I wrote a song....

Dare you to
Actually pick up the

Ask you to
Really mean it when you're

Come out of your hole
Come out into the light

Come out of that place
Throw it all out of sight

Please someone
Hold you, tell you what you're

Get up now
There's a reason for your

Come out of your room
Come out of your night

Come out of this dark
Come on, you'll be alright

Come out
Come on
I love you
Don't go

Come out of your room
Count out of your night

Come out of this dark
Come on,
You'll be,

So I was bored! >.<

And I am beginning to not like >.< face...

There's always something happening. Right now, the wind is blowing really hard outside, causing many things to be pushed about. Sometimes, I spend my time applying the weather to people, which may seem strange, but is an interesting thing to compare upon. Think about the wind when it is strongly blowing. It is almost moody; blowing fiercely one moment and completely quiet the next. But only for a short time does it stop in it's rampage. I used to think that I would be blown away by the wind when I was a child-though now I know that isn't true, it's still interesting to think about in a rhetorical sense. A person sometimes says they are 'blown away' by another, either in a good or bad way. 'She blows me away with her complicated theories and logic', 'He blew me away with his dashing looks', or...'they blew us away with their loud screams as we stepped onto that glittering stage'.

 I am right now thinking about how I have been blown away throughout my life. Swept up is another good word to describe my reaction to meeting some people.  I know that when I met one girl, my first reaction wasn't very 'blown away' or 'swept up'. But I found as the quiet girl opened up that her inner world was quite the type to blow away a person like me. I had not imagined that there was so much to her and am still learning!

At any rate, I'm also a little bored! But when am I not? lol
I have drawn a few things recently but I don't have pictures on my mini (who STILL needs a name, hahahah!).

Well...will try to post again soon. :)

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! I must say, my Valentine's Day is going quite well this year. Or should I call it Valentine's weekend? ahahaha. I feel like I'm celebrating Valentine's for three days instead of one! On Valentine's itself I plan to do some awesome baking and sweet-making, and then, in one week we are going to my Grandparent's house for a 'real' Valentine's party! Plus, there's some cool stuff going on tonight, too. =3
 Right now, I am contemplating the meaning of Valentine's Day. Truthfully, the last time I was told the story was about four or five years ago, and I don't remember the details. As far as I know, St. Valentine was a really loving person so they made a celebration day for him which thru commercialism evolved into this huge pink, red, and white thing.
 I can tell you, however, the way the Japanese celebrate Valentine's Day. Unlike here in America and in Europe, where the men give the women gifts on Valentine's, in Japan the women give the men chocolates. Funny, eh? Well, truth is that it's all a big marketing strategy to sell a lot of chocolate! The women/girls are expected to give candy to their fathers, brothers and coworkers. Classmates and others I'm not sure about. So along with your significant other, girls, you'd be giving chocolate to lots of other males! Talk about blowing the budget, especially if your chocolates are expensive European ones. Though, if you want to express your love to that someone who is more special than all the others, you make your chocolate gift. This is viewed as much more endearing because you spent time and effort on them.
 So where do all the customs and manners of Japan come in? White Day! March 14th, one month after Valentine's, is when males are expected to return the gifts of chocolate given, and typically their return gifts are expected to be much more expensive. (Googled this)-Traditionally, gifts are white chocolate, cookies, jewellery and marshmallows.  The phrase sanbai gaeshi is typically refered to, since it means thrice more. This indicates that a White Day present should be either twice or three times as much as a Valentine's chocolate was.  In South Korea, this day is also celebrated, with the men giving candy instead of chocolate.-

Cool, eh? Personally, I like the way WE celebrate Valentine's Day...there's only ONE day for giving and getting, and we don't have to worry about status and who will be put out if we don't get them something!

So, I hope you enjoy your Valentine's Day and that information above. I'm gonna try to make fudge sometime later-Let's hope it works out- but don't worry, I don't have any Valentines in mind.;) Just the deadline of my Grandparent's party! hahaha

Just stop...

Have you ever stared at something that makes you upset to the core and said, passionately...

Just stop.

The truth of the matter is that we cannot stop things ourselves sometimes. The hopeful solution to this problem is, that God is in control. We don't need to worry ourselves out of our minds at night, thinking about those things we can't stop. 

Recently, very very very special people in my life have been undergoing 'attacks' that are very disturbing to me. Internal, external, either way, these things are having a profound effect on the ones I love. I find myself saying 'Just stop!' quite often. 
Aside from feeling totally helpless and unable to do anything, I also feel hurt. These people are not only friends to me. They are brothers and sisters in Christ. You hurt them, and you're indirectly

A man of too many friends comes to ruin, 
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. -Proverbs 18:24

I don't hate some of the people that are mistreating my friends; some of them are also my brothers and sisters in Christ. But that doesn't change the fact that they're still hurting them. 

As I said earlier, thankfully, I have Christ to turn to. No matter what happens to people I love; whether they go rouge and stop talking to me, or are leaning on me for support (which I don't mind in the slightest) I can still pour it all out before Him and He does comfort me. I remember being totally amazed when one time I was very aggravated/hurt over the way someone was acting. I prayed that I would have peace over this particular person, and believe it or not, I didn't stay up till 2 the next morning worrying over it (a typical thing with me).

So, I guess through all my rambling I'm trying to say that nothing can happen that will wound you so much that Christ can't fix it. He's always there when you need someone to lean on, when it feels like the world is crashing down on you. This is a valuable lesson that I'm still learning.

In peace I will both lie down and sleep, 
For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety. -Psalm 4:8

Besides all that, I'm sick with a cold, yet happy. One of my best friends is having a birthday. I'm so thankful he and his family moved here-they've been such a blessing. Knowing them for 8 years is a wonder to me. Normally, it seems that people come and go, never staying. But they have not. Moreover, I've found true friends in them; friends I would trust with anything if need be. They're just really awesome. ^.^
