in Christian music, there are the songs that you know are from Christian bands, which in your head, mean that they are Christian songs.
some songs require a scavenger hunt to find what in the world they are talking about. some are quite obvious.
these songs are special to me because, in all honesty, they straight up share the gospel. IN A WAY THAT ATTRACTS MOST HUMANS: through la musica.......
why don'tcha take a listen to these tunes:
"Lead me to the Cross"

I LOVE HAZELNUT COFFEE!!!!
i don't even know how to begin describing it. before i made this new step in my life, i had told myself i would never like nor try hazelnut coffee....the thought of nut flavored coffee made my skin crawl .

honestly...it feels like it purposely sticks out a leg to trip you only to laugh at you when you fall on your face......
My reason for this decision is based on what happened to me yesterday......
See the umbrella?
yes you should...its RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE.......:)
anyways......i was dropped off at the tech. library so i could work on some homework, and then walk down to my orthodontist for an appointment....being the airhead that i tend to be, i did even think to bring an umbrella even though it had rained the day before and the sky was looking very overcast. of course....
so after being at the library for about an hour, i decided to look out the window. and low and behold, IT WAS RAINING....of course. i ask God right then and there to stop the rain...and it did....for a little while....
i get ready to leave the library, happily packing my things mind you, when i look out the window again.....it was raining HARDER. so i decided right then and there that i really needed and umbrella. i go in the college book store. they have umbrellas, but the only kind available are the big ones (notice pic above), which are, of course, the most expensive.
one umbrella and $25 later (yes, that's how much the umbrella cost...ridiculous, i know), i walk out side, with the already unwrapped umbrella, keep in mind, so i now can't return it.
OF COURSE.....being Beaufort.......it would still be raining, BUT not hard enough to need an umbrella......OF COURSE.........
i would really like to break this umbrella............

we discussed our focus as young women and "what commands our attention", while using the book Girls Gone Wise by Mary A. Kassian....please get this book and read it and check out more info here: http://www.girlsgonewise.com/
but a question was asked in class that got my attention: "Who in this past month, has memorized atleast ONE bible verse?" i looked around the room to see who had raised their hand....only two, maybe three people.....i wasn't one of them.......
as i was thinking about this question, i suddenly felt ashamed of all of the young women in the class, including myself. hardly anyone had even tried to memorize a verse....(either that or there were plenty of people to shy to raise their hand...)
we were then challenged to memorize Titus 2:3-7; what it means to be a women.....
so, to those girls(or any young or older women...or anyone for that matter, who happens to read this blog):
Come on my favorite females! Lets try hard and start memorizing those verses, so that we can hide in our heart, what it means to be a Godly young women:
"Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love thier children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonered. Likewise urge the young men to be sensible; in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified," Titus 2:3-7
this verse reminds me that i am, in some way, an older women, and that i have younger women looking up to me, watching what i do, what i say, how i act, what i wear........i DO NOT want to lead them in the wrong direction, i DO NOT want to be a bad example to these precious younger women who are watching me......i DO want them to grow up and be Goldy young women of God, having wonderful examples to follow and i hope as a sunday school class, we can be that good example.......COME ON MY FAVORITE FEMALES!! WE CAN DO THIS!

~start this blog off by saying that it's been awhile since i last posted
~apologize for not regularly blogging
~say that i'll do better, because i may do better....and then again....i may not.....so i'm not gonna say anthing....;)
What i am going to say is: i have an amazing sunday school class. My teacher teaches straight from the word of God and challenges us.
Today she began answering questions from cards that we had given her a few weeks ago.
The question was, when is the right age to get married?
pause: so this is a high school girls sunday school class; we have talk about dating and things of that nature for a couple months. and this was a very good question; i had kinda been wondering this too.......
My teacher (she is Ms. Audrey, my pastor's wife and an amazing woman of God....to read her blog, click here. )
She bega by taking us to Genesis 1, which tells of creation. Then we went on to chapter two and she began this list: (information taken from Genesis 2 -------------> should be read to get the full affect of what i'm saying)
- God formed man
- God planted the garden
- God placed man in to the garden
- God gave man a job and cultivates
- God gave command-> postive and negative
- God says that man needs a helper
- God brought animals to Adam
After everything that happened above, God puts Adam in a deep deep sleep, takes on of Adam's ribs, and forms a woman.....When Adam awakens, he finds a WOMAN......and not just any woman either. He finds....
ok...so look at the list that was made and think about it in the sense of how we answer the question: when is the right age to get married?
Have you thought about it? Don't read any further till you have......
ok.....notice that before God brings Adam's woman, God gives Adam a job to.....do what?
TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR HIS WIFE!!!!!
Now do you see the answer to the question? When i found it out, it was like a light balb turned on a a very very dark room........

....maybe i should spend it blogging too....;)
Anyways...today i am working on a script for Vacation Bible school. I got the main girl part (yay) but it has been alot of working memorizing scripts......i have rehersal tonight so lets hope it goes well, shall we?
I wanted to run this by the internet (which consists of whoever reads my blog, which i don't think anyone does so i could just be talking....i mean, TYPING to myself...) this idea that i had....
IDEA: So i have been looking for a summer job (which has gone no where so far) and there is this dude on the interenet who does daily Vlogs (a video blog...kinda like this only with video) of his family and himself ON youtube. He challenged himself to do it for a year and after the year was up, he just continued it. i Believe that he gets paid sine he allows adds to pop up on his videos.
I was actually thinking of starting to do this too.....ya know...if it makes me some money, i think it would be fun....but FIRST: i need tyo get into the habit of "vlogging" regularly....
So, to whoever happens to see this, what do you think? if i started doing it, would you help me out by watching and subscribing to me on youtube? Whether or not you think its a good idea, i may try it any ways....we shall see...:)
