School has been great! I went to the State swim meet which was amazing and got 16th (haha) in my relay. It doesn't sound very good, but it's good for such a small team. I started track 2 weeks ago. It was really fun but I kept getting really sore. Wednesday of last week I went to the doctor cause I didn't feel good and we found out I have mono. I was really sad cause I don't get to do track at all. But God puts things in our lives for a reason. Actually, without track I'll have more time to focus on raising money for camp and LTIA! I am soooooooo excited for this summer. LTIA is first in the middle of June. We get to go to DC and do some lobbying (I think that's how you spell it) and learn all about how to witness and be a great testimony for God. I'm hoping it will be well worth the fundraising! We're going to sell t shirts, do a bake sale, and maybe some other stuff. So if you have any ideas for raising money then I would really appreciate it! Any ways, right after that we (mom and dad are going!) are going to a new camp in Texas. It costs like twice as much but Bro. Chuck said it's well worth the money. He taught at the camp last year and I'm excited to see the humungo water slide! A couple weeks ago I got to go to winter jam with my youth and it was the best concert I've been to. Toby Mac and Brandon Heath were there. I saw this new singer that has become one of my favorite named Francesca B. She's an amazing singer and I love her songs. Well I'd better go get ready for church. We're studying John on Wednesday night and I've learned A LOT about Jesus' life! Love, ABSTER!

No Excuse :)

Okay Okay so I haven't posted anything since I don't even know but it has been a VERY busy year! It has gone by so fast and I can't believe it's already 2009. We started up swimming again this week and I'm in the Dog weeks of January which means twice as hard and more work. For newyears eve our church had a fellowship with watching Tim Hawkins for about and hour full of laughter. Before that was awesome chili and soups with KARAOKE! haha. It was fun but I couldn't get mom up there to sing. Friday I went to see a movie with Blake called Bedtime Stories which was good. It was funny and cute. Then we went to Johnny's to eat with her family. I'm so excited for my birthday I can hardly wait. Also before that will be my OCDA concert and practice for 3 days. Well I'll try to start posting more often and keep you all informed of my life haha. Love ya

This Week

This week has been pretty relaxing. Tuesday I woke up at 6 and went to run. I'm not really sure if I'm going to do cross country in high school but we'll see. After we got back, I had a nap. Then we headed to the mall to just look a little. I had piano at 4 then went to eat with Blake and spent the night. We stayed up FORever trying to make her brother's b-day cake. Today, I got to sleep in! Mom and I just cleaned a bunch the whole day. Then we went to church and I was in Bro. Chuck's class for the first time. We are studying Proverbs and tonight's was Chapter 26 about the fool and the sluggard. So that's how my week has been so far. Just same old same old. Remember to pray for Bro. Aaron in Iraq and Zeke. Love, Abby :D

Ceder Hills Baptist Camp

This has been a BUSY week. The speaker, Bro. Blair Nelson was an amazing speaker and I felt like during every message he was talking right to me. My favorite message was on the publican and pharisee. The man looks on the outward appearance when God is the only one who knows how our hearts really are ,whether like the Pharisee or Publican. I also loved the message on staying pure because as I'm going to public high school next year I needed that reminder that this God's creation so we need to honor him with the things we do. This week, I met a lot of new friends which was lots of fun. I also had fun playing basketball and volleyball. All was the normal until the last night (weather wise). When we woke up thursday morning, there were 40 mph winds which was not fun with all the dirt in our eyes. Later, at noon during chapel the power kept going on and off. Then later that night at night chapel Bro. Nelson prayed that if it was His will, that the Lord could hold off the weather. And you know what? After having regular power outages all day, we didn't have ONE single one at all in the two and a 1/2 hours of message and invitation. That's not even the best part. This morning, during our last service, Bro. Fowler told us that he was watching Gary England (Amanda knows who he is) and he said he had never seen anything like it before. Really bad weather was heading right towards Binger (which is where we were) and all of a sudden, right before it got to Binger, it just stopped and headed east. God is so good! This week has been such a blessing. Here are a few pictures of the week.

This is the group right before church camp. You can tell cause if it was after we would all have huge bags under our eyes and some would probably be asleep. :)

This is Ms. Heather, my counselor. She was a great testimony during camp.

This is Charity Gerred. She is my camp counselor's daughter. She was a great buddy through out the week :)

This is our junior boys playing b-ball. They lost :(. That's ok to us girls but they were pretty frustrated lol.

This is me singing my solo. I sang Broken and Spilled Out. I love that song cause it has a great message that we should give our all to the Lord.

School's OVER!

WOW! I haven't been on the computer in a LONG! time. The last month of school was really busy with finals and saying bye to friends. The last day of school was sad but my friend Jordan and I had fun. Memorial Day weekend we went to NaNa's and ate buscuits and gravy every day for breakfast. We also got a new camera because mom accidentally dropped our other one. Now I'm getting ready for camp next week. I'm going to be the only senior girl this year but it will still be fun. I'll be posting more in two weeks about camp so love you all!

Talent Show

Hey everyone!
Well, first of all, please pray for Na-Na because this Monday she will be having surgery down in Houston, TX. We're all going down there during me and mom's spring break.
Second, I just enrolled for freshmen year at Santa Fe and I'm so excited. The only thing I'm not excited about is the enviorment.
Next was the talent show I was in last night. It was so amazing! I sang and played the guitar to Stained Glass Masquerade by Casting Crowns. I'm so glad my throat was better by last night. The day before, I got strep throat and barely got to go to it. Thankfully I got better and sang.
I'd better go pack. Bye!

Hey! So this is imbarassing but I haven't posted since NOVEMBER!!!! God has been so good to me this year though. January was caos with vocal and basketball and my birthday. Well Now I'm pretty much stress free and am getting my high school enrollment packets next week. I'm really excited and hope I will make the right choices of classes. I got to go to a CASTING CROWNS concert the other day and it was soooooooooo awesome! I sang along with every song and got some song books with my money. Jennifer came for my birthday and we ate sushi and went shopping. Last night me had a workers banquet with catered food and everything! It was really great and I young man from our church, Chris Bell, brought a devotion over the church body. In like two weeks, I am taking my friends for my late birthday party to a concert called the winter jam with 8 christian singers including Mercy Me. I'm really excited for that. Well I've got to go get supplies.

Wow! I have been so busy with basketball and singing it's not even funny. O guess what?! I made VARSITY is b-ball! I was so shocked because I'd never played for real. But now I'm learning some cool things and am excited for my first game on Thursday next week. I'm so grateful that no games are on Wednesday!!
Anyways, COCDA went well and I had a lot of fun. Now it's OCDA I'm trying for and it's the whole entire state and 7th, 8th, AND 9th graders. I've been practicing a lot and I'm happy that I already knew one song, Battle Hymn of the Republic.
Mollie's birthday is tomorrow. She'll be 11!!! She's still a puppy at heart though! Lol. School has been kinda stressful with a bunch of HW and all but God has helped me through it all. I can't wait till summer though ha ha. O and I've been "trying" to save my mula to hopefully go to yall's camp. I've been praying and asking for any babysitting opportunities. The other day I got to take care of someone's dog so that was a start.
I LOVE YOU ALL so much!!
:D Abby

Youth Video!

Hey! This is our youth's video we made about a month ago for a youth rally. The theme was Inside Out! Enjoy:

O and on saturday we went to another rally in Texas. It was so cool and personally I liked it better then Lukfata. We had these huge sumo suits that you got into and would be in a blowup ring. Then there was also a blow up jousting ring. Bro. Chuck won the so called UFC between all the youth leaders. It was lots of fun to watch and a great memory. There was also wonderful preaching. I forgot his name (oops) but he made a video about his life/ testimony. It was so inspiring because he went from being a druggy, all the way to an amazing pastor who loves the Lord. I can't wait till next year!
