21 parts of me

On Saturday 21st January I turned the significant age of 21, so I've decided to share 21 things about myself. Some things will change with time and others will always be apart of me, however they still bring colour into the outline of who 'Daisy' is. There is also much more to me than these 21 things that I don't even know about myself yet.

1) I am a small person in height but this is so God can show His greatness through me.

2) I love photos - “A photo says, you were happy, and I wanted to catch that. A photo says, you were so important to me that I put down everything else to come watch.”
Jodi Picoult

3) I can be quite impatient unless it's with a child - God's working on it ;)

4) My boyfriend is my best friend and I love him for simply who he is.

5) I love film scores; 'The Holiday' film score will always be my first love <3

6) Waking up early is easier when there are beautiful sunrises that are full of pinks and oranges.

7) Skype chats with my brother Al are special :)

8) I am a big twilight fan!

9) I enjoy a lovely piece of cheese.

10) I like to collect things: mementos, shells..I even used to collect stamps.

11) I am learning to play the beautiful instrument that is called the piano, it makes me happy.

12) 'Shall we watch a film?' :D Drama has the power to move people; it is a passion of mine, both watching it and being involved in it.

13) I love it when God uses me to encourage the people around me with His words and pictures.

14) PINK.

15) I support the football team Arsenal but not greatly. I enjoy to go to the odd match with my boyfriend when I can afford it.

16) I've tasted travelling and I want more.

17) Hot chocolate and prayer, and wine and laughs..yes!!

18) I am a leader - house group, youth, children; wanting my teacher Jesus to lead through me.

19) Swimming for exercise, for fun and relaxation is just immense and I miss going every week.

20) I could sing and dance for King Jesus all day long if I could.

21) Hearing little people giggle makes my day.

There were 5 in the bed..

Today I was woken up by members of my family calling out my name. I asked 'yeah,why are you calling out my name?' and my mum informed me that my mum, dad and two sisters were all in my mum and dad's double bed. Hearing the sound of giggles, I got out of bed and joined my family. We chatted, laughed and cuddled. It had been a stressful week with a lot of lesson plans to write and this moment was what I really needed. I wish my cat Tigger could have been there :( Only a short time, not even an hour of my life yet it will be a memory I will treasure. It's the people that make life special so of course I made those special people tea in bed :)

I will not die an unlived life.

'I will not die an unlived life
I will not live in fear
Of falling, or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me
To make me less afraid,
More accessible
To loose my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
To live
So that which came to me as a seed
Goes to the next as a blossom
And that which came to
to me as blossom,
Goes on as fruit.'
Dawna Markovna

This is a prayer I want to tell my Heavenly Father for my life in 2012. I want to live out of His fullness in me, trust that worrying is a worthless hobby and step into all the plans He made for me. I want to learn how to love from Love and then let love gush out of me wherever I go. I want to attend the seeds planted in me, enjoy watching the petals develop and then pass something beautiful to someone else. I want to be thankful in everything because I know from my journey last year that this produces much joy. I want to not be satisfied with comfortable but unfulfilled because actually my life is a gift which I want to give back to my God out of loving surrender.
