The Fort Cake

Yesterday was my sister, Lydia's, 7th birthday and she wanted a Fort Cake. So here are some pictures of how it turned out. It was a lot of fun to make! This is after the fort had been destroyed (or eaten) by the enemy ;) Hope you have a very happy day in Jesus!

A letter to Micah

  Dear Micah, Today marks 6 years since you went home to be with Jesus. I miss you lots. I miss hearing you say “Chimpanzees on the roof!” or “No sirry, Bob! No sirry, Bob!”. I miss hearing you sing and play your guitar. I miss the silly songs you would make up about someone who walked into your room. I miss competing with you on who had better handwriting (You know I won on that one, right?) I miss the competitions to see who can do the most lessons of Math in one day. I miss your laughter and smile. I miss your jokes and humor that made me laugh so often. I miss the funny stories you would post on Xanga. I miss seeing you wear that “Stinky hat”. And, yes, we all remember how much you loved Peanut butter, right? Haha! ;) Or how much you detested mint ice cream, or mint cake or mint brownies or even mint pancakes? ;) haha! Oh, yes, and beavers gnaw on trees, right? ;) There is so much that I miss and will keep on missing until the day I see you again. But I know, however much I miss

Little Time to Write, Before I take Flight

Dear readers out there who read my blog, I’m sure you’ve missed my random thoughts. But my excuse is good. You see, I have to jog, Or do my school work, which there is lots. I have daily chores to do and places to go And life gets busy and starts to fly, (As you very well may already know) And before you know it, a month goes by. Posting on my silly blog gets quite forgotten In all the whirl of these busy days. And I forget all the thoughts I had thoughten, When I get lost in this crazy maze. But when life calms down for just a moment, I remember to take time to write, Maybe I’ll write a letter or encouragement, Cheering others on, in what is right. But off I must go once again. When you see me next I do not know? And that is all I plan on sayin’.

Words of Sunshine

"A word spoken pleasantly is a large spot of sunshine on a sad heart. Therefore, 'Give others the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest.'"  From Streams in the Desert by Mrs. Chas. E. Cowman. May your day be filled with sunshine. God bless you!
