All Around the World


I love trees and the great outdoors!

Washington, DC

I have a pine tree I like to climb and sit in.

I love to sit by creeks.

Badlands, South Dakota

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

So I haven't written on my blog for a long time....too long. And here I am, sitting at the computer at 8:30 PM, wondering what to write about. There are lots of interesting things in my life, yes. But what can I put into words?

How about I show you some of my favorite places on earth?

16 and a half days until summer and Sam's graduation.

30 days until Nemacolin.

40 days until the Fourth of July.

About 68 days until I get to see one of my best friends ever.

98 days until my parents' 25th anniversary.

Where has my life gone?!

I am running out of ideas for things to write about...sorry I can't come up with anything better:).

Hope you have a great day!

Awesome Verse:)

Romans 8:35,38-39
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? For I am convinced that neither death nor life, angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor any thing else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Footprints in the Sand by Mary Stevenson

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

What I Need to Know

Ah! I haven't been on my blog in what feels like AGES:(.
So sorry! Life just got away from me. Oh, gee, speaking of just that, the other day I just thought to myself, where has my life gone?

I'm stinking gonna be in middle school next year! I honestly cannot believe time goes this fast. Before I can even stop to protest, my life will be zooming down teh road to college, then marriage, and motherhood. Sometimes I have to take a moment to just look at myself, at my life, and remind myself that this is MY life, this is REAL.

One of my biggest questions is: What splits the boudary between what I NEED to know, what I WANT to know, and what I truly understand?

I need to know how to go to sleep without my blankie. I need to know how to run the house when mom is gone. I need to know how to stand up for myself and say no. I need to know how to handle criticism and bullying. I need to know how to fend for myself. How to operate a credit card, what's the difference between credit and debit?

I need to know how to drive a car, how to make decisions, how to save money. I need to know how to work hard and never give up. I need to know how to give my best, but never everything I live for. I need to know how to say, "Sorry, I called the wrong number." instead of just hanging up.

I need to know how to make enough time, know when to leave, and when to arrive. How to use passwords, how to work a key, how to say sorry when I really don't want to. I need to know how to speak, to a person who just lost someone very close, and how to handle the pain, when I loose the person I love the most.

What do I need to know?

How will it end?

Will it end in fire, in a big explosion, a giant mushroom cloud?

Will it end with a bang, a boom, a flash of light?

Will it end with yet another fight?

How will it end?

Will it end with a shout, a triumphant cry, when it ends, will we ALL die?

Will it end like it begun, every nation peaceful, every battle done?

Will it end with all of earth asunder, every particle split apart?

How will it end?

In my heart of hearts, I know it will only end when God has finished His plan.

When Jesus comes again.
