Happy (belated) Birthday Karissa!

Even though Karissa's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, I still want to do a post about her.
When Karissa was born, little did I know that she would become my best friend, but God knew. He gave me the greatest sister that there could ever be. Karissa is always there to encourage me to be a better woman, she is always there for me to talk too (for I talk a lot!), she is always guiding me in any decision and she shows me the fault of my actions in the most loving and gentle manner as any could.

They say that the greatest friend listens. At night when the day is all done and gone, I lie in my bed and me and Karissa have a long chat, but now that I look back at those nights, I realize that I did most the talking. She is always there to listen to my griefs, my joys, my sorrows and my plans for the future, and yet she guides and directs my fiery nature. She rebukes me in a most loving and kind way. The greatest leaders are servants...and that is Karissa.

I thank God for the gift that He has given me in my sister, Karissa. I pray that our friendship shall continue to grow through all the upcoming years of our lives.
I love you Karissa!
Happy 16th Birthday, Sis!

You're Invited!

Centennial Play

On the twenty third of August at 6:30 p.m, at the Roxy Ann Grange in Medford, there is going to be a stage production on the War for Independence, put on by your local homeschool students. This play is focused on the time that America became a free nation and is written by a home schooled senior, Kaila Anderson.

The story is about a young man and woman, who live in Virginia in the year of 1776. It is the story of a nation, that is struggling to regain her freedom that she once had, and of the people who believe in their country and are willing to make sacrifices for her freedom. It is about families who face hardships together, and who rely on the strength of God. Come see a story of love, loss, joy, hardships and eventually victory!

All this is to take place on the twenty third of August, at the Roxy Ann Grange in Medford (1850 Spring St. Medford OR). The evening shall begin at 6:30pm, and following it shall be a dessert social. There is an admission fee of $2 per person, or $5 a family. For more information contact Kaila Anderson- (541) 665-5238.
