Listening to:Sea of Love- Cat Power

good things..

Jesus, friends and whanau, music, smiles. cups of tea as big as my face and early morning or late night coffee. tight hugs, kisses on cheeks and holding hands and not wanting to let go. fun op shop finds and bargains, long singlets and even longer cardis. cozy beanies, too many scarves and huge bags. being mum to my friends, having snacks in my bag and candy in my car. roadtrips, quality conversation and sing-alongs at the top of your lungs. prayer time with friends, reading the word, discovering new things. going on adventures, new places and faces, cultures. cafes, reading for hours, marshmellows over bonfires, going to the beach. notebooks, dim lighting and vanilla. chai, polaroids and lomography, making memories. city lights, play dates, night time. the sky, words, 24 hour stores. spontaniety, catching winks, baking, that boy. advice from friends, starbucks couches, wooden jewelerry. floral prints, going to shows, ice cream in any weather. generosity, tea pots, new magazines, old books. joy, faith, hope and love is the movement.

i'll add to this over the next week or so coz it makes me happy when i do :)

we got back to hamilton at 3am (after hilarious tired talk) and i was on call for work on saturday but never got called in (hallelujah) so chilled til emilys party at barzurk :) then we went on some adventures, they were fun for awhile, but then i was sick and everyone was just talking about how they are all leaving (bain of my existence i swear)

sunday i slept lots and churched and jess got baptised! and now its back to work, went for coffee again with rosie yesterday afternoon(monday) we chilled, it was good, she took pictures

its not always simple

I love my Jesus passionately, but its not simple. when I wake up in the morning I dont necessarily jump out of bed and start praising Him. It's a fight, every day, to pray, to read the word, to be obedient. To rediscover that love every day. To say yes to the things of my creator and no to the things that aren't of Him. It's not always simple. But it's worth it.

Listening to: Over the Water- Shooting Stars.

finally now, you see, that forever begins this moment, and the same hope, has given me life, has given abundantly and these tears wash clean all the years of doubt, and painful memories, i would have waited here, forever for you, on my knees.
