A thought for the day

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
- John 3:16


VBS starts tomorrow, I've been praying about it for weeks. I think I'll walk down to my neighbors house and invite their kids to VBS, since they most likely won't bite my head off for offering free baby-sitting. I'm leading a group and I've also been praying about that, not only do I have to lead the kids I also have to direct the leaders that are under me. I just hope I can bring these kids to Christ and not be a hindrance to anyone in anyway.

God's love is amazing. He never gives up. He took her messed up life and He gave her a new one. That's what He has done for me. That is what He wants (so badly!) to do for you.

"So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household."” Acts 16:31
It's that simple. Now I'm going to go tell people about VBS, then I think Mom and I will go swimming. I do love it so.

kRISTY: Too late, I alreay have baaaaad swimmer's itch. I always thought that it was just under the swim suit that you got swimmer's itch, but the face that it's behind my ears and on my neck disproves that theory.

Mr. Tyler: It was nice, but not for swimming. It was deep, as in scary deep. I find it entertaining that you comment on posts that have nothing to do with what you are commenting about. But it's all good, you comment. Unlike /some/ of my friends.

Hey, hey, hey. I comment more than a lot of other people I know. I'm still waiting for a response from someone on my blog.

Besides, about you going swimming, my favorite lake is Martin's lake on Low Devide in the middle of the Olympics. It is so crystal clear that you can see the bottom when it is probably twenty feet deep. We jumped off a cliff into it and had tons of fun.

Yes, you do comment more than other people.

I am staying out of that debate you guys have going on, although I could debate on that subject if I wanted too.

That lake sounds pretty, but really scary... I think I would manage to break something or just injure myself. I have become even more of scaredy cat than before.
