When things in life are going wonderfully we are joyful. But, when something goes wrong, suddenly everything is dark and dreary. Shouldn't we be joyful in that too? Yeah, I know, it's not easy to be joyful when you recieve bad news, or slam you fingers in a door, but shouldn't we always try to be joyful, and to rejoice in life, regardless of what is happening? "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice" Shouldn't we be thinking that? Sometimes bad and depressing things happen, but regardless of that, shouldn't we rejoice in the Lord?
Just a thought.

So there is this amazing little (well, not so little) person in my life. Her name is Tiffany and she is my little sister. Tiff is, as far as people go, my everything. I absolutely adore her, more than pretty much anything, other than Christ our Savior. She is a firey red-head with spirit and gumption. She is able to make me laugh when I am down. Whenever anything goes wrong she is always there. We've shared many a time together. We've shared laughs, we've shared tears. I absolutely love her more than anything on this earth.

It's amazing, really, how different people are. We are all made of the same stuff, and yet we are totally different. Just look at how many different races of people there are, the different colors of our skin, our different languages. It truly amazes me, because after the initial skin-deep appearances, we are all the same. We're all made by God, and all in His image. And yet, we all are unique. We all have different personalities, different likes and dislikes, different views. I must say, the human race really fascinates me.
