so, i am in need of a major update but there is just so much to say so i will stick to the basics.

i just got back from my ACTS retreat. about thirty people flew up from san antonio to help us out with it and it was so amazing! i seriously love the texas people so much and i miss them a lot. they showed me such love and i am so blessed by them! one of the people there really affirmed me a lot. he always expressed (and freely) how much he saw Jesus in me and how much he loved me. it was such a blessing because as it would turn out, it would be exactly what i needed to hear. (but more on that later.)

he introduced me for my talk and he said how honored he was to be indroducing me and how much i had touched his heart and how even though he didn't get to talk to me that often, how i always said that right thing whenever we did. he also said he saw me as a person who was passionately in love with Jesus. hearing all those things coming from him meant so much.

he wanted me to hear this song called sweet illumination, so he played it for me. it was so beautiful! he said it reminded him of me everytime he heard it because he thought of me he just saw a glow and because i am sweet. i wish he knew how much that meant to me because i have never had a song before, especially one so beautiful and about Jesus too! i decided to paste in the lyrics but for the whole effect, you would have to hear the song.

one thing, one thing
this is what i desire, this is what i desire
sweet illumination, sweet illumination
that i may gaze upon His face
o, to know this man

sweet illumination, sweet illumination
to glory in the presence of the King
behold the sweet essence of this one thing
that i may know the Spring within me
as it rises the Spring, so sweet

Current Mood: awakeawake
Current Music: sweet illumination

Hey SP!
You really are a wonderful person even if not everybody recognizes that. I love you a whole lot, but I'll be honest. I don't really love Jose.
