20 years ago Jeff Buckley gazed at the stars, gently floating on his back, singing Whole Lotta Love, as he floated further into the Mississippi River and out of this world forever. Jeff, we are eternally grateful for the music you created and for beautifully bestowing upon us your stunning voice, which has continued to live on despite your absence. You will forever live in the hearts of those who are still listening, you are the rhythm to our very soul and we will carry you with us wherever we go.
Hi friends! I wanted to ask for your prayers. Yesterday my parents announced that they are going to divorce. Apparently they have been sitting on this decision for a couple months now so it’s already decided. I honestly have no idea how to take this because I believe divorce isn’t a right thing but my parents aren’t believers so I can’t expect anything of them. But it’s hard and this is going to change so much in our family dynamics and we’re already having a hard time so yeah. Prayers are appreciated.
as our nation pauses today to remember those in the military who have given their lives for freedoms we enjoy, we pray you would have us all look to you for strength, comfort and guidance. Be with all who serve in our Armed Forces. Bless them and their families. Grant your loving protection. Let peace prevail among all the nations, O God. Especially let your mercy rest upon our land, even as we acknowledge with thanksgiving your past goodness on this country. If it is your will, preserve the lives of the men and women in uniform as they defend our citizenry. Most of all, we pray that you would turn the hearts of all – military and civilian – to your holy Word where we find the true peace for our sinful souls that surpasses all understanding. Keep us repentant of sin. Move us to know, take hold and treasure your saving grace. In the name of Jesus, our Savior and Your beloved Son, who alone gives this peace and hope for eternity, we pray.

It’s a balance, because I’m such a huge Taylor Swift fan and have been on that side of it with her for so long. If there’s anyone’s career who I’d like to have a sliver of similarity to, it would be hers. So I’m glad for the comparisons. The way she puts songwriting and her fans at the forefront, instead of letting everything else fall where it’s supposed to fall, that’s always something I’ve really respected about her. So if people see that in me, I really hope it’s what it is.
