Lately Mom has been reading to us kids a book on prayer tittled "wrestling prayer" bu Eric and leslie Ludy. We are about half way through it I believe, and it's been good. Eric is a little (ok, a lot) long winded and he takes a while to get to the heart of his point, but it has been pretty good. I would recommend it.
So far it's mostly about how, today, the Christian walk has been watered down a lot, especially in the area of prayer, how we could see so much more happen if we took the time to struggle in prayer with God. How prayer really is a struggle against the powers of darkness. How we should spend so much time praying and striving, calling on God for things to happen. How we need to pray with complete faith and trust in God. How God's wisdome is not our Wisdom. How we can walk with King David's "Swagger," That we are God's chosen and we can act like it, no power of darkness can stand if we struggle in prayer instead of hust a humdrum 'religous' sounding prayer."
It also talks about how God is affectionate. He gave Jacob a nickname, "Israiel." and David, "a man after God's own heart." That we to can have "nicknames." If we take the time.
It's been interesting. I didn't care for it at first. but I think it's interesting now.
I just think it's funny. I think mom started reading it to us because she wanted to "teach us to pray," because when we pray all together some of us ssay some rather simple prayers and stuff. I think it's funny because I do that, but it's because I don't particularly like praying in front of people. even if it's my own family. I do quite a bit of hard praying when i'm on my own.

My brother was home last night, I stayed up to talk to him.
I admit to bing jealous, he hasn't spent a lot of time at home and has been spending a lot of time with his girlfriend. I didn't think though that I could be as upset as I was.
i'm not even making any sense to me so i'm giving up this post now.

last night dad and I were home together. the rest of the family was scattered to the wind.
so what did we do?
we rented Act of Valor.
great movie.
very sad.
 in keeping with tradition in how I rate movies. "It's not a little kid movie." in fact, it's Rated R.
but it was awesome.
it's about seal team 7.
and it's sad.
especially when the guy jumps on the bomb to save everyone else. And when the other guy get's shot.
watch. it.
 unless you're under probably 14, or you're faint of heart.
then don't.
because the girl gets tortured and people get shot all over the place and it's bloody and stuff.
so if you don't mind that kind of stuff then watch it.
and make sure you dn't swear at the TV, because you'll hear a lot of it.

can't remember if I posted earlier or not. :P
Tonight mom is going to start reading us the Felloship of the Rings, again. We love that series and we're gearing up for the hobbit to come out.
Tonight us girls went and picked up a futon for the spare room bed. ended up going to DQ. that was fun.
My dad finished my hopechest and brought it down to my room. since I don't really have a place to put it it is now under my bed.
It's going to be hard to make my bed.
oh, also trying to connect with one of my friends. hopefully on saturday.
Mom got a new cellphone. it's really cool. I think I know more about it than she does.
