As each day passes, I start to notice more and more boys and girls are throwing away their morals to the ways of the world. I was never blind to it before, but lately it's been standing out more than ever. Growing up in the church taught me early on the true value of modesty and purity, but it's as if I was the only one taught. I know I'm not the only one, but does anyone really care anymore? This post is just my thoughts and ideas on these two topics: Purity and Modesty.

Well's its been a relaxing few days. I had a busy weekend with my brother Cody graduating and then we had my brother and sister-in-law over for the weekend. I've had Monday & today to relax. Well,most of today. Our good friends Naomi & Joseph Koch are coming this evening to spend the week with us. You see,we've known their family for many years and about 4 years ago they moved to North Caroline. We went to visit them 2 years ago,but we haven't seen them since. So it'll be a very fun week. We have a ton planned. We're going to go to the mall,have a water-balloon fight,(Its EXTREMELY HOT here in Lincoln,Nebraska!!) go skating, and go downtown on Friday to the "Celebrate Lincoln" festival. There will be free food samples,games and a lot of other cool stuff. So,busy would describe my week pretty good.
Okay... so, I'm not sure if anyone will read this, but if you do, I could REALLY use some prayer. I've been homeschooled since Kintergarden, and next school year I'm going to publice school. I'm SUPER nervous. I've always been into the whole "not dating" idea, but I'm not so sure how my ideas will survive next year... I don't want to be niave, but I don't want to push decent guys away, you know? My only hope is that the Holy Spirit will guide me and give me enough decernment to know when to push people away and when to get as close as my intergrity will allow (nothing more than friendship, I promise). I know that being single is a gift from God, as Barlowgirl has shown, but sometimes I feel like I won't be able to make it. I know that God doesn't put anything in our paths that we cannot deal with, but I can't help but feel that, while all my close friends are being paired up with guys our age, that something is wrong with me- that no one will ever be capable of liking me.
