Starry Night

From the Birds that Sing, In the Tallest Trees.
To the Human Life, of you and me.
From the Desert Sands, to the place we stand.
He is God of All, He is Everything.


I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun.
Every Starry Night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only son, who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring, 'cause he is everything
'Cause he is everything

From the Autumn Leaves, that will ride the breeze
To the Faith it takes, to pray and sing
From the Painted sky, to my plank filled eye
He is God of all, He is everything


I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun.
Every Starry Night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only son, who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring, 'cause he is everything.

Ohhhhhhh (everything)

Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
I believe
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
I believe

I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun
On that Starry Night, He changed my life.
I'm giving it all to the only son who gave me hope when I had none.
So let the praises ring,
Ohhhh Let the Praises Ring

I'm giving my life to the only one who makes the Moon reflect the sun.
Every Starry Night, that was His design.
I'm giving my life to the only son, who was and is and yet to come
Let the Angels sing, that he is Heavenly

So let the Praises ring
'Cause he everything

This is one of my favorite songs. Hope you enjoy it!

Bible Study Lesson.....Sunday 9|26|10

Today, I was at church and we learned about Creation. We read through Genesis chapter 1 and then watched a movie of an artist who tells stories through sand. It was pretty amazing but the main thing that wowed me was how well he told the story. It is amazing on how everything God did was in his image and how we are made perfect in his eyes. I know how many times we read through this chapter but every time I read I seem to find one or two more things I didn't know or didn't realize before. This is what God created on each day.
Day 1-Created the heaven and the Earth, day and night
Day 2-Divided heaven from Earth
Day 3-Created the land, sea and vegetation
Day 4-Created the sun, moon and stars
Day 5-Created creatures, great and small
Day 6-Created mankind
Day 7-the day of rest.

Summer is Over!......School is Here!

Well I think my title just said it! I start school tomorrow and I am so excited!! My mom and I have ordered all the books and are ready to start a great year. I am taking one class this year on Fridays. I will be taking a science class. While I am taking this class I hope to learn more and fellowship with other Christians and make new friends! :)This year I would like to get closer to God, prepare for high school, and get closer to my parents and build a stronger relationship with them. I am so excited for this coming year! I hope everyone reading this has a great year also! :)

Hume Lake 2010!!! the past week my church group went to the amazing Hume Lake Christian Camp. I had so much fun! :)

The theme up there was Excuse Mai!?... which shows us our lesson that we learned. Which is how to live for Christ in a ME centered world. Our speaker Ron, was the best speaker I have listened to. I loved the visuals that he showed us on how much Christ loves us. One of the verses that pointed out to me that he read to us was:
2 Corinthians 5:14
"For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died."

This week at Hume Lake we had many fun memories.
Here is a list of what I did.
zip lining, kayaking, playing in the highschool volleyballl tournament as an 8th grader, spending time with all of my friends and, looking at God's wonderful creation!

A couple days before we left for Hume Lake my camara broke! :( But here is my favorite picture Brooke took on her camara.

Philippians 2:14-15

Do everything without complaining or argueing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generationin which you shine like the stars in the universe.

I was reading through Philippians last night and this verse really spoke out to me. So I hope when you read this verse it will speak out to you.

4th of July Fun! :)

Sunday we had a very fun fourth of July! My dad was working so we went to church just as the ladies! :) That was a whole bunch of fun! I love learning more about Christ and singing and worshiping him. We talked about the book of Philippians. Then I went to help with working with the younger kids! After church we were just hanging out around the house! I love doing that! :D

The best part about the day was visiting my dad. He was working at the airport right by the Fairplex. So we watched the firework show that the fairplex was doing. It was awesome! But it was cold! But we were all snuggled up!

This fourth of July was a lot of fun and I hope this week is as fun as Sunday!

Junior Nationals Tournament!

This past week I have been competing for Junior Nationals. For this tournament you have to qualify to play. The top 5 teams of Southern California made this tournament and one of those teams was my team! We arrived in Reno, Nevada, on Wednesday. We had 4 days of competition. (that is the longest tournament my team has ever been competing in) On Thursday we didn't play. We had a day just to hang out, watch some older teams play, and go the mall! :) That day was so much fun, just spending time with my teammates.

Our days of competition were so tiring we had to stay on a very tight schedule. The first day we had to play three matches. We won all three of them! I was so happy because if we won the two games the next day, we could place first in our pool! But then next day came and we won one of the games and lost the other! But we still moved onto the next round. After those two games my team and I went to go and see Toy Story 3! It was so great!

The third day my team went down...we lost two out of the three we played. That meant we didn't have a chance at winning the gold medal. But after that, we still tried to get the highest place we could. So we did! On the fourth and final day, we won both of our games, making us the champions of our division! I was so proud of my team! We also got a big shiny plaque!

Here are some pictures showing my trip!

Team Pic!

Lemonade -4- 75 cents

Today my sisters and I had a lemonade stand! It was so much fun! We started by posting up posters around our whole neighborhood. It was so tiring though. After that we were ready for business. We had a small turn out in the beginning but towards the end we had more and more people wanting some Buzzy Lemonade! Our total at the end was $38.00! We were so happy! :D It was so much fun that I would do it again! :)

Love NEVER Fails

Have you ever thought about this phrase? I have lately. Whenever I think about the phrase "Love Never Fails" I always think about Christ's unconditional love for us. God has done so many things for me and I have messed up so many more times, and he still loves me the same. I just think that is amazing! The fact that I am worshiping a God who cares for me that much is indescribable!

There are so many verses in the Bible that explain God's unconditional love for us and here are a couple:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[a] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands. - Deuteronomy 7:9

For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. . . - Psalm 37:28

I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. -Proverbs 8:17
Here are the lyrics to Love is Here by Tenth Avenue North. I hope you enjoy them.

Come to the waters, you who thirst and you'll thirst no more.
Come to the Father, you who work and you'll work no more

And all you who labor in vain
And to the broken and shamed

Love is here love is now
Love is pouring from His hands from His brows
Love is near it satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side
'Cause love is here

Come to the Treasure
You who search and you'll search no more
And come to the Lover
You who'll want and you'll want no more no more

And all you who labor in vain
And to the broken and shamed yeah

Love is here love is now
Love is pouring from His hands from His brows
Love is near it satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side yeah

And to the bruised and fallen
Captives bound and broken hearted
He is the lord He is the lord yeah

By His strifes He's paid our ransom
From his wounds we drink salvation
He is the lord He is the lord

Love is here love is now
Love is pouring from His hands from His brows
Love is near it satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side
Streams of mercy flowing from His side
'Cause love is here love is here

This song really speaks out to me. I hope it does the same to you!

Basically A Free Weekend!

This weekend is like one of the only weekends my family has had a free weekend since January. I know amazing! We have always had volleyball tournaments for three different players on three different teams. Its been crazy!

This weekend is going to be a whole bunch of fun. Tonight we are having a couple of family's come over. We are going to have a barbecue and going to watch a movie outside. It should be fun!

Tomorrow we are going to church as a family. (I love going to church) Then we are just going to relax after and have a great day spending time with each other. As you probably know Monday mostly every kid does not have school. But I do! I know it may sound weird but if I want to end school earlier that's what I got to do.

This is what I am doing this weekend and I am so excited!

Thanks for reading! See you soon! :D

Angel Game!

Yesterday I went to the best Angel Game ever! We went because of my friend Kayla and my birthday, which happened to be on MAY 14th! It was so much fun because we had a tailgate party before the game! At the game all of the kids received a free pillow case. (and yes i still consider myself a kid even though i am 13) The game was so much fun being with my sister Brooke playing volleyball before the game, taking pictures with eachother, and just watching the game! My family and I had to leave a little bit early from the game because i had an early morning the next day. But the final score was 12-3! GO ANGELS!

Here are some pictures:

My Fantastic Sunday =)

Yesterday I had a wonderful day! We went to church, and the lesson was amazing and then I went to work with the little 2 year olds! They are so cute! :) Then after my family and I went and played basketball. It was Brooke and I against my dad and my two younger sisters. Lets just say we did't do so good. (It's not fair when you have a 6'7 dad) :)

I love spending time with my family and one thing I love is just realaxing on the couch and watching some tv! After that we went over to my grandparents house and spent some time with them! Then we went to one of my favorite restraunts with my grandparents ISLANDS!!!!!!! That was a lot of fun!

My Tournament!!!

Yesterday I had a tournament and I am so wiped out from it. :) I arrived at the gym at 7:00 a.m. and left at 7:15 p.m.!!!!!! It was a really long day! But my team is in Division 3 out of 20 and Division 1 is the best. We got second in Division 3. I played like probably like 3/4 of the time! The position I played was middle blocker. Overall I had a really fun day!!

My Two Days of Volleyball

Today I had 1 of the best practices ever!!! (at least I thought) But I kind of hurt my shin and I have a tournament tomorrow so maybe that wasn't the smartest thing! :) But I was running after a ball and i ran into a chair (I know I am clumsy haha) and I fell on the chair and hit my shin. Right after that happened I really couldn't put any pressure on my leg but it made me feel good when on the next play I got an AWESOME, SWEET kill on my coach.

Tomorrow I have a tournament and I am kind of nervous about it because I don't know if I will get much playing time. At the same moment I love the sport and anytime i can get on the court I am sooooo excited and will do anything to help my team win and have an awesome time, doing my sport!!! So keep your fingers crossed and I will post on how my team does and how I do tomorrow or on Sunday.

My Tournament

This past weekend I played in a tournament for volleyball. We played at our home court so that was pretty cool. Nathan and Micol (my youth pastor and his wife)came to watch me play. I was a little disappointed because the game they came to watch I didn't play. :( But I played middle all around in the second and third game. In the thrid game I think I played the best because I made an awesome kill in the middle and served from
19-25. During that serving run I served on a game point and after a time out. (which you never want to miss your serve on those kind of plays) I think over all I played good and I can't wait until my next tournament. :)
