God—you’re my God! I can’t get enough of you! I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God, traveling across dry and weary deserts. So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open, drinking in your strength and glory. In your generous love I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains. I bless you every time I take a breath; ...

Day 2: Your First Love
Aladdin. No joke, I seriously thought I was going to marry a cartoon character. I had it all planned out.
Possibly the grossest sound ever. Please God, just make him well, he’s got so much on at the moment…
Day 1. Introduce yourself
Clare Elizabeth Gageler. Just wrote O’Neil by accident. Still getting used to my new last name. Jesus follower, Zac lover, youth pastor, love leadership, design, roller coasters, aeroplanes and the places they take me, creativity, baking and good print marketing.
This is a direct quote from the lady in the accounts office who gives me petty cash every week: Oh, thank you for that paperwork. Now, I heard from someone that you were pregnant? NOPE! Better not be! Yes, that’s what I thought. I mean, you only just got married so I thought you wouldn’t be pregnant already. It’s too soon for all that. WTH? Who is telling the petty...

Your word is "home"
Your word is "home"
Last week in teaching team meeting they told us about a new message structure some people had been trying out that Andy Stanley had written in his book. I was annoyed because I’d come up with something insanely similar a couple of months before and now I just felt like I was a copy-cat. Yesterday I re-blogged a post about staying soft.

Today is the first tuesday in ages, like MONTHS or even YEARS I haven’t checked my ANZ status over-and-over again, hoping to see that I’ve been paid, to see where money needs to go on debts or into other people’s accounts and how much money will be there at the end of Tuesday, waiting for another 2 weeks for the cycle to start all over again. I’m so thankful to God for...
Boys think you’re lovely, boys think you’re something wonderful, boys think you are the prettiest thing out, boys get astounded by your capacity to love other people and be selfless. Boys sometimes can’t believe that you, such an amazing person, are talking to them, or going out with them, or loving them, or just chatting to them on facebook chat. I know you might not think of...
if i could do anything right now
I’d be in paris, walking around in an anthropologie dress I’ve had my eye on. Taking photos that are dreamy and non-cliche and eating a croissant. I’d also be in NYC, walking my dog and meeting up with my friends from church to go out for cocktails I’d also be in Atlanta meeting with Andy Stanley and finding out if I really do have what it takes to do ministry or if...
You were an idiot, but at least your memory give couples in the world so much peer pressure to celebrate their loved ones that some of them end up doing it on other days too. Bravo. Your life wasn’t wasted.
