Saturday, we went White Water Rafting at the New River! It was SO much fun! It was great team building, as well as stress relief! I made so many memories that day!
Sunday was kind of sad. Actually, really sad. It was our last day in Arnoldsburg. We held our church service in New Life Baptist Fellowship for possibly the last time, because the church is for sale. After church, we went back over to the park for the baptisms of decisions made that morning as well as the ones made Friday. But right before the Baptisms, Nan needed to take Bell, JJ, Jess, and Erica home. It was so sad, and so hard to see them leave. They had become a part of our family that whole week. Most of the group went to the Baptisms while Sara, MK, Chelsea, and I stayed back to say goodbye. We all cried, and I miss them terribly. I cannot wait to get back to see them again! After they left, we had a huge hotdog cookout with everyone from the whole week of Bible School. It was fun, and we got to spend some time playing with the kids. Around two, we had to start heading home. We had a seven hour drive ahead of us. So we said our goodbyes for the year. It was hard, the people up there become so much a part of you and who you are. I can't wait to go back. That place, those people... it's indescribable. The work of God was great this week, and I can't wait to see what else he has in store!

I am smarter than I seem.
I am accepted by the only one who matters.
I am pretty weird, but that’s okay with me.
I am important to at least one person.
I hope that one day I’ll be everything I’m meant to be.
I hope that one day I’ll be a mommy.
I hope that one day I’ll be able to accept me for me.
I hope that one day I’ll make a difference to someone.
I pray that one day cancer will be gone.
I pray that God will touch the lives of others through me.
I pray that I’ll find someone someday.
I pray that my tomorrows will always be bright.
I laugh because it feels amazing.
I laugh at myself, it’s healthy.
I laugh so that I don’t cry sometimes.
I laugh because happiness is bliss.
I cry when my heart breaks… and yes, it does break.
I cry when I’m angry.
I cry when I can’t take it anymore, and then I’m okay again.
I cry when life is just too beautiful to handle in one emotion.
I love the way the rain smells.
I love the idea of being in love, even though it hurts.
I love being sixteen, and learning what that means.
I love being a daughter of the King.
I hate arguing over pointless things.
I hate complaining.
I hate ignorance.
I hate fear.
I wish I knew what was going to happen next for me.
I wish I were better. Just in general.
I wish people were happier more often than they are.
I wish people realized that life’s little things add up to life’s big things.
I dream that one day, I’ll impact a child’s life.
I dream that one day, I’ll carry my own baby.
I dream that I’ll be an author one day… on the side that is.
I dream that I’ll grow into the lady God has planned.
I am not perfect, not even close.
I am loving my life.
I am trusting.
I am growing, and changing, and becoming who I’m supposed to be.
