The Tip of the Iceberg

I'm not sure if I have talked about this yet, but I have recently joined a new Church.  I love it, and I feel so at home.. It's the type of place where you can see the fingerprints of God and is exactly what I need right now.  (I have had a trying past few months)  I'm the type of person who likes to be involved in the Church community, and one of the ways I have been getting involved is with the youth.  I will go on Monday night's to their meeting group and have spent some time with a few girls (so far).
I have also been discovering how hard it is for these kids to grow up as young men and women of God.  It is heartbreaking to see that in these Canadian junior high, and high schools there is so much oppression against individuals choosing to live for God.  I can only pray that they will stand strong in their faith, so that years down the road they will not end up lost and full of regret.  I also hope that I can be a good example, and that I can be there for them, through the strength of God.  --please pray for the young people of my church--

Tomorrow I am going to a 50th anniversary that is 50's themed!  I'm pretty excited, and have a cute outfit ready! :D   A bunch of us went and started decorating for it and the room looks phenomenal!  I think it is amazing to be going to a 50th anniversary party, to look at this couple who have beat the odds;  I only hope that the man I choose can share the same event with me one day, that is the greatest accomplishment I could have --a strong marriage and great family around me when I am aged.  


Have any of you seen the infomercial for this?!  --every time it comes on I can not help but think how stupid it is.  Can you imagine being the guy to discover the padded bum!?  Or what happens when the padding moves and you have a lopsided backside? --It is no wonder the women in our society have such poor self images when the media is constantly shoving solutions to 'imperfections' in our faces.  When will self enhancement go so far that natural beauty is no longer recognizable?  --I can't get into this rant right now.. I'm too tired to express all my thoughts.. ugh

That's all for today, write to you soon.

  1. Haha. My bro sent me that infomercial. I laughed so hard when I saw it; I could not believe it was legit.

    And, totally praying... things seem to be getting even worse up here too for that age group.
