What a Year!

I've had a few years in my life that I thought, as they came to a close, I really could have done without.  The year my mom had cancer was one.  The year I lost my best friend was another.  The list goes on...

I've also had a few years where I felt they couldn't have gone more perfectly.  The year I was given a surprise birthday party was one.  The year I made a new best friend was another.  The list goes on...

There's Just Something About a Skirt...

I love wearing skirts.

No, I mean, I LOVE wearing skirts!

Like, really, really LOVE wearing skirts!

I don't all the time.  I do a lot of biking in the summer and I've discovered that wearing a pair of (not tight-fitting) jeans can be more modest than a skirt in that situation.  I also have a trampoline in my backyard and jumping on it is a good way to excersise while spending time with your little brothers and sisters.  I discovered that this is another situation that skirts aren't always the best option.  :-)  Don't ask.

A Faithful God

"I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings of old,
Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.
We will not conceal them from their children,
But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done.
For He established a testimony in Jacob
And appointed a law in Israel,
Which He commanded our fathers
The they should teach them to their children,

The 1st Christian generation of my family with the 3rd believing generation.

That the generation to come might know,
even the children yet to be born,
That they may arise and tell them to their children,
That they should put their confidence in God
And not forget the works of God,
But keep His commandments."
~Psalm 78:2-7
