<3 Journey: Single? Here Are Some Awesome Video Tips.

The title of this blogsite is Agenda: Love. Love God. Love Others. Part of loving others is being with a person for the rest of your earthly life. I don’t know what that looks like, obviously, but I think it is fitting to write a blog at least once a month regarding this kind of love. I know that I have yet to have a relationship that is healthy, and godly. Would you mind journeying along with me during this learning process? Studying what a godly, healthy relationship looks like? Asking tough questions, getting healing from past junk?

I’ll be calling these relationship blogs: The Love Journey Series (<3 Journey Series)

I’m definitely no expert on relationships… Just a woman trying to figure out what a healthy, godly relationship looks like.Your input,and comments would be greatly appreciated.

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength” Prov. 17:22.

I dunno about you, but I love to laugh ,especially when it comes to things dealing with relationships.

Now I hope that you don’t actually go ahead and take the advice from these next Youtube videos…or maybe y ou should…but I do hope that they put a smile on your face, and a giggle in your heart.

A more inspiring Love Journey blog will appear sometime this month… but for now… Enjoy =)

Aloha Monday. Musical Escape?

(I’ve been excited to post this blog since I first discovered these next musicians..It’s been a long weekend for many of us….hope these videos put a smile on your face…more ❤ Creating Awareness blogs coming later)

This past weekend one of my good friends who served around the world with me, Phillip Henry, flew into JFK. He is now leading a group of 47 World Racers, who JUST landed in Romania.

It was great catching up with him, and hearing his heart, about what God has called him to do for the next few months. He was always one of the racers who LOVED well.

Our conversation led to another one of our passions… MUSIC… He told me about this AMAZING Hawaiian ukelele player, Jake Shimabukuro. I doubted his recommendation at first.. I mean how much can a person do with a little ukelele…right?

WRONG

Enjoy this fascinating cover of the legendary Beatles song, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps“.

Mesmorizing.

And no worries, the next generation, the cutest Japanese boy ever to live, is making sure the art of ukelele playing doesn’t die.

Passion.

And you do NOT want to miss him “singing” and playing “I’m Yours“. (almost 50,000,000 views on Youtube)

Adorableness.

Don’t you feel like going out and buying a uke? Or maybe this makes you want to drop EVERYTHING and get yourself on a flight to Hawaii….I won’t snitch. =)

Out of The Mouth Of Babes…

Come some pretty hilarious things.

Our tongues hold great power. They have the power to bring life to ourselves and others…or to bring death to ourselves and others.

“The tongue can bring death or life;
those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:21

Looks like this girl has got the life part down pact.

And talk about motivational speaking! I feel like I can defeat an entire army after this!

Oh how I love love.

Double Rainbow All The Way Across the Sky

Being out of the country for a year, you tend to fall behind on all the American trends… And living in NYC, you can feel overwhelmed with all the new gadgets, gizmos, and clothing fashions surrounding you. I’m slowly becoming integrated into the new fashions little by little like…the stu..I mean the ingenious power balance bracelet:

And of course there are the tons of Youtube viral videos that become similar to cult followings, but there are so many of them, how does a person keep up?

Well, good thing I had my World Race P-Squad alumni friends, Jon and Cinthia, come and visit me from Canada this weekend. We explored as much of Brooklyn, and Manhattan as we could in the two days we had. The bottom of my feet feel bruised! But it was so worth it.

Well, they introduced me to Double Rainbow, and at first I thought they were talking about the ice cream, because I used to scoop Double Rainbow ice cream at my 16 year old ice cream parlor job… but OH NO.. this Double Rainbow far outweighs the satisfaction the delicious cookies and cream would give me and my customers..

So this may be old to you, however it is quite new to me, and has kept me laughing and smiling for the past 20 minutes, and is a great way to end a wonderfully long weekend. So I wanted to share it with you all.

Enjoy =)

Ohh.. and p.s. double rainbow guy, this is what it means.

Fun fact: The rainbow is first mentioned in the book of Genesis Chapter 9, from the Bible. God is talking to Noah after the flood, and says : “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I’m putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth.” (Gen. 9:12-16 MSG)

Hmm.. I’d say that’s worth being in joyful, crying awe over..good job double rainbow guy. =)

I Dare You Not To Laugh…Challenge Accepted?

I know that I have put up several “heavy” blogs, that make us aware of the evil and injustice going on in our world.

But that’s not all to be found here.

There is Hope, Joy, and Love that is greater, and stronger, than the evil.

There is ultimate Justice that will be served one day.

That truth being said, I wanted to create a category (<3 To Laugh) on this site where you can go to just simply LAUGH.

I don’t know about you, but LAUGHING is my favorite (sort of like Buddy The Elf).

SO here’s the first video in the category… I couldn’t get past the second guy…I’m a weakling. =)

Take the challenge?
