OK so i havent updated in awhile and its becuase alot of things have happned in my life that really affected me like no other. all i gotta say is that life is short and for those of you who believe in GOD always be ready to go with Him...
heres my week in a recap...
in the morning part of this day i went to Verdugo to pick up three of my friends because there mom was out of town and for the last part of the week i was picking them up. So i went in my moms car only because later that day i was going tot he Dodger game with Heidi and friends so i was getting a ride form them. Point is i was driving my moms car. I was at a stop sign about to merge into the main road when i was rear ended by a car. SCARY my hands were shaking and my goodness crazy thoughts ran through my head. THANK GOD everything worked out fine i was just shaken up. So in my 6 months of driving i got into my first accident. WOW...so later that day i was dropped off at Heidis house where we waited for alex (monroe) to pick up. ALL i got to say is that his car was worse than a broken car. To add it up windos wouldnt roll down and others would just say down and also parts of the car were just falling out AND the Gas meter didnt even WORK! so yeah..but it was fun untill we had to pick up Alex (school) and Johnnie and lets just say Heidi rode shot gun and alex, johnnie and i had to squish ourselves into the back! UNESSARY CLOSENESS! (sp?) yeah we went to pat n oscars! good food..and TIP: NEVER LET ALEX BUDDY UP WITH YOU TO EAT HE DOESNT PAY FOR SQWUAT!! so we scored ourselves free beach balls and monroe alex went back and got even more to toss around at the game. We get to the game LATE only to learn that Alex Alex and Johnnie cant follow directions! lol...yeah so are seats were the nose bleed ones and we did more excercise than we had all done in our lives just climbing the stairs. The game was fun and the ride back was too...ohh i have some words by wise men
Alex (monroe) "Do you have Myspace?" Chick "YEah everybody does" ..ways to pick up a girl at a Dodger game! lol...
I went to qunice i was in..to sum it up it was boring and it was hot. And the dress i had to wear wasnt helping at all. So yeah
I went to church with my family like any normal sunday. During the time when everybody was singing i stepped out to get some air when i saw my brother huddled with som of our friends. I see by older brothers wife and i ask what wrong. She tells me that my Brother Oscar best friend was killed. It hurt so much because he was also my friend and someone who was never mad and always made you laugh. By far this was the worst day of all my summer only becuse i had never had anyone so close pass away. My other friend from church was with my bro's friend and he was hit and flung across the freeway. They were on their way back from a chruch service in San Diego. Thank God that he only broke his left leg and that now he can testify that God was with him the whole way.His being alivew is really a miracle of God. It just means God is not done with his pan with him yeat. Something like this has never happned to me.I questioned God's plan even though i already know that his plan to take my friend at the age of 23 was part of a bigger and better plan. Its hard to accept that it is better for my friend to be gone but yet thats the reality of it all. Its been a tough 2 weeks dealing with this because trying to accept that even though you dont see a loved one because they believed in God and had given their life to Him he is up in Heaven better off than we will EVER be. I guess what i am trying to say is that in my heart i know i will see him again when God decideds its time for me to go.
His memorial service on 8/4 proved to me how many lives my friend had touched and just how much we and his family loved him. 8/5 was his funeral. I guess thats when it really hit me that he was gone becuase it was the time that i really saw that he was gone and was being burried under the dirt. No words can really describe just what typoe of wonderful person he was. all i can really say is that he really was someone you couldnt help but love.
"Heaven Sent the Sweetest Thing" these are words that i really believe in my heart because he rerally was an amazing person who always had a simle for you.
for those who understand spanish "Porque el vivir es Cristo y el morir Ganancia"
The Bible says this and it is so true...but i guess we all tend to be selfish and want those who you love to be with you forever. But the sum of this entry is just to tell you life is short get your stuff straight with God and if you dont know him yet accept Him into your life.
