Make Haste.

"This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:
'In repentance and rest is your salvation, 
in quietness and trust is your strength, 
but you would have none of it.'"
- Isaiah 30:15

"But you must return to your God; maintain 
love and justice, and wait for your God always." 
- Hosea 12:6

"Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses. 
We will never again say 'Our gods' to what our own hands have made, 
for in You the fatherless find compassion."
- Hosea 14:3

"Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. 
It is close at hand...
'Even now,' declares the Lord, 
'return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.'
Rend your heart and not your garments. 
Return to the Lord your God,
for He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love,
and He relents form sending calamity."
- Joel 2:1, 12-13

The day of the Lord is near. 
Make haste to prepare yourself, bride of Christ. 
He is coming.

You make all things new.

I've got quite a few firsts going on in my life right now:
 - First time living with Dad's family for more than a week.  It's been great, so far.
 - First cat...

 - First re-read of Harry Potter
 - ...and first purchase of $12 online glasses

 - First intense job search of my life: Old Navy, 5 different Starbucks locations, Cold Stone Creamery, Trader's Point Creamery (an adorable little local organic place), Eagle Creek Coffee Co., several babysitting jobs, and the search continues)
 - First summer away from my home church. I miss those silly ones.

Here's to newness. Cheers. :)
