Hello World!
It's been forever since i've been on here. Life's been crazy, but in a good way.
I've laughed, smiled, cried, been happy, been sad, learned things, forgotten things, been upset, been content. Made new friends, re-connected with old friends. Learned a lot about myself, and learned a lot about others. But I'm here nowww! (:
So, Friday night, the football game, we lost. But played really well.
After the game, we had FCA, it's the bomb, and Mr. Sheek talked about Laminin. Laminin by definition is "the basement membrane, which is a protein network foundation for most cells and organs." Now you're wondering why in the world you should keep reading this, and why i am telling you this. Well I'm here to tell you that Laminin is what our bodies is made up of. Scripture says that God is in us. And people wonder how in the world can God be "In" us. Well Laminin is proof. Laminin is, well let me show you what Laminin is.

how cool is that?! Laminin is in the shape of the cross. God is literally "In Us". I thought that was really cool.I's its one of those simple ways i feel like God shows that he loves us. He could have made this membrane in our bodies any shape he wanted to, but he chose a cross. (:
Life is really flying by right now, and I;ve learned that i can't do it without God. So that's my update it's simple, yet totally cool!
If you want to see more on Laminin, go check out
you will be amazed!
(: peaceee.

There's No Such Thing as Perfect People.

Sorry I haven't been on here in awhile. I'll do a quick recap of my week. 
Monday- Half day. lameee. I find half days quite possibly the most pointless days a school can have, you walk into the classroom and hear "it's going to be a great year, here is your syllabus. get it signed." and then you leave. 
Tuesday- I got a pretty good feel for my classes. i really like my english class, english happens to be my favorite subject. Writing is something i enjoy. 
Wednesday- i had my first softball game of the year. We won, which was a big deal. I really do enjoy spending time with my team mates. I'm making some good friends. But the final score was 6 to 3.
Thursday- Thursday seemed like it was never going to end. It just felt like the longest day of the week. 
Friday- we had yet another softball game. we played troup county and won 12-4, grabbed dinner with the team and then  was able to hang out with friends. 
Saturday- my family drove to Atlanta to spend time with mom's side of the family. My cousins really are great, and i wish that i could see them more. 
Today- i slept later than i have for awhile which was oh so nice. Now i am doing homework waiting for Casey to come over to help me with algebra 2 homework. 

My mom and I have been talking a lot lately about the phrase "Now that I am here- What's next Lord?" this is what i try to wake up each morning saying. Some mornings it's the easiest thing in the world to say and other mornings I have to really make myself say it. But i say it because I feel like by saying it I am letting God have full control. Not that he doesn't already have it, but i am telling him i will NOT argue anymore with him. Whatever he wants me to do next i will do.  Lately i feel like i am having trouble spending time with God because of school, softball and friends. STUPID EXCUSE i know. So that is one of my goals to MAKE time for God. The Lyrics"  There's no such thing as perfect people
There's no such thing as a perfect life
So come as you are, broken and scared
Lift up your heart and be amazed
And be changed by a perfect God"
are my new life lyrics you could call them. Not only have I not been able to find time for God lately, but I have been so scared that because i have messed up lately, he will not want to hear from me. But he DOES want to. How great is that? (:
So tell me, what is your life lyric or key quote? 
my cousins make me happy :)

Stop and Stare.

Boy, was it hot today. Not just kind of hot, it was i need to constantly carry around a bottle of water with me hot. Today I worked down at the Rivercenter, Monkey Joe's had a jump down there and Jessica, a fellow employee, and I were assigned to it. When we got down town this morning, at 9 o'clock, nobody was there, so we drove through historic columbus. It is oh so pretty! I've been down there many times but i've never really stopped and looked. I feel like that's my thing, I've seen things before but if i really took the time to stop and look at it, I could see so much more! Lately, the world has been revolving around me, wait let me correct that. MY world has been revolving around me. but it's gotten better. and I am still working on it! Now, not only do i want to make the step of not being so self centered but i want to stop and really look a life. Which leads into my this week i learned.
This week, while i actually stopped to see what was around me I learned.. . . .
-Softball is my outlet, if i have ANY anger I get it out in the field.
- My best friend really is there for me whenever i need her to be.
- I need God in my life every single day, every single second of the day.
- Olive Garden's bread sticks are the bomb. (:
- Communication is the KEY to any relationship, whether it be friendship or dating.
- Trust is something I am finally being able to gain.
- the thought of YWAM excites me so much i want to explode!
- I really will miss my friends that have gone off to college.
- School starts tomorrow and I cannot wait to have something to focus all of my attention on.
- Being left handed is something i really like about myself.
- God thinks that I am beautiful and that is more than any human could ever tell me.
- Down Town is one of my favorite places ever.
- My church really does fill me up, and i genuinely enjoy going there.
- I'm not scared of what people think of me anymore.

That's all for now, I had something else that i was going to blog about, BUT, i lost it. :(

I'm off to get ready for school tomorrow
i like this picture quite a bit, i took it at frontier. (:

this picture really brings out the full of emotion of frontier (: hahaha.

Such A Gross Day.

It's gross outside today.
When i stepped outside i got the same feeling i get when i step out of the shower and my bathroom is warm, and moist because my shower was so hot.

This morning i went to get my haircut and I noticed it was not pretty outside at all. It's one of those days when you could just throw your hair into a ponytail and go. But because I have bangs i cannot, and I have to style my hair is some way. :/
my haircut, i think i like it :)

This Week, I've finally learned, life goes on.
Just because I am having a bad day does not mean everyone else in the world is. This is tough to realize, because me, being a teenage girl, feels like the world revolves around me. NEWS FLASH: It doesn't. I feel like that is what God has been trying to show me all week. The world does not revolve around Hannah. I have been acting selfish and inconsiderate in my past, but no more. I can't change in a day, but i can start working on changing today. So today, on this Thursday in August I will try to change. This is one of my favorite verses. And so is the next one. 

Matthew 6:25-34 
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 

Psalm 46
"God is our refuge and strength, 
an ever-present help in trouble. 
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way 
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 
though its waters roar and foam 
and the mountains quake with their surging."

so here's where you come in, tell me what helps you when you worry about the future or get too caught up in yourself. Let me know, we can chat :) 
my sister makes me smile (:

What a Day.

Today I was able to do one of my favorite things in the world. babysit. For possibly the cutest little boy in the world. 
(: we had some fun! He's quite a catch.  

Today was tough at softball, We worked quite hard, but i still enjoy it. 
School starts in a week, scary to think about, yet exciting! 
I can't wait to see everyone and get back into the swing of things. 
I can't help but to wonder if God likes school starting back for kids because we get so busy that sometimes God is not our first priority, which it terrible but true. 
One of my goals this year is to make time for God everyday,  because this summer it's been very flexible but it's not so flexible when school does start. 
But Mark my words, I WILL make time for him, because he makes time for me! 
I'm continuing to pray about my decisions regarding YWAM. and my future. 
I'm excited to see what God has in store for my life! 
I'm Off to the lake for a bit, with some friends and I am dying to go tubing! 
Trying to take in the last little parts of summer! 

(: this picture will always bring a smile to my face, these girls make me happy! 
i miss frontier terribly. 

peace outtttt.
