The Battle Between Truth & Feelings

"The worst battle I've ever fought is between what I knew and what I felt."How true is this?  Emotions and feelings can feel so like truth.  They can be so blinding, leading us on a goose chase to get what we think (feel) we need.  They become the thing we live for and strive after.  They can lead you away from good friendships, from the truth you grew up learning, running from good and clear counsel.  It's so dangerous to chase after your feelings, believe them to be truth over everything else- over true wisdom, truth, honesty, true love and friendship, and blind you to follow after the worlds version of truth or what your heart wants.  How scary is that. 
What we know is truth...
We know as believers that God's word is the only source of truth.  It is our anchor, our truth, what we live by.  When the world feeds us lies and these half-truths fueled to feed our sinful desires, we can always turn to God's word to lead us and guide us in our lives.  
But feelin…

My b-day. :)

Ok, so for my birthday, that was forever ago, we...first went to a book store in Fallbrook that I was disappointed in (sorry Emely).  I couldn't find anything there that I wanted.  But I had been wanting to go for a while so I am glad I finally was able to go.  We had lunch after that and then went to a park to do some photography.  The next few 'hundred' pictures are of that:

Owen really got into...and this is no joke. He loved it!

Me! Evelyn has the camera now...

Some more of Evelyn :)

A pay phone!?!

 So after the park we got smoothies and headed over to Target where I got some clothes and stuff, than we went back home.  We went out to Olive Garden that night for dinner and came home and watched a movie and had cake.
Now my birthday party was a whole different story.  It was just as fun, but in different ways.
This year I had a combined sleepover with two other friends at my house.  It was a lot of fun.  We went to the mall for a scavenger hunt, which was so much fun and has lots of stories on its own.  We had pizza and soda for dinner, played Catch Phrase and Just Dance and then watched Maleficent. 
All the girls. 
Us, three girls on the right are the birthday girls!
These were the party 'thank you' gifts.  Bookmarks.
