5 weeks? Eeesh...

     Yeah it`s been about five weeks since my last post. Pretty sad I know. Just thought I`d let you all know I`m still alive and well. =) In the past few weeks, we have been up to things such as homeschool co-ops (learning about things like how to say the word "orange" properly, and how to come up with a fairy tale twist in 30 minutes. Yeah that`s what we homeschoolers do in school.), turning 16 (crazy, I know), basketball practices and games, Thanksgiving, my sister`s 19th birthday, air-soft wars, school, meeting my sister`s CollegePlus! friends, school, getting sick, Black Friday shopping with Oggie, Bugg, and Mrs. Henn (never did find any boots that I liked), school, and we went out to lunch at McDonald`s with three of the awesome Nobises yesterday with lots of awesomely awkward conversations and comments and laughing til our cheeks hurt. Sorry, if ever there was a really bad run-on sentence, that was it. But I kind of like run-on sentences. Anyway, overall it`s been a good few weeks. Although it did snow yesterday. I was kind of sad, but it`s ok, I guess. Enough rambling though. I would like to share a verse or two with you guys that I found to be rather awesome.

Check out Isaiah 57:15:
For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite."

That`s so awesome. God, who inhabits eternity! God who is high and lifted up! God whose name is holy! He who dwells in the high and holy place and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit. He is all these amazing, incomprehensible things and yet He still dwells with the person of a lowly spirit. He still reaches down as our Father and revives us. He is so good!!

And I`ll just leave you with Isaiah 54:10, one of my favorite verses:
"For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

What an awesome promise! Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!! :)
