Funny how you can gain so much inspiration from a novel.
I hate it.
Learning that my parents read my blog, I decided to give them their own special shout out! Hello Mom and Dad!
Driving home from church is always boring for me cuz it takes me at least 45 minutes. I usually try to make the time fly by either listening to music or calling people.
My family is not so typical.
While most families spend their 4th of July in the backyard barbecuing hamburgers and hot dogs, we choose to barbeque fish. Keep in mind, we are Egyptian, so we are unable to eat fish without pita bread.
"Uhoh...we don't have pita bread??"
"Can you go get some from the 99 Cent Store?"
Here we go, a not so typical day has assigned me a not so typical adventure. Chasing pita bread. I drive over to the 99 Cent Store only to find they have every kind of bread ON THE PLANET except for pita bread. I call my mom and she tells me to go to ValueMart. Yay for ghetto grocery stores!
Scared that Becca would randomly decide to delete her myspace and I would lose her beautiful poem forever, I decided I would post it here. All credit goes to her of course.
whether acknowledged or not
they seem to have a hold on you
you begin to build this image inside your head
of what could be
or what should be
and you lose your balance
but only for a few moments
until you look to the cross
and see the One who paid it all
and you remember
He is with you
standing right beside you
holding your hand
"I love you, My beautiful child.
Hold on tight, and whatever happens, try not to let go.
When you are scared, just grasp tighter.
I will never let you go."
