1 TOP 3 DAYS/DAY 1/Jeans

Howdy folks! Today I am doing a challenge that Fresh Modesty, Bramblewood FashionBoyer Family Singers, and Creations by Callie are hosting,  "1 Button down; 3 days." And Yes! I am wearing pants! Just ask and I'll explain why. ; )


My mom (also my camera lady) helped me to pick out the flats, and I'm really happy how it just makes the whole outfit cuter!
I usually try to wear a longer shirt like this one over my pants,(1. sometimes they're just to tight on the back end and 2. even if they're modest, it makes me feel more comfortable. :) ) But I really like these pants because they are loose, but still flattering! And I don't have to worry if my shirt goes up. :)

These books are AWESOME!!! On the back of the book it says, "The Baker Family Adventures series follows the exciting lives of Mr. and Mrs. Baker and their four children: responsible Phil, sensible Abby, daring Andy, and inquisitive Tom. The Bakers are a Christian homeschooling family who, in their desire to help others, frequently find themselves in dangerous situations where they must grow in courage and learn important lessons of godliness."

These books are a mystery adventure series. There are 4 books but I have not read the 4th yet. :)  Did I mention that these books are awesome? ;) I mean, were else can you find a Christian Home-school mystery adventure series! By the way, They do not cut down on the action ether! The books in the series are, Summer of SuspensePeril on Providence IslandThe Treacherous Trail, and Riddle of the Ruby Ring (which I have not read.)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Howdy ya'll! Happy Valentine's Day! Today I got 4 teeth pulled! :P Well, I'm glad at lest I got out of school,  got two milk shakes, and a whole lot of movies and shows! :) Here is some Bible verses and a video for you! :D

13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things

~1 Corinthians 13:7~

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

~John 3:16~


How was your week? 
Have you ever got your teeth pulled?
Happy Valentine's Day! <3

Sermon
-------------------------------
Our sermon was about after the kingdom (Israel and Judah) had split. Israel had been attacked, and Judah was going to get attacked if they did not do something. They had to get things right with God. They had a good godly king then, trying to bring Judah back to God. He did what any godly man would do, he prayed.
Here is the points the pastor gave us.


                                               -Problem- "They did evil in the eyes of the Lord."
 -Prayer-
 -Purity-


He also talked about how our stander of purity has dropped to the worlds stander instead of being God's  stander. To put it in to view he talked about the purity of our food. Did you know that in Peanut butter they are aloud to let a Average of 30 insect fragments per 100 grams of it! In chocolate they are aloud to let a Average of 60 insect fragments per 100 grams of it! The Food Defect Action Levels states that these contaminants "pose no inherent hazard to health." In the same way our purity has been dropped. But the world says it will "pose no inherent hazards" but it does!! Isaiah said when he had a glimpse at The Lord, "Then said I, “Woe is me! For I am undone, because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts."(Isaiah 6:5) Now, Isaiah was a pretty good guy, But when he saw the glory! The holiness! AND THE PURITY!!!!! He saw how unclean he was. It is God's stander that we are try to be like.

Sweeping the clouds away! :D

Howdy! How are you? This weekend's sermon was about Solomon's life, and how he was so humble and wise in  the early part of his life. 
  
In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.
And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.
~1 Kings 3:5-12

And the preacher also talked how we are so blessed to have The Spirit live within us, Solomon even said about temple that it was not great enough to hold God.

Lowest temp. in 20 years

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."~ Isaiah 1:18
