I woke up later today and felt lame! lol Last thing I remember is falling asleep on the couch with my daddy and then waking up in my bed (the top bunk) with my clothes on. Apparently I was sleep walking and talking about finding a cup and something about a football game. :)

This morning's devotions was really good. Read Job 38:1-11 if you get the chance. My favorite verse as I watched the waves was the eleventh.

Today I started a new book. It's called "The Pursuit of God" by A.W. Tozer. A good reformer book. I've not read a ton, but what I have read, I love! I think I'm going to really enjoy this book!

Picture time! (The pictures taken today will be here after I get back)

After pictures, we went out into the town part of the island for lunch. It was a neat little seafoood place called Barnicle BIlls. It was tasty!

After yesterday's journaling, we all went out into the ocean and about half of us got stung like 20 times by jellyfish. Kaitlyn and Caleb got it the worst. So, today while we boogie boarded, they were like all playing around with us. Like tossing us to one another, because it seemed like you'd feel it in one area, move, and there was another one! We perservered because the waves are just way too fun to let jellyfish stop us.

Kayleigh and Kaitlin found 17 jellyfish and we found 5 more! Wowzers.

While we were seashell hunting, I reached down to grab this very large "shell" that knocked into me in the water. I grabbed the top of a jellyfish! I'm sure I scared the fire out of the poor guy!

I am comitted to, the second I get home, putting pictures up on here.

Read Isiah 40:28-31. It's a good reminder of how mighty God is.

Well goodnight! I'm getting tired, and looking forward to another good day tomorrow! I believe we're going fishing :)

    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
