Good morning

  Good morning! So this morning I woke up around 9:30 to my angry fish. It's a bates so what more do we expect? They are very vicious fish indeed, and he always lets me know when he is hungry. He puffs up, and stares at me until I twist the top off the fish food, and sprinkle a small amount into the fish tank. Though he always seems to be hungry, but he's a fish they do a lot of swimming. I have a goal this morning! To teach myself poetry once again. My mother had this curriculum, and it is pretty neat. I use to not be interested in learning, but as soon as I stopped going to school.... Of course the interest comes back!  I will let you know how it goes.   Today it is pretty dark out side I am hoping that we get a lot of rain we could really use it. My uncle Brian is coming into town for the day, and talking to us about some family stuff. I'm super excited to see him!

You hold the key to my life. In your loving hand. Always by my side
I offer all that I am. So glad I realize. You are the truth and the light
In my life. Everything I need I find in you. I believe your promises are true
I will lift my burdens up to you. Your loving grace will see me through.
Jeremy camp- I surrender to you.

     “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7

 Today.. I found myself slipping into sin, and caught myself, and asked the Lord to please forgive me. You know what! He does forgive, and He keeps on forgiving every day, but it does not mean that we can keep on sinning .. No. No. Though we fall every day, and none of us are perfect, but we should try our best to act as shepherds of Jesus Christ, because that is what He is calling us to do. To tell of His good news, and His wonderful heart. He is not a God filled with anger, or hate, the only time He is those things is when we disobey Him, and turn our hearts into stone. Though 70x7000, he forgives us each time. We are to do that to our fellow people, "Forgive and forget" 

   "Forgive and Forget??" Hard to do right!?!? Oh yes very, but I will promise you will feel so much better. Have you been hurt so badly by someone you love, and you can not find the strength to forgive them? He will give you the strength to forgive them, and first to forgive yourself. As people we tend to forget about our selves, but sometimes we need to act a little selfish so we can let go of our hurt, and pain. Even if that means giving us some time to ourselves, and telling the world to please just let me be for a day. No distractions, no pain, no hurt, just  Jesus. Then you feel so refreshed, and you have a better day the next day.  Then be ready to tell the world about Jesus, because I promise you that's what He is going to expect, and that is what He always expects from us! He does not want us to hide Him under our pillows, and give ourselves the glory. He wants us to bring Him the Glory! To show the world How loving He really is....
