Too Busy To Blog....

I just love these!! Do YOU?? 

Life has been incredibly busy as of late. We have had construction crews in and out of our house, numerous "travelers", and commitments that have kept us busy! (i.e. homeschool co-op, church.) I haven't even taken pictures since I went to Colorado!! Pretty sad, right?

Well, don't worry I will be back blogging here soon! I just need to take more pictures and decide what to write about!

So, I am asking YOU, dear reader, what YOU would like to see on my blog. Do YOU want more giveaways? Book/Movie Reviews? Do YOU want to learn about homeschooling? Do YOU want more pictures? Do YOU want to see me write about what I am learning in the Word? 

Its an open forum. YOU can decide! 

All YOU have to do is leave a comment telling me what YOU would like to see on this blog! Its that easy. 

I look forward to hearing YOUR answers!!

In Which I Couldn't Find A Title...

In American Lit. this year, our teacher made us write a poem. I started brainstorming in class.  I hope you enjoy it! :) 

Believe In

"Believe in yourself they say
but that is not the right away

You are dead and cannot be 

raised to life you see

But, God sent His Son

so we might become

children of life and light

All the world will know 

that Jesus is the Christ

He has come so you might believe

not in yourself you see 

But instead trust in Him

for He was raised to life 

So, now you can live for eternity."

America's Finest...


Yes, be jealous people.

These guys are REAL.

L to R: Clay, Thomas, Justin, Charlie, & Dad. 


"This is feminine..."

Clay's friends came over for the weekend to go to church with us and just to hang out! Clay brought Thomas and Justin to Secret Church and they wanted to come back and hear David preach on a regular Sunday. They also brought a new guy, Charlie.
I enjoyed getting to know them better and look forward to next time! :)

My Mom and I had a wonderful three days in Colorado at the Set Apart Girl Conference hosted by Eric and Leslie Ludy! I met some awesome girls, (most of them in their 20s), spent time with my mom, and learned about what it means to be a set-apart girl!!

Here are some pictures I took of the campus and the girls.

Eric and Leslie introduced us to their kids on the last night!




Are they not adorable??

We woke up Sunday to a fresh batch of snow on the ground!
It was sooo pretty!!

Its snowing!! lol

The "girls" with Eric and Leslie...

I will share more later once I compile it all! :)

Anyway, to explain the title of the post, I might as well tell you that we survived the lock-in of '11. aka THE BLIZZARD THAT SHUT DOWN ATLANTA ––– COMPLETELY.

yeah. not fun.

Coming back home from the conference, mom and I got STUCK in Atlanta. My Mom recaps the story here.

Needless to say, we are just getting back into life around here. Hopefully, I can post in the next couple of weeks of what I learned while I was there! :)

Happy Weekend Y'all!

Day 5 - Your Definition Of Love

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. 

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8Love never fails. 

But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 
~ 1 Corinthians 13

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.
~ 1 John 3:16

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
~ John 3:16

Day 2 - Your First Love

I fell in love almost 8 years ago with My Creator, Father, Friend, King, and Savior.

So many words to describe Him.

 "And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God." ~ Revelation 21:3

"They will see his face,..." ~ Revelation 22:4a

I cannot wait!!! 

I LOVE My Maker, Jesus Christ. I could not imagine life any better than a life lived for and with Christ.

I pray that you may fall in love with Him, too.

"Jesus said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me." ~John 14:6
