My bday wasn't over!!!

The last post I published was on Monday....I had no idea what was in store for me!!

Monday afternoon Daddy and I went to District Court, and had my last name changed.  Now I don't have my bio last name starring me in the face.

When Daddy got home he told me it was time to go driving.  I don't have my license yet...I will probably be getting it late April early May.  Now let me explain something to you...Daddy never takes me driving before dinner.  Why?  Let me just say that when he get's hungry he starts getting a lil' cranky :P  Anyway...Daddy and I left at about 5:15 and drove all over!  I had no clue what was going on, but Daddy didn't lead on to anything!

Meanwhile, back at home, Momma, Syd, and Ian were decorating the house with party decorations.  Early that morning, Momma had started preparing dinner early.  Not thinking straight, I thought she was getting ahead so we could have a full night of family time.  Nope...I was wrong... 5:45 all of our churc…

Birthday blessings

Surprises...I absolutely love surprises!  Now I will admit, I may try to find out what it is, but I love the feeling you get when you are getting closer to finding out what it is :D  April 5th I celebrated my 18th birthday, which was the most memorable day of my life!  I hope you all enjoy all the pictures I've posted :P

April 3: We went to church, and had the most incredible service ever!  Preacher felt led to allow everyone give testimony of what the Lord has been doing in their lives.  Our unintended revival service was 2 hours and 15 minutes of nothing but lifting the Lord up in praises and thanksgiving.  At the end, everyone was crying, hugging each other, telling them how much they loved the other person.  While my friend played "Amazing Grace" during the altar call, I became a blood-bought child of the LORD!

April 4: I spent all day cleaning my very messy room...Mom said it needed to be done before the next day.  After that, Momma, lil' D, Sydney and I went to t…

I will never be the same

I grew up going to church, and like most children, I knew the song “Jesus Loves Me” – I even went to a Christian daycare.  Although I had grown up hearing about God and Jesus, I didn't know that I was a sinner damned to Hell.  My mother became a Christian in 1997, but as a new Christian she didn't know exactly how to live out her faith (God was slowly working on her).

When I was eight years old, my mother led both me and my dad to the Lord.  I truly believe that I became a part of the family of God that night.  However, as a young child, I believed that the Christian walk was going to be a bed of roses.  I have always had an evangelistic heart – I began witnessing to everyone (I was even sent to the principles office for witnessing on the playground).  At eight and a half years old I gave a piece of my heart to my good friend, only to have him break my childish heart a few days later.

At nine years old, God led me to trusting Him with my heart.  December 27, 2009 I vowed to rema…
