We'll miss you :(

Mr. Tore, Mrs. Debbie, Lydia, Joanna, Julia, Angela and James.....

WE WILL MISS YOU SO MUCH!

Know that you are in our prayers. We know this is God's will, but that doesn't make the pain any easier to bear. :( Lilo, I luff you! You're one of my BFFs, don't ever forget me. :( Love you all!!!

Pig roast!




Yesterday evening we had a going away party for a family in our church. The Mitchells are moving to Wisconson in a week, and we're gonna miss them soooo much! :( To show our love, we decided to do something we as a church had never done before: Roast a PIG! ^^ We named her Sally....Poor, pooooor Sally. Man was she good! lol MY aweosme Daddy and Uncle Ron cooked her ALL day yesterday! They did a fantastic job! See how crisp and yummy she looks?! ^^

Ma and Pa



My mommy and daddy :) While we've been at school for the past few days, they've been helping friends of ours paint....Just so you know, that white in their hair is PAINT not gray hair lol. I thought it was a nice pic with the beginnings of the fall colors coming out in the background. @(^.^)@

Trust In Me

video

This is the song that I wrote around the 15 or 16 of August...I gave you the lyrics a few blogs back. :) I finally figured out a title! My friend, Macky, sort've springboarded my blond brain into action! lol This music is not permenant, so don't get to used to it. :) Its still being worked on, but I wanted my family in North Carolina and Colorado to be able to hear it. :) I love and miss you guys!

I described the song in the other blog, but just so you don't have to re-look it up, I'll tell ya again. ^^..............

In the song, a girl is praying to God. (I used a girl, becuase, I am one lol) She's in the midst of great trials, and she's telling God that she can't do it anymore. But in the chorus, God is answering her and saying...

"Child, trust in me, I loved you enough to die!"

"I'll never leave you all alone, I'll always hear you cry."

"No matter what you're going thru, trust in me and you'll find;"

"At the end of life's long road,"

"The trials, they made you refined!"

No matter how deep your trial may seem, God will always be there to pick you up out of it. I've discovered this wonderful truth so many times in my life. There's nothing you can do that God can't fix. I hope you enjoy the song, please leave a comment and tell me what you think! ^^

I'm alive! ^^




Well, my ear is still conected to my head, so I'm on the road to recovery I guess! ^^ lol Its hurts pretty bad though, its very sore and tender to the touch. You know at weddings, how the groom will sometimes sweetly wisper something into his new bride's ear? Mrs. Sue told me that I'd have to make sure its my right one, lol, so I don't scream and pull back because of my "ear trauma!"! ^^ .....................


Well I thought it was funny. lol


Teen Jubilee is tonight!

Its also been one month since the end of VBS....I wish we had it more than once a year. :(

Kay I'm done for know...;)

.......oops.......





Auuuuugggghhhhh.


I had an interesting evening at the barn tonight. Chippy, (the evil pony shown above) bite my ear! I know! THE AUDACITY!
I was in his pen getting a bucket to use for the evening chores, I bent over to pick it up and out of nowhere comes Chippy! He lunges at my face and grabs my ear. I yelped and pulled away, and my ear went numb. I had no idea how bad it was hurt, only that I was mad enough to break him! So, I turn around and punch him so hard in the nose it bruised my hand. He reared up and ran away, leaving me mumbling under my breath. My ear was still numb, so as I walked away I just put my hand up to it to feel it. My hand came back, and it looked like I'd dipped it in red food coloring. Yea, not good. I ended up in the ER since it was an animal bite, and now I get to wear this lovely bandage til tomorrow. Chippy did end up biting a small peice of my ear off...but its in the back and you won't be able to see it unless I were to show you. :) To those of you who have never visited my blog before, these are AWFUL pix of me!! i do not usually look like this! lol Yep, so that was my adventure for the day...Me? I'm ok, just very thankful that I don't have to wear this to school Monday!! ^^

Show clothes

I decided to air my show clothes, since I'll be riding Beloved in a horse show in October! ^^ YAY! lol By the way, the poll I have on my page...vote and help me decide what her show name should be!! I can't decide by myself! I know some of them are sad sounding, but...I like them. :) The probelm is I like all of them, so choosing is impossible. lol Anyhoo, I love my outfit! ^^ My helemet, whos name is Tom, (Don't ask lol) and my jacket, my polo, my breeches and finally my boots! Don't ask how much they cost..it makes me dry heave and not want to wear them! ^^ Seriously. lol! Kay I'b blabbered enough for now, don't forget to vote!!!!

"I must admit, I don't understand....
Why God would let me face, this painful circumstance.
All I have to cling to, are His word and His name,
But that's enough, so I will trust...."
"Its for my good and for His glory,
This trials not the end of the story,
There's a bigger picture God alone can see.
Faith will take me thru this sorrow,
For I know He holds tomorrow.
And He assures me its for my good....
And for his Glory..."
Powerful song, huh?
I though so. :) I first heard that song when a trio from a college in OK came up to sing it for us. Since then, I'm claimed it as one of my many theme songs. ^^ This is one I listen to when the trials of my teenage girl's life are to much to bear anymore. lol Seriously though, it has made me feel better multiple times since June when they introduced it to me. No matter the trial, whether its like the big one we overcame earlier, or small ones at school, God will always be there gently reminding, "Its for your good, and for My glory."

9/11


Today, its officially been 7 years since our Country was attacked.
Wow.
Think of all the families that are greiving today still. Think of the kids that were orphaned, or the ones that have to grow up with only one parent.
Think of the women that lost their husbands, and the men who lost their wives.
Think of all the fireman, policemen, EMTs and others who were lost.
When you think of all the death and pain that those terrorists put our country through, what is the first thought that comes to mind?
Wanna know what mine is?
"I hate them!"
I know, not a very spiritual answer huh? If thats my veiw, what do you think everyone else has? What about the ones I mentioned above...those who actualy lost loved ones? What about all the families that have sons, daughters, husbands, wives that went to war for our country over the 9/11 bombings? How do you think they feel?
Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but guess what?
We can't hate the terrorists.
Why? Because the Bible says so. It says in Matthew 5:44 "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" This by no means excuses what those evil men did. Do not put words in my mouth! But it does say, that no matter what they did, we shouldn't and can't hate them. Because no matter how much we may disagree, or dislike it, Jesus died for their sins to.
So today, on the 7th anniversary of 9/11, pray for the families, soldiers, & our President.
But also, pray for the terrorists...the Iraqs and Iranians not involved in the evil their country is doing. Yes, I did say to pray for the terrorists by the way. They need prayers, because God loves them just as much as He does you and I.

God Makes No Mistakes

video

It was my turn to sing the special tonight in church, so I sang this song. Its my Grandma's favorite, so I thought I'd record and post it. :) I hope you enjoy! ^^

Sunday ^^




Church this morning was wonderful! Daddy preached on "Unbelief" a strong message about believing in what Jesus did for you. Praise HIM we had 3 first time visitors and 75 out for Sunday school!! ^^ To say the least...we're pumped! By the way...my words, not Daddy's lol!!





I have a question for you!!





I wrote a new song! YAY! My friend, Macky, helped me come up with a few names, but I'm having such an awful time choosing....wanna help me? YAY! I'm glad you do! ^^ I'll give you the lyrics, then the song titles I have so far. If you don't like any of the ones I have...leave a comment with yours! I seriously want you to...PLEASE! lol



Before I do that though, I suppose it'd be good to give you my song's "background." I wrote this in the middle of August...around the 18 or 19 if I remember right. Its talking about a girl (I used a girl because...well I am one lol) going thru a trial...or trials. In the song, the girl is telling God that she's had enough...the trials are to much for her. She can not take them anymore, but just when she is about to admit defeat, God holds her up...helps her stand. God will always do that for you. He's done it for me more times then I can count. He is faithful, and I praise Him for that. I hope you enjoy the lyrics...the tune is still in the "shop." ^^ When its done, I'll post it all.





Verse 1 - I cry out your name Lord,

Why do I feel ignored?

The trials that fill my life,

I can't stand the heartache or the strife.

My heart is full of sorrow,

There's no hope for tomorrow.

My soul is weary of this fight

And I don't see victory in sight.

But you say....


Chorus - "Child trust in me,"

"I loved oyu enough to die."

"I'll never leave you all alone,"

"I'll always hear your cry."

"No matter what you're going through,"

"Trust in me and you'll find,"

"At the end of life's long road,"

"The trials, they made you refind."


Verse 2 - I still feel lost and scared,

You're the only one who's cared,

That my heart is broken and hurting me,

No one else wants to listen or see.

As I stumble through this valley,

I don't know if I can rally.

But as I start to fall, You take my hand.

"Daughter trust in me and I'll help you stand!"

You say...


Chorus again and then the tag -

"So no matter what you're going through,"

"Trust in Me and you'll find."

"At the end of life's long road,"

"Thos trials, they've made you refind"






Leave a comment....I want your thoughts!
