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. 

Evelyn’s 12th Birthday

Evelyn's' birthday was quite a few weeks ago, but it's never too late to post about it, I hope!
I hardly took any photos...yeah I need to work on that! But I do have memories! J

For her birthday we went shopping, had lunch, got special drinks, and that's as far as my memory will take me.

We got some Starbucks and headed over to Target (such a perfect girly thing to do, right?)  (She got a really cute outfit; a dress and boots)
Then we went to our favorite place of all...Panda Express. Yeah, it's the go to place when dad isn't around.

We joked as we were trying to figure out what to do after lunch, that we would have to go to the salon for Evelyn. She is our salon (make-up) girl. That's her thing. No Frisbee golf, no soccer, no park days, instead…shopping, beauty, etc...Yeah, that's Evelyn.  Did I mention that with her birthday or Christmas money she bought a nail polish set with brushes and fake nails! :)  I told her she is gonna end up in beauty school for sure!

Happy Birthday Evelyn!
For her birthday party we had a few girls over for a sleep-over on Friday night.  Karaoke was the highlight of the night! The next morning we all went to see the new Cinderella movie which was so much fun and it was a really cute movie…I liked it!

There are only a few pictures of her and cupcakes and they aren't that great, but I hope you enjoy them and get the picture!
