New Series~My poems

Well hello there! I am so glad you decided to click on this post to see what it’s all about 🙂 You can pretty much tell what it’s about from the title, but I am going to explain a little better!

So yes, I do write poetry. I really enjoy it too! Rhyming and putting words together comes really easy to me, which is quite helpful when writing poetry, haha! Some are longer than others and some are more personal than others as well. The thing I love the most is the fact that God speaks to me through almost all of them. Most of my writings are me just pouring my heart out. Most of them start out as a problem or something I have been dealing with, but by the end God has turned it completely around and He adds hope and encouragement.

How did this series come about? I had mentioned something about writing poems in a previous post and my fabulous blogging friend, Maggie said she’d love to see some of them. I always thought about posting my poems, but the thought of it was pretty daunting, especially because most are quite personal. BUT, I have decided to just go for it! Maggie really inspired me to do so too, so “THANK YOU, MAGGIE! YOU ROCK!” I am not sure how often I will be posting poems, but when I do I hope that they will inspire you! Shall we begin?!

My first poem I will be posting is one I wrote just a few days ago. This is a perfect example of why I love writing them SO much! As you’ll be able to tell this is just a  back-in-forth conversation between me and God. God’s words to me are in the quotations.

So that is that! I hope you enjoyed reading and I hope it touched you even in the slightest of ways! May your day be bright and beautiful 😀 ❤

Prayer Needed: UPDATE

Hello wonderful people! I hope your day is going amazing! I am here with a quick post. I just want to let everybody know how my brother is doing.

Well, turns out my original post was inaccurate, (things were crazy!) my brother actually broke his shoulder, not his collarbone. He did have to get surgery, he had two long pins put into his shoulder which will be surgically removed in 6 or so weeks. Now that we got all of the facts out-of-the-way; overall he is doing very good! Obviously he can’t do anything with that arm (thankfully it was his left, as he is right-handed), but he is well. He actually hasn’t taken any pain-killers since yesterday evening, because the pain isn’t bad, which is a huge blessing!!

Thank you to ALL of those who prayed for him! Your prayers are VERY appreciated! My brother thought it was awesome that people he doesn’t even know, from all over the place were praying for him! Here is what he had to say:

“Thank you so much for all  your prayers, they’ve been working! I please ask that you’ll continue to pray, because this Wednesday I have a check-up on how I am doing. Thank you so much for all you’ve been doing.”

I know my family would still love it if y’all could continue to pray for him. We are praying that the healing process will be very speedy! There is already evidence of this showing, which is an amazing thing to praise God about 😀

As always, have a blessed and amazing day!

Prayer Needed

Hi everyone! I am here calling all prayer warriors for a favor. My brother is a football player (an amazing one too!) he was at a game tonight and he recovered a fumble (told ya he was good 😉) Unfortunately in the mix of it all he broke his collarbone, pretty badly too. He also pulled his arm out of socket which does not make the situation any better. He was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. Currently my parents are waiting for the surgeon to tell them whether he needs surgery right now, or not. This is a situation that needs to be handed over to God, for sure. We are praying for a miracle to happen, we know it can happen. In case you didn’t know: God is awesome y’all!! Again, my whole family would really appreciate all of your prayers. Thank you, all of you guys are so awesome 😊❤️

Interview Me~Answers!

Hi there! On August 5th I posted a post asking you for some things you’d like to know about me, so you can get to know me better. I did it in a pretty strange way too….If you haven’t had the chance to check that out you can do so here: Interview Me~Got Questions. 

 

Anyhow, here is my follow-up post with all of the answers to your terrific questions! Thanks to all who have responded with questions! For a special “thank you” I will leave a link to every blogger’s site that left me feedback!

Let’s get started!!

**These questions are not in ANY particular order!**

 

So how did you learn cooking? I have learned a lot from my parents, especially the fundamentals. Nowadays I learn a lot by watching the Food Network and experimenting!

 

What game or movie universe would you most like to live in? I know I have an opportunity to be super creative here, but mind has gone blank, so I am just going to say, ‘The Teen Beach Movie’ Who wouldn’t love to travel to the 60’s?!?!

 

What’s your favorite way to start the day? Waking up early, eating breakfast, drinking hot herbal tea and reading/studying the Bible. Sadly, I rarely follow through with this…

 

Are you interested in anything that most people have never heard of? Decoupaging-Okay, so this is just a fancy word for gluing pieces of paper onto an object and then finishing with a few coats of sealant. The process may be known, but I would say the word is a little more rare 😉

 

Would you rather go hang-gliding or white water rafting? Why? Huh…I guess I would rather go hang-gliding. It seems like it could be peaceful once you started, where as white water rafting is a constant state of high energy and craziness. Honestly, I will probably never do either of these two.

 

What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with but that you just don’t get? Pokémon

 

 Would you rather spend time with friends going to the mall or have a hiking adventure? Although I do enjoy shopping; I would choose a hike. I love exploring nature and involving a friend would make things even better!

 

Hershey’s or Reese’s? Dark chocolate Hersheys!

 

Dogs or Cats? Dogs, all the way!

 

Pixar or Disney? There are some amazing Pixar movies that I love, but I have to stick with Disney 🙂

 

TV show or Movie? TV! I enjoy movies, but I am more often in an episode kind of mood!

 

Someone who’s exactly like you for a friend, or exactly opposite? I think both could be healthy. Having somebody that is the opposite is good, especially with me being an introvert they help me be bolder. Also, I find it enjoyable to have somebody just like me, since we share a lot of things in common.

 

Winter or Summer? Spring or Fall? Summer and Fall. Out of them all, it is FALL FOR SURE!!

 

Big animals or little ones? Overall I would say little ones!

 

 What’s your favourite breed of dog? If we are going with looks then it would be: Border collies! We actually have one:

Isn’t he so cute?!?!?!

Favourite colour? ORANGE!!

 

What movie could you watch over and over and still love? I am going to say the first thing that popped into my head: ‘Soul Surfer’ I’ve watched it many times and I still love it!

 

Favourite movie? I have SO MANY! God’s Not Dead, Soul Surfer, Tangled, The Blind Side, This is Our Time, and the most recent, The Next Karate Kid!

 

Favourite song? I cannot even list them all!! I am going to limit myself to one:  I Surrender by Hillsong United

 

What is your favourite craft? I really enjoy clothing DIY’s and seasonal decor. Neither of which I have ever posted about….I wonder why?!

 

What is your perfect pizza? Stuffed crust supreme pizza. Plenty of sauce, cheese, and toppings. 

 

Have you ever danced in the rain?
Yes, I am pretty sure I have….I think the fact that I am even doubting it means it needs to happen again!!

 

What was the last picture you took? Let me check….oh no, this is embarrassing. I know I have to be honest though. The last picture I took was one of my headphones cord tangled in my arm hairs….Why would I take a picture of that?! *note~This was last week and no I do not have this picture anymore, haha!*

 

What was your first thought when you woke up this morning? I believe it was me being thankful that my dream was not real!

 

What is your earliest memory? I am not sure how old I was, but the earliest I can recall is when my oldest, younger brother ran into a body mirror and cut his head open 😱 

 

What is one meal/cuisine/cooking technique that you just can’t master? I have MANY techniques to explore yet. To be honest, I can’t think of one I am struggling with at the moment. I think that means I need to try some new things!!

 

When did you start following God? Fantastic question! I was saved at the age of 10, so that was almost 8 years ago!! Though I was saved, it was only a few years ago where I started a REAL relationship and began to wholeheartedly follow Jesus! 

 

 

I want to give another big thanks to all of those who asked me questions! As I promised, here are the links to all those who asked questions! Please check out all of these wonderful blogs:
