Love Notes Project

Firstly, take a look at this blog post by a good friend of mine.

Then, consider it. And if you're interested in participating in something like this, follow her instructions and do it. :)

I'm just about to type up a love note myself. This is definitely not something I do every day. It's just that I feel it's important because I'm getting older and things are changing. While I'm not in the stage to think about relationships such as the kind mentioned in the above blog post, I'm in the process of being taught what love is. Lack of love is a huge issue for me, something I personally struggle with daily. I tend to think of love and a relationship as what a person can do for me, rather than what I can do for others. And I know that's wrong, which is why I feel God's putting up all these obstacles and hardships for me in my friendships. So that He can teach me the true meaning of love.

I'm not sure exactly why I said all that, but there it is. All I ask is for you to consider this. :)

God bless!

Two Songs

M'kay, so this song is one of my favourites by The Afters, called "Life is Beautiful." It's featured in the movie October Baby, which is about a girl who finds out she's adopted and her birth mother tried to abort her at six months, but she survived. I think this song is a good reminder that life is precious, no matter who we are, no matter where God has placed us in life. Life is beautiful and life matters. Down to the tiniest cell in a mother's womb. Because that's something living, right?

I definitely believe so.

Also, I discovered a new band. It's called Run Kid Run. I think it's amaaaazing. My new favourite band. Here's one of their songs, "One in A Million."
