I got my license!!!!!!! :D The instructor said that I did wonderfully....only one mistake and it wasn't really even my fault!!
Its so cool...last night before work I was talking to my mom and grandma while they cooked supper and I said "I'd really like to go visit Sky before I go to Shain's" and my mom was like "Well go then!" I said "Oh yeah! I can do that can't I?" lol :)
The only weird thing was driving home last night in the dark. That could get a little scary if I let it but I just cranked up the Rochesters :) The Lord was with me anyway, what have I got to fear?
Thank you to all of you that prayed for me!! I felt it so much. I'll tell you an interesting story...lol Its an exciting one.....
What the road test people do is have you come into their office, take and eye test then go out and sit in your car for 10 minutes. (The LONGEST 10 minutes of your life!!!!!) So there I was, sitting and panicking, when I decided to just pray earnestly and hard. I said, "Lord, I know I'm not supposed to ask this but I just need, a, sign or something, of what my outcome is going to be. If maybe its your will for me to fail or pass...I just would love to know."
I ended my prayer then cause the lady came out and started the outside check of my car. When she got in she smiled and said hello then looked at my paper. She looked up at me very quickly and said, "Elisabeth BELL? Are you related to Pastor Todd Bell and Amy Bell?" I was like, "Um yes ma'am they're my parents" Vickie was her name, and she got SO excited! It turns out that Mrs. Antonis (Some of you won't know her...she is a lady in our church that moved to FL with her pastor husband) is Vickie's daughter's grandmother in law...and Vickie had gone to a ladies conference and heard my mom speak!!
I almost wanted to ask if I could get our of the car and shout but not thinking that would be appropriate I started the car and off we went.
Wow, the LORD is so good!!! He didn't have to show me He was there, but guess what? He SURE DID!!!!

As you can see, SkyBabe is sporting a BLUE ribbon!!! We won our very first flat class at the Lucky Clover Show!!!!!
The morning got off to a rough start. I was almost ready to give up on riding her at all, but I'd already payed my money and didn't want it to go to waste. So into the class I went expecting not to pin and LOOK AT THAT!!! WE WON!!!! I love Sky sooooooo much!!!! She came through for me....it still amazes me. :)
More pix WILL be up soon! I promise!!!

So last Sunday we had the One Man Volleyball team come play us at church! :D It was great! While we were watching the boys play I was taking pictures with my phone. Nick walks over and plops in my lap and was like "OH! Can I take one?!" So I said, "Sure Bud, here" and then next thing I know he'd taken 4 pix of himself lol :) This was the cutest and funniest one!!!

Well, tonight I arrived at Shain's and was told that I was too make Seadog Biscuits. (For those of you not from around here a Seadog is two chocolate chip cookies with yummy yummy vanilla ice cream in the middle. And not just any ice cream, Shain's of Maine ice cream.....voted best ice cream in New Englad!!!) :)
Anyhoo, a special order had come in for 400 bicuits with Black Raspberry ice cream in them. (Ew) So my co-worker and I slaved away and two hours later they were done!! :D
This is just a picture of my hand after doing about 25 of them lol ice cream was EVERYWHERE!
Earlier in my day I went down to the barn to ride Sky. :) She was being so great, so I decided to take her into the indoor and try a course. What I didn't realize was that all of the bags of shavings were stacked in there as well. (around 150 of them!) No big, I said to myself and Lizz, who was helping me by making a course, She'll calm down and get used to them in a bit. Well, after about 10 minutes of preping I turned her towards a cross rail jump going towards the shavings. (A crossrail is just two poles making an X) Well, she was SO worred about the shavings that she didn't see the jump until it was too late. She FREAKED out and slid to a stop and jerked left and I went flying.
Kay, imagine someone doing a cartwheel...you see it? How they go into this nice beautiful elegant X? I did that through the air lol My legs took the jump completely out and I landed in the dirt on my back.
It still does.
:) But thats the price you pay to ride horses right? Anyway, I'm fine :)
This is one of the cuke plants...cute isn't it? :) I named it Larry lol He was my first one.

I stare out my bedroom window,
To the sound of falling rain,
I thank God for my life,
So wonderfully free of pain.
Not everyone is as blessed,
As God allowed me to be.
Many don’t have mothers
Like the one God gave to me.
She gives to me so much,
She’s way above the rest,
She’s been with me through it all,
Through every trial and test.
I love my mom so much,
She’s my dearest and best friend,
I don’t know what I’d do,
If one her I couldn’t depend.
But if some day in this life,
Jesus calls one of us away,
You’ll still be my mommy,
And I’ll think of you everyday.
My love for you is strong,
This fact I hope you know,
And as the years go by,
It will do nothing but grow.
It all started Sunday afternoon. It was a little cloudy but my siblings talked me into going for a swim in the newly opened pool. After we'd been swimming about an hour I started towards the ladder to get out. Benjamin yelled something to me so I turned and talked to him for a sec, and when I turned to grab the ladder do you know what was swimming beside me?
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!
I started shrieking and I mean BLOOD-CURDLING screams! It was so gross and IN MY FACE!! *shudder!* EWWWWWWW!
I can take a lot, but that, was just too much. Whew, my heart is picking up speed just telling you about it!!
lol so anyway, thats why I sat sweetly by the pool and watched Abby and Nick swim. And yes, we did get the icky amphibian out lol

Man, lately I can't go one day without something weird, odd or painful happening to me. Yesterday I went on a trail ride and after I got back my left eye hurt pretty badly. So I rubbed them and continued on but they kept hurting until it was almost unbearable. To make a long story short I have a cut on my eye. "Is it painful?" You may ask....It feels like a knife keeps poking into it slowly and purposefully. I wanted to murder someone last night it hurt so bad lol But...*sigh* thats muh life. lol
Another new thing -- I'm selling Sky :( Shes just not the horse that I need right now. Its very sad but it needs to be done. At the moment I'm looking into free leasing a horse for a couple of years until I go to college. We shall see.
Well I must sign off for now...Ben wants me go to swimming with him. Hes scared of the frog we found in the pool last night lol!!

Anyway...I had a not so good day. Well, everyday is good cause I've got Jesus! But today was...interesting. lol First off, at 5:45 this morning I hear my mom shriek and yell "ELISABETH!!! ELISABETH!! THE HORSES ARE LOOSE!!" I run out onto my front porch and watch as my horse and 7 of my friend's horses go galloping up Grammar road. After my heart was done skipping five beats I ran out and helped round em up. Barefoot and in pajamas I might add. So then, after all of that, I fly into the house at 6:20ish and fly through getting ready. I had no idea that I could fix my hair that fast lol!
When we got to school, my friend Alec was so nice. He brought me an ice cold Arizona IcedTea/Lemonade. Yuuuuuummmm its one of my favorite drinks ever! :) So there I was sipping it and talking to him when BOOM! A little kid runs through the door and hits my arm which sends my tea flying all over Alec and the floor. :( I only got to drink half of it and poor Alec's leg was sticky.
Then we had finals.
Literature was first which I'm proud to say I got a 90 on. Then came Algebra. *sigh* My day just continued....I got in to take the test, looked at it and my mind went "BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH!!" I was seriously starting to think that 2+2=5 or even fish!! I did awful on the test!!! Then, I had to sit in the gym for the rest of the day!
At the end of the day, Our bus was 20 minutes late and I had to sit in the parking lot with 6 screaming children.
Okay, I'm starting to think, things can't get that much worse. Ha! So I'm riding my horse on a trail ride and we're just coming over the hill to go to the barn. She freaks out and takes off up a STEEP STEEP hill and almost brings us both down. It took 30 minutes to sort out her awfulness and Then....Oh yeah, theres more. Two horses broke thru their fence, almost trampled me and I had to fix the fence and I GOT SHOCKED!!!
But... God is still GOOD! Amen? :)

I've been studying the book of Jude quite a lot recently and these verses always leap out at me. I will not lie to you, the first time I read the book, I was shaking with conviction the whole time.
Contending for our faith is very hard in this day and age....the world is bound and determined to bring us as Christians down.
But....Jesus went to the cross for us.
He died and shed His precious, perfect blood so that we could be born again and not have to go to a sinner's hell. The least THE LEAST we can do, is be a witness for Him. So, CONTEND FOR YOUR FAITH!!!!
Man...I feel a preachin' spell as Daddy would say! lol!!!
We all had a great time Friday night! The decorations were awesome, the food was GREAT and all of the servers were wonderful. :)
