altogether Beautiful...

That is what my Jesus is to me. His voice is sweet, and His form is lovely. The most amazing, incomprehensible thing, though, is that I am altogether Beautiful to Him.

Name:

I am a daughter of the King. I am a friend of sinners. I am confident that nothing shall separate me from the love of God. I am seeking a heart after God's own heart. I am righteous in Jesus Christ, apart from the works of the law. I am not ashamed of the Gospel.

Welcome

I'm sitting here, with so much life in my mind, wondering what to type. God is so glorious and has ushered in 2006 with tremendous pizaz. Yes, I said pizaz :-)

My brother has been home for almost a month now, and has one full day left before heading to Athens, Georgia for Navy Supply School. He truly harassed me this evening while we were sitting on the couch. It has been so long since he was 17 I had forgotten how aggressively harassing he could be. It was great. Please pray for his safety and success as he moves away for good as an officer in the US Navy.

Matthew played a great game of basketball last night. Also very aggressive and landing his shots! I'm so glad I was there to see it.

Spent the last day of the new year having a blast. First I watched as two very young very dear friends were united in holy matrimony - Go Brandon and Rachael! Then I went with 5 friends to the Braum's outdoor Ice Skating rink accross from the Civic Center. Oh, it was So fun! I found that I MUCH prefer skating 1) when my skates are Not cutting off all circulation from my ankle down and 2) when I am holding hands with a friend. This poor tottering soul was not looking terribly proficient on the ice when Rebecca Linzey came and grabbed my hand. We made a chain and from then on skating was as charming as the winter sport is supposed to be!

Later on we all went to Sonic with half of the downtown population, and then we went to the parking garage to watch the fireworks at midnight. Needless to say, I screamed like crazy during the best parts of the explosions!! Amanda Young thanked me after for making so much noise so that she, too, could scream. Anytime, girly :-) We made our way to the Myriad Gardens where I practiced my banister-sliding skills with my tutor, Miss Linzey. We finally headed back to the TC where Becca and I went to sleep at a very reasonable 2am.

Since the purpose of this blog is actually Not to simply chronicle my life, I will say goodbye for now.

To those I know, know that I love you. To those I have not yet met, I'm sure I will like you when we do meet! Hopefully that will be soon.
May the Peace of God dwell in your hearts.

Love,
Shannon
