As the girl stood in the field
She leaned over a beautiful rose
She watched as the wind blew every petal away
She felt as if she were holding her life in her hands
The mistakes she thought could never be forgiven forgave
The last petal blew away but not unnoticed
She hoped her life had brought the happiness to everyone around her
The way this flower had brought happiness to her
As she looked down there was nothing left of the flower
All she had left were memories of the flower in her heart
She hoped that when she was gone from this world she too would leave
Sweet and fond memories in the hearts and minds of everyone
The way the flower had left her.

The ground upon which she toils is so dry
That when it is hit with water
One would think that there is a small fire
Because of the dust it produces
Her garden looks as if it is a burial ground
For decaying vegetables and rotting weeds
Her house looks as if not even pigs would feel welcomed
But that the perfect guest must be the most gruesome of bugs on the planet
Accept them as a donation
She is the very definition of poverty and filthiness
And every day these facts are made known to her
By the glances of her passers
And rather than imagine a different way of living
She excepts her state of being
She is thankful that she even has land and that she has clothes to wear
And that if ever one day she comes out of her state of life at present
She can comfort those who still are there because she knows how the glances pierce
In her own eyes her life is the very definition of happiness and content
She feels as if she were living as a princess treasuring every moment
Without uttering a complaint because her maker is still giving her breath.

"I do not seek to understand in order that I may believe, but I believe in order that I may understand." -Anselm
"Brothers, know how immeasurably God deserves to be loved. The Lord, who is so great, first loved us who are so little and so wretched! What then, I ask you, could be the limit of our love?"
"He who is filled with the love of God is easily moved by everything in scripture."
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

The coolest thing about my day is that I found my future husband! I am going to tell you a little about him...DO NOT scroll down this post and look at the picture at the bottom just read the post first.
So my future husband is a little older than me, he's a really good listener, he's tall, When we get married I will do all of the driving( and he won't even care!), he doesn't care where we go at ALL! He really is a great guy...the only problem is he doesn't talk...at ALL! And everybody calls him a dummy. :(Here we are!

Christian-believer in Jesus Christ as Savior: somebody who believes that Jesus Christ was sent to the world by God to save humanity, and who tries to follow his teachings and example
Faith-belief in and devotion to God; belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof;
Nonbeliever- somebody who has no religious faith or beliefs
Sin-to commit a offense or fault of any kind; wrongdoer
What really has been getting to me is the definition for Christian...one who tries to follow his teachings and examples. I do not normally find myself on a regular basis trying to be more like Christ. More often than not I am thinking of myself...what I want to do...what I like. Do you do that?
I really like Brandon Heath's song "Give Me Your Eyes"...it's more of a prayer really...to see with the eyes of Christ.

So, after I was feeling better I had a bunch of friends come over...we made pillows and laughed the whole time. I have prayed for so long and wished to have godly friends and I finally have them! And not only one but FIVE! God has blessed me so much by putting these godly young women in my life and I thank Him very much! I do not blame my Dad for leaving the house before every one got there...it was a lot of fun but really loud! I am still surprised that Claire slept through it all. :)
These girls are such an influence to me and I love them SO VERY MUCH! THEY'RE AWESOME! Here are some pictures to show you how much fun we really had!
Sam and the girls
Strong tower of godly girls
We had a lot of fun!
