, yeah, blame isaac for everything. i dunno how tina found out though…maybe she’s psychic.
i was so worried about my anatomy, but it turns out i did ok, so yeah, PRAISE GOD!
oh and we realized that afternoon that gwen’s birthday is on the 15th. we wrote her a card and everything, but she wasn’t there, so i guess we’ll celebrate next week?
sure, i’ll record the tapes for dora, i got the first part of the sermon thing, and i was so excited while listening to it. it felt like i was back at the retreat again!Â
and yes, even though i DID practice those songs, you’re still gonna have to sing. don’t try to back out of it and get me to replace you.
oh and much to my surprise, my dad wasn’t mad about the mission thing. he just said i was lucky my chinese is already pretty good, so i don’t have to learn it again. yeah, i wasn’t expecting him to say that, but it’s better than i hoped for. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR ME! i’ll continue to pray for you and your parents too.
and don’t worry, i won’t forget about friday. i thought YOU forgot last week!
If you noticed the date, this email was all the way back in 2005, my junior year in hish school. Reading this brought 2 verses to my mind:
Blessed are the pure in heart,Â for they will see God.
- Matthew 5:8
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like littleÂ children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
- Matthew 18:3
A part of me wishes that I could go back to being the way I was before, but the truth is, we can never go back to the way we used to be. However, we can make changes so that we become the someone we have always dreamed of being.
