Hi friends. The past couple of weeks have been rather difficult in trying to make a decision. See, each year in the month of July my church youth group heads to camp for a week ( Sun- Fri.), and each year I make the choice not to go. The year before last, I sent in my registration slip, I was packed and ready to go, my parents drove up to the camp with us, and well when it came time to un-pack and get settled in for the week, I chickened out and wanted to go home with my parents! At that point, I didn't care what my friends thought about me; I just wanted to get out of there! As I say sometimes, it was out of my " creature comforts"! Each year, my friends, youth pastor & parents encourage me to go and have a good time, but each time I say NO!! The past couple of months I have felt the burden to go thinking that this would be a "BIG" step in my life! So, this year on Sunday, July 5th, I will be going to camp for the first time in my life! Philippians 4:13 which says, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me," has been a HUGE inspiration to me in the past couple of months in making my decision!

OK...so today is the day. I finally set up my own blog! For the past couple of months I have watched my mom on her blog Home Is As Close As A Robin's Nest. You should check it out. I've been telling myself that I should set up a blog, too, so finally today I took the plunge...yipee! :) WOW! Blogland is amazing, so many things that you can do! I plan to blog about my everyday life happenings and add pictures...sort of like a journal only on the computer and open for the world to see. I pray my love of God and family are reflected in my blog. As for the name of my blog, I'm not always a "Drama Queen," but being 14 sure has its drama moments!!
