public announcement: people are my favourite.


"I'm finding the older I get, the more of a people person I'm becoming." - me to my friend, Emily
Okay, I just love people. They are simply my favourite, and I'm so happy they exist and I have the opportunity to know them. Lately I have gotten to meet new people, spend time with old friends, and connect with people I don't even know. I am wild about all these people, and I just want to keep them and love on them forever.

Guys, it is just so amazing how God works, and how He brings the right people together at just the right time through the strangest of ways. He is so good to us, and we don't even know. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Honestly, He just blows me away with His unfathomable grace, and the intricate way with which He orchestrates our lives.

Like I said above... me and people, we've got a thing. Sometimes I wonder if my growing love for people is for a reason. I'm really not exaggerating here, guys. When I'm in a room full of people, I am practically giddy and want to talk to and hug every single one of them. I crave deep conversation and rich relationships. I wonder what God is thinking and what He's got in mind for the rest of my life. Or maybe He just loves His children and He wants me to love them, too. :) I am totally fine with this.

So. Jesus is unbelievably awesome, and the magnificent people He puts in my life are just an added bonus.

*yup, that is indeed the loverly Jenn you see in those pictures (and someone else you'll hear about in another post...). through a wild turn of events, she got to return for a four-day visit! And we recorded a song together. kaboom. you should go check it

  2. This makes me super duper happy! People are indeed lovely and each one is a blessing. The more people we know and love, the more blessed we are I believe :-)

  3. You DO love people. And you make me feel so crazy loved, Petie-girl... Your warmth, exuberance, and downright insanity have all been redeemed by God and put to use for HIs service and the results are so beautiful! I know He is using you to bless your (very fortunate) friends, starting with myself, and I can't wait to see what He'll do with you for His kingdom in the future!
    YOU ARE SO CRAZY AND I JUST LOVE YOU OKAY.

    1. Isn't it, though?? :) My friend Jenn from Ohio was staying with me, and we both kinda knew Ellie through her photography blog, social media, mutual friends, etc. So when Jenn and I realized Ellie was in Oklahoma, we pretty much stalked her until we had a date set up to get together, haha. It was so much fun getting to meet her in person! She's a gem. :)
      Miss you guys!!
