Weekly Verse #14

Hey Everyone!

Happy second week of Advent! We lit our second candle for the first time last night! My little siblings are glad that two of them can blow out the candles at a time (there was much fighting over who got  to blow the candle out last week)! I cannot believe that we only have two weeks until Christmas! I have no idea how I am going to get all my presents ready by then!

I love how crisp this picture looks.
Beautiful sun!
Isn’t is cool how you can see the flames merging?!

Our verse:

Luke 1.52,53

God has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; God has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.

Does anything stand out to you in this verse? I love how it says that God will fill the hungry with good things!

I will be posting my second BIBPC #6 picture soon! I also am planning on posting a Christmas themed post.

I would love to hear from you all in the comments!!!!!!!!!!

Here is my picture for the COZY category!

My little brother reading a book in a chair. It didn’t turn out exactly as I hoped, oh well.

Weekly Verse #13

Hey Everyone!

I am sorry that this is a day late! I am going to keep this post short and I will be  posting again tomorrow or Thursday as well as on Friday!

I am participating in BIBPC #6! It is a photography contest that Megan came up with!! I am thrilled to be able to be apart of it! I will be posting the pictures I take for the contest!

Isn’t it beautiful how you can see the foggy mist?
My mom is letting me use her camera some, now and I am really enjoying getting to take better pictures! Can’t you see the difference?
More beautiful foggy mist!

Our verse for this week is:

Luke 1.68,69

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has looked favorably on his people and redeemed them. God has raised up a mighty savior for us in the house of his servant David.

Advent started on Sunday! I absolutely LOVE Advent! Almost every night our whole family gathers in our living room and we sing christmas carols, read Bible stories, and the candles! For the rest of Advent our weekly verses will mostly likely be Advent themed.

How was your weekend? Does your family do anything for Advent?

Thank you for reading this!!! 

See You Tuesday!

Hi Everyone!

I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted the past few days! I’ve been busy and haven’t been able to write a blog post I’m excited about. I will be posting again on Tuesday! 

See you then!

Weekly Verse #12

Hey Everyone!

I’ve taken more pictures out of the window by my desk and by our mailbox and I want to share them with you. 😀

Can you see the turkeys? Look closely! 😀
Isn’t the sky so beautiful! I will never ever get tired of looking at the sky and taking pictures of the sky!
Another beautiful sky picture!

Our verse for this week is:

Psalm 119.9

How can young people keep their way pure?

By guarding it according to Your word.

I love how easy this verse makes keeping your way pure seem. It is a wonderfully simple answer to a difficult question. 

What stands out to you from this verse? Do you have a favorite psalm? Any prayer requests?

Thank you for reading this!

Thanksgiving!

Hey Everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving (a few days late)!! I want to share some of the things I am Thankful for this year! Without further ado, here you go! 😀

MUSIC

I am so Thankful for music! Music is so amazing, I listen to music almost constantly, either on our family computer or on my phone while I am doing school. I don’t know how people lived before they could listen to music at home! 😀 

Some of the songs I have had on repeat recently are:

A beautiful cover. Right?

BOOKS:

I LOVE reading so much! Sometimes I think that without books I would go crazy. Books are such a gift from God! I am so glad that there are many talented people who love to write and are willing to share their stories with us! I am so Thankful for our wonderful library system that makes it possible for me to get new books to read regularly. 

Several of the books/series I have really enjoyed this school recently are:

All the books that I currently have out of the library.😀

MY FRIENDS:

I have a couple of amazing friends who I have gotten to know better this year. I have been pen-pals with one of them for several years, but this year we have gotten very close! The other friend I am thinking of I have known (sort of known of) since kindergarten when we did homeschool stuff together. For a long time our families didn’t do anything together, but last year and this year we started doing things together, again. I have really enjoyed getting to know this friend! 

You two know who you are (at least I hope you do!)! I am so Thankful to have you as apart of my life! Thank you for being my friends!

Another friend who I am Thankful for is someone who is like an older sister to me! Thank you for all the letters you write me and everything!! I am so Thankful for you!

Isn’t this great? I saw it somewhere and I just had to repost it. 
Some friends and one of my amazing sisters.

MY FAMILY:

I am so blessed to have the amazing family that I have! I so admire my parents and I am so Thankful that I am their daughter! I am so Thankful for every single one of my wonderful siblings! I love you guys!

I am also so blessed to have my grandparents be in my life so much! I am so Thankful for my amazing Tia! They are all such a blessing to me and our whole family!

This isn’t all of my siblings. 😀

What is something you are Thankful for? How was your Thanksgiving?

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Have a wonderful week!

Weekly Verse #11

Hi Everyone!!

I’m back! It was great to have a short break from blogging, but I’m glad to be back!

It snowed!! I can’t believe it! Honestly it has taken me all week to come to terms with the fact that it is not fall anymore, it’s WINTER! I (think that I) am ready to enjoy the beautiful snow. 

I love how this picture turned out!
I took all of these pictures out of the window by my desk, all at different times of the day and several different days. 

Anyway, now for this weeks verse:

Psalm 65. 1,5,9,11

Praise is due to You, O God, in Zion…By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance…You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it.. You crown the year with Your bounty.

What stands out to you about this verse? I love how it says that GOD visits the earth and waters it.

Do you have plans for Thanksgiving? We are having some family over and having a delicious feast together! What is your favorite Thanksgiving food? I can’t choose one favorite! 😀

Thank you for reading! I can’t wait to hear from you in the comments!!

Have an amazing week! I’ll be back on Friday or Saturday with a thanksgiving post.
