adairbird It's been raining all day here in Oklahoma... And I'm loving every minute of it. Time to listen to some Sigur Rós, and watch (500) Days of Summer! Not at the same time, though. Obviously. 14h

adairbird Hands down... My dad is the greatest man I've ever known. Yesterday, I had one of those days. I was feeling very tired and ill. This morning, I woke up to this flower he picked for me from our backyard, and my favorite tea on my nightstand. He even put it in a little vase. How cute is that? Frick, I'm a blessed girl! 20h

adairbird There are lots of people who see God’s Creation far better than I do. They also photograph it better. But it just seems that there are too many people out there who aren’t taking the time to really see what is all around them. I want them to see more. I want them to see better. I want them to see things my way. This desire springs from my wish that people would come to appreciate better the wonders of God’s Creation. If they did I can’t help but believe that it would have positive results. First, they would likely learn to appreciate nature more and would become true advocates for its protection and preservation. Second, they might very well find God’s fingerprints where they had not realized they can be found and in the process come to love God more and worship Him better. It is for these reasons I wish more people could see things my way. It is for the same two reasons I often find myself asking God to help me see more clearly. I know I have not arrived yet. I realize that I have barely touched the surface when it comes to seeing the wonders and beauty of Creation. I also acknowledge that my love for and worship of God constantly stands in need of improvement. I have a sneaky suspicion that there are lots of times God says to me “I wish you could see things my way.” That’s why I sometimes find myself singing the words of the old hymn, “Open my eyes, that I may see glimpses of truth thou hast for me.” In the end that is my ultimate wish, to see things God’s way. Is it yours? 2d

adairbird Wherever He may guide me,
No want shall turn me back.
My Shepherd is beside me,
And nothing can I lack.
His wisdom ever waking,
His sight is never dim.
He knows the way He's taking,
And I will walk with Him.

adairbird Here's Delilah! Anyway, This morning, I was reflecting on life while reading God's word. Level with me here...
Do you ever wonder what people think about you? But you tell yourself it doesn’t really matter, right? I mean, who cares what people think? We tell ourselves, “It only matters what God thinks about me,” Usually when you say something like that to yourself, you’re thinking about people who don’t treat you right, or who have an unflattering opinion of you. Some people just “don’t get” you. After all, if you let what others think of you sink in, you’ll be so busy trying to please everybody that you’ll never really know who you are. So, yes, what God thinks about you actually is the only opinion that ultimately matters. But the question is, “What does God think about you?” The answer is not as simple as you might think. We’re programmed to proclaimed “God loves me unconditionally!” and rightly so, and then we move on our merry way. But God also has other thoughts about you. He loves you just the way you are. That will never change. But He also loves you too much to let you stay that way. He doesn’t just think about the “You” you are today, but He is actively planning the “You” you’ll be in 5 years if you keep faithfully following Him. He thinks about you growing. Changing. Becoming. Being better than you are now. Stronger. More mature. That’s because He’s not finished making you yet. Not even close.

  •   herhollowway This reminds me of something I heard in a sermon many years ago that just eats at my heart. The preacher said, " God is more interested in your character than your comfort" and honestly, that scared me at first.... And then I was hit with struggle after struggle, brokenness that never felt so real. I look back and see that the biggest thing in me that changed was my heart and how I hold myself. I know I was grinded down to be made new again, and since then.... I have realized that even though through the heartaches of life, the ultimate change in Him is so worth it! 3d
  •   adairbird @herhollowway YES, girl! So so true! I always say, "There's beauty in brokenness." God doesn't want us to stay comfortable. Being sick for over 3 years... I've learned so much about myself, and Jesus. During this time, I've grown so much and God has taught me about myself. We may sometimes not understand why things happen in life... But He's always there to guide us on the right path! When we look back on those times... We're actually thankful for them. They may not have been great at the moment... But they made you the person you are today. Jesus is so worth anything we go through! You're so wise my dear. I wish people would understand this concept like you do <3 love you! 3d

adairbird You do not have to drown in despair. No matter who you are, no matter what you have done, God is waiting for you. I pray that you listen for God’s voice. If you do, your life will change, your doubt will be removed, and you will believe. I want to take a walk with you someday in paradise, where we can talk about all of these things, where we can receive communication from God, and learn the secrets of His love. 6d

adairbird He’s the one. Has it been 1,000 years? Or has it been 1 day? Time has blurred with it’s reality. I have no reason to keep track. You can take it all. Because now I have Him…
It’s like He came out of no where. I really didn’t even have a chance. He had His eye on me for a quite a while. But I was really none the wiser. You see, I was so wrapped up with “life”. So inclined to look within that I never ventured out. I had an eye for beauty, but that of the world. Till He came across my path and I saw beauty within. My heart abruptly fell in love. Who is this man? I waited for so long. Where have you been this entire time?
He was finally here. I sought out so many others. Searching for the unconditional in the conditional man. But He opened my eyes to more. An invitation to seek what I was promised to find. His desire was to see me flourish. Not to hide me and diminish my light.
He asked me to be His bride. And for my life He has committed to fight. But do you know the best part? Have I told you the greatest secret of all? You see, we’ve never met. But my heart knows Him well. He is closer than my breath. Closer than the very skin on my bones. He is coming, yet is already here. He calls out my name, yet holds me close. He lifts me higher, yet beckons me lower. His invitation to live, orders me to first die. The more that I lose, the more with Him that I gain.
He is the servant of all, yet the King of Kings. An upside down Kingdom. The world cannot comprehend. Nor can He be contained. Yet He loves me. Isn’t that wild? I am so small. Yet His thoughts toward me run endless. You see, I’ve never met Him. Yet I’m spending eternity with Him.
My Savior. My Redeemer. My Healer. My Husband. My Love. My Peace. My King. My Friend. My Confidence. My Security. My Everything… My Jesus.

adairbird Last weekend, I was reminded how much I love taking pictures. As a child, my grandma would buy me disposable cameras all the time. We would go together to get the film developed, and wait together. She's the one that got my creative juices flowing. Even though she's with Jesus now, I pray she knows how much of an impact she had on me, and how much I love/miss her. Without a doubt, I want to be a professional photographer one day. I love capturing the beauty that God created for us. It brings me indescribable peace, and joy to my heart. Dream big! 7d

adairbird I don't know if you know my friend, @cupcakesandcourt or not. But... You should because her photos are seriously the raddest. She's inspired me to step out of my flower world a little bit. Don't get me wrong, I'll forever be a flower child. Sometimes, it's exciting to be adventurous and just step out of your comfort zone. Think back to the most meaningful, amazing moments of your life. When you examine them you will find that they had you stepping out of your comfort zone. Trying something new and unfamiliar brings extra excitement and emotion to the event. These highs leave us with a greater sense of accomplishment and fulfillment that simply doing the same thing every day. When you try new things and stretch your limits you will find they aren’t where you thought they were. You are capable of so much more than you ever believed! 1w

adairbird My cousin, Jake got married to his stunning bride last night. It was such a beautiful ceremony, filled with so much love. There was over 400 people there for them. It was completely God centered. I teared up when I saw my cousin seeing his bride walk down the aisle. You could just feel God's presence there. Also, This church is the place where my parents got married 30 years ago! It was truly a wonderful, heartfelt wedding. I'm thankful I got to be a witness of something so magical. God is so good. Thankful for His love today! 2w

adairbird Tagged by my babes, @kaitiehill @simplyprettylife to share 5 random facts about myself.
1| I have a 7-Day AM/PM pill organizer. Not ashamed to be like a grandma.
2| My two favorite movies are The Sound of Music and Die Hard. I know, both are total opposites.
3| I'm a true night owl. I love staying up late and despise mornings. I could sleep all day long if I wanted to!
4| I'm constantly listening to music. Like, all the time. I really dig 60s and 70s jams. I love all genres so I love discovering new artists/bands.
5| I'm very witty and sarcastic. A lot of people don't get my type of humor. When I meet someone that does it's like... Hallelujah! That's why I probably don't have a boyfriend. I'm an quirky, silly bird.
6| (BONUS) I've never had one sip of alcohol of any kind. I'd honestly rather blow my calories on cake and cookies. Red Velvet all the way! Also, I know all of the words to Ice Ice Baby...
