"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." --2 Corinthians 4:16-18

  1. ahh hayley you have good taste in music. I absolutely LOVE michelle chamuel and holly henry, and the songs you put for them are winners. :D also, oceans is one of my favorite current worship songs. brave and defying gravity are two of my favorites too. and taylor swift always wins. :) I'm really enjoying "haunted" and "back to december" by her right now.

    1. Thanks! I was SOOOOO bummed when Holly Henry was eliminated! Funny story about "Oceans." First, I found it on my youth group leader's blog, and I liked it, but I sort of felt like it wasn't connecting, but then I found it on another blog, and I listened to it all the way through, and...I almost cried. It's such a beautiful and encouraging song! It was even better when God put me in the position of truly listening to it.
      "Back to December" has been one of my favorites forever. Taylor Swift wins basically every time. :)

    2. so was I!!!! I can't believe Nic Hawk beat Holly in that knockout. I thought her performance was incredible!

      Oceans is so good - and my mom literally just came in my room and recommended I listen to it hahhaha :) really really powerful.

      yeah I've just recently gotten into t-swift... idk I just started listening to her old stuff... wandering past i knew you were trouble and red haha. i love her - especially since she's calming down now, if you know what i mean. :D


Thank you for your comment! God bless you.
