Flower Photos

Here are a lot of flower pictures I took in our church yesterday. I told you I would post them.
 I like this one!

 This one would have been a good one for the photo contest too!

Bible Verse of the Week #2

I decided to go with my dad's favorite verse and my oldest brother's confirmation verse. So this week's Bible verse if from Philippians 4:13. (the questions go with all of Philippians 4)
           "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (this is in one of the many versions)

It's totally true! We can do everything through Him, when we give are all to Him. I am in a Bible Study right now. We talk a LOT about surrendering our life for Jesus. Everything is lifted off our backs when we give everything to the Lord and let Him take care of everything. You don't have to be worried about what will happen.

Everything happens for a reason. We talked about the phrase before this one today in school. We are talking about 9/11 and my teacher asked us, "Being a Christian, what would you say when someone started questioning God after this tragedy?" I remember one of my friends saying that everything happens for a reason. We now have a good security that makes sure our lives stay as comforting as possible.

Some discussion questions to make you think:
      1. What are you worried about?
      2. Do you consider yourself a person that worries too much or too little?
      3. How has becoming a Christian made you more content in your circumstances?
      4. What are you content with?
      5. Are you content with what you have?

Look forward to LOTS more flower pictures I took in our church and school today!

My LONG weekend!

First I want to say Happy (late) Easter! It is really a miracle that the Lord rose from the dead. :-) I went to my grandparents' house on a lake and I took a TON of pictures! Here are a couple. Maybe not...

 Muff Jr.
 Butterscotch and Muff Jr.
 Colored eggs!

 I LOVE taking pictures of birds!

 My cousin Eva
 My cousin Connor
 My cousin Jackson

 This is Jackson's birthday cake, a dachshund. (more about that later)
 My brother Luke
 And more Luke
 Really pretty purple flowers!

 Storage shed
 Wood pile

I took this when I was on a four wheeler ride... you'll read more about that later.

 Mossy tree

This one isn't in the best mode.
 Even more birds
 My Easter outfit
 My cousin Brooke
Brooke on the swing
I think this one is SO cute!
Black and white
Haha! Have you noticed how old the swing is? My mom used it when she was younger.

Brooke wanted to throw rocks in the lake.
Here we go!

I like the color on this one
I can't get enough of this girl! She's so cute!
She one of my three, girl blood related cousins.
She wanted to go on the swing again... these are all in order in time.
She turned 4 on April 22nd.
I helped make this beautiful cake with my cousin Eva and my aunt.
"No way! There's fire in front of me!"
My aunt made this one too. They're little dachshunds.
Blow those candles out!
I LOVE this thing!
Thank you Zach (my brother) for taking me on this twice over the weekend!
Sadly, I got Zach and I wet and dirty because I went over a mud puddle.
By the way, it's a four wheeler.
How many cars were at your Easter celebration?
My brother got this hat for Easter, and I tried it on... I look ridiculous!

I hope you enjoyed all of the pictures! I really hope all of you get a chance to follow me on my blog. Oh, and I edited almost all of these on Come back tomorrow to see my Bible verse! Thanks! God Bless!
