I want to…

Laugh everyday

Make memories everyday

Spend time in the sunshine, rain, or snow with Jesus daily, whether reading His precious word or praying

Learn new hobbies

Take up gardening and learn about herbs

Learn to speak Spanish well

Write letters to people in my life

Throw flower seeds all over Liberty’s campus and hope flowers appear come spring (shhh, it’s a secret!)

Memorize Philippians

Forgive always

See the most incredible sunrise and sunset

Go on picnics

Go on many adventures

See the ocean

Become a bone marrow donor (http://marrow.org/Home.aspx)

Be more dilligent at studying (but no, I will never give up taking study breaks…they are very neccessary!)

Notice the world around me–hurting people, beautiful sights

Let people know they are loved, whether in word or deed

Take sabbaths

Stroll in the park

Read books for fun

Songwrite, paint, dance

Become better at speaking my mind

Do archery for free time

Find something to be thankful for every day

Learn about other countries and people groups

Learn from Jesus’ example how to live bold yet humble

Remember always that it is God’s grace that drew me to Him and keeps me


10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.  12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.–Phil 3:10-14

I dearly long to be with my Lord.
