lovely verses :)

The site I got this from said it's an Indian wedding dress,
but I thought it fit the verses rather well. :)
 It's really beautiful, don't you think?

10 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
Forget your people and your father's house.

11 Let the King be enthralled by your beauty;
honor Him, for he is your Lord.

12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift,tpeople of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber;
her gown is interwoven with gold.

14 In embroidered garments she is led to the King;
her virgin companions follow her—
those brought to be with her. {NIV Psalm 45:10-15}

I love these verses <3

In His Image


                  Just today, I was thinking of my looks. I thought to myself, "UGLY!" I remembered how I must have looked with my frizzy hair flying everywhere as I ran yesterday (mind you, that is not a everyday occurrence, only a once a week kind of thing). How I must have looked later when I put my hair up in  those ridiculous pig tales.

But then, I remembered. I was made in God's image. I was made in God's image. I was made in God's image. Do you understand that?
...God made humans in His image reflecting His very nature. ~{part of} Genesis 9:6 The Message
I'm made in the image of GOD!!!! Not the in the image of a monkey, not in the image of a horse, in the image of GOD!!! I'm just, well, in awe of the fact that the Lord loves us so much that He decided to create the entire human race in his image. Okay, now I'm going to go off on a little money trail, here.-Everyone was made in God's image, people. This is including people who have mental and/or physical disabilities. It also includes the babies that aren't born yet. I'll tell you right now that that I believe everyone should have a chance in this world, people with mental and physical disabilities, and unborn little babies.- 

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.~Psalm 148:14

So, when I'm saying that I'm ugly, I'm basically saying to God, "You aren't really that beautiful,  Lord, and I don't like how you made me."     
I hope that that's the last thing you would ever want to say to God! But, some days I still look in the mirror and sigh, "I wish I was prettier..."  And then, for some reason one of those two verses {Genesis 9:6 or Psalm 148:14} always pops into my head. :) Amazing, right? {Does anyone else ever get super excited when a verse pops into your head at just the right moment? I do. :D}

I don't know if my point was really clear, but, what I meant by all that was, You're beautiful. We are daughters of the King, so let's keep our heads high and remember, we're beautiful; we're princess'.
                                                 Mirror- Barlow Girl    :)

God Bless, Girlies!

Jostie Flicks

Have y'all ever heard of Jostie Flicks?  It's run by three sibling homeschoolers. {I had to mention the homeschooler part somewhere!:) They film short videos that are usually very {in my opinion} funny. :) This is one of my favorites,

                                      A Suitors Tale
The humor is rather, umm...silly. :)  It's not for people with a "mature" sense of humor. :)
The videos are always clean and my siblings and I anxiously await each new video. :)

Have a good day. <3
 Love ya, girlies!

PS: I'm feeling rather smiley today. Could you tell? :)

The thoughts going through my brain {have fun delving through it all!}

I guess this post will just be a random one...I'll type anything that comes into my head :P {Be afraid, be VERY afraid}
  • I {finally!!!} got to watch Tangled today thanks to my awesome Daddy who got it from Redbox :)

  • Thank goodness for Spell Check :)
  • I like weird lumpy wool yarn :)
  • The Lottery {by Shirley Jackson} is an absolutely terrible story... *shudder*
  • I like happy endings
  • Edgar Allen Poe must've been a little {...or a lot...} wonky
  • You know what I mean? Writing a story about a crazy person who kills an innocent old man?!?!?!
  • But then again, maybe that was just his writing style...maybe he wasn't actually as creepy and wonky as I think he was.
  • I can be rather judgemental of dead authors
  • Sometimes I yell at old dead authors of the Bible {like, for example, PAUL} because I don't like what they wrote
  • Have you ever noticed that Paul had a very distinctive writing style?
  • I kinda wish the keys on this computer were pink
  • They would be so pretty!!!
  • The keys would be pink and the letters/numbers would be a pretty brown :D
  • Talking to Jesus keeps me sane.
  • Have you ever read The Anybodies?
  • It's a really cute story
  • NCIS is tonight :)
  • Thanks soooo much for the comments y'all have written :)
  • The reason I haven't replied to them is that I really don't know what to reply
  • So if you are wondering if I even read it, yes I read each and every one and YESSSS I absolutely LOVE getting them:)

Definition of love

What comes to your mind when you think of love? Maybe you think of your parents, how they provide for you and teach you. Maybe you're thinking of your knight in shining armor, your true love, on bended knee with a proposal. {<3} Or, maybe you even think of Jesus. The only one who will love you forever, the one who loves you now and is pursuing you. The one who died so that you could live. All because of love.
Webster dictionary says this about love:

a : unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another: as (1) : the fatherly concern of God for humankind (2) : brotherly concern for others b :a person's adoration  of God. (3)Affection and tenderness felt by lovers.
But I've found a much better definition of LOVE and I think y'all have heard it or read it before. :)
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

 Love never fails. ~1 Corinthians 13:4-8 {NIV}

Don't you just love {no pun intended!} reading that? It's so...sweet. I don't know about you, but sometimes when I read these verses {as well as the entire chapter} I replace the word love with Jesus. When you get done reading this, please go and read the whole chapter of 1 Corinthians 13. It's a really good chapter :)
I'll come back to these verses some day and write a more in depth post about 'em. But for now, I'll just leave you with this. :)
                                           It goes along with those ^ verses up there as well as
                                           And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
                                                      But the greatest of these is love. ~1Corinthians 13: 13 {NIV}

My Transformation Story {sounds so dramatic!}

Heya Girlies! No this post isn't about how I turned from an alien princess to a human or any thing, it's the story of how I became an actual Christ Follower. :)
 I hope you can dredge through this post without pictures, as I couldn't find any that fit :)    
At the ripe ol' age of four and a half, I asked Jesus to forgive me for my sins and to come into my heart. The next day when I went to preschool, my mom let me wear a tiara :) because, as she said, I was now a princess. :) I had fun explaining to every one in my class and later that night at church that "I am princess!"  I was so very proud of my new title.
But, after a week or two, I just sort of got over it and continued living my life the way I wanted to. I wasn't a super bad little girl, but I still had my moments. I would talk back to my parents (and in return get paddled ;); steal candy from our candy tin a home and from my own teacher{I used to go to a private Christian school}!!! But also, I would lie. I'd get my reading assignment for that night and I was supposed to read it then have my mom sign the little slip of paper to say that I read it. But I didn't read it. I would just tell my mom that I had read it so she would sign it. 
Getting "saved" sooo did not change me.
I lived like that up until a couple years ago when I discovered a few blogs by Christian girls. I had never heard of people actually living their life for Jesus!  I had never really considered being able to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I mean, sure, I prayed sometimes. Then one day something just snapped inside of me.
I started to pray. At first, I didn't know what to pray about, so I just  told God about my day, about what I had been learning from people like Miss Raquel and Miss Lucia (sorry, I don't have a link to her blog anymore). As I grew older, I also grew in faith :). I realized Jesus wasn't just that barefooted dude wearing a dress on the flannel graph board; He was my Saviour, my Lord and my Friend. :)
I've grown so much in Jesus {as well as height!} since that day I started praying {and reading the Bible, I do that too! :)}. I've learned from my parents and grandparents, who, even though I hadn't noticed before, really are passionate about living their lives for their Lord.  I really am praying that you girls might learn more about Jesus and be able to grow in Him through this blog. :)
