1 Corinthians 13:2-8a, 13
"And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way;it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices with truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

To be a Christian

Here are a few definitions that really have me thinking about what it means to be a Christian.

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 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"'s more of a prayer see with the eyes of Christ.

Godly Girls

The Whole Crew

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 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!
