Abandoned Blog

I didn't intentionally abandon my blog... it just sorta happen. So here's my list of excuses:

1. Ended a relaitonship
2. Bought a new house
3. Moved into new house
4. Kinda-sorta switched churches (just to sister church!)
5. Started new relationship
6. Found myself going to TWO churches every Sunday
7. Small group duties every wednesday
8. Decorating house
9. Travel travel travel
10. Work?
11. The new man is in North Africa at the moment.
11. Etc. etc. etc.

Life happend, and I love it. I have LOVED having this blog to turn to when I was at home and needed to vent, but lately thats what I've had J and God for. I turn to them with everything because...well.. J is the new man in my life who I am daily "doing life" with as Andy Stanley would say, and God is the ONLY one who will always be there for the good and the bad. I learned a long time ago that you need to talk to him just as much during the good as you do during the bad.

Anyways... I'm BACK!.... I think. We'll see! Even though I haven't blogged in over a month I check on each of yalls blogs weekly. I slightly obsess over making sure things are going okay over at Profoundly Seth ( J and I pray for yall every time I iphone the page and share with him all good/sad updates!) and I still can't get enough of all those Charming Kids, they always put a smile on my face. Both Angie and Angie have such a way with words that I could never ever stop checkin in.. even tho I wish I would take the time to comment more... And MamaKat, I don't have to switch over to her blog as much now that we're facebook friends!! :)

JUST incase you don't see me blogging and u want to bust my chops a little I am tweeting now!! Find me! I'm kay_lan816 and I tweet daily from my cell!

Can't wait to get caught back up from my accidental hiatus... so much has happend, and so many pictures need to be shared!

Love Always n Forever

Dreamy Swing

A few weeks back this gorgeous tree still had an old fashion swing on it, perfect for a random photo op. I had no clue at the time I'd come back one day and the tree (which was dead) would be half chopped down :(

Out of all the photos taken that day I loved this blurry, slightly too light picture that just looked a bit dream..... So i played with it a bit and got this b&w....

THen I played with it a more, added contrast add a tad random color....

And Then... I just simply brightened up the photograph and got this little gem which I totally love!

To each their own!! Just thought I'd share them because I had fun playing around for a few hours!!
Have a wonderful day and get out there and take some dreamy photos of your own!!
P.S. I was the girl on the swing.. rare moment where I wasn't behind the camera! JL was the photographer.

What He Sees

I don't see it.

He sees this beautiful girl. This girl who's eyes smile with rosie cheeks and love that exudes through her every word.

He sees an eloquent speaker who has a way with words, words that one day will reach so many people beyond his ability to explain.

He sees a person with an unbelievable heart for others; who shows daily a want to help others.

He sees a believer; who wants to show the world the love that Jesus Christ has to share.

He sees a listener; a girl who spends more time listening to the needs and problems of others than she does worrying about her issues.

He sees a desire to reach out to one or millions who need to be sheltered and fed and clothed, and given the chance to hear God's Word.

He sees humbleness in her walk; a decision, whether it be conscious or subcounscious, to choose to live with others and not above others.

He sees through to the inside and not just what she allows the world to see; the shaky, uncertain part of her that while still happy, it is a little bruised and looking for hope in a world that seems hopeless at times.

He sees this girl... woman.. whatever she may be, who is all these wonderful, beuatiful things created by God's hands, fearfully and wonderfully made.

I just see Me.

Twitter Bug

I've caught the twitter bug!

See... The problem with having the iphone is that you can download WAY more applications than you could possibly ever need!!

For example.. out of bordom last week I downloaded BubbleWrap. What's the purpose of it?? Oh... just to sit there and see how many bubbles you can pop in the alotted time, of course! AWESOME use of my time, don't you think??

On the other hand, I was able to download the Holy Bible for free which is truly a fantastic app to have! I'm able to get on it and search "fear", and it brings up 1 John 4:18, Luke 12:5, 1 Peter 3:14 among many others... it's pretty great!

Tweetdeck though... I love it!! Still not sure if it's a responisble choice to have it as an app available at every minute of the day! Hehe

If anyone would like to follow me my name is kay_lan816 . Quite simple to find me! I don't tweet about anything crazy like "I just woke up" "Now I'm taking a shower" "Done with shower" "What should I wear?"---- I just tweet random things going on thru the day when I think about it, or about @NPonline or @buckheadchurch or verses I've come across.

Anyways, I'll be sure to follow yall if you find me!

Hope everyone's week has been going great! I've lost track of blogging lately for various reason, but know that I'm never too far away, AND if something is ever up in yalls lives please let me know if there is ever anything I can be prayin about for yall!

All the Love I have to Share,

One Week to NorthPointONLINE

Just a friendly reminder that one week from tonight I would love for you all to head on over to at 6pm and check out Buckhead Church broadcoasting their worship services Live!!

It's going to be an ongoing thing, August 16th is the first Sunday of forever broadcasting to the world and reaching to people all over! There are groups that will be gathering in South Africa and Dubai, in small churches, and college dorm rooms to watch Buckhead services and join in worshiping.

I won't know either way whether you choose to log on next week at 6pm Eastern time and watch the service, so if you want to just do it. I won't know, your neighbor won't know, neither will your mom,dad, boyfriend or girlfriend. You're on your own to watch, no strings attached-- and I'm serious about that-- nothing to sign up for or a list to put your name on. I use to get SO embarrased when I'd go to a new church and they'd give you a visitors card to fill out... then when you least expect it you'd hear the pastor say, "And we'd like to thank our first time guests for coming today. Raise your hands please if they is your first time...(no hands go up) I see we had Kaylan Keeter visting us today?".... I always turned beet red and my voice would go scratchy! You don't have to worry about that at North Point and Buckhead, especially online!

We'll be lovin' yall all the way from Buckhead, GA! Hope some of yall tune in! If anyone does, feel free to drop me a line and lemme know what ya thought!

With all the Love I have to Give,

On this Beautiful Day..

I felt a little broken… like moving forward seemed harder.

Like fighting for others to understand was just weighing heavy on me.

I hate judgement, even though I know it’s just a part of life, I still hate it.

It hurts, it’s trying, it’s tiring, and it’s pointless to fight.

What do you do when people won’t stop fighting against you?

You keep standing up, and getting beaten and bruised a little, but you press forward.

It isn’t always easy, following what you know, and what you have faith in, but you do it.

You meaning Me.

Then at 4:44pm I got this text,
“When my life seems turned upside down & no one loves me but You, My Lord it
would be so easy to quit right there, but I know, O Lord You don’t want me

Thank you to the sender of that text. You barely no me and yet you text me encouragement ever day, just because you want to reach out to those who have walked into your life even if it be for 5 minutes like myself. Thank you.

I needed that.
A little nudge to remind me it’s all okay, even when I’m frustrated and feel like I’m taking on a
multitude of things all at once without all the answers.

Just say a little prayer for me I’ll have patience that I don’t come by naturally to deal with the people I love in the right way, and to deal with those who set out to hurt me in the right way too.

Love y’all with all I have to give
