Akiane

Today my family and I had the honor of entertaining Miss Akiane (pronounced AH-KEE-AH-NUH) Kramarik and her family in our home. In case you aren't familiar with the name, Akiane is a world-renowned thirteen-year-old artist. (You can visit her website here.)

I was curious to find out what kind of a young lady Akiane had become (it has been many years since I last saw her) considering the fact that she's been in the limelight of the artistic world for five years now. Becoming a celebrity at such a young age is enough to tweak anyone. But I was in for a surprise.

I found young Akiane to be a beautiful young lady with long blond hair and a pair of twinkling blue eyes that smile, if possible, even more than her teeth encased in braces do. From the moment she walked in the door, I knew she was a kindred spirit.

The Kramarik family, Marc, Farrelli, and five children (Akiane is the third eldest), is a devoted home educating family with a vision for proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ everywhere. My mother and Mrs. Kramarik immediately found common delights in health and nutrition, and my father instantly hit it off with Mr. Kramarik. Her eldest brother, Delfini, watched over the little children and joined in the men's animated conversation, Jean Lu, the next eldest, amused us with his incredible sense of humor and his culinary talents, eight-year-old Illia played all day with my little brothers, and little Aurielus, just one-year-old today, never left his mommy.

Akiane was able to run outside and rejoice in the beautiful day that Jesus gave us, without reporters and photographers, celebrities and fans swirling around her. My heart was delighted, as was her mother's, that Akiane was able to be just what she is with us - a little girl. Certainly a little girl with extraordinary gift, but nevertheless an actual, human little girl, not some "god child" that unnamed interviewers have unknowingly, but blasphemously called her. Akiane is a delightful girl, who enjoys many of the same pastimes and hobbies that my younger sisters and I enjoy, and she has struck me as being remarkably deep, something I consider quite unusual for her age.

Most importantly, Akiane is a young lady of great virtue and a child of Jesus Christ. Her goals are to proclaim His name everywhere she goes and with everyone she meets. Akiane shines in her family, and recognizes that place as the most fulfilling, rewarding place she will ever find.

I am blessed to have begun a friendship that I can see deepening and widening like a river sweeping into an ocean. In fact, that's what Akiane's name means - ocean.

Is that the girl who's paintings were in that art store in Coeur 'd Alene (across from the resort)?

BTW, I have to tell you of my silly dream. =D Last night I dreamed that you and Rachel were visiting me during the summer months.. and we were taking pictures along our backyard fence (with green fields behind it as a backdrop)... All of the sudden, a huge tornado touched down just north of our place, so we girls all rushed inside... and it ended up that our neighbors houses were all pretty destroyed.. but ours was hardly touched at all! =D We kept saying, "Praise the Lord for his safety and protection of us and our house!!" =D (Hehe, I thought it was funny that I'd dream something like *that*...)

I'll be mailing you guys out a small little package tomorrow at the P.O., so you can expect it next week! Love ya!

I restored my computer and now i am not able to use programs i did before saying that i no longer have the system requirements and i lost connection to the internet on the computer and i think its because of a virus because it worked before Im using a different computer and i was wondering what do i have to do in order to make my computer have the system stuff it did before System Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 1 Manufactured and supported by Hewlett-Packard Pavilion Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz 2.80GHz 504 MB of RAM I can't even download Windows Live messenger [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]

ok so yeah it caught it, and it got put in quarantined items, so i deleted it, it still says that the virus is in the history, does that still mean that it can bring down my system? or does it mean that the trojan virus is history now and its just showing what got caught? im not too muh of an expert on cp and viruses but i think i got rid of the virus, didn't i? this is probably a useless question, but i just wanna know if i got rid of the Trojan virus, its in the history and thats it, nothing else [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
