My mom's Birthday!

Today was my mom's birthday! We were too busy having fun with mom I didn't have time to post til now. She turned 50 yrs old (not old :). She has the same birthday as my grandma (her mom). Grandma would have been 89. She past away in 2008.

Right now we are in Florida visting my brother Mike, his wife Amber and my Auntie Sharon. We went to a water park and had a great time... my aunt is a nurse but works at Sea World part time and she gets us in for free and we love it! After the water park we went to eat and then came home and ate cake.

This is mom with Jamira from COTW
I love my mom so much. She is one of my best friends. She is great. I am so thankful for her.

I hope your day was great, Mom.
I love you.

Crazy thought!

My mom and I were riding in the car listening to the christian radio and the man was saying how in America lots of people are living in poverty. I can't remember the percentage. Than he went on to say that to be classified as povery in America you make less then 22,000 a year..... 22,000 thats about 1,800 a month. My mind immediately thought of my sweet little Regita and her family who makes 15.00 a month.

$15.00 a month

I thought of the the many many children in the third world that live on a dollar a day....360 a year not 22,000. I do feel bad for the people in America that stuggle to put food on the table. I know a family we are helping from our church that struggle with not having enough money. But how can we call 22,000 a year poverty when familys are living on a dollar a day in other countries?

It just kind of made me think. Hope it does you too.

I think.....

.... this is the cutest thing!
 This little girl is so beautiful. I love how the compassion worker (Maybe mother. I'm not sure) brushes the little girls hair out of her face. So sweet.  Please take a minute to watch.

This and That.

Well.........My family and I have a new puppy. He is the sweetest thing ( other than Jazzy and Regita of course;)
We named him Snoopy.

Him and his dad, Skip. You wouldn't know that right?:)

Also there is this really cool new way to write your sponsor child online. You get to pick a pretty paper and even add pics. You just go to your account and click write your child and it is that easy! Now I will write my kids two times a month instead of once. One by hand and one online. :) I am so excited. I have not recieved a letter in a while...Or at least it feels long to me.:) I am always waiting for one. I can't imagine how a sponsor wouldn't be.

My school is going great. My science is so cool. It is by far my favorite subject. My pre algebra is not and it is not cool but it's ok and my mom says I am doing fine with it. I think my favorite part of school is when I have to write a paper about anything I want to. Then I always write about Compassion and my girls.

I have been missing your comments but I keep reminding myself I am doing this for God's glory and not comment. Thank you for reading and God bless.

Joy on a sad day!

Today my oldest brother Mike launched a church in Conway, Fl. He will be the worship leader and our long time friend Mr. Rick will be the pastor. They had a turn out of 150 people. We are so thankful and excited for what God is doing in the ministry of Grace Conway. We are praising God for the great turn out. We are continuing to pray for the lives in Conway that need God. We are  praying that more people than we can count will be impacted by this new church. Will you pray for the ministy of Grace Conway?

Mike is 12 years older than me (26). He married Amber in 2007. They moved to Florida in June 2010. We see them about every two months.We miss them. We are going for a visit the end of the month. I am so excited.Oh and Mike and Amber sponsor a child with Compassion  too.

Mike is the guy on the stage :)

I know today is a very sad day for all of us because of the 9/11 attack ten years ago. We are praying for those who lost love ones. We pray God would give them comfort.  We also pray for the muslim people who think killing people will get them to heaven. I pray God would open there eyes to the true God who loves them. That they would turn from there horrible ways and seek His face.

So happy for you Mike and Amber. You both are so cool.

Thank all for for reading. I love you guys.
