Relaxing a.k.a. Being Lazy

Well, as ya'll know it's summer vacation. And since it's summer vacation, I've been living the dream life! Staying up til one, or two, or three, sleeping in until 12, not having to be any where at any specific time! Whew! I'm loving it! Today was the earliest I got up so far this summer. I woke up the first time at 7:40, pushed snooze, then got up eight minutes later. I didn't even change out of my pajamas til around 8-8:30ish PM!! lol Jesten came over with Megan, Brittany, and Brianna, so I had to get dressed to entertain company. If I lived like this every day I would be SO spoiled! But, whenever school starts it will be no longer. Well, I just had to let every working person know what they're missing ;-P Love ya'll!!

Miss Hannah Putman

Right now we're in Revival with Brother Jason Putman. His daughter, Hannah, has been spending a lot of time at my house. Yesterday we were bored, so we decided to go outside and take some pictures. Here's my pitiful attempt at being a photographer. Enjoy!:-)

Don't ask me why, but Hannah wanted a picture with the fire hydrant...very strange:)

My poor, poor babies

Today we got our kittens back from the vet's office. On Monday, they were spayed and declawed. I missed them immensely while they were gone. No little fur balls to come in and scratch my eyelids off in the morning with their tongues. No kittens to walk under my feet while I was busy in the kitchen. No annoying little meows that meant, "Pet me! Pet me! Feed me! Love me!"

Now that they're back I feel quite sick to my stomach. They are both limping and and favoring their right paws. Diamond adjusted to being home more quickly than Chloe, but I think Chloe is coming around. We just fed them some tuna so hopefully they'll be a little happier being home than when they first got here.

Well, I'm gonna be going now. I hope to post more, but with being in Revival and the bake sale on Friday and everything, I'm not sure how much I'll get around to it. Bye for now!

God is Our Refuge

In my last post I mentioned the tornadoes that we've been having. On Friday we were all down in our basement waiting for the storm to pass over. I was on the computer when my mom came downstairs after she answered the phone and told us that we had to go into the basement because of the tornado. The first thing I thought of was my Bible.

When we were in the basement I got so much comfort out of God's Word. I read from Psalms where David talks about God being a Buckler and a Defense. One of the girls that was here was terrified. As I was reading she started crying.

I really don't know how to explain it, but through the whole thing I had so much peace. Even while I was scared I knew that God was going to take care of me and that I could just be calm.

Hello everyone!

It seems that once again I'm feeling an immense amount of guilt....it's been over 3 weeks since I last posted. For this, I'm terribly sorry!
Let's start out by letting you know that we've been extremely busy, but that's all good.

A week ago from last Friday, my aunt and uncle and their family came all the way from Indiana just to see us! Not really just to see us, but they were here for the annual Memorial Day picnic that our church has. On May 30, Sunday, we had our 5th Sunday service which was a blast! (I just love it when we have those.)

Then on Memorial Day, we had the picnic of course, which was also a blast. We played volleyball and the team that I was on won both games. Not because of me, of course, because I only had one good hit. I served quit a few times and those were all good, but I wasn't in on most of the action. After we went to the cemetery to visit Nicholas' grave, we got rained out of the picnic.

On Thursday our school went to the Carnegie Science Center and we were there all day. It was a lot of fun:) On Friday, after we had a tornado warning and were in our basement with like 15 other people, we-all the girls that spent the night that is- prepared for the yard sale on Saturday. So on Saturday we had our yard sale and ended up getting rained out of that. But before it rained we did ok.

We've been getting all kinds of tornado watches and warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings...its crazy.

Well, yesterday morning we went into Revival service with Brother Jason Putman. God truly blessed our church when Pastor Anthony met Brother Putman. He's a real man of God and he knows how to get in touch with Him. God has really been moving in our church. I just can't explain how awesome it is to see people being pulled out of the world and into the church. Wow! :) Well, I'm gonna quit rambling. It's just about time for me to start getting ready for tonight's service. I'm looking forward to and expecting a mighty move of God! :)
