In the Sight of the Lord

Today my dad did a blog post that challenged me and could effect every reader. It is really thought provoking if you take your time reading it.

Who is your audience? In other words, who are you seeking affirmation from, acknowledgment, or to please? Is what you are doing "pleasing in the sight of the Lord"? May you all be blessed!

Caption This #1!

Hi Everyone!
Recently a blog that I really enjoy has started something that called "Caption This". I asked if I could use the idea and she said yes. It works like this: every other week (maybe a little sooner or later) I post a picture and in the comments, you put what you would caption it! It could be funny, serious, just whatever you want! Then at the end of one week (on average), I will pick my favorite caption and post it with the picture. Then the following week, I will post a different picture. And so on and so forth. I hope that you guys have fun! Just post your caption in the comments and sometime this week I will pick my favorite one!

Here is the first "Caption This" picture!
What is Dream and my sister thinking?

The New Testament!

Hallelujah! I'm so excited! About a year and a half ago, I started reading through the New Testament. I slowly chugged along for about a year until Christmastime when I really buckled down. At that time I was in the Gospel of John. Just this morning, I finished Revelation! Reading through the gospels, I was blessed to learn more detail about the life of Jesus and how much he endured on the cross to save us from our sin. It was truly amazing to read through what Paul was writing to all the churches while he was in prison and how he persevered. Revelation was a bit confusing. It was a bit foreign to me but at the same time it was amazing to read about the end times and the future. This left such a confused impression on me that I had a weird dream last night about the end times.

This morning I had six chapters left and I was planning on reading three this morning and two tomorrow but when I was done with the first three I was so excited for finishing that I just read the remaining three chapters. I want to encourage everyone who is reading this to read the Bible, or even just the New Testament at first, all the way. It is really worth it and it can be done no matter your age.

Old Testament and rereading the New Testament, here I come!

Prayers for Camp

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting consistently, but since summer vacation (when we visited our relatives), starting school, etc. I have just been too busy. I still have many posts that I wish to do, such as on our first day of school and camp next week, so hopefully I will be able to find some time to do some more posts. I really appreciate comments, they help me feel like someone is still reading my blog even though I don't post consistently so if you have time, they would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to those who do comment!

Here is a short post just asking for your prayers. Next week my sister and I are going to a camp by Lake Lopez that is all week long. It's the same camp that I posted about last year, (see Off to Camp!) called LIFE Camp. The LIFE stands for Living In Faith Effectively. This will be my fourth year at this particular camp but each year they have a different theme. This year it will be the armor of God. I would be ever so grateful for each and every one of your prayers not just for my sister and me but for all the other children as well. Please pray for safety, fun, and for growing closer to God. Specific prayers for me would be that I don't get nervous answering questions or speaking up because of what people may think of me. So if you could pray for me then THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

God bless you all!
