2012




Its 11:54 m on a Tuesday, we just came in from seeing the movie 2012.

The main character, Jackson Curtis( john Cusack) is a workaholic, forgetting about his family, a wife and two children, who now live with the boyfriend. Movie in a nutshell, Disaster strikes faster then the top scientist had calculated, whole world in for it etc. It was VERY similar to "The day after tomorrow" ., like almost exactly. except for the fact that this movie, I think is trying to get people scared, like because of all the global warming garbage you hear in the news, they made a point to put it in the movie. I thought the graphics and acting were all very well done. There was also alot of mention of almost every religion out there, but t wasn't done in a boastful, "one is Superior" kind of way. As of late I hear people around me talking about how scared they are for the end of the world, or that modern technology will over power the human mind, people put so much effort into believing everything they here, except for faith in God, which is the only thing that can truly save them. Some people don't know what they are missing, cause having faith in God instead of man made things is a pretty awesome security!


Note: This movie was also VERY long...Just sayin!
Also these are not all my thoughts, I just felt like writing something!

Best guest blogger!

Paul Brandt is holding a contest to find a blogger to go with him to Cambodia.



Why I should be Chosen to be Paul Brandts next best blogger.

I wouldn't say I am the best blogger in the world, by a long shot, BUT I do enjoy it, and when you enjoy what your doing the outcome is usually pretty good. As you readers have seen, this past summer I went to Nicaragua with Operation Christmas Child, to be honest with you, I was VERY hesitant about going, I was excited, but rather nervous. As soon as the plane touched the ground in Managua, Nicaragua, I felt great, like this is were I was supposed to be! Ever since that moment, followed by the whole trip, I was pretty excited, and astonished at what, imple things like shoeboxes, and a whole lotta God can do! I guess you could say I am on a missions/travel high. I really want God to use me in any way possible to help other people, and this seems like a pretty sweet gig! I guess that wasn't really a "why I SHOULD" be chosen, but more of "why I WANT to be chosen"!

I'm planning something!

Hey everyone!

SO as everyone can see, I went on a missions trip with OCC(operation christmas child), to Nicaragua! I loved the kids there SO much and just can't stop thinking about there cute, smiling faces! So this box collecting month, my sister and I are putting together a boxraiser( like a fundraiser but we collect prepaired shoeboxes for OCC). SO on november 19th, were going to have worship/music , a speaker, then some dessert, and everyone brings a box! Were going to decorate the church with OCC posters and Pictures of kids opening boxes! SO if you could please pray for a good turn out that would be great! Also if you have any idea's let me know!
