A woman had a beautiful black cat with white feet, named Socks. Socks spent his days outside and came indoors only at night. One cool October evening, he disappeared.

She searched for him high and low, for several days, but all in vain. The following spring, however, Socks reappeared, looking healthy and clean. She figured he’d just been out sowing his wild oats, and let it go at that.

Everything was back to normal until that autumn, when Socks once again disappeared. The next spring, just as the prior year, he returned. When it happened for the third year in a row, she became very perplexed, and decided to investigate. She started by asking her neighbors to see what, if any, information they might have.

She was down to the last house on the block, the home of an older couple. If they didn’t have the answer, she wasn’t sure where she would turn. So she went up and knocked on the door. The lady of the house answered, and she asked her, “By any chance, have you ever seen a black cat with 4 white feet around here?”

“A black cat?” the woman said. “With 4 white feet? Oh my, yes! He’s the sweetest thing. My husband and I kept seeing him outside every fall. We hated it that the poor thing had to be out in the cold, so we decided that when we go south for the winter, we’d take him with us. He’s been going to Florida with us every winter for the last few years.”

Well, thank the Lord, the service at the senior citizen’s apartment went very well. I gave my testimony, which I was finally able to make somewhat interesting and longer. Me and Benjamin gave our guitar special, that was fun. We sang Shine Jesus Shine, while playing guitar. I was happy because I didn’t have to play the piano at all *grin*.
Well, since you’re all probably wondering, (actually probably don’t even want to know. too bad, I’m gonna tell you anyway! And you have to read it! That is if you want to get to the fun quote at the end 😛 ) I got through the dumb song we had to do at the beginning, even though it wasn’t really that good or fun or interesting. Anyway, aside from that part, it was a really fun! I think we should do it again. I really enjoyed giving my testimony even though I abhore writing things for speaking, it was fun.

Till next post.

Well, that stinks! Actually I’m really not that dissapointed, but I just found out today that my speech teacher thought that nobody was going to the speech tournament tomorrow. So, obviously she didn’t get me registered. So, in all my worriedness and getting prepared, I guess I won’t be actually doing it. Thanks, to whoever prayed for me anyway. I still need some prayers, since this sunday I will be helping out in the service our youth group is doing at the senior citizens apartments. Also, the competition tomorrow, is a sort of practice tournament, only in that we can’t qualify for anything through it. However in a month they will be having a real tournament, and I am planning on going to that one. I gave my speech again today for my speech class, but this time memorized. Before I hadn’t given it memorized. I got some very pleasent feedback, they all really liked it along with changing one of my character’s voices to a french accent. That went well too.
So, that was encouraging. Hopefully I’ll be able to compete next time.

Till next post.

Well, I had a good time skiing. It was more cold this year than any other I think. I didn’t enjoy the skiing I did in the morning as much because my face was going solid. After lunch however I had a good time. I skied with Sergey’s friend Mason mostly, because he liked going down blue runs, and I did too. We liked going really fast down them. I wanted to go on Mary Jane, but we couldn’t figure out a way to get to it without actually driving to the parking lot. Later I figured out a way that would have worked…
too bad.
It was pretty good anyway. I’m really not very sore interestingly enough. I think it’s because I didn’t do any blue blacks or anything.
I did some jumping, that was cool. I got some air while going really fast down a blue hill that was starting to form little tiny ‘almost moguls’ so I went off those and got some air. I did a few small jumps from trails in the forest, that was fun. The funniest part was when I went off this rather large jump from a trail going back on to a run, and I went high enough that I started to tip wrong, and so I screamed. It was embarrasing because it wasn’t really a large jump and I wasn’t going that fast either. I actually never really fell down the whole time, which was cool. I got a little close to wiping out at full speed on a blue. I slowed down after that. The only real fall I had was at the end. I came speeding down the hill and did some expert turning avoiding people and the fences at the end, and then did a nice little stop perfectly. Then, I lost my balence just standing there, and fell sideways a little but didn’t actually get to the ground, because I caught myself with my hand. That’s pretty cool.

Well, I have a speech tournament this weekend. Pray that I do well. One question, I have a five minute humorous speech I’m entering. The speech tournament lasts all day and not only that it’s in Parker! Is it fair that I have to be there all day to enter my five minute speech?
Another thing I’m going to need a ton of prayer for, is the youth group’s senior service coming up. I have to perfect a testimony I need to give by next sunday. I have worked on it some, but I’ve never written (or given) a testimony before, and I’m somewhat at a loss as to how to make it worth listening to. (concieted as I may seem, I really don’t enjoy talking about my life’s story that much. Things happen and I move on and forget about them. Boy doesn’t that come in handy when people want to know everything interesting you’ve done in your life)
Also, I need prayer that I will have enough humility to not lose my sanity. We get to do a rather, (how should I put it) humiliating (I guess)and uncivilized (but more like, something any highschooler should not be caught doing)song for this same service, where we sing along with a tape of little kids singing a rather, (this is a more toned down version of what I think) unedifying (or, not worth watching) song.
Oh well, at least I don’t have to put on a cowboy hat and dance around the stage with a toy horse….

So, pray for my sanity this week. It’s a good thing I went skiing this monday, should keep me a little more relaxed (at least I certainly hope so).

Till next time.

Well, I’m going skiing tomorrow. It should be fun. Max, Sergay, Mason, Benjamin, and Chandler are going too. I’m not sure who else is going.
should be great fun. I’m probably going to try some black diamonds and moguls and such. We’ll see.

Thanks KC! 🙂
So, check it out. Let me know what you think of the theme, and style of the worpress based blog over at; http://www.deviantem.com/

Such a great quote…

Well, I didn’t get to post this until today, but last Friday we had a church concert, and I got to play my recital song. It was good, but I for some reason whenever I go to play in front of people my hands get way shaky even though I wasn’t really nervous. Anyway, it was pretty cool. I’d have to say the snacks afterwards were quite fun. Anyway I have alot of school to do so.

Till next time.
