Shout Out

In the last couple days I've drafted up so many blog posts ...  wanting to write but not knowing what to write about.  This has to be the most frustrating thing for me because I want to write but hit a wall everytime ...
But here's to hoping I can finish this post and actually post it
(AND it makes sense! lol)

So this post is going to be all about ... NOT me! I have so many people in my life who, whether they know it or not, impact me in huge ways.

This post is my shout out ... it's for 2 people who are beyond amazing!  I could go on and on about what they have been through or who they are ... but at this moment I just want to thank them ... Thank them for being such a huge encouragement to me.  Sarah and Fawne your blogs ... well ... I hope one day my blog can be like yours! You are truly blessed to have the gift of writting & photography skills!  I don't think I will get to the point where you two are .. writting and especially not pictures!! But I hope one day my faith can withstand the pressures and burdens of this world like you have both exampled.  It's by the grace of God that you are where you are today ... Through the good times and bad, the highs and lows you have done just this:

"I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.  Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward --  to Jesus.  I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back." Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message)

Not once has either of you said ... I know all the answers to every thing in life ... But you just ultimately trust.  THIS is why you two are such a huge part of my life ... the ways you love and care so much. Never thinking of yourself first.

Fawne, I don't know you all to well ... but from reading your blog, I feel as though I know you a little better.  But I really just wanted to tell you how encouraging your words are to me.  You have touched so many peoples hearts, especially mine.  So thank you!

You know you have a knack or ability for something when you can capture someone with just a few words ... You both have this!  I feel the emotion in your words ... I've cried and laughed with many of your posts. Thank you for being so honest and open!

Love you both
