Changing the World
Perhaps that is an intimidating title. Yet it is something I have been praying about for a long time. I don't know what my life is going to bring, but one thing I know is somehow, for God, I intend to change this world. It is a daunting task. But it is worth it. I don't know very many other 18 year olds who have heard God calling them to that. But I am ready for whatever He has in store for me. God has a great sense of humor. I don't know what happened or how this jumped into my mind, but somehow, I know He has put it here for a reason. Now I just have to wait and see what He has planned. I can't wait.
Last Friday we went bowling again. Twas fantabulous. Except, I don't know if anyone else noticed, but I was not quite myself. It was really strange. I just didn't feel as bubbly as usual. And I forgot to grab our camera...again. Some of the others had their camera's, but I don't have any pics from them. Except one...
I'm not exactly sure how it started, but all of us kids there who had facebooks decided to take crazy pics with NN's hippie headband which I bought her earlier that day (we went on a sister date!!!) and we are going to post them on FB as our profile pics! I am determined to get over my fear of cameras. Its like jumping off the diving board. You just got to throw yourself into it, take the leap, soar over the water, and feel the freedom wash over you when you slither into the water. I hate having my picture taken. If you would notice, most pictures anyone takes in a group, I will not be found in. :P
This morning I found a possum in the chick coup. It was rather devastating. Only four chicks escaped. Daddy and I killed him with a ninja sword. Seriously. And he was U-G-L-Y.
Last night we went to some friend's house and had a blast!!!! We played volleyball (speed), ultimate frisbee (not my fav, but its good), and badminton. I didn't do too good because I have a fractured toe (officially figured out what is wrong with it...). After that we went down to a creek bed, had a campfire, prayed and sang songs. It was heavenly.
Now I am trying to finish up a couple of books on my reading list, edit another chapter of my book for Daddy to check over, and finish a drawing.
Aren't the glory's of God amazing. How He must enjoy painting pictures like this one. His magnificence is beyond words.
