The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!


                                                                                       Our little rescue dog! 

Hello everyone!
     Two days ago I went to the dog shelter in our town! Oh, sooooo cute! No uglies, though.
I was with my friend, and we had a good time. Except I got peed on. Yuck!!!!
We got to walk some pretty dogs, and some really hyper dogs!
But I got to walk a very timid dog. She was really nice. Long black and tan hair, about two and a half feet long, but really low to the ground. She had probably been beaten before, and was a bit afraid of humans. But she faced her fear and found out that I was nice to her and loved on her. I hope she finds a home soon.

    There was another dog, though, that tried to bite me. He, too, may have come from a bad home. But, unlike the last dog, he didn't let go of his fear and assumed I was trying to hurt him, instead of pet him.

   I have a question though. Which dog are you? Are you the dog that decided you would let go of the past, and try again, or the one that missed out on the love he could have had if he had had courage?

   You see, people are like dogs in that way. They can hold on to the abuse that they have experienced and let it make them hard, and suspicious; or, they can let it go, forgive, and move on.

   If you have had an experience that has left you angry, bitter, or suspicious, there is hope for you.
It's called Jesus. Jesus died for everyone on the cross so that they could be free from sin. He also died so that you could release that bitterness and give it to Him.

   You eventually will have to decide for yourself whether you will follow Him, and let Him give you eternal life.  Or, you can choose another religion, and go to eternal suffering.  I want you to go to Heaven. I want you to have eternal happiness.

   But before that happens, you have to know Christ. If you want to except Him as your personal Lord and Saviour, all you have to do is say the following prayer:

    Dear Jesus,
I believe that you died for me on the cross so that I could be free from sin.
I want you to come into my life, and guide my footsteps.
      In your holy name,

 And that's it. If you prayed that prayer, please leave a comment, and I will pray for you that you will stand firm, and grow. Now the next step is to get a Bible and start reading. There will probably be a version at your local book store. I recommend the New King James Version (NKJV) or the New International Version (NIV).

    God bless you and guide you!

This One's for the Girls

 Hello sisters!

  I just got done with having a study about virtue with my mom. And you know how I said I would have a something to challenge you every week? Well here it comes!

   What do you think when you see a girl walking down the street with her belly hanging out and her chest showing? Not anything real good, huh? Well, while you're thinking about that, what are people thinking of your own attire? Is it good, or bad? Are you turning heads because you are dressed modestly, or immodestly? I hope modestly.

   As daughters of Christ, we have the responsibility to present ourselves in a manner pleasing to God. And that does not mean skin tight jeans, sheer, or tight tops, or tops that show cleavage. I know that this is not a topic that most girls like to talk about.  Because of that, it is being put on the shelf; and, the topic is not getting addressed too often.  So, even though it's not my favorite topic, I'm willing to talk about it for the good of us girls.

    We have a thing called allure, our appearance; and, it is a powerful thing. If we do not protect our bodies by covering ourselves, we are not only sinning against God, but against ourselves, against our brothers in Christ, and against our family. Think about that for a second. You could be sinning against lots of people because you wore that mini skirt. Or those pants, that you can hardly breath in. Or what about that top that shows half your stomach, so you wear a jacket over it? And then when you spread your arms, that jacket pops open and your stomach is the featured view. What if your mom saw that? How would you feel? What if your God saw that? How would you feel? And what if, what if, your future husband saw that, and that left a bad impression on him? You could cause your future husband to stumble as well as other future husbands.  You see, we women are terribly mislead by today's fashion. The question is if we are willing to go along with all this. Are we going to go along with all the piercings, tattoos, and tight clothes?  

   We are supposed to save our bodies, our kisses, our hugs, and love, all for one man. And the plan is that we wait for that pleasure until after our marriage.  We have to keep our minds pure, too.

   If you are immodest sometimes, even if you are a Christian, you're not alone! I even dress immodestly sometimes. But, because I have had high standards set for me by my parents, it's really infrequent.
But even though I don't want to dress immodestly, I like to be noticed. Who doesn't?  But in liking to be noticed comes the danger of immodesty.

   One definition of modesty is expressing yourself, but, with CAUTION! Doesn't that sound easier? It does to me! Because I don't like to go around in dresses all the time. So here are some tips to make your wardrobe more modest.

1. How do I know if my shirt is too tight?
   If it is stretching across your chest, well, it's tooooo tight!
     The solution? Mine is, first clench your hands and go inside your shirt and push it out. This usually helps a good deal. If it doesn't, then you need a bigger shirt!

2. Is my shirt too short?

     Reach for the sky. If you see your stomach showing, even a little, then yes. But, there is a sulution. Go buy some tank tops. They will do wonders. Just tuck them into your pants. And layers are TOTALLY in!!

3. Are my pants too low?

    If when you bend over,  your back shows, yes. This could be your pants or your shirt. Either way, all you need is a tank top to tuck into your pants!

4. Is my shirt too low?

    Lean forward, and look at yourself in the mirror. If you see your chest, you need an undershirt. But congrats to those who don't!

5. How short is too short?

     Well, sit in front of a mirror (If you don't have that, then your mom will do!) cross-legged and indian style. If you see your undies, then you just need to throw out that pair of shorts or skirt, or you can wear leggings. But I don't recommend them. If you are wearing something skin tight, you are basicly giving a view of your body. This includes skinny jeans. You're better off throwing them in the trash, or giveaway.

   Well, I hope I have challenged you to look at your wardrobe a little more carefully. Remember, we are helping to shape the next generation of leaders and, more importantly, each other's husbands.

"I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
By the gazelles or by the does of the field,
Do not stir up nor awaken love
      Until it pleases."

Song of Solomon 2:7 NKJV

 To my friends, sisters, and readers, God give you guidance,

Sunday Morning Sermon

Hi everyone!
I just want to give a thought before I rush off to church.
What would happen if we all decided that we would not watch trash on TV?
How would that effect you?
That's it!

 So, what did you think of my last post? (look below this post!)I hope you liked it. I wrote it( the song). Don't be surprised!  I like to write songs. I also sing, play piano, a little guitar, recorder, and I can sound things out on a Romanian flute. What's that? Well, it's sort of like a recorder, but it's wooden. And it's hard to play!!! If you are thinking of taking it up, please tell me!! I don't maen to boast, but God gave me a gift and I might as well tell you about it.

 I also like to act. I especially like to play dramatic people. ( Sooooo me!!) I've played an old lady,an angel who just had a solo, but my favorite was a spaniord music instructer.I also wanted the main girl in that play. But I got the instructer instead. I was really happy to get it!!

  So you see my dramatic side. What's yours?
  Please leave a story about yourself in the spotlight!!

  Christ's child,

Just Goofin' Around

Hello, Everyone. Today I was cleaning some of my drawers out and I found this version of  Thank God I'm a Country Boy.

 My chicken sneezes,                                                
 My goat she's nuts, 
 My old dog wouldn't chase a duck.
 But, with all this hard earned luck,
 Thank God I'm a country girl.

 I run down to the creek to play,
 But my dog, at home he'd rather stay.
 All this fun in one single day,
 Thank God I'm a country girl.

 My pa he works hard each day,
 Our friends, thay bundle up hay.
 I thank God for every single day,
 Thank God I'm a country girl.

 Throw on some boots,
 Throw on some jeans,
 Go on out and pick some beans.
 Three spuare meals every day,
 Thank God I'm a country girl.

 Down in the creek we laugh and play,
 Pickin' flowers on the way.
 Enjoy every single day,
 Thank God I'm a country girl.

 Got a good family,
 Mom and Dad,
 And us kids even though we can be bad.
 We love each other in the right way,
 Thank God I'm a country girl!
 Thank... God.... I'm A Country Girl!!!!
