this is my second year attending lifelight and of course i [LOVED] it. i only went friday and saturday but each and every band was amazing. i generally stay at the "souled out" stage because its more of my perferred type of music. anyways i try to walk through the merch tents and see all the great stuff and find out about the things that are going on. there were a few booths that were pretty interesting. the first was a booth labeled as "Christ for the City International". a gentelman asked if i wanted to sign a bored or write i little note to a young girl that was living on the street. they generally tend to be prostitutes. so of course i had to do it. i decided to write a note. i think its more personable and i think that everyone needs to know that they matter, they are not forgotten. it only took me a few minutes. just think if everyone would just pass a message of love on, how much that can and will impact a life.
another booth was "clothe your neighbor as yourself". this is definately another movement that i would encourge people to join in on. it was founded by a man named james barnett. he grew up in a christian home, lived what most christians would call a normal life. but he decided to take a trip to nicaragua to help those in need, it was life changing for him. he sold all that he owned and quit his job and now lives in his van traveling and helping those in need. he said "im not asking you to take the same step i did, you dont need to be homeless to make a difference." with every shirt you buy from this movement you help to clothe the homeless.. so i ask that you take a look into it and perhaps you would be interested in getting involved. here is a link to the clothing.

also if you enjoy great works of art there is a man named eric samuel timm. he is incredible and can paint in minutes a masterpiece. i encourage everyone to check him out. each of his pieces come with a story and a purpose. http://www.nooneunderground.com/

and of course there is TWLOHA.. which i have written about a couple times (im a HUGE supporter). they help people who struggle with things such as cutting and self mutilation, addictions ect. please get involved. you never know who you could be impacting by simply wear a shirt and writing love on your arms. it lets the hurting know they are not alone..

Oh Me Oh My

Life, its been quite the journey. As much as I've wanted to get back at this again, I have also been avoiding it. There has just been so much that has happened from my time in North Carolina until now. This is somewhat of a recap I suppose. I left NC with a lot of unwanted baggage. I say this in the most metaphorical way possible.
As most of you all know. I was married to a marine and we lived out in Camp Lejeune. It was a pretty awesome stay as far as the friends and opportunities I had.  Unfortunately it was short lived due to my ex-husband not being a very nice person and to some of the PTSD he suffered from that went untreated. Basically the relationship was toxic and abusive. So much so that I lost a lot of who I was in always being on the defensive and sticking up for myself. I'm not saying that is was all his fault. Just as in any relationship, both parties are responsible for nurturing or poisoning. So here I am almost 5 years later living my life and loving it.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
