Live in the light.

"This is the verdict: light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainy that what he has done has been done through God." 
John 3: 19-21  

We were created by God to live and thrive in His light ; His love.
I love how God teaches us about his presence and his power through the concept of light and darkness. To me, this has been evident through the people i've spent time with the past week...how their lives are filled with TRUTH and how they have boldly stepped into the LIGHT.

BYE!! - Said farewell to the Hans...they stayed with us for a week before making the big move to Colorado Springs, CO! I love spending time with them because Karah and Caleb are some of the smartest, funniest, quirkiest kids I know and i'm always learning something from them! I also admire Auntie Jill and Uncle Daisup's wisdom and faithfulness in all things!! 
THE MOVE- Stac and Ant moved into their new home and little Lenya love has plenty of space to crawl around now! We spend the weekend moving them in and taking advantage of the fruit trees in the back - a few of which are housing my eno hammock right now! 
USC GAME - I told my dad that he is lucky I like sports...and he definitely makes the most of it by taking me to every sporting event possible! Our most recent was the USC season opener against Fresno state where we at huge Turkey dogs and sat out in that hot sun as the trojans pummeled the bulldogs. 
NEST - Anneke was in town from Chicago so 6/9 of the nesters gathered for a mini reunion! Lucky for us, Kate and Brad live right in-between LA and SD so we met up for pizza and dreamt about all living in the same city again. 
love em so much. Im thankful for these friends - they're the real deal!! 
IN & OUT - with trav! It pretty rad how things worked out...Travis and I were housemates in Uganda and now he's here in Cali to continue interning with Krochet Kids. Being the native Californian that I am, I had to introduce him to the glories of in&out (he's from PA). classic! 
SARAH! - It's been 8 months since i've seen this chick! Last time I hung out with her she was on her way to study abroad in Florence and I was weeks away from traveling to Uganda. It was pretty ideal being at the beach with her and sharing stories of our travels. She is one of the raddest chicks I know and i'm always refreshed by her creative spirit.

  1. Love keeping up with your life, Ames. It was fun catching up with you while we were down - especially enjoyed hearing about your Japanese students. And did I tell you that I relaxed in the hammock (Caleb showed me) and even more amazingly was able to get OUT of it! Ha, ha.
