Well, there's a first time for everything!

I woke up this morning thinking it was just a normal Saturday morning. Apparently I was wrong. But, I'm just going to let this video tell the story of today's crazy adventure.

I know it's so crazy and I can hardly believe that I did it! It's definitely taking some getting-used-to but, I love it! It's a fun change and I feel like a new person!

You Should Know Better

This is a great song. My Andy Grammer station has suddenly jumped to the position of "most listened to" on Pandora and it's sorta freaking me out because my Brandon Flowers/Brendan James station has held that position for quite a long time. I'm having somewhat of an identity crisis. But, I'll get over it. Anyways, listen to this song because it's great.
"You should know better than that
And before you go on breaking my heart and I fall even deeper in love 
And my lungs screaming out
"can you hear me?!"
You should know better than that 
And here we are, here we are, ohhh
Here we are, here we are again

Some forgive just to forget
I've not forgotten yet
I still believe in you
But there's a crack in our cement
This time it's permanent, permanent"
--Andy Grammer

We Bought a Zoo

"All you need is twenty seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come out of it." 
--Matt Damon, We Bought a Zoo

To all of you who haven't seen this amazing movie yet, I strongly encourage you to. I absolutely loved it! It instantly took first place on my 'favorite movie list' and I dreamt about it all night last night. It is seriously incredible. Please go see it.

The soundtrack is also pretty great! You can listen to it here. Please do.

Behold, God is my salvation!

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he has also become my salvation.
Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
And in that day shall ye say: Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 
Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things; this is known in all the earth. 
Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion; for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee."

I came across this short chapter while reading during my Book of Mormon class today and wanted to share it. The writings of Isaiah (quoted by Nephi in this case) are not only true and powerful, but they are so beautiful! They are definitely worth their difficulty of reading. I can truly feel Isaiah's testimony of the Savior while reading them.
