Happy New Year! It has been awhile since I last posted. Sorry about that! However, as I'm sure you all understand, life gets very busy for me around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then my birthday. :-) So I'll give you a brief update.
Before I do, I suppose that I should let you know that this is my 100th post over the course of about three years! This will be my fourth year of blogging! I am so pleased that I have been able to keep this running for this long with every intention of keeping on. Thank you for staying with me so faithfully! And now for the update.
We had a relaxing Thanksgiving. I helped my mom make the meal and as a family we read praises that we had collected over the year. We celebrated our Thanksgiving on the day before the actual Thanksgiving. The next day we went into our local town and delivered meals to seniors before heading up to my grandparents house where we enjoyed another Thanksgiving meal!
Two weeks after we came home, we traveled to visit my other grandma, aunt, uncles, and cousins. While there, we finished up our school semester.
Next thing I knew, we were at the Christmas Eve service and it was Christmas the next day! I was so blessed by all the love shown to my family by friends in our fellowship. Two days later my grandparents came and we celebrated Christmas and my fifteenth birthday together.
On my actual birthday, my family and I went to see the new Star Wars movie. I had been counting down to this for a long time. Though I personally feel that numbers 1,2,4,5, and 6 (chronologically) were better, I really enjoyed it. The day was special and once more, I was so blessed by the love shown to me by family and friends.
We didn't do much on either New Year's Eve or New Year's Day except spending good time together. However, we watched the first Lord of the Rings movie on New Year's Eve and the second on New Year's Day. Yesterday we finished the final one of this series that quickly climbed to among my top favorites. I love that non-stop action found in movies such as this, the Hobbit, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones. Which of these movie series are your favorite?
This next weekend I will be going to Hume Lake. I would really appreciate your prayers for me as well as all the other youth, and the counselors.
And that brings you up-to-date on my recent life. Hopefully you can understand why I have been so absent online recently. ;-) However, I hope to do some more posts soon. Also, I have a question for you:
Because I didn't get any entries last time for my writing challenge, I'm not sure if you are still interested, or were just too busy like I was. Please let me know if you would be interested in entering my previous one, or if I should even do another. Also, check out my new wintery blog look and let me know your thoughts! Thank you and have a blessed New Year!
