Picking, Peeling, and Grating

I don’t mind helping in the kitchen. Some things I enjoy, like concocting my own recipes, or making something like chocolate chip cookies, but there are some things I really do not enjoy… For example, picking spinach. I like spinach, don’t get me wrong, but sifting through the bag for bad leaves and yanking off…

Unto Thee Will I Pray

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. -Psalm 5:2-3, KJV Thanks for reading! God bless y’all, BBG

Something the World Doesn’t Have

Last night, we had a guest speaker at our church. He was a Filipino missionary, and he told us about the work he has been doing in the Philippines for the Lord. What they can accomplish with so little is truly amazing; the organization he works for had a two week VBS last year, and…

Hard

Lord, it’s hard to turn the other cheek Hard to bless when others curse you Oh Lord, it’s hard to be a man of peace, Lord it’s hard, oh it’s hard You know it’s hard to be like Jesus. And it’s hard to step out on them waves Hard to walk beyond your vision Oh…

The Heavens

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. -Psalm 19:1, KJV Thanks for reading! God bless y’all, BBG

The Charity Chapter

Recently, I heard a sermon on love that really spoke to me. The speaker talked about the kind of love that is made of actions, even if the feelings aren’t necessarily always behind them. I have always struggled with this; it just doesn’t come naturally to me! But this speaker also reminded me of the…

The New Seasons

Our weather has been so weird this year! As I mentioned before, it was super cold, but for the past week or so it has been up to the 50°s! We were enjoying not needing coats and even went out to wash the car on Saturday. But alas, the good weather did not last. It snowed…

If I told you my story You would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go And if I told you my story You would hear Love that never gave up And if I told you my story You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine If I should speak then let it be Of the grace…

The Love of a Brother

Saturday is my older brother’s birthday! He will be 15. As he is only 18 months older than me, and we are homeschooled, you can imagine that we know each other pretty well. When we were really little, people would mistake us for twins, and we were together most of the time. When we got…

Rest

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28, KJV Thanks for reading! God bless y’all, BBG
