I hope this fine summer day finds you all very well!
So, what have ya'll been up to? I have been busy mostly with school, chores, gigs, photography, piano playing, editing photos, downloading pictures (which is a headache in itself!), learning new things, sewing, cuddling adorable kittens, teaching fiddle, going on trips and trying to stay out of this Texas heat! :)
I will try and squeeze as many pictures into this post as possible because I know I haven't been posting regularly and I don't put up many pictures whenever I do post..... So, here's to a new beginning and a whole lot more posting in the future!
Okay. So the beginning if June, I had the great pleasure of flying for the very first time and also, to see and stay with my dear sister, Melody who lives in Tennessee!
I stayed up there for about 10 days and I learned a whole load of things. I'm still learning and I know I will always learn new things from God every single day of my life.
I was mainly babysitting the whole time I was up there and it was the first time I had to babysit alone. God knew what was best and so He led me there, through much prayer and patience and wisdom from above. The whole situation was new for me and very strange. I felt nervous, yet at the same time I felt excitement. I waited for a few days to hear from my parents, whether I was to go, or stay. Either way, it was up to God, but He was good enough to let me go and learn the lesson He had prepared and ready, waiting for me. I learned what being a Mom is like and I learned about the responsibilities that come with adulthood and motherhood. God showed me to be grateful right now because I don't have children to worry about and to care for. He taught me GRATITUDE, He taught me THANKFULNESS, He taught me JOYFULNESS, He taught me PATIENCE, and He taught me that there is MORE to LIFE than just the day to day grind. The things I do every single day. It made me think, "What am I doing this for? Is there something more to life than just this, or is this it??" I've found my answer, through Jesus and the mission He has given to all His saints and children. The answer is NO. No. This, day to day, life that I live, it is not what all God planned for me. It is not what He wants me to do. He wants me to reach the world with the Gospel! He wants me to gather as many souls as I can so that they may not end up, in the dreadful place called hell. this is all what I have learned.
I have learned to GIVE my UTMOST to HIM.

"It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I may learn thy statutes."
~~~~~~~~And so with that, I leave you all.~~~~~~~~
