Your relationship to God is the single most important aspect of your life. If that is not in order, nothing else will be. If you knew that all you had in your life was a relationship with God, would you be totally satisfied? If everything else were removed from you, could you be content having nothing but your relationship with God?
-Henry Blackaby

Knowing God

You know, it's one thing to read in Scripture a truth about God, but it's another to experience that truth. It makes it so much sweeter.
"He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken."  
Psalm 62:2
"But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works." 
Psalm 73:28

God has mercifully allowed me to experience these truths recently.  It reminds me of the chorus from a new song I've heard.
More than my next breath
More than life or death
All I'm reaching for, I live my life to know You more
I leave it all behind, You're all that satisfies
To know You is to want to know You more
To Know You, Casting Crowns

"God does not merely want you to read about Him, He wants you to know Him."
Henry Blackaby

May we seek and encounter God in such ways that we come to know Him at a deeper level, and long for Him more and more.

Graduation Party

Friday we celebrated my college graduation with some friends. Even an out-of-state friend came to celebrate with us! I enjoyed spending the evening with friends and worshiping together! My sister and mom designed beautiful decorations for the party, so I wanted to share a some pictures.

The beautiful table--aren't the pinwheels cute?

Rice Krispy on a stick

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes (delicious!)

Bible Bee

My brother placed in the top 100 of the Senior division and is going to Nationals to compete in the Bible Bee! He placed last year and we were able to go as a family and had a blast. We're so excited for him!
