Just So Sad. . .

I found out about this through Carolyn McCulley's blog. (Click here* to read her post.) It shows just how wicked this world is. Please read this article* by Christianity Today and be in prayer for these women.

So as you can tell from the ticker above, my family and I are getting ready to make a trip back to the US.

Yep, we're goin' home for a few weeks!

We'll be visiting family and going to the General Assembly for the Church of God. And there will be quite a bit of traveling involved! The plane flight from Brussels to Atlanta Georgia is about 8-9 hours long. And then we take another flight up to Kentucky. It makes for a loooooong day! Believe me!

Then when we get there we'll spend the night there and then we have to make a 6 hour trip down to Tennessee the next day. We'll stay there that night and the next then we drive back to Kentucky (yep, another 6 hours.) Needless to say, by that weekend, we'll be very, very tired!

We will also be taking other trips while were there too.

So we would really appreciate your prayers for: a safe trip to the US, safe travels while we're there, and a safe trip back to Belgium!

I hope to have some other posts up before I leave. But while I'm gone, there will probably not be very many (if any) posts. I'll have access to internet but it will be the dial-up version. So I won't be able to spend much time on the internet. Maybe from time to time I'll write something on Microsoft Word and quickly copy and paste it to blogger. . . . .we'll see!

Oh! And I finished Chemistry!!!!! YAY! Got it done!

Okay. A while back, I said something about showing you a picture of the definition of a German "pepperoni" pizza. (Actually it happened because we can't speak the German language. If we were able to speak German, it most likely wouldn't have happened so it was really our fault.) Well. . . .here 'tis:

LOL! We had a good laugh over this!!!

And here are some pictures of the birds! That is the mother with the babies (the dad takes turns sitting on the nest with her). Her name is Jolie (it is French for pretty).

And here is a pic of my birthday cake. . . .(those are chocolate "shoes" on the cake)

And I know some time ago, I posted a picture of myself. But I blurred my face. Well, here is a picture of me not blurred with my birthday cake. . . .(that's my dad's arm in the picture too!)

Well, hope I didn't bore you too bad!!!

Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty--he is the King of glory.

"Jesus Loves Me"

Have you ever just stopped and realized, “Wow, God loves me!”? We sing about it in church and hear it preached. As kids, a lot of us sang the song "Jesus Loves Me." (I sang it all the time. My parents would grab the video camera and a lot of the times would ask me to sing "Jesus Loves Me." Now that is a great song. I have nothing against it. And I believe (actually I know) Jesus loves me. But it’s kinda like why couldn’t I have been asked to sing some other songs too? Maybe the B-I-B-L-E, Father Abraham, etc.. . .LOL! Anyway, back to the post….) But I think too often we forget the true meaning of it.

Jesus loves me is something we say and know in our minds, but do we grasp the meaning with our hearts? Is it ingrained into our souls? Or is it just a thought that passes through our minds every once in a while that never truly sinks in?

In God’s Word over and over He shows us his love and mercy. And when you think about how wicked this world is and how wicked our hearts are, you begin (Note that I said begin. We can never fully grasp the meaning of His love. Maybe in Heaven, but certainly not while we’re here on earth.) to see and understand just how much He does love us. Think about it: God is a God who is perfectly holy. There is no sin in Him. We are wicked and deceitful. Stained filthy with sin. But He still loves us. And He proved it by dying for us. So that we could be made holy and pure. So that we could enjoy eternity with Him. Now can you begin to see His love? Can you begin to understand it?

Why did God tell us in His Word about His love for us? Because He wants you and me to know that He loves us! God wants us to realize and understand that!

So, whether you are just getting up out of bed or are in the middle of the day or are getting ready to go to bed. Stop and just think about His love. Let the realization of it just soak in for a minute. ‘Cause you know what? He loves you!

(Note: This post was written for my Christian readers. If you aren’t a Christian, I want you to also realize that Jesus loves you too. And He wants to forgive you and save you, but you have to ask Him. If you would like to find out how to get to know Jesus, please, please click here. Deciding to follow Jesus is the best decision you could ever make! If you have any questions at all about Jesus, please email me. I would be more that happy to answer them!)

Baby Cockatiels

Our cockatiels had babies! I didn't tell you about them setting on the eggs earlier becase we weren't sure if they would hatch. But they did! One hatched I suppose it was yesterday and I think another one hatched I guess it would have been yesterday or today. Not sure. They are outside in an aviary, so we can't keep that good of an eye on them. There is one more egg that should hatch later today or tomorrow.

I don't have any pictures of them yet.

Bible Verse (Acts 1:10-11)

They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."

Acts 1:10-11

Dear Hannah-Liz

Today is a very special day, as I'm sure you know. It is your 16th birthday! Now, I'm not going to get into some sad sappy story of how great it is to have a friend like you, and how much your friendship means to me, because you already know all that - I hope. I'm here to remind you that today is your day. A day where I want you to have fun; a day to remember forever! I know that I'm very far away, but I will be celebrating the day with you and thanking the Lord for you and your friendship!

Philippians 1:3-6

"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

Hannah-Liz, happy 16th birthday!! May you have many more!

Love, friendship, and blessings,
A Friend

I'm bAAaack!!!!

It's soooooo good to be back.........Long car trip.....Yep......Very long!

Well, someone did guess where I went! (Lol, Lindsey! I didn't visit Kaitlin! *smile and wink*:)The correct answer is...........Germany! Un huh. Germany. Kristin, you guessed right!

And no, this was not a vacation for me. I took my school with me........because in a few weeks we are off on another trip. And I don't want to have to take my school with me on this one.

I hope to be able to get back to regular posting again. And hopefully I will be able to post a picture showing the German definition of "pepperoni pizza!" (When my parents ordered the pizza, they had trouble communicating with the person. So there was a little.......ummmmm..........misunderstanding........lol!.) We had a good laugh over this one!

(And Kaitlin, thanks for posting on Drs. Fun 'n' Bones for me! Really appreciate it!)
