So the first post of 2010! I can hardly believe it is already 2010. This year I will turn 18 and graduate. In four months to be exact. It's like WOW!! I always felt that it would be forever till I would be eighteen and be a graduate. Now its only four months away, and it's bittersweet.

My dad and little brother is watching football. Its between Cincinnati and Florida Gators. I was suprised to see that Tim Teebo (maybe that's how you spell it) had a scripture on his face makeup. It was Ephesians 2:8-10. You just don't say that every day.

We made it to Canada safely. We had to turn our cell phones off it costs money to have them on. But I still have my laptop and there is wireless internet at the motel we are staying at. Daddy preached a good word tonight at the church. It was about setting our affections on things above. I also learned a new Ojibwa word. "Shook-may-gay-wen" It means promise. The people up here are so sweet. The pastor Sis. Sarah Waboose is in her sixties and she has such a servant's heart. She prepares some really good meals too. God has really been working on my heart about sacrifice. I am slowly beginning to understand about being a servant. It's just amazing and humbling. I know it's only by the grace of God.

"He is jealous for me. Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy! And all of the sudden I am unaware of these afflictions eclisped by glory, and I realize just how beautiful you are, and how great your affections are for me!"
(Oh How He Loves Us; David Crowder)

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
(Isaiah 61:3)

We love Tim Tebow around here. Every game for the past 2 years he has had the reference for a different Bible verse under his eyes. In fact for the last home game, the stands were full of people who wrote a verse on their face paint in honor of him. The announcers even read part of the verse referenced on his face paint (the other part dealt directly with Christ, so they stopped short of reading the entire passage).

Wow, Canada! It must be so beautiful up there right now. Have a great time with your family. You are an impressive young lady. May God continue to use you for His glory.

Yea I was so suprised! I had to look up the verse. You just don't see that everyday especially in Sports. Canada is very very cold!! The mountains up here are so pretty with all the snow! My dad comes up here at least twice a year to preach at one of the Native churches. It's fun to try to learn new words! I can't wait though to be back in the warm south though :)
