A Balloon Filled Birthday

I figured since this is a new blog to mark my new stage in life, pictures from my birthday party would be an accurate way to start. Besides, I love these photos, and the girls in them! so much! 
I originally got the idea from Sadie Robertson (from Duck Dynasty hehe) on Instagram. She posted a picture saying they'd filled balloons with Bible verses and released them, hoping the balloons would find their way to someone who needed them. And I thought it would be really fun to do the same. So we did. 
Such precious heart! <3
We each wrote down one (or two!) of our favourite passages, and squeezed them into balloons. This is a lot more difficult than one would expect. Then we took them to the park and released them!
Flash photography is such a great thing!

I summon you by name
    and bestow on you a title of honor,
    though you do not acknowledge me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
    apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
    though you have not acknowledged me,
so that from the rising of the sun
    to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
    I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form the light and create darkness,
    I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things. ~Isaiah 45:4-7~ 

  Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Phil 4:4-7~
And cameras with timers!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. ~Proverbs 3:5-6~

 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. ~Phil 4:13~

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. ~Matt 6:33~ 
22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.” ~Lamentations 3:22-24~

These girls are such a wonderful blessing to me, and such an encouragement in how to live for the Lord in everything they do! I am so thankful for our years of friendship, and crazy antics (mainly thought up by me hehe) and I look forward to many more years of the same!
