Well, I'm sorry I haven't posted in quite a while. I hope you haven't forgotten about this blog yet, for lack of posts. :)

On Friday, we went to a sleepover. It was a very blessed time, spent with some great friends. I have posted some pictures. Hope you enjoy them!

Back Home

So, our family is VERY happy to be back home from Las Vegas. We went there for my grandpa's funeral. It was a blessed trip, and we were all able to spend time loving each other, by sitting close in the car. Car trips have got to be one of my fondest memories! I love passing the time by reading good books, having nice long talks with my big sister in the back seat, and just enjoying the beautiful scenery that God has made. We had a good "vacation", and were able to edify and build up one another. Thank the Lord we're back home, and ready to pick up our tasks once again!

Life is Fleeting

Yesterday, late at night, our dear Grandpa passed away.

As I sit here, pondering death, I think of how life goes by so quickly. Sometimes it seems as though life will go on forever and ever, but it doesn't. Death will come at one point. But, death isn't the end. While here on earth, we must spend our time fighting the good fight, working to finish the race to the best of our ability. However, when we get to Heaven, we get a new body.

Sometimes, I think: God, we prayed that you would heal this person! Why didn't you heal them?

But, God did heal them! He took them home with Him! And in Heaven, we get a new body that no disease or sickness can corrupt! He may not have healed them in the way that we thought He was going to heal them, but in a different (even better) way.

It is so comforting, because, before, my Grandpa wasn't a Christian. He was so against God's Word, but at the very end, He made peace with God. Our God is so amazing! He gave my Grandpa a few more days, so that he could come to know the LORD, and he did.

We should spend our time here on earth wisely. Do not waste the few years of life that you have. Spend it glorifying God and giving Him praise. Life is but a vapor... here one day, gone the next.

~I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. ~2 Timothy 4:7-8

1. Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

2. Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

3. Be still, my soul, though dearest friends depart
And all is darkened in the vale of tears;
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrows and thy fears.
Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay
From His own fullness all He takes away.

4. Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

In Christ,

The Love of the Brethren

I think one of the hardest things to do is to love But everyday, we find ourselves having to love someone. We are constantly around people. And not only people, but sinners! We are always with family and friends, who are very tough to love, but yet God commands us to love. I think all of you would agree with me, when I say that people who are closest to you are hardest to love. But just think: What is being humble based on? How about not being selfish with your toys and things? I'd have to say: LOVE.

I remember, as a young girl, I would often find myself having to say sorry. I had no problem with just saying, "Sorry." However, when it came to actually hugging them, and touching them, I didn't want to do it. I was so full of pride, just the thought of hugging them made me cringe. After all, they were the ones who committed the wrong in the first place! I actually have to love them!? That's impossible!

Sometimes I wonder, Why did God make his greatest commandment so hard to do? I have to keep on reminding myself "to love". I'm not supposed to say "sorry" just for the sake of saying "sorry", but my motivation should be because I love my siblings! I am continually having to cry out to God for help in loving my family!

Loving is hard, but it tends to humble me, leave me not as selfish, drive all anger away, and help me in being more gentle and understanding with people.

Needless to say, my family and friends have been REALLY loving to me. But the most loving is God, and I have definitely learned from His WONDERFUL example. He loves us even though we are the most wretched people ever! Its soo amazing, and I'm just glad I have such a loving God!

~And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. ~1 Cor. 13
