Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give your the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4
When you delight yourself in the Lord, your hearts will desire the right things.
Here we go, 4 more days until my birthday. I'm enjoying my last teenage year. It has been a year of many blessings with rough times and hardships. A year with a lot of growing up to do and attempting to get away with childish humor. I've loved this year. And now my favorite holiday is coming up, 2 days after my bday. And two days prior to that, I celebrate my "oh-my-gosh-it's-been-2-months-already-courtshipversary" (that I won't be celebrating monthly after that. The first few months are always the hardest and thus, worth celebrating as a victory!). I'm excited and embracing what I get to experience in the future while a bit sad to look back on all I leave behind. Not to mention how with each day, I'm dying a little more (we all are). Talk about bittersweet. Anyways, crossing my fingers that I have Friday off, the guy who likes a girl with a smile is up to a birthday surprise celebration. This should be fun and surprising. That reminds me, I haven't really blogged about that aspect of my life. Oh well! Maybe another day (I recently found out he reads this I'm a little shy about my posts Going back to the topic of my bee-day, looking forward to all the pretty cards and gifts from parentals & friends. I'll be saying hello to Mr. Mailman!

Lord, my prayer this week is to never stop delighting in You. You are the One that gives and takes away, and I'm overwhelmed by grace that you give me another year of life. Truly, I trust You with my life, wherever it leads to.
