Another Life Post

I got this idea from Fresh Modesty, she does super cute posts on modest clothes, and her life all in one. I love her blog. <3

Seeing... Snow Falling
Hearing... The washer running
Smelling... Deer meat
Tasting... Deer meat
Needing... To stop daydreaming
Wanting... To count every moment in this life before I can't anymore
Feeling... Loved 
Wishing... For better weather
Thinking... About braces and Arizona
Laughing... At the silly mistakes I get so upset on
Recovering... From a headache
Believing... That Jesus us my God, and that I will love Him forever 
Dreaming... Of warm weather
Praying... For my friends
Reading... A horrible book from the library (Water Shaper)
Singing... Praise
Wearing... Long sleeves, because it's nine degrees out
Preparing... Myself for the challenges in this life
Remembering... That Jesus will be with me then and there, and with His help I can handle anything
Trying... To be the women God designed me to be
Questioning... Where Satan gets these dump ideas
Fearing... Of nothing because I have Jesus by my side always
Loving... Where God has put me in life, and the people He brought to me
Googling... Jesus' real birthday
Choosing... Grace 
Working... On getting closer to God 
Emailing... And old friend
Texting... No one at the moment, but usually my mom
Cracking... My back, have you ever heard of T-Tapp? You should look it up 
Considering... Myself a procrastinator (I have a new blog called The Writers Procrastination)
Turning... In my uncomfortable chair 
Reducing... The time I spend in the Bible
Biting... My lips, it's a bad habit
Longing... To be in Arizona, and with my God
Suffering... Headaches
Recognizing... The reason I need God
Checking... On when I can go on a missions trip
Organizing... My life
Practicing... Verses, for fun
Reckoning... That I should have done more school today
Smiling... Because God planned this day out perfectly and I should enjoy every moment before it ends

An Update On My Life

Amy Kathleen
Profile: Sinner

Just so everyone is caught up with my life, I will be doing a quick post on what I'm doing in this freezing  weather and how I keep warm.
Well, I went to the orthodontist in December and they said I can't get braces until my twelve year molars grow in. But, we recently figured out that some people don't get them until there eighteen. :-( I did not like the answer Dr. Kingwa gave me (that is not his actual name, I just can't remember what it really was but it sounded something like that). But, earlier that month we went to a dentist that gave us four different places that they recommend, and Dr. Kingwa's wasn't on there. (Dr. Kingwa was the orthodontist I went to before we moved.) Well, we went to one of them that was on the list of recommendations (because the first appt. is free), which is also the same one my friend is getting hers at, and they said that I don't need my twelve year molars for braces anyways. So, when we come to visit at the end of March (maybe), I may or may not have braces. It depends on how long it takes to get another appointment. Yippee!! :-)
Also, I got bangs back when Ms. Heather/Ms. Amanda/Ms. Sarah came to visit. Done by my favorite crazy hair lady. ;-) Then we went to the mall a few days later with them and I got my ears pierced a second time. :-) So, you might not recognize me when we come to visit. :-)
Jeans+ tank top+ long sleeve+ long underwear+ long bra (do they make those?)+ sweater+ jacket+ second jacket+ three pairs of socks+ boots+ hat + three pairs of gloves+ face cover thingy+ thick snow pants= lots of laundry
Yep, that's life here up north. But, if you come visiting here in the summer, I promise it will be beautiful! (BTW summer only comes for a month, and maybe every other year)

All The People Said Amen by Matt Maher

You are not alone if you are lonely
When you're feeling frail, you're not the only
We are all the same in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free
It's all you got to lean on
But thank God it's all you need

And all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen

If you're rich or poor, well it don't matter
Weak or strong, we know love is what we're after
We're all broken but we're all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall
And He so loved the world He sent His son to save us all

And all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen

Blessed are
The poor in spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are
The prosecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are
The people longing for another start
For this is the Kingdom
The Kingdom of God

And all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen 

You Won't Let Go by Michael W. Smith


No shadow comes without the light making a way
No raging storm can ever defy one word of faith
My heart remains sure in the wind, sure in the waves

You are the anchor for my soul
You won't let go
You won't let go
No matter what may come I know
You won't let go
You won't let go

No valley low, changes the truth
So I'm not afraid
You hold me close
You lead me through and light up the way
You are the anchor for my soul
You won't let go
You won't let go
No matter what may come I know
You won't let go
You won't let go

Neither life, neither death,
The highest high, the deepest depth
Nothing can
Nothing can separate
Neither tears, neither trial
Certain as the sun will rise
Nothing can
Nothing can separate

My heart remains sure in the wind, sure in the waves, always

A Story//Requesting Critique

The Lord is near. -Philippians 4:5


 The sun was shining bright that autumn day, though I was the only one awake to see it. It's six o'clock, about time for the sun to rise. I opened up my planner to see what lies ahead of me today. So young, and so confused. Unknowing of the real challenges God plans for my day.

School, work, eat, jog, chores, nothing different in todays plans than yesterdays. Surely it would be easy. So I set out to do it, like always.

Hours have past since that moment, and I plan for it to keep passing, diligently. Breakfast, check. School, check. All that was good until it came time for my afternoon jog. I set out to doing so, but as I did I couldn't remember where I had put my other shoe. After an hour has past and I still didn't know where my other shoe was, I got very angry. But not just any anger, I was angry towards the Lord.

"That man ruined my plans again." I said aloud. Not knowing the harm it could have done. At that moment it was an invitation for the devil to come into my life.

Instead of struggling to find my other shoe, I decided to ask my sister if I could borrow hers, because it was now one o'clock and she'd be awake. "Surely my sister is kind enough to let me wear her shoes for today." I said aloud, once again.

I walk toward the classroom, where she was quietly doing her school work. "Sister, could you lend me your pair of running shoes for my jogging today, I happened to misplace mine?" I said, hopefully.

"No, sister, you may not borrow my pair of running shoes, for I need them for my own jogging later." She replied.

"What will I do now?" I asked myself. "If my own sister isn't willing to give up her shoes, how will I be able to go on my afternoon jog?" Todays plans weren't going the way I had planned, and I was even more angry towards the Lord. Which, in the devils mind, I was pleading for him to ruin my day further more.

So, I later decided to skip my jogging for today, for three hours have past since I was supposed to be back. So, caring on with my other plans for the day, one by one each of them were ruined. Which only increased my anger with my God.

It was now time for bed, missing my nightly prayer, I was in a very deep sleep. I soon began to have a dream.

I was on a boat, a small fishing boat for that matter. And it was stormy, I could no longer see the shore and I didn't know which way to row. Waves came crashing at me and I heard a voice that came from the north side of the boat. I turned to see it, and as you can imagine, I saw the Lord, yards from me. But I was in no mood for talking to Him, for He ruined my plans for today. So I turned back around, ignoring His plea for me.

I woke up late the next morning, disappointed once again in the Lord. The day turned out much like yesterdays, and by the time I was sound asleep again, I was back in the boat with the storm worse than the night before.

"Come to me." I heard Him say. As tempting as it was, I was still quite cross with Him.

Days have turned into weeks, night after night dreaming the same dream, until one night when it began to snow. Fall has now turned into winter, and this pleased me quite a lot. That night, when I was back in the boat, I heard the Lord say to me. "Daughter, my dear daughter. You are lost and you need to be found. You have let the evil one take control of your life. Don't let him, take those controls and give them to me. For I have much better plans for you than you or the devil do. Trust me, my dear one. Take my hand, and trust me."

And at that I took His hand and the waves suddenly disappeared. I have been mad at Him for so long, when it wasn't even His fault but the devil him self's fault. I was quick to apologize to my Father, and asked His forgiveness. "Of course you are forgiven, my daughter." And at that, as if on cue, I was awake, and together, my God and I started the day off right.

Just remember, your best protection is to Thank God in times of trouble.

Something to make you smile

Some people ask me why I'm not looking for someone. But I tell them that I'm just waiting for the right guy, who will come at the right time. God's time.
So until that day comes, and after that even, I will praise His name.
I am a Princess because of the one who saved me.
So no matter what you think of me, what others say behind my back, I don't care. You and your friends can keep on whispering, because for me, and those that love me, we are not caring other than with love.
Because the One who Saves forgives, and forgiveness is the best medicine you can find to heal a broken heart.
But true forgiveness can only come from the heart, and the heart only comes in God's hands, and God's hands are what holds the Kingdom of Heaven.
And the Kingdom of Heaven is where the Father is, and the Father is the reason that I'm here.
The reason that I can breathe.
The reason I can laugh and play with my loved ones. And I can't imagine living without that happiness that God has given.
So I am going to keep living, keep praising God, keep praying to my Father, my Prince, my Love.
God Bless, Amy
<3 Jesus was my first love <3
