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

New Adventures

My Cap
My life is awesome.

I am so grateful for the friends and family God has placed in my life, and I am really excited about this new adventure on which I am about to embark. Where do I even begin? This year is already half over, and it's been fantastic!

So here's an update on what's been happening:

Books I'm Reading:
Multiply by Francis Chan
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Music I'm Listening to:
Rend Collective
The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Edition soundtrack
Wonder by Hillsong United
Home by Chris Tomlin
All Sons & Daughters
Bethel Worship
Today is Beautiful by David Dunn
Fantastic Beasts soundtrack

Shows I'm Catching Up On:
Arrow
Flash
The Justice League (animated)
Supergirl
Downton Abbey
Once Upon a Time

Life:
I turned 21 in April, and graduated college on May 11th, with Adobe Certified Associates in Illustrator and InDesign, which was awesome. 
Now I am the Marketing Director at Cafe Barnabas... AND I'm getting ready to move to Kentucky to work for -

You guessed it.
Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum!

You all have probably been around long enough to know that this has been my dream for many, MANY years. 
So, I applied and interviewed for a Host position, and now I'm waiting for my "Faith Reference" to come through so they can make the official job offer. Until then, I am sitting in my favorite cafe, playing working on my favorite thing - graphic design.
(it's French for "Let's Go!")

I'm nervous and excited, and can't help but wonder what God has in store in the next few years.

But what a blessing it is to do what you love and love what you do. God has given me many gifts, and I'm going to use them for His glory. So here's to new adventures. Making new friends, keeping old ones, and here's to and family.
