Day 5 and six -    "Only one life, twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last" 
"Turn your eyes apon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of this earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace"

Yesterday...yesterday was Tuesday, day five. After waking up late, again :/, we went to some of the natives of Seagrove's favorite place to eat--The Doughnut Hole. Find in unusual that their favorite place is breakfast? So did I. But then I went and found that it was a really fun experience! I would not say it was my favorite place to eat, but it was fun. (And they don't just have doughnuts, like Kaite and I got granola pancakes). I met a woman there who began to speak to her three year old niece and it was so sweet. She said (talking about something that was automatic),"Look dear, it's magic!" And the little girl said, "MAGIC!" Oh and I forgot to mention the most important part, they were from England! :D I love accents! Love, love, love. So if you're from a different country, or can fake an accent really well...please be my friend!

Following The Doughnut Hole, the plan was to go snorkeling. We accidentally went to the wrong place and decided to just swim in the ocean (although we did see a FEW fish). That was quite fun and in Destin (where we were swimming) there were lots and lots of of boats...pretty great!

Also, while swimming in Destin, we met a man with two bearded dragons. I got to hold one, it was amazing! Apparently there things actually respond to their names. They're like dogs. They play around his house and when they do something they're not supposed to, he call their names and they turn their heads and run over to him. I know, right?

Dinner was take out pizza from Brunos, a very tasty place. :) The couples went on dates, and us single folk just hung out, watched movies, and stayed up late. In fact, I got like four hours of sleep last night, I'm slightly tired!

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life

    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
