Psalm 37:3-7

Listening to: "You Alone" by David Crowder Band
(Love them, love this song. Really, it's too bad they're breaking up. :( Sigh.)

"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him."
- Psalm 37:3-7

Possibly my favorite verse of all time. I'm trying my best to do just that.

Happy Things, Round 2

Listening to: Owl City's new All Things Bright & Beautiful album!
(It just came out at midnight, and yes, I bought it right away. I am not ashamed to say that I love Adam Young. The man is brilliant. Besides, his music never fails to make me happy, and I need some happy music in my life right about now!)

I could get all introspective again today, but I'll spare you guys for now. Besides, I have enough introspectiveness going on at the moment; I think switching gears for awhile might be a good thing! So, in an attempt to have a more positive perspective...

Happy Thing #1: As mentioned above, Owl City just released a new album and I am loving it. How can you not be happy after listening to this?!

Actually, my favorite song from the album is "Honey and the Bee" (probably because Breanne Düren has a significant part...), but this one has been stuck in my head all day and makes me smile.

Happy Thing #2: These DIY candle holders. Maybe I need to get back in touch with my crafty side from elementary school and make these because I kinda want some. They don't sound too difficult to make (which would only add to the happy factor).
  • Candle holder with flat sides (any size)
  • Craft adhesive (multi-purpose for wood and glass surfaces)
  • Garden pruners
  • Dry tree or shrub branches
Step 1. Wash the candle holder with dish soap and dry well. Cut the branches down to sticks close to the height of the candle holder, it is best to cut a few at a time.

Step 2.
Dab the glue on a stick making sure to hit the areas that will be flush to the glass. Place on the glass. You can do a few at a time and then hold until they won’t slide off before you rotate the holder.

Step 3.
Repeat until all of the glass has been covered. As always, if using a candle holder do not leave these unattended! Isn’t the end result just magnificent?(via Fossil)
Happy Thing #3: The Dear Girls Above Me Twitter/website. Stupid people are so entertaining.

Happy Thing #4: This "left brain-right brain" ad by Mercedes-Benz. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I'm a psych major, but I find this to be awesome.

Happy Thing #5:
The Best Obnoxious Responses to Misspellings on Facebook. I know, I know--I would like something like this. Sometimes, I wish I could be enough of a jerk to say these things...
