What I Love About Delaney-March 2014

Favorite Quote:"Swag with me mum". This is something new we started when we see a car go by and they are all leaned out looking like they own the world. So we will say "swag"and do our own lean while we look at the other car. Its fun and people look at us all crazy.

Scripture: Philippians 2:5-12 (NIV)
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness.And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself  by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,   in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Where I hope to see you grow:  My constant prayer is that you will grow in your relationship with Christ. That you will make a faith that is our own and develop a personal relationship with Jesus that you can turn to daily no matter what the situation is. I continue to pray that when you face struggles and adversities that you learn to turn to scripture on how you should handle them and not just your friends and society.

What has impressed me most this month: Your overall attitude. You have been in a better mood lately. and not as pissy as you have been over the course of the last year. You are slightly more social and learning to express what you are feeling and what is bothering you.You have started to journal and draw again and those things seem to keep you from harming yourself and allow you to release some of your inner turmoil. You are actually being nice to your brother again and look forward to things that we have planned, which is a vast improvement from even 1 month ago.I just want to see you get healthy and strong and be positive about life and the hope that is found in Christ.

Favorite things we did:
1. Movie Night- You set up movie night for your AHG Troop and we went out to Forney to watch Black Beauty in one of my friends backyards.You loved watching the movie under the stars on a huge projection screen that covered the back yard. You made a lovely thank you sign for our host and had the whole troop sign it.You played waitress to everyone all night and helped with the clean up as well. It was just a really fun night and we were invited back this summer when the weather will be more cooperative.

2. AHG Camp Out- Our first AHG campout was this month and even though you did not want to go at first you ended up having a great time-minus the incredibly cold weather. You learned alot of new skills from pitching a tent, making a lean to, 3 different ways to start a fire, Emergency Preparedness, knot tying  and alot more. We even did our 2 mile highway cleanup, which was kinda miserable actually. Rockwall people are messy litterers.

3.Reel FX Animation Studio Field Trip-Although you did not get to do this with me,it was one of your favorite things you got to go and do this month. Your dad ended up having to take you since I could not get off work.:(  We know a guy that works here and they have made the Freebirds,  Beasts of Burden, El Tigre, The Adventures of Manny Rivera,  Rise of the Guardians movies and others and we got a tour to see how a movie is put together and all the elements at play. You loved the waiting room and all the art and graphics they have all around the building. Since you talked about it for almost a week, I am assuming yu had a really good time
4.Babysitting Adventures- Every Thursday you babysit for another church and you always come back with great stories of what the babies tried to get away with and do to you. They seem to love and try to eat your hair and nose-which is pretty funny. You also get to change the stinky diapers which you love oh so much (hehehhe). I know you love it though.You look forward to it every week and even made sure your dad brought you over spring break so you did not miss. Who knows maybe you will make the next Adventures in Babysitting movie.
