A Cup of Tea Please.

 Hot, delicious, savory, sweet, amazing tea. I love you. in the morning and before bed.
I love trying all different flavors of teas from white to black tea's, or sweet to savory!
I just love tea! I would say tea is my coffee. 
 
The picture above is a delicious white tea I had this morning.
Its very light in flavor and with a little Stevia, its a great refreshment for the morning.

 The Sweet Harvest Pumpkin black tea is my favorite holiday tea right now!
It literally taste and smell like pumpkin pie, it reminds me a lot of a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks.
SO GOOD! Its Autumn in a cup! You have to try it!

A Daily Christian Checklist.




~ Start each day with God. Spend time in God's Word.
"Either sin will keep you from this book, or this book will keep you from sin."

~Always include prayer. Pray for yourself, your day, your family members, your attitude, your friends, and your walk with God.

~Act like a child of God. This includes how you dress and talk. Also how you treat your family.

~Choose your friends carefully. In the word of George Washington, "It is better to be alone than in bad company."

~Do all things to the glory of God. This includes school work and activities.

~Keep a cool, clear head when it comes to dating. Don't be afraid to wait to date, to say no, to hold out for the right kind of person, and to involve your parents.


The Checklist above is from a book I have mentioned before called "A Young Woman's Guide to Making Right Choices by Elizabeth George."
 This book has truly inspired me to honor God by making better choices in my clothes, friend..ects. I hope the Checklist helps you as much as it has me.

Day 7: A picture of your most treasured item

Hello everyone,
 just want to take a minute and apologize for not blogging and keeping up with my 30 Challenge. I've just been distracted with other things and haven't had time to post anythings. Also my camera's rechargeable batteries aren't working anymore which means I won't be post pictures for awhile. :( So once again I apologize.





Anyway... I was having a-little trouble trying to figure out my most treasure Item.. But then I thought, well, the thing I should treasure the most is the word of God, the Holy Bible. I don't know how I would live without it. Its my guide book for life.
One thing that bugs me though, is that alot of teenagers don't know how important it is to read their bibles.
We are the next generation, someday we may have to stand up for the word of God but how will we do that if we don't know it!
I want to encourge all the young people out there to read your Bibles. Even if its just ten minutes, God will be pleased to see that you care and want to learn how to live a life to please Him. He will bless you! :)

Here are a few reasons why its good to read your bible:

~ The bible keeps you from bad behavior.
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee." Psalms 119:11

~The bible leads you in the right direction.
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalms 119:105

~The bible guides you in the truth and prepares you to serve others.
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be prefect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:16-17

~The bible sharpens your discernment and judgement.
" For the word of God is quick, and powerful,and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12

All of the reasons listed above are from a book I'm reading by Elizabeth George called, "A Young Woman's Guide to Making Right Choices." I defiantly recommend reading her book It has truly change the way I think and handle things.


 Read God's Word. Start anywhere. The only wrong way to read the bible is to not read it.

Day 6: A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day


I would love to trade places with Rick Steves.
Staring in his own T.V show, he tours all around the world, visiting beautiful locations, staying at resorts, and learning about different cultures and foods!
He also goes biking, hiking and kayaking through beautiful country.
If I traded places with him, I would have so much fun, learning and trying different things.
I would also love to take pictures of everything! :D

Rachel's arms look to long.
Abel looks to excited.
Chloe looks like she scared with a smile on her face.

Day 4: A picture of your night.


I'm usually watching movies/tv shows off Netflix with my sisters at night.
Dirty jobs, Say Yes To The Dress, My fair wedding,(I love wedding shows) H2O (why not. lol), Random chick-flicks and stuff.

Although sometimes When there's nothing to watch, I just like to relax in my bed and read a book.
Right now I'm reading a series called "Sisters of Isis" by Lynne Ewing.
 Its about three girls from modern day find out they are descendants of Egyptian pharaohs, powerful ancestors who have given them magical gifts and powers of transformation.
At first, they don't believe it, but after evil forces threaten the three girls world, they have to learn how to defend  themselves by using their powers.

Day 2

 The person you have been closest with the longest.


My cousin's.
Garrett, Aiden, and Connor.
I feel I can be my-self around them.
We always get each others cheesy jokes and random thoughts. (Well most of the time. lol)
Oh and the conversation on the phone are pretty entertaining.
I miss them!
I wish they lived closer so I could visit them more, I usually see them probably once every 5-6 months. :(
I love them so much and I cherish the times I do get to be with them! <3

Goodbye Freshman Year...HELLO SUMMER!!

Summer.
Need I say anymore.
its that little piece of freedom, the joyful feeling of not having to worry about memorizing a million things for a test.
 

I can wake-up and say: "I Can Sleep More!" Without feeling the urge that I need to get up to do school.


There's so many things I have planned to do:
Go on a trip to Indiana to see my best friend (Katelyn) who I have not seen in four years!
Read lots of books (maybe :p)
Work on my Sewing, knitting..ects
Paint my room.
Post more blogs.
Go to the beach and get a tan! lol .
oh and work a part time job which I recently got. : )


My goal is to not get bored.


So I have totally  lost track of time and I need to get some sleep,


But....Before I end this post, I just want to say thanks to God for blessing me with a good freshman year, 
and I am looking forward to see what plans He has for me this Summer and the school years to come!
