First of all, I'm listening to Biffy Clyro's FANTABULOUS song Folding Stars again... And I'm just about to scream out the chorus....
"*Awesome drumming/guitar section* ELEANOR!!!!!!!! Woah, ELEANOR!!!!!!!!!!! I would do anything for another minute with you, because it's not getting easier, it's not getting easier... You will be folding stars, You're Eleanor... You can't ever understand, that it's not getting easier, it's not getting easier... I hope that you're folding stars."
I LOVE THAT SONG!!!!!!!!!! =D
AND I LOVE the next song, that's on right..... Now!!! Glitter And Trauma. (In case you just wanted to listen to it... Which you will, or you can get off my blog.. RIGHT NOW!!!)
By the way, this blog is completely random because I'm just writing things as I think them... YAY!
Anyways, so it was Christmas on Saturday, and I had a most lovely day. I got a towel, and the brand is "Just Kidding!" I laughed so much when I got it, because my slogan thing is "JUST KIDDING!" =D
The best gift I received would, without a doubt, be a donation card to SIDS and Kids. You buy a card from the SIDS and Kids website, and the donation goes to the foundation to help save babies lives, while they send you the card to include a message to give to someone as a card. It's such a great idea, and I think more people should contribute and help save babies lives.
Christmas is about a superly dooperly amazing fantastic balismically epically awesome (enter every single word that is a synonym of "good" x infinity) bit of Heaven coming down to earth: Jesus. So, every year on the 25th December,Christians across the world come together and celebrate Jesus' birth... It's quite lovely really, because this wasn't any ordinary baby... He was a super hero baby, literally. Jesus grew up and saved so many people's lives by dying on the cross for us. Pretty cool, huh?
So, next time you receive a gift from someone, or have a family lunch, or do whatever it is that you do on Christmas, remember why you're even doing it. Without Jesus' we wouldn't even have Christmas, let alone be alive to have it.
I would really love to thank all my Christian friends out there who aren't afraid to be committed and have a relationship with God. It's really encouraging to see all of you working hard to maintain that relationship, and help others have one too... I would especially like to thank those of you who have helped me grow in my faith. I won't name you all, just a few... If I don't name you, you know who you are.
You are such an amazing Sister in Christ, and you are always helping me read my bible and pray. Thank you so much for being my first friend at church, and for doing everything you can to keep our friendship. You're such a blessing to know, and I can't wait to continue watching you grow into a lovely Daughter of God. I love you Sis =)
Thank you so much for helping me in my toughest times, for praying for me, and for continuously giving me bible verses. You really challenged me to actually get out my bible for the first time in so long, when you gave me those awesome verses one day. Thank you for being such a fantasmical friend, and for not giving up on me. You're awesome! =)
To All My Youth Leaders,
Whether you know what's going on in my life or not, thank you for asking, for caring, and for helping me in the best way possible- Through God. Thank you for praying for me, and with me. I thank you especially to Essy, for being there for me through my toughest time this year. Thank you for being a shoulder to cry on, someone I can trust so much, and for letting me come to you whenever I need someone to talk to. Love you =)
To My Awesome Brother, and Best Friend For Life, Daniel James/Levie/Lever, (You can get me back for that =P)
All I can say is.....
Just kidding! That's not all I can say...
Thank you so much for being my bestest friend in the whole wide world, and beyond! Since the start of last year we've just kinda clicked and have been slowly developing our awesome friendship into one of the best best-friendships I've ever had. Though we have our silly, meaningless arguments, and "creative discussions" about music, girls, guys, Hungry Jacks vs Maccas, we still pull through together, and are still the best of friends. Thank you so much for being there for me the whole way through... EVERYTHING over the past year and a bit. I can't thank you enough for being such a super-spectacular shoulder to cry on, shopping buddy, and a movie-marathon friend. Thank you for buying me chocolate all the time, and for understanding that I have mood swings, and for also understanding that The Offspring is better than Metallica, and other band that you can think of... Thank you for also being one of the most unique friends I've ever met! I love how we share the same taste in almost everything, and how we don't care what people think us, and how we both used to rock out to Tenacious D, and other freakin' awesome bands... Thank you for buying me that awesome shirt, chocolate, and Hulk toy from that machine thingo... It's name is still "Daniel James," and it's on my bookshelf in my room.... You are such an awesome friend, and I just know that we'll be FRIENDS FOREVER!!!!! *Does Yugioh hand-smiley-face thing* I love you so much, Levie, my bestest friend, and bro! =D
And last but not least....
There's not much that you don't already know...
Thank you so much for being such a super-dooperly-fantastic-balismical best friend, and Brother in Christ. I can't ever thank you enough. You're such a blessing, and I thank God everyday for blessing me with such a wonderful person to have in my life. You've been a shoulder to cry on, an advice-giver (and receiver), someone I can trust with my life, and just such an amazing person! Thank you so much for allowing me to trust you with a lot, probably more than you expected. Thank you for praying for me, and especially with me, and thank you for changing my life... That Thursday Night, you read me a passage in Gloria Jeans, that seriously wouldn't get out of my head for about 3 weeks, if not longer.
2 Corinthians 5:11-6:2
"The Ministry of Reconciliation
11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. 12 We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. 13 If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
and in the day of salvation I helped you.”
