I feel like I need to update, though at the moment I can't think of anything I should update about. It feels like everybody is gone - mostly to Covie, and yesterday the swim team when to King's Island. I didn't go to Covie - obviously - and I didn't go to King's Island. :( So I guess I'm in a sortof depressed mood. I woke up in the middle of the night, and it was raining so I sat and watched the rain. Then I read Psalm 56, and cried myself back to sleep. If you all could please pray for me right now I would really appreciate it.

On to bigger and brighter subjects - We named the Kitten MJ, though I didn't even know that until I asked my mom this morning. Everyone needs to come over and see her eventually, she is really cute. Yesterday I finished the book "Phantom of the Opera" I liked, everyone I talked to told me I should just see the movie, but you know how usually the movie isn't as good as the book? Well, I think the book was really good, obviously they couldn't actually sing in the book, but it made the whole story a little less confusing. I don't know about anyone else, but I thought the movie was somewhat confusing, especially when you see it for the first time.

And that's about it.

Verses of the post:
"When I am afraid I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?" -Psalm 56: 3-4

Quote of the post:
"But above all things, dear brethren, study to practice in life that which the Lord commands, and then be you assured that you shall never heard nor read the same without fruit." -John Knox

yeah, I'm not at covie either....and I'm alive...I think, so I'm hoping you'll survive as well. I wish I could have sat and just looked at the rain....I don't remember where I was when it started, but I couldn't look at it...I know that. I've never seen the movie or read of the book of the phantom of the opera, I've seen some of the play, but not the whole thing. that's a great passage, and a good quote. oh and the movie last night wasn't all that good....so you didn't miss much ;). luke loved it though for some reason...I find the movie odd, but it's just like him to like something like that. I'll tty sometime soon I hope, love you! oh yes, and I shall be praying for you :).
