Sunday's

Sunday is probably one of my most favorite days of the week. I love going to church and spending time with my friends and family. Today we did something a little different. Of course, we get up and clean our dog kennals, then come back and get ready for church. When we went today, there is a church not far from ours that is doing a drama for the poor part of our town, and asked if any of us wanted to go! So my sister, my friends Kaitlynn and Gabrielle and I went to the drama today. We learned a lot, and we are hoping to finish before Easter.

Now, usually, I like going to church, then coming home for a nice relaxing day. I love days where I can stay home. I love my home, and would rather be here than anywhere else in the world! We are commited to this drama though, so thats five more Sunday's of not relaxing. But, thats okay. If it means I am doing something to change our community to loving and worshiping Jesus Christ, I'm glad to do it.

Bob

Our dog Bob has heartworms. We got him from a kennel that didn't take care of him. We started treatment at the beginning of March, and he is doing well. Bob is the type of dog that loves, loves, LOVES to run, and he can't do that for six weeks. He is calming down a whole lot. Here is a picture of him:

New dresses


Momma made me and Emma some dresses for the Father-Daughter Retreat! I just wanted to show you a picture of them(:


It was so sweet of her to make them for us. I think Emma and I will enjoy them

Youth Retreat

Today we got back from our youth retreat! It was just the weekend, but it was GREAT! Everyone from our youth group wants to go back for a week next summer! We got to do challenge courses, zip lines, and tons and tons and TONS of ping-pong! I grew so much in my faith, and had such a fun time with my friends! I am SO blessed to have to many good, Christian friends in my youth group.

Devotion

So, at Youth Group this week, I have to do the devotion. It isn't hard, because there is usually at the most, ten people. I thought, since you couldn't be there, that I would do it on here.

I am doing it on Jesus' return, and the tribulation. It is a scary thing, but people don't realize that it is the most wonderful day for us Christians that will ever, ever, EVER be! Jesus will take us up to Heaven, and we will be there for eternity with Him. We will have whole new bodies, and be able to do all the splits, home runs, and flips that you can ever do! It will be an ugly sight for all the non-believers and atheists, but that is why we have to keep going and spreading the Good News so that we can be in Heaven with everyone that we love. I do admit, I was scared to be in Heaven. I was scared about the day that Jesus is coming back. I wanted to make a bargain with God. I would pray and ask "God, if only You will let me get married. If only You will let me have children. If only I could live a long life, THEN You can come and take me to Heaven." I didn't want to go to be with God. I started to pray, and read my Bible more this year. God has given me a peace about the tribulation day. I will be ready to go spend eternity with Jesus. I want to worship Him every day. I will spend eternity with my great-grandmother. I will meet my great-grandfather. I can be with all the dogs that I ever had! It will be the best day in the world.
