Healing Our Country

Since I won't be here tomorrow, think of this post as my post for tomorrow.
Today was the big God & Country Day at church and it was a blast! Anyone who had the opportunity to come and didn't sure missed out! You all surely know that I'm in the choir at church and we did a mini patriotic cantata. During the "Salute to the Armed Forces" I tried to pay attention to Brother Barry (the director) but it was literally impossible. There was so much cheering and clapping and whistling and someone even brought a air-horn!!! And at the end all the balloons dropped and it was amazing! I wish I could have taken some pictures.
After all the excitement, we sang the last song.. and if anything could touch me, it was that song. Here are some of the words.

"Turn the Tide"
Though the waves of immorality may beat upon the shore, and it seems that all ungodliness is knocking at our door. We must never give up hope; we must not let them win the war. We must plead with him who has the power to cleanse and to restore. Turn the tide, Lord, turn the tide! Open wide the flood gates of your power. Stem the flood of wickedness. Restore, revive, and bless. Turn the tide.           
        (From "This Is My America" by Bible Truth Music)

It makes me think how this country has gone downhill so fast. I heard that on the news they beeped out "One nation under God" in the "Pledge of Allegiance"! How sad can it get? I'd like to ask everyone who's reading this post to pray. Pray for the country. Pray for the president, the congress and all those in the government. Pray for the city mayor, your pastor.

The Bible says in 2 Choronicles 7:14 KJV
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Seeing old friends

On Saturday, the 25th of June (the day I posted last), I went to see the "Toy Box" put on by the Volusia Academy of Ballet. I've seen it every single year ever since I was five. Only this time, I was in the audience and not back stage. I danced under Ms. Nobuko's instruction for 9 years till I quit last year. It was nice seeing all my friends again. Learning about the things that have happened during my absence. One friend is moving to California; another one had a tumor in her head and is recovering well from surgery. I had a lot of fun watching and talking. LOL
L to R: Me, Joyclen, Sarah, Sydney, and Shannon.
Joyclen was the only one who actually performed in this picture. :D Sarah and Shannon switched schools last year and Syd quit. I didn't get a picture with Stephi but I will because I'm spending Independence Day with her.
