elijah found cupcake's kittens finally and now they live in my room. its ok during the day but at night when tomo is in here as well then it gets a bit nutty. john's rabbit died yesterday so i skinned it to make him mittens or something out of the fur and then he wanted me to take the rabbit apart so that he can see the unborn babies, so we had a little biology lesson and even with how i like dissecting and all, that was a little gross. its nice how my younger brothers can get over a dead pet so easily and john has another rabbit all picked out that he wants already. my brain is so blank right now for what to write and the internet keeps stopping. what did i write about before? like i used to be able to write big long things and now its like staring at the screen and thinking of food. whoa the internet is working now and its been working longer than a minute. my mom is making cookies and i am going to bring milk tonight because juice and cookies don't mix unless your a baby who doesn't care. ok i quit, i cant think of anything to write, so i'll just put a pic on of the cat's kittens.

this is what we had dinner yesterday and i think it was thoroughly enjoyed.
the past two weeks my family and i have been gone to maranatha and a family reunion in pennsylvania, and i am including joseph as part of my family. the preaching at camp was good and it seems every year i get convicted of being too much of the world instead of just in it and passing through. the reunion was fun, we got to meet a new uncle and two new cousins but sadly aunt johanna and my brother couldn't make it.
david morris is going to be preaching every night this coming week and i am anxious to see what God will do through him. maybe it wont be anything that everyone will see and know about but if one person is saved or has a personal revival than its good. but then again we have been praying for revival for so long it would be nice to see it happen at least once in my lifetime. i don't want to sound to whatever but if we all ask great things of God then we should expect great things to happen, i just hope we are ready and that we wont quench it if it does come.
which is more important, to spend most of your time witnessing to your own family or to your friends and people you don't know or are they both equally important? sadly i don't do much of either, for my friends i'm to afraid of what they will think if i start talking "religion" and besides i like that they think i'm normal and for my family i think its my parents job or basically its anybody's job but mine. i can pray for them all and hope that someday they will come to know Christ but i leave the actual working with them and talking to them to someone else. its so hard to change a habit but with His help i know i can. i want to be able to not care what they say about me so long as i've said that thing that's popped into my head instead of pretending i didn't hear it.
create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a right spirit in me, cast me not away from Thy presence oh Lord and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me, restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation and renew a right spirit in me.
theres an attempt at a post, i sorta felt like writing something but wasn't sure what so i just started writing.

Theres a line thats been drawn through the ages;
On that line stands the old rugged cross.
On that cross a battle is raging
For the gain of man's soul or his loss.
On one side march the forces of evil,
All the demons and devils of hell.
On the other, the angels of glory,
And they meet on Golgotha's hill.
The earth shakes with the force of the conflict;
The sun refuses to shine;
For there hangs God's Son in the balance.
And then through the darkness He cries:
It is finished, the battle is over;
It is finished, there'll be no more war.
It is finished, the end of the conflict;
It is finished, and Jesus is Lord.
Yet in my heart the battle was raging;
Not all pris'ners of war had come home.
They were battlefields of my own making;
Didn't know that the war had been won.
Then I heard that the King of the Ages
Had fought all the battle for me
And vict'ry was mine for the claiming,
And now, praise His name, I am free.
