Turning to God

HEY EVERYBODY!!! What's up? So, If no one knows, I'm a Christian. I'm a follower of God! I love him! And he is my 1#. So I'm going to tall about some kind of challenge he put me in and how I dealt with it. Hope this helps you!

Every week day I do a bible study called Sword Study. Every year they pick a book of the bible and we read it, learn about it, write the chapter and all kinds of fun things. Well, I was doing my bible study and we were talking about people who wouldn't turn to him when they're scared or mad or in trouble. Well, after that a couple hours later I couldn't find my iPod. I was scared that it would be lost forever. Part of me said "Ellie it's okay. Who cares about it anyway. Just let it go." Another part of me said, "I want to find it. I talked to my friends on that thing." To get my mind off it for a while I watched a movie, went outside, and played with my brother. A little bit later I realized, I'm stressed and mad and kinda sad, but I'm relying on the tv, and my rope outside, and so many other things to help me. What I really needed was God. I was turning to other things rather than God. I was so busy thinking about finding my iPod I just totally forgot about praying to God or spending time with him. So, don't do what I did. Have you ever a experience like that? What did you do? What did you learn?

Peace and Love,

So I've been posting a lot about songs I like right now. I thought I would just tell you that I'll be posting songs I liked throughout the week so here this week.
I really like this song for two reasons.
1# It's kinda slow and it's very unusual for Lecrae cause he's a rapper.
2# It's a awesome song cause it talk about giving you all to God every day because "You could die tonight."
I also wanted to post this video because one of my favorite bands did a cover of it and I LOVE THIS SONG!!! SO THANKS GARDINER SISTER! IT WAS AWESOME! (as usual)
I also wanted to share these two videos. THey are awesome! They're the same song but in a different time as you can see. The first one a song that the two girls made together. The second one is about five years later. They sing the song and make a music video of it. So that's double awesome! And the song is sooooo sweet! :) :D :P
That's it for me!
Peace and Love,

My kind of Fourth of July week!

Hey peeps! Happy belated Fourth of July! I don't know about you but I had a GREAT Fourth of July! So I'm here to share all my awesome memories of this Fourth of July 2014! Hope you like it!

We went to my aunt's for Fourth of July. She lives in a little town called Merryville or something like that but it's by Williamsville and Springfield. The family is in my dad's family. He has three sisters and two brothers. Two of his sisters were there and his two brothers and his mom (my Grandma). It was tons of fun! My cousins are little and cute so I kinda watched them. It felt like we were always on their trampoline. Then, we went to a festival to watch are cousin play basketball. While we were there we saw a parade, went to the park, ate a snow cone, and saw a bow shop! After that we relaxed. Jumped more on the trampoline while the sprinkler was on! It was a tiring day!

The next day we went to a baseball field to play. We played a lot there! I did a little fishing there with my aunt and dad. I painted my toe nails with my other aunt and cousins. Then, at the end of the day we played a crazy game called Mustache and watched "The Lego Movie!" It was cool cause at the end of the movie pretty much everybody In the family laid down somewhere and watched the movie! It was also awesome! The next day we sadly had to say our goodbyes and leave. Heartbreaking.

One of the highlights slash funny moment slash never forget is when some of the kids were playing baseball with a bouncy ball. One of my cousins just couldn't hit the ball. Proudly I told him " Here watch this," well the first pitch to me went pretty far. It wasn't a big hit I thought ( OH NO! IT WAS A BIG HIT!) HAHA It was funny!

I almost forgot. The fireworks! They were okkkkkayyyy. See, my cousin did it with his friends. They took forever to get a firework up. Well, they had some neighbors that were my enjoyment. Theirs were better! But I enjoyed making fun of them. I'm so nice I know!

The trip was enjoyable and awesome! I hope you had a great one too!

Peace and Love,
