This Saturday

I went thrifting today. It was a nice day spent at thrift stores and yard sales.

Though I can’t remember all the clothes I bought today, I know I got this cute white skirt to wear with leggings. I tried on a lot of stuff and it didn’t fit, but I know that it means God has better garments for me in His Storage. 🙂 I saw this cute denim skirt. I put it on in the dressing room to see how it fits. It appeared very beautiful and (more importantly) modest at first. But keep in mind that if something is too good to be true, it probably is. What may be proof for this is that the skirt had a big slit in the back that would show the world my panties, oh, and it was dry clean only. Bummer. Remember, Neko, God will give you better as you are His child.

I had went to this big yard sale in this retirement community, as well as the thrift store nearby. I made off well (legally of course—don’t misunderstand me and think I stole something—I didn’t!) I got some makeup (purple eyeliner and some eyeshadow), some gifts for my family, and some free stuff too—one woman gave me a free perfume sample and another woman, a friend of my grandmother, gave me a calendar with Psalms on it.

If I could pick out the highlight of my shopping trip, I’d say it was the books God gave me. There was this deal on books—one bag for $3. I picked five books (for they only had five books I was interested in) and let the cashier ring it up. Because it would be cheaper to just pay for each book individually, they let me do that instead. It turned out to be 25 cents per book, which led to a total of $1.25 for the books plus tax and the price of some mini-lotions I bought.

I really like the books I bought. One of them is a paperback King James Bible with a Bible dictionary in the back. I also got some true story books and a guide to taking good pictures (hope that even though it’s by Kodak the information will be relevant and they won’t be trying to sell me anything.) Last, I purchased a book on improving your prayer life.

Let me tell you about this book on prayer so far. I’ve gotten through about one and a half chapters, I believe. It’s written to teenagers like me with a story at the beginning of each chapter that is related to the chapter’s main idea. I don’t necessarily agree with all it’s ideas portrayed, but it did get me thinking and convicted about my mistakes in my relationship with God!

To wrap this up, I enjoyed my day thrifting. I’m very thankful to Jesus for all the items He got me today. I hope I can use them to serve others (and since at most of the stores if not all of them the money goes to charity, I may have served others just buying them. Not to brag though—I do NOT like to brag.) Did you have a good Saturday? A lousy day? An okay day? Tell me about it in the comments! God bless.

Update

First off, don’t expect these short stories every day. It’s not like I always have the time to write them, with school and all.
Second, my apologies that my ‘Hero’ story was kind of dark. That’s why I’m not sending it in to my language arts teacher and may not even give her the link to my blog for that reason alone.
Third, I just wrote a new, better, more God-glorifying story. It’s called “The Joy of Teaching.” I’ll have it set to be uploaded tomorrow. Feel free to speculate on it’s contents in the comments box.
Fourth, here’s some Scripture inspiration for tonight. “The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.” (Psalm 37:29 KJV)
Last of all, good night. You know Jesus loves you guys, and I love you guys too. ❤
P. S. Why not click the banner I have at the side and fill the cup for some hungry kids? Or just play some Freerice at Freerice.com. Whatever's convenient for you. God bless.

Life

I wish Grooveshark would work on my mobile phone. Oh well, if the Lord wills, it will someday.
I know I haven’t been on in forever. That’s sad. I wish I could just reblog stuff like on Tumblr, but then again, I’m hardly on that.
Been going through my Facebook activity. After all this (and still more to do!) Timelines are SOOOOO not cute anymore. >_<
Strange. I thought Facebook fulfilled a Scripture, but I'm not finding it. 😦
Anyway, I got a Bebo account. Yeah, Bebo.com. I highly recommend it on your computer—mobile version (website on mobile) is useless (without friends at least). But Bebo has great games (not in games section, but in the apps), making it a great social network even without friends! (which is good because I don't think any of my friends are there) Plus, I love the privacy there. I can change my display name to like, a fake name, like 'Amanda Whatchamacallit'. (That's my actual name on Bebo :D)
Anyway I imagine God needs to be talked about to, a much as I sure can talk. Here's a Scripture:

Genesis 8:21 KJV
And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Right now it's almost Christmas. We have the tree up in my parents' house, my great-grandmother has her Christmas decorations up, and my other grandma is over, just for a little while. I suppose I need to get out of bed now so that's all. Bye and God bless.

Just letting you know that Jesus loves you.         But really, He laid down His life for you on the cross, so you could live forever. Come to the King. ❤  

Have You Been Busy?

School’s been in. I have to suffer through studying the squares and cubes of numbers up to 20, so I’ve really had to cut back on my play and yes, even blog time. However, this is kinda good. Ya know, there’s only 24 hours in a day. You’ve got a lot of stuff you want to do and not enough time to get it done. So when you’re crunched for time, your priorities really become obvious.

So guys, look at what you spend time doing—I’m talking about your free time, not things you are forced to do, like school. You may be surprised. I hope your priorities revolve around the Lord! ~Neko ❤
