Who Reads Lamentations Anyways?

The best news ever happened this week... probably second to an engagement, wedding, or birth... however it's pretty fun!! My sister, Laura Leigh, and I are SISTER QUEENS!!! We both competed in the Miss Diamond Lakes and Miss Diamond Lakes Outstanding Teen pageants this weekend. And we won!! The competition was very stiff and I am thankful for everyone who I competed against and the wonderful judges. It is a complete honor and blessing to be a queen with my sister. What does this mean? We are both headed to state! I will be in Miss Arkansas in July and Laura Leigh will be in Miss Arkansas Outstanding Teen earlier in July!! How fun is this! Here are some pictures to commemorate our weekend :)

Guess what is coming to town!!! PASSION CONCERT!!! And Guess who got herself a ticket?! MEEE I am so super pumped!!

I want to leave you with a verse I came across in Lamentations! Like seriously, who reads Lamentations? It is actually a great book of the bible and has some great truth!

"God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks." Lamentations 3:25

Passionately waits and seeks God. Good words to live by, however, they are sometimes hard. This is how life is - we have to continually pray and seek after God's vision and his will - and after patiently seeking that it will be made known. God will take care of you and will "be good to you." So today - no matter what is going on or how confused you are or even if you don't really feel like you know what God wants - seek him, know him.

You can only hear someone whisper if you are close to them!
God whispers - so that you will draw close to Him to hear!

Be encouraged! And have a great day!
