I love each day because God chose me, Jesus saved me, and the Holy Spirit guides me daily.

Its Been A While.

Haven't blogged in a while. Been super busy. Mostly with just sitting here on facebook. But also with volleyball. It rules my life. As many of you know, I have volleyball like EVERY weekend. Its crazy. Its my life. But it pays off. This weekend we made it to nationals in Reno! Im so excited. It'll be so much fun.
Also i am SOOOO ready for school to be out. Ap chem is kicking my buttt. Better yet, I just want to be at OC already. Sooo ready for college and to get out of stupid high school. 

So now to the serious part, this weekend after my volleyball tournament, I went to the Senior High retreat. I wish I could have been there the whole weekend but I was there only for only half of it. The half that I was there, one thing in particular stood out to me. When Tom was talking about him battling cancer, and about how there were many miracles in the beginning, I was very encouraged. I mean, the miracles he was talking about were things that I wouldnt look at as miracles. It shows me that there are many miracles or things that I should be thankful in my life that I  just take for granted, or that I think its no big deal. But the reality of it is, God does so much that I don't even think about it. He has blessed me in so many ways.

Well that's all I got right now.

My God Is So Powerful

Have you ever thought of how great and powerful our God is? I just think about it and it amazes me. He is so amazing! For class at church, we used to watch Numa videos. There is one of them called Whirlwind, I think.. But anyways, in it, it talks about the book of Job. In Job 38-41, God is talking to Job because Job is questioning Him. He's kinda sarcastic in it, which I find funny. He says things like "Do you send the lightening bolts on their way? Do they report to you, 'Here we are'?" He's trying to tell Job all of this so Job wont doubt him and will trust in Him. If you continue to read through the chapters it keeps talking about how amazing and powerful God is. If I'm having a bad day, I just read through the chapters and it just makes me happy. Makes me remember that God is great all the time. He is more powerful than anything and with Him I can get through anything.

What Easter Really Is

Easter. Some people think of this as a holiday. Some people think of it as Lent finally ending so they can eat their sweets, or drink coke, or get on Facebook. I think of it as Satan being defeated by Jesus raising from the dead. Jesus overcoming death. We should be so thankful for everything that God has given us. I mean He sent His one and only Son so save our sins. How cool is that? Also right now, I am watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Watching this also remind me of how I should be thankful of how God has granted me with the life and things I have. I'm so thankful for my life, and for my family and the roof over my head.

So this weekend, as I said, I went to the Arkansas game. I'm paying for not wearing sunscreen. I'm burnt so bad. It's kinda hard to move my legs. Not going to lie. This weekend was an amazing weekend. For one, I've had a free weekend! No volleyball! Also, Corey and Amber came home. I had a lot of fun with them hanging out, seeing movies, going to the game, and shopping. I wish Meagan and Dustin would have came home. That would have been perfect.

Things That Stress Me Out

Last night i saw the Last Song. It was a great movie! I was afraid that i wouldn't like it very much because usually the books are better than the movie. The book was still better than the movie, but the movie was not a disappointment.  

Today i was thinking about what stresses me out. I bet a lot more things stress me out but some things just come to mind. First of all, shopping in messy stores. When im looking around in i.e. Forever 21, there are so many options just everywhere in the store. It just stresses me out. Also paying at a bowling alley, especially at the Springdale one. The people are so rude and i never know in which order to pay. Shoes or game first? I dont know. The last one is getting gas at gas stations. Gas stations hate me. They never seem to work when i want them too.  Either the wont pump the gas or take the credit card. It is horrible.

Also today i went to the Arkansas Baseball game. I'm really working on my Chaco tan. Well today, I got a Chaco burn. And a shin burn. I'm pretty sure my shins are as red as a tomato. I hurt. After the game my mom, Amber, Corey, and I went shopping. Ya i said it, shopping. And yes, I actually purchased dresses and shirts and cardigans! It was shocking.

April Fool's Day

So today is April Fools Day. Honestly I don't this holiday. 1. Because usually the jokes are annoying, immature, or just don't fool me. 2. Cause I'm not serious enough to trick people, I usually just laugh and the joke is ruined. But i will say that i got fooled today. In my computer apps class today, i went to google cause i never like doing my work in there, therefore i google. But on the page it said "Topeka" instead of "Google". I was so confused. So i clicked where it said "Topeka", and it had this whole article where it talks about Topeka, Kansas changing its name to Google. I was so surprised and started yelling it to the whole class. But then they laughed at me and said it was April Fools Day. Ya i know, I'm an idiot.
