One Week...That's All

I have one week...That is all.

One week of running free before I must go back to the grasps of learning. One week to do all those things I intended on doing during the summer...not before it ended.  One week left before the pencil scratches the paper, etc.One week.

But I'm ready. Summer break helps us all get rejuvenated and relax and spend time with family. To do things that you most likely wouldn't be able to do during the school year. But we all must go back. And I'm ready.

I'm ready to read books, write papers, and learn new things. To start sports again and study. I'm excited about starting my new Biology class with some other home-school friends and do some other things. I'm ready !

 So, I guess it's okay that summer is almost gone. I'm not saying it's over, yet. I still have one week, then a weekend vacation to a water park before school starts on Monday.But, I'm ready to go back.

How about you ?

{Gold Rush Fever}

It's a Gold Rush !

Seriously it is...VBS Gold Rush 2011:)

                                                                       Bailey(left), me ( right).

Our whole church is donning our cowboy hats and boots, and trying to figure out a Texan accent. The classrooms are decorated woodland scenes with a cabin in the corner...And there is a "mine shaft" going down to the basement of our little country church.

All of the volunteers were ecstatic to start the VBS week, and I'm sure the children were anticipating the Gold Rush VBS, too.
                                                                    Bethany( pictured right), me (left).
The children started arriving, and soon VBS was off to a start! The night quickly passed and before everyone knew it, we were watching the ending skit .

And so, for the next week my life will be filled with screaming, laughing children, crafts and games, and we can't forget the puppet skits along with another long list of things :) What are you doing, and how is your week going ?

P.s. While a certain girl was getting ready for vbs, she put on some sunglasses. And as you can see...the results:)

Much love !

Just Learn to Dance...

  I was watching the rainstorm pass from the window. And as I sat looking, I asked myself this question...Why do so many people despise it when it rains ? Why can't they just learn to dance in it ?

Whenever I go somewhere after a rain-fall or while it's raining I hear people reporting their thoughts about that "horrible" rain ! Or they say we don't need it . It seems that people always look over the beautiful side of rain .

A shower of rain starts with one drop...And in that drop there is many different things.One drop starts a nourishing rain where all will get replenishment .One drop will start a shower of droplets, and you may see a rainbow after it. One drop starts a rain-fall which will give new life and vigour . It will make the birds sing, the bees buzz, the flowers will bloom even more, the tree leaves will wave in the wind and make a sort of song...And all of it started with one drop. And the One who made that one drop,started everything. It wasn't just that one drop that did it was the Lord God.

So, The earth rejoices at a rain-fall... So why don't we?

We need to dance in the rain ! We need to rejoice that it is here...We need to be thankful, even if we think we don't need it .

Throw off you shoes get your feet a little wet, grab an umbrella go outside and sing with the rain, throw on a raincoat and go...DANCE .  

I've learned to dance in the rain...I love it when it rains, even if it does spoil your specially planned day. Just to hear the rains soft pitter patter as it hits the ground and pavement. The smell of it, and the knowing that it's giving life. The greenness after a rain. The power of a rain-shower, or the gentlest of it. All of it gives me happiness. So learn how to dance in it, and you'll soon find out that you love it .

God made rain for you and me, why not appreciate and enjoy it ? God loves it, I'm sure, otherwise He probably wouldn't have made it .So why not love and learn to dance in it ? Our God He loves us so much, and He created that one drop because He knew we needed it . So DANCE in it...And PRAISE the Lord !
