Hey guys!

I know I haven't posted in a LONG TIME. So I'd do a quick post to say thank God for what He has done.

You know that Anna moved this summer. Well, she's coming over for a third sleepover at my house since she moved. I just want to thank for being so good and keeping Anna and I together, even though we're apart. It's so great to have her here.

Also, I want to thank Anna and her dad for driving more than two hours away from their house to make it to my birthday. I am so glad she came to my birthday party and it wouldn't have been possible without her family.

In Christ,
Sarah

Moving

Hi everybody!!

Sorry that I haven't posted on here for a while. When you meet somebody new, they don't just become your best friend right away. At some point you might ask, "Do you want to become best friends?" They might say yes, but that's usually not the way it works. You get to know the person and maybe in a year or two you realize that you've become best friends. Sarah and I have been "bonding" for awhile and I have found that she's really nice and that she has an extraordinary gift of writing. The problem now is that I will soon be moving about two hours away from where I currently live. It's going to be hard, but we are going to keep seeing each other. It won't be as often, though. We can talk on the phone, email each other, text, send letters, and we can do face time. It's going to be difficult, but we are going to still see each other once in a while and we will still be in regular contact. It's not like I'm moving to another country! I think that it IS still possible to stay best friends even when you're miles apart.

This is a song about growing up. It reminds me how my friend who going to move soon.

Remember, Jesus is the ONLY friend that will never leave you. He will ALWAYS come through for you. Even when you feel like your friends don't care about you, even when they don't come through for you, even if they really hurt your feeling, He is still there. Sometimes.... when that happens.... He's trying to prove to you that HE is the best friend you could ever have and HE deserves your desires, time, and love. Remember, when it feels like no one's there, God will be there. Talk to Him. He will listen.

Just some thoughts I'd thought I'd share with you....
HE WILL BE WITH YOU WHEVER YOU GO!
In Christ,
Sarah

Upward Game

Today was my second Upward basketball game. (Anna's third) It was the hardest game so far. I was guarding a girl that was a little taller than me. It was the same girl Anna mentioned on her blog. Thankfully, it didn't feel like a wrestling match to me. She was really nice, and we talked a lot. Even though we lost, we still put up a good fight. On the last quarter, we down almost 20 points, but at the end of the game we were only down 4! Anna has a dream that she scored 4 times, and in the game, not only did she score for the first time, but she scored 3 times! I was SO proud of her.

The funny thing was at the end of every quarter, I would think: There is no way I am going to go back in. But I ended up playing the whole game! Even though my stomach hurt really bad and I pulled a muscle a once I kept going. My little sister, Ellie, (She's on our team), had a really had a good game too, even though she feel and got four rug burns. Ouch. I think it was a great game for all of us and I thank God for this opportunity. He is showing me how to endure, how to have good sportsmanship, and how to be me a team player. BTW, I get to see my best friend twice a week!
In Christ,
Sarah

Managing Anger

Hey, guys! It's been a LONG while since I've posted so I thought I'd post before I left for my grandpa's funeral. Anna and I had basketball practice tonight and we had our first game Saturday. It was fun. I must say, Anna was very good for her first time! It was seriously tiring, but super fun! In case you don't know, Anna and I do Upward together, a Christian organized basketball program. Our verse today was very good. I can't remember all of it, but this is what I can remember: "Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry." This is something you have to apply daily in your friendship or any relationship. We also brought up the old saying: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. This is not true. In fact, broken bones heal better than a troubling memory. When you break your leg, for instance, it'll heal in maybe a month at the most, but words are damaging and hurtful. Once they're there, you can't take them back. They're in and you can't get them out. It's a lasting, terrible memory that can permanently damage your relationship with your friend or family member.

So, remember, whenever you're about to drill your friend about something (even if they totally deserve it), stop, and think: What would Jesus do? It's better to keep your mouth shut than say something you'll regret.
In Christ,
Sarah

Sweet Jesus

This song talks about how your friendship with Jesus is the best, most important friendship you could ever have. I hope it will help you realize that Jesus is the best friend you could ever have.

My #1 Fan

I went skating with Anna last Saturday. I had the best time! Anna and I love skating so much! It was great that we could do it together. Though Anna and I agree on mostly everything, we have a few differences. One of them is how I love 'We are Never Ever Getting Back Together' and Anna doesn't like it that much. I love it when she talks [in the song] and Anna doesn't. Another difference we have is that she likes the song, 'Thriller' by Micheal Jackson. I seriously wonder what anyone saw in that guy, but through our differences, we still make the best of friends. Even though we don't agree on everything, we still make the perfect match.

I will never sing like Anna, (BTW, she's is an amazing singer) and she doesn't like writing as much as I do, but we still encourage each other. I'm Anna's #1 fan when it comes to singing and she is my #1 fan when it comes to writing. Your friend might be better at you something, way better. What should you do then? You should support your friend through it all. When they win something, cheer for them. Be their biggest fan. To show you're a true friend and prove that you're a true friend, you need to support your friend. When they fail, never, ever criticize them. Instead, bring up a Bible verse or complement them. Tell them they did their best and you're proud of them. Your friend will feel better knowing that you care. Support them no matter what happens, no matter what the cost.

If it's obvious that you're better than your friend at something, never rub it in their face. Never be proud. If you make brag and make a mistake, it is most likely that your friend could be very hurt.  Talk to them and apologize. Ask them how you hurt them. Give a sincere apologize, admit that you were wrong, and ask for forgiveness. Your friend should respect you more if you give a sincere apology. When it seems that you're friend is jealous for no reason, don't criticize them. Instead, loving and kind to them no matter how hostile they seem. In that situation, ask yourself: What would Jesus do?

I hope this advice helps you with your friend. Remember: "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things," 1st Corinthians 13:4-7.
