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!
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!!!!!!!!!!
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!
Our verse for this week is:
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?
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! 😀
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:
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:
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!
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!
What is something you are Thankful for? How was your Thanksgiving?
Thank you for taking the time to read this! Have a wonderful week!
