Something I love...

I have started a blog post 3 times and erased it every time....I am at a loss at what to blog about! lol. I hate feeling like I have the most boring retarded blog on the planet so when I feel like no one will care what I write I would just rather not try to make it interesting! :P Sorry.

So, My bestie just reccomended "just writing about something I love"...

I love a lot of things. First of all, My Savior! I love Him for coming from Heaven to be born in a dirty stall. I love Him for living His life teaching and serving others. And I love Him for dying on the cross and enduring scorn and contempt and beatings all beacause he loved me and wanted to make a way for me and all other sinners to get to heaven!! I love him for rising again on the 3rd day. And I love him for preparing a home for me in heaven where I will live eternally praising Him. I love Him for loving me. That is what I love the most.

Secondly, I love my family!! God has given me the most amazing family ever on the face of the planet! I have brothers and sisters and parents who all love the Lord and care about encouraging each other and teaching their children how to grow and learn and live for Christ! And on top of all that, they are a dang fun group of people.

Everywhere else I love way to much to post, but I will try to list a few,
I love my friends, I love, Summer, I love Snow, I love Springtime, I love butterflies, I love laughing, I love togetherness, I love flowers, I love Music, I love singing, I love church, I love deep brown eyes, I love sunshine, I love Colors, I love my bird, I love converse....I think I had better stop. :D lol. <3 <3 <3

God has given me a wonderful life to live. I get discontented when I think about all the things I wish I could do, and there are a lot of them, but when I actually stop and think about what God has done for me it all vanishes. I will always have dreams that I wish with almost all of me would come true, but I can leave that to God. If those things are His will for my life then they will come when He wants them to! If not, then I just need to trust that He knows what is best for me and to be content where He has me.
Luvz and Merry Christmas 2 all of you!

The Giving Tree

Once there was a tree, and she loved a little boy.
And every day the boy would come,
And he would gather her leaves,
 and make them into crowns and play king of the forest,
He would climb up her trunk,
and swing from her branches,
and eat apples.
And they would play hide-and-go-seek.
And when he was tired, he would sleep in her shade.

And the boy loved the tree...

Very much.
And the tree was happy.

But time went by.

And the boy grew older.
And the tree was often alone.

Then one day the boy came to the tree and the tree said,
 "Come, Boy, come and climb up my trunk and swing
 from my branches and eat apples and play inside my shade and be happy."
"I am too big to climb and play," said the boy.
"I want to buy things and have fun. I want some money. Can you give me some money?"
"I'm sorry," Said the tree, "but I have no money. I have only leaves and apples. Take my apples, boy, and sell them in the city. Then you will have money and you will be happy."
And so the boy climbed up the tree
and gathered her apples
and carried them away.
And the tree was happy.

But the boy stayed away for a long time...
and the tree was sad. And then one day the boy came back and the tree shook with joy
and she said "Come, Boy, climb up my trunk and swing from my branches and be happy."
"I am too busy to climb trees," said the boy. "I want a house to keep me warm," he said.
"I want a wife and I want children, and so I need a house. Can you give me a house?"
"I have no house," said the tree. "The forest is my house, but you may cut off my branches and build a house. Then you will be happy."
And so the boy cut off her branches and carried them away to build his house.

And the tree was happy.

But the boy stayed away for a long time.
And when he came back, the tree was so happy she could hardly speak.
 "Come, Boy," She whispered,
Come and play."
"I am too old and sad to play," sad the boy.
"I want a boat that will take me far away from here. 
Can you give me a boat?" 
"Cut down my trunk and make a boat," said the tree.
 "Then you can sail away....and be happy." 

And so the boy cut down her trunk...

And made a boat and sailed away. 
And the tree was happy. 

But not really.

And after a long time the boy came back again. 
"I am sorry, Boy," said the tree,
"But I have nothing left to give you-My apples are gone."
"Me teeth are too weak for apples," said the boy. 
"My branches are gone," said the tree. "You cannot swing on them-"
"I am too old to swing on branches," said the boy. 
"My trunk is gone," said the tree. "You cannot climb-"
"I am too tired to climb," said the boy. 
"I am sorry," sighed the tree. "I wish that I could give you something... but I have nothing left. I am just an old stump. I am sorry..."
"I don't need very much now," said the boy. "just a quiet place to sit and rest. I am very tired." 
"Well," said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could, 
"well, an old stump is good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down. Sit down and rest." 
And the boy did. 
And the tree was happy.

Guess what?! It snowed !!! Now, it officially feels like Winter. <3 <3 <3

:D Isn't it fantastic? That is not a fantastic photo. lol. but I am not a photographer and our camera is really crummy. 

Wanna see our Christmas Decorations?  If not then you had better close your eyes while you scroll down...

This is our "big" tree! We can't have a real big one 'cause we don't have room for it and it wouldn't last very long in here with wood heat. We are hoping to get a tall prelit atificial one someday though!!

This has the baby ornaments on it and some of the special old ornaments.

My baby ornament.

The other trees! They are so cute. :D I did those all by myself!! lol. <3


So, the Christmas concert went really well! It was looong...but there are a lot of classes. And there was an intermission in the middle... which made it ok. :D The little kid classes were all before then the older classes after.  Our Messiah songs were so much fun! It is so awesome to play them with the choir! It is loooovely.
I am bummed about Orchestra being off for the rest of December...I will miss it. But there is SO much going on this month!! I have a lot to look forward to! It is very exciting.
This is prolly the dummest most boringest post on planet earth...but I did three Algebra lessons in a row today and I will blame anything dumb or boring or insane that I do tonight on all the brain cells that were fried trying to figure out how much "x" is when you mutiply it by the opposite of "b"...*sigh* Don't laugh smart people. I almost died.
I better get off the computer...It is almost dinner time and Dad and Dean are about to get home and the house needs cleaned up. <3
