So, Halloween is just around the corner (Like tomorrow) ;). Lots of people will go out tomorrow night dressed up as witches, animals, clowns, and who knows what else. Trick-or-treating is a very popular thing to do because it's well, FREE candy (and people like to rot their teeth out too). ;) But why is Halloween so dark and evil? Why do we as Christians celebrate this day as a favorite holiday and such? I don't think it is wrong to have fun and such, but there is something about celebrating a day that to me seems like the "devil's" day. It's filled with his kind of stuff. He would love for people to dwell on "his kind of stuff", but why don't we as Christians make something good out of such a day? Why don't we shine Christ's love to others as we are trick-or-treating, going to a festival, or even staying at home passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters?

So, this Halloween, make it a day for the Lord and not for the evil one. Go shine Christ's light wherever you go! (And make sure you eat lots of candy ;)!)

You Are More

A few nights ago, I got to spend the night with a few of my friends at a Tenth Avenue North concert. I think that it was the best concert I have been to. There was something at the concert that touched me. I still have to figure out why exactly, but when they started playing You Are More, I couldn't stop the tears. It might be because sometimes I think something like -I am not "good enough" and that I am not worth anything. But this song tells us we "are more than the choices that" we make.
Great night, great band, great songs, and not so great of a blog post, but who cares?! ;)

It's My Right lyrics

It’s My Right by Chris Jackman
(Clinic Worker) Welcome to the clinic. Please come, take a seat.
I’ve just reviewed your test results – you’re pregnant – ‘bout 9 weeks.
(Women) What am I going to do? I can’t be pregnant again!
How can I face my family – my church, my boss, my friends?!
(Clinic Worker) In your situation, it might be wise to choose
to terminate the pregnancy. I would if in your shoes.
(Women) It’s my choice. (Clinic Worker) Such a simple solution.
(Women) It’s my life. (ClinicWorker) That’s my conclusion.
(Women) It’s my body. (Clinic Worker) Such an intrusion.
(Women) It’s my right... Isn’t it?(Clinic Worker) We can take you right now.
(Women) But I should think this through.
(Clinic Worker) Do you really think it wise to wait? You know what you should do.
(Women) But how formed is the baby?
(Clinic Worker) Mmm, just clumps of cells, at best.
Merely two teaspoons of tissue. Will this be cash or check?
*DIALOGUE BRIDGE: (True description of 9 week pre-born child)
“A pre-born child between the ages of 8-9 weeks has everything present that will be found in a fully developed adult. Her heart has been beating for more than a month, the stomach now produces digestive juices, the kidneys have started functioning, and fingerprints are
already evident. The baby responds to touch and will curl her fingers around an object placed in the palm of her hand. Recent studies indicate that even at this early stage, a pre-born child experiences pain.”
Chorus (X2)
It’s my right...It’s my right... It’s my right... Isn’t it?

Chapter 2 coming soon ;)

I will be working on Chapter 2 soon....


Many people(including me) think it is fun to play pranks on others, but is a prank really something you should be playing on other people? I think a prank is consider a lie (a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood-dictionary.com). After all, aren't you trying to make them believe something that isn't true?? Although pranks may be really fun for the person doing them, is it really worth it? Is it really worth telling someone a lie, losing some of their trust, and possibly damaging your friendship with them? That's just what I think about pranks....

The Women's Retreat

This past weekend, I went on a women's retreat with some of the lady's in my church. I feel like God has shown me some stuff, even if it wasn't related to the topic.
1. I need to listen and learn from the elderly more. I need to realize that they are really wise and that I can learn so many valuable things from them.
2. I am looking down on my sister, and the stuff I think about her isn't even true most of the time.
3. I am making a difference in the world even if I can't see where or how. God is using many in many different ways.
4. Adults struggle with the same things I do. Forgiveness. Insecurity. (and lots of other things)

I hope that I can use these things that I learned to make me grow closer to the Lord, my sisters, and those around me.
