Who am I today?!

I am a princess, my Father is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, there was not a king like Him, there isn’t one like Him and there will never be a king greater and powerful than He is.
He is the beginning and the end, Alpha and Omega, He has no creator for He has created every big and small thing on heaven and earth, and His imagination goes beyond any human comprehension. He is the inspiration behind any great book ever written, the stage manager of the world’s unexpected miracles. There aren’t enough pages to describe who He is and not even the most talented writer would be able to cover all His works in thousand of books.
He created and gave me the privileges that come with being the daughter of the King of Kings, and only wanted one thing from me, obedience (come on me obedient!!!). So I was living in this great palace surrounded by beautiful waterfalls, I was happy, thought that I wouldn’t need anything else and things will always remain the same.
One day I looked down and saw things that my Father never showed me, those things looked good and alluring, they were calling for me. Somewhere deep inside I knew they were wrong but still it seemed like the right kind of wrong. So of course I disobeyed because it was never on my mind to obey, I took all the privileges for granted, crossing the limit was never a concern for me.
So I went down and had fun, crossed the limits set by my Father, I played with fire and got burned. I learned that for each action eventually I will have to pay, that was a good thing to learn, responsibility is one of the things that adolescents are taught on their way to maturity. What made me sad was the unworthiness of the things I was experiencing and had to pay for. How can a thing that looks so good on the outside can eventually leave you empty and unimportant?
Not much time has passed and I woke up in darkness bounded by chains I couldn’t break. My Father was so mad that He didn’t want to see me again, I have fallen from His grace, alone without my family...the princess became a pauper by her own will and all for nothing.
The King sentenced me to death...saying that the punishment for sin is death. No matter how much, that decision broke His heart He had to be fair. The heavens weren’t protecting me all became so silent. Then my big Brother rose from His chair and looked down on me, His eyes got sad and full of tears and said: “She is so young and full of life, she learned this lesson as I am sure she will learn many others that might come, she is just learning how to live her life and I am sure she will teach many others the same. I know Your word can’t be withdrawn...what You said is accomplished. She has been punished enough by living the way she did. Let me be the One who feels Your wrath and disappointment, give Me the honor to break her chains.”
The King smiled and cried at the same time. “So it shall be!”
And so it happened as the King said, my Brother’s suffering was terrible, but His joy was greater when he freed me. He smiled and said: “Use your freedom much wiser this time, but never forget: each time you fall I will come to lift you up! Why?... Call me crazy but I love you so much that I can’t live a day without you. You were in my heart from the first day you were created... you have a lot of Me in you, just let it out and no star on earth and heaven will shine brighter than you.”
“Why don’t you take me home now,I miss everything...and my Father. I know now that there is no place like home. Please take me with you and let’s be a family like we used to.”
“That’s my greatest desire. But I can’t do it now...there are so many things that you have to do and learn here. I’ll be watching over you every hour, minute and second of your life. When you’ll think I am far away that’s when I am nearest to you.”
So this is me now, a pilgrim princess destined to teach others and learn from her mistakes, praying and hoping that when her Father decides to come and take her home she will be worthy to stay in His presence. Until I get to the destination there’s a JOURNEY that starts every day with a smile!
This is me for now…Who are you today????

Home is where your heart is

So this is me today...not waiting for a better tomorrow or a better year; now, at this very moment, here in my room with old and dusty furniture, and somehow that doesn't mattter anymore cuz what i know now is above all this material world. Is like i am finally accepting the idea that i have to grow up no matter how paintful it may be. Fortunatly i have a great Sculptor who knows what He's doing. Usually when i sing i focus upon myself, i imagine myself singing in front and people admiring my voice(probaly that's a hidden desire cuz i have a bad voice in many occasions), but tonight something, somehow changed. I couldn't focus too much on myself cuz my mind and heart were driven up to heaven where i saw myself in front of God's throne and all this people singing to Him, and i began one of those persons too. The feeling was amazing i could feel the Holy Spirit rejoycing in me. A thought crossed my mind from time to time "Is this what you want to be, a servent", and i said "yes, cuz that on the throne is my Creator, my Father". Cuz of that He deserves all my worship, all of me, and that's the greatest thing to serve Him. Knowing this my perspective of God and the world changed completly, what upset and disturbed me before became too meaningless compared to the glory of God that i am experiencing  here and that i m gonna to experince Home. Tonight i realised i wanna be there with all my being. Understanding that i didn' t come to Him for a better lifestyle or prestige destroyed all that i' ve belived so far. Today my heart longs for Home, i wanna be there badly, in His presence...and that won't remain a feeling that comes and goes but it will become a lifestyle.

Kirk Cameron and The Way of the Master

Kirk was not raised in a church-going home and describes himself as a devout atheist from a very young age. By the age of 14 he was so convinced there was no God that he laughed at those who thought there was. But that all changed one afternoon as he sat in his sports car pondering the first Gospel message he had ever heard.

Kirk continues to be actively involved in quality family entertainment and travels throughout the country, making the most of every opportunity to further the Gospel. He speaks in schools, churches and at community events. He is also a producer and host of The Way of the Master television series and radio program..

Kirk and his wife Chelsea have six children and live in southern California.

150,000 people die every 24 hours—most without the Savior. We are deeply concerned that so few Christians reach out to the lost. Statistics show that this is as low as 5%. One of the reasons for this is that many don’t feel equipped. As a ministry, our sole purpose is to inspire and equip Christians—to teach them how to share the gospel simply, effectively, biblically . . . the way Jesus did. “The Way of the Master” is non-denominational. We believe and preach that the Bible is the Word of God, and that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, crucified for the sin of the world, and that He rose again on the third day. We believe and teach that salvation is by grace, through faith, and not of works.

I was being foolish. An atheist can't stand behind their assertion that God doesn't exist. The stupidest thing I ever could have done was to reject His Truth. 
(Kirk Cameron)

I was experiencing all the success the entertainment industry has to offer, but I knew there had to be something more. It was sort of through that God prepared me to hear about His great plan. 
(Kirk Cameron)

I'm not perfect in my walk but I want to do the right thing. 
Kirk Cameron 

Our first priority is our kids. 
(Kirk Cameron) 

Put your nose into the Bible everyday. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian. 
(Kirk Cameron) 

Think of someone you know who's not saved but you may be afraid to share the Gospel with that person. I've found a way that's radically effective in training people to share the Gospel. 
(Kirk Cameron)

I came all this way for a reason. Today is the day of salvation. Trust Jesus to save you. Then be sincere as God knows a pretender. 
(Kirk Cameron) 

I could have anything I wanted and if I didn't have it, it was because I didn't want it. 
(Kirk Cameron) check it out it's worth it!

Jared Padalecki

Jared was chosen as one of People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive for 2007.

On his first day of driver's ed, Jared thought he was on a one-way street and started to drive on the left side of the road!

Jared is of Polish descent.

While filming the movie The Flight of the Phoenix Jared was in a minor car accident, afterwhich he looked around and thought he was dead. He told himself "I had better call production and tell them I'm dead." He apparently continued to think he was dead until someone passed by and asked him why he was standing on the side of the road.

Jared freaked when he was told they wanted to cover him with wax for real on the movie House Of Wax. Jared spent ages complaining to everyone who would listen that he didn't want to do it. Before eventually caving in and doing it anyway. Later he said that it wasn't as bad as he thought it would be!

Jared: (on “Supernatural” co-star Jensen Ackles) I have an older brother and a younger sister, and Jensen does as well, so he and I just kicked it off pretty quickly. He’s Texan, I’m Texan... You hear these horror stories about Desperate Housewives and stuff, where everybody’s arguing about trailers, but we just want to work hard and make sure our crew is happy.

Jared: A girl I'm attracted to, but there has to be more than just a physical attraction. I want a girl I can talk to and have fun doing random things with. Someone who I enjoy and who enjoys me. She has to have a good sense of humor and be willing to kid around.

Jared: (on not much of a partying type) I have a house, with two big plasma-screen TVs, two dogs, a grill, chessboard. I like to keep it low-key: invite friends over, order some Papa John's pizzas and Coors Light, play poker and ping-pong and chill. I'm pretty private.

Jared: People used to say I looked like Matt Damon. Now I get Brad Pitt. [Laughs] Yeah, I wish.

Jared: (about being called a hottie) You know since Jensen and I are so hot, it's very flattering and so cute and a girl will come up or a guy and say 'hey your so cute' you know blah blah blah whatever. Um it just (laughs) no, I'm here to film a TV show...... it's flattering, it's very flattering and it's fun to tease each other about that.

Jared: I'm so happy with my family, my career and my friends, and I'd like for them to be here forever, so I guess loss is what scares me the most. - On the thing that scares him the most.

Jared: (On love) Don't place expectations on someone. Enjoy the time you have together, and let it go where it goes.

Jared: My drama coach gave me a lot of self-confidence when I wasn't sure of myself.

Jensen Ackles' quotes :D

Jensen: (On the glitz and glamor of Hollywood) Yeah, I'm just not into all of that. I see all the red carpet paparazzi stuff and I'm like, "Really? Do I have to?!" I like to work and I know that's part of the job. But you kind of take it in stride.

Jensen: What I enjoy most is travelling to different places and meeting new people. For me, it's all about life experiences, and I'm very grateful that acting allows me so many interesting and fulfilling ones.

Jensen: There are just certain things that turn my head. It may be a girl's sense of humor, it may be her wit, or her belief system; it could be a lot of different things.

Jensen: (Any regrets about not going to college) Right now, no, because I feel as though I got a very interesting "life college." I moved out to this huge city all by myself. I had to grow up quickly. I learned a lot of things about the real world that my friends are just learning. Also, I started reading the dictionary and books about college education — I was teaching myself what my friends were learning in class. And it worked out — I would come home and talk to them about stuff that they hadn't even learned yet.

Jensen: (How he got into acting) My father is an actor, so he brought me into his agency when I was young. It wasn't something I wanted to do until high school, when I started taking theater and really liked it. Then an agent found me and wanted me to come out to Los Angeles and give it a shot. I gave myself six months [to find something], but it only took me like a week to get a job.

Jensen: I get nervous around girls [when I'm talking to them] for the first time. Once I'm in, I can take the reins and go. It's just the initial approach I'm really bad at.

Jensen: I'm not Mr. Debonair Suave. I'm just a regular boy who goofs around, pulls pranks, and makes jokes. That doesn't sound very hot to me.

Jensen: I was in preschool and a girl actually kissed me on the cheek. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what it meant, so I instantly grabbed her face and kissed her on the lips. And, then I got suspended.

Jensen: (On being recognized in public) It kind of catches me off guard when people come up to me... because when you're out shooting 15 hours a day for three to four months at a time, you don't see anybody from the outside world. You forget the stuff you're doing is actually being seen by millions of people.

Jensen: When I was in middle school, some of my so-called friends found a catalogue ad I did for Superman pajamas. They made as many copies as they could and pasted them up all over school

Jensen: I consider myself a non-denominational Christian. I grew up in a Bible church and still hold those beliefs very close to me.

Jensen: I love the smell of shampoo on a girl's hair. You can walk past someone and be like, 'Wow, you took a shower this morning, didn't you? Because you smell lovely!'

Jensen: (on what he likes in a woman) Me and my buddies say, 'Someone who gets it.' Gets sarcasm, gets high-brow humor. Ultimately, someone who you can pal around with and also be intimate with. Someone who can laugh at your jokes--it may sound cheesy, but someone who can be your best friend as well as your lover.

Jensen: (on gift-giving) The worst gift that I ever gave a girl was a suitcase for Christmas. As in, 'I can't think of anything to give you, but here's a new suitcase.' Afterward, I was like, 'What were you thinking, idiot?'

Jensen: (regarding Supernatural) I think just working with the show... learning what all this stuff means... like cold spots or certain electromagnetic waves or the crackling noises, the dimming lights and stuff like that that we do on a daily basis. This is stuff that is researched by the writers so now, when you're in a hotel room and it gets really cold and the lights start flickering it's like, "Alrighty! Where's my salt gun when I need it?"

Nobody's home

Is like she's talking to  me, I couldn't  have said it better myself. This song is like a mind reader:

I couldn't tell you why she felt that way,
She felt it everyday.
And I couldn't help her,
I just watched her make the same mistakes again.

What's wrong, what's wrong now?
Too many, too many problems.
Don't know where she belongs, where she belongs.

She wants to go home, but nobody's home.
That's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

Open your eyes and look outside, find the reasons why.
You've been rejected, and now you can't find what you left behind.

Be strong, be strong now.
Too many, too many problems.
Don't know where she belongs, where she belongs.

She wants to go home, but nobody's home.
That's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

Her feelings she hides.
Her dreams she can't find.
She's losing her mind.
She's fallen behind.
She can't find her place.
She's losing her faith.
She's fallen from grace.
She's all over the place.

She wants to go home, but nobody's home.
That's where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

She's lost inside, lost inside...oh oh...
She's lost inside, lost inside...oh oh...
