Ooh, oh! *raises hand* I have a prayer request!

Hi guys! :D Look at me posting almost everyday, I'm proud of myself. :D Just kid...But yeah, to the point.
I have a prayer request I'm asking of you guys. Some of you guys know me in person and know that I've been kind of struggling with a stomach/digestion problem. And even those that don't know me in person, if you've kept up with my blog since way before, you should know what I'm talking about. ;)
Well, it takes away a LOT of my appetite. If I get sick I won't want to eat more than I can survive on basically. But I've been on medication and just recently (last Friday maybe), I had this sudden urge to eat everything I saw in my sights. And, yes, to some people that's a very bad thing, but for everyone that saw me and KNEW how weird this is--it was great. I had my entire appetite I had more than a year ago before my gastritis started happening. I've been actually losing weight through this, and it's gotten a little scary at times, but prayer helps a lot. I've been constantly reminded how great God is when he answers my prayers. =]
ANYWAY, Sunday I wasn't feeling so hot, and I didn't eat much, but yesterday was a little better. And I'm asking for prayer that I get my appetite back again. It was a great feeling that I could eat till my stomach was full and I didn't have to freak about getting sick. =D

BY THE WAY, I've only noticed that a couple of you have visted T4G's/Bryce's blog. Her Scavenger Hunt his gonna start soo nand hse needs a couple more participants! You don't even need to have a blog in order to do it. She's provided her e-mail, go ahead and just ask to join. Stranger or no stranger she'll welcome you anyway! :D
(Besides, I need a little competetion and ~Prism~/DoT/aGoMC is the only one that knows how competetive I can get. ;) :D)

Have a great week,
~Bookie

P.S. Now I have to go get ready to dissect a Crayfish!! BLECH. We have Biology today....*sighs*

My experience....At a Greek festival and a cathedral. :P

TODAY is Sunday. And not only did I go to church--but I was also taken to a Greek festival.... :D And it was interesting--but different.

The moment I get inside the building/church/cathedral, still in my church attire, I find that it's CROWDED with people. I was starving, but there were so many people, and so this lady, my sister, and I looked some jewelry (while my cousin did some other stuff). And I'm not going to go on about how unigue and pretty some of the rings, necklaces, and bracelets were...But Im going to tell you something EXTREMELY interesting (and I guess not good to Chirstians, like me--but I was just learning. *HOMESCHOOL MOMENT*):
There was SO much jewelry, but most of them had a specific design like each other. And that design was a solid color, and then a dot in the middle of it.
And so this lady (my friend), P, asked about it with some lady there at the table, and the lady said "Oh, that's an eye! If you wear a bracelet with that, it just shows that it's protecting you."
WHA?!?!

WELL, then everywhere I went besides that, I kept seeing tons of beautiful jewelry, and then amidst the many bracelets and necklaces, I would see some specifically with that design, just in different colors. A while later it started freaking me out. :P The superstition people used to have and have now....

The second thing I noticed was how colorful everything was! It was beautiful... I'd love to visit there Greece someday, but I don't think I'll ever get that chance. Oh well!

THIRD thing, that was also itneresting/not good...Was I went inside the cathedral next to it (that was also part of the festival), and this was my first time.
I was pretty stunned.

It was BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I had never been in one before, and I was like "WHOA".
So we sat in there for a while, just looking at the colors and whatever. The ceiling was so high, there were pillars everwhere. It was COOL. And then I noticed tons of candles...I mean TONS. And when we finally started leaving, I asked why there were candles, because I didn't know what they were all about. I've seen them in movies, but I neevr thought to ask about them. No one explained it to me. But P did. She told me that they were for worshipping idols and such....I was like, "Oh?" And then she told me to walk with her to the foyer to leave, but when we were, she walked slowly and deliberately and told me to watch the man.
I had seen all the picture of people/angels/saints/whatever, and I was like why are those in here?? But when P told me to watch the man, I finally realized what was going on. They'd light a candle, set it down in some sandy part, and then he'd go up to this picture that was angraved or just there on some little stand/set and he'd do that cross motion Catholics do, and then kids the picture.
I just stood there.

I hadn't ever realized....I mean, I knew idolotry was still going on--I just never....thought I'd SEE it.

Ex 20:3-4 (NIV) "You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below."


Goodness gracious...I mean, I couldn't do anything about it, but I was like "WHA?"
The first time I saw him do it, it shocked me. Second time, right before I left, I wanted to smack him. The church was beautiful, but what went ON in that church... Stupid stuff.
God is the only one you should worship. Period. There's nothing more to say.

But other than that, I had a great day. :) Just thought I'd share with you my experience. :D

ACK. Tomorrow's MONDAY! *grimaces* Have a great week--do well in school kids! (*looks at self*)

Mhmm

Mhmm, you DID come to the right blog!
I just changed my template and picture, that's all. :D
I had three options, and when this one's finally gotten tiresome to me...I'll change it. The black and white one was really nice (thank you, Bryce), but I needed a new one for now. :D

I sincerely hope you like it--and if you do, TELL ME! Mucho appreciation :D

I also added words...because I have no idea if anyone ever reads my About Me...so yeah. :D

Prism/aGoMC, I'll get closer to #100..this is what? My 95th post?? :D

Have a great day,

Indescribable

I have a NEW favorite song/Christian-song! :D lol. So I know this is my second post of the day, but I was jsut reminded the name of the song, and I jsut listened to the song, and now I'm going to find more by him....
But at my church's Missions Conference, we kept sining a bunch of songs/hymns. And one of them stood out a lot. Maybe not to the other people, but I LOVED the lyrics. Except, the thing was, this was my first time hearing it, and I didn't know if I'd forget the name, the lyrics, AND the song. You have to remember, even if I've said this before, that I have a TERRIBLE memory. And I mean, no lie, I can forget five minutes after you tell me whatever....I have forgotten tons of things, and this was what made me kind of upset while I Was singing the song. Would I remember ANY part of this song? So when I realized that this part was the last verse to the song, I sang it over and over in my mind even when the congregation was singing it slower and only once.
GUESS WHAT?! I remembered that last part!!! :D lol. I later on found out the name, and I listened to it again. But yeah, you may have heard it before, so you'll probably agree with me how amazing this song is. =]



From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same
You are amazing God
You are amazing God



WELL, I loved it!
~Bookie :D

My crazily wonderfultasticallishicouslyness week!

Hip-hip-hooray! I had an amazing week last week. :) Why, is your question?? :D
1)I had no school for five days.
(Why did I have no school for five days?)

2)Thursday was my birthday!

And I'm such a girl, I asked for jewelry, nailpolish, and sunglasses. And I got them! :D haha--oh well


3)Friday was PACE, my co-op. But it was also a terrific day because that was the beginning of our Missions Conference!!!

Which was amazingful, we had a certain pastor there. And he was great!--(Except I didn't get to hear Friday night's wonderful sermon...because something happened. ~EMBARRASSING MOMENT~ *sighs*)


4)Saturday was VALENTINE'S DAY!

And oh gosh, even months before February, I was dreading that day. BUT I still had fun. I didn't dread it as much because it was still the Missions Conference!! :D Which was still amazingful.


5)Sunday, my good friends, was church!
I love Sundays :)

6) PRESIDENTS DAY!!!!

I found out some people weren't doing school on that day (other homeschoolers), and my siblings and I were able to convince my mom that one more day without school wouldn't make much of a difference! :D So my friend, who I'll nickname Shlee, came over. =]



So yes, awesome week. And now I just finished my school.....So I'm in for a not so fantastic, but still fantastic (because God made it) week. haha
_____
On another note--WHO IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD HAS NOT VISITED BRYCE/Twin4God's BLOG?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
And--WHO IN THE UNIVERSE HAS NOT DECIDED TO PARTICIPATE IN HER SCANGER HUNT?!?! I think I'm gonna change my poll to vote on her Scavenger Hunt... Guys, she asked for fifteen people, only a few (including me) have decided to participate in it (including GoMC for sure, and I'm not sure about some of you others).... But this isn't just to get people to visit her blog--trust me, she has people--but it's a way to have fun. All of us just sit around on our stupid chairs reading posts and writing them. It's time to have some MORE fun! It won't last forever. She changed some of the rules around, so I'm giving you guys the link to her updated version. And trust me, you may think these rules are great, but I kinda liked the older version. It was more challenging. :D
LINKS:

YCF and other

I have added a link to the YCF picture, guys! The question is: Where does it lead to? WELL it leads to the YCF blog! WOO!
We have so far 25 active and non-active members of the YCF. And I'm thrilled to have been in it for almost hte beginning (I believe--maybe not :P).

BUT there's a matter Araken brought up and if you haven't visted the YCf blog recently OR his blog, you should go! He's in my blog roll.
He's brought up the matter of having a leader or council. And I think it's a very good idea to have a YCF council. *nods*

BUT it's up to the other YCF members to vote on it...So we'll see.

ALSO, we have 2 NEW members! YAY. They'll be announced over the blog.

Have a great day...!
