Grace's Corner of the World: The Return of Grace

     I know that this is a very late blog, and I apologize. I am currently back in the United States, and have a very small amount of internet where I am. Since I'm back, I figured that I would talk a little about my time here.
            So far, it has been amazing seeing friends and family. I am blessed to be able to return. I've gone to favorite restaurants, hung out with people I missed and visited some familiar parks that I haven't been to in around two years. I also got to go to King's Island, one of my favorite theme parks.
     The more time I spend with my old friends and with my family, the more I feel like God really made all of this possible. I couldn't be back here without Him. I am proud to call Him my God, because He is more than worth the title. He has loved me more than I have ever deserved, and I know that He always will.
           Thank you, Jesus, for loving me when I don't deserve it. For listening to me when I speak. Thank you. I know that You alone can love me the way You do. Love all of us the way You do. So, Lord... Thank you.

Things I've Learned from Watching My Mom and Dad

I've learned a lot from watching my Mom and Dad's marriage. It's led me to know what I want to look for in a marriage, eventually, when I'm older, if I ever DO get married. Their marriage helps me know what a marriage is really about, and I couldn't thank them more for that.

You see, a lot of girls my age dream about marrying the perfect guy. Living in the perfect house. Having a lot of money and clothes and having a happy family and good, stable jobs. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I think it's a bit unrealistic. It's not impossible, I suppose (other than the perfect guy, thing. Nobody's perfect! *Hannah Montana song now stuck in my head forever*), but in order to have all those things, you need to have a few others.

So, here's what I want for my future, if I ever get married.

Jesus. Not every marriage has Jesus, and a lot of them do okay without Him. But it's a lot harder, I think. Without Jesus, who do you have as your role …

My Allotted Teenage Moment: My Cat is Da Best (I think every cat owner can identify with this)

I have decided, after giving it minimum consideration, that my cat is the best cat ever. I am, of course, biased, but I do not care.

You see, my dear cat, Layla, is a drama queen (as seen in the image to the right), but thankfully she's a drama queen in the best possible way. She likes to follow me around the house, wakes me up early in the morning, ordering me to let her out of my room, even though she often insists on coming inside on her own (though not always. Other times, I haul her up the stairs anyway). She's quite patient, especially for a Siamese cat, as she lets my sister and me do pretty much whatever we like to her (i.e. picking her up, petting her, giving her unwanted hugs, etc.), so long as we don't hurt her. Her eyes are the colors of an icicle and I'm sure she can stare into your soul, though that has not been scientifically proven (yet). Her adorable little white-tipped paws are fluffy and amazing, except when her claws dig into your skin as she tries t…

Girl Talk: Makeup

I recently got my first tube of lipstick. I was very excited, as I see makeup the same was as I see colored pencils - it's nowhere close to easy, but the process is enjoyable and fun, and it usually turns out pretty in the end (unless I totally mess up and have to start all over). The lipstick I got is a brighter color than I thought it was going to be, but I like it all the same.


My little sister doesn't seem too thrilled with the development. Jokingly, she calls it red (although I am CONVINCED it's just a bright/deep pink), and says things like "oh, you don't need it! Why are you wearing it?!" 

Since all of her comments are in jest, I take no offense at them. I play along and I laugh, and I pretend to defend myself as if I really care. But the more she does it, the more I realize that girls have to face this in real life all the time.

People tell you things like "that color's not good on you" or " way too much makeup there, hon." If you…
