Right now i am in Apparel Development class sitting next to my friends Natalie and Abbey. We are doing to review on the computers and i am almost done so i have taken the time to do a little writing. After i finish with these tests i am going to be working on our last sewing project, making pajama bottoms. About 5 mins ago we had a fire drill and because this class is full of girls i think became deaf when the alarm went off. So basically we are all sitting in our classroom mostly quiet and doing our review and then the alarm sounded, i think every girl in the class screamed excluding my friend Abbey and I. Well i have to go because i am almost done and i have to sign off. So i am going to go finish me some pjs.
Music can evoke every emotion. It can make you beyond happy, ecstatic even! It can make you just smile uncontrollably. And then it can make you cry your heart out or if you are just down it can somehow find a way to muster any ounce of happiness within you and make your day a little brighter. Music is the most amazing thing God has created and there are so many beyond brilliant things he has formed with his hands but in my opinion music trumps all. If you cant tell already, i am a little passionate about music. And no i cant play an instrument or sing gorgeously but i can listen, really listen to a piece of music and just praise God for the gift of even allowing my delicate ears to hear such a marvelous thing. Right now i am sitting at my computer almost in tears at how much i am thankful for it. One of my favorite things to do is go in my room and just turn my favorite worship CD on and just praise God and just let the music and the words envelope every bit of me. Like wow, sometimes i just want to jump up and scream to The LORD saying THANK YOU I LOVE YOU. HOW CAN YOU GIVE UP YOUR SON'S LIFE FOR ME AND THEN GIVE ME ALL THESE AMAZING THINGS THAT I DO NOT DESERVE AT ALL. Okay now the crying. So there.
I have been thinking lately about family and what constitutes a family. I have a great family, a big one but a great one. But then i also have some amazing people in my life that i would consider my family any day. After i have read over my blogs recently i see a recurring theme throughout all of them and that is they all have something to do with the people i love. I am a really relationship oriented person. So my life is centered around two things: God being number one and then my "family." The people i spend time with on a daily or weekly basis and enjoy being around tremendously i believe to be in my family. Whether they want that or not. =]
I looked up the word Sister in the dictionary and i got these answers;
1. a female offspring having both parents in common with another offspring; female sibling. 2. a female friend or protector regarded as a sister
My older sister and i have a fantastical relationship that could not be duplicated if tried. It just wouldn't work with anyone else but the two of us. She is my best friend and she means the world to me. There are about 4 girls that i would truly consider my sisters just like the second definition. They mean so much to me and they all have brought me so much closer to the one true king and i am sincerely indebted to each one.
I think summer is my favorite season of all the seasons combined! Even though I have 10 days left of school to go, I still feel like it is so long away! But this weekend i got just a little nibble of what the summer is going to be like and i absolutely loved it! All weekend long i have just been with some of the most important people in my life just hanging out. We have been staying up late and going swimming and i just have enjoyed every moment of it! I know that tomorrow i have to go back to waking up early and learning but if i could just hold on to the moments i have had with these people for these next 2 weeks, i will be thoroughly happy.
You know those times in your life when your mind zooms out and you are kind of watching yourself in that moment and you think to yourself, I wish every day was like this moment right now. Those moments are what make life worth while. I have experienced a few of those in the past couple of weeks and I have been just thanking God for each one of them because every time I have been had some A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Christians all around me. Those moments have brought me closer to The LORD.
Right now in my life I have exactly 11 days left of school and I am thrilled! I have had a great semester and i cant complain about that but I am just ready for the summer to come. Personally I am really afraid of disappointing the people I love the most and I don't mean like kinda scared but I am really terrified of it. So the summer takes some of that pressure to always strive to do my best all the time, because that takes a toll after a while. Anywho, my plans for the summer are pretty standard; sleeping in REALLY late, the beach, hanging out with friends until the wee hours of the night, and just relishing every day worshiping God for the amazing things he has blessed me with.
