well school has officialy started. its so weird! it still hasnt hit me that summer is really over....crazy.
anyways. spirtually, ive been going through a lot lately. its nothing that i can actually pin-point like "so, Lord that's what I'm doing wrong" or "okay that's what I need to do God". ITs just been these ongoing feelings that have really tied me down. Maybe it's this whole "starting a new year of school thing" ....or maybe i am extremely SAD that summer has come to an end...it's like I've become attached to this season of my life and I don't want to start another chapter. I've grown so much this summer, I've seen God work in beautiful ways, I've seen God work in ME! a worthless sinner, I've met people and established relationships that I will cherish forever, and I've learned so much about myself and the plan God has for me. So maybe I JUST answered my own question. Maybe this isnt a spiritual battle (although it very well could be) but its just a part of me that doesnt want to let go of summer and that place of "comfort" that I've grown so attached to during that season.
WOW! Jesus is funny.. I log on to Phusebox think Im writing a blog asking for others opinion/advice on what I've been going through and I think He just answered my question for me. God is AWEsOME! please keep praying ....
ALoha in our Lord Jesus Christ,

LORD, how can I forget?
Sometimes, we get numb...... As Christians, we often hear about the crucifixion; how Jesus died on the cross. But have we forgotten the pain? Has it become merely a story? I'm not about to write a long, descriptive blog re-painting the picture of what happened that day. YOU know what Christ endured on Calvary. But incase you have forgotten...this isn't just a story. This is our Jesus, my Jesus. And I will not continue to snicker and spit on Him through the way I am living my life. I do not want to become that person in the crowd who mocked Jesus as He hung on that cross. I want to BEHAVE. I want to know that I was WORTH his sacrifice! Don't you? Let's live like we remember....Lord, forgive for us for forgetting and becoming numb to your sacrifice.
Aloha In Christ,

It's funny how summer has come and is going so quickly but the memories made seem to have a lasting impact on you for...forever!
This summer God has really revealed Himself and I am continually at awe with the fact that He still uses sinners like me to accomplish His mighty work. For the first time, I went as a counselor to children's camp in Ke'anae, Maui.
I fell in love with these kids.
In my small group alone, two children accepted the Lord and one boy recommited his life to Christ.
God laid one boy on my heart and I prayed for his salvation specifically that morning. To see him that night, one of the "tough" boys in the group, with tears streaming down his face as I shared the love of Christ was intense and is something I will remember for the rest of my life. "I want Jesus in my heart," the boy said with tears."
13People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." 16And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.

my brother willy....
he got dem skills
I miss him a lot and I always try to keep him in my prayers. As my brother, it hurts to see him, just lost ...not having the hope and direction of our Lord and Savior. I wonder if he ever did read the Bible and my Purpose Driven Life book that I gave to him. He says that life is going good...but why settle for just good when you can find true happiness in Christ Jesus. Its hard to see him struggling, trying to make a living and find success on his own. Sooner or later he's gonna get tired and fall, if he hasnt already. And maybe in letting go, he will let God. But I just wish that he didnt have to experience that pain and heartache before he sees the hand of God reaching out to carry him ......... But if that's what it takes...
E ko makou Makua i loko 'o ka lani,
I can only pray that one day he will not only be my brother in blood, but my brother in Christ.
Ka inoa 'o ka Makua
A me ke keiki
A me ka 'uhane hemolele

I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.

In actuality, she's a criminal---posing as a weather woman in Samoa...just to earn extra moola. check out her one of her pics of her POSING to be a weather woman.....
And here's the BIG SECRET formula for her extremely thin bod.
guess what...she's an anorexic. that's right, but you didn't hear it from me. that's right....it's definately NOT the working out, because i've been working out for the past gazillion months..and look at me...i don't see any results. i mean. dang.
check out the pic in her numerous paparatzee shots of her and one of her celeb friends---notice the precise placement of her finger on her tongue. (heeeheee-dat's da evil laugh dat i do)
