My Birthday Wish - Day 31

Today I turned 15. I did school and baked my own birthday cake from scrach (I wanted to do one of the box kinds). Then I went to cross country practice, which was good, but today was a hard day. We did speedwork. I ran the 1st mile in about 8:30 which is pretty good for me. On the 2nd mile I was pretty slow, but I didn't walk!  And my best friend just joined the team! she did really good for her first day!  She did her best and even though she was exausted she didn't stop. Which I really admire. Once we were done with the speedwork we did a cool down (or whatever you all it) and it rained. IT RAINED!! Today was one of those sunny days with a bright blue sky and some white fluffy clouds, but it rained anyway! What was really amasing about the rain is that it was for me. I told God that what I wanted for my birthday was rain at XC practice. I wasn't sure if it would happen or not but I still asked and just trusted that God would do whatever was needed to be done and He did it. He gave me rain for my birthday.

Let us acknowledge the LORD;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth."
- Hosea 6:3

I also got a camera, a really good one!! but it isn't here yet.
Well acutally it isn't mine... it's the buisness's. Mom and dad are setting me up in a buisness!! Dad's the "President" and we have some other people involved, but the main goal of the buisness it to sell pictures!! But more about that tomorrow. It's late and I still have to pack for my aunt's house in Florence!
