We had a blast! And I love how the scarves came out!

Thinking about these words this morning....

Come, thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of thy redeeming love.

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above. 

"...I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever. I will thank you forever, because you have done it. I will wait for your name, for it is good, in the presence of the godly." ~Psalm 52:8-9

My Thanksgiving!

I spent my THANKSGIVING in

with Wesley and his family :)

Thursday morning we helped make lots of food!

Then we took a walk, and Wes showed me around his neighborhood.

Four wheeling in Utah was so awesome! I LOVE it!!

On Friday, Wes showed me around some more.

We stopped at his high school and I got to see where he played FOOTBALL!

Saturday morning we went up the mountain to cut down a CHRISTMAS TREE!

We went around Salt Lake City on a date. Wes surprised me and took me to a DINOSAUR museum!!! We had a blast :)

I am so thankful I was able to take this trip!
I cannot wait to be home in North Carolina in 2 WEEKS!

The best background imaginable...

I found a 50+ year old BIBLE at Goodwill.....

It is PERFECT! The pages are tinted and everything!

I thought the pages make great backdrops to drawings and paintings, but I just couldn't tear out the pages of God's Word.

So, I scanned them! Some are in color so they still have that ancient look.

Here is my first try....

Since art is an expression beauty, it's so neat to have His words--the words of the CREATOR of all things beautiful--as the background.
I may never paint on blank paper again :)

Dorm Decor

It's just me tonight in my room.... I'm not gonna lie, I kinda miss my awesome ROOMMATES!!!

I have just been...diligently working on school work......and maybe talking to Wes..a little bit.... ;)
Speaking of roomies, check out Alyssa's wall!

I LOVE this idea!

I'm so glad you're in my room friend!!!
