L: Beautiful places and beautiful peoplePosted: March 27, 2012 | Author: L | Filed under: A Bunch of Random, Faith, Weekends | 1 Comment »
According to my phone, my life isn’t all that interesting but it is filled with wonderful people and pretty places. Wanna see?
His wrinkly nose is one of my favorite things and look at that cheesy smile! SERIOUSLY. How could you not love this kid?
The cemetery. Our cemetery. The one that’s just down the street. It’s one of my favorite places to go.
Isn’t it strange how you can feel so alive surrounded by so much death?
Walks with C and the youngest nephew. The pace is a little slower than usual but it’s totally worth having this little silly around.
Sunshine in my office. It’s a beautiful thing, I tell ya. Beautiful.
You know what else is beautiful? Being baptized. Publicly declaring that Jesus is Lord. The acknowledgement of Him as both Savior and King of the earth.
Also, that’s our big brother in the white shirt who is about to baptize someone for the first time. My brother loves Jesus. That is a beautiful.
And, also, the big brother has one of the best smiles. His smile is beautiful but it’s definitely creepy of me to think my brother’s smile is beautiful. But truth is truth, people. CH’YEAH.
My other favorite cemetery. I really am not creepy, I (sorta-kinda) promise. Whenever I’m at Bayside, I always feel like civil war soldiers should jump out in their blue uniforms from behind the big old maple trees. Which makes me creepy but for reasons other than loving cemeteries.
Do you see this pretty lady? Do you? DO YOU?! Well, she’s beautiful. We might both be extremely exhausted in this photograph (1am does not treat either of us wonderfully) but she’s my friend and I love her and I love this picture of us smiling through our exhaustion. How could you not love someone who is vivacious, full of Jesus’ love, and actually thinks I’m funny and likes being my friend?
In case you were wondering, that question is rhetorical and I do not want to hear your answer if it’s anything other than “I completely agree, O Young One. Completely agree”. Got it? Ok, good.

That would be the last week of my life in pictures. The undocumented things? Losing weight due to my juice fast, gaining it all back in two days, worshiping Jesus for hours, getting a serious case of the giggles, and contemplating different ideas and theologies and doctrines. Much like I said, my life isn’t that exciting but it is full. Full of beautiful people, beautiful places, and a beautiful Jesus.
