The first picture may need a small explanation. Max and I were dissecting a frog for school this year. It was gross. But we did it. I hate dissecting things now. Not only do they stink something AWEFUL, but they also require a lot of time. Anyways, that's what we're doing in the first picture. How Max could smile while the dissected frog was stinking up the whole room, I don't know. But I couldn't, so that's why I'm making a ridiculous face. :P

A little background to the following picture: the girl in the picture is me. Our family had a slab of cement in our yard that was about twenty feet long by seven feet wide and about four to five inches thick. A couple weeks ago we had a work party at our house and destroyed the cement, loaded it, and carried it to our dump. The object of this project is to hopefully have a bigger cement slab made in the same place were basketball, tennis, and pickleball can be played.
The hardest part of the job was swinging the sledge hammer to break the foundation. My brother Maxwell challenged me to take out a section of cement and I took him up on it. It was hard, and by the next day I could count every muscle in my shoulder, but I took out that section of rock! I tell you, a little grim determination can get a job done! :P

Here's a link to it: Word Dream App
But anyways, I had some fun putting together some pictures with it and I decided to share them, one at a time, in posts. Here's the first:

But please, don't give up on our land. Keep praying for our President, and all the persons in the Supreme Court. The devil will try to use them, but in the end, God wins. He is still in control, no matter what it seems.
It's been hard for me to see our country going down hill so fast. Things have been happening that I never dreamed would happen. Things that to me is obvious sinful behavior has been slipped into our society as acceptable. And I know I'm not the only one.
I have had to pray and put my faith in God. I trust Him, but it is still a temptation to think: Why are You letting this happen God? How can we Christians fight darkness if darkness is lawfully acceptable?
So far, being a Christian in America is easy. We go to church publicly, have freedom of speech, freedom of press, and freedom to worship God any way we choose.
Maybe this is God's way of testing our true love for Him. When Christianity is no longer easy, we'll know who all are true Christians and who all aren't. This is a time during which our faith in God can be made stronger than it ever has been, or a time where our faith will crack under the strain and remain broken.
So please, pray, read your Bible, and trust in God. He knows what's going on in our lives. He was the one who decided that the Supreme Court would vote on those issues, He put our President in his office. I know He is, was, and always will be in control. Let's thank Him for it more often.

As I sit here, consuming too much coffee ice cream and enjoying the gentle breezes of summer (which has FINALLY decided to show up) I feel ...
