Saturday. Finally.

This whole week I have been waiting for this day.

Science is too frustrating
There is a homework overload
Trying to finish voice practice

But now I can relax, cause Saturday's here (at least for 24 hr.)!

Lost & Found

Ever found a dog....With those sad mournful eyes...

Who picture came out as a blur...

 Who was scrawny...and not well fed

You wanted to name him something...Trixie...Pepper...Shloiah 

Maybe, just maybe your dad would open his puppy heart! (Message to Dad...)
This would be the opportunity you had been waiting! 

Till reality struck...your dad would not open his puppy heart (Message to Dad). You'd eventually find his owner, the dogs name wouldn't be a good one, everything would be an opportunity missed!

Message: We did find the dog's owner. We found out the dog's name was Billy. We went racing around town with three neighbors to 5 different dog places (the last was open). We had no info. from all our owner hunting. Somehow we saw an advertisement for a lost dog on our neighborhoods website. The owner came. Anyway Dad who loves dogs, but doesn't want one himself (Open your puppy heart) would probably not have let us kept him. So thus ends the Lost & Found Post.

Sorry the pictures aren't that good.


The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Milky Way

Isn't our God amazing?

Hebrews 11:3 - "By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible." 

     The Milky Way is 100,000 light years long. Light travels fast. So if light were to travel over that one galaxy it would take that light 100,000 years to cross it!!! Milky Way has at least 100 billion maybe even 400 billion. God didn't stop at making one galaxy, He created lots more! Take a moment right now in your busy day to give thanks to God for his greatness. 


Do - Re - Mi
