All my life long I'll praise God,
singing songs to my God as long as I live.
Don't put your life in the hands of experts
who know nothing of life, of salvation life.
Mere humans don't have what it takes;
when they die, their projects die with them.
Instead, get help from the God of Jacob,
put your hope in God and know real blessing!
God made sky and soil,
sea and all the fish in it.
He always does what he saysÂ
he defends the wronged,
he feeds the hungry.
God frees prisonersÂ
he gives sight to the blind,
he lifts up the fallen.
God loves good people, protects strangers,
takes the side of orphans and widows,
but makes short work of the wicked.
God's in chargeÂalways.
Zion's God is God for good!
I'm so excited! I get license on July 19th! And the insurance isn't too much that I can't pay for it myself!!! Only $168.20 a month! :) I'm so happy I can't describe it! :)
Song of the post:

Than it did in the old days
So naturally, we have more natural disasters
From the strain of a fast pace
Sunday was a day of rest
Now, it’s one more day for progress
And we can’t slow down ‘cause more is best I
t’s all an endless process
Sitting on the porch drinking ice-cold cherry Coke
Where everything is black and white
Picking on a six string
Where people pass by and you call them by their first name
Watching the clouds roll by
Sometimes I can hear this old earth shouting
Through the trees as the wind blows
That’s when I climb up here on this mountain
To look through God’s window
Now I can’t fly
But I got two feet that get me high up here
Above the noise and city streets
My worries disappear
Sometimes I dream I’m driving down an old dirt road
Not even listed on a map
I pass a dad and son carrying a fishing pole
But I always wake up every time I try to turn back
- Rascal Flatts
What do you think of this song???

We're back. Suddenly I feel like I have no life.
This ECHO trip was so different than both the ones that I went on before. Although there were definitely times that it was hard to have a good attitude, God taught me so much! The interns were incredibly fun this year and they were so encouraging to me because they were so on fire for God! I am also closer to my friends, ECHO is definitely one of those places where you build friendships that will last for a lifetime. This year though, I am going to be much more diligent about keeping up with those friendships! I can't wait for Covie to see you all again, I miss you so much and luv you all! :)
Song of the post:
"You are Holy" - Michael W. Smith
- This is the only version that I could find that was even kinda close to the song we sang the entire ECHO trip. I LOVE it so much because I feel so close to God when I sing it.
