So wow! I've been doing this devotional, by Kelly Minter, on Ruth, and it's been amazing. I strongly recommend that you read it, and there's even a cd by Kelly Minter herself that goes with it. It's called Life, Lose, and Legacy, it has become one of my favorites. <3> Proverbs 19:21 (New International Version)

 21 Many are the plans in a man's heart, 
       but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.

So have you been seeing that rain boots are are coming back into style? At first I though, "Hmm not really my thing", but then I saw some of the designs and saw other people wearing them. They really are cute, and so fashionable! They also provide a nice dry place for your jeans and feet when it rains. :) So here's some info about where the style originated from. I'll do stuff like this periodically to keep you informed about the new fashions and their origins. So the rain boots started to come into style in 1817, but they were called the wellington and they were in mens fashions..... Haha to find out more go to http://www.funkyrainboots.com/rainboot-history.html. Enjoy!

FIrst Day

So today was the first day back to school for me. It went well. Just different, new arrangements, new teachers, and new people. I like really all of my teachers and I hope that I have that attitude in two or three weeks from now. :) How was your first day? Tell me! The world wants to hear LoL.

Ever since I can remember I have always love school shopping. Yes it means having to go back to school, but for some reason I absolutely love it! Especially, call me weird, school shopping at Target. The new folders, notebooks, pencils, ahhh! I love all of it! Especially cause we, my mom and sister, make a whole day of it, and it's so much fun. So here's a list of what to have for the school.

  • Folders, one for each class would be good. That way you have a good organization during the year
  • Binders
  • Agendas, if you do a sport or something like band or in my case show choir, have an agenda for your classes and one for you extra whatever
  • Pencil pouch, to put in your purse or back pack for pencils of course and other little things
  • Pencils ( duh )
  • Pens
  • Locker shelf, again it's really important to have organization 
  • Backpack 
  • Hand sanitizer 
  • Sticky Tabs, to put in the textbooks to mark where you are
  • Notebooks
  • Hole Puncher, for those loose leaf papers that are really annoying but teachers give us any way
So that's all I can really think of to get you through the school year.  Above are all of my school supplies. The folders and binders are really cool! They have Bible verses on them and they say, "I am and an alien in this world" and "I am not ashamed". My mom and I found them in the least likely place, Walmart, and the first one we found was with the regular black binders. So we looked around then we found the rest of them! It was totally a "God thing". I love when He sends stuff like that! :D

So it's back to school, and that brings a lot of new things. New class, new teachers, sometimes new friends, and new clothes!! Ah clothes! I'll admit I am very much a shopaholic. I love shopping and looking at the clothes. Have you ever seen Confessions of a Shopaholic? Well that's me! Here's a quote from the movie that sums me up, "A man will never love you or treat you as well as a store. If a man doesn't fit, you can't exchange him seven days later for a gorgeous cashmere sweater. And a store always smells good. A store can awaken a want for things you never even knew you needed. And when your fingers first grasp those shiny, new bags... oh yes... oh yes." Yeah I love shopping! So when school comes around I can't wait to go to look for new fall clothes. One thing I've started to do is look at pictures online of what everyone is wearing this fall. Though I'm all for wearing your own style it's always good to make sure you're "in style".So the following are pictures of what people are wearing this fall, and what I myself have gotten for this fall.

Back to Business.

      So school is starting back, and that brings us a lot of responsibility. Oh how exciting right? NOT! I actually don't mind school to bad except for the waking up early, doing reports, and waking up early! There's one thing though that we, as Christians, are supposed to do, and that is witness, witness, witness. 
 During a camp I went to this summer we had chapel every night, and one night we had  a guest speaker. His lesson was all about witnessing, and being the light in this dark world. The verse he used was Isaiah 43:12, "I have declared, and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God."  That's a huge job!!! Being THE witnesses to tell others about God??  It really hit me hard cause I am not always good at that. Sometimes we make all these excuses not to tell others, "I'm to busy", "I don't want to lose my friends", and the most common, " I'll do it tomorrow".  We sometimes miss out on great chances to talk about God to our friends, and we mostly we miss out on pleasing God. So rather you go to  a Christian school, Catholic, or Public, you always have to keep witnessing!! 
After the lesson the speaker gave all of a us all a glow stick. He told us that we couldn't break it until someone told us that we had been a light. So it keeps as wanting and trying to be light in this dark world. So that one day we will be able to break our glow sticks, but most importantly so that one day we will be able to hear God say to us, "Well done my good and faithful servant" So it's time to get back to business.
