10 Days 'til my 18th B-day!

Hey all you fellow bloggers out there!
So yeah...heh, last night I was in such a mental fog and it DIDN'T get better today! It was actually kinda neat. I got sick this morning. So, I took some medicine but I still wasn't feeling better so I "skipped" Sunday school and wow! I had the most amazing time just me and the Lord. I took my Bible and prayer journal and my cup of tea and just went out and sat on the porch and spent a good 40 minutes just basking in the Word and the presence of the Lord. There is just something about just sitting before the Lord, with no distractions and wow, yeah, it was really neat. I am glad I was sick! :p The verse for today that the Lord just really used in my life is a very familiar one:

"11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
~Jeremiah 29:11-13

Isn't it so comforting to think that the God of the universe takes a personal interest in each and every one of our futures? Just thought that was cool...

So, after church, I went upstairs and just crashed. I had taken medicine earlier and wow! It KNOCKED ME OUT! When I awoke, I was in such a mental fog it wasn't even funny. We had a campfire after church and us kids went to the store to get food. I was so out of it Danny offered to buy me Mountain Dew to get me alive and functioning...didn't work. Anyway, this is what I have looked like most of today:


Do you see the glaze over my eyes? That is AFTER the mountain dew. HAH!

Anyway, last night we did go to the fireworks and wow were they amazing!



That is my favorite pic. They were so beautiful! (and loud :p)
Tonight at church me and Jen and Brooke sang a Barlowgirl song in church. It was really neat. I am so excited to have them living up here again and just for the oppurtunity to minister to her and be the big sis she doesn't have and with 3 younger brothers, I think it will be good :)

Anyhow, I am off to...watch a movie (I think) and wash my feet (been going barefoot EVERYWHERE including tonight when we sang. Oh the joys of a little country church) and then to bed. So goodnight all :)

wow I know how you feel! I haven't had enough sleep for a VERY LONG TIME! I need to try to go to bed earlier, but I always start doing something, and before I know it, it's like 11:30! I need to try harder to go to sleep at 9 or something.

That's wonderful that you had time just with God!

How fun to sing a BarlowGirl song in church...and barefoot! Sounds fun! My feet are gross right now from walking around the dorm barefoot. I suppose it isn't clean like at home.
