Bear Mountain State Park

Today, my church youth group went up state to Bear Mt State Park.  The scenery was beautiful and it wasn't too cold.  We went ice skating (I'm not very good) and then took a short walk around the lake up there.  I was reminded of how God could create such a beautiful place for us humans, when I saw all the beauty around me.  My favorite was the sun reflecting off of the lake.  We shouldn't take this world for granted and I hope I never will again.

Isaiah 41:10

        My favorite verse in the bible is Isaiah 41:10, and it was also my baptismal verse.  I remember when my pastor said that verse to me as he gave me the certificate of baptism.  It blessed me so much on that day and it still blesses me to this day.  I think about it everyday and I always know that God is with me and will be with me forever.   Me and my sister aren't considered the "coolest" in school because we don't listen to the music they do, or because we aren't wearing the "in-style" clothes, but then I think to what is waiting is in heaven for me and how God will protect me, and suddenly it doesn't bother me when people make fun of me.  I hope everyone takes this verse with them everyday.  I can touch you, just like it touched me.
