Hi!!

Today is my parents anniversary, so right now I'm babysitting my brothers and sisters.

I hope everyone had a gr8 Christmas... I did! I got a Jamie Grace CD, snow globe, microphone (YAY!! As u all know how much I love to sing : D ), and lots of other stuff from family and friends. After eating, my sister and I sang "Hallelujah (Light Has Come)" by Barlow Girl... It was really fun! We found the karaoke for it online, and had that playing in the background.

This Monday we're going to FL. We haven't been there in SOOO long, so we can't w8!

Well, gtg!

{{{Last Night}}}

Hi,

Last night r family went to a candle light service that r friend invited us to at her church.
It was really nice... it was about an hour or a little more long. It had lots of nice music, and afterwards everyone went to the fellowship hall for snacks and things.

Is everyone excited about Christmas as much as I am??!! I'm really excited. I have 1 present left to get, and it's for my dad. I AM SO BEHIND!! I am going to try to get him something TODAY, or if not, I'll probably make him something : )

Before I close, I'll tell u guys about a couple books and a few movies that I've enjoyed this year, and would recommend...

First of all,

'Hello Love' by Chris Tomlin... I would recommend it pretty much only if u play the piano, and if u r an advanced player. Because it's an advanced piano book. BUT it's GREAT!!

Pretty much any Elizabeth George (these are really all books for girls) books. I have "A Young Women After God's Heart- A Teen's Guide to Friends, Faith, Family and the Future."
It's GREAT, and I would highly recommend it to any teen girl!!



Now, I'll talk about movies....

1."Courageous" is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I would say it's for the whole family pretty much, but there might be some sequences that are pretty dramatic or violent. But our whole family watched it at the theatre and it was great.

2. "Soul Surfer" I LOVE THIS MOVIE is pretty much all I can say!! It is the true story about Bethany Hamilton who lost her arm in a shark attack when she was 13 years old. It's a great movie about her life before and after the shark attack. I would definitely recommend it!

3. "Fireproof" This is a great movie made by the same ppl that did "Courageous"... It's not really a family movie (not that it wouldn't be one that a whole family could watch), but it's about marriage and divorce. But I would still recommend it if you haven't seen it.


Well, I've gotta go now!! Hope u enjoyed : )

Hi,

I am soooooooo excited for Christmas!! We are going to go to our church for a worship service in the morning (with just music), and then we're gonna come home and do all the Christmas normals: open gifts, have a Christmas lunch/dinner, etc,. HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME. PERIOD. haha. : )

We are having a break from school right now, which is great!! We're waiting for new curriculum to come in, but I'm hoping it will get delayed!! jk, haha.

I'm REALLY sorry that this is so short, BUT life ALWAYS I have to go!! I will try to post tomorrow, maybe with some pix.

Toby Mac - Christmas This Year(Feat. Leigh Nash)

Hi everyone!! (trying not to say "Hey Guys" so much!!)

Here's a really fun (and Christian, of course!!) song by tobyMac feat. Leigh Nash. It's called Christmas this Year. It plays on our favorite radio station 89.9 and 90.5 Positive Hits PER. Hope u all enjoy! ~

{{{Church}}}

Hey Guys!!


We just came back from church (Salem Baptist Church)... it was GREAT! There was a music group that sang some songs...


Here's just one of them... it was really pretty!! Our family really enjoyed it!! I will try to post more later (try to!) but gotta go!!


... ok! I am back! The church has 247 people on a normal Sunday, but today it was only about 200 because some people were gone for Christmas. The sermon was really great... I'm hoping they'll add it as a podcast on their website.
The pastor was reading from Romans, Psalms and 2 Samuel. What the whole sermon was really talking about was forgiveness and love. How God saves US while we are yet sinners. It was great.

Also, like I said before, the music was really great too. They had two different groups of singers. The first ones were two young men with an acoustic guitar and drum set, and the second one was one man singing and an electric guitar, piano and drumset. All the music was great. I would post some more songs, but I'm not sure what they were all called : ?

I'll close with my favorite bible verse from 1 Chronicles 28:20:

David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.

{{{Singers}}}

Hey Guys!!

I just wanted to talk about a singer that I REALLY enjoy!!

First of all...

Lindsay McCaul



She's a new singer, who's been touring with Casting Crowns, The Afters and Sanctus Real in the Come to the Well tour. What is really special is that my (our) family grew up with her and her family, so we are very close to them. We are SO excited of how far she has come with her music.
Her first album is coming out January of 2012. I can't wait to get it! I already purchased a WOW Next and Next album with new arstists on it. It has her song "Come Rest" featured on it.
My favorite songs of her's would have to be "You Never Change" and "Say My Name". "Come Rest" comes right after those. You can purchase 4 of her songs on iTunes.
Also you can find her on Twitter (@LindsayMcCaul) Facebook (LindsayMccaulMusic) Myspace (lindsaymccaul) and on her official website LindsayMcCaul.com.
I'll try to write another post soon, on another singer. But for now...

{{{Christmas Fun!!}}}

Hey Guys!!
Sorry I've gotten so far behind again... we've been really busy ( I know, the same excuse every time! LOLOL)

This Saturday I have a Christmas piano recital... I have been taking lessons for almost 4 years now... I REALLY enjoy it!

My sister Noelle's birthday is this month on the 15th. She wanted to do something really special, so she decided she wanted to go to a Christian concert. We found out that a singer that our family REALLY likes is going to be near us the day before her birthday, so she wanted to go to that. We're so excited!!

Well, sorry it's so short, but I have to go now!!

{{{Christmas Planning}}}

Hi guys!

The cooler weather lately has gotten me more into the Christmas mood...
Tonight we made this December calender... it's so cute!! It is hand-made, and for each day of December we have an envelope with a little card inside that say's something to do that day. Ex,. "eat popcorn balls...tell stories around the fireplace." It doesn't have t be BIG drastic things for the days, the little things are really fun too.

I made an account on Youtube, and I only have one video on there so far. My channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/singing4lifeisabelle, so you can check me out there. Oh, and guess who became one of my FIRST friends on there?! Jamie Grace!! I couldn't believe it. 2 days after I made my account, Jamie Grace added herself as my friend... I thought it was so cool!

Finally, some of the sicknesses in are house are going away, but my dad still has a cold, and I have had a cough.

Some friends and my sister and I are making a Christian pop/contemporary music group... any name ideas??!! We had thought of Revolution, but then found out there is already a Christian group with that name... so right now we're kinda just trying to think of one. I thought of Consumed, like a verse in the bible (don't know the reference!) that say's God is like a consuming fire. I've been trying to think of names that work around that verse.

Also, I am currently working on a song that goes along with a chapter (I think!) in the bible. I've been having trouble remebering the whole chapter by ITSELF, so I thought, "why not just make a song out of it?!" Cuz if u knew how many songs I know by memory...

Well, must go for now... and keep a watch for new videos on my account on Youtube!!

{{{sorry!}}}

Hey Guys!!

I am SOOOOO sorry it's been so long since I have last posted : ( !

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving... I did!! We still have a ton of leftover food... haha! We had a movie night, and I picked out the movie... I chose Fireproof. One of my favorites. (but I don't know why I picked it for Thanksgiving?!)

Right now I am listening to The Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns... it's such a great song : ) It reminds me of the movie Facing the Giants, which is also one of my favorites!

Yesterday the weather was so nice... we went out into town and did a photo shoot for my younger sister, it was really fun!

Well, gotta go! : )

{{{pictures etc,.}}}

Hey!!


Ok, I FINALLY got the pix, and unless you haven't already seen, I addded a profile pic. : )


Today it was SO SO SO SO beautiful outside ( I know, I always say that, but honestly!), and it was perfect weather for being outdoors.


We and some other girls from a bookclub that I'm in went to a historical park for a tour of the mansion that is on the land... it was WONDERFUL!! The tour was great, and the house was even more so. It was all decorated for Christmas (which I LOVED!! lol), BEAUTIFUL!!


After the tour, we went out to lunch at a cafè... it was very fun! Afterwards, we had to go to tend to some friends cats again, then we went home.


Well, must go now!! : ) : )

{{{fRiDaY}}}

Hey guys! : )

Yesterday we were NOT able to get the pix, so today will be the day where we do it! Sorry : )
I haven't really enjoyed the new time change... you wake up late and the day seems to go by so fast!
This morning I was so glad to see the sun shining in thru the window in my room, as of yesterday when it was dark and grey... definitely makes a difference to me!

To close this up, I'll post a verse that I really like : )

{Psalms 47:6-7 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.}

Hey guys!!

I know I've been changing the template of my blog soooo much, but there are sooo many great options, right??!! lol.

I'm going to add a profile pic of myself soon, but right now I hardly have any pix of just me. So today, HOPEFULLY, I'll be able to get a pic of myself to post.

{{{ The Usual Happenings...}}}

Hey Everyone : )

The weather is SO pretty out this morning, even though when I looked out thru the skylight I have in my room, I noticed almost all the leaves are off the trees, and everything now looks grey and dark outside : (
Next month after Christmas we're going to our grandparents house, YAY!! We RARELY get to go to FL (which is where they live), so we're very excited ; - )

We've been having sicknesses in our house for a few weeks... just allergies. I got it for about a week (still kinda have it) and the rest of the family got it too. But we're getting over it, so that's good! : )

I'll try to post pictures VERY soon, but for now I have to go!!
