God is not an elephant.

This has been one of my favorite sayings and recently when I was telling this to my small group my friend showed me this video. So I’m sharing this with you! This week and next week have a record of being one of my most stressful weeks during summer. This usually causes me to be quite short tempered and mad at the people around me. But I’m really trying to live a godly life and live by the example of Jesus Christ. The people around Him put Him on a cross to DIE! And what did he do? He forgave them and showed them love. Therefore why can’t I just forgive the people around me and cast love on them?? They certainly aren’t trying to kill me… But instead I’ve chosen to hold grudges and think selfishly. This week I WILL try to make an effort to not be an elephant!

Well, yes, ma’am, I do… I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.

My two cents.

[I’m not asking for anyone’s opinions or comments or judgement because I think I’m entitled to my own opinions]

I just wanted to put out there that I don’t think drinking [alcohol] is cool. I see it as a sign of weakness. A sip or two or drinking a cup over a period of a couple hours is acceptable but if they’re drinking to have fun or to escape…nah. Why can’t people just have fun talking and hanging out together? I feel like some people believe they can only enjoy themselves with the company of friends if there’s alcohol involved. Same goes for drugs.

[I don’t mean to sound like a hypocrite. I am weak and prone to falling but I’m able to be strong through the Lord.]

Personal FriSat 21July2012

ONE week, ONE day, and about ELEVEN hours until HS CBM Camp! (Mama Mia just started playing xD) So I decided to write about why I’m so excited! Well I’ll start off by saying that my hopes are up really high for this year to be a really fun year. This is because last year I heard rumors that HS CBM is not as fun as JH CBM and in contrast is “horrible” to a certain extent so I was expecting it to be terrible. Instead I had a really fun time. Now I’ll tell you what exactly is CBM Camp. CBM (ChineseBibleMission) was started in 1958 by my great uncle Pastor Sen and his wife Auntie June. Currently the whole organization (CBM) is run by my dad’s cousin Uncle Tim(does that make him my second uncle?). It started out as a mission to reach out to Chinese people in the Sacramento (and eventually the Bay) Area. Part of that mission was to reach out to the whole entire family. So Uncle Sen started CBM Camp a few years later. And I’m so glad he did!!(: So to this day it has had two camps (HighSchool and JuniorHigh) every year. At CBM Camp we go through a “spiritual reboot” as I like to call it where we figure out where we are in our Christian walk and where we can improve and put our current walk with God in perspective. We also meet other growing Christians our age from the Sacto and Bay Area. The whole camp is five nights running from Monday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. There are crafts, organized rec, skits, worship, swimming, nature gazing, devos (doing them outside is the best!) lifewalks, campfire, a night game, and so so so much more!
Yeah…I kinda went over my time frame for now it is Sunday morning so I better wrap this up. Since I mentioned wrapping things up I finally put my hair wrap back in! and my watch came in! and I may order my longboard tomato or Monday (hopefully! or at least before CBM Camp) I just get very cautious when spending a big chunk of money…yeah. I don’t wanna get into that really so I’ll see yah guys next week!!! :D
