Five Thoughts for Thursday


This was the cleanest angle I could get, LOL. I really need to get to cleaning my room. My dad's been asking me for a day or two now, and truthfully I've been occupied otherwise. But his love language is definitely Acts of Service so I need to respect that and get over my laziness. I have nothing to be doing today so once I'm off of Facebook with Oscar my room is going to look beautiful.


Yesterday our lesson in Youth Group was on friendships. It really hit home for me because it's an area that I'm seriously struggling with at home, and I guess a bit in my college life as well. I really want to start trusting God with my relationships and not so much relying on myself. Because I have great judgment, but I care about people too deeply, and that bites me in the butt because people end up revealing true colours late in the game. I'm realizing I put people into such high expectations because that's how I treat my friends - and I'm setting up my relationships to fail and my heart to go unfed because I'm a) not letting God fill me and b) expecting too much.


That makes my day. I seriously wait every day for an opportunity to talk to him. The two days that we've been able to Skype have been amazing; seeing that face and that smile uplifts me in ways that I'm so blessed to be able to feel. It's honestly a tad sad how much I'm hanging on every word. I'm gaining more respect for army spouses every day. And Oscar's not even in the military.


This is what I do when I have no room to place jewelry on my bureau and I want to throw away a gift bag that I never used. I make it into a jewelry holder. I want to really get into DIY and crafting. Especially scrap-booking so I can condense my memories. (Again - I have no room for anything in my apartment. I literally have a corner to myself, though it might not seem it. I hang EVERYTHING.)


I finally saw Batman yesterday! For those of you who don't know - I LOVE Batman and I LOVEE Christian Bale. I thought the movie with kind've... slow? For those who have seen it, do you know what I mean? I feel like the whole movie was building up to the end. And it was a tad predictable, but I LOVED the ending. I thought it was a great way to end everything and ohemgee did you see how beautiful Christian's smile is? Oh, those pearly white canines get me every time.

  1. I LOVE Batman. I MUST go see it soon or I will implode. Seriously though, I went to see it on Saturday, but the theater was packed. Didn't end up going for some reason. The boyfriend and I are supposed to go today, but we will see. Don't know how much longer I can wait though!

  2. I still need to see Dark Knight before he can rise =P But I do love love love Bale.....nom nom ;)
    And I love that you counted in Italian. <3

  3. Ditto with the friendships thing. It's hard to just feel and listen to God sometimes.

    LOVED Dark Knight Rises! Plus Christian Bale is goregous. Did you see Newsies?

  4. Hi Elise; good thoughts on friendships. It’s so important to carefully choose the people we associate with because they have such an influence in our lives. We are blessed when they also have pure hearts that love the Lord so that they can encourage us to clearly see and fulfill the vision that God puts into our hearts! :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog; I would be happy for you to share my post at your youth group! :)

    Blessings and hugs new friend,

  5. Skype is seriously an amazing tool for when you can't see the people you love in real life. I've been having skype calls either with my family (when I'm away from them) or with my Angel (when I'm away from him) for's frustrating sometimes when the internet connection isn't great, but still, I'm grateful for it!
