Hello :)

Hello lovelies :) has been forever since I last posted. 5 months! I'm so sorry it's been so long. I feel like I should let y'all know why exactly I took the break, and what's going on in my life!

When I decided to take the break, I felt like my Christian walk really wasn't that strong. I felt almost like a hypocrite. Doing these "perfect" sounding Christian posts, about how to be a "good Christian" and everything, when I myself really wasn't growing in my walk with God. I hardly ever even read my bible, and my prayer life had really grown weak. now, im not saying that now im a perfect person....far from it! i am still working hard on growing in Jesus, and He continues to point out sins in my life ever day. God has pointed out many sins in my life that I had been holding onto, that I really just needed to rid from my life. First of all, I had started to get really obsessed with non-Christian music. Now, not all non-Christian music is bad (obviously not, because i still love one direction ;D), but you really need to give yourself guidelines. Now, the last thing I want to do is give you all rules for what you can and can't listen to, but I felt like for in MY life, it wasn't best to be listening to all the secular music. So a couple months ago I decided to remove ALL secular music from my life except for one direction. I don't really necessarily feel like one direction's music is sinful, but even sometimes I can get carried away with them. So, no matter what music it is you enjoy, it isn't really necessarily "bad", unless YOU make it that way! By making them into an idol. And I'll be the first to admit that I have done that. That's why i decided I needed to remove a lot of it from my life. So, just wanted to get that out of the way, and let y'all know what was goin' on ;) so from now on, I'm going to try my hardest to make this blog an uplifting place to come to, to receive encouragement when you need it, and really just to point you to the one and only person that you really need....and that's Jesus Christ. 

Now, to catch up a little on my life (yay!), I thought I'd post some pictures to give ya a little sneak peak of my summer :)
