Better than I

I thought I did what's right
I thought I had the answers
I thought I chose the surest road
But that road brought me here

So I put up a fight
And told You how to help me
Now just when I have given up
The truth is coming clear

You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I

If this has been a test
I cannot see the reason
But maybe knowing I don't know
Is part of getting through

I try to do what's best
And faith has made it easy
To see the best thing I can do
Is put my trust in You

For You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I

I saw one cloud and thought it was the sky
I saw a bird and thought that I could follow
But it was You who taught that bird to fly
If I let You reach me
Will You teach me

For You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
I'll take what answers You supply

You know better than I

Life Update

So. You are all in for a rushed blog post. I've been busy (as you can tell because I haven't posted in almost a month). A lot has happened since I last posted:

Fountainview Graduation
Grad Clean-up
Canada Day (my first one as a CANADIAN, eh?!)
Canada Day Pops Orchestra Concert at Kelowna (which I played in)
"Camping" trip with my parents

Let me pause there. We were supposed to go camping in three different places on three different nights, and then head back to the place in the Rockies where we were going for a wedding. But a torrential downpour revolutionized our plans. After sleeping in the car the first night (the rental SUV was longer, which helped; we stuck all the gear in the two front seats and folded the back seats down, and wala! you have a bed on which three different sleeping pads get to squish beside/on top of each other, and then you get to sleep on those), we decided that any activity would be miserable in the rain. (Side note: we did eat freeze-dried food [add hot water]...including ice cream. It all actually tasted really good.) Next stop: Calgary! Real destination: the outlets! It was actually very profitable; I got all the shopping done that I would have had to do in the two weeks before I head down to ARISE. The next day we went to the Columbia Icefields, and rode and walked on the Athabasca Glacier and drank fresh, cold, crystal clear glacier water. Tastes like nothing! AMAZING!

 Big Vehicle: the brakes work backwards. You brake to go. True story.

The the Columbia Icefields (where they really start) far away. 

Like the moon...with a flag...except for the mountains and blue sky. 

 Glacier water!!

 My dad took this one (these pictures are all taken with a Sony SLT camera).

Since then, I've been busy cleaning, deaning, orchestrating, playing violin.

And that is the basic story of my life...for the past 3 1/2 weeks :)
