The Band vs. Jesus

So last night, some friends and I went to Banter to See Karyna Cruz and Zach Blach perform. At the end of Karyna’s set she cam around to talk to everyone and also to pass out bracelets, stickers, business cards, all with her name in info on it. She obviously does this so we will use these items, people will ask about it and she will get her name out there. This method easily spreads the word about her music and expands her contact with these people.

As she came around I took a couple business cards and thought to myself about who I could give these to this week. Karyna is great and clearly with the links to her website I’ve given you, I want you to be able to know who she is.

I wonder why we are so good as spreading the word about about our favorite band, but when it comes to spreading the word about Jesus (the one true God we should be worshiping), we fall short? It’s very easy for us as humans to talk about earthly things because that is what is on our minds and that is what is important to us.  But if we captured that fire, and we used it for the glory of God, think about the big things that our Lord will do.Colossians 3 says that you (we) are to “Set your minds on on things above, not on earthly things… When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory… you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” How awesome is that!?!

If we are with God daily, it will begin to show in our hearts, minds, words, and actions. This is defiantly something I am working on and I challenge you to take His word to heart and do this as well. Please pray for me as I work on loving the Lord with all my heart and with all my mind, especially this week.

Made my day

Today has been GREAT so far!
I got to sleep in, eat honeycomb for breakfast and my hair is nice and straight and long today! haha
In english class we peer edited our Short Story Analysis papers. At first, I was nervous about this because the girl who edited my paper 1st is from UT and she is really intellegent, buthe gave me a great review! She wrote that my paper was “exellent”! Yeah buddy! haha. Her positive comments and helpful suggestions made me feel great 🙂
On the way home from Decatur I turned up my mix cd from Trevor LOUD and sang at the top of my lungs all the way home; and when that wasn’t long enough, I went to sonic to get a smoothie just so I could finish the cd. hehe. I am in such I great mood!
Also I’m about to start a quick painting for my best friend Maisie’s Birthday tomorrow! It is going to look so cute!!! I’ll post a picture after I have givien it to her so I don’t spoil the surprise of what it is 🙂 Basically though. it’s going to come straight from my skectchbook. That’s why I called it “quick” I guess.
Also SUPER excited for tomorrow! After I get out of class I’m going to get all pertied up and go to Denton for a night of fun with Trevor. 1)Seeing Despicable Me. 2)Going to eat, prolly BWW. 3)Going to see Spencer’s band play at the Broiler Room. 3)Go to the square in Denton 🙂 YAY!

I love this dreamy picture

Made My Day

So this really cool singer/songwriter Karyna Cruz, who is a friend of mine, asked me to create a logo for her. At her shows I am always drawing in my sketchbook. Anyway, after lots and lots of doodles- here is the one! You should check out her website and listen to her charming music!
So because I don’t have a working scanner at home, I take my sketchbook to the receptionist at school and ask her to scan it for me so I can send the logo to Karyna. She began to ask me about my artwork and wants me to do a painting for her daughter’s room! This is perfect! I do little kid drawings all the time! Oh my goodness, I am so excited to have a purpose for them! haha. Oh AND she’s gonna PAY ME for the painting(s) WHAAAAT!?! haha.
This is pretty cool, I must say. Who knows, If I advertize this a little more, maybe I can do more paintings for kids rooms! That’s exactly the kind of stuff I’d be good at!
Anyway I am posting this because I am really happy! I’m thinking that this is going to be a great day. Hope yours is lovely as well!
