Heaven is For Real


"Heaven is For Real" is an amazing book with an incredible true story!! After reading this book you can't doubt the power of God and how amazing he is. He saved this little boy's life and showed his presence through this little boy's trip to Heaven. This book has proof that Heaven is for real and that the Bible is not just a story, but it is truth. 
I had tears in my eyes and chills during parts of this book. The stories that were told in this book show the reader that there is so much more to life. I highly recommend this book. It is a good read and hard to put down! I read this book in 2 days. Short and easy read! I think it is a book that anyone can enjoy and a great stocking stuffer for anyone who needs a pick me up. This book shows the power of our God and the strong belief of one little boy who showed us that our God is an awesome God.

The True Gentleman

The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others rather than his own; and who appears well in any company; a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
- John Walter Wayland
The other week my dad was telling me about pledging for Sigma Alpha Epsilon while at the University of Texas. He told me that they had to memorize, "The True Gentleman" and SAE creed. I looked it up and I really felt like the words are a good representation of what a gentleman should be like. It is sad that some boys in college don't observe chivalry or respect. So I hope anyone who wants to call themselves a true gentleman looks at this quote and live by it, because for a SAE, another frat or no frat at all. These are words that should be lived by and by doing that nothing can go wrong.

Winter's tale and her new tail

I just watched the movie, Dolphin Tale, and I was so inspired by Winter, the dolphin. Her ability to overcome a disability of having her tail amputated is amazing. A tail on the dolphin is vital in order for a dolphin's survival. So the fact that someone can make a prosthetic tail for Winter is almost a miracle. Winter is alive and healthy as can be today. Check it out for your self and see a live view of Winter! It is amazing that we have come so far in technology today, that we can give a dolphin their swimming ability back and even walking ability or etc. to a human being. Watching this movie made me feel blessed and thankful that I have the ability to walk, swim and etc. But knowing that we live in a world of progression, there will always be something to help anyone and everyone out if you have faith. You can make anything happen.
