Hi all! I just wanted to say that I'm sorry I haven't been able to update you all in awhile. It's been so busy around here, what with school and all. Sigh. Do you ever feel like your life is just way too busy all the time. I sometimes feel like I'm getting over-run with all of the things that I should be doing. I suppose I just need to take a deep breath count to ten and let it out. 1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9...10... whooooo. Much better!
Alright, now I can write without frustration!
Just to let you all know the weather here is finally cooling off!! As of right now the temperature is 85* 68% humidity. I know that most of you probably think that I'm crazy to be thinking that this is a good temperature. But, compared to that of the last 5 months, this is great!! I actually slept without a fan last night! I'm hoping that this time the temperature will STAY cool. The last few times that it started to leave it just ended up being a trick to taunt us. You know, like a taste of cake and being told that you can eat the rest for another month! ;) The heat can be a very big test of patience. It's hard to be a blessing to those around you when the heat is causing you to be so frustrated! Still, I do thank God for the heat. I'm not sure what good it does though... Wait! Papaya! I forgot that Papaya grow wonderfully in this climate! There is no getting along without that stuff!!! HaHaHa! :^)
I've just started a new book (my Dad brought it for me from the States). For what I have read I really like it. It addresses the issue of low expectations of teens and young people. Why are you a teenager? Is it because you are between the ages of 13 &19 or does it have something to do you as a person? Is the lack of concern for anything and everything found in the majority of teens these days and result of genes or the result of low expectations? You can read about these issues (and, I might add, quite a few others) in the book "Do Hard Things". It is written by the twin brothers of Joshua Harris (the author of "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" and "Boy Meets Girl").
I would recommend this book as a good read. If you want to visit their site online it's:
I hope that if you do visit their site you take your time to look around a bit.
So, life continues its continuous spin and, though sometimes it feels like I'm also spinning out of control, I know that God has me safe in His arms.
I know that I can trust him.
I know that he will not lead me astray.
I know that He is good.
I know that He loves me.
WITH HIM I CAN DO ANYTHING!!!
Have a wonderful day! Blessings!
