Sunshine Blogger Award

  Summer is such a fun time - and also a busy one. I often find myself running back and forth between school, writing, working horses, caring for pasture land etc. with almost no time in between. But I'm learning to enjoy it, no matter how crazy and stressful it sometimes is. It isn't difficult to spot a thousand blessings in the life God has given me as long as I have eyes to see it. Embrace the busyness and grasp the fun out of life!
   So, for the fun of it, I'm doing the Sunshine Blogger Award, which I was tagged to do by Laura who blogs at Flowers in my Basket

These are a Few of my Favorite Things...

So, with Spring upon me, writing regularly has become difficult. I will still attempt to be blogging bi-weekly, but can't resist enjoying life outdoors while I can! To have a little fun with the beginning of Summer under way, I decided to do a post that I was tagged in by one of my favorite bloggers (who also happens to be my sister) - Alice at My Golden Journey.

Child-Like Faith

"But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein." - Luke 18:16-17
Sometimes, I think we forget what it means to have faith like a child. We forget because a child thinks too simply.

Singing More Than Words

   Not long ago, I heard a pastor quote the words of A.W. Tozer who said: "Christians don't tell lies, they just go to church and sing them."
   When I worship, I often don't pay attention to the words that I'm singing. They are familiar, old hymns that I could sing in my sleep, with words like "Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine", "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound", or "Victory in Jesus, my Savior forever". I don't always listen to the lines that role off my tongue, I just follow the words. I don't always mean the things I so readily sing, I am only following the music.
