Love your neighbor as yourself? .....Finnnee.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I need Faith. I need to trust that you are there for me. You know that people in my life drive me up the wall and they make me want to kick them in the shins, but You convince me that I shouldn't. ( Because it's wrong...I guess. Not simply because I just shouldn't.) Help me not to act on my emotions. Also help me to not get so irritated so easily. ...and you know all my problems, I don't want to admit them ALL on my blog. But I'm sure people already know half of them ;)

Someone told me about these verses that would help me:
 Romans: 14:19-23

My favorite parts of the verse is:
15 If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died. 16 Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.
20 ... but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall.
23 But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.

And for Romans 15:1-13:
I love everything it says. Look it up if you don't know it :)

Thank you for the people that help me out :) I'm gonna be needing a lot more of it too.

Happy Birthday Jonah and Ellie-Anne! :)

I think it's so cute how they share a birthday! We celebrated Jonah's birthday on the 6th by going to Chuck E. Cheese. He wanted to have all his friends there, but we couldn't afford to pay for anyone except the Tannehills, so it was just a family thing. (I guess he has friends at his parties at the "important" birthdays. Such as 5, 10, 13, 16...) But yesterday, on both Ellie and Jonah's birthday, we went to the Tannehills for a PARTAYY! The first birthday is always fun. The 1 year old gets their own cake and gets to dig in! It was so cute. I got a cute video of us singing to her:

´╗┐Aunt Melissa made that cake too! And it was suuuper delish. I love lemon cake.

There were 12 kids there last night! CHAOS! I love it! Their expressions on their face are amazing. They were in awe of Soren. He was making a funny face. The only thing you could see was the whites of his eyes!  Impressive.
