Let the rain drops fall... it hides the tears

Quote: "whoever said only sunshine bring happiness, has never tried dancing in the rain"

Observation: There is school, then there is life. Don't get the two mixed up. Enjoy living and breathing each day God gives you, and serve Him to the fullest.

Verse: Isaiah 41:10 -"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."

--God bless my friends--

Don't blink, you might miss on out life....

It's short, so make the most of it while you're here. Make the most of every opportunity.

It's funny how things can change. How time flys by. Its funny how when the tears come, it clouds your vision, life goes blurry, and you can't see as clearly. when the world goes dark, who will lead the way?

When everything gets turned upside down. When the world you thought you could trust walks out on you, who will walk in?

When nothing is OK, when everything goes wrong, when sleep won't come. Who is there, Who is left?

In one second everything can be taken away. When life goes shaky, your palms get sweaty, and start to slip and fall, who do you hold on to when nothen' is left to hold?

One word: God.
But, God has a hold of us when we slip, all of us, and he isn't ever gonna let us slip out of his grasp. When the world goes dark, His love will light the way. Things change for a reason, He's has a plan. It may not be what we expect, or even want, but He works all things out for good, and we have to keep our hope in Christ, and trust Him wholeheartedly, because you know what, He knows what he's doing.

But don't go through life with your eyes closed, don't let it slip past. Live your life with Christ shinning through you. And remember He's always got a hold of you, through the good and the bad, and he isn't ever gonna let His children go.
So "draw near to God and He will draw near to you."- James 4:8a

Do you feel like every things slipping in? Is your hope in Christ tonight? If not, quit messen' around and get things straitened out. God is God, and He knows you better then anyone and Loves you more then anyone, and He is ALWAYS there, He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Psalm 125: 1&2 "Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion which cannot be shaken, but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people both now and forevermore."

Quote of the post: "God sometimes takes away the things which are most dearest to our hearts, to show us how much we take for granted"-the Four feathers - this is to true.

Hot and Tired....

But thankful its God day of rest for us. Thank God for Sundays!

Well this weekends average has been somewhere around 37 C- 98.6 F- and with no AC and no pool its been almost unbearable! The intense heat here is crazy! Yesterday Ben, MJ, my mum, dad, and I went to the beach. It was good fun- but the sand was burning- so we stayed in the water most of the time! It cooled me off for a little bit, but at 8 PM it was still 37 (in Melbourne). That's the really bad bit, it doesn't cool way down at night- so its very hard to sleep. Lord willing it will cool off tonight and next week.

God's amazing Ocean

More Beauty

:) (these are just some pictures from a few months ago we took of a beach we were at)

Tonight I am giving my testimony at church ( even though i became a member a couple weeks ago- things got a little hectic and my dad kept forgetting :)) So I better get a move on. But for all you people in America who are getting like 2 (or 14 if you in New York) Feet of now and freezing- Well enjoy it! Seriously, its better then frying ;) Have a snow-ball fight for me, and I'll have a sand-right for yous! :)

Have a blessed Lords day friends.

A Beautiful miracle from God

On Sunday, around 6-8 PM, Thomas James Wilson Hughes was born. The newest addition to our church family

He was born to Carolyn and Raymond Hughes. (they are one beautiful family, huh? :) I think so)

We went to see the new little Hughes family this evening and I'm still pumped from seeing him! (even more pumped then the Colts winning the super bowl this morning - for us. I've had an exciting day! :)) He is a gorgeous baby boy and I know, with the help of our Lord, Caz and Jonah (nick names) will be wonderful parents! And I can't wait to get to know this little guy more and more in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead! He is a little bundle of joy and blessing- for Carolyn and Ray, for Tony and Norma (Carolyn's parents), and all the other family, And for our church and my family! He is a little miracle from God. :)

No more sleepen' in :(

Yes, once again the dreaded school year has started. No more summer break (but its still summer for another 2 months). Its a pity. And Alas, I'm in Algebra..... Can you say "CONFUSED TAMARA!!!", 'cus that's what I am. Actually its only Algebra 1/2 and this week has been supper easy (the first lessons are always easy!), but I'm just waiten' for the dreaded weeks and months ahead.

(for those of you who are wondering, C is not in Saxon maths 87- and I'm not in Algebra 2, we were ganna switch but C freaked out when she saw how easy mine was and I freaked out when i saw how hard hers was. The print was WAY smaller!)

In other news....

It has just been a lazy Friday night. Pizza and a movie, session meeten' with my dad and the elders. James G. is over for a "sleep over" (or whatever little boys call it) for Ben's birthday. They have been playing on the Xbox for 6 or so hours. Then tomorrow we are going rock climbing.

Some modeling shots us girls took before Church last Sunday night.

Maria and I in a tree.

Squinting because of the sun. I have two beautiful sisters don't I. God blessed me. :)
