O Give Thanks

O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever.
Psalm 107:1

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and know that I haven't forgotten my blog, or any of you faithful readers.

I pray your Thanksgiving is filled with love, laughter and lots of thanks to the Lord our God for the blessings He has poured on our country.

Lots of love,
Elizabeth

Blue among Reds

I am no longer living with my parents. I'm not even in the same state as them! I traded the initials "KS" for the initials "KY".


Yep, that's right! I now live in Kentucky.

Random Fact: I live right near the Kentucky/Ohio border, which means there's a lot of Cincinnati Reds happening up here, which also means that since I am a Kansas City Royals fan, I stand out a little. XD Totally fine with me!

I got a job at the Creation Museum, and am now living with two other young ladies, who also work there. 

It's definitely cooler up here, closer to the mountains. But only by a little. 

We traveled up on Saturday, July 22nd. Just mom, Dad, Jubilee, Samuel, Caleb and myself. After about 12 hours of driving, we arrived at around 8:45 in the evening, unloaded the 15 passenger van, and went off to eat at a local McDonald's.

Sunday. We visited the church that my new roomies attend, and then we drove around to different locations, just so I could get familiar with my surroundings.

Then we had dinner at Culver's :P

Monday. We visited the Creation Museum. The younger ones either couldn't remember it, or had never even been.

Caleb rather enjoyed the goats at the petting zoo.



I was so excited to see my friend, Sarah! She was one of the attendees of the last CAPTURE Kansas workshop. <3

Tuesday. I stayed home most of the day, but I did venture out after lunch, to go find the tea place that I'd found online. "Yesterday's Tea Cafe and Matcha Bar" is fanTEAstic!

Pretty much finished up my room.


Wicket is adorable!


And Widdle is hilarious.

Most entertaining!

Watching Rogue One with my roomies.

Wednesday. Well, right now I am sitting in the nearest Chick-fil-A, sipping my root beer, enjoying the instrumental worship music, and typing this post. ;) Chick-fil-A is the best!

I start my training for the job on the 31st, and boy am I nervous! I'm sure It'll be fine, though. For now, though, I will be working from CFA or home, on graphic design stuff for Cafe Barnabas. I am really quite enjoying it thus far, despite the fact that I can't just hop in the car and drive over to my parent's house. 

I am looking forward to seeing what God does in my life, here in Kentucky - 600 miles from home.

Music Spotlight - Wonder

Music is important in my life. I can't imagine my life without it. It's such a part of who I am, and I wanted to start sharing some more of my favorites with you all.

Wonder is one of those that I wasn't sure about before I started listening, and now I have to listen OVER AND OVER.

This one definitely gives me the chills!

Wonder by Hillsong United
Have you ever seen the wonder
In the glimmer of first sight
As the eyes begin to open
And the blindness meets the light
If you have so say

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living colour
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

Have you ever seen the wonder
In the air of second life
Having come out of the waters
With the old one left behind
If you have so say

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living colour
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

I see the world in grace
I see the world in gospel
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light
I’m walking in the wonder
You’re the wonder in the wild
Turning wilderness to wonder
If You have so say
I see the world in love
I see the world in freedom
I see the Jesus way
You’re the wonder in the wild


I see the world Your way
And I’m not afraid to follow
I see the world Your way
And I’m not ashamed to say so
I see the Jesus way
And I’m walking in the light

"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;" -Psalm 98:4
