10 Places where the Bible talks About Nature

Guys I am so so sorry about last week. It was just super busy.
I had part of my part of my post done but it was so stressful because I was trying to do a post about Evolution and I ended up forgetting to do the whole thing. I'm really sorry. DX
I decided not to do the Evolution post at all because I couldn't think of the words to put into the keyboard. 
A thanks to Lost, Swirl and Sarah, who encouraged me though I really appreciated it! ^.^
Also sorry if my post haven't been super interesting
For today I thought with Easter, Spring. and all that I'd post Bible verses that talk about nature! 

1.

Job 12:7-10

7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; 8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?


10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

2.
Psalm 96: 11-12

11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. 
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.



3.

Job 37: 15-16

15 Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? 
16 Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge?



4.

Psalm 104:24-25

24 How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. 
25 There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.




5.

Isaiah 43:20

20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,



6.


Psalm 147:8
Who covers the heaven with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth, who makes grass to grow upon the mountains.


7.
Psalm 8:3-4
When I look at your heavens the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful in him, and the son of man that you care for him?



8.


Psalm 146: 
Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all deps, fire and hail, snow and mist, stormy wind fulfilling his word!

9.
Psalm 104:14 
He causes the grass to grow for the cattle and herb for the service of man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth



10. (and to top it off) 

Psalm 89:11

The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all it contains, You have founded them.



And there you go! 

All of those are so relaxing to read. Don't you think?

Scripture Egg Hunt!

Helloooo, guys!

Today I had absolutely no idea what to do for a post today. But while I was on Animal Jam, my friend Violet86271, gave me the idea to do an egg hunt on my blog, but incorporate scriptures in the game! I thought that was a really good idea, so I decided I would do that. ^.^

Here's how this will work,

Throughout AJFC, are five pictures, each with a different color egg on it. When you click on the egg, it will lead you to a different page, with a Scripture on it, that has to do with the Easter story. Once you find all the eggs that lead to Scriptures, you'll have to put the Scriptures together in the order they're supposed to go. Then, comment down below the order the Scriptures go in, and whoever gets the correct order first, gets a free Easter signature! The signature will have a cross on it, a Bible verse of your choice, and your username on it. If you don't have a blog, I can make it into a background you can use for your computer. ^.^

---

The colors of the eggs are,

Red
Green
Yellow
Pink
Orange

I know it might seem like eggs have nothing to do with Easter, but actually it's a very old tradition that people would do, to remember Jesus' crucifixion. Wikipedia says,

The Christian custom of Easter eggs, specifically, started among the early Christians of Mesopotamia, who stained eggs with red colouring "in memory of the blood of Christ, shed at His crucifixion"

Here's a picture of one of the red eggs, from the Saint Kosmas Aitolos Greek Orthodox Monastery.


I had no idea coloring eggs had anything to do with any Christian Easter traditions! I think this is super cool. This year I'll have to dye some eggs completely red. XD

This contest will last from today, March 29th 2018, until Easter, April 1st 2018.

---

I hope you guys have fun with this! ^.^

Here's todays Bible verse!

Romans 5:8

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus on the Way to Egypt, Part 2! (In Which I Have Failed to Pick a Contest Winner.)

Hello guys!

Karalee here, and I...

I...

I JUST COULDN'T PICK!! 😩

To everyone who submitted a quote to the little caption-the-picture contest I had going last week, I'm sorry! I felt like they were all equally great, and I just couldn't seem to choose one over the other....

You Guys: But that's the POINT of a contest!

Me: 😢



But at least now you can laugh at my inaccurate pyramids! 😝 I did.

(Gotta say, though, I loooooove Procreate's QuickLine feature. Makes pyramids easier. Perhaps I should draw more at some point in the future.)



Here's the finished version of Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus on the way to Egypt! "Now In COLOR!"







I hope you guys like it!



If there's one thing I could change about this picture, it would be to up the contrast between Baby Jesus and the camel. He gets a little lost in there, visually.

If there's one thing I'd keep no matter what, it's the camel's expression -- it's asymmetrical and "real"-ish, and I like how funny it seems, even though the camel is clearly disgruntled at its' ear's new function as a toy.



Well, that's all for this week! See you next time! *waves* πŸ˜€

Drop me a prompt in the comments if there's another scene you would like to see in The Bible From A Camel's Point Of View!



PEACE!
LOVE!
NINJAAAAAAAS!

When Love Runs Red

Helloooooo everyone! Wow, I can't believe that there's just one more week left the end of the first #FocusingOnGod month, and just one more week until Easter. This year has been flying! o.O

Do you guys have any Easter traditions? Every year my mom makes me an Easter basket, and we normally have family over. This year for Easter dinner, I'm pretty sure we're just doing pre-made lasagna, salad, and bread. XDD For desert I'm going to be making homemade hot cross buns though.

Anywho, let's get going with todays post!

Last year for Easter, I shared a really great poem that Lostfairy's sister, Tracey Dyck wrote! I decided I would do that again this year too. If you would like to view the post this poem is in on Tracey's blog, you can click here.

The poem is called 'When Love Runs Red'.

[source]

When Love Runs Red
by Tracey Dyck

When Love comes down to authored world—
Conceived within a virgin girl,
Laid to rest in bed of straw—
Come to satisfy the law . . .

When Love walks with the least of these
And answers blind men’s searching pleas;
Touches lepers, calls forth the dead,
And finds no place to rest His head . . .

When Love endures the scoffers’ words,
The hatred by His enemies stirred;
And bows to take a crown of thorns,
The cross upon His shoulders borne . . .

When Love climbs up that hill of death
And cries forgiveness with final breath—
When wrath of God on Him does fly
And night engulfs the weeping sky . . .

When Love runs red down rugged beams
And wrongs are washed by scarlet streams,
When blackest sinner becomes white,
Declared by God to be made right . . .

How can our hearts not drown in this?
This flood of grace, redemption’s kiss?
How can we not succumb to Him?
In light of this, all else grows dim.

When Love emerges from the grave,
Makes children of the serpent’s slaves,
The victory won, the chasm spanned,
In glorious light we Beloved stand.


---

I literally get goosebumps every time I read it. XD It's such a great poem about the life and resurrection of Jesus.

Stay tuned on Thursday and Sunday for more Easter related posts! ^.^

Here's todays Bible verse!

John 12:13 NIV

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
"Hosanna!"
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the king of Israel!"

-

Fitting Bible verse for today, since today is Palm Sunday! 😊

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

I'll Love You... When/If/Then

Hi, guys! I'm so sorry I never posted on Sunday! I was just so tired, I couldn't even focus on my post at all. XD

Today's post is titled, "I'll Love You... When/If/Then"! Let's get started.

---


Sometimes it seems like people who are rude, people who have lots of differences from us, who believe different things than us, are really hard to love. When they do so much to us, it seems like it's impossible to forgive those people, and to love them. We just determine that when, or if they change, then we'll forgive them and love them. But, that's not the right attitude to have. Matthew 5:43-45 says,

-

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and unrighteous.

-

God says that we should love our enemies, and even pray for them. God loves them, so we should too. God never puts up walls that say, I'll love you when... I'll love you if... I'll love you then... He loves us just how we are, and he loves our enemies just how they are.

Of course, God hates rudeness, and people splitting apart. But God still loves them. Why else would Jesus die from them, like we see in John 3:16?

-

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

-

Since God loves us that much, he can certainly help us through a broken relationship, and help us get the attitude that we'll love people no matter what. No matter what they've done to us, no matter who they are, no matter what they believe.

Of course, this doesn't mean I'm advising you to hang around people that treat you wrongly. We need to just be able to love them, and pray for them. Praying that they will change their ways while we love them, but not praying that they'll change their ways so we can love them.

Who's one person in your life that you need to start loving and forgiving? You don't have to comment it, just think about it, and start praying to God about it. ^.^

Taking Fairy Tales in a Christian Perspective-Cinderella


Hey Jammers! SPRING IS FINALLY HERE *pumps fist* It's slowly getting warmer slowwwwwwwly :/ 


It's time for another Taking Fairy Tales in a Christian Perspective-Cinderella!
A story of romance, love, (THOSE ARE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME THING!!!!!!!!!) and bravery!  Right?.. 


I haven't actually read the real real version of Cinderella, except a few little kid books that were completely based off the movie, the cartoon was just.. very... cringy. The live action was actually super good XD BUT ANYWAYS
We are not here to talk about movies, we are here to talk about cheescake?  CINDERELLA.
*points* Music?
Oh. No music?   *mice start to sing the Cinderella song* CINDERELLY CINDERLLY-dont know how to spell that  :)  BE QUIET!!! *throws mice to whatever the cats name is*
Okay
lets finally do it.
 I am very sorry for the lack of details, I kind of have to rush.


Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Cinderella. When her mother died, her father remarried a woman whose husband recently died, she had two daughters Cheese and cake  Shortly after her  fathers death, Cinderella's Stepmother started treating her poorly, her bedroom became the cold attic, and sometimes she went down to the fire and lay next to the cinders.  Her stepmother treated her like a servant, while her daughters and stepmother went to Mcdonalds a lot. Cinderella worked almost all day, but always with a smile on her face,  her Stepfamily barely lifted a finger.  One day, a messenger arrived with invitations to the ball, where the Prince Kai  would choose his bride, the Stepmother ordered 3 dresses probably from Mcdonalds because all fairy tale people go, why don't they go somewhere else like Olive Garden orrr I can't think of any restaurant besides Mcdonalds   When Cinderella asked "What about me?"  Her Stepmother laughed and replied, "If you get all your chores done." Which of course, she would just make more and more chores. The day of the ball,  Cinderella went up in the attic and found her mother's old wedding dress,  it was not nearly as fancy as her stepfamily's dresses, she sewed it up, all nice and tidy, and then took some cast away ribbion's from her stepsisters and sewed those onto the dress. When they were about to go to the ball, Cinderella came downstairs where her stepsisters and mother were, when they saw she had taken the ribbions (Heyy they threw them out) aaand ripped apart her dress. Then they left for the ball, leaving Cinderella sobbing. She went out into the garden, where her fairy god mother came to her and gave her stuff to go the ball, (horses, a new dress, carriage etc too lazyyy XD)And told her that when the clock struck midnight the spell would be broken. So she went to the ball, where she met the prince, love at first sight. realistic  righttt?  And they danced, suddenly the clock started striking, she ran towards the stairs, one of her glass slippers fell off. The prince found it and ordered to try it on every maiden in the land, until he finally found her. They lived happily ever after. 

Moral:  God will send his angels (the godmother, in this story,) to help us, and he will never ever stop looking for us, and will do everything he can do help and/or find us.


Have a good day! Peace <3 ninjas!

Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus on the Way to Egypt, Part 1! (In Which I Make a Caption This Drawing Contest.)

Hello, Jammers!

It's Karalee!



Can't stay long, but before I have to vamoose, I'm going to give you...

...this!







While I was drawing this, I wondered if it was even plausible, because the Bible says that Jesus never-ever did anything wrong even as a baby... so would he have used a camel's ear was a toy? (Ouch!)

Then I wondered, when babies do things like chewing up something important or mistaking ears for toys, is it wrong? ...'Course not! They're babies!

Maybe it's just me, but I think Jesus did normal baby stuff when he was tiny. (Joseph's probably just glad there's another target besides his beard now.)



Contest In The Comments time!

Caption this drawing -- it needs to be something Mary would be saying! The winner will get their caption written into the drawing in a speech bubble! (Maybe it'll cover up my silly inaccurate excuses for pyramids. They're not even supposed to be IN Egypt yet!)



Welp, gotta run now! See y'all next time! *waves*

'Til then --



PEACE!
LOVE!
NINJAAAAAAAS!

Unfortunately, this year I will not be able to give an in-Animal Jam prize to the story contest winner, since having out-of-game contests, and giving in-game prizes is against the rules in Animal Jam now I think.

But, me and my mom came up with a great idea for a blog related prize!

If an author on my blog wins, they get five signatures made by me, and their story will be featured on AJFC! And if someone outside of the AJFC authors winsthey get to write a special one time guest post and their story will be featured on AJFC!

Pretty cool prize, huh?

If someone outside of the AJFC authors wins, and gets to write a guest post, they must abide by the rules of AJFC, and before they post it, I'll have to look it over, just to make sure everything is okay, and they followed the rules.

Good luck to everyone! I can't wait to read your Christian stories!

Here's a graphic you can put on your blog, or your Google+ to spread the word!

Finding Issac's Future Wife, Part 2! (In Which I Am Very Late and VERY SORRY! D: )

Hey guys!

Karalee here, and yes I know it's Wednesday I am so so so soooooooo sorryyyyyyyyyyy! 😭 I was all set to draw/write my post while I did laundry last night, but I was so tired that I fell asleep on the couch before making it!

The drawing is all done now, and soon the post will be as well!



This is the finished version of my post from last week, where the (unnamed) servant of Abraham realizes that Rebekah is the woman he's meant to bring back for Issac from the town of Nahor! (Hint: He's elated.)

You can find the full background (and some humorous commentary on what the camels are thinking) in that post -- I'm not going to put them in this one because that text seems to be causing some kind of bizarre font glitch.

Here's the finished and colored version! 😁 Enjoy!







Rebekah's water jug still looks like a decorative vase, but Camel 8 looks less like a pig, and Mister Unnamed Servant of Abraham is no longer creepy! (To be truly accurate to the source verses, all the camels should be loaded up with "all kinds of good things from [Abraham]", but I'm afraid there's only so much I can fit in a chibi picture.)



That's it for this week! Next Tuesday, get ready for another installment of my new series, "The Bible From a Camel's Point of View"!

Seeya later! *waves* πŸ˜€ Bye!



PEACE!
LOVE!

Taking Fairy Tales(and a fable) in a Christian Perspective-Little Red Riding Hood And The Three Little Pigs

 Hello Jammers! Hope you are having a fantastic day!


Recently, I have been reading the Lunar Chronicles, which is basically a series with retold fairy tales and I was also thinking about what to post, anyways lets get into it XD


 Let's start with Little Red Riding Hood:

Once upon a time, there lived a little girl named Red Riding Hood, so named because she always wore her red cloak that her grandmother made for her.

One day Little Red Riding Hood set out with a basket of  food that her mom prepared to go to her grandmother's house, on the way she met a big big big big big bad bad bad bad he was still recovering from the whole three little pigs thing, ya know? 


wolf, who asked her where she was going. She replied "TO GRANDMA'S HOUSE I GO!" and  the wolf said "Ok." and went off to a path with a sign that said "To Grandma's House You Go" but this was not the path Little Red Riding Hood was on, she was going through the woods, so Big Bad Wolf called his Chauffeur and sped in his convertible to Grandma's cottage. And then, he locked grandma in the closet, and grabbed an extra night gown and lay in her bed, waiting for Little Red Riding Hood to come in.
When Little Red Riding Hood came in, and 'Granny Wolf' greeted her,  she put down the basket of food next to the bed, and said, "What a deep voice you have!" SO ROOD "The better to greet you with!" "Goodness, what big eyes you have!" "All the better to see you with!" "And what big hands you have!" "The better to hug you with." replied 'Granny Wolf'. "What a big mouth you have!" "The better to eat you with!" exclaimed 'Now-Fully-Wolf-Wolf" Little Red Riding Hood cried out and screamed and ran into the next room, trying to keep the wolf out, a woodcutter heard the commotion and came running with his axe, and killed the filthy wolf, then discovered her grandmother in the closet.
They lived happily ever after.

You guys are probably wondering: "So.. how does this relate to Christianity?" Well, the wolf, being satan, and Little Red Riding hood being us, and the woodcutter being God.

When we meet the wolf/satan on the path, we do not suspect anything. And we arrive, we point out something different about our 'loved one' and then the wolf preys on us. We run, praying to God, our cries are heard and he rescues us. Beating back the wolf and defeating it.

The moral? If we cry out to God he will help us, even if He doesn't answer it in the way we hoped/imagined. He WILL get  us out, one way or another.

Psalm 34-17-19

The righteous cry, and the LORD hears and delivers them out of their troubles.




And next, a fable in fact. The Three Little Pigs
This may sound even more ridiculous, but just roll with me.

There once lived Three Little Pigs (lets call them Jeff, Bill, and Bob.)
They set out to explore the world. Bob makes his house out of straw, Bill made his out of sticks, and Jeff made his out of bricks. Then out of the woods (DUN DUN DUNNN) THE BIG BAD WOLF! *gasp* He skipped over to Bob's house, and knocked (HE WAS EAGER FOR BACON!!) and said "LITTLE PIG LITTLE PIG LET ME COME IN!" Bob shivered in the corner and replied "NOT BY THE HAIR OF MY CHINNY CHIN CHIN!"

"Then I'll huff and puff and BLOWWWW your house down!" 🎢And the house came tumbling down🎢 Bob quickly ran over to Bill's house, the wolf decided to go to Mcdonalds and take a nap because he was exhausted. The next day he went over to Bill's house and said "Little pig, little pig! Let me come in!" "NOT BY THE HAIR OF OUR CHINNY CHIN CHINS" shouted Bob and Bill together. "Then I'll huff and I'll puff! And BLOWW the house down! And then the house blew down! Bob and Bill ran away to Jeff's brick house. Again, the Big Bad Wolf knocked on the door, and said "Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in!" "Not by the hair of our  chinny chin chin!" "Then I'll huff, and puff ad BLOWWW your house down!"
So the wolf huffed and puffed, but the house did not fall down. After he went to Mcdonalds to get his strength back he knocked again.
"If you will not let me in, then I will climb through the chimney and come in." So he climbed up and slipped  through the chimney, unaware that Jeff had put a boiling pot of soup under it. The wolf howled in pain, and ran away. Never to return.

Let us say Bob and his hay are you and the hay is just what you can manage lazily. The devil comes and knocks down your foundation (or lack of them). Bill is your friend(s), the sticks being money. (Which is easily burnt and taken away.) You run to them for protection, but it turns out they have the same foundation as you pretty-much nothing. And the devil knocks down that too. Finally, finally, you run to Jeff, aka, God. And he foils the devils plan to quite literally in fact cook you, and instead, he gets 'cooked' instead. 

Moral: Friends, ourselves, money,  etc will NEVER be enough to save us. No matter how much our friends love us, only GOD can save us from the devil. 

2nd Thessalonians 3:3 

But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.


Comment call: What do you think of this post? Should I do more like it? (If so, I will probably do Cinderella, perhaps Snow White if I can think of something for those) 

Have a great day!  

-Sarah 

P.S Pi Day on AJ!

Christian Quotes!

Hey guys!

I’m sorry this post is later than normal! We were at my aunts house last night, so I didn’t have time to preschedule a blog post. At the moment I’m writing this post on my moms phone, at our friends house. XD Long story short, but both going to my aunts house, and our friends house now we’re super spontaneous.

Anywho! Lately, my mind has been completely blank on what to post about. So I just decided to do a post similar to what Sarah did on Wednesday. I would write a more inspirational post like I normally do, but this weekend I’ve just been so stressed out. Sorry about that!

Let’s get started with today’s post!

———

First, let’s start off with a little joke..



I agree completely.
Especially today..
I had to get up at 6 AM, which really would of been 5 AM because of the time change
Criiiiiiii


Ah, I love this song! ^.^


Such an amazing song, that has really been a huge encouragement to me.


It’s really terrible when Christians argue and fight over silly things. It really gives us a bad name. We should always show the world what we’re for, which is Jesus.


Another line from the song I previously did a blog post on, called Even Then!

Here’s today’s Bible verse, in the form of an image, just because it’s easier to do on an iPhone. XDD


Yep, the golden rule actually comes from the Bible!

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

I've been listening to some CD's and watching some history DVD's that have some interesting facts about the USA I thought I'd be cool to list them all here today so here they are.

1. On the top part of the Liberty Bell is the verse Leviticus 25:10. 
(And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee to you; and you shall return every man to his possession, and you shall return every man to his family.)
I Personaly thing this is an awesome verse for a Country :D 
2. The city Philadelphia was actually named after the city Philadelphia mentioned in Revelations
3. In Apollo 8 the astronauts read the first 10 verses of Genius back to "Huston" 
4. (Recent) President Trump started Bible studies in the White House! 

That's all I can think of at the moment if I think of more I'll put it in another post!

1 Timothy 4:12

Hey guys!

Welcome to theeeeee-
I don't even know anymore. *Looks*

...

*Counts*

...Seeeeventh post in our #FocusingOnGod month!

Today's verse is going to be based off of 1 Timothy 4:12! It's a really great verse, that should speak to a lot of us today. 

Let's get started!

---


I really have just gotten used to being treated like a four year old in everything related to church. No one at church has ever acted like they looked at me as a young lady, or anybody special, really. No one talks to me.

I've gotten used to this, and pretty much just convinced myself that I am just some little kid, and I won't be able to do anything significant until I'm older.

For some reason, everyone at church seems to treat me like this. This one lady at church always talks in a kiddish voice to me, and says, "Awh!! Sweet girl!"

Yeah, it's pretty funny, but it's just really annoying when pretty much everyone treats you this way.

Honestly, I'm still not sure how to get people to not do this to me. It really just discourages me.

But for everyone near my age (middle/high school), I think we all go through this thing where we think that we're too young to do anything. We'll just have to wait until we're older. But in God's eyes, that's not true. And we shouldn't let people say that's true.

But the thing is, I was wondering what I could do at my age, that would somehow impact people, and glorify God. That's when I'm pretty sure I got more serious about Christian music.

Currently I'm praying about finding someone who could give me guitar lessons, but at the moment I'm just enjoying learning about Christian music itself.

Playing music just seems like a career you would have when you're an adult, but I realized that almost every Christian artist got their start when they we're young. I once read that Phil Wickham, a Christian artist, started leading worship at church when he was twelve years old.

That's something I would love to ask him. Just how did his church react to something like that? Someone who was probably a little kid in the eyes of a lot of people, was up on stage leading worship.

This should be an encouragement for all of us, to dream a little bigger, and chase after the passions that God has given us. It's never too early to start chasing after them now, and praying for your future.

1 Timothy 4:12 says,

-

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

-

Even when you start chasing after your passions, or praying about your future, don't let anyone look down on you. If whatever your passion is, is from God, you're doing the right thing, and nobody has the right to look down on you, or tell you that you can't do it. Instead, set an example for them in the way you talk, the way you love, the way you live, and in everything you do.

And Philippians 4:13 says,

-

I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

-

With God, anything is possible, and we have to believe that.

Chasing after your passions that God has given you might seem risky, and it might be scary to see what people will say, but if we're doing this for God, it will all be worth it in the end. People might say we're too young, we're not good enough, we'll never be able to do it, but those are all lies from the enemy. He just wants us to think that so God won't get the glory in His plans for us.

So, chase after your passions. Do what God wants you to do. It will all be worth it in the end.
