Ok, well, last night I studied for a math test for the very first time in my life.  The math test is today... in about 15 minutes.... am I ready to leave? Nope. I'm stuck on my computer!! 

I studied with my friends, Stefanie, Betsy, and Kalyn :)  Let's hope it paid of ladies!!!!  I think we can manage not to fail yes?  Unless we totally go completely blank like I know Betsy mentioned that she did on these tests, and I do the same. UGH UGH UGH!!!  Well, one good thing about this... actually two, is that its only a semester class, ANDDDD if we fail, we have FOUR years to make it up!!! HAHHAHHA.... thats depressing...

OK!! Wish us luck!! I'll post later how we THINK we did, and then later than that, how we REALLY did, which as everyone knows, is always COMPLETELY different than what we think. Unless we didn't answer any questions..... lol

Britney Spears

So... I haven't told many people about this. Actually, I only recently said it aloud in my College Experience class.  We had an assignment to make a Bucket List for our lives.  I have always wanted to make one so I actually had FUN with homework!! lol. Anyway, so on my Bucket List, the very last item on the paper, I wrote down, "Witness to Britney Spears".

Now, I am not sure when my desire to witness to her started.  I know it was when I was wayy younger, probably when I heard her songs on my bus when I was in 2nd grade. Maybe sometime after that.  I had always imagined sitting down with her on a talk show, or some where personal and telling her how much Jesus loves her no matter what she has ever done, because it is SO true.  I pray that God gives me the opportunity, or somehow puts someone in her life that won't use her, but tell her about the One who made her, loves her, and will NEVER give up on her like so many others have.

Now, in my College Experience class, while I was reading my list out loud, when I came to the last one, my teacher was like "WHAATTT?? OMG! I have to tell you something after class!"
So, after class I went up to her and she proceeded to tell me that I had the same exact passion as she did!! I was pretty shocked to hear someone shared my simultaneous love of Britney and my concern for her soul.  It is amazing to know that someone shares such a passion as something like that with me :)

But on the other hand, its sad that not so many people are public about their concern for the souls of so many of the celebrities out there who are leading lives that are simply disastrous to themselves and their well-being....  that they are consumed with alcohol, greed, fame, vanity, and simply the loss of their true identities among all the things that fans and agents want them to be....

Can someone tell me how this:

 And this:
 Started out as this?:
I'll tell you.... sin.  Not exactly pure or simple, but you know what I mean.  The world thirsts for vulgarity. Whether they label it as that or not, they still do.  Sex, sex, sex.  Money, money, money. Exploitation, desperation, search for satisfaction.  So many things lead to those points... the points where Britney Spears and so many other millions of people find themselves now.

We all start out with souls that look pure and innocent and un-compromised.  Then, as we grow, we become greedy.  We want anything and everything that will satisfy us, or at least what we THINK will satisfy us...

I dont know how to live without your love
I was born to make you happy
Cause you're the only one within my heart
I was born to make you happy
Always and forever
you and me
Thats the way our life should be
I dont know how to live without your love
I was born to make you happy

 This song is from Britney's first album Baby One More Time.  It is the chorus to the song Born to Make You Happy.  So you see, even from the very earliest stages of her career, Britney's mindset was configured.  For some reason, the world thinks that celebrities were born to make us happy, when in reality, they are people themselves. GASP. I know right???  Well, they are.  Their true value doesn't depend on how good they sing, act, or play a sport or instrument.  Their true value lies in Jesus Christ.  And their goal in life should be to make Christ happy.  Not us. We are not the ones that should be made happy.  What right do we have to completely take over someone's life like how people have taken over Britney's?  We don't have any right.

So, I pray right now, Jesus, I ask you, please.  Bless Britney with your love. Show her everything that you are.  Provide for her someone that will actually tell her the Truth about herself, and about You.  I know that under all of her family problems, under every drop of make-up, every song lyric, there is still that innocent girl crying out for someone to love her for who she is inside, and not for what she does or who she tries to be for everyone else.  Lord, I just pray that you will protect her from herself.  Show her that what she is doing is not right, it isn't what she was made for. Let those persons who you will provide for her, to be strong, because she will be hard-pressed to turn away from her lifestyle after living like that for so long.  Give her strength to fight her fears and for her soul to see You.  In Your awesome name I pray :)
