I ask myself why just about everything relates to a quote…
Anyway. ATTENTION PLEASE! =D
I will be taking a break from blogging for a while. As well as Buzz and a few other ‘fun’ computer sites. I will still be on e-mail, as well as posting on Ladies of Virtue often, but that might be it.
Why, thee asketh me? Because the Lord instructed me to do so. I keep being reminded that I am in a battle, and I need to prepare and fight in it. Not be distracted. So, this will be why you will not read any posts for a while. I don’t know how long, but God does, so ask Him, if you fele so inclined to :)
Thank you to all you readers though! Well maybe not ‘all’, as I don’t have a ton. Though I did notice that people from Maylasia, India and Norway have stopped by – amazing! Keep it up people! And please, do leave me comments! I’d love to hear from ye :)
Now, good bye to ye all, and I will most likely still be in touch with most of ya, and if not, well I will be soon!
Keep Christ in your focus!
The King reigns, and His Son!
Happidy Easter to you! Such a joyous day. And the weather is GORGEOUS!
Our church service was really nice. The Sonrise service was at seven am. During the praise/worship service at 9:30am, one of the songs’ lyrics almost made me cry. I had to work hard at not doing so, because I had to be prepaired for singing in front of the church later on with the choir.
A man who has been attending our church for a while now, was baptized after the normal service! I also know of someone else who was baptized today, though I did not get to witness it, seeing as she is over in N. Ireland…
God has been laying baptism on my heart a lot lately, and I am praying about having Dad baptize Noah and I up north at a beautiful spot, with a small waterfall. I think that would be really special. But, like Dad said, we need to pray about it, because we want to be sure Dad has the right in God’s eyes. I pray so. That really would be special. Yes, I have already been baptized before, but I don’t think it is a once in a life deal. I have grown in my walk with Christ much since I was 12 years old, and I would like to rededicate my life completely to Him.
But yes. It is a beautiful day today, isn’t it?
It is just the four of us home – Dad, Mum, Noah and I – because David and Dallas went to David’s family’s Easter lunchen thing…it gives us a taste sort of, of what it will be like soon :(
Well, I think I shall go enjoy this glorious day of my risen Saviour now! Have a blessed Easter! May God be with ye!
Yep! Exactly what my title says…
I thought I should post, but I don’t really know what to post…I mean there isn’t much going on, and yet a lot going on, but that is my personal life, and it would be hard and weird to try to record it all, ya know?
I just got done writing in my book. I love writing. God writing, is actually more acurate. (And I know, that is probably wrong spelling…) He surprises me sometimes, with the things He has me write in this current book I am working on. I love it though. It is so refreshing. Glory to God in the highest!
It’s so weird, how Dallas will be married in a month now. Her wedding is next month. Wow. Her room is starting to look empty, because she has been packing some stuff she doesn’t need anymore, and moving it over to a back room in David’s house to unpack later on, after they’re married.
Today I got two letters, which was great, because one of them was from a lovely pen-pal, who wrote me a very long letter! I was so thrilled with that, because I had been craving a long letter ;) I am fulfilled now.
The other letter was from a very sweet gal as well, though we are still getting to know each other better, seeing as we have only passed maybe five letters if even. But I enjoy her letters.
I have only five letters to reply to now; Julian and Nora, both from Germany (Not related. Julian’s last name starts with an R and Nora’s with a S.) and then Naomi’s, Kenzie’s and Joanna’s. ‘Tis all.
Well……see ya’ll lata then.
So…as some of you know, my parents, my younger sister and I, went down to La Crosse, WI. Actually an hour away from that town…
We went to pick up a dealership car for a dealership in our town, that my Dad does this kind of work for.
What a long day it was yesterday! 12 hours. But hey, I was in WI ;) Almost lived there once…the house wasn’t for us though. That’s a different story however, so shall we continue on with this random post of the car trip?
It went fine, just long. We left at about 7:45am, because we had to get the map and lisense plate from the dealer in town, (who actually is a friend…) and then get gas. We didn’t arrive down there until like 2:30pm or something. And we didn’t get home till almost 8pm. So needless to say, we missed Maunday-Thursday service at church. Oh well.
When we got down there, we ate at…Culvers :) Yummmm.
It was quite pretty down there, but I wouldn’t want to live there. Too south. The valleys were beautiful though!
I took a nap on the way there and one of the way back, surprisingly. I was quite tired yesterday :P
I have nothing really exciting to report…other than absolutely amazing things that God has been doing in our family. But I think I might save that for an entry of itself.
What day is it? April 20th. Oh yes! I almost forgot! It’s almost Easter!! But wait…I thought it was Christmas? That’s just because it’s snowing, silly goose. Snowing?! On Aprli 20th?! We’ve had snow later than this in past years. Remember where you live sista. Oh yeah. Minnesota. Now do you wish you lived somewhere warmer? NO WAY! I LOVE it here. Wouldn’t change a state.
We’re all done. It went really well last night. I stood on the last choir stand thing, almost center-stage, between my Mum and a friend.
I don’t know if I really can write about it justly, as it was so much. And so great. The preformance always makes all the practices way worth-while. Wow. I am glad we did it again this year :)
The last song that we song, the finale, was so fun. One of my favourites! The drums were amazing! I would just adore to learn them and play them that well.
Another song I really liked was called “Take this Cup”, and it was the fifth song. There were nine songs in total. “Take this Cup” is great, because it’s almost…creepy sounding. I mean, it’s like you can invision the thick fog on a dark night. “The street was now deserted as evening filled the air. A band of frighten fo’lwers, slowing climbed the stairs. And there behind the table, a Man was on His knees, He called them with a whisper, come and dine with me” bum bum bum. “The hours would pass slowly, the anxious voices grew, the promises were many, but actions would be few.”
Okay, sorry. I love that song.
Mrs. Z was great on the piano as well. She does an amazing job — she’s our pastors wife, and is very nice.
I had to wear horrid ‘high’ heels. Not too tall of course, but none-the-less, they were highheels. But they were the only black shoes I have that look nice. The attire was all black. I wore my black slightly swooped-neck dress again this year. I think it looked a tad bit better this year, because I’ve lost a couple pounds since then :D
Afterwards, we got a few compliments, and I got a rose petal ;) Haha, it fell to the ground off Dallas’s flowers given to her by her fiance`, and I picked the one off the ground just to be nice. I tried giving it back to David, but he gave it then to Joannah, who gave it back to me. So it is mine xP
The night was very nice. We got home around 9:15pm and I didn’t go to bed till a few minutes past tenpm, because I was writing in detail in my journal. But I slept in some this morning.
But yeah, all in all, it was very awesome! God was praised!!
If you know me well enough, you’ll know that my title is a quote. If not, well…it is.
Not that we’re not busy, because we are. But that’s beside the point.
Today was Dallas’s first bridal shower. It was hosted by a couple of the church ladies. It went very well, and I realized that I never want to have a bridal shower. Way to much attention. But it works out well, because I have decided not to get married. Issue’s much, Raechel? Well I’m sure you have your own.
I’ll of course do whatever God wants.
So yeah. Dallas got lots of lovely things, and she will be starting off her life, very well! I didn’t have to talk a whole, thank goodness, and got to literally sit in a corner spot, and throw away the rapping paper as it was handed to me, watching Dallas unwrap all her goodies. Tiana did a really cute/fun thing for Dallas; writing a letter, and having a gift to go along with each sentence sort of. It really was great. Very sweet to. There were a couple wet eyes towards the end of her letter.
I am so exhausted. I have no clue why either. I’ve been getting sleep. Last night I fell asleep at 9:00pm and didn’t wake up till 6:15am. I could’ve kept sleeping too, I’m sure, but I had to pee. So out of bed I got.
Tonight is our last practice — almost like a dress-rehersal, only without the dress — for Cantata. Tomorrow night is the big thing.
Please pray for me, if you wouldn’t mind, because I am about to take over full control of Ladies of Virtue very soon. I’m looking forward to it, but would appreciate prayer, that God would use me as He sees fit!
Yes, they arrived finally! They first were shipped to David’s sister, and then she brought the remaining three for me, Leah and Kristen here to us, last evening. I do like them. I finally found my camera after prayer, and had Mum take some pictures. So, without further adu here they are.
This is my dress itself. The following pictures are of me in my dress. (I with hold back on my joke.)
Oh and btw, these aren’t the gloves we will be wearing — the right ones haven’t come yet.
We were hoping they would be more lilac, but alas, they looked really pink. But the flowers Dallas had put together bring it all together very nicely, and it all works out. Praise God!
Goodness. I don’t know where to start. I want to share my feelings, my thoughts, my journey with someone, and everyone, but it can be so difficult, because of just how big it is.
My heart screams to be let loose and share what’s in it. Something far greater then anything anyone can imagine. I try to record it in my journal as best I can, but even then it’s hard, because my journal is not actually a peron.
I’ve been reading my beloved “Knights of Arrethtrae” books over again (and actually a couple for the frirst time), and they are amazing. Their passion and zeal for the Prince (Jesus Christ) is amazing, and encouraging! I love being able to relate. I am now on “Lady Carliss and the waters of Moorue”. I haven’t even finished the first chapter, and already, I want to shout from the roof tops of the Lord Almighty and His Son! Words cannot even describe how deeply and passionately I feel about this. I…I just love my Savior so much. I cry to think of Him, let alone speak about Him! Even now I am tearing up. He is just so amazing. Lately, it has been soooo…just wowing. He has become way more to me than ever, if that is even possible.
I have inner joy, even when I get down because of the rainy cloudy day. I am comforted by His word, and yet at times, overwhelmed.
I…I’m speachless. I think about all I want to do for Him, and it’s hard to wait, you know? I know He wants me missioning. But unless He wants me doing that right now, I won’t go until I am probably 18.
But I know He wants me here, right now, spreading His word to everyone I meet. He has been showing me, and my family, just how important it is that we talk of Him always, and praise Him always.
I want to do so much more than I am right now. I wish everyone could feel as I do. It saddens me to see how careless, and… complacent the people of this world are now. Where is their love for our Creator? It greives me to think that they fall prey to Satan and his ways. But we’ve all done it, no matter how big or small the circumstance was.
God has been also showing me how important it is to share Him with my penpals that don’t care. How many of those do I have? Too many it seems. I love all my penpals dearly. The ones in Germany that I write, are so sweet and kind, but they don’t often care about the Lord.
I’ll stop here, before I write too much. But that isn’t possible, is it? No.
“My Savior is enough, and that’s all there is to say.”
I know, I just posted. But guess what I finally did? I loaded the pictures! And I thought since I was on here, I may as well post ’em up!
This is my collection of ties.
These are my books. I have one or two more that are missing from the picture, because they’re somewhere else in my room.
These are my Cherished Teddy’s. Collector tpye things, that I’ve had since I was young.
Umm…pretty self-explanitory, think you not?
My second shelf, a mix of movies, and a few more books.
This is the view out my window. I took it not too long ago, on the last snowy day.
And lastly a shadow on the kitchen wall. I thought it was neat, so I dashed upstairs to retreive my camera and snap the picture.
So there you have it.
