Blessings in my Life

Day 11: Write about five blessings in your life

1. My quickly shifting moods

This part of me doesn’t always seem like a blessing, because it has been the cause of my general confusion of how I really feel. Yet, this constant change of moods is a blessing, because it helps me to move on. I can never stay sad for too long, because my mood is nearly always lifted when I wake up in the morning and remember that the world is beautiful.

2. Books

I have read so many books and they have taught me so much. They are a definite blessing in my life. I don’t know what I’d do without them.

3. Writing

I love knowing what I plan on doing for the rest of my life, but this blessing goes beyond that. Whether or not I make any money on writing I will always love it. I love writing because it’s my passion. I don’t love it because it might make me rich or famous, or because it has dozens of money-making careers connected with it.

4. Family

My family has taught me all about life, happiness, and love. However, my family is also a blessing because of the support they give to me without me even realizing it half the time. Family is such an important part of my life, because they love me unconditionally and act like it as well.

5. Friends

What would I do without those friends in my life that have stretched me beyond what I thought was possible, stuck by me in all of my tween angst, and love me for who I am?

6. Learning

Learning was my second love (just behind reading), and I don’t think I’ve ever stopped loving it since I began. School is structured, but because I’m home schooled I get to structure it however I want (for the most part). I don’t just mean school though, I mean all kinds of learning. I’ve been learning a great bit lately, about life and growing up. I’ve been learning what it means to think for myself, convey my ideas and beliefs in a coherent way, and appreciate everything that God has blessed me with. πŸ™‚

“Fallish” Things

School is back in my life again and with it comes schedules, a quiet house, and a lot of learning. I won’t complain, because I love school dearly. It’s always been a friend to me. Of course, with school comes autumn and chilly weather. I couldn’t have imagined autumn two weeks ago, in that dreadfully humid weather, but now I can. On Sunday morning I was pleasantly surprised to find that the air smelled like autumn. It wasn’t cool and dry, but was faintly spicy. Yes, autumn is coming. I shall miss the warm weather and yes, the humidity as well, but I am looking forward to “fallish” things:

  • Colorful leaves
  • cooler weather
  • apple picking
  • more school πŸ™‚
  • youth group

Ahhh… yes, autumn is a pleasant season. School has returned, cooler days are coming, and the world keeps spinning around. Glorious world, beautiful life! I can’t believe that I am living, right now, inΒ this beautiful place. πŸ™‚

Candy Cane Smiles

Today has been a tiring day. I feel like I’ve been saying that every day lately and I just want to let you know that this will probably continue well into July. Summer is a crazy, energy-sucking time. πŸ™‚ Summer is also a ton of fun though. Don’t think I’m complaining. πŸ˜‰

What I’m Thankful For: June 16, 2o16

  1. I am thankful for VBS and the chance I get this week to share the gospel with so many kids.
  2. I am thankful for AlexandriaΒ who has been so kind and supportive of my blog. I really enjoy reading her comments. πŸ™‚
  3. I’m thankful for the candy cane that I just found hidden in my bucket of pens on my desk.
  4. I’m thankful for my beautiful ukulele.

That’s my thankful list. Do you like my candy cane smile? No, it isn’t from Christmas (but it might be from my birthday in January).

Thank You Relient K

My first thankful list

1. Today was a long day, but a good one. It helps to remember that I don’t have to live for tomorrow. Today is today and that is the only day I have to live for. One step at a time or you’ll trip. ☺

2. When times get tough and I can’t think of positives, I always remember life. Life is an amazing gift. I get to live today. I breathe the air and my heart is beating. I get to live today and that’s something that I can never forget to thank God for.

Collapsible Lung (Relient K) is a great song. I’ve been listening to it a lot. It inspired the two things on my thankful list. 😊 Thank You Relient K.
