Why I LOVE Cats (and you should too)

IMG_3364

My family currently has six cats. Yes, six. We have one girl, her name is Tilly (she is pictured above), and 5 boys. Tilly is a little firecracker. She does not tolerate any antagonizing from the boys. It is quite funny to watch her battle against them sometimes.

Thank You For Being My Best Friends

Dear My Two Best Friends,

I met you almost 17 years ago for the first time. You have never left me. You have always been there for me. In times of trouble, you listened to my heartache. When I needed advice you gave me the best solutions, besides God. When all my friends left me you did not. When I did something stupid, you Continue reading “Thank You For Being My Best Friends”

Dear Diary – #1

dear diaryWell, hello.

It’s been a while. Life has been great. I’ve had a couple ups and downs but the majority of my time has been blessed. School has slowed down a bit (Thank God!). I am focusing more on writing and math. I am beginning to really love to write, hehe. I know, I know I am becoming that crazy homeschool student. I’m ok with that, though.

I am playing club volleyball for my second season and am loving it. We have won 4 straight tournaments coming in 1st in GOLD. Yes, gold. I am so happy and proud of my team! Super fun times are being had in this season of my life.

My brothers and I are currently working out every day. It’s fun to challenge each other and see who can push themselves further than the other. I am winning right now (hehe, totally not bragging). I am really enjoying the quality time I am having with my family right now. We watch X-Files every night at the moment which is extremely fun. We only have 2 episodes left of the ENTIRE season. Let’s just say we are trying to procrastinate the end. It’s sad. But on a happier note, we get doughnuts almost every night. LOL. We may be on a doughnut kick currently. The doughnuts might finally be catching up with my body and might be motivating me to workout. Just maybe (hehe).

We are going to go up north in a few weeks, I am excited for that! My Uncle is graduating from college, so we are going to celebrate him and then go see my cousins in VA. That will be fun. Maybe I will get a slight tan and hopefully not BURN. The last tournament I had was at Disney and after winning GOLD I was tired, so my brothers, Grandma, and I went down to the pool so the boys could play and I could rest on the pool deck and my mom could work and my dad and Granddad could sleep. Good idea right? WRONG. I fell asleep for 40 minutes and got scorched. Absolutely fried. It was horrible. To this day, I am still red from the sunburn, but thankfully I do not have any pain.

I am failing at following God like I should. I need to pray more. I feel like my fire is burning out. I know it is my fault so I will be getting on to fixing that ASAP. I just started a Bible study again, which is GREAT! So that should help.

Well, I am off to tackling my to-do list. So till next time and
By His Grace,

A Letter To My Future Little One

Dear Future Little One,

I dream of the days when I get to love you. I pray that I will be the best I can be for you. That I will love you with God’s love. I pray that I will show you how kind and soft words go so much further than harsh words. I pray that I and your future daddy will be great examples of faith to you. When I think of you this moment, I wonder whether God will bless me and Continue reading “A Letter To My Future Little One”

HOW TO: Make a Decision

how to make a decisionDo you have a tuff time making decisions? Do you fear making the wrong decision? You are not alone but I have a secret to help you, just keep reading. 🙂

Decisions are hard. I know. Even just choosing strawberry jelly or apricot jelly can be difficult! Then you have to make a decision for which sports team you will play for, which college you are going to go to, or if you need to get out of the current relationship you are in because it is not edifying to God.

Decisions are hard. Thankfully we have the amazing Lord and we can just relax and give the situation over to Him.

This past year I was in a relationship that wasn’t right. God kept tugging on my heart and telling me something wasn’t right. So I took a leap of faith and ended it. Yikes. It was very hard, I am not going to lie. There was tears and heartache but there was also unexplainable joy that came from all the negative. In the end, I became closer to God.

How did I make that decision? Well, I asked God for direction. I prayed.

Yep, it is that simple. To make the big decision of the  sixteenth year of my life so far, I prayed. I simply sent my uncertainness to the Lord and let Him make the decision for me.

Jeremiah 2911Why do I seek God to help me make my decisions? That is a great question! Thanks for asking! Hehe 😉 I choose to seek God first so that I may know the plans He has for me. In Jeremiah God states, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.'” (Jeremiah 29:11)

I hold on to the truth that He has plans that are much greater than mine. I will trust God because He knows best.

After making the decision to focus more on God instead of a relationship I have been blessed in many ways. My relationships with my family have grown, my relationship with God has grown, I have more joy, and I understand a little more of what I need in my future spouse. I also learned that every situation that you endure will teach you something. Even the littlest thing as getting a new kitten. 🙂

I want to encourage you to pray about every situation you are in. I can not stress enough how important prayer is. Do NOT neglect it. Take comfort in knowing the fact that God is ALWAYS listening. He never ignores you. He might give you an answer you do not like, but it is still an answer.

I would love to pray for you! Here is a form you can fill out (only I will see it unless you state otherwise) with your prayer request. Please give me the honor of praying for you!

I have had tuff times making decisions and I have feared that I would make the wrong decision. Even while praying and making the decision to walk away from that relationship was extremely hard and I did not know if it was the correct thing to do for a couple weeks. God showed me though that I did the right thing and He continues to show me.

I would love to read about a hard decision you have had to make or have to make currently. Maybe I can pray for you? I would also love for you to write me your prayer request. 🙂

By His Grace,
~Bella
