"Oh cleanser of the mess I've made"

I'm normally not a lyric posting blogger, but this song has been on my heart since Sunday night. We are such mess makers of our life, but Christ mercy is so wonderful and awesome that he cleanse those messes for us. 
"For All You've Done"
Oh cleanser of the mess I've made
Upon the hill our places trade
Stretched on a cross Your body crushed
By human hands You formed from dust
How wonderful Your mercy is
How awesome are Your ways
I come, I come
To worship You
For all You've done
Oh cleanser of the mess I've made
Your boundless love for me portrayed
With patience for my learning curve
By holding back what I deserve
Oh cleanser of the mess I've made
With everything at Your feet laid
I watch as all my cares erode
And from my soul these words explode

I love March!

Yes, March is probably my favorite month of the year. If you know me, you know that it's partly because it's my birth month and partly because I LOVE spring weather. This March will be especially great because of my new adventures and projects. 

One of the things I'm most excited about this month is moving in with my former roommate Daleena. We now have a house in Edmond that we get to move in to at the end of March. One of the great-yet stressful things about moving in to this house is getting to paint and decorate. After looking through a number of decorating magazines and constantly checking out Pottery Barn's website I finally found a wall color for my room and the main bathroom. 

My bedroom will be this daffodil color...
Eventually I would like my new space to look similar to this one...

Lucky for you there will be a LOT of DIY projects on my blog. Starting with this lamp. 

This is just one of the many things I'm excited about during the month of March. 

Besides turning 24, (only one more year until my insurance goes down) I get to celebrate my favorite holiday, St. Patrick's day, by wearing green just about every day of the month. I get to attend Spring Sing as an alumni (finally) and I get to see Beauty and the Beast with one of my good friends. Not to mention celebrating my birthday with different friends and family every weekend. Yes, my weekends are already booked. :) 

I hope you guys have a fabulous March. Keep checking back for house and DIY projects!
