I Am Second

Life is always pulling me in different directions. Being a teenaged girl the world always says that we aren’t pretty enough or skinny enough. But I have to get through that and I know that with God I can. God thinks I am good enough and that all I need is Him. In Psalms it says that He knit me together in my mother’s womb and all of my days are written in His book. You know, going to a Christian school is great– but its not perfect. We have drugs, just a little cussing outside of school, and drinking. I hate how people say that we are in a bubble. Being in a bubble is good because we don’t become numb to all of the bad things like I did at Deer Creek. We should go into the world and be able to preach to people. But why do we seem to talk the talk but not walk the walk. In Bible we can answer the questions and do good on the test, but do we get it? In chapel you see people barely paying attention, talking to their friends, laughing at people who are having a personal worship, or not worshiping at all. But yet they are the Christian kids who love God. Is love only half hearted? No. God is puting in his effort and can’t we do the same? But I’m not just here to vent or sound hypocritical, I want to teach the people at my school. I want to really see our school light on fire for God. I am trying. I am worshiping. I am doing what I can to get to know my God. And I pray that what I am trying to do for me can help everyone. I want to see God when I get to heaven and hear Him call me a good and faithful servant. I want to bring people with me so that we can party in the streets of heaven and worship God whole heartedly for-EVER..

Hi, I am Holly Hoehner and I am second.


Science Camp.

Right now my brother is at Science Camp and I am not.

This is a problem.

Why? you may ask. Well the reason is its Science Camp. Who does’t LOVE Science Camp? No school or homework for a few days, you’re in a cabin with like 10 of your friends, a talent show, staying up late, competition, game room, and hanging out and socializing. Uhm HELLO!? I am so jealous of Trey right now. I had the BEST time at Science Camp last year. I especially remember the beast of a drama video my class put together and Brittany, Abby, Brooke, and Semaja’s talent show performance. Funniest thing ever. Those girls know how to entertain. Haha. Anyways, I got to see the depths of certain people and talk to God. I got to get to know some of my teachers and fall in love with my class. Like it really hit me that I have an awesome class. Oh something else I remember! So there was this fairly manly girl that worked at the rock climbing area and she must have had it bad for Griffin. Haha! She knew him by name and was just chatting away about him. He wasn’t even in our group! Haha so hysterical. Oh! Another thing. Katheryn, Dystany and I were in a canoe group and we all can’t canoe for the life of us. By the time our group was coming back we were still trying to figure it out. Ya. So then after we carried our canoes to the other pond Mrs. Lux tried to help us. We would end up going way right and then way left and then back again. (I think she wanted to tip our canoe.) Then when I was in the front, Katheryn in middle and Dystany in back. Well we got going towards all of these giant branches and into the shore. Dystany was paddling me into these trees and I had to duck so I didn’t get hit. So I was laying in Katheryn’s lap and there was a GIANT SPIDER hanging right in my face and I was flipping out. I was screaming to back up and trying to paddle. It must have been a rather humorous sight. Mrs. Lux was just sitting in her canoe witnessing this. (I didn’t blame her. I would have been doubled over in hysterics if I saw that happen to someone.) Ok, end of story time. But basically I just wish that 9th graders could go to Science Camp. It was so fun.


My Revelation

I was at cheer a few weeks ago and it hit me. Everytime before we would go full out we would talk about how this routine was going to be the one to give Orson, Lyndsey, Mrs. Tebow, and Mrs. Kobs cheer bumps. Or this routine would be the routine that we hit solid– pyramid and all. We would circle up and have a little pep talk. We talked about performing our hearts out and giving it our all, but that fire of passion we had would only last so long. You know, cause when you’re yelling and jumping and running and stunting it can get just a tad tiring.. Ha. How about very tiring. Anyways, so after the jump section is when we start to die. And then all of the sudden our words kind of drift. What happened to this passion that we had? Its pretty much gone. Ruh-roh. Everyone is to busy holding the stunt or the timing on the tumbling section and we get lazy. Thats what happens. Ok so now you’re probably wondering where this is all heading. And I guess I’ll tell you.

Its God.

Were the same way with God the way we are with cheer. (I know! Can you believe I can find similarities in my 2 favorite things?) We go to camp or church and we listen to the message and we get all pumped up and want to make a change. But then we get thrown into school and activities and friends and all that crazy, mixed up teenage drama and we forget. We get to caught up in everything else and we don’t have any time for God. Um thats a problem. No time for our CREATOR?

So now that cheer season is over ( 😦 ) we all can focus on other things.

The End.
