Pictures, Places, and the Creator's Fingerprint




Hey! So I'm a little obsessed with looking up places that I think are just gorgeous (and boy is there a LOT of those places!) Here are just a few.




Gold Coast, Australia
                                             Gold Coast Australia. Is this place not incredible?





                                      Hawaii!! That's drop dead gorgeous, I don't care who you are!!




                      Like a giant swimming pool. Why can't South Carolina have beaches like this???


 But.......If you're not the beachy type...........




                                                    Switzerland. Too gorgeous for words!!




                                            How would you like this to be your front yard??



                                       Grand Canyon. I hope to see this place one day!



So where would you like to live? Oh, and one thought. Isn't it just mind blowing that there are people out there that truly believe that the places above were created by random chance? I just can't even comprehend that thought. The Creator's fingerprint is on everyone of them, as well as on you and me.

Blessings,

Peyton

Long lost blogger is back..........


http://definitelyfilipino.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/writinggirl11.jpg


Whoa! It's been a REALLY long time since I've posted on here, most of my followers have probably died of old age already! Just kidding, not that long. But you know once the blog craze kinda wares off it's hard to find things to blog about.:) Anywho, I'm back to blogging (Hopefully!) Okay, so some updates since last time.

1.  I'm fifteen (have been since October)
2.  I just got out of the hospital two weeks ago. In December my kidneys shut down from a strep infection and I have been in and out of the hospital four times. Now after two months on really high doses of prednisone I'm doing a little better, but the recovery process is slow. I'm warning y'all to flee from strep like it's the plague!:) Funny thing is I never even knew that I had it in the first place!!
3. Started new school year. I'm a freshmen! Yay! By now I'm almost done though!:) It's funny, in the hospital everyone asked me if I hated high school. As soon as I told them that I loved it and that I was homeschooled they would say, "Aha, that's why. You can't get bullied or anything at home!" I would answer, "Yep, and because I have such great teachers that will not let them get away with it!"

Long lost blogger........

long time no see!


  Hey guys! What have you all been up to in my absence? Wow, I've been gone for a long time! I haven't really done much this summer, but I've been very busy somehow, if you know what I mean:) Since that didn't make sense, let me explain. When Veritas let out in May, I was so tired of writing that I didn't want to think of typing one more word for a REALLY long time.;) Then my dad and brother went on a two week mission trip to Uganda, which by the way was awesome! Then we kind of just had those long summer days where you go to the beach, play outside, or go on road trips. Just typical summer things. Let's just say summer snuck up on me too fast, and all of the sudden it's time for school again! I'm a freshmen now, which means tons a LOT more writing! But in spite of this, I'm ready to start blogging again! Let me hear YAY! from y'all!  Just kidding!:) I am glad to be back though.
   To get back to writing, I thought it would be kind of cool to start memorizing portions of the Bible as a group. We could come up with a verse to memorize, then practice it for a week. By the end of the week, everyone could recite (by commenting) the verse. I just thought this would be a good way to keep each other accountable for memorizing God's Word. Anyway, just let me know if anyone is interested.

 Have a great wonderful week!

Or is it most appealing to just laze around the house? 


Let me know in a comment:)

Quotes by Jim Elliot

  

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”


“Forgive me for being so ordinary while claiming to know so extraordinary a God.”


“We are so utterly ordinary, so commonplace, while we profess to know a Power the Twentieth Century does not reckon with. But we are "harmless," and therefore unharmed. We are spiritual pacifists, non-militants, conscientious objectors in this battle-to-the-death with principalities and powers in high places. Meekness must be had for contact with men, but brass, outspoken boldness is required to take part in the comradeship of the Cross. We are "sideliners" -- coaching and criticizing the real wrestlers while content to sit by and leave the enemies of God unchallenged. The world cannot hate us, we are too much like its own. Oh that God would make us dangerous!”

“If we are the sheep of His pasture, remember that sheep are headed for the altar.”

PLEASE Read This!!

   "Then I will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from me you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave me no food; I was thirst and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' Then they also will answer Him saying, 'Lord, when did I see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'

[pic2.jpg]"Then He will answer them saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do unto Me."                                                                        Matthew 25:41-45
