Jazz It Up A Bit

So today we leave for Camp Homewood. I am SOOOO STOKEDDD!!! Three days filled with friends, activities, camp food and Jazz. Pure bliss! I'll have more to say on Friday when we get back, but until then I'm gonna say that you better be jealous..cause this is the most amazing trip ever! The only down part about it is that I miss Youth tonight, but I'm sure it will be amazing and that'll get me even more hyped up for Youth next week. So pray that the weather won't be horrible like it's supposed to be and I will talk to ya'll in a few days!

Later Gators!

Olivia Erica Johnson ~ November 20, 1991 - September 20, 2007

As many of you know, yesterday was the one year mark of one of my best friend's death. Olivia was 15 and passed away from cancer September 20, 2007, exactly two months before her 16th birthday. She battled cancer since grade four, and was easily the nicest and strongest person I have ever met. She was always happy and laughing and making everyone around her smile. So many were mourning when she passed away, but it was what needed to happen. She is no longer in pain. Last night I was thinking about her and words started coming..so I wrote it down. When I read over it after, I started crying.

A year has gone by
Since you went away.
It seems like just yesterday
I saw you smiling.
I hear music
And your laughter fills my ears.
I think of the days
We sat and told stories.
As I sit here and remember
My heart and soul mourn.
What I'd do to see you again
Just one more day is all I ask
But you're better up there
So keep dancing with Jesus
And I'll see you again someday.
Until then, Rest In Peace
My Gaurdian Angel <3

As I Was Saying..

Ok so now I can add more to my last post. I have a spare right now and am sitting in the Library. I've done my Bio homework and now have nothing to do. BLOG TIME! WOOOT!
So last night was our big Kick-Off for youth group. The biggest thing was saying goodbye to Fusion/Shift and hello to THRIVE YOUTH CHURCH!! As all the students went into the sanctuary, us leaders ran into the pre-service prayer/masters/green room and put on our awesome red leaders shirts. (did i mention that these shirts are awesome? Great job, Kels!) Then as Jay went up to talk, we all went in and stood up on the stage. When he introduced the new name, Russel and Randy took off the old banners and a sweet picture went up on the screens. The kids were pretty loud as they cheered! It was so awesome. The worship was AMAZING, the sermon was AMAZING, and the hang out time was..well...AMAZING! I just love our youth group..words can't describe how proud I am of all of us and how excited I am to see everyone grow and walk with God so much more.

I step into the background,
Smile on my face as I watch.
Everyone laughing and joyful,
Loving each other and God.
I can't express the way
All this makes me feel.
Anxious for the future
Excited about the now.
So proud of my family
As they grow all around
Just be patient
And you'll see a miracle

The Week of Ends

This weekend was pretty packed. I worked late friday night and it was pretty good. The only part I didn't like was when one of our projecters messed up and I had to go into the theatre to explain to everyone what happened. And as some of you may know, I HATE public speaking. So I was shaking when I went in. I told everyone and then pretty much ran out. I had to go back in later with Interruption Passes and the people clapped for me and everyone said thank you and that I did a great job. So I was pretty happy about that..made me feel better.
Yesterday was a long day too. I was down at Lewis Park from 9-3:30 helping at Kids Fest. That was tons of fun..really hott though. I handed out balloons for most of it and got my picture taken by a few people..so I might be in the paper! Then after that me and Russel went to Tuscanos for dinner and I had the best ceasar salad I have ever had. I was really tired though and when I got home I went on the computer for a bit and then went to bed.
Today at church I gave a testimony in first service, which wasn't as nerve-wracking as talking to the theatre people cause I've spoken infront of the church before. After church me, Steph, Russel and Matt walked to Wendy's for lunch and then walked back to the church. My feet were DEAD! Got home, went outside for a bit and then flopped on my bed. Closed my eyes and when I opened them (which felt like 5 minutes later) an hour and a half had passed. Woot for Power Naps! Also watched a movie called Not My Life which was really good.
On a final note...I'M SO STOKED FOR KICK-OFF!!!!!!

Ok one more final note..i was searching videos on youtube, and i found probably my favourite Veggie Tales songs. I can't figure out how to post a video on here...so I'll just leave the link.

Later Gators!

Last First Day of School

So school today was pretty sweet. Being in grade 12 is funny cause all the grade 8-10's are like "omg big kids!" so i felt pretty powerful! haha. Also my classes are good. I've got Tourism, Music, Biology and at the moment I have no D block, so we're trying to fix that. I might just take a spare if there's no classes I want. AND I got an island locker, which for those of you who don't know, are the GOOD lockers. I'm stoked on that fo shoe!
We got out at 2, but I had to hang around cause I had a driving lesson at 3:15. So I hung out with a friend (Heather) and we had a pretty good talk about people changing and whatnot. It was good. Then I had my driving lesson which was better than good. I did everything right and she said I'm pretty much ready for my test, so I am excited. Pray that I pass!!
Well thats all I really have to say for now..sooo...

Later Gators!

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

So yesterday was a pretty sweet day. Worked from 12-4 and then met up with Matt. Went to his place, hung out a bit, blew a horn in each others faces, messed with my voice mail (check it out, its friggen sweet) and ate dinner. Then Russel, Jesse and Dylan came over and we all walked to the movie theatre and watched House Bunny, which was pretty good. After the movie we walked back to Matt's house and Russel drove Dylan home. Me, Jesse and Matt talked for a bit about stuff (including Jesse planning my wedding :P) and then Russel came back to drive me home. The whole drive my mind was racing "could this be it?" We got to my house and, as many of you probably already know, he asked. My heart was all *kjdhffahgBOOM* haha so yeah...we are official now. And I am very happy :)

With you in my arms,
I just want to fall asleep,
Dream with you,
No hunger,
No nothing,
You and me forever
Its not about finding somebody
That makes you smile
Its about looking for the one
That makes your heart
Sing its own love song
Looking into your eyes
Everything else fades away
All thats left is you and me
Together for enternity
