Happy almost New Year!

Hey all you fellow bloggers out there!
Christmas is over and the New year is almost here...can you believe it? I can't...this year has been such a growing time for me. While I haven't grown an inch physically! God has really been working on me spiritually and mentally...Great things He has done!
So how was all your Christmas? We were all sick so we stayed home but it was still nice. I got a willow tree figurine (I love those!) from my Mom, books, a gift certificate to Joann's fabric store, and a purity ring.
The purity ring is my 3rd one in 4 years! Whew! :) The 1st one I still have but my sister bent it really bad. The 2nd one was an opel and I was shopping for camp one fateful summer day and I went outside to wait to get picked up and while waiting looked down and the stone was gone! I never found that! And now, my 3rd try, I was baking last night and bumped my hand and the stone fell out! It must be an opel thing! Thankfully though...I have the stone and my Mom is going to go have it fixed.
I have picked up with my sewing again. I think it would be soooo neat to open a store that specializes in dresses and skirts but cool modest ones! That i design...oh well! Maybe that dream will come true! WHO KNOWS what tomorrow holds!
So where are you in your relationship with Jesus at the beginning of this New Year? I hope that it is going well! Trust in Jesus and remember that no matter what You can always go to Him! Praise His name for such a chance to make the most of this new year are you doing it?

New oppartunities!

Hey all you bloggers out there!
God has been doing some pretty amazing things lately. And I have really been struggling with the what if's. I am so sick of doing that! I had a really good talk with my mom last night...I have realized that it really doesn't do ya any good to worry! I say that my future is uncertain, but, in all reality, it is very certain because I have Jesus in my life and as long as I am going HIS will...nothing can go wrong!
So, my Dad is hoping to go on a missions trip to Mexico this summer. I was going to go with him but was directed otherwise! I am really excited 'cause by the time that he leaves I will (hopefully) have my liscense and can drive my Mom and siblings around! YES!!!
Other exciting news...i am graduating early! Which means that I am doing 11th and 12th grade right now! God is so good! I can't even convey to you how thankful I am for His unfailing love, mercy, and forgiveness. So, I will be having a grad. party this year! I am glad of that 'cause if I had my grad. party next year a lot of people that I really want there would not be cause they are going back to the mission field! So, God has worked it all out for His glory. Like always.
I am so happy because starting this Friday I am going to start working with a youth group in Perry. There are 50 kids (and it is still growing by at least 3 everytime) and each of them are abused in some way. It is so sad. I am so glad that I am able to be able to work with these kids. I have to admit though I am kinda nervous! But, I know that if this is where God wants me He will guide me!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Yes, it is once again that time of year! I am so broke! Negative 3 dollars to my Mom. I bought a jar of pickles from her for my sister. No, I am not a complete weirdo! She ASKED for them! I don't know where she gets it...LOL! :) This Christmas is going to be great! We celebrate on Christmas eve. We are going to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast,then, we are going to go to a church in Fairport, then, we are going to go see the Nativity Story, then, we are going to go home eat pizza and wings (our "traditional" christmas dinner) and open presents! It is going to be a great day! But, lets remember to keep the Christ in christmas this year! God gave His best for us! Do we remember to thank Him for it?
Oh, about the Nativity Story here is a link to the site! It looks sooooo good! TTYL.

Hey all you bloggers out there! Here are some recent thoughts...I have really had my eyes open to what I should do lately concerning missions...I need to stop sitting on my bum and get out and start living my dreams! Start allowing God to use me where I am! I have realized just last night...I have had oppertunities right under my nose! I am hopefully going to be able to help with a youth group of 50 kids under 15 years old that are ALL either emotionally,sexually, or physically abused. One 6th grader is dying from anorexia...she wears size 2 TODDLER!!!! And her family doesn't care! This is 10 minutes from me! I have kinda been worrying about what God would have me to do after graduating. I have such a heart for street kids...abused and hurting kids, and prostitutes! How many have died? TODAY! How many young girls have lost their virginty? TODAY! How many kids have gotten high 'cause they can't deal with who they are...the fact that no one loves them? TODAY!!! It is such a big would out there and I want to reach these kids and show them love! Give them hugs and kisses...teach about Jesus! them...and show that love! I can't explain it! Ol, I have rambled on long enough! I hope that you could make some sense of it!
