So how has everyone been lately? :D If you'd like me to look at your blog just leave a comment and let me know which blog in case you have more than one. I've seen some people with like ten or fifteen blogs. Maybe a little less but it was a lot more blogs than I could ever handle.
Here's a random note: My favorite smiley ever is =3. It is an adorable kitty face. Am I the only one who has an odd obsession for text smileys?

A lot of people will ask why someone would want to hurt themselves on purpose. Well there are a few reasons. For some if you are in so much emotional pain, then the physical pain takes away the emotional pain momentarily. Like a quick fix. Others do it because they may be totally depressed and basically feel dead inside and it's like the physical pain reminds them they're still here. It may be hard to understand but life is confusing.
But cutting can be addictive. Like drugs or alcohol. Anyway, this is really scary to think about how I would hurt myself on purpose. It's confusing now but it seemed perfectly normal when I did it. If you know someone who does it, then please let them know you care about them. It does make a difference.
Anyway, have you ever heard of cutting? Or do you know someone who did it? Or maybe you've done it yourself? I'm not sure. I just thought everyone should be aware.

Well I really want to get into blogging again. And become friends with a lot of yew again. :D I have a good feeling about 2010. I hope its going to be a great year for all of us.
I have an topic that most people really don't touch on because either they don't understand or simply don't want to. But unfortunately it is very common. I'm going to make several posts about it starting in a few days. I really hope it informs some people about this topic. You may be wondering what it is. But you'll have to wait to find out. :)

So sorry it's been a few weeks since posting. Since it was summer I spent a lot of time doing things away for the computer. :) I try to make the little time I have of summer to make memories. Well since school will start my parents will end my social life and I will be home after school and on Sunday. Oh well, more time to post then. ;D
Well my birthday was last Monday. I wish I could say it was a happy day, but the end wasn't the greatest. It started out great because I got to go shopping. Which is one of my favorite past times. But later in the afternoon two of my dogs (both males) got into a fight and I was stupid enough to get in the middle of them. I got bit on my wrist by a 110 pound St. Bernard. To say it hurt would be an understatement. I feel really blessed that I wasn't hurt more.
Sorry if this was a boring post. I don't have much to say. I do believe I shall comment on some blogs. :)

I was watching tv the other day, and there was some game show (The Price is Right, I think) and everyone in the audience were wearing mask. It made me think of a really cool verse I've heard a bunch of times.
1 Thessalonians 2:5
"You know we never used false flattery, nor did we put on a mask to cover up greed, God is our witness."
In my opinion, I really think that verse it telling people not to act like somebody they're not just to get something they want. An example: I wanted to go shopping, but my dad said no. So I went to my mom and buttered her up until she took me. A weird example, but it's true. xD It's the same thing with friends. Don't be fake just to get them to like you or to get something from them.
Just something to think about. I'll try to comment on other blogs soon. Keep checking back!

Anyway, I've been thinking a lot lately about marriage. Yeah, I know, I think about random things sometimes, but they usually bring a good message to post here. Anyway, with me getting older and everyone else around me also, I get asked out once in a while. I say no, but sometimes I think twice. But then I will oddly think of ten years or so from now when I'm married. And when I look at my future husband someday, I want to see his face, not the faces of all my past boyfriends. And I know I will because heartbreak always leaves a scar.
Insanely random, yes, but I thought it was a nice thing to share. What about you guys? Have you ever thought about your future husband or wife?

Anyway, the title of this post personalities. Everyone, ot mostly everyone, has one of those, right? There is a lot of different types of personalities. There are some types of personalities that go with each other incredibly well, and others not so well.
For me, my personality is down-to-earth and real. I have a sense of humor, but I see seriousness in situations. I love to laugh and make noise and smile. Personalities I totally clash with are people who are happy all the time. No one can be happy all the time. It shows me that they're afraid to show emotion, which I think is a little fake.
Personalities I click with are fun, bubbly, talkative, and gives great advice. That's what I look for in a close friend. I love it when someone has an opinion. It gives me a chance to understand others opinions and to share mine.
God gave us personalities for a reason. He can use certain traits of our personalities to serve Him in an awesome way some day. Just thinking about that is so exciting!

But the thing is, we shouldn't ever have to feel lonely. Why? Because God is always right beside us. He is always watching over us and will help us in our times of need. Check out this verse to see what God says about His presence.
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said,“I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you."
Now isn't that such an awesome promise? And we should know that when God promises something, He always keeps it.

I know sometimes we don't really want to listen to God's voice if He is going to tell us something that we don't want to hear. But we still need to listen because we need His guidance. No matter what, we should always be open to listening to what God has to say to us. It can make a huge difference in the outcome of an important decision.
This is what the Bible has to say about us listening to God.
John 10:27 (New Living Translation)
My sheep listen to my voice, I know them, and they follow me.
That verse is short and to the point. To run it down, it means that if we are God's children, as in Christians, we are His sheep. As Christians, we know to listen to God's voice for guidance and help. Jesus knows what our needs and gives us help when we need it. He is like our shepherd and we are the sheep. We follow our Shepherd. Real sheep depend on their shepherd for everything including food, water, protection, shelter, and everything that makes their very existence possible. We need to do the same thing as the sheep. We need to depend on Jesus. He won't let us down.

The essay is about, you got it, love. Anyway, here it is.
Everytime a heart is wounded, it yearns for the gentle solace of love. A love so tender and sweet. So gentle and understanding as it longs to comfort your hurt and sorrow with everything in its spirit. It looks at you with sympathy and care.
Many look in the wrong places for this love. They try to find comfort in sex, drugs, cutting, friends, work, and even just by hurting others. This is not the way to find what you seek.
The love everyone craves is understanding when we mess up. It is supportive even after we have made a fool of ourselves. It cares for you even when you spit out words of hate and anger. It believes in you even when you don't believe in yourself. It loves you no matter what. It is everlasting.
Oh, don't you see how easy it really is to take this gift of love? Don't you know it hears your gentle and heartfelt cries for help? It longs to embrace you when you cry silently in the darkness. It yearns to see a smile upon your face through your tears and a twinkling of hope in yours eyes.
This is God's love.

1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
Isn't that cool? It basically means that it doesn't matter your age, God can still use you. Set a good example in the way you talk, in your life, in how you love, and staying pure. What's even cooler is that GOD DOESN'T NEED US. Yep. That's right. He doesn't need me or you or any other adult. Think about it. I mean, He's God, right? He can do anything. He uses us because he loves us and wants us to know that.
Now doesn't that make you feel special? I do. Next time God tries to use you, don't say, "This is too big for me. I can't handle it. God can use someone else." Nothing is too big for you with God on your side. God can do anything.

But, did you know that the Bible tells us not to worry? God wants us to chill out and trust Him to take care of everything including whatever we worry about.
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I recently went through the links on my sidebar and deleted the inactive ones. If you are in the YCF, please post so I can put up your link. Thanks!
So don't worry. Trust God to handle it.

I'm back, and still alive. I've been gone for such a long time. Why? I'm not sure. I do know I have changed so much over the past while. For the greater good, don't worry.
I started taking breaks from my blog because it hurt too much to post and talk about God. Everything in my life was becoming confusing. I started to rebel against my parent's rules. I have been sheltered all my life, and, while going to a new school, which is Christian and totally great, there were some friends of mine that we went to middle school. They weren't totally bad, but they had different views of things of they way I grew up and it started my little rebellion stage.
I couldn't understand all my parent's riduculous rules. No talking to guys on the phone even if they're just friends, no talking on the phone for more than twenty minutes, no guy friends on facebook, no having a boyfriend, no expressing my opinion in an argument, and things like that. It wasn't fun.
I shut God out of my heart for quite a while, and I went around feeling dead, lifeless. I didn't do anything bad like get into drugs or smoking or anything like that. But I had a major, major attitude problem. I acted so mean to everyone because I was bitter. All my friends had freedoms I didn't. Even the ones younger than me. It wasn't fair.
Slowly, with the help of my new friend named Tori, I began to become my old, care-free self. I realize now how blessed I am when it comes to my family. Such as: my parents are still together, I never go hungry, I have pets, I have a house, and so much more.
I'm so sorry for not posting, but I guess I did forget bewteen the transition. I am once again so sorry, and hope you will take me back into becoming my friend again. I will try to comment whenever I can. If you don't want to talk to me anymore, then I understand.

Sabrina always had a special way of rubbing against my legs when she wanted to get petted. When she was happy and content she would stick her claws in me a little bit over and over again. That was her way of telling me that she was happy and overjoyed. I woke up Saturday morning, hoping, praying that she she would be in her usual spot on my bed, right in between my feet. But, no, she wasn't, and that is what hurt most of all. I;ve had an incredibly tough week, so if it isn't too much to ask, please send up a prayer to me. I'm not sure if I will comment on all the blogs today, but I will do as many as I can. Thanks for reading.

First of all, chocolate is incredibly good.
It is HOT outside in Arkansas!
Chocolate is good.
My birthday is coming up on August 24!
Did I mention how awesome chocolate is?
Okay, those are the important announcements that could not wait at all. Lol :D I didn't take much to post so I'd have more time to comment! Anyway, thanks for reading my announcements! (Yes, even the stupid ones:) Lol!

3.) When someone picks their nose in front of me (ewww!)
2.) When someone keep staring at me for no reason (very weird!!!)
1.) When someone doesn't wear deodorant on a hot summer day in Arkansas! (The nastiest!!!)
Anyway, those are things I can't stand at all! But as Christians, even if we can't stand something, we need to endure it because God has a purpose for everything. Like what if there was a smelly, sweaty person new to your school and they haven't heard about Jesus yet? Then instead of avoiding them, try to befriend them (while breathing through your mouth.) lol. Anyway, that is basically it for this post in time ^_^. What are some of your major pet peeves? Do you like chocolate? Sorry, I just thought chocolate deserved more recognition ^_^ lol. Thanks for reading :D

"For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
This verse just hit me like a lightening bolt. As drastic as this sounds, it made me to want to stop feeling sorry for myself, and get outside on that crisp, cool morning, go to my tree (an huge oak tree in my five acre yard that I love to climb and just think), and write poetry praising God for everything I have and His love for me. If you're wondering about my friend who has started cussing, we are both just cooling off from our argument, I guess ^_^ I have a whole hour and a half on my computer so I am definitely going to start commenting. I'm at my grandmother's visiting for a few days, so I shall have Internet access :D
Anyway, I just wanted to say I guess I was inactive in the YCF for a little while, but now things are definitely back on again! I can't wait to comment on the thirty or so blogs I need to :P Lol. If I do not have your blog in my link list, then please let me know in a comment! Well, I gotta go and comment! Thanks soooo much for reading and for being patient ;)

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi to everyone and that after this post I am definitely going to comment on all the other awesome blogs! I really don't know how I can squeeze in blogging when I go back home, but I am leaving that up to God. Anyway, if you could, please pray for my friend, Jamie. She's. . . . . going through a tough time in her life. Sometimes I worry about her and how her relationship with God could be faltering. She's had a tought last few years with her parent's separation and a not-so-good experience with guys in the past. I think she is WAY too young to look for a boyfriend, but she has other plans:(
Anway, enough with the comment above. I have decided to have some monthly things on my blog such as maybe a monthly poem, YCFer of the Month, and maybe some other things when I consider them. Anyway thanks for reading and expect a comment from me in a little while! Thanks soooo much for bring incredibly patient with me! Thanks for reading:)
God bless you all!
