I have a theory.

Just recently me and my grandmother were talking about what the job of the Vice President actually is. And all we could come up with is that he steps up if the President dies. So I have a theory.
You know that expression "Where does the time go?"? I think the VP sits around and steals it. Yeah, that's right. Steals it. He sucks it up in his speical time sucking vacuum, and keeps it all for himself. What else could he do all day? Something to improve the country? As if. No one in the government actually does that. So, he steals time.
I mean, look at it. I was a sixth grader just yesterday, I swear it! Me and Caitlin, just yesterday, had our first conversation (which was about Harry Potter, by the way) and we laughed the entire class, making out the Harry Potter fan club. And it was also just yesterday when she and Nolan first found interest in each other! Like, I swear. They met yesterday. Possibly the day before, but very unlikley.
Or was that not just yesterday? Maybe it was 4 years ago...... See! It's that sneaky Vice President, I tell you! That's why Dick Cheney shot that guy! He was getting onto Cheney's game, and Cheney thought he needed to know what was good for him. So BLAM he shot him. Tsktsk.
I really wish he would stop. I want that time back, I didn't get to do with it what I wanted.

Amazing Grace

(This isn't the best thing I've ever written. But I like it.)

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I’m found.
Was blind, but now I see.

What a sweet song! How amazing is our Fathers love for us! Every time I hear them I am humbled by the truth and power in these words. The amazing grace supplied by our Father has saved us, the wretches of this world. We were lost and blind, as we did not know God. But now, those of us who are saved, are found, and can see the amazing gift God gave us through his Son, Jesus.
Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” Amazing Grace brings this truth into sharp retrospect. We all have sinned, and God cannot handle that. Thusly, we are condemned. Later on in Romans, though, verse 6:24 says “For the wages of sin is death, but we are given the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
So, we know that we are condemned. There is no doubt to that. BUT we were given the gift of Jesus, when He died on the cross, that we may spend forever in heaven. When we accept Him as our savior, His blood washes us clean. Then, and only then, may we enter Gods heaven. And this is what Amazing Grace is all about.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise,
Then when we first begun.

Everyone is born with a bubble. They have this bubble around them, and nothing can get through. To them, the world is a perfect place, with no bad in it. People don’t die, they don’t get sick. Wars, starvation, illness, sadness, all of these things are unhappy thoughts, but none of them really matter, they don't really exsist.
No where but the place where they are is actually real. There aren't other countries. There aren't other lives going on around them. It's not that children are self centered, they just can't understand the concept. Their little minds wont wrap around the thought of other places going on at the same time theirs are. It's as if other people's lives come to a standstill, until they're around.
Usually sometime in High School, maybe late Middle School, this bubble is burst. The world comes at them suddenly, and they see it in a new light. This is what changes people the most in their lifetime. The biggest 360 they’ll ever do. Their lives are formed around this one moment where their innocence has been stripped away, leaving them with nothing but the truth. From that moment on, nothing is ever the same.
