"This is you, Lord
I feel you.
I may find familiarity in the shade,
But your beauty still lingers through.
You come again,
Faithful and finite.
And I breathe you in.
I take you in.
I feel alive."

{sunshine} Yesterday, the weather was beyond beautiful. It was one of those days where with every breath you took, you felt a little bit stronger and saw the world with eyes that were a little more clear. I love these days. I especially love them because they present me with the opportunity to see God in places where I've never searched for him before. As I took a moment to quiet down and appreciate this amazing day, I felt nothing but beauty -- overpowering and enticing beauty. It was simply beautiful.

Taking full advantage of the nearly 80 degree weather (geez!), my girlfriends and I decided to go to the carnival that was headlining in town. Despite the outrageous prices and the eclectic variety of attenders, we managed to have a truly great time. It's moments like these,  the ones that make you feel alive, that push you to realize that not everything has a purpose. Some things are just meant to be fun, and that's just fine. We could all use more of those days, you know? They allow us to never have to apologize for enjoying life. Because that's allowed and its just beautiful.
