Something New

Today is the fourth of July.

I'd be lying if I said the fireworks were my favorite part of the day. A much anticipated picnic was in store for me, and it was every bit (if not more) what I had hoped for. I spent a wonderful few hours with a wonderful boy that made everything absolutely perfect. We had sandwiches, pink lemonade, and a real picnic basket. God blessed us with amazing weather and a really lovely time. I wish I could do it again every day.

The fireworks were nice, however. Lizzy and Samantha joined us, which was fun. I wish I could have had my other best friend by my side, and I recall thinking "I wish Sadie were here" a few times tonight. But all in all, it was great. Everything was great. Everything is great. And God is amazing. I'm serious. Christ means more to me than the world, and my heart can't begin to convey the amazement He brings into my life. He's just...beautiful. I love my Savior.

Joel, thank you for such a great time. I sound so redundant, I'm sure, but today was just...incredible. You're God-sent, and I can't begin to describe how much I'm really enjoying spending time with you and getting to know you more and more. I'm so excited to see what God's got in store for us! I've been waiting a long time for this, and it feels like it's all just falling into place. It's all in God's hands...and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thank you.

I've got joy like a fountain in my soul.
