Advent Pictures//feat. What A Time (feat. Whatuprg and Svrcina)

Oh, what a time, the stars are brightly shining

It was the night of our dear Savior’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining ’til He appeared and the soul felt His worth

What Child is this?

Whose crown is this?

On the ground I live, falling on my knees

Giving everything to the King of Kings
(Oh, what a time)

Oh, what a time

The stars are brightly shining, it was the night of dear Savior’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining ’til He appeared and the soul felt His worth

Oh, what a time

Holy divine

All must align

Greater than wine

Got a lot of stress, and a lot of pain

But we all alive, and we all okay

It’s a holiday, it’s a holiday

Thank God for the holiday

You’re the King of kings

Giving everything, everything


Hey Everyone!

Merry Christmas (a day late)!!!

I had a wonderful Christmas and Advent. I hope that you all are having a wonderful holiday season, too!

I took way more than a few pictures of our candles this year as you can see above. Believe me, that’s only a fraction of them all!

Have great rest of your Christmas break!

Christmas 2018 Recap!

Hey Everyone!

My family had a really wonderful Christmas this year! It was amazingly not stressful! Until this holiday season almost every holiday or birthday for as long as I can remember something has gone at least slightly wrong or different parts of our family were super stressed. It was really awesome to be able to just enjoy our time with both sides of our family! I am so thankful that this Christmas season went well.

I want to share some picture I took of our nativity scene. I hope you enjoy them!

Another candle picture, I shouldn’t have too many more now that Advent is over.
They look so peaceful.
A cute succulent plant.
Aren’t her wings beautiful?
One of the three kings.
Mary and baby Jesus! Isn’t it so beautiful?!

How was your Christmas? What is your favorite Christmas food? Which of these pictures do you like best?

Merry Christmas!

(Sorry that this post was short! I should be back to my normal posting schedule next week!)

I would love to hear about your Christmas/Holiday traditions and plans in the comments!!

P.S. Team Bear is still in first place!!

Christmas Carols and more!

Hey Everyone!

This week we don’t have a weekly verse, my mom decided that it wasn’t realistic to try to memorize a new verse this week, because I don’t know about you, but we are going semi-crazy getting ready for Christmas. I have no idea how I am going to have everything done in time! Every time I finish a project I feel so much closer to being done, until I think about what I still have left.

I wanted to share several of my favorite Christmas carols, so here you go!

Let It Snow Sarah Reeves

Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Man it doesn’t show signs of stoppin’
And I brought me some corn for poppin’
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss good-night
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

And the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, and snow

When we finally kiss good-night
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really grab me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

Oh the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

I didn’t ever really enjoy this song until I heard Sarah Reeves’s version! Now I am kinda obsessed with it. 😀

Another beautiful beeswax candle photo.

O Holy NightLauren Daigle

Oh holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night, when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name, all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy, in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night, when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine

Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night, when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine

I LOVE O Holy Night! It might be my absolute favorite Christmas carol! So putting my favorite Christmas carol and my one of my favorite singer together is just amazing!

Our nativity set or as my little sister calls it our “activity set”.

How Great Thou ArtPentatonix (feat. Jennifer Hudson)

Oh Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout, the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art (how great Thou art)
How great Thou art (how great Thou art)
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee, oh to Thee
How great Thou art (how great Thou art)
How great Thou art

When through the woods oh, and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee (then sings my soul)
How great Thou art (how great Thou art)
How great Thou art (how great Thou art)
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art (how great Thou art)
How great Thou art (Great Thou art)

When Christ shall come
With shouts of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart (shall fill my heart)
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration (adoration)
And then proclaim, “My God, how great Thou art”

Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art (How great Thou art)
How great Thou art (How great Thou art)
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art 
How great Thou art 
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

I love Pentatonix and especially this song!

Well, I guess that is all for this post! I am not exactly sure when I will be posting next other then my BIBPC #6 picture for this week, but I should be posting again soon!

What is your favorite Christmas carol? Do you have a favorite Christmas album?

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

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!!!!!!!!!!
