I don't know about you all, but I'm a terrible procrastinator. When it comes to school I usually finish by the assigned date, but if I have five work days to write a paper I will probably write it in the last two and spend the previous three doing who know what with my time. I'm an artistic person who doesn't enjoy schoolwork. However, instead of doing it quickly as I know I'm capable of, I take my time and let is stretch out through the day as I weave the things I want to do into it. I like to tell myself I have plenty of time. "I'm merely going to finish this drawing, add a few sentences to my story, or play a little guitar," are normally among the thoughts that enter my mind. Another thing I tend to procrastinate is reading my bible. I don't have a special time I've designated for bible reading and this usually means that it doesn't get done. I want to read my bible. I enjoy reading my bible "but i have so many things to do right now, so I'll get to it later." I would like to present this to myself and others who suffer from the disease of procrastination. We are stewards of our time, and our time is not our own. Our time is God's time which He has made us stewards over. To waste this is to waste our lives and God's time. I know that when I really stop and think about it, I don't have any good excuses for where my time has gone, because I've wasted it. My goal for the summer is to get into a habit of reading and meditating on the bible daily, and to always be doing something rather than letting myself lie around because I'm too lazy to come up with something to do. Pray for me.

Off again!

Well, I know I'm terribly inconsistent both about posting on here and checking my friends blogs, but I DID remember this evening and decided to let you know what's going on. (If anyone actually reads this.) I've been quite busy with school: Algebra II, Geography and much, much more. In my free time I've been mostly drawing, reading, writing, playing guitar, violin, or piano, and reading God's wonderful word. I was touched last night at how much He has blessed me, and how ungrateful, selfish, and thoroughly unloving I am in return. I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor (for those of you who don't know me or spend much time around me) and it's easy for me to make sarcastic remarks toward people with the only intention of being funny, and yet looking back now, I wonder how many times my thoughtless remarks have stung, or really hurt people. I want to say now, if I've said things in the past to hurt or offend you, I was probably un-aware of it at the time, but I still send my deepest and most humble apologies to you.
Now I would like to ask for your prayers this weekend as my Mom and two sisters are traveling to Missouri to see my sister and her family and some friends of ours. It's going to be a packed weekend! At the end of it we're going to be bringing our friend, Bethany, home with us for a few weeks, so as you may imagine we're all rather psyched about that! Prayers are much appreciated!

From a forgetful, busy, and redeemed blogger,
