  1. facts of life

    January 31, 2006 by louissa

    teaching really is quite fun.

    i found myself sitting down with a very sanguine student this afternoon and he caught on faster then he had a right to. and then another little girl noticed the mole on the side of my face (what?! you’ve never noticed it? here’s a picture to show you)… where was i? oh yeah, she noticed the mole last week and giggling said, “you’ve got hair growing out of the side of your face!” and all i could think to say was, “yup. but anyways… what note is this?”

    what else was i supposed to say? she was right. i not only have hair all over my face, but alot that came with the mole as well. it’s just a fact of life.

    what is wrong with me? why am i telling you this?!

    i just don’t think that it’s normal for someone to volunteer information like this.


  2. think outside the bun

    i ordered something other then two soft-shelled tacos tonight at taco bell.

    i can’t even remember what i ordered, but it had tomatoes in it.

    and i ate it and i thought it was yummy.

    yay! for diversity and yay! for louissa eating tomatoes.

    i think she might be growing up.

    it’s nights like this, that i think owning my own car would make my life simpler. but i chose to not buy a car like most kids my age do — i bought a piano. in the long run it’s a better investment. i just have to keep telling myself that.

    why must it take a death to shake off the apathetic spirit i have?

    Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
    O what a foretaste of glory divine!
    Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
    Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

    Jesus is mine!

  5. old school and a girl named louissa

    January 26, 2006 by louissa

    at times i miss the simplicity of life when i was younger.

    who would have thought that a girl for Derbyshire (where Mr.Darcy lived) would find my site and comment? she left a comment on a few posts previous, but i was so excited that i’ll post it here.

    i couldnt find anywhere else to write a note but i have one for you, so here it is. my name is Louissa too i’m 14 and i live in England, Derbyshire. i thought it was quite cool the you have the same name and spell it the same. how did oyu end up having a two ss in it.my parents just decided they didn’t want a z sound so they put ss instead. email back if you can thanks
    -louissa

    anyways. now that i’m totally geeked.

    i love england. i love Derbyshire. i love mr.darcy. and i love girls who have the same name as me.


  6. my music

    January 25, 2006 by louissa

    it’s easier for me to admit to liking country music, then to admit to the fact that i’m a “not so very” closet-like fan of pop singers, kelly clarkson and avril lavigne. hmm… something does seem to be messed up.

    And I don’t wanna fall to pieces
    I just want to sit and stare at you
    I don’t want to talk about it
    And I don’t want a conversation
    I just want to cry in front of you
    I don’t want to talk about it
    Cuz I’m in Love With you


  7. soccer moms drive minivans

    January 23, 2006 by louissa

    …burt’s bees beeswax lip balm is the best stuff.

    …i felt like a soccer mom this morning as i drove the minivan, dropped a sister off for a violin lesson, and then went to the bank and then the grocery store. it probably didn’t help that i was wearing a borrowed pair of jeans from my mom. yup, you read that correctly. a borrowed pair of jeans from my mom. i just can’t figure out if that means she’s wicked cool or i’m the biggest nerd ever. hmm… love you mom.

    …i’m taking a few years off of my sister’s life everyday that i don’t do my hair correctly. guess i need to work on that.

    …i’ve been thinking about something that paula haller said yesterday in youth. i’ve grown up knowing that pride is one of my weaknesses, but i didn’t think that it would show itself in this form.

    …my recent attitude towards life reminds me of some lyrics off of nickel creek’s newest album (which probably isn’t a good thing since it seems that chris thile’s life is falling apart since all the songs are so depressing).

    starin’ down the stars
    jealous of the moon
    you wish you could fly
    just being where you are
    there’s nothin’ you can do
    if you’re too scared to try

    now don’t get too worried about me. sure, it might seem like i’m really down, but i’m fine. it all comes down to this pride issue that i’m trying to get past.

    i mean, if you are one of those paranoid freaks who worries about my eating/sleeping/living habits and after reading this you’re breaking out in a sweat, you could always pray for me. i do like prayer.

    and while you’re praying, go to his site. he’s got this wicked cool photo slideshow thing in the corner — but it’s not like the regular flickr one! dude, totally high-tech!

    : )


  8. stuff

    January 22, 2006 by louissa

    it’s 9:30 pm and i’m exhausted. long day — long week. and another one coming up.

    my sister is going to have a baby. no, not her, you silly. her. another baby and a happy aunt once again.

    i lead worship this morning. my monitor didn’t work through the whole service and then i didn’t hear my dad when he asked to sing a verse once again. yeah, i felt just a little bit out of it.

    wow. i need to go to bed.

    yes, i love our new baby.

    we had the oldest two at the house this morning.

    i love ‘em, i love ‘em, i love ‘em.

    so much.

    you should get yourself some nieces and nephews. they’re the best.


  10. this and that

    January 18, 2006 by louissa

    i’m not feeling very good and it’s rather dreary out. i don’t like today very much.

    i taught two little girls on monday morning. while one sister waited for her turn to have a lesson i gave her a notebook of mine and she had fun drawing all sorts of fun pictures. i forgot about it until yesterday afternoon when i went to write in the notebook and came across this picture. i thought it was just darling.

    on days like this all i want to do is spend some time with mr. darcy.

    i’m so thankful that we’re constantly being sanctified and conformed to His image. i’m so entirely thankful for His Holy Spirit that is always convicting me so that i might become even more like Him. i’m thankful that He is faithful and gives His grace and love in abundance.
