Some thoughts...

Today was just another day. I woke up, took a shower, read my Bible, got ready for school, went to school, and went to my different classes- and all that it includes....

Lately on the radio, I have heard this really cool song.
"I don't want to go through the motions,

I don't want to go one more day,
without your all-consuming passion inside of me,
I don't want to spend my whole life asking
what if I had given everything,
instead of going through the motions"

I don't want just another day. Every day should be something that is going to be something I want to remember. Or simply just winning the battle for Christ that day.

After school my friend and I went to the cemetery where my daddy is. It was a enjoyable time. We talked about memories we had of the past two years through this roller coaster of our lives. We just got to sit next to his grave and talk and laugh. It was a memorable time. Then we walked around and looked at the different people and their names. It's weird, because we were walking around and looking at these peoples markers, and someday someone might look at mine.
When you and I die, what is someone going to say about us? Will someone remember us for loving God, always being a trustworthy friend, someone they could count on? Or will they think of us as the deceitful person, who you could never trust. I really hope that you know God, and that people will remember you for being someone they could count on. There is a song that says..." I wanna leave a LEGACY, how will they REMEMBER ME?" How will they remember me? How will they remember you?

I got a text from a friend..in it, it said...
" *God is too wise to make a mistake, and too good to do wrong*" ....
I really liked that, because my God, He will never fail me, and He ALWAYS has a perfect plan!

By the way friend...I had a great day with you!! (= (pumping water...haha!)

Wow! I have not written in...a long time! My older brother was just home for Spring Break, and we had an awesome week with him! He took me out to the movies, shopping and dinner on Monday. Then Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, our uncle and his daughter were here, and we went ice skating with them...(I got to skip school for the day!!) I have a bruise on my knee from the day! (= Then we went to Johnny Rockets...we had a fun day! It was my cousins and younger brother's first time ice skating, so that was cool!

This week I have exams! What fun! Tomorrow I have a Science Exam. I actually kind of like Science right now, I guess it's in my blood! We learned about velocity, acceleration, and that kind of stuff this chapter, and I kind of liked it! Hopefully I do well tomorrow!

Something we do in my family, is we have plates, and bowls for the seasons, and we change them out. I think we are like the only family I know that does something like this. My dad loved dishes, and when I grow up, I think I will have to carry on the tradition of different plates. I love it! So I changed out the plates today.

The dogs are really big! Mac is huge. Zoe is a little smaller. But they are pretty big!! This is Mac!

Remember to Trust God all the time, and that....
God is good, all the timeAll the time, God is good.

Something my friends and I look forward to all school year long, has finally arrived!!!...our basketball tournament. Our school hosts it, and then we get school off on Friday, and it is a bunch of schools and it is so cool! Our girls are going to the championship, and our guys won the game they played tonight, so tomorrow we will find out if our guys are going! Excitement is in the air! Right before our tournament, we have Spirit Days, where we have special chapels, game time, and we get to dress up! I was Snow White( one of the days!) and I had a Prince, an evil Step-mother, and a Witch! It was pretty cool! My friends and I had a great time. The messages were good. Talking about having faith, but what are we putting our faith in? Don't just put your faith in faith! And then tonight, someone spoke at the chapel that all of the teams are supposed to come to, and it was such a good message! Talked about spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, and it made me realize some things about myself. I live here, and then there are others who are out being persecuted for their faith, and I have all this freedom to share the Word of God, and I don't! It's such a terrible thing. So that was interesting. It has been a long day! I am at my friend's house right now, so I had better get going...it's almost 11pm and we are going to go find something to eat....yea!!
