I Will Praise You in This Storm

“And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm”

2014 : A Year Come and Gone

Wow, still in shock over the year 2014 being gone so fast! It just hasn’t hit me yet that the year is officially over! I mena, really?! Today dosen’t feel any different than yesterday, but today is “January 1st, 2015″ and yesterday was ” December 31st, 2014″.

My life has changed considerablly in the past year. And on top of all these feelings, I still can’t believe that I will be turing 16 this year! I mean who would  have thought?! Like seriously, what happened to that little, big cheeked, chatter box, adorable little girl I used to be?! She’s grown up so fast! Pretty soon that little, adorable, chatter box, girl will be driving, and getting her first job, finishing high school, and going to college. And now she is that “sweet little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect All-American Girl!” 🙂 Okay, maybe I won’t go that far, but you catch my drift 😛

I made a rough list of “firsts” that came this year (2014) and I think I will go ahead and type it out here.

  • Got my ears pierced
  • Started painting my nails (Don’t laugh, yes, it took that long to “wear down” my Dad)
  • Became addicted to country music
  • Texted for at least 25 hours (accumilitive, rough estimate)
  • Got my first pair of Hollister jeans (!)
  • Went tubing for the first time
  • Played my first season of volleyball, and reignited my addiction or aka Volleyball fever
  • Started my blog ?(finally !)
  • Made a few new friends
  • Turned 15 (Okay now that one, is only a one time thing. Love it while it’s here LOL 😛 )
  • Became a better singer and photographer
  • Learned how to play the piano
  • Went to Legoland
  • Went to my first square dance
  • Made a B I Algebra (Can’t say I’m thrilled about that, but whatever)
  • Went to my first High school football game

I have a few more things I could add to that list, but I just can’t think of them now, so I will leave y’all with this:

Please give it up for Maddie and Tae, whose song, “Girl in a Country Song” was thie first girl duet Country song to ever hit the charts period, and it actually made #1 on the charts for a whole week! I present to you, my new favorite song 😛
