I've been away for a while now...this is a bit emo....


So I am sitting here at 10:30 at night listening to Brooke Fraser's song 'Shadowfeet'. It's currently on my MySpace profile - check it out - I love this song!

I am feeling a little emo at the moment! I feel like things around me are in chaos, that things for other people are happening for everyone BUT me - I am still at home (a boomerang child at that!) AND feeling like I can not handle things anymore!
But then as I think over my life, I feel so, so blessed! I have the two most amazing and loving parents on the planet, a job I completly love, a church that is just the best, and a God who is so faithful to the dreams and desires locked in my heart! I think about the chaos around me and know that there will be a calm in the midst of the storm soon, I know there is a man out there who God has entrusted to me and who God has devoted fully to me - handpicked! And I know that when I feel I can't do it anymore - that God doesn't give me anything I can't handle!! God is so much bigger then all of this!

Thats me!

Five Faves

I'm joining the movement that is sweeping acrosss the nation called...

Friday's Five they are!

1.My all time favourite thing I do is go to IGNITION....Ignition in the past was on every Friday night, but is now alternating from Friday to Tuesday nights. I like it because I get to see young people strengthened and committed to God.

2. Molly - I love her to bits!! She's great company! She's pretty much a champ!

3. I love FB - I could spend hours on here...and I do!!! It's the social utility that connects YOU with the people around YOU! If you are not a member, you need to be...and you need to add me!!

4.I love these 2 people I couldn't live without them... they are so much fun! I couldn't do what I do without them!

5. I know this is going to sound weird, but I fully love my job... I could only find the Fundraising dinner flyer that my friend Annaliese made yesterday.

So there you go! there are my five faves of the week!

I heart Jesus - therefore I heart my church!

I just spent the last 24 hours in Brisbane looking for bridesmaid dresses for my sisters wedding in Marh next year...FUN! I got home a couple of hours ago, will upload some pics tomorrow to show you some of our adventures!

I also wanted to share with you how completly blessed I am to have an incredible church with awesome leaders! I love it! It is just the best thing ever!

I work as an RE teacher for our local high school, and have the privlige of being Jesus's hands and feet in that school to a generation of young people who don't know about Jesus at all. I had the opportunity 2 weeks ago to take a person to my church and see them impacted by God. It was amazing, the person came back this week and now wants to be in a connect group. So stoked. I am so excited for this person!

My church is great!

I had the absolute best morning today here are a few of the moments...

Here is me and Mum, first thing Saturday morning - she cooked us all breakfast in bed, so cute! Note she is still in her dressing gown BUT still looking super hot.

My very cool friend Sophie, picked me up to go over town and have some fun!

We then went to our regional airport where there is cows, and a plane flying out!

We then went to Aldi... but didn't go in!

We then trekked to Lennox Headland - to get a pic! Can you see the lighthouse???
SO, thats just a few snaps from my very nice, relaxing day!
Love you guys!

Last 24 hours, and a bit!

So the last 24hours have been amazing. It started yesterday morning at 6:15 when I got up and got ready to go to C3 Bridgeman Downs (Christian City Church) for a Pastors and Leaders day. My goodness, it was the 2nd one that I have gone to and I leave feeling refreshed and relaxed, ready to keep going in what I am doing, with my job and within youth ministry at church. I also get to spend the day with incredible people to, being surrounded by the quality of leadership within the C3 movement for one whole day is great!I LOVE these days! It would have to be one of my top 10 things to do!

I got home around 6:30 last night and Brett and Jenny Anderson, people that I personally haven't seen for 9 years came over for dinner, they had just spent the last 6 minths immersed in preparations for World Youth Day and transferring 1200 locals from Canberra and 5000 international people. It was great to catch up with them and meet there 4 children. It was a late one though, got to bed around 11... it was a big day!

I went to get my eyes tested this morning, and I NEED glasses! So I will be entering the 4 eyed club soon. I am pretty stoked, as I have wanted to be apart of this club for years and FINALLY its happening. I new fashion accessory! Yes!

I am also pretty excited for tonight...Ignition is BACK on!!! will take some pics and let you know how it goes!!

Thats my catch up for the last day or so!
