au revoir for now

I'm off to Europe >__<  Tomorrow I'll take flight to a part of the world I've never been to!  I am really excited and at the same time really sad to leave my friends and family ;(  But I'll be back before I know it... ;)  With pictures too!  Love you all very much,

ps:  Have a great 4th of July :)

looking through some older pictures...

As I was clearing my camera so I can have space on it for my trip, I found these.  They're just some quirky/dorky pics I took after I finished my makeup.  I need not say more...... *grin*

one more week!

I can't even believe it!  I just can't....  Saturday next week I'll be off to Europe for the very first time in my life!  Some things I have to do before the trip....

1.)  Clean My Room
It has gotten so super messy the past few months and I just can't take it any longer!

2.)  Packing (duh!)  
I need to pack lite though....

3.)  Last Minute Shopping
Small cosmetic bottles for shampoo/conditioner, jeans/shorts, etc.

4.)  Possibly Get a New Sketchbook...?
Just for the trip;  I'd really like to sketch some things I see on the trip.  Will need to get a small one, though.

There's a 99.9% chance I won't be able to blog while I'm in Europe; 1.) because I'll be going on tons of tour and 2.) I don't own a wireless computer/awesome ipod *grin*.  So this might be my last post for two weeks!  *sniff* I know *sniff*....
In cases like these I almost wish I had a twitter account so then I could tell you guys where we're going at what time and send you pictures instantly... but I don't know.

And before I go I'll let you know that the finals went really well.  At least, I think it did.  Thank you to all who prayed for me!  I could really feel those prayers, it was amazing.

Love you guys :)  Chat with you... in a while I guess ;]

some inspiration

I've been really stressed lately.  The reason is, is that this next week is my last week of school and next week if full of huge tests that I have to pass no matter what.  So there's a lot of big things going on in that department.  Last night I need some inspiration, so I opened up my Bible and flipped through it for a while.  Here's what I got :)

Romans 5:3-5
Not only so but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

I really like this one.  To me, this verse was telling me, "It's okay, if you fail your tests, Allie.  Because you will be able to learn from your experience and with that you will have hope!  God is with you and everything that's in his plan is not a mistake, it's there for a reason!"  As soon as I read this verse I had to read it again; I felt like this verse was what I actually wanted to hear from the Bible, I wasn't really expecting to find anything so inspiring!  I felt like God was talking to me ;)  And in a way, I think he was, cause he knew I would read that verse.  He knew even before I was even born!

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

Another very inspiring verse ;)

Have to go, Darlings!  I hope these verses were just as inspiring to you as they were to me :)
