Outside my window- The last two days have been grey and rainy, but i'm so glad its not snow!!! :) We also have leaves and green grass!!! FINALLY!!!!! :D

Whats happened since my last update - I cant believe my last blog post was in February! Time has certainly flown! Since then I have been busy with school, dog sitting, crafting, working on my churches website, my 17th birthday party, I attended a couple weddings, helped work on my Dads latest rental house, took my sisters senior pictures, played three hours of volley ball with my youth group, watched my siblings when Mom and Dad went to the Minneapolis city wide garage sales ( I got my very first sewing machine! ), and I attended Then Engage Conference in Minneapolis, Mn that was put on by World Magazine with my youth group last weekend!! Now all that wasn't in order , and I probably left some stuff out, but you get the Idea. :)

From the kitchen - For lunch I made corned beef toasted sandwiches, and for super I'm making cheesy potato soup. :)

I'm creating - A purple and grey afghan, pics soon to come! :)

I'm hearing - Soundtracks on my Ipod.

I'm thinking about - Our Youth Group is doing the church service this week, I am doing special music with some friends, and we are all speaking about the conference we attended last weekend, so I'm pretty nervous about speaking, but.... I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philipians 4:13 :)

I'm reading - God's Gift To Women, By Eric Ludy.

I'm looking forward to - Going to Girls Camp with My cousins and dear friends in three weeks!!!

Hope you all have a blessed day!!! ~ Betsy

Day Book

Outside My Window - it's bright and sunny!!! This week is supposed to in the 30's!!!! :D

From The Kitchen - I made sloppy joes for lunch, and I'm going to make tater tot hot dish for supper.

I'm Hearing - My Brother watching something on Netflix.

I'm planning - on going to a friends house to work on our church website tomorrow!! :D

I'm creating - My friends and I are working on a gift for a Lady in our church.

I'm reading - Insanity, a book on Wattpad.

Exciting things that have happened- I got my license!!! :D And My Braces are finally off after 2 and a quarter years!!! :D

This Months Travels Brought Me To - Fargo, North Dakota. My sister Abby and I went to a youth retreat to hear John Heller Speak. His sermons were on James 4:6 and were about how God resists the proud, ( he gave an analogy of Stiff arming, it's a term used in foot ball, google it. ;) ), but gives Grace to the humble. While at the retreat I also learned to play speed volley ball, I'll admit I enjoy regular volley ball more, but it was fun. :) I also met many new friends and had great fellowship with old ones. John Heller's sermons were all very good, unfortunately I missed the last one because our flight was filling up, ( The downside to standby flight travel) so we had a change of plans and were able to leave early with some friends, which were so gracious as to let us stay with them until Mom picked us up the next morning. All in all we both had a wonderful time! :D

Around the house - My sister Abby, Lord willing, is going to be moving into her house this week!!

Sorry it took so long for the update! Blessings! ~ Betsy
