It snowed today!!!! I was so excited! I raced out the door and took a zillion pictures. Okay, maybe not a zillion, but when I take pictures, I take a lot (Just ask my mom). I wish I could post them here, but since I didn't take the pictures with our digital camera, so I have to wait until the pictures are developed and then take pictures of the pictures! : )

High-speed, name for blog

For Christmas, we got high-speed internet!!! Yippee!!!!! It is so much easier to blog! :-)

Can anyone think of a different title name for my blog -- Megan's Blog isn't very exciting. I was thinking about taking something from Scripture, but I am not sure what. I was thinking about "Aiming for perfection" taken from II Corinthians 13:11.

Family, Part 2

Family... what would we do without them???

My aunt and her six-week-old grand-daughter.
My cousin and one of his darling kids.

Maybe she is saving some for later?!?

My brothers ecstatic over their present of a Game cube. My mom: laughing at their delight.
My mom holding my 'cousin' (once-removed).
My grandpa holding my 'cousin,'. (As you can tell, she was adored by one and all!! :)


I hope everyone had a fun, safe, and blessed Christmas. I went a little crazy taking pictures (okay, very crazy :).

The four generations: My aunt, my grandpa, my cousin-once- removed, and my cousin.

My cousin, Jessica and me after the Christmas Eve candle-lighting service.

My cousin holding his daughter on Christmas morning.

Cousins!!! How cute, right?!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone! I will post some pictures later, when I get home (There are lots :) . guess that is all for now!! I'll post later, I hope everyone has a safe and merry Christmas (and happy holy-days)! By the way, pray for good weather tomorrow (the 26th), beacause all of our family is going to be travelling.

Go-cart ride and prayer request

Today, Scott (my younger brother) took me for a go-cart ride. It was so much fun! -- he surprised me by driving on the ice. I was a little reluctant, but it was SOoo much fun!!! Of course, we got a little cold, but I shouldn't complain -- we have been having very good weather lately. I can hardly believe it is December, or that I am in North Dakota -- it feels like spring!

Now for some not-so-great news, our calves really need prayer -- they are sick with pneumonia, etc., which is never good news!! :( Yesterday, my dad was getting some calves in the barn, and one of the calves decided to 'play' with him! Needless to say, he is a little sore today -- so pray for him, too.

Not much of anything

Sorry that I haven't posted anything in awhile, but it is so much harder to have an agenda when I am at home! Today, my mom and I made carmel corn -- it was so good! (Not that I had any :)

I found out my grades today -- and praise the Lord -- I passed everything (I was definitely worried about my economics).

Jesus, I want to praise Your name always;
I want to praise Your name all my living days.
When I am in Your presence, I feel like a newly-sprung flower.
When I am kneeling humbly, feel Your love and power.

I declare your glory and majesty.
I wish that I everyone in Your presence could be.
You are the Lord of Heaven, earth and beyond.
With You, I have formed an everlasting bond.

You, Jesus, are full of mercy and compassion.
You are with me when I feel like things are in a fast rotation.
When on my bed I pray,
I love you more and more each day.

I try more and more to read Your Word,
As in church and Sunday school I have heard.
After I am back from church,
With my Bible do I search.

Laughing it off!!

Today it got really slippery on the sidewalk. I forgot this and -- as a result -- I fell down, two times! At first, I didn't realize what happened and was wondering why everyone was suddenly so tall! Then, I realized that I had fallen down!!! However, I was able to laugh at myself and it actually helped to de-stress me a little bit! (I had an economics final today.) I never thought I would be happy about being un-graceful, but I guess it was all for the best!

Your hands made me and formed me
Psalm 119:73

Does anybody have an abnormality? For instance, one of my friends has 'webbed' toes. Usually people have either connected earlobes or unconnected--but I have one of each! Isn't it wonderful that God makes us so unique?

John 16:33

Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world!
John 16:33

It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

Nativity Set

I got these nativity pieces from my secret person at church. I thought they were just so cute! Mary and Joseph are actually made out of small pots!! For clothes, Mary and Joseph have small pieces of cloth. For hair, Mary has a 'springy-thing' from a pen. And Jesus is actually just a head!

Thank-you, Jesus

Jesus, your beauty is beyond compare.
You, alone, are worthy of my praise.
No one can comprehend Your greatness.
You extend Your hand of mercy to me.

When I run from You,
You still love me.
When I sin against You,
You readily forgive me.

You give me comfort
When I most need it.
You will provide for me
For all eternity.

When I stop to think about Your glory,
I stand speechless in amazement.
You have been so merciful to me
And I often forget to thank you.

So, thank-you, Jesus,
For all You have done for me.


Does anybody know of any good, preferaby Christian, colleges in the midwest (ND, SD, MN) that have photography as a major or minor? I need help! I have prayed about this and I have searched and 'googled'! Hopefully something will turn up, eventually! :)

The Nativity

I strongly recommend going to (or getting) "The Nativity." I wish more movies were like this!! It is an awesome movie! I think they made it as close to how it happened as possible. It shows the relationship between Mary and Joseph. I would say more, but I don't want to spoil it for you!
