Happiness on a Friday

  • One of my dear friends, Kori, gave me a CD for Christmas called Freedom. This CD was produced by the International Justice Mission and proceeds support IJM's fight against modern day slavery. To sum it up, this CD is absolutely AMAZING. Everyone from Natalie Grant, Sanctus Real,  TobyMac, Tenth Avenue North, MercyMe,  and Jars of Clay are on the CD! There are so many encouraging songs and they speak to the soul. My favorite has to be "Arise" by Third Day.

This song is now officially my anthem. :)

I sit alone and think about the world and all the people without freedom
Without justice
And then I wonder if there’s any more that I can do to help the broken
To help the hopeless
And Lord you know I can’t do this without you
God I need you now
Help me to make a move
Arise oh God, life up your hand
Bring freedom and forgiveness
Arise oh God, help us to stand
For mercy and for justice

  • On to something way less important, but nonetheless exciting. I have been back on SparkPeople for 10 days, and I have lost 4 pounds!!! I've been following my nutrition and fitness plan and am feeling great. Besides the fact that my pants are fitting amazing, I have more energy and I just feel better. YAY! 
  •  Is it just me, or is Ryan Gosling one of the best in Hollywood? From The Notebook to Fracture to Murder by Numbers, I just admire his acting style and the way he carries himself. Not to mention he's seriously funny (and handsome). I saw this clip of him  on Jimmy Kimmel and couldn't help but share it. I can't wait to see Blue Valentine! :)

Happy Friday lovelies! Enjoy yourselves this weekend!
