My entry for Britt's contest

This is my essay for Britt's contest:

What do I live for?  It is more what I am trying to live for.  Everyday distractions come try and swallow me up, attempting to pull me away from the only One who is important enough to live for: God.  Many times I bend to these distractions, and God gets pushed away to the corner.  

    One thing I can't even comprehend, though, is that God loves us, He loves me, no matter how many times I mess up.  No matter how many times I say: "Oh, I don't need to do my devotions today.  I can do them tomorrow." Or "I'll read my Bible some other time."  Or I fight with my siblings or fail to do my chores.  God is still right there, waiting for me to come to Him, to talk to Him.  I fail Him so many times, but He still loves me endlessly.  And once I confess my sins, God is right there, more than happy to forgive me.  I just think that this is amazing, and it is something that I forget so many times.

    He is so loving and merciful, and I am realizing that more and more everyday.  No matter how many times I mess up, no matter how many times I place other things before Him, no matter what I do, God is always there, steadfast and unchanging.

Hey guys! :)

Today I am finally doing a post about camp! :D

I'll say the truth: I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.  I got homesick on the very first day, and I really wanted to go home.  The activities, worship, and the theme nights were still really fun though! :)

I got there on Sunday at around 4:00.

The counselors are so crazy! :D

My dad and Emma, and me cut off on the left! :D

My cabin!  Left to right: Melia, Laurel, Megan, Christina, my counselor, "Waddles", Caroline, Lizzie, me, and Dyamond.  

Me, eating a popsicle! :) 

In the pool! :D

My cabin again! 

Every day we would have 4 different activities, a Bible study, and rest time, as well as free time. :) At night, we had different theme nights.  Camp ended on Saturday at around 11:30. :)

And now I'm going to church camp on Saturday!  I'll only be gone until Wednesday, 4 nights, so it's not as long.  :) I'll talk to you guys soon! :)

Hey guys!

I'll do a longer post sometime soon, but this is just a quick post to say that I got back from camp on Saturday!  The reason that I haven't posted sooner is because I got sick Sunday, and I'm still recovering from that.  Once I'm better, I'll post about camp! :)

Thanks for being such great friends!!  I am so happy I have 79 followers!  You guys are the best! :)

Hey guys! :)

How are you doing?

I am doing well. :)

How was your 4th of July?  Mine was good!

We went to a firework show near my grandparent's house, as I said in my previous post. :) It was fun!

The fireworks were so pretty! 

We always love visiting the goats when we're at my grandparent's house!  Four of them let you pet them. :) They're so cute!

My cousin, Will, with blonde hair, and his new friend, Logan, bottle feeding Squirt and Patches. :) 

Squirt! :) 

My cousin, Audrey, loved the goats! :) She was so sweet with them. :)

Here we all are with Patches, who got out of the picture a little bit. :D

This is Pet! Yes, that's really her name! :)

Grunter, my grandparent's first bottle goat!  That was three years ago, and she still is really lovable! :)

Emma with Grunter and Patches. Her head got cut off. :D

Pretty sunset!

Well, I'll try and post soon!  I'm going to be at summer camp (my first overnight camp ever!  Eek!) from  this Sunday until next Saturday.  So, I will post about it when I get back!

Love you guys!

Hey guys! :)

It's July 1st! :) But you probably already knew that, didn't you? :)

I can't wait to see what July brings.  I'm going to summer camp on July 14, and I'm excited about that. :) I'm also going to my grandparent's house for the 4th of July tomorrow. :)

On Wednesday, it was my 16th birthday! :) Then on Friday, my friend and her siblings came to stay the night!  We had a lot of fun swimming, going to the park, watching Aliens in the Attic, making a music video, and playing Just Dance 4, plus other things! :)

My friend, also named Hannah, and I. :)

Emily and my sister, Emma. :)

My brother, Ethan, and Reid. :)

All of us! 

Here's our music video! :D We're crazy, I know. :D Sorry if it's blurry. :P

What are you looking forward to this July? :)
