Day 14- vacation I would like to take & Day 15- a person I admire

Day 14: A vacation you would like to take. 
This one is easy. I've wanted to go here for a long time. I have a dream to travel the world and photography the beauty of those places. I'm not sure why but I love mountains. I love the majestic way they stand high about the ground, kind of like a fortress. it reminds me of how mighty is our God. He is our fortress :) anyway, I've always thought this place is just down right gorgeous. I would LOVE to go to New Zealand. 


love those mountains :]

oh be still my heart

ahhhh!! one of the most beautiful places on earth for sure 

paradise 

pure bliss


seriously, is that lovely or what??

Christchurch cathedral

God outdid himself on New Zealand

I think this is kinda cool because my blogger friend,  Jordan wants to go NZ too! and she wants to work for a travel magazine and go around the world and photograph it. read about it here. I see a vacation with her in the future ;)


Day 15: A person you admire. 

This one is pretty easy. I have so much admiration and respect for Mike Donehey


An incredible man of God, husband, father, friend and lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Tenth Avenue North. His insight on faith and life is amazing and inspiring and... *insert another good word* and he is funny. really funny. I've been so encouraged by TAN's songs countless times. I'm really at a loss of words to describe Mike and Tenth Avenue North, so go listen to their cds, watch their music videos, watch the behind the songs videos (click here to watch the video behind "You are More"), read some of his quotes and follow him on twitter ;] 
I LOVE quotes are here and some wonderful thought provoking quotes: 


"You can't live for God until you learn how to live because of God. And you can't go and make good choices for God until you understand the gospel that says the choices you make don't make you who are, what Christ has done for you makes you who you are."
- Mike Donehey  



"Only when we try to love God will we see our utter inability to do so. And only when we understand that inability, will we begin to be in awe of His great love toward us."
-Mike Donehey

"Christianity was never meant to be a belief system, it’s meant to be an encounter with a person." -Mike Donehey

"Never be discontent with the life you've been dealt, be discontent with the way you're living it."
-Mike Donehey

well I woke up this morning feeling and sounding sick. I think I'm getting a cold :( nooo, I haven't been really sick all winter! :/ taking cold medicine and going to try to do knock out some serious school work!!

with love,
Samarah

  2. When I think of going to New Zealand, I immediately think of walking the hobbit's trail to Mordor!! Hehehee. But it really is so so beautiful!
    And I like how your blog is looking! I was like, what is this, whose blog is this?? Haha! I'm so used to the Narnian look ;) But I'm excited to see what exactly you're going to do with it now!

  6. New Zealand is gorgeous! Makes the U.AS. look sorta dead. :P Ohhhh well. If I live my dream and become a singer i'll get to visit all sorts of amazing places! :D I hope you can visit New Zealand one day!

    Looks like you admire Mike Donehey for the same reason I admire Jon Micah Sumrall of Kutless. I love to see musicians who don't just put out Christian music, but REALLY live for God! :D

    God bless!
