Update


 Hello. So, I am ending my blog break because I just can't seem to break when I choose to take a break. It's kind of funny, really. But for the rest of October there will not be any Wednesday words, like in September. I may pick that up again someday, but not right now.
I ask for prayers for my mom, who just had surgery, and is recovering from that.
I also ask for prayers for me, and that God will establish His will today and tomorrow, and that everything will go well, even if the doors are shut, and not opened.
Thank you!

Though Things Are Falling


I was going about in our back room and caused thing s to fall over. Our cat was eating his food, and though things were falling around him, he didn't flee or move away from his bowl.
We need to be like this in a way. Be calm, even though things are falling. Find our peace in Jesus, and know that though we could run, it's more important to follow through on the task set before us. In the end, we will gain more than if we were running.
However, know when you need to move on, and out of the way sometimes, for it might save your life, and/or the lives of others, or just be better in the long run.
And most of all, pray. :)

Chai Tea Inspired Experiment

Hello! This is what can happen...I take a break from blogging and find things to blog about while I'm supposed to be on break. ☺

So I have this thing for tea, and especially chai! Today, since I couldn't make true chai (I usually just use a tea bag, though, and have never actually made it from scratch ), I made an interesting concoction that was good. Not perfect, but good. ☺
It had pumpkin spice, Constant Comment black tea (I took most of it out of the teabag), pepper, vanilla extract, non airy dry creamer, milk, and brown sugar. I put all of this in loose, and made it in a small pan and strained it before drinking.
So yup! Experimenting can be interesting. ☺ I got some inspo for this from watching a video about chai and also looking at a recipe.
Now you have more of an idea of my kitchen life -- experimenting. 😋
Have a great day! God bless you & yours!

Flowers & Leaves

So, I was inspired, and took some pics. Most of the leaves haven't started fully turning at my house, so I had to find these leaves. :P If I could speed up the trees I might, but oh well. To everything there is a season. :)



Also, I use a lot of free pics on my blog, but I want to start using more of my pictures, though not completely do away with the others. We'll see how it goes, though. I may start putting captions saying that it isn't my pic on some of those ones. Anyway, though, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Hey everyone...

I am going to take a break from blogging here until my October summary post. I may post between now and then, though. I will probably continue updating my bucket list sometimes.

Joshua 1:9 & A Writing From the Past

Joshua 1:9 is one of my favorite verses and it ties into the following.

I found this writing from a while back and want to share it with you. I don't know when I wrote it, but I am guessing between 11-14 or 15. It's edited some.


 "You can't always take the easy road in life. Take the challenge to live as Jesus, Jesus should be your hero, and your role model.
He invites you to live Him, and accept Him as Lord so someday you can live with Him in heaven. And so that more people could be there [in heaven] through your ministry [because you let God work through you to bring people to Him]. The way to give love is to live love.
When Jesus asks you to go through a storm, no matter how big, remember, He will be behind you, to protect you, and in front of you to guide you; He will be there for you, and if you fall, He will catch you. And He will walk beside you, to be your best friend, and have a relationship with you."

Welcome October!

I love Anne With An  An E...Anne of Green Gables...Fall...and especially October!

October! YAY! This is the month that the leaves start to turn here!

Finish my lavender hat (I just need to weave in the ends).
Journal more.
Save $20 more for a mission trip.
Finish Around the World In Eighty Days.
Finish After the Dancing Days.
Write a review for After the Dancing Days.
Make something with pumpkin in it.
Make a pumpkin pie.
Crochet on my blanket (hoping to get it done by the end of November or sooner).
Make 2 gifts for Christmas gifts.

Cross more off my bucket list! Click here to see it.
Accomplish all these things!
Watch the movies:
I hope to write reviews on all these one day, but I don't know when (I might re-write my review for The Magic of Ordinary Days).
These are on my top 5 movies though!

Happy October!
-Amy

Overcomer


Please watch this music video before continuing. It's Mandisa singing "Overcomer."


That's what today's word is: overcomer. This may not literally be a word, but it means a person who overcomes.


God overcame sin, death, sickness, bad thoughts, hurt, OBSTACLES, etc. at the cross.

Because He overcame those things, and offers His victory to me, I am an overcomer if I accept His offer, and choose to be.

I can be overcome by my circumstances.
I can feel sorry for myself.
I can give up.
I can say it's too hard.

OR

I can be an overcomer no matter what my circumstances may be.
I can be confident and know that this won't last forever, and God makes me strong, and will make me stronger through this if I let Him.
I can refuse to give up but instead give it all to God and trust Him, and do what I am supposed to do. So when I fall, I get back up and do what God wants me to.
I can say it's not too hard for God, and live it. I can live in trust, instead of terror.


PLEASE LOOK UP:
Romans 8:28
&
Philippians 4:13
