perfect love

1 John 4:18 : “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. “

perfect love casts out fear….

i really love those 5 words. they have been running thru my head constantly for the past week.

maybe i have been wondering what really perfect love is. why do i fear things, why do i fear that i am not going to accomplish some things in my life, why do i get impatient with his timing. its so crazy how we all get caught up in the “world” and don’t really sit and think of the greatness of everything that we have and are surrounded by. but in the end im brought back to the precious reminder that God is good and faithful and will fulfill the desires in my heart because he has promised me that! yay!

can’t even wait for tomorrow. its a day full of pictures and its going to be so so so so great. be expecting a LOT of updates this next week.

my sweet sweet friend allison got married this weekend. these are pictures from allison’s bridal portraits. she is such beautiful girl. she has the most contagious smile and laughter of anyone that i know. she has been such a perfect person in my life to show me the love of christ. i am so thankful for her and her heart and what she has been in my life.

weekend 2

oh how i love knoxville. love love love knoxville. there is something about true friendships that never change even if its been a few weeks or months that you havent seen each other. i love visiting a town that i have lived in for a long time and running into people in random places. i love getting hugs from people that i saw on a regular basis and have missed so much and now dont see at all. this past weekend was AWESOME. saw old friends and an AWESOME football game. i love tennessee football no matter if we are good or bad. and i love going to games. kendal one of my roomates from college works for the football team and truely made one of my dreams come true. we got to go on the field before the game on saturday and couldn’t even believe it! i was SO excited. i tried to act all calm and cool but inside i was freaking out. i also got to spend a short time with some loves of my life. carey, andrika, landyn and lennox. oh my goodness they still have my heart. when i pulled up landyn and lennox were sitting on this haystack with all these fall/halloween decorations just smiling away. i lost it. they were so precious. i got to love on them and play with them for a little bit before the game, it made my whole weekend. that family is truely amazing.
i loved every second of this weekend and can’t wait to go back in a couple weeks. here are some pics…

it’s been a while

wow. its been a while. with a month full of work, tournaments, new friendships, ut football games and wedding showers, i have a few down moments to update this. life has been SO crazy but SO fun. i am learning to love greenville more and more and so thankful that i am back home. it has been a hard transition but so great at the same time. coming into a group of friends is always hard especially when everyone knows everyone and you are the “new girl” but these sweet precious friends that i have met in greenville have been beyond amazing to me. from parties, dinners, to bible studies, wedding showers they have made me feel so welcome. here are some of my favorite pictures of the past month. i LOVE fall because it means new seasons of amazing shows coughtheofficecough, college football and the thought of my sweet friends getting married, oh and the leaves and drive to work is pretty top notch too 🙂
