  Hi, everybody! Yesterdays service at my church was really good! I was all stressed this past week . ( Read my last post to see why) I gave it all to God and I felt so much better afterwards. I wasn't worried and I wasn't anxious. He took it and gave me peace. I love it when He does things like that. Plus, I'm not going to do as much for Teen Talent which is really good. It was a good weekend.

   But, wait! There's more! We have been praying for months for a van. The car we had is only a 5 seater and there are 6 of us. And it was tiny!!

   Saturday morning I did a fundraiser for T.T.* with my youth group. It was about 16 degrees and 8:00 in the morning. Not too bad if you don't mind loosing your beauty sleep. Anyway, we were selling KrispyKreme doughnuts and traffic was slow. ( We eventually sold most of them. The people we got them from shorted us and gave us a bunch extra so we had some left over. And NO! I will not mail you any! So don't even bother sending your address!) About 11:00 a.m. my dad texted one of the youth leaders that he would be there to pick me up soon. He was about a half hour late, but when he drove up he was in a mini van. We had been looking at the same van last week. With a grin on my face, I said, " You bought it? "

   He had! And it was debt free! He exchanged our car and payed the rest in cash!

   How great is our God?!

   When my little sister saw it she literally screamed with excitement! What  a great gift!

    Now think: what are you believing God for?

  "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." 

   Ephesians 3:20

Teen Talent Time!

 Hello everybody! Happy late Valentines Day! I hope you all had a wonderful day full of too much candy, cookies, and chocolate. I know I did! I don't know the last time I had that much sweet. Anyway, I've been meaning to write but things kept coming up or I didn't get around to it. ~Sigh~

Things have been kind of stressful around here. I'm getting ready for Teen Talent, doing a dance with my church dance team, and school, which has been difficult lately. Teen talent is a national talent show held by the Pentecostal Church of God.Youth in churches affiliated with the P.C.G. preform in districts, states and nationals. There are a bunch of categories with everything from Christian Rap to  Photography to Christian Comedy. We come the evening before and attend a rally and then turn in our entries or what not for our particular category. The next day we preform and are judged., awards are given at the end of the day. Last year I and a couple other girls got second in theatrical and some of us got first for our human video.

 This year I'm doing a vocal solo, vocal ensemble, dance solo, group dance, theatrical, human video, poetry, and possibly a short film. And I have less than a month to perfect it! See why I'm stressed? So please pray that I will do well and do my best. Ah! I didn't say win. The point of Teen Talent is not  to show off. The point is to learn how to perfect and critique our skills that God has given us. The point is to glorify God with our actions. But, I don't mind winning either. ~smile~

Well, may God bless you and keep you!

I did it!!!

Hi everybody! Sorry it's been so long since I last wrote. I just haven't gotten around to it. Oh well. I'm not gonna cry over spilt milk!

So, I have been wanting to have a cute jean skirt for quite a while. Well, guess what!
I made one!

I am SO pleased with myself. It was the second one I made out of jeans. The first one wasn't so good. I was much happier about this one. It's on the narrow side, so I have to take smaller steps, but it's worth it! I'm working on another right now. When I get the hang of it, I'll post a tutorial so you ladies can make your own skirts. They're fairly easy. Besides theres nothing like the satisfaction of wearing something you made just for you.

May God's grace be with you all!
Happy Valentines Day!
