Opposite way.... for best reading, turn up your speakers to hear song while reading the following. ;)

I really love this song right now. I kinda feel like its talking about my life sometimes. I know that sounds really emo, but I don't mean for it too. (I'm actually in a pretty good mood. Its been a good day:) I've been told several times this year to "Just be a kid!". But Honestly, I don't think I know how to. What does it mean to be a kid anyways? I guess it means to not worry about adult things, like money and things like that. I don't worry about money, in fact, I think I have a pretty good handle on it...I think. (the way I approach it, not my ability to save it or spend it. ha) Its just money. While its important to use it wisely, its also important to not let it control your life and the way you treat others. If you have it, good. Spend it wisely. If you don't, don't whine and complain and let the lack of it, take over your life. Trust God. I know your probably thinking that its easy for me to say this, I'm only 16 after all. But in truth, I've had to work for all the money I've every had. And these last few months its been my responsibility to take care of both my mom and I. I have to put gas in my car so my mom can go to work everyday, I have to buy all my own clothes, I have to buy food for us to eat. And the list goes on. But Jesus has been faithful in providing the work for me to do these things. I have a wonderful brother who taught me to be generous. And a wonderful Grandpa who taught him. And above all, I have a holy and righteous savior who has paid the ultimate price, for not only me, but for everyone else on the planet.
I can't even begin to imagine the pain and heartache he went through. It makes me shudder to even try. I guess the moral of the story is, our hearts are all we get to take with us when we leave this earth, so lets try to make them the best we can. Lets not let them be taken over by money, or bitterness or hurt. But instead, give them over to Jesus. After all, it should be a lot easier then what he did for us.
