2nd match at 9 was against one of our other church teams. First game 26 to 24! one over time and they are really good! 2nd game we lost it and it was 25 to 18. I felt like crying because we had held them at 24 and come from 12 to 18 and i was serving and served it out of bounds. :( I felt like crying soooo bad! We had awesome support on the bench though....Justin cheered us on all the way through!
We have two games left and even if we don't get em....we are getting better and we'll make it next year!

I cannot give you silver to hold,
I cannot give you a Dollar to spend,
Just the same on me you can depend.
But I CAN give you my friendship and love,
If I could I'd get you the moon above.
I can't give you silver or a pot of gold,
But I can give you friendship to hold.

For those faithful voters the logical answer was twenty, but you didn't count the ppl i didn't know that were there and of course the employees. So the correct answer was 30. hehe i is sneaky!
Oh and the answer to the other poll was once that i have driven on the highway. :(
g2g.....lots late.....oh and i slept till 11:30 pm today...can you top that? It was sooooo nice!!!!!

Tonight we had another volleyball match. We actually won the first game too! 25 to 17....but they won the second one....that forced the third game and they won it 15 to 11...bummer huh? but we still went and had ice cream....and i choked on a piece of ice....which remained lodged in my throat until it melted....lovely huh......
We also played a trick on Justin....we got to Mcdonald's right after him and AJ had gone in , so we checked to see if he locked his suburban...and he dunt!!!!hehe so mom turned on his windshield wipers and his face was hilarious when he turned it on later! Mom later realized that one other thing we should have done was turn the radio all the way up so when he turned it on it would scare him half to death.....we are gonna do that one next time!!!
G2g....i was suppose to be in bed and hour ago...hehe
Monday, November 19, 2007
Yesterday was another busy Sunday.....we FINALLY got our Christmas music for the cantata and we have less than a month to have it ready. Alone with two offertory pieces i have this month, two songs for the PTF at the school, and Messiah Highlights to play with the choir. OY!!!!! Talk about OVERRUN!!! But i like busy!
I am soo tired from everything that has been going on!
I am so ready for Thanksgiving break....but it is kinda a dud because we aren't having a big get together like i am used to. I plan on sleeping in or something to celebrate! I think i'll spend that day thanking the Lord for giving me eyelids! hehe
gotta go fer now......

Last night we won our FIRST VOLLEYBALL MATCH!!!! 25 to 0 both games! Now ask me how that worked! hehe
Tonight we went to the Red and White game at our church. It's where the women staff play the girls team at volleyball and the men staff play the guys team at basketball. IT WAS AWESOME!! Kailyn, Alaina, Justin, and I sat together and we had a blast. (yes we were sitting on bleachers, and yes my back side is happy to be sitting in a padded chair right now!)
The girls beat the ladies.....but as always year after year.....the men staff won!
Also something really cool happened! Our football team went to the championships this year! They lost by 10 points. Yes we were all so proud of them especially considering that our team has stunk the past couple years. They went so far....had awesome team spirit and all the TACCS gave them was a plack. So....Mr. Wilson had all the team members and coaches gather in the middle of the gym. He told us all what a phenomenal job the guys had done...then he said, " these guys worked so hard, had THE best team spirit, and this is all they got." and he dropped the plack on the table in front of him. Then he said this. " I want to be the first to put in my ten dollars to get these men the trophy they deserve. Who will help em get it?" Then everyone started clapping slowly at first, then a little quicker....all in unison....as many men headed for the table throwing in there ten or twenty dollars. Even some of the kids brought one or two. They then counted it and we had raised almost 2oo dollars to get them a trophy! Cool huh? I just wish something like that would happen with the building fund!
Well me gots to go but read my essay that i wrote for my act prep class.
The question was.....What are three qualities you would want in a good friend?
Hope you enjoy!
.....the format is goobered where i copied and pasted but i guess you get the point!

Friends can have many different qualities. There are three qualities in a friend that are very important to me for specific reasons. These three qualities that I want in a good friend are trustworthiness, respect, and a desire to serve and please God.
Trust is important in any and every relationship. I want my friend to be trustworthy because I want to know I can trust him with anything. Whether it is something as small as a secret or as big as my life, I know he’d never tell my secret and would save my life if he could. Or if I asked him to do something for me I know he’d get it done.
Respect is also a very important quality. I want my friend to treat adults and people in authority over him in an honorable fashion. In my eyes, if a person shows respect then he himself becomes worthy of my respect and that of others.
Above all, I believe that the sincere desire to serve and please God in every aspect of my friend’s life is the most important. The Bible says in Proverbs 27:17: "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend". Since I want to serve and please God, my close friend, the person I spent a lot of my time with needs to have the same desire because we either sharpen each other or make each other dull.
I am very blessed to have many friends that have these qualities. Sometimes my friends make mistakes and I understand, just as I know they do for me when I mess up. But overall, my friends are the best!

I am so totally pooped right now!
Well last night we were finally able to see the meeting of my cousin and one of my friends sisters. We ( kay, faith, and i) had been planning this for months and it finally happened. We went to Taco Bell after church and ended up staying for an hour and a half! We had a blast! For a while there were many people from our church there. Let's see. There was the Stewart Family, which is Bro. Paul, Ms. Denise, Maegan, Brittney, Ashley, Kailyn, Evan, and Ethan, Ben Randolph( Britts Fiance), Daniel of course, The Mullenix Family, which is Bro. Randy, Ms. Trudy, Michael, Miranda, and Kendall, Justin and Dustin Lassiter, then Mom, Reb, and me. We filled the place i tell ya! It was a blast too!
Tomorrow is volleyball practice! Hopefully it will do us some good.....bro. Frankie asked Justin if he wanted him to pray for our team to win and Justin said No, There's no hope! I threw my hot sauce pack at him! Oy!
G2g...me is tired!

We are gonna have a blast watching movies and playing board games!!! They get to stay till noon tomorrow too!
Well, we lost the game last night and i know i say this every time, but we played a whole lot better this week. I say it every time because we get better every time.....i finally found a word to describe Justin's attitude when we lose. STUBBORN!!! I told him....you have to admit we played a LOT better...and he said..." I'll say we played a lot better when we win".....i called him stubborn to his face and he denys it. hehe We went and got ice cream again in our defeat and it tasted just as good as it would have had we won. haha
The score was game 1: 22 to 25, game 2: 17 to 25........ish....we almost won the first one then our mind power went Ka flu ie!!!!!! ( Just say it like it sounds you'll get the point!)
More school ick!

Today was a bit chilly....ok it was COLD!!!!!! But we went soul winning anyways.....hehe....and as a result there were 11 ppl saved!!! OH YEAH!!!! And i am sooo glad i didn't have to walk up the hill at church after we at. ( Walk up the cold, dark, windy way!) I got to ride with Kailyn's sis Maegan!! Lot faster too!
Faith i couldn't resist telling Alaina and Kailyn that you were coming and we had to tell Ashley that Daniel was gonna be here Sunday b/c Kay said that if we didn't she would prob be mad. hehe The whole Stewart Family is excited now! Is Dan gonna be here Sunday night fer church too? Tell him he needs to!!!
g2g fer now..... oh yeah.....our ladies in our church are making a cookbook to sell for the building fund and asked for recipes. So I sent them this one! hehe
Hey, I though you would enjoy this recipe that has been in my family for years. (my mom makes it the best!)
1 medium elephant
brown gravy to cover
salt and pepper
2 rabbits (optional)
Cut the elephant into bit-sized pieces. This should take about 2 months. Add gravy and bake about 4 weeks at 465 degrees. This serves 3,800. If you more people are expected, rabbits may be added, but do this only if necessary, as most people do not like to find hare in their stew.
I wonder what elephant really taste like.......?? hmmmm.....YUCK!!!!!!!!
Talk to ya later!!!
I'll try to post more tonight i have to get ready fer soulwinning!!

Today was also the Sunday where we took our building by faith commitments. I don't know exactly what this amount means as far as if it is what we will have in a yr from the commitments or what we have so far or what but the figure was around half a million....and the great news is we don't have to have it all before we begin construction. Hopefully, with lots of prayer that will be REALLY SOON! :)
Well.....tomorrow i head to THE college...fun fun...i m not really that nervous because it is just me, not a bunch of kids. After we get done there we are gonna go meet my papa in rivergate and then go to his house. He lives in Old Hickory Village which is where a lot of senior citizens live. Mom and i made some cookies and jewelry and we are gonna go door to door and try to sell some stuff thata way.
I was trying to sell some angel earrings at church tonight and i went up to Jacob Bien and Dusty and asked em if they wanted to buy em for their mom's for Christmas.....I was desperate.....or anxious to make a sale...either will do.
I am sOOOOO excited about the slumber party Fri....AND i might get to go on a shopping trip with Kailyn and Alaina Saturday because they won the trip in their SS class....which i also won last year when i was in that class but didn't get to go for one reason or another so ms. Tammy said i could go....mom said it depends on what we get done this week......but it wasn't a no!!! hehe
I think that is all i can think of for a none busy day......Thanks to all youns that have been commenting i love reading em!!!

Alaina's 15th birthday is the 12th of this month and she wasn't planning on having a birthday party...but we thought of several reasons why she should. We thought about planning a movie night sleepover at my house...and both mine and Alaina's parents approved it!!!!

Today we went to my sister's college and signed me up for my ACT prep class. This one is diff though. They are going to give me an assessment quiz this Monday which tells them my strong and weak points then they enter my scores into a program that makes a prep class especially for me! With this ACT prep i will be ready to get the highest score possible that way i can get a scholarship or something. We also discovered that if i dual enroll this prep thingy will only cost up $20. Cool huh. My first ACT test will be Feb. 9th and I have another one i will take in April. THIS IS GETTING SCARY!!! The ACT is one step closer to COLLEGE!!!!!!!!!!! Pray deeply fer me please!
After we got done at the school we went to Kohl's to spend our $25 gift cards we got for our birthdays! I got a really cute shirt that has a hood but is nice enough to wear to church. And i got 2 pairs of knee high socks! CUTE!! I still have $ left on it too!

Nyways, All in all we had a blast and I am soooo excited about our new building! Tonight Pastor preached on the parable of the talents. How Christ gave each man so much and they knew he was coming back for it and expected it to have grown. So Pastor gave each member 18 and older $2 and each member 17 and younger all the way down to the 1yr olds $1 out of he own money! He told us to take it as if Christ had given it to us and to multiply it. We are all going to turn it back in Dec. 30th and see what we can do. It will all go toward the building fund too! He gave us some ideas of things we could do to turn our little dollar into more. I think i am gonna bake some brownies from a mix i can get at $ tree and sell individual brownies for 25 to 50 cents. Then as i get more i will make some jewelry and sell it. Cool beans huh?
Ok i am done now! I am sooo tired and my eyes are killing me from this screen!
I have a Volleyball game Tuesday! More about that later!
Byes.....have a wonderfully blessed day! (or night whenever you read this!hehe!)
This is all i have time to tell about now....i need to take a nap before tonite and we have to be back at the church at 5. Try to write more tonight about bowling! TONS of FUN!!!

There were no distinguishing features except for the one wall covered with small index card files. They were like the ones in libraries that list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these files, which stretched from floor to ceiling and seemingly endless in either direction, had very different headings. As I drew near the wall of files, the first to
catch my attention was one that read "Girls I have liked." I opened it and began flipping through the cards. I quickly shut it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then without being told, I knew exactly where I was.
were almost hilarious in their exactness: "Things I've yelled at my brothers." Others I couldn't laugh at: "Things I Have Done in My Anger", "Things I Have Muttered Under My Breath at My Parents." I never ceased to be surprised by the contents.
Each was written in my own handwriting. Each signed with my signature.
and burn the cards. But as I took it at one end and began pounding it on the floor, I could not dislodge a single card. I became desperate and pulled out a card, only to find it as strong as steel when I tried to tear it.

a sorrow deeper than my own.
He walked over and put His arm around me. He could have said so many things. But He didn't say a word. He just cried with me.

He placed His hand on my shoulder and said, "It is finished." I stood up, and He led me out of the room. There was no lock on its door. There were still cards to be written.
