Oh, What a Wonderful Day!

Oh what a day! It was truly a gift!
My Human Biology class went on a field trip to see Body Worlds at the Science Museum. Although it was my second time seeing it (I went 6 years ago!) I was still amazed at how cool our bodies can really be, ya know? At times it was gross to look at parts but once you get past it you realize God made a miracle and does every time a new human is born. My favorite part, now and then, is the arteries, veins, and capillaries outlines. How do they strip the body down to microscopic tubes that are extremely fragile and still manage to keep their shape?! Freaking amazing.
Not to mention my Father was on the trip with me and 6 years ago being the science-y, nerdy kid I am he took me for fun. So it was like a reunion.
OH! And, there was this handsome young lad of whom I don't know that kept looking over at me and smiling, I was twitterpated, immediately and dedicated the rest of my day to smiling whenever he came across me (or I to him) probably the latter of the two.. Sadly though, it could have been my imagination that he was smiling at me, for I am just a lowly blonde haired, blue eyed girl. I never got the nerve to get his number... (fun fact: he was from Delano) I will be searching handsome boy, (;

After that trip was over and I said goodbye to my prince (extreme exaggeration) my father finally took me to take my permit test.. And the verdict is....

I PASSED! With 2 wrong out of 40, yay me! (London Tipton, anybody? No? okay.)
To celebrate he took me to Cherry Berry for the first time. Encase you don't know, it's a self serve, frozen yogurt place with so many kinds of yogurt and toppings to choose from it's almost overwhelming. Silly, boring old me decided just to get non-fat birthday cake with a few bobas, (yet to figure out what they are) The total ounce count was 10, coming to $5.33. EXPENSIVE, honestly 10 oz's is nothing in terms of frozen yogurt.

It was delicious and clean, for the most part! The downside is, I am now having major stomach problems and I feel sick.. ICK. For the cost of this stuff, I better hold it down.
The rest of my night's timeline is;  homework, read, bike ride?, and Awkward. at 9 o'clock. If you haven't watched it and you're a teen girl (or boy) I totally suggest it for a try. It's pretty funny, here's the link to their page on MTV.com

And to close today's blog I have this little quote:




Wonderful little thing isn't it? I thought the Lord was showing His love for me today, and it didn't go unnoticed or unappreciated.

Update:

Okay, you know how I said I was going to be blogging about eating "clean"? Well I'll sprinkle those thoughts in. I have found I just want to blog about me, no limits to a single subject.

My main focus: GOD

That is all.

Day of Rest(?)

Good Afternoon to anyone who has decided to read my silly and boring blog but hey, I've always wanted one so here I stay. (I did not mean to rhyme, it just happened!)
Today began with my Sunday ritual of waking up to go and praise my Lord, Jesus Christ. Our pastor began a new series called Project Rescue: Hydrate. It was wonderful! The Hydrate part came in to play when 9 people (as far as I know) were baptized  A few did not plan it but God put it in their heart to do it! Tears were shed to say the least! God is good isn't He? Anyways, the point of this week was:

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[c]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d]
28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[e]and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”


And Michael's messages from this was:
Life Happens
Get off your donkey! (modern translation: Get off your high horse)
Everyone Matters
Go and do likewise

Onward with my day...

My father and I went to a little cafe in town and I had a Egg White Garden Vegetable Omelet. (CLEAN) It was decent and he ordered what they called The Kitchen Sink, so like everything on the menu (hehe). The grand total was not worth the wait or the quality to say the least but it got the job done


Fast forward some more..I finished my application to Caribou Coffee, cross my fingers I get the job! And now, I'm baking cookies as pay to my neighbor who put in a furnace for us in the Winter. It's the least I could do.


I didn't get to the things I needed to do but I feel like I have accomplished a lot for what God says is our day of rest.


I hope your day went just as well if even better than mine :)


With Love, Emily

Day One:

So I guess this is my first post, a new journey, something I have always wanted to do.
First off, I'm a sixteen year old girl, and yes that means I am young enough to be "dumb" but I feel wise enough to say intelligent things and not get sneered at. My blog is dedicated to my journey of life and such including eating "clean". Now you say why do I have interest in this? Well I'll start off now by telling you that I am a recovered eating disorder patient who has discovered new life with God and I now have a passion for food! Ironic? I think so too. So that's it.

Day One.

With Love, Emily
