Once again...it's snowing. Tiny white flakes are drifting from a gray sky, dusting the ground in what looks like powdered sugar. (Probably doesn't taste as good, but, oh well...) I'm sitting here typing away, listening to the Gladiator soundtrack by Hans Zimmer. (An excellent piece of music, might I add!)
I just got a notice from my dear friend that it's POURING the snow over there, and now it's iced over, and no one can go anywhere....I wish it would do that here!!! (My dad's trusty Dodge Durango SUV could probably go anywhere, though....*grin*)
On a slightly random thought...SUVs are sooo cool! I LOVE them! Fourwheel drive, can tread through snow VERY well, or make the best car-chase scene you've ever laid eyes on in movies. In other words...SUVs rule. >:)
Ah....I really don't know what to post. :S I'm out of ideas. I posted a whole bunch last week, and now...my brain is not functioning. (But what's new about that, right?:)
I'm already planning my 17th Birthday! I do this almost every time; 6 months before. ^.^ Here's the battle plan: Asian themed birthday. (Shocker, eh?) Mom and I are planning on fixing Korean bulgogi and kimchee with rice and steamed vegetables, possibly some Chinese cauliflower "gruel" (which "gruel" was a really bad name, because it's FAAAAAR from it!), and for dessert, we're going to try something slightly on th odd side: Japanese green tea ice cream and sponge cake! We're going to eat with chopsticks, drink out of Japanese tea cups, and I'm hoping to buy these really cute Chinese New Year favors to give to my friends.
Also...for those of you who are wondering...in stead of gifts, I'm asking everyone to make a donation to Voice of the Martyrs or Open Doors USA. That's the best gift you can give me and THEY need it far more than I need anything!=D
So. That's my plan. :) I'm looking forward to it! It'll be lots of fun.
Alright...on a last note, I read a chapter in my Bible this morning that really stuck out:
"Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it."
And 15 is what WE'RE required to do in order gain this:
"If you love Me, you will keep My commandments."
He says this again in verses 21 and 23. If we love Him, He rewards us. If we love Him, we keep His commandments. This is very important to remember.
If we love Him.....
