Why I go to Church on Saturday

I come into contact with some many people from every walks of life. From the elderly to babies, and a common question I always get ask is why are you closed on Saturday. And without hesitation I say because I got to church that day. For a second they seem intrigued as to why a young person like me goes to church on the Saturday.... But I always turn with a smile and say "we are open every other day, and it hasn't affected us closing on the Saturday."

You may be asking why I go to church on a Saturday? But first I want to make this clear... I don't expect you to understand what I believe, and same with you, can not expect to understand what you believe. All I ask is that you respect my views, and I'll do the same...

Now where were we, that's right. I observe the day of rest or also known as Sabbath on every Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. Why? Because it is written the Bible. Now many people believe that we don't need to keep The Commandment. It's told in the bible (THE COMMANDMENT ARE TO BE KEPT) 

It is clearly told in Exodus 20:8-11 NKJV:
[8] "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. [9] Six days you shall labor and do all your work, [10] but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. [11] For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

This day was given to us so that we could relax, take a break from working 6 days of the week and to come together praising our wonderful creator.

Now you might be thinking what are you allowed to do... Well hear is what I do...

I try to prepare most things before the sunset on Friday, so I don't have to do much
I wake up, go for a walk on my parent property, soak in the day.
I read some of the literature that is given from my church and read 1 book of Proverbs.
I shave my legs in my room, which is looking over a beautiful hill side and listen to a sermon. 
I go and have a shower, put a beautiful dress on and lesson to the rest of the sermon and apply my make.
I make lunch before I go
Then drive to the hall

Things that ok to do

Making a meal
Starting the dishwasher
Shaving your legs

Things I don't do

Washing the clothes
Cleaning the house

We are not like most churches, we are greeted by the beautiful and handsome teens in suits and dresses,  handing out Hymnal and weekly updates. Exactly 1:30pm with the occasional few still talking. We start with 3 hymns all written from the Bible (not hands in the air and shaking like you don't care) played either on the piano or iPod, followed by an opening pray by one of the gentlemen. We hear from a speaker who will take on a topic from the bible and talk for 15-20 minutes then follows by a hymn, notices of upcoming events. Then it's time for the Sermon, which can last anywhere from 45mins to 1 and 1/4 hours, on topics like...

The Sabbath
Prayer and so much more

From these I learnt so much, about being kind, learning to grow up as a godly woman and knowing my great future ahead. It's these men of God, that I am able to under my Creator. 

I have found it a great blessing to meet like minded people from all around the world, from the UK, USA to Africa. I have only been in this church for 2 years and 9 months, but it feels like forever. I wouldn't trade anything, my life is almost complete and I have a purpose for living.

If you found this quite intriguing please don't hesitate and email some questions, I will be more than happy to answer them.

Dreaming of a Happy Ending

I have come to realise that life can be taken from us so quickly! With or without Cancer. You mighty have seen the recent movie The Fault in out Stars. It has been one of the most moving movies I have ever watch!!! I guess I never realised how much you could love a person and for them to be taken away so quickly. This really hit a cord with me! To be perfectly honest I cry so much after I watched the movie. I prayed to God, the amazing creator of this earth, that I'm so grateful for this opportunity to be a somewhat healthy human and to understand His plan for me. I guess many have dreams to have a success for job, family and life. And I do too, but their is something I have wanted to do for most of my life, and that is to meet people that influence me...

My name is Ebonee and I'm 20 years old. And I would to meet 25 people, not to become famous but to meet them and ask them about them... For most of us, to meet a famous person is sometimes a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I have realised, like so many others. Life is short and we wish to make the most of it and dream ahead... But I can not! I'm not afraid of dying, I'm afraid I will miss out on opportunities. I have so many dreams but I don't know how long I have to complete them. I'm not a cancer patient waiting for the next doctors appointment. I live in the real world, we're you have to drive yourself to work, make friends and laugh a peoples jokes! 

I was diagnose at the age of 2 with server Asthma. Asthma is not something I can control. I don't need to be confined to a hospital bed. But I'm living a daily struggle of survival. Asthma can take peoples lives, as simple as a finger click. I don't want you to take petty on me... I have so many dreams I want to complete, this is why I am writing to you...

Below is a list of people I would love to meet or even me be in contact with. I really admire these people. I'm not a creepy stalker that knows everything about them. I would love to meet these people and see how they work. These people inspire me to be a better person and I would like to tell them that. I also would love to sing with them some of them as well.

The people I would love to meet...
Rascal flats
Hunter Hayes
Ansel Elgort
Zac Efrom
Keith Urban
Celine Dion
Demi Lovato
Nick Jonas
Lennon and Maisy
One direction
Louis Cole
Nash Grier
Cameron Dallas
Carrie Underwood
Duggar family
Jack Harries
Guy Tang
Josh Hutchson
Bethany Hamilton
Jackie Evancho
Alex Pettyfer
Taylor Lautner
Rachel Bilson

I'm not asking to you to move the moon, I'm asking to meet 25 people. 

I fear every day might be my last, so can you please help my dreams come true, by sharing this and tagging these people. I pray everyday that a miracles can happen, for everyone I meet. 

I guess this would be my happy ending...

Thanks Ebonee

Honeybear the Shar Pei Puppy: Adventures

I thought you all would like to meet Honey.

Honey is a year old Bear Shar Pei that we couldn't resist getting her. She has definitely brought craziness to this family. She has recently learnt how to fetch the tennis ball. I hope you enjoy the video and photos of Honeybear...

Enjoy your day
