Question 6

Seeing as it is Easter, my question for today is what is your favorite Bible verse? You don't have to be religious to pick one...I gave you a whole list (365) to pick from, and there are verses about flowers, animals, love....

Question 4

Is there a song that you have to sing along to? When you hear it, you just have to sing, there is no way to stop it?

This is one for me...I love the music and the words

Question 2

Since the last question was too hard for most of you, here is an easier one.

What is an animal that you admire/love but would never own?


I got to go see "Cavalia" last night!!! It was amazing. I mentioned it to my boss, who loves Cirque du Soliel stuff, and she asked if I wanted to go with her. I said I wanted to go, but could not afford it...she said I did not ask if you could afford it, I asked if you wanted to go with me. What an amazing boss!!!

I finished work (Korna (the pet supply store)) at 5, then Anna picked me up, we went to the seabus, Anna went to hang with Kristel and Yvi, and I took the Skytrain to Metrotown, then walked to a Sushi restaurant, met Alysha, Jason, Ashley and Cam, had a quick dinner. Then Jason dropped Alysha and I off at Cavalia.

I bought a T-shirt and a magnet and Alysha bought the DVD (she paid for us to do a "Stables Tour" in exchange for me taking one of the dogs she is pet sitting for a night.

The show was amazing, and I would suggest to all (even those who are not "horse people") to see it. The stunts, acrobatics, music, lighting were amazing. The horses were gorgeous. They had Lusitano's Spanish Purebred (Andalusian), Quarter horses, Paint horses, a warmblood, 2 Percherons, two 8 month old mustangs...

The rider's and acrobats were very charismatic and made the show even better. You could tell they loved performing.

It was awesome...the things they did....We were not allowed to take pics during the show, but here is some of the stable tour and my shirt. The pictures are not great, they are on my iphone.

The other night after the dinner (Sunday) we played a game called Loaded Questions. It got me thinking that I should ask some questions. It won't be every day like the Bible verses, but hopefully a few times a week. Here is the first question.

What is one job you admire, but could never do?

Young Adults Retreat Weekend

I had one of the most amazing weekends this weekend. It was the young adults group retreat weekend. I think there was about twenty of us that were between 19-30ish, then the speaker (Ben) and the two young adult leaders (Ruth and Andrew) and their kids.

We got there between 6-8:30 on Friday, had a quick session on what we wanted God to do in our lives this weekend, had a fifteen minutes of silence, then we were free till the next morning. We stayed up pretty late (between midnight and 2am playing games (and a few did some dancing as they are getting ready for swing dancing competitions)) We played Dutch Blitz, which I became addicted to (it is sooo much fun).

We were up for breakfast at 8:30 on Saturday, had a session on our calling till 12:30. We then had lunch and then free time until dinner (5:30) so we mostly played volleyball or Dutch Blitz. Then we had free time till 7:30, then we had another session on our calling. That went till after 10, and Ben and Andrew prayed for us (individually) After that we played "Freeze" and "Fishbowl" which were really fun and went till after midnight. Then we played Dutch Blitz and some people danced till about 1-2am

We were up for breakfast again at 8:30, then packed up and had a time of worship and testimony and then headed home. I am going out to Red Robin with some of the other young adults in about twenty minutes.

We learned a lot about our calling (how God has a different (usually longer) sense of timing than we do, and we want everything to be clear now, but He will show us in due time) We learned that we are all on a journey, and that we are being trained right now, that everything we do up until our calling is clear is training for our calling. We watched clips from "Zorro" and "The karate Kid" to show how important training is, and that although it may not always seem to make sense while we are training, in the end we will find that we have what we need.

We also learned a lot about learning to recognize the lies in our lives and how to rebuke them, and to not let the devil get a foothold. (How he tells us that we are all alone, no one loves us, we are not pretty, smart, special...)

It was an amazing weekend and I feel lighter and cleaner and I am really glad that I went.

Starting today, our church is doing a 21 day fast. It can be any kind of fast (media, food, chocolate... and does not have to be for the whole 21 days). We are to replace the time that we would usually use to do that activity (eating, watching TV...) to meditate and read the Bible, and to make a space for God. I am giving up Netflix. I don't have a TV, but when I come home from work, I go straight to my computer and watch Netflix( after showering) until bed time. I am going to start coming home and reading the Bible, and writing in a journal the Bible verses that go with the issues I need cleared up. I feel like this weekend really opened up for me to be able to do this, having been away from my computer and with other Christians for the weekend, it really made me ready to study and worship the glory of God.

Anyways it is time for me to head out for dinner now, so thats it for this post.
