Music of the Week #1

Hey y'all!!!  :)

I am a big music person. Most of the day, I have earbuds in. Music is my life and I don't know what I would do without it. Music has gotten me through some tough times so I will always be grateful there is music in the world.

Ok, Lia get to the point now!

Anyway I am posting five songs per week that I like. This will be any genre, though rap and screamo and other weird music I will not be posting.

Here goes!

Raelynn- Diamonds.
This song is Just. So. Amazing!!! (how many of these will begin with that phrase???)
Raelynn has an awesome voice and this song is so beautiful and I could go on but I don't want to spoil anything.

Diamond Rio- One More Day
This song actually made me cry the first time I heard it.
It's so beautiful. I just can't even find words perfect enough to describe it.

Hunter Hayes- Wanted
Those who know me know that I am obsessed with Hunter Hayes. This was the first song I ever heard from him and I have loved him ever since. This song has helped me a lot during some tough times and I will be forever grateful to Hunter for writing this.

Taylor Swift- All Too Well
Taylor Swift has also gotten me through tough times. She writes her songs like she actually knows what her fans are going through. I can relate to most of her songs.

Parachute- Forever and Always
This song made me cry too. It..... Actually just listen to it and you'll know what I mean.

Those are my five songs! I hope you enjoy these :)


Quotes #1

I am finding a lot of quotes on Pinterest so I will post some of them periodically. I am a really big quote fan so expect a lot of these posts.

Also I am not sure who the author is on some of these so I you want to know just ask and I'll try to find out for you. :)

Fog on her glasses
From the still steaming tea
A book in her hand
As she casually reads.
A catch in her breath
As the climax grows near
She's deaf to the world:
The book's all she can hear
She's completely lost now,
Or perhaps she is found
In this strange paper world
That's far from the ground.

I love you just the way you are
but you don't see you like I do.
You shouldn't try so hard to be perfect.
Trust me, perfect should try to be you.

I will not be another flower,
picked for my beauty
and left to die.
I will be wild,
difficult to find,
and impossible to forget.

Roses aren't always red
& violets aren't exactly blue,
the society that we live in
never seems to speak the truth.

Smiles aren't always happy
& frowns aren't always upset,
people judge too quickly
& our feelings are what they

One day, you're 17 and you're planning for
someday. And then quietly, without you ever
really noticing, someday is today. And then
someday is yesterday. And this is your life.

You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem, smarter
than you think, and loved more
than you know.

Make your parents proud, your enemies jealous, and yourself happy.

I want to be the reason you look down at your phone and smile.....

Then walk into a pole.

Pray, Wait, Trust.

It's hard to act cool in front of you
because whenever I see you,
my brain is like,
"This person is good looking,
say something stupid."
and I'm like, "Awesome idea brain."
And then I say something stupid
because I'm an idiot.

I plan on bugging you
every single day
for the forseeable future

Love your parents
We are so busy
growing up,
we often forget
they are also
growing old.

Ok so yeah, I should probably stop now.
Stay tuned for more of these in the future!


St. Cecilia Patroness of Musicians

Hey y'all!!

Today is the feast day of St. Cecilia. She is one of my patron saints so I thought I would make a post about her.

St. Cecilia lived in the early days of the church. On her wedding night, she was praying to her guardian angel and her husband, Valerian, came into the room and saw her angel.

He wanted to know who the angel was so Cecilia told him to go see the pope. Valerian and his brother were received into the Church and were martyred shortly after.

Cecilia was ordered to give up her faith and she refused.

She was imprisoned in her bathhouse which was heated to a very high temperature.

Cecilia was left in the bathhouse for three days. She remained unhurt.

The judge ordered her to be beheaded. The executioner struck her three times and her head was partially severed from her body. She lay on ground for three days and expired on the third day.

St. Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians. Its great that I'm named after her cause I sing a lot. I mean a LOT.

My family has to continually tell me to be quiet cause I keep singing.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I'll answer as soon as possible!



Just Wanted To Share This With You Guys.

I found this poem on Pinterest and I like it so much I thought I would share it.

Don't cry because he told you,
That his love has slipped away,
Because I once knew a boy,
Who watched the sun rise every day,
One morning I sat with him,
Wrapped entirely in my awe,
But he said he'd viewed so many,
Six a.m. was all he saw,
And you're a brilliant sunrise,
With your darkness-breaking light,
But I know he's forgotten,
Life without you is just night,
He cannot see your beauty,
Since he's taken it for granted,
But that doesn't mean it's failed,
To leave the rest of us enchanted,
You deserve the love of someone,
Who'll watch you rise over again,
And may they never come to see you,
As another six a.m.



All Saints Day

Hey guys!

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. I've been a bit busy(aka homework, joy)

Anyway I had some free time on my hands and decided to make a post.

November 1st was All Saints Day. It is a holy day of obligation. A holy day of obligation means you are required to go to church that day. It's like a Sunday during the week.

Our church had its All Saints Day party on November 6th. All of the kids in the parish dress up as a saint and our priest and the adults have to guess who they are.

Basically, all the kids in our parish look through saint books and try to find the most obscure saints no one has ever heard of. It worked too. Our priest had the hardest time trying to guess. It was really funny!

Me, I didn't dress up. I stopped dressing up when I turned 13. It just wasn't as fun as it used to be.

After the guessing is finished, the teenagers in our parish set up games for all the kids to come back and play. I was in charge of the St. Peter's Fishing Hole. Yes, it was as fun as it sounds. It was a blue curtain hung between two doors. The kids tossed rods with clothespins on the end of them over the curtain and the people behind the curtain clipped candy on them.

Kat and I were behind the curtain for most of the time. It was really fun. The kids would come up and say, "Is there anyone behind the curtain?" We sat there and giggled into our sleeves, trying not to laugh too hard. The kids eventually figured out we were back there and kept requesting certain candies that we didn't even have!

All of us were exhausted once the party was over. Giving candy to little kids is just soo tiring!

We had fun though.

Til next time!


Pray For Our Troops

 Today is Veteran's day. The day dedicated to all American Troops, those who have served, those who are serving and those who have fallen in service of their country. 

One of my favorite quotes about the fallen is 

Remember: Someone sacrificed their tomorrow so you could have your today. 

So, Please please pray for our troops, especially those overseas and their families. 

(Saint Adrian is the patron saint of soldiers, by the way)
