Other Blogs...

      These are some awesome blogs from some friends and family of ours that you should check out:

Bursts of Sunshine is a blog that our older sister writes and is one of the best blogs ever! Sunshine is the coolest, funniest, most amazing older sister we have and is such a good example of Christ in the way she lives her life. So, what are you waiting for? Check it out!! Oh, and if you want to read more about our family and such, go to our family`s blog, room for more.

Another excellent blog you want to see is Dingy, But Loved. This blog is written by our very good friend, Bugg, with whom we make hilarious skits and reeeeeeaaaaally random inside jokes. We always have a blast together. So, if you`re looking for a blog written by someone with an awesome sense of humor, and with a passion to shine for Jesus, this is the one. =) Oh yeah and you should also look at their family`s blog, Hennhouse Happenings.

You should also see the blog, Meant to Shine. This one is written by our sister in Christ, Cassandra. She is also a very good friend of ours and a great example of Christ to us. She has this incredible, contagious desire to be a light in the world`s darkness and always seems to be giggling about something. ;) And I also recommend their family`s blog, Unto Him We Live.

Another one you should definitely look at is 80 Billion. This blog is written by Belle, who is one of Sunshine and Cassandra`s good friends. She is also the cousin and friend of Bugg. She is a very godly person who strives to defeat Satan in the everyday fight. And you will just have to see why she calls her blog what it is. :)


    Whew. Well, I hope you look at all these fantastic blogs. There are probably some I`m forgetting but that`s about it for now. Have an awesome day and remember, be a twinkie not a ding-dong. =)

Thoughts on a Friday Night

It is Friday night and I got an extra shot in my starbucks drink so I am very awake and ready to post. This post is just me thinking of different things tonight. Thinking about the insane summer we've had. Thinking of how God loves us even though we don't deserve it. And one of the ways He shows His love for us is through affliction. Well, why does He do that?! we wonder. Why doesn't He just shower us with blessings and say, I love you? I'm not saying He doesn't do that, but if that happened all the time, why would you need to depend on God? You could say, "I'm doing great on my own. I don't really need God in my life."

Oh, but you do!! He's the reason you're breathing right now! He's the One in control of your life! So I think one of the many thousand reasons God afflicts us is to remind us that we desperately need Him and that we need to trust Him. Without Him, we are nothing and we can't do anything on our own strength. He is our great God and our Rock. Here's a few lyrics to a song I wrote about pain and affliction in our lives:

It might seem like the pain's too much
But God is just showing His love
He'll give you the way of escape
He won't let you drown

So when dark times come your way
Rejoice on that day
For God is lifted high
And we are brought down

He is big.

       Rye Bread, Sunshine, and I all went to our youth group's Bible study last night.  We watched an amazing video with Louie Gigleo speaking at a missions conference.  We got a huge (yet still small)
picture of God.  Why is the universe so big?  Is it simply sitting out there, praising God?  You bet it is!!
 He is big.    

He is really, really big.  HE is the God we serve.   Sometimes just going through routine wakeup eatbreakfast havequiettime doschool eatlunch gotochurch calendercalendercalender, we can lose who God really is.  But he deserves more than that.  And He does. He is getting praise 24/7.  He doesn't NEED us.   But he lets us praise Him and serve Him.   So it was good to hear that last night.

Here goes nothing...

Hey me and my twin bro are startin' a blog! woot woot. We`re pretty excited. And if you`re wondering about our title you need to watch more Tim Hawkins. Well anyway this blog is about a couple of teenage guys who are striving to be different than this ding-dong world. And without Jesus, we`re hopeless. So I hope you enjoy this video from Tim Hawkins about being different for Jesus:
