Blessed, each and every day!
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)
In two weeks, I am turning 13. I believe this will be my last birthday party with school friends so I am planning a party that includes a “nerf gun war” theme. It will be at my house on the day of my birthday. The reason I chose a nerf party is because I do not know anyone who’s had one plus it might be fun for my last official birthday party.
As well, I made a new friend this week who lives up the road from me. He’s come down and played hockey two times and we played war once. While we played war, we had some fun planning my birthday party as well. He is nice and I really hope that he’s on my team next hockey season if I play A.
This week I joined a hockey team. The cost is 45 dollars to play and $25 for a team shirt. I hope that my team will do well because there will be a lot of good competition and we will need to do our best — if we are to win. On this team are some of my best friends.
As I thought about the highlights just this week, I began to realize just how blessed I am. Then I thought about how Jesus told us to “take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.” Why? Because “is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin.” (Matthew 7:25-28)
Yes, this week has been awesome but not just because good things happened but also because the Lord has promised to take good care of me, even if the week wasn’t so great!
