note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

{Day 12: A Wedding Song}

Well, I'm obviously not married, and will not be getting married for a while. ;)

There are so many songs I'd like to play. So get ready for a bunch of them. :P Of course, it all depends on what my husband wants and what songs God is impressing on my heart at the time, but these are some songs I really like. I couldn't pick just one. xP

This is a song that's really romantic (and clean! Gotta love clean love songs!) I love playing it on my guitar.

You and Me - Lifehouse

And then there's this. It's my life's message. My life's song. It's gotten me through all the hardest times in my life lately. I. Love. It.
I want it to be a reminder to my husband and I that no matter what happens in our life together, Christ is our light, our strength, our song.

In Christ Alone - Owl City

This song is beautiful too. But I don't know if I'll play it at my wedding. I might cry if I do.

Cinderella - Steven Curtis Chapman

I thought I could post this entry until I remembered one more song. This song has consistently remained one of my favorites. It's a beautiful reminder of how much God loves us, and how we truly are his beloved. Like the song says, "it's a mystery."

Beloved - Tenth Avenue North


  1. What wonderful songs!!! They're all SO great! I never thought of Cinderella, but it really is the perfect song for a wedding! Don't worry, I'd probably cry too ;)

  2. #1 #1 #1 #1!!!!!!!!!!!! Best song eva!

  3. I love it when songs are clean! But what I hate is when you think a song is clean and you really like it and then you look up the lyrics or something and realize that it isn't.

    Good songs!

    Here is what she said:

    Wow! These are beautiful songs. I did not know that Owl City has sung "In Christ Alone".... I'm just shocked! I guess I never realized the band had some Christian influence, as I've only heard a couple of their other songs. I'm amazed and now I need to know more about Owl City!
