to share all of these things with the kids on my trip. I want them to experience God the way I have; and not just on the trip, but to carry this stuff out every day of their lives. Because, lets get real, my youth group needs a lot of work. That’s something that the Holy Spirit has been convicting me of a lot. I am a part of the youth group, so really, I’m to blame. (See last post for full rant on that.) Hopefully, I’m not the only one feeling this. So this next week be praying for all of us kids; that God will work in us and through us.
I really hadn’t planned on writing about my trip today. Whoops! I had wanted to do less words and more pictures but we all know I can’t do that. I love talking. Anyhow, I’ve been wanting to share my photography more with you guys. I post them a lot on my personal Facebook, and a few on my blogs Facbook page, but not too much on here. I tend to only share the ones I really like. But I want to share these pictures with you. If you guys are interested, I might take some time every now and then to talk about a specific picture more in depth. So let me know; what do you want to see on my blog?
Now, just because, here are some things I’ve been up to as of late.
-Finishing up the New Jedi Order series that’s taking my soul along with it. I’m currently on Destiny’s Way. 3 more books left.
-Trying to develop a plot for my upcoming NaNoWriMo novel.
-Going for a lot of walks with my family.
-Fangirling over Dane Dehaan.
-Watching too much TV. (e.g. Chronicle, 500 Days Of Summer, The Wolverine, Divergent, Doctor Who.)
-Stressing about school/college.
So that’s my life.
Before I share my photography, there are some quotes I want you to keep in mind. I’ll also put the titles of each photo below them.
“I have tried to depict the true and not the ideal.”-Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
“I am not trying to be aesthetically pleasing, I’m trying to be relevant.”-Faith Ringgold.
