.He will show Himself.

"A girl who prays
is a girl standing
with her hands open to the world.

She knows that
God will show Himself

in the nature which surrounds her,
in the people she meets,
in the situations she runs into.

She trusts that the world holds God's secret within it."

and about asl...i am currently learning. i feel like the more i learn the more i feel like i dont know anything! but it is a lot of fun to learn!

haha, yeah, i can't even stand the embarassment of telling you some of my old email/screennames (back when people makes me feel really old). anyways, i like to pretend like those never happened. so yeah thanks for the email address!!


Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
