Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

The Untitled Hymn

One of my favorite songs. I love these words, there is so much beauty in these lines. I like several of Chris Rice's pieces. Especially "Lemonade"!

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for love is passing by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain, so
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk
Sometimes we
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!

O, and when the love spills over
And the music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!

My Grandpa had a guitar that Lydia and Gabe had fun playing with last week....even though they couldn't play a note. They thought they could. ;)

They were very unhappy that they had to be put through the torture of having their picture taken. That's such a typical "Titus" face!:)

Yesterday I began class at my new ballet school. I was very nervous and excited as I put my hair into a bun and got my clothes and bag together. I was anxious to know what this new experience would be like. :) I thought of that quote that I like that talked about trying new things, let me see if I can remember all of it:

"Do not be to afraid or to squeamish about your actions. All Life is an Experiment. The more experiments you do the better."

Life is An Experiment. This was a Experiment. ;)

I walked into a room swarming with teenage girls and above the sound of their voices I heard the teacher, who I had met at registration, call out to everyone that it was time to begin class. I grabbed my shoes and found a place at the barre. I have always been in a rather small class, twelve was the most I had ever had, so fifteen or sixteen girls seemed like a lot to me.

I enjoyed the combinations at the barre and it felt so good to be doing all the familiar steps again. I was glad I had been taught the french terms (thanks to my teacher when I was ten) and all the meanings of the words because she used them a lot. I really liked my teacher and all the girls that I talked with were very friendly. The class went well and I'm really looking forward to my next class!

I have been looking forward to it/dreading it for a month or more. I didn't have a clue what the studio would be like, what the teacher would be like, what my classmates would be like, or what the training would be like. I prayed a lot about it and I prayed that I would be happy and content there. You know what? I am happy and with time it will become a studio that I love. I'll always love my old studio the best because all my friends are there but I am happy. The Experiment was succesful.

Crunches Competition

My mom, aunt, sister, cousin, and myself had a crunches competition. The most I've ever done was 100. I tried very hard and did 700! I was very surprised I even got to 300. To a lot of people that doesn't seem like much I hate doing crunches so that was good for my body. My stomachs going to be sore tomorrow!:)
Well anyway Happy Labor Day!

We're going to see my grandparents who we haven't seen for a long time. We are very excited! We've always lived near them but since our move we live much farther away. So we miss seeing them as often as we used to.

The months that my dad was working in our new town and we were waiting for our house to sell so we could move to our new house was very hard. But the very best part of that time was Tuesday nights when Meamaw came. She brought supper and Caramel brownies which we all loved! It was always so much fun to come home on Tuesday nights after ballet and visit with her and eat dessert. :) It felt so good to sit down on the coach and talk because I was always really tired. Thank-you so much for doing that Meamaw! It was so much fun when you came each week. We can't wait to see you! Tell PawPaw I said hello!
