His wonders to perform;
He plants his FOOTSTEPS in the sea,
And RIDES upon the STORM.
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill,
He TREASURES up his BRIGHT DESIGNS,
And WORKS his sovereign WILL.
Ye fearful saints, fresh COURAGE take,
The clouds ye so much dread
are big with MERCY, and shall break
In BLESSINGS on your head.
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But TRUST him for his GRACE;
Behind a frowning providence,
He hides a smiling face.
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The BUD may have a BITTER taste,
But SWEET will be the FLOWER.
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain;
God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
(In his own time, in his own way)"
*we sang this song a while back at lighthouse & the words amaze me, it is a poem that was written by William Cowper, and Jeremy Riddle put it to music...

i don't want to sound cliche, but i do have a lot to be thankful for.
in michigan fall doesn't last long enough.
"autumn fallin' from trees, the snow is up to our knees..."
(random snow-fall, while there are still leaves on the ground waiting to be raked!?)
thanksgiving came & went.
christmas music should NOT start on november first.
it makes me smile when all seven fillmore's are in the same house.
my sister had a birthday.
i do love downtown detroit.
detroit urban art makes me smile.
the weather isn't too cold, yet.
christmas lights, trees, & decorations are up.
music is still one of my favorite things.
iTunes 'genius bar' playlists are/is(?) the best invention.
apple is amazing because they replace broken iPods.
hearing my sister describe 'hippsters' makes me laugh.
i adore boots & fun-cute coats.
aaron's toe is semi-healed completely.
"HE MUST BECOME GREATER; i must become less" john three:thirty.
i am blessed with an amazing church/community that i love.
being a co-small-group leader for an amazing group of junior girls at wsm makes my heart happy.
hillsong's 'i heart the revolution: hearts as one' dvd makes me dream of doing what they do/are doing.
i wish i took pictures/edited them more often.
i still love the city of nashville. (and really would move there any day!)
i think that black friday shopping is ridiculous.
this time next year i want to be getting ready to go to south africa.
the push for 'woodside world-wide' makes me want to go to a million different places!
november flew by terribly fast...
so long n o v e m b e r.
hello d e c e m b e r.
twenty-five days until christmas :)
