I've been really busy lately with finishing school! : )
So far I have finished: Math, (Now I can do people's taxes! )Science (shudders,) Spelling (which I asked to take), and Bible (a cool book). I just have Creative Writing left. It's a REALLY good book! It's called Jump In: A Workbook for Eager and Reluctant Writers.
(Or is it Reluctant and Eager Writers?!) Sooooooo good! I suggest you check it out. And it's for ALL age groups!

Enough with the free advertising.

I had HUGE tests in Science and Math, and I'm just glad that I'm done them. I still have my two Internet classes, and my 2 BIG exams are coming up. Next week to be exact. So please pray that I remember all the names and information. We have a time limit of 4 or 5 hours because it has lots of different sections. And I usually have to use all the time that is given to me.
It just occurred to me that we only have 3 months 'till the next school year!!!!! I mean, I knew that, but it never really sunk in. I was talking, (like I've never done that before, right?!) and I said, "I don't need to read this book for school 'till next year." But 'next year' is only 3 MONTHS away!!!!!! The days of freedom I'm so looking forward to are soon going to completely disappear!!!!!

Sorry to take up your time reading about my emotional meltdown....... Please excuse me while I go find a box of tissues...... :o)

Robert Pierre 05/10/2009
 

My mom bought a really good CD called 'Identity' by Robert Pierre. He's like 16 and REALLY good! His music is Christian contemporary. It isn't just a 'lukewarm' Christian CD, but a really amazing CD with great Christian lyrics. You should check it out! 

 
30 Hour Famine 05/06/2009
 

My youth group was participation in a 30 Hour Famine. It's where basically you don't eat for 30 hours so that you can see how it fells to not have food. We were raising money for starving kids in other countries. This was part of World Vision. I did it! And I raised $720! So that will feed 2 kids for 1 whole year! The youth group in all made about $950. I'm soooo excited!!

 
Marriage= sacred 05/04/2009
 

My Internet class was talking about how marriage is sacred. I shared something that I want to share here too.


I was talking to my friend the other day about dating and marriage. I told her not to date until she is older, and finds a good Christian man that she is positive she wants to spend her life with. And she asked me a question that made me immediately start to pray that I could answer. She asked me, " But, what if I marry a non-Christian? What if he's not that bad, and I could even lead him to the Lord. And besides, it would be considered judging him if I didn't marry him just because he wasn't a Christian. Isn't the Bible against judging?" So then I started explaining the 'do not be unequally yoked' passage in the Bible. Which she didn't understand. So I put it in plain English. This is what I said.
'Even if a non-Christian man was a great guy; kind, friendly, a man who made good decisions, his life would not be centered around the Lord. So, what else could his life be centered around? Cars? Being kind all the time? What is there in his heart that occupies the space set aside for God? Marriage is sacred, set aside for God. Created for the glory of God. So, at some point, the non-Christian guy who could be the nicest guy ever, would fall short compared to the Christian guy. Why? Because the Christian guy lifts God up, praises God, and sets God as Lord of his life.' 


So that's what I told her. I'm sure it's not a great work of literature, or even something that could be preached from a pulpit. Because all it is is a teenage girl's ramblings. But I know, that I couldn't have come up with this myself. And I am SO glad I prayed to the Lord for Him to help me. Because I couldn't have done it without Him. I couldn't have come up with the words to tell my friend that marriage is sacred, created and set aside for God.
I don't know if it even sunk in. I don't know if it will affect her life. But I know that it has made me a stronger Christian by thinking about this. I hope this helps you.
I pray that you set aside God as your King, because He deserves it.
