My birthday

Tuesday, June 25, I turned 13. For my birthday my dad and I went to Purtis Creek State Park to canoe. I chose this  because I wanted to practice before our church youth trip,and I thought that canoeing looked liked fun. When we first arrived, we went to the office and rented a canoe (you get a discount if you have a State Park Pass) and hit the water. It was windy, so we weren't able to canoe over the whole lake, but we stayed near a cove and went fishing. Although we did not catch anything; I got a lot of practice and had a great time with my dad. When we came home I opened my presents and played Canasta. My presents included christian books, stamps ( for my collection), jelly beans, money and clothes. Then my dad and siblings looked through my stamp collection; while mom made dinner. Dinner consisted of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, black eyed peas, and rolls with chocolate pie for dessert. I had a great birthday and I hope that you do too.

One of my many hobbies is stamp collecting. What first made me start collecting stamps was when I was going through our garage's loft and found my Dad's old stamp collection, which he let me have. Since then, I have started keeping interesting stamps which I find, and my grandparents, who owned a business sent me their stamps which they received. When my great grandmother passed away I was given her stamp collection which was very fascinating because she went on many trips and brought back stamps from her travels. I have around five hundred stamps in my collection. If you are interested in collecting stamps I would recommend going to a local hobby store such as Hobby Lobby and buy a stamp collecting package. The package comes with stamp sleeves, a stamp collecting book, and stamps.

What are some of your hobbies?

A helpful stamp book which I use.

Lately, in the news there has been a lot of sad events going on and I would just like to remind you all to keep praying for the people who were affected.

James 5:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another,that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
  • Moore,Oklahoma tornado; still keep the victims in your prayers as they suffer with the loss of their loved ones and as they rebuild.
  • Houston, Texas Fire; 4 firefighters died and 5 are hurt badly. Please pray for their friends and family as they grieve. 

  • El Reno, Oklahoma flooding and tornado keep these people in your prayers. 
An example that prayer really works is that my family and I prayed for 14 years that we would move from a suburb to land in a rural town. Now we have the home of our dreams and 96 acres!! Also, I had bad hearing problems when I was younger and had to have a reconstructed ear drum. By the grace of God my hear has become average. 

If you have any prayer request I will be glad to pray for it/them.
