The Liebster Award

This morning, I found out that Ali Bolsover (her blog is called Humble Mumblings) nominated me for the Liebster Award! First of all, I want to thank her so much for the nomination 😊. She asked some questions to all of her nominees, so here are the questions and my answers. Why did you start your blog? …

Weaving

One of my best friends is having a birthday soon! I love making things, so as a present, I am making her a bracelet set in her favorite colors: red, purple, and pink. I’m using embroidery floss to make a little macrame pattern over and over for her first bracelet. It’s an intricate pattern and…

One on One

Tonight, I’m going to my grandparents’ house by myself. Whenever they come, they like to take us kids for one on one time, and today and tomorrow will be my time. I love sitting and talking with Nana especially. She’s very wise and gives great advice. I love spending one on one time with her,…

Heroes

​These are the heroes Just ordinary people Laying down their lives Like angels in disguise They’re weak, but always willing They dare to do the hard things And in the dark and desperate places No one else goes You’ll find the heroes You’ll find the heroes.  Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed,…

My Favorite Verse

My favorite Bible verse is Psalm 108:13- Through God we shall do valiantly, for he it is that shall tread down our enemies. To me, it simultaneously inspires boldness and is comforting. Think about it: through God, we shall do valiantly! The definition of valiant is “possessing or showing courage or determination.” God can help us do…

Finding the Good

The featured image is of my patient dog Jessie posing by our road. Today is the unofficial first day of fall. I know it officially started several days before, but two days ago, the temps hit 90°F and yesterday it was in the 70°s, but today it has been real fall weather; last night was…

Formulas

This school year in science, I am doing Matter and Energy, which is basically physics with a different name. I have so many principles and formulas to memorize! Archimedes, Bernoulli, Boyle, Charles, Hooke, Amonton, and there are most likely more that I don’t remember. The trouble is that they’re so similar! Temperature and volume, pressure…

The Sword Dance

Here I am, at my grandparents’ awesome rental house! We have been having a wonderful time here, a lot of times just talking and relaxing (as we never get to do at home). My Nana and I email back and forth pretty much every day when they’re not here, and in those messages somewhere I asked…

Fall

I give up, I surrender I throw in the towel Exposing my weakness To infinite power With all of my weight I lean heavy on you With bags on my back And in both my hands too I fall, I fall on you. My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my…

Prepared

The featured image is a picture I took of corn leaves silhouetted. I’m usually a prepared person. I set out my clothes for the next day and hang them on the bathroom door. I know what time to be ready and I make sure I am. I know the family’s agenda and work all that…

Comparison

Strength is the goal in all areas of life. We want to be the best, the strongest, no matter what it is. But that’s impossible. Sadly, we’re human, and someone will always be better at it than us. For instance, I’m pretty competitive, and whenever someone is better that me in dance or something, I…

Art

I’m so glad God gave us art and creativity. Think about it: without art, we’d have no music, no painting, dancing, singing, sculpting, drawing, writing… The list goes on and on and it’s all things that deeply enhance our lives. But He gave them to us for His glory. Abusing art would be listening to…
