"Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee" Augustine

Yesterday and today were put into one, not because they were boring days, but because I forgot to journal yesterday. These days were full of fishing! :) It was my first time to devote a full day and a half to catching fish.

I just got finished fishing out by the water, outside the beach house. The great thing about it is if you don't catch a thing, is still loads of fun!

Yesterday was the epitome of the word chillax. I woke up later than usual and went bed earlier than usual. I love vacations! They are splendid!

So I'm really loving this book, and as of now, I recommend it. The chapter I just finished is called "The blessedness of possesing nothing". What a title! What a chapter! 

I forgot to say, I caught two fish today! Small feat, huh. I was beaming with pride haha. Oh, and Katie caught a blue crab! We were shocked..not expecting that one! We're having a crab boil tomorrow, so we'll add that to the pile.

The last two days (including today, I guess) have been buckets of fun! The last two nights have been unbelievably, unfathomably, stary! YES!

I'm going to head off to bed. Well, we'll see what tomorrow holds! :)

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life


    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
