A Busy Weekend

This past weekend was soooo busy!
With Caroling, Christmas parties, Ballgames, Spanish church, and ''I love Jesus Sunday'' .It's been pretty crazy.
We went Caroling on Friday with some of the young people from church. It was so fun.
Here's a video of us Caroling (Warning we are not pro. carolers)

We all rode on the church van and it got a little loud, especially when Daddy asked where we wanted to go eat~Did somebody say Mcdonald's? Sadly we didn't go to Mcd's, we went for pizza instead.But we all love Mcdonald's sweet tea!!!!!!!!!

See...





Here's some Caroling pictures...





































After a busy night I woke up bright and early and went to a Basketball game at Sarah's school. It was a great game even though they lost=( But it was a fun game to watch.

All the guys on the team got their heads shaved soooo it was kinda hard to tell them apart.







After the Ball game, I went home and then left again for Spanish church. It was so great! There was a new family there this time and Alberto, the guy that came last time, came back . I had to play piano this time (it was scary) but I was glad to help.




After Spanish church, a Couple in our church hosted a Christmas party so we went and had a great time. But I was getting a little tired. .'o




Next we had ''I Love Jesus Sunday'' at church. Dr.Ron Comfort came and preached an excellent sermon, and the most exciting thing~ 4 souls were saved!!!!! And 2 ladies Daddy led to the Lord on Thursday came forward and gave a profession of Faith.It was truly a wonderful day!!!!!!!!




But it was also a weird day.... look..






It get's weirder...




And we also had twins...

THE END

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Last week we were able to hold our first Spanish service at our church.
Me and my family have always had a burden to reach the Spanish-speaking people in our area, and recently we became friends with Bro Keel who has started several Spanish churches and was also a missionary to Mexico. So Daddy and him went witnessing and door knocking and found that some families were interested and had been looking a good church.
So last Saturday we had church, a Spanish Pastor from another church came to preach and brought some of his people. We had one of the guys that could speak English, interpret.(I can speak a little Spanish~very little)The sermon was very Good, he preached on the church, the Love that the church should have, and the tears that should be shed for the lost souls on their way to hell. There was one young man that was there that wasn't saved one of the men talked to him afterward but he did not make any decision, so please pray that he will be convicted and will get saved before it's to late.

The Princess and the Kiss

I'm a 17 year old young lady .I'm not like most girls my age in so many ways . I'm not dating a bunch of guys ,I'm saving my heart for the man that I will one day marry,not handing pieces of it to every Tom, Dick, and Harry.I'm praying that the Lord will send my man to me, I'm not looking for him ,but I'm waiting and getting ready for him. But until he comes I'm serving the Lord and loving it! Another thing that makes me very different among most 17 yr old girls is I have never kissed a boy.I plan on saving my First Kiss for my Prince Charming on my wedding day. I love dreaming of that day ,I have so many plans for my wedding and I don't plan on ruining them for fun for a little while ,or sin for a season. I want to Honor and Please my Heavenly Father and my Earthly Father by living a clean and pure life, and having a good testimony. Along time ago we found this book that truly explains the wonderful gift God has given us our kiss, and how we should cherish it and save it for the one God has made for us.
The book is called ''The Princess and the Kiss'' by Jennie Bishop.
It's a wonderful story so I thought I'd share some bit's and pieces of the book.
When the Princess was finally grown , the King and Queen
called her to their side.
''We have something very special to give you,'' said the Queen
Up, up, up the royal family went to a secret room in a tower of the castle.
On an elegant table in the center of the room was the same gift given to the princess long ago... The Kiss.
''God gave this gift to you on the day you were born,'' said the queen,
''Because He loves you so dearly.''
''And now,''continued the king,''this kiss is yours to keep...
or to give away, as you see fit.''
The princess stared in amazement . She had never before received such a wonderful present .
''But use wisdom ,my daughter,'' warned the king,'' and save your kiss for the man you will marry. Never part with it for sake of a stranger.''
Many men came ,one by one, to ask for the princess' hand in marriage.
One by one she turned them all away. None seemed worthy of her kiss. She began to doubt that she would ever find a husband.
One night, she spoke with her mother, the queen, about her fears.
''Mama, '' the princess asked, ''will I ever find a man so special that I will be able to give him my kiss?''
The queen smiled, gazing at the many stars twinkling above in the velvet night.
''Oh, yes, my dear. I think God will bring a husband to you. But, if he does not, the kiss will be yours to treasure forever.''
The princess took comfort in that thought, for she knew that God could be trusted, and she cherished the kiss with all that she was.
The next day, a common man came to the castle.
He asked to see the princess.
The man was taken to the royal garden where the princess and her parents were walking among the rosebushes.
The princess' mother and father were surprised. Who was this man?
he seemed common - yet kindness was his manner.
The man looked into the princess' eyes.
''I have worked in your father's fields for many years. I prayed and watched and waited for one who could be my wife, yet found no one . Then one day I saw you walking on the palace lawn. Your beauty was marvelous, and your purity sparkled like diamonds.''
The princess blushed, and her heart began to beat widely.
''I have little to offer you, Princess,...I have no gold. I have no means to travel the earth. I am not as strong as many...''
''...but I do have one very special gift I can give to you.''
This is my First Kiss, Princess,'' said the man. ''God gave this gift to me on the day I was born. My parents kept it for me until I became a man. I have saved it all my life for you. Would you be my Wife?
''Yes!'' she cried.'' Oh, yes, with all my heart!''
The Prince and the Princess lived happily ever after. Soon God gave them a child of their own. And on the day of the precious baby's birth, the wise prince and princess received for their child a very special gift from God...
A Kiss.

Old Fashion Sunday

Yesterday was Old Fashion Sunday, one of my most favorite Sundays.
One of the reasons I love it is because I get to dress up!!!!!You know I always love doing that.
It was a really great day,Daddy preached on ''Returning to the Old Paths'' and One soul was Saved!Amen! On Old Fashion Day people bring antiques ,too. So that's really neat looking at all the really old stuff. I brought an old Starline suitcase that my Granny gave me and a couple of old books. Me and my family love to find old books. It is especially cool to find books by
Amy Carmichael or Frances Havergal. We get very excited when we find those!

Well here's some pictures of yesterday's events.

Obama's in the Bible

Guess What Obama is in the Bible.It's true.
A man in our church showed us where it is ,and now I'm gonna show it to you~
Psalm 109:8
Let his days be few;
and let another take his office.

Guns,Guns, and more Guns

Today Me and my Daddy went to a hunting lodge to look at Guns!
Our History Club is all about World War II right now so we are learning all about Japan(sammie would love it)and Germany and this time we learned about rifles used in the War.
It was very interesting although only the boys understood all the gun talk like,''bolt action and 22 ,semi automatic ,and 360~'' but it was pretty cool ~even though I didn't get to shoot any of them!lol.The man that taught us, knew his guns. He also taught us the importance of the 2nd amendment and how when they take away our right to bear arms, they take away our right to protect ourselves,our God given right.It really made me want to go out and buy a gun, because I have the right to bear arms ,but right now I'll just leave that to Daddy.
You know I just had to take pictures soooo here they are...




This Picture of Daddy reminds me of something...
A STATUE....You Know...
