Went to the mall again today. I'm happy to report I only spent $8.50 on my grandma a Christmas present. I had a nice day there. I love wandering in the bookstore! I walked past CamiCakes at the mall and snapped a picture of the building and one of their cupcakes just cause they were eye candy. I didn't order any but I might buy one sometime. :)



 

I didn't order any of them but I just might one day!

Tonight was a good night too. Our youth group gathered at someone's house and had a bonfire. We ate and sang around the fire and then played games inside. The weather was 43 degrees! It was funny 'cause 3 firemen were there with a firefighter in our youth group and they were helping to add to the fire. They moved the logs with their fireproof gloves which I thought was cool.

Needless to say it was a relaxing night!

I've had Hayley Masters on repeat lately. She's a little known Christian artist with talent. Her latest EP Lead Me has a flavor of Pop fused with beautiful, thought provoking Christian lyrics. She has a voice and style similar to that of Taylor Swift, Adele and Britt Nicole and has hosted benefit concerts to help end human trafficking and lower suicide rates. She has reached out to so many people. She has commented on many of my statuses that supported her artwork when I had a Facebook page.

I admire artists that try to support humanity as well as give God all the glory with their talents. Check her out at your next stop to the iTunes Store!

Just blew $10 on a cell phone charm but it was so cute! It was a little fishy with pink gems on it. ^.^ I named him Hello Fishy! :)

At the zoo. Had no idea it would be a mini festival! There's people roasting marshmallows by fire while watching kids moon jump. I just saw some jaguars and snakes! And I ate Oreo Cake Balls. Basically like cake pops only a million times better!

Dear Friends,

I have enjoyed sharing my life and making new friends on here. However, I am afraid I have become addicted. While this can be cured by limiting my time, I feel I need to be off. I will not be deleting my account but I will be taking a vacation from social networking.

The Lord craves our waking early morning thoughts and I haven't really been spending time with Him. My pastor recently told us God is calling the Church to be more than just His servants because He wants to reveal His plan for our lives and for the world in us through friendship. The only way that can happen is if we develop a friendship with God. A servant is easier than friendship because we can say "Okay God, I did the checklist of stuff you want me to do. Bye!" But a friend spends time getting to know each other. They know what each other's plans are. A servant just does what he's supposed to and goes off his merry way.

I can't find out God's will for my life if I'm not willing to be friends with Him. The Word even says He doesn't want to just call us His servant, He wants to call us Friend. Best friends tell each other secrets and God wants to reveal some His people. I wanna find out some too! ^.^

With that said, please DO NOT unfriend me. I should be back within a few weeks, perhaps months if the Lord impresses on me to go longer. I have enjoyed getting to know most of you. Please pray for me as I try to find out about my mysterious illness as well as seek the Lord about for the career and ministry He has for my life. I will pray for you guys too. When I'm back, by faith, I know I will have a story of how the Lord can make a way.

Warm Regards,
Aleah Kate

Tonight my Youth Group and I went to Chick Fil A and did a Film Scavenger Hunt! It was loads of fun. First, we ate chicken and ice cream then we split into teams. The leader handed us a sheet of slightly embarassing things to do then released us in the Town Center parking lot with lots of stores to work on our fate. Just going to list all but one we did! :)

1) My friends and I did a hysterical commercial for a random car in the parking lot! We prayed the owner was not nearby...

2) We went and did a grocery cart race. I rode in a basket Allie pushed me and we raced against another person. It was hilarious! I was screaming 'cause I was so scared I was going to crash!

3) We found a group of kids and we asked them to help us with a movie. We then started screaming and was like,
"Hey! We saw you on TV! You were on iCarly! Aren't you on that Disney show? OMIGOSH! CAN WE HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH?" The blonde girls eyes lit up in joy. They felt like celebrities! All of them are in my book! ^.^
One blonde wore hot pink and glitter boots. My kind of girl. Loved her style! I don't care if I'm not even a teenager, I'm totally stealing it!
Side Note: We totally made that family's night! lol


4) Stephy drank a whole 20 oz. soda and had to do a burp. Live...on TV. (Okay, not really. The video was roling via iPhone and going to be posted on Facebook but you get the drastic humiliation.)

Had a great time! Can't wait for next time we don't have Youth Service and chill instead!

"There is a difference between thankfulness and praise. Thankfulness is us-centered; when things work out the way we want it to, we're thankful. Praise is God-centered; praise means becoming aware of God in your life right now."

Don't Quit

Oct. 11th, 2012 09:12 am

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit--
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.




Life is queer with it's twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
As many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow --
You may succeed with another blow.




Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown.




Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit --
It's when things seem worst you mustn't quit.
