Felicity (talking to Ben): "The truth is I can't be with you like this. I mean, I know I said that I could, but I can't. I just can't compromise myself like that. I mean I'm an emotional person. I feel things and I need to be able to get upset and talk about how I'm feeling. I mean that's just...that's who I am and I can't change it. I don't want to. And the thing is you know that, you knew it and you still pursued me because you want something with me, you just aren't strong enough to have it a way makes you a coward. And the saddest part is day you're gonna wake up and you're gonna realize what you missed and it's gonna be too late."


My favorite quote from all 4 seasons of Felicity...there are lots of similarities between her and I. Perhaps that's why I can spend all day watching episodes of her drama-filled life with my roommates.

New Definition

Saw this on Post Secret this morning: fits perfectly with where I'm at in life right now.

Then whoever wrote it added this:

"That rejection letter was a difficult day. At the time, I thought it was the worst.

As it turns out, it was my best. I know it sounds cheesy, but sometimes things happen for a reason and life takes you on amazing journeys and experiences that you may not have let yourself go on had everything worked out "perfectly." That rejection letter led me to the best years of my life and experiences that defined who I really am."


I'm excited for where the Lord wants to take me next.

Use This Time

Stole this from of the best blogs I've ever seen/read.

Recently, I've been "re-given" the gift of time in this upcoming season of life...lots to think about, decisions to be made, waiting for God...and this blog gave a me a good direction on where to start. Enjoy.

Use This Time
Every Christian is a theologian; but as a single woman you have a unique opportunity to study doctrine. I don’t want you to miss it.

May I give you some motherly (or sisterly) advice?

I sit here today as a fifty-three year old wife and mother of four. My youngest son is in high school and for the first time in over thirty years, more and more of my time is “my own.” For the past three decades I have had very little discretionary time—and when my children were little, almost none at all. While I still made studying doctrine a priority, the reality is that my time was severely limited.

As a single woman you are probably very busy. You may be in school, have a job, serve in the church, maintain relationships, care for family…whew! I’m tired just thinking about your hectic life.

But whether you feel like it or not, you have a distinct advantage over the mom with small children: your time is your own. Despite the many, legitimate, demands on your life, you have great freedom to choose how you spend your time.

Please don’t waste a moment of this precious and limited season. Be a student of God’s Word. Study eagerly, study deliberately, study faithfully.

When you dedicate your time to growing in your knowledge of God, you’ll make deposits into your future life that will yield blessing upon blessing.
