Promise Ring.

So yesterday, after a long time of praying about getting a promise ring the word came up in a conversation. My friend has been wanting one but was afraid to ask her mom so she brought the conversation about promise rings to my mom. I was like yes this should be a perfect time to see if my mom would let me get one. I have wanted one for the past couple of most to signify that I was pure and I wasn’t planning on changing that until marriage.

So I am proud to say that on Thursday June 29 2010 I got a promise ring. (:

My friend, Kendra and I were talking about going to the Christian store in Jonesville together just to look at them. And around four we went with her grandma to Heavenly Treasures and they had them. They only had one kind of ring but I was fine with the way it was. It wasn’t too big and it wasn’t too little it was just right. I really like what the ring says on it. It kind of explains what it is so I don’t have to come up with words to tell other people.

The ring says.

Today, I promise I will wait agreeing to stay pure.

Because I know that God loves me and his blessing is in store.

The ring is round and kind of curved in a way it looks bent but its meant to be like that. The ring also came with a book mark that has a pledge type thing that says the same thing as the ring, and you sign it and put the date on the back and on the front it reads:

Because I know

There are some things

That happen only once

And value my own purity;

I’m choosing abstinence.

My body is God’s

Temple and I want

To keep it pure.

A precious gift I’m giving to

The one I’m waiting for.

So I will be reminded

Every time I wear

This token.

A three-strand chord

Entwined in love

Is never quickly broken

Because I trust

That Jesus has

A special love for me.

I’m choose to love

And honor him

By waiting patiently.

I think that really represents the ring very well. And I don’t care what other people think about the ring I’m proud to wear it no matter what.

You never really know how much your life changes when your friends are not around.  All the time we spend fighting with one another we should be loving all the time we have with them. Because when your young you should take advantage of that. Once we finish high school our best friends will be going all over the world to different collages. We may not get to see them as often so instead of wasting our time fighting I’d rather spend it making memories.

Friendship is such a wonderful thing. It takes up some of your life but in a good way. Be blessed with who’s in your life. My best friends are amazing I don’t know what I’d do without them. I’ve gone through times where drama got in between one of the best friendships I’ve ever had and tore us apart for awhile. I was not the same; it was like a part of me was missing. Now I realize that, that is what true friendship is. Wanting to be with one another, making each other smile, making each other laugh, bringing us up when we are down, and just loving us for who we are.

I can defiantly say that God has blessed me with many wonderful people that have walked into my life. I couldn’t ask for more better friends. Even though my friends don’t complete my life that’s fine with me because they can’t. Only God can complete your life.

I miss being in public school. I know your think what? In home schooling you have a lot of free time. Yea that’s true but you don’t get to see your friends hardly. I may not like all the work in school but I wish I could have finished my 7th grade year without and medical problems. I’m kind of glad to be going back my 8th grade year. I think that being out of school kind of helped me grow in a way. Showing me how important school is. Education is very important in life and I know understand that. I am going to go into my 8th grade year trying to do as hard as possible to get good grades. Just seeing all the signatures in my yearbook and everybody saying they missed me really means something. Because I didn’t know so many people would miss me or say that the year has not been the same without me. I’m just blessed to have those kind of people who care about me and enjoy seeing me everyday. I am truly blessed. 😀

Boys. This word passes through my mind many times in one day. Throwing names around with images attached. Some say “I’m cute but I’m a jerk.” and “I may be a jock but I’m actually a gentlemen” or “Yeah I’m a jock and yeah I may be a jerk like 99% of the time but so what I’m hot.”  And on a rare time you find names with pictures attached saying “I’m a gentlemen and yeah I have times where I bring out the worst in me but that’s not all the time. I’m a Christian and I love God.” I know for sure that, that kind of guy is the right one for me. A gentlemen, a guy who is not cocky saying he’s the “hot stuff”, and is willing to include that he is a Christian and that he loves God when you first meet. I want a guy who is not afraid to love the Lord. I know that the one thing I want people to know about me is that I, Erin Leigh Fritz, loves the Lord with all her heart. And the rest should just come to them. I don’t care what else they think of me I just want them to know that I love the Lord and the rest shouldn’t matter. Not all Christians act like they should. Some go around through words out like “I love the Lord” and “I’m a Christian” but what they do and say is not how God would want them to be like. Yes, God does still love you no matter what but that is not how He wants it to be like. I’m ashamed by some of the people in my grade; the ones I grew up with in school. Some girls AND guys think that they must be with someone to make them happy, popular, the man, complete. To them I just want to say you’re wrong; God is the only one who can complete you, popularity doesn’t matter in heaven, there is other things in life that can make you happy when you are young beside men/women, and to you guys how dare you get a certain girl who is the “hottie” and treat her like you care when all you want with her is to be popular and try to “get some.” And at our age you shouldn’t be thinking that kind of stuff. I know what some of you guys think and it’s disgusting. If you tell me I don’t know what I am talking about then you better talk to some of your “boys” because they talk a little too loud in a classroom. I know for a fact that there will be another “hottie” in about a month; that is how it works. At least in the middle school the new “hottie” flies around like all the math assignment’s Mrs. Lowe gives you guys. I really think if half of your parents knew what the guys are thinking about they’re daughters they would be dead. And the guys parents would be ashamed; especially ones I know very well. See I’ve known this boy since we were young and I am disappointed in the way he grew up.  Now, he may not care what I have to say but he used to be a gentlemen until it became uncool to be nice to girls unless they weren’t around their gang”. I just don’t get it. Even this boys voice changes when he’s not around them. I feel bad for him; he tries to look tough around his “gang” when really all he is doing is trying to protect his “image” when all he really is doing is wreaking friendships and his true self. Some boys are not what they truly are behind the scenes. Enough said….

Music. My life would be nothing without the sound of music. Without the pure voices of millions of musicians. My world would be broken without words to fill a page making my soul come alive. Music makes me feel free. When I sing I feel like nothing else in this world matters. When my voice hits the last note in a song my fears come back. Music takes me to another planet. It’s hard to believe that such a thing can make a person feel alive. Without music the world would be lonely. Our souls would be lost without the beats that carry along in a song. Music is the voice of those in pain. Those in need of a little hope. And the ones in love. Music. Lives would be torn apart without a little thing called music.

Public School.

Public school is a nightmare. The kids in public school are NOT there for the education they are there for friends, drama, trouble and more. When you are there they throw cuss word for cuss word around like it is nothing. Kids make fun of others for mental issues; it’s just wrong. If you ever asked them if they did they would lie and say they didn’t. Public school kids lie like there is no tomorrow. Most kids are immature no matter how old they get. In school you can find the really nice kids. They’re some of the nicest and the meanest people you will ever meet in public school. If you miss a day of school people are all over wanting to know your business. You can’t miss a day without somebody knowing. If you miss a lot of school they think you are skipping. I would know because I was one of those kids who got sick and was out for a while and nobody believed I was really sick. They would be like “You are skipping I just know it.” It’s unfair for the kids who are really sick to get punished with words like “liar” and “faker”.

Yeah I do have a sickness just most don’t believe it. When I go back to public school next year it is going to be a living nightmare. The drama of public school is atrocious. The name calling is stupid and immature but they still do it. Every year the words get worse. I don’t see  how people can live there lives going to school a being flat out mean. I think I am crossing the line here and saying all the things people are afraid to say. I could care less about what I am saying about how people treat others because this needs to be said. When some people walk through the halls they act like the own the whole place. Throwing names from one kid to another. I will not name any names because then I would be rude. There is just certain people who don’t know  manners. And I know that some of you could name, names if you’re in my grade.

People say they are Christians but what they do isn’t showing the Christian side of them. I’m not saying they should be perfect but really nobody is. They just don’t need to put others down. Most act that way because they were abused as a child or they’ve grown up in a bad environment or even hung out with the wrong people who act that way. I just don’t see why people call themselves Christians if they don’t show it in front of people. I know in school you can’t really express it but you can silently. Like not putting people down. Not bullying. Stuff like that. How the kids treat the teachers is horrible. Most teachers won’t put up with it and some don’t know that the kids think that way. I know because I’ve gone to public school since I was in kindergarten. The kids don’t treat them with the right manners. Throwing stuff at them behind their back, flipping them off, calling them nasty words, treating them with disrespect and many more. I bet if some of their parents knew they would be in so much trouble only in a rare occasion would a parent not care. In all of this public school is not a place for people to freely lie, bully, cheat, and be rude.

What is love?

What is love? Is it the feeling you feel when you’re with him/her? Is it the butterflies that surround your stomach when he/she on your mind? Is it the aching feeling you get when you’re far away from them? I don’t know. I’ve never been in love. I’m still waiting for the right person and the right time that God says is right. I am patient  with God; even when I don’t want to be. For those of you that are teens or not even teens yet I can promise you that you are NOT in love. You are too young to know what love is. I know what your thinking; Erin, you’ve never been in love how would you know that I’m not in love. I know you are not in love because you’re too young; not fully experienced life.

If you think you’re in love good for you; but it’s not true. You will realize that when you are older. I will find love when God wants me to and when he sends the right man into my life.  I don’t know when that will be but I’m fine with my life. I don’t need a guy to make my life worth living. If you think you need a guy to make you happy you must not be living life right. A guy can not complete you; only God can. You may think I’m wrong; but I’m not. If you do not believe in God; it’s your loss. I can tell you for sure you’ll never really understand life without the Holy Spirit living in you. You will never see things the way others do without the Holy Spirit breathing in and out of you.

What is love? Is it wanting to be beside them every waking moment? Is it saying I love you even though you don’t mean it? Is love about fighting with the one you “love”? I’ve never been in love but I know that’s not what love is.

Don’t even get me started.

Don’t even get me started on the whole Miley Cyrus stuff. I mean she is not my favorite person in the whole world. And I’m not a fan of the Hannah Montana stuff but I do think she has a really good talent for acting. In the Last Song she did an amazing job but nobody will give her the time of day because of her past. They just can’t look passed her history which really makes me mad. I know I said that the Last Song would not be a classic because Miley was going to be in it. But as I started watching trailers and reading the book I really got into it. When I saw the movie I had very low expectations but after I saw it I really liked it. She did an amazing job. People don’t believe she had it in her but boy did she. People need to step away from her Hannah Montana acting and see the Last Song because it is worth it. You may think she is a so-called “Slut” but at least I’m giving her a chance even though I don’t like her that much. People better get used to seeing her face and her acting skills in movies because when the last season of Hannah Montana ends in the summer she is going to put her music on hold and work on her acting and get rolls in movies.  It just ticks me off to see people say crap about her when she isn’t that bad. Yeah she did have those times where she messed up and made mistakes but who hasn’t? We are all sinners in our own ways but that doesn’t mean that we have another side to us or can change. I just think if you give somebody a chance they can really impress you and Miley Cyrus is one of those people. We all have our own opinions but in this case you have to see the movie to believe it. It can’t hurt to see it. You may hate her but the movie really shows another side of her.

I express my feelings through words. Some people like to use physical fighting and verbal fighting to take out their feelings. I don’t feel it is really worth all the trouble to do that. It takes up too much energy fighting with someone. So I use poetry or random blogs about my feelings. Like if I’m feeling happy about a boy it may turn out like this:

In this world full of hurt and pain,
I need someone who would help me through the rain
To comfort me when I’m sad,
Doing everything just to make me glad

In this world I need a Brave Knight,
Who would never give up any fight
A knight who would dry away my tears,
Telling me to overcome my fears

A knight who loves me for who I am inside,
With him there’s nothing more I need to hide
A person who will still be standing strong,
Even though everything has gone wrong

I need someone who is willing to give me more,
Someone I can call my Knight in Shining Armor

There’s this boy and he’s more then I’ve ever imagined
There’s this boy and I’m kind of attracted to him
There’s this boy and he’s my knight in shining armor.
I will love him forever and always
My knight in shining armor

If I was upset about  a boy it would be something like this

I haven’t cried but
I haven’t smiled
I haven’t died but
I’m not alive
I’m a dreamer whose
Lost her dream
I’m a lover
Not a fighter
I’m inspired but
I’m not looking for inspiration
I’ve lost all my strength
I’ve not gained an ounce of it back
I’ve lost the one I love
And I’ve not found him

I’m not dying
I’m just heart broken

Those who are not writers can’t really express it that way so they take it out on others. I think writers are blessed in many ways. Writers, I think, are either very calm and aren’t into the fighting type thing. And other writers are more into writing because they hurt in some way and need a way to let it out. There are many different types of writers; they are either, obsessed lovers, abused and lonely, happy go lucky, sad and depressed,  and more. And some people just don’t show any interest in poetry or blogging. They are more into sports and other things. Poetry is just amazing. How your feelings can be transformed into words touching others in a way you never thought possible. I didn’t really get into poetry until I was a little older but now that I have I am happy that I did. 😀

Too time has passed.

What happened to the time where we didn’t have girlfriends and boyfriends and we were too young to have cell phones. The time where we could actually go on vacation and enjoy ourselves and laugh and have a good time with your family.

As we grow older some of us believe our family is not cool enough for us. Some people believe that you must have a boyfriend or girlfriend to feel alright. Vacations aren’t fun because we don’t know how to have fun with our families. I’m sick and tired of people who think they can shut out their family and just life itself for a unhealthy relationship.

I’m fine by myself; but i’m not really alone. I have tons of friends and family and a church family; my life is fine. I don’t need some guy to make me feel alright. God is the only one who can complete me. If you believe a guy or a girl can “complete” you then you should think again. It’s not healthy.

Time has passed too much. I remember when you could go to school and just have fun not caring what you look like or if people like you. When you are younger you don’t have a care in the world but now that we are older it’s like you have to look perfect or you get made fun of. I don’t care if I look perfect. Yeah I want to look nice but I don’t care if somebody doesn’t like what I am wearing. They can deal with it. If I like it that is all that matters.

Other people if somebody doesn’t like them it is like the world has ended. That’s not me. I’m not the type that likes to start drama. I just hear about it and I laugh because the ones who start is complain about it but what they really don’t see is that they started it and their lives would be so much better without it.

I guess in all of this I wanted to point out that people need to just grow up. Stop causing drama. Be yourself. Don’t listen to bad things that people have to say about you. Laugh more. Just live life to the fullest. Don’t be afraid to have fun with your family and friends without it being all about your phone or your girlfriend or boyfriend. Take some time for a breather away from the ones who you think love you the most but really nobody loves you more then the Lord and your family. 😀

Dear Love

Dear Love,
I love you, I always have.  You make me feel happy on the days where I feel like I’m about to crash. And with out you here I am lost.  I miss you, I always will no matter if you’re here or there. You are not who you used to be; that girl changed you and you don’t even know it.  She makes you treat me like I am nobody and it’s like you are blind to other peoples feelings when you are around her. Your blind of everybody around you but her.  I don’t know how you treat other people but I hope its not the way you treated me because that was awful and I hope it never happens promises on the never. You and her don’t belong not to sound rude but you two just don’t mix.  It’s because you are treating people like dirt and it’s her fault because without her you were a nice, gentlemen sweet caring guy; you were just so amazing.  But that’s what some girls do they changes guys sometimes its good but you know what this time isn’t so good and I hope you started to realize that and all that you have done.  Now your being a jerk and like her little robot who does everything she says.  For now we will just be friends like your little girlfriend wants.  And for now I will stick to guys who are my friends no matter what and the ones who love me for who I am and nothing else.  So I will wait for Mr. Right because obviously he’s not here at the moment.

Yours Truly….
