Writer's Block: Decision Time

When you need to make a difficult decision, what kind of resources do you consult for guidance?
God/ The Bible
My parents
My friends
People with experience in what I'm deciding

*In that order

Last Day of Summer

So. Today is the official last day of summer. And it's 10:30, so it's time for me to sleep. Tomorrow is the start of school, the day I need to change my schedule. So, yeah. Fun stuff. I have to ride the bus home and then drive to school again because I don't have a parking pass yet.
Last day of summer. That's quite depressing.  T.T  <-- teary face

Anyway, goodnight, and I'll see you all on the weekends (no computer time during school days except for facebook for 15 minutes. Family rule).

Writer's Block: Good Days and Bad Days

What is your least favorite day of the week? And your favorite?
Least Fave: Mondays
Favorite: Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays
Fridays- end of school
Saturdays- band competitions
Sundays- youth group

God, What's Wrong?

It's like I'm bipolar or something! One minute I'm okay, somewhat happy, and then the next I'm yelling at everyone nearest me for just existing! Like my brother and sister were lid surfing down our stairs and I started yelling at them. They started doing something and I started to lose it. I can't calm down, especially when they won't leave this room! I like my privacy, and they can't respect that. But I am yelling at them, so...
God, I'm losing it! Please help me! I don't know what's wrong, other than I've had an awful day! I'm sobbing here.
I NEED PRAYER

"Last Days" of band camp

So I don't consider band camp to be over until the end of Lazy Daze (the day, not just the event). Then school starts, and it's all uphill/downhill, whatever you say.

Cool. That's all. I'll think of more later.

Band Camp *Bonanza*

Erg, so band camp (aka. the start of school) is here.
It's pretty painful on my second day (my family went to a family reunion at the beach for the first three days). I had a major headache last night and my shoulders were sore, but Advil cures everything.
Now my legs and arms are sore. Go figure. It's only 7:20 am, but I usually leave with my brother around 7:40. Oh, not to mention we both got up at 5:30 this morning. Fun stuff.

Last night went kinda fast, thank goodness. Basics are challenging, but yesterday was overcast, so I wonder what it will be like today (sunny and bright). My poor brother though. He didn't want to listen to what I was trying to teach him at the beach, so he's paying for it now, in the form of "I hate band" attitude, but he has to come to band.
The show's pretty amazing, but I still don't have all the music. And I'm just learning the first ten or so pages of drill. I've got it mostly down. Anything from page 6 and on, then page 18 and on. It's quite the experience.

So anyway, duty calls (in the form of my brother bugging me to empty the trash).

Writer's Block: Le Quatorze Juillet

Happy Bastille Day! Today the French celebrate the event that sparked the French revolution. In honor of our Francophone friends, what is your favorite French thing? Bonus points for answers en français.
The French Revolution was my favorite historical event! Fave French Thing: the French language. It's so pretty! Especially spoken by a native of France.
Happy Bastille Day :) 

Praise You in This Storm

*During the service yesterday morning, the speaker was talking about storms. And I'm kinda in a storm*

Praise You in This Storm
words by Mark Hall/music by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus:
And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

Chorus

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Chorus

Strokes and other health problems

Hey all, um, my Nana just had what sounds like a stroke. My dad told me that she was really tired yesterday, and when she woke up this morning, she was partially paralyzed.
From what my dad tells me, Nana can't recognize people in photos, and when she was talking to my dad on the phone, she was saying stuff that was odd and didn't make sense. Stuff about the "bees buzzing, swarming around in my head." (I don't know about you, but I think that's probably her trying to say something about what was happening in her brain, but I don't know for sure).
Yeah, anyway, could you just pray for her? 
She's had a few health problems recently: a ministroke, shingles, and now this. She's been in an accident, too, but that was a while ago.

Anyway, please keep her in your prayers. Thanks!

Live Free or Let Me Die lyrics


*Got them off some lyrics website. I looked up what some people said about the meaning of this song, and it's pretty much along the lines of turning from God leaves you broken, and only God can heal you and make you free*



Death until the dust, and we're waiting
Ruined in the rust, of our craving
It feels like, it feels like
Don't you know the cost, of your betrayal?
You're the one that's lost, you're gonna fail
It feels like, it feels like you're gasping with all your might

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken veins
There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)
You can't take away my pride, I won't be denied
There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)

Insects walk below, I'm on a wire
Fire will burn below, but I am higher
It feels like, it feels like
Don't you know the cost, of your betrayal?
You're the one that's lost, you're gonna fail
It feels like, it feels like you're gasping with all your might

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken veins
There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)
You can't take away my pride, I won't be denied
There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)

Do you remember how
You became who you are now?
Do you remember how
It felt to breathe without
Gasping with all your might?

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken veins
Nothing left to fight

You can't take away my strength
Fix these broken veins
There's nothing left to fight (Live free or let me die)
You can't take away my pride, I won't be denied
There's nothing left to fight
Nothing left to fight (Nothing left to fight)
Live free or let me die
Live free or let me die
Live free or let me die
