October 30th was my 15th birthday! Ahh! (!!!) And a VERY HAPPY ONE at that! 😀 Yeah, I know I’ve never given my age out- but I found that my Ma and Tory put my age out already so… So yeah… I’m now 15. That’s…. Crazy.
It was an absolutely amazing day. Oh my goodness.
We went to town- ate out at Cracker Barrel (the pizza place, with ‘New York pizza’ was closed… but no biggie!), made a quick stop at Pet Smart, and then got cupcakes at Gigi’s! 😀 Then we went to Walmart and shopped. ♥
It was seriously a great day!
I’m so glad we all had fun… 🙂 I’m so grateful for my family…. They all mean the world to me. 🙂 Even if we’re far away or under the same roof (which gets loud… I may add haha!), I love them all to bits. They gave me a great day- and Yahweh did, and He also gave me a WONDERFUL family. Or as I like to call us, a ‘bunch of crazies’. ;D
And, for my birthday…. I got a puppy! Welcome to the family, Waylon!
Now, actually; we got Hank Jr. first, before my birthday, for Rey. 🙂 And then Tory told us he had a brother and… That was my surprise! 😀 We went and got all kinds of puppy stuff for him… 😀
They are absolutely sweet pups- Australian Shepherd mixes. 🙂 We adopted them from a friend who works rescue and stuff; someone just dropped them off, I guess… 😦 But they enjoy their new home here!
So, yeah! Life has been very good. 😀 I had a GREAT birthday, the pups are sweet additions to our family, and we’ve all been doing very well! 🙂
And now time to ramble a bit, because hey- what else am I good at? ;D
One thing that has been huge for me is… I feel like Yahweh has completely changed my heart- I didn’t even know it needed changing! But I have been working with stuff in life and… A few days before my birthday, I forgave my sister Meesha. None of you know about her, or what happened, but that’s OK. I’ve just been struggling with her lately, the whole mess that went on, and how she left- and finally, how much she hurt me when she lived here… It’s been going on for a bit, off and on, since I read Joseph RiverWind’s book (find that post here!)… But I forgave her last week. It was so simple- I was blown away (still am!) at how different I feel inside! I was outside writing/editing Seek… And I just stopped in the story again and asked God ‘How does this end? What happens between these two?” And I realized I couldn’t write it because I didn’t know.And then Yahweh showed me that I was ready to forgive Meesha.
So praise be to Yahweh… I am so joyous, and I am very grateful to God… this peace only comes from HIM!
And another thing on my heart that we were introduced to is The Samaritan’s Purse- Operation Christmas Child. Now, if you don’t know what this organization is (or even if you do) go check them out because they are seriously a gift from God. Here’s the link to their website: Samaritan’s Purse
We are doing the Christmas shoe boxes this year- and if you feel like Yahweh has placed it on your heart, it would be amazing if you did, too!
Doing it.. touched me. We’ve seen how poor some places can be, and how these people can have nothing, or their lives can be so hard- and yet, they have hope. It truly amazes me.
The people out there that are waiting to hear God’s Word. To see the people receive these shoe boxes, and then see the love for Yeshua grow in them, and watch them share it with their families… It is absolutely AMAZING to me.
I pray to help people, even if it is behind the scenes and small steps at a time. I know first that God wants me to start small- with my own family, maybe my own community. But this is something He’s shown me… It really touched me, all of those people, and sharing His Love with them…
I will be doing a post about all of this farther, but for now I’ll say: God has put it on my heart. ♥
Acts 6:4 – But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
I am not doing NaNo this year, as I said before- however, I am editing my novel Seek and it is coming along very well! Yahweh continues to show me things and fill me up… If I only pray and seek Him. ♥
Well! I guess that’s it for now… I’ll be back to posting and stuff soon. 🙂 I’ve just been really enjoying life. ;D YHVH bless!
What about you? Are you doing NaNo or editing- how is it going? Do you like Australian Shepherds? Do you do the Christmas boxes? Talk to me, folks! ♥
