My life is not my own, for I belong to Christ.
It is because of God's grace and for His glory that I "live and move and have my being."
I am currently back in Indiana, studying English Education at Purdue University, far from the home I've come to know and love in Victoria, Australia
My family means the world to me.
Living in America and loving in Australia, I am blessed indeed.

We were talking about Thomas Jefferson in American Republic today, and I didn't know, until today, that Jefferson made his own version of the Bible. He literally "cut and pasted" it. He cut out the parts he didn't like or believe, and kept the rest. A in my class, Becky, made a very good point about that. She said "Didn't he basically send himself to Hell by doing that? It says in Revelation that whoever takes away from the Bible, God shall take his name away from the Book of Life. So, she was basically right. You can't just believe parts of the BIble and still be a Christain!

I love this quote:
"I wish I could be a little forever, cuz skinned knees heal faster than a broken heart."
I don't know why I felt like sharing that today, but that's okay. :)

Well, in case this comes up as 3 in the morning again, it is only 6:55 am. I am sooo tired! I stayed up till like 10:00 last night reading. I know that's not late for most people, but on a school night, when you have to get up at 6:00 am, it is late!

You should be (or already are) A ! You're
perky, preppy, and very healthily active. You
probably enjoy the small things in life, walks
on the beach, The Beatles, good wine, and
pretty polished rocks. Keep up the healthy
lifestyle and you should have no trouble at all
finding a husband.

I am at my aunt and uncles house right now. They live in Kansas. We left for Kansas on Wednesday after school and got to the Manns(some friends we stayed with) at midnight. So, on Saturday we came here. We are leaving for Indy in like 20 mins. Oh joy! I am sooo excited about an 8 hour trip in our minivan with my brothers and sisters all squished together! Well, I survived the way here. And we only stopped once! Well, I better go make sure I didn't leave anything!

This kid in my class, Josh Kincheloe, did this really funny thing yesterday! He usually wears his pants really low, and yesterday, he tucked in his shirt and pulled up his pants really high and tightened his belt. It was soooo funny. He was like, "Charity, would you still be my friend if I wore my pants like this?" and I was like, "Uhh...no." Anyways, I thought it was pretty funny, and so did everyone else! I guess you kind of had to be there.

Bright little me forgot a whole paragraph in my essay! But, smart little me remembered to save it when I typed it before, so I just had to add it and print it again. See, as Allen said earlier, I am made up of several different person(alities) :) That's me. But, I have an excuse, I am your average bumd-blonde.

8. Ummm...I collect beanie baby's.
9. Any kind of scented candles ( I collect those too)
