Some Tags

  Hi! A few months ago, I was tagged three times, by Lilly ShyreeMiss Blogger, and Hailey Hudson. Some of the the questions look pretty hard, (and there's a lot!) so I'm just gonna pick some to answer.

The Liebster Award
   Thanks for tagging me Lilly! 

  • What is your favorite season? Hmm. I like Fall, because of cool weather, nice breezes, leaves falling and changing color, and pumpkin things. And Winter's nice- I really like Christmas time, and I love when there is snow everywhere outside! Spring is nice; flowers blooming, and the weather getting warm. And Summer is nice too, because of the warm weather! (I know, I didn't really answer the question :P) 
  • How many kids do you wanna have someday? A lot! I used to say I would have 40, (including adopting), but I might not really. I would like a lot though! : )
  • What food is disgusting to you? Tuna looks (and smells!) gross, and eggs with the yolks not cooked through look pretty gross. 
  • What is the most boring book you own? I have a French dictionary that might be boring to read too much of. 😄

  Here's a story that I started when I was eleven. I don't know if it has a name, and I'm not sure if I ever got past the first chapter. Instead of telling you about it, you can read it below! 

Chapter 1. A Baby?

  Ding Dong, went the the doorbell at the Mances house. "I wonder who would be here at this time 
of night?" said Mrs. Mance, from her rocking chair. "I'll get it," said Mr. Mance as he was getting up

of the couch. "Mary, quick come!" he said. "What is it?" Mrs. Mance replied. "It's It's a baby!"

"What? A baby!" Mrs. Mance replied. "John, quick, bring it in! It must be so cold

out there! Oh and who would put a baby on our doorstep?" "But if it cries," Mr. Mance replied,"It will wake the

children up." "So!" Mrs Mance said," It's not even 20° out there! Bring her in, quickly!"

"What's you holding Mommy?" came a small voice from the hallway. "Oh Daisy Honey, come over here

 and see for yourself, but be very careful not to wake up the others." "Okay Mommy" Daisy replied.

"It's a little baby girl," said Mrs. Mance."A baby? Yay! A baby! A baby! A baby!" "Quiet down, Daisy, the other kids

 can know about it tomorrow." said Mrs. Mance. "Quick, wake up everybody! It's a baby! Mommy and Daddy found a baby!

You got to come see it! It's  a little girl! Quick! Rose, Paul, everyone! Hurry! It's a baby!"said Daisy. "Oh boy, Daisy, I

told you to be quiet." Mrs. Mance said. "You did?" Daisy replied. "Yes I did", her Mother answered.

"A baby?" " How did you find a baby?" " Who's baby is it?" "Can we keep her?" "How big is she?"

"Where did you find her?" The room flooded with questions from all of the kids."Quiet down kids, You are 

going to scare the baby." said Mrs. Mance. Then Mr. Mance said,"I know you all are very exited about the baby, but I can only answer your questions one at a time," "Okay." the children replied sadly. "Rose, you first."said Mr Mance.

"Okay" said Rose. " Who found her, and where did you find her?" "Okay, The doorbell rang," said Mr. Mance, "and I got up 

to get it, I saw the baby and told your Mom, the baby cried and woke up Daisy, and she woke you's all up."

"Oh" said Rose. "Paul you next" Mr. Mance said. "Okay," said Paul." Can we adopt her and keep her and name her?"

" Probley not," said Mr. Mance, " First we have to try to find her real parents, but for now how about we call her

Patience." "Great idea" said Mrs. Mance. Then Mr. Mance said,"John, do you have any questions?" "no, not 

really. They asked them all." He said. "any one else then?" said Mr. Mance. "No" they all said. "Okay, then

head back to bed. You can see Patience more tomorrow." He said.   " Aww! But I really want to hold her!"

said Daisy and Rose together. "Bedtime." said Mr. Mance. "Good night", said Mrs. Mance. "Good night,"

they all replied. And with that they were of to bed. 

  Yeah, I know there's a lot wrong with it. But I'm glad I still have it! 

  Hope you all enjoyed reading this post! 

Isaiah 43:1-2

*photo from

  But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
Isaiah 43:1-2

The Touch of the Master's Hand

  Recently, my violin teacher gave me a poem called The Touch of the Master's Hand by Myra Brook Welch.  

Twas battered and scarred, and the auctioneer
      Thought it scarcely worth his while
To waste much time on the old violin,
      But held it up with a smile.
"What am I bidden, good folks," he cried,
    "Who'll start the bidding for me?"
"A dollar, a dollar. Then two! Only two?
      Two dollars, and who'll make it three?"

"Three dollars, once; three dollars, twice;
      Going for three…" But no,
From the room, far back, a grey-haired man
      Came forward and picked up the bow;
Then wiping the dust from the old violin,
      And tightening the loosened strings,
He played a melody pure and sweet,
      As a caroling angel sings.

The music ceased, and the auctioneer,
      With a voice that was quiet and low,
Said: "What am I bid for the old violin?"
      And he held it up with the bow.
"A thousand dollars, and who'll make it two?
      Two thousand! And who'll make it three?
Three thousand, once; three thousand, twice,
    And going and gone," said he.

The people cheered, but some of them cried,
    "We do not quite understand.
What changed its worth?" Swift came the reply:
    "The touch of the Master's hand."
And many a man with life out of tune,
      And battered and scarred with sin,
Is auctioned cheap to the thoughtless crowd
      Much like the old violin.

A "mess of pottage," a glass of wine,
    A game — and he travels on.
He is "going" once, and "going" twice,
    He's "going" and almost "gone."
But the Master comes, and the foolish crowd
    Never can quite understand
The worth of a soul and the change that is wrought
    By the touch of the Master's hand.

Isn't it a neat poem? What are your thoughts on it?

All Your Anxiety

Have you ever heard the song, "All Your Anxiety"? It's really nice! You can listen to it below; I know it's just black, but you can read the lyrics while you listen. Enjoy!

1. Is there a heart o’erbound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross, each burden bearing;
All your anxiety—leave it there.

All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus!

2. No other friend so swift to help you,
No other friend so quick to hear,
No other place to leave your burden,
No other one to hear your prayer.

3. Come then at once; delay no longer!
Heed His entreaty kind and sweet,
You need not fear a disappointment;
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.

  Happy (Almost) Fall everyone! How was your summer? I have some fun ideas I'd like to try this Fall, including buying a pumpkin, and using the pumpkin for some food or drink, cooking the seeds to eat, and painting or doing some craft with the shell/rind. I also might try making caramel apples. I'm not sure if they'd be whole, or not. And I'd also like to find some other Fall drink to make, (probably another coffee+pumpkin drink) and make the pumpkin pancakes again. What are your Fall plans? Do you prefer pumpkin or apple things? 
  Here are some things I posted last year that you can try!

Let me know if you try any!

A Poem
The katydid says it as plain as can be
And the crickets are saying it under a tree;
In the aster’s blue eyes you may read the same hint,
Just as clearly as if you had seen it in print;
And the corn sighs it, too, as the waves in the sun,
That Autumn is here, and the summer is done.
By Peris Gardiner

Hurricane Harvey

  You probably know about Hurricane Harvey. Many have died, or lost their homes due to the storms in Texas. Please pray for all of the people whose lives have been changed by this hurricane! Also, you can help by donating money! Here is one place you could donate:
Even if you just donated $10, every cent counts.

  Below is a song I really like: "How can I fear with Jesus?"


Have a great night everyone!
