Good Morning!!!  I can't believe that it has been a full week!! I went to a youth retreat last weekend so it will be nice to relax this weekend (and add more to the site). How are you today? Ready to be the kind, loving person God wants you to be or are you a little tired and cranky? I actually got a lot of sleep last night so I am ready to have a great day.

Don't worry about a thing, God will be their for you so leave the worrying to Him!
Have an awesome, worry-free, stress-free day!!!
Did you know that God is the one that makes the sunshine bright in the morning for everyone to see! Why don't we spread a little sunshine to everyone we meet! We can be His sunshine people... We make decisions for ourselves. God tells us the right decision, but we often times give in to temptation. If we make the decisions we can choose whether to wake up on the right or the wrong side of a great day.  We can choose whether to be loud and pround telling people about him or shy and standing in the background.  I say that everyone needs a little sunshine so why don't we be the sunshine people of this world for God. I challenge you to be loud and proud and telling people about your God. I know sometimes it may be hard (I know that sometimes its hard for me...sometimes I can be shy), but God has done sooo... much for us so why don't we do a little for Him.

3 cheers for sunshine!!!!
Emmanuel = God is with us
It is true...
Even when you think He's not....He's there
You are never truly alone
He is ALWAYS there
God is always and will always be there for you
God loves YOU

Think of it like this...
God came from warm-weathered Hawaii to the cold North, North-East, Midwest, etc. etc. for you
God loves you sooooooo much that He sent His ONLY Son Jesus to die on the cross for you!!!
God loves you more than you will ever know!!!!!!
You may think that you are just a kid/teen and you can't make a difference in the world around you...
I say "WRONG!!!!"
We can make a difference through the power of prayer!

Most of us heard of the earthquake(s) in Haiti
We have one way we can help them without giving money
We can pray for them
Ask God to be with these people
Ask God to give them hope
Ask God to help them start their new lives

God will listen
He has 3 answers to prayer...
or "Maybe"
Just wait
You will soon see the Miracles of His Love

Never forget....
 Ok so this is a little random but....
It amazes me thinking about the airplane.....
I mean it just kind of takes off and flies through the air...
Its almost like its flying over God's hands.....
Its just so interesting how it flies without constant crashing.....
I didn't know Social Studies and the Industrial Revolution would actually impact me this much....
Laugh Out Loud

Still it is pretty amazing how God gave us humans the power to create amazing things
Some things we even take for granted....
We never think of it.....
Things bigger than the Industrial Revolution....
Like our freedoms.....
I am free to be me
You are free to be you
But the more I think of it,
It becomes more apparent how long it took us to be where we are
Not just as a person but overall

The Freedom to worship our Lord freely
Freedom to express ourselves, our opinions....

Wow, I didn't think Social Studies would actually make me think this much....

Have a good week!!!!

Remember the line below... its true... we have but one life... so lets live it to the fullest!!!!
"We only have one life so laugh hard, love truly, and forgive quickly."
