I was tagged!

I was tagged by Ashlin, a follower of mine, a week ago and am just now answering it...:)
1. When and how did you become a Christian? (Story time)
I became a Christian when I was 11.  I had grown up in church, and said I was a Christian because my friends did.  My faith didn't become real to me until I was 11.
2. How many siblings do you have and what is your "place"? i.e. Oldest, Second born, Middle, ect.
I have an older sister...We are besties :)
3. Do you prefer skirts/dresses or pants/shorts?
Um...I like dressing up for church, but love me some comfy jeans :)
4. If you could choose from any occupation, which would you like best?
I really want to get my degree in MIS (Management Information Systems) and I think it would be really cool to be a nanny that travels with a band....yeah, I'm weird.
5. What Book(s) of the Bible are you currently reading in your devotions?
I'm currently doing a 90 day Beth Moore study on John
6. Which movie genre is your favorite?
I'm a chic flick girl :)
7. Which of your birthdays is most memorable? (Again, a story is meant to be in the answer.)
Hmmm...Probably my 16th, because I got my car. 
A couple weeks before my birthday, my parents made my sister take me shopping and they went to pick up my car and surprised me with it in a ChickFilA parking lot :)
8. If you could live anywhere in the world [or galaxy] where would you live and why there?
Wisconsin on a lake for the summer, Texas in the winter! I LOVE Wisconsin summers but I don't think I could drive in the snow!
9. How many pets have you had in your lifetime?
Hmmm...Let's see
Courtney was our Mini Schnauzer that my parents had before I was born and until I was about 9
Then, I had about 12 fish before I was 8...haha, they kept dying :)
Then Whistle, the blue Parakeet, my dog gave him a heart attack, I think..haha
Then Fluffy the Hamster
Beauti the cat (I thought he was a girl for the first 2 years of his life...poor thing)
Fudge the Hamster
Patches the cat

  And Gracie, our current Mini Schnauzer

10. Would you consider yourself an avid reader?
Eh, if I have time I like a good Nicolas Sparks or Karen Kingsbury book
11. Why did you orginally decide to blog?
I started my blog to share my random thoughts about different parts of the Bible :)

My Life....

So.....I haven't really blogged much about my life lately.I have been babysitting a LOT and doing school non stop.
Doing so much school lately has left me with 9 pages of Literature, 30 pages of Business Math, 8 quizzes and 4 tests.
Which means.....

Wait for it......

I will be DONE with my Senior year of high school before Spring Break and before I leave for Israel!!!!!
I leave the 9th. How crazy is that?!
God Bless!

Something I Would've Missed

So, our Sunday School today was on Matthew 14:13-21.
This story is about Jesus feeding 5,000 men (plus women and children) with 5 loaves and 2 fish. This is an amazing feat, but the amazing thing is right before this passage. Right before this, John the Baptist, Jesus' cousin was beheaded. Jesus went up on the mountain to be alone and to pray...He was followed...by over 5,000 people. I don't know about you, but if I had just heard that my cousin had died, I would be in no mood to preach. The really cool thing was that Jesus didn't get mad when He heard of His cousin's death, He went to pray. Then, he didn't get upset when these people came and wanted to hear from Him. He fed them ALL by the grace of God.

I thought it was cool.
Next time, pray before you do something. You could do something cool, like feed 5,000 people. :)
