You’re Always There for Me


When the world comes crashing in
And chaos rules my mind,
I turn my heart to you, Lord,
And pure, sweet peace I find.


You lift me out of trouble
You comfort me in pain;
You nourish, heal and cleanse me,
Like cool, refreshing rain.


In times of joy and bliss,
When things are going right,
You lift me even higher,
And fill me with delight.


You listen to my prayers;
You hear my every plea;
I’m safe because I know
You’re always there for me.

It is just now starting to stick to the ground though.I am so glad! You really have to live in Charleston to understand why though! Maybe I will post some fun pics later. I hope you all have a good week,

Easy Paper Snowflakes!!

Supplies needed:

* White paper
* Scissors
* Optional: A protractor
* Optional: Glitter or glitter glue
* For a card: A piece of colored construction paper and glue



Real snowflakes all have six sides, so the first part of this project involves folding a piece of paper into sixths.
Fold a piece of paper in half.
Fold over one side, then the other, to make two 60 degree folds. You can do this by eye, or you can use a protractor. This is a good exercise in geometry and measuring angles.
Cut off the edges of the paper in an arc - this makes a circle (if you were to unfold the paper).
Cut a lot of the paper away.
Unfold your snowflake carefully.

Optional: Decorate your snowflake with glitter or glitter glue.

Glue your snowflake onto a folded piece of construction paper for a great winter card.

Hello every one! Since this is Thanks Giving month I wanted to do a post about things that I am thankful for. So here are just some of the blessing God has given:





1. Jesus!



2. Being able to have and read God's Word



3. My family



4. For all the things that I am blessed with that many people don't have, like a home, Christian parents, lots of siblings, clothes, food, a car, electricity and so on.



5. All the things I take for granted, like health, being able to run and play, eye sight, being able to hear, being able to speak, understand, and God's constant protection over those who are his.



Oh how abundant is your goodness , which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of mankind!

Psalms 31:19

Little Farah Beth!!

Can I keep Farah Beth 3 forever???? I love her sooooo much!! OK, believe it or not my dad can sound just like Elmo! Well the other day Farah Beth had to stay home with mom and sick little Josiah while the rest of us went to sing at my Great Grandmothers church and she couldn't come. So any way, to make her feel better he called home and acted like he was Elmo. After he got off the phone Farah Beth said " Mama Elmo called me"! So ever since dad will call her and she will sing songs for him! Farah Beth has never liked the little show but ever since " Elmo called her" she has loved it! It's so cuit! That little girl is unbelievably smart and it's kind of funny she hasn't figured it out yet. She is always making us laugh and make life so interesting!

Some good Poems

Save Me

Save me from myself, Lord;Save me from my need To always run my life, Lord,To control my every deed.
Save me from my pride, Lord,My focus on just me;Help me learn to serve, Lord;Show me how to be.
Save me from the world, Lord,When tempting things entice;Remind me of eternity With You, in paradise.
I give my life to you, Lord My every need you fill;I’m resting in my faith, Lord;You saved me, and you always will.

By Joanna Fuchs


More like Jesus


Let us be more like Jesus In everything we do;Let’s live a life of service, A life that’s fresh and new.
Let’s relinquish worldly things,And not be slaves to fashion;Let’s fill our hearts with love,Forgiveness and compassion.
Yes, let’s be more like Jesus,Being always in God’s will,For if Jesus’ light shines through us,Our earthly purpose we’ll fulfill.

By Joanna Fuchs


I just really liked these and wanted to share them,

John and Betty Stam

Hello every one! Last night in family worship my dad was reading a book called "By Their Blood" and on of the family's were John and Betty Stam. They were martyrs over in China. It was an amazing story about how the gave their life's even until the end. Their story influenced many people including a man named E.H. Hamilton and he wrote this poem:


"Afraid?"


Afraid? Of what?To feel the spirit's glad release?To pass from pain to perfect peace,The strife and strain of life to cease?Afraid? Of that?


Afraid? Of what?Afraid to see the Saviour's face,To hear His welcome, and to trace,The glory gleam from wounds of grace,Afraid? Of that?

Afraid? Of what?A flash - a crash - a pierced heart;Brief darkness - Light - O Heaven's art!A wound of His a counterpart!Afraid? Of that?

Afraid? Of what?To enter into Heaven's rest,And yet to serve the Master blessed?From service good to service best?Afraid? Of that?

Afraid? Of what?To do by death what life could not -Baptize with blood a stony plot,Till souls shall blossom from the spot?Afraid? Of that?

This poem was written by E.H. Hamiliton,after hearing of the death of his missionary colleague Jack Vinson.Vinson was martyred in 1931 and showed no fear of death to his Chinese captors, telling them,"Kill me, if you wish. I will go straight to God".



Their story is really amazing please read it.

However, the Communists caught up to the Stams and when the soldiers did, they demanded all the money the Stams had; and it was handed over. The Communists then arrested John and took him to their headquarters. They left Betty, their baby, Helen, the maid and the cook in the Stams' house. The soldiers later came back an took Betty and Helen. The maid and cook begged to go along, but they were threatened to be shot if they did. Betty and Helen were taken to be with John.
That night, John Stam wrote a letter to CIM authorities, but it was never delivered. The letter was found later bundled up in some of Helen's clothes. It stated that the Stams were being held by the Communists for a ransom of $20,000. John Stam also wrote to the mission authorities of how he and his wife had been captured, then wrote, "Philippians 1:20: 'May Christ be glorified whether by life or death.'"
John, Betty and Helen were then taken to the local prison where some of the prisoners were released to make room for the Stams. In the midst of hustle and bustle, Helen started crying, and a soldier suggested that they kill her, since she was only "in their way". Then one of the prisoners who had just been released asked why they should kill the innocent baby. The soldiers turned to him and asked if he was willing to die for the foreign baby. The man was hacked to pieces for Helen in front of the Stams' eyes. Thus, Helen was allowed to live.
Martyrdom at Miaosheo
The next morning, the Stams were forced to march 12 miles with the soldiers, to the town of Miaosheo. The group stopped for a night, and Betty was allowed to tend to Helen; but in fact, Betty instead hid her daughter in the room inside a sleeping bag. The very next morning, John and Betty were being marched down the streets of Miaosheo to meet their deaths. Curious onlookers lined both sides of the streets. A Chinese shopkeeper stepped out of the crowd and talked to the Communists, trying to persuade them not to kill the Stams. The soldiers ordered the man back into the crowd, but he wouldn't step back. The soldiers then invaded his house where they found a Chinese copy of the Holy bible and a hymnbook. He was then led alongside the Stams to be killed as well, for being a Christian. After marching for a short while longer, John was ordered to kneel, and he was beheaded. Betty and the shopkeeper were killed moments later.
Rescue and aftermath
The baby, Helen, was found two days later by a Chinese pastor who took her home and took care of her. Reverend Lo Ke-chou and his wife then took the baby girl to her maternal grandparents, Reverend Charles Ernest Scott and his wife, Clara, who were also missionaries in China. The Stams' daughter later came to the United States and was raised by her aunt and uncle, George and Helen Mahy. As for Helen's parents, a small group of Christians found their bodies and buried them on a hillside. The Stams' gravestones read:
John Cornelius Stam, January 18, 1907, "That Christ may be glorified whether by life or by death." Philippians 1:20
Elisabeth Scott Stam, February 22, 1906, "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21
December 8, 1934, Miaosheo, Anhui, "Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life." Revelation 2:10
The story of their martyrdom was much publicized and inspired many to become missionaries.

Bible skit

Hello every one! Last week my dad asked us kids to put on a bible skit about how Hezekiah got sick because we were reading about it during family devotions. It was really fun!!!! We made a huge stage with curtains that we opened with ropes (probably not to professional:-). Isaac was the narrator, Noah was Hezekiah, Gracie and Treasure were his servants and I was Isaiah because know on wanted to memorise his lines. OK, I might have a pretty good memory but I wouldn't make a good actress as far as being serious goes! We all pretty much couldn't keep the giggles away except for Isaac, well Noah actually played off pretty well. Any way I encourage you to do this with your little siblings because you will never forget the story!

We rescued 2 baby deer!!!!!

Hello every one! Yesterday we had to go some where and my dad was supposed to be home but he was late. When he got home, he told us that he had been holding an abandoned 10 day old baby deer! (He works out on Seabrook Island golf course.) Anyway he felt bad the rest of the day. Then, that afternoon, when me and my brothers and sisters were outside, my dad said that we would go back and look for him because he was so helpless and sick. Well we got there and we looked all around and we couldn't find him. We were all praying that we would find him because we knew he would die if he didn't eat. Anyway, we were getting in the car and my dad was going to pick some black berries for us when he heard him crying again. So he looked and finally found him! He is really tiny and was very sick last night but seems fine today. We are going back and forth between the names John Deer and Bamby for him, but we can't decide. Well anyway, my dad got another call from his assistant that there was another baby out there that he had found! So my dad and I went out there and picked him up. They are both bucks! He looks alot like the other one except just a little bigger! We named him Spunky because when I picked him up he would yell and squirm. Last night we went to Pet Smart and got a small animals bottle for him. We feel like we have two new babies because they have to eat every 3 hours. Hunter made up a joke this morning and said " we are on Noah's ark because we have two by two's, 2 dogs, two birds, two rabbits and now two dear," and my dad said "yea, that's because we have an obedient Noah! " We are going to bring them to an animal shelter soon where they will care for them until they are old enough to be set free in the wild. It's so fun to care for them even if it's only for a day or two. Maybe I'll post some pictures on Peyton's Picture spot.

PS. please tell me if you like John Deer or Bamby best.

I am going to try to start posting a verse on this blog each day, some of them from my morning bible study. Well the one I wanted to post right now is one of my favorites. It is Hebrews 4:12. " For the word of the Lord is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and is the discern er of the thought and intentions of the heart". I really like this verse because some times if I have done something wrong and I will sit down and read my bible and a verse pops up that totally makes me feel terrible for my action. I think this verse is good for every one to memorize especially the end.

2nd Timothy 2:24-26

Hello every one!! Today I wanted to post about a verse I read in my bible reading this morning. The verse was 2nd Timothy 2: 24-26, " And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth." Now I don't know about every one but we to argue in our house and I am a part of it a lot. When I read the part about how the Lords servant should not quarrel I was convicted. I am really starting to love 2 Timothy because it has sooooo many things that I can read that make me think and pray to change. Any way I thought I would share that with all my readers.

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Hello every one, hope you have enjoy your week! I just wanted to tell every one that I have a new blog, Convicting Poems. You can find it on my side bars.

My special family

I know I have not posted in so long, I have just been so busy!! I wanted to write something special about each of my wonderful siblings and 2 wonderful parents.


My daddy: He never ever gets tired of giving big bear hugs and playing with us kids, even when he is tired. He loves each and every one of us. He loves momma VERY much and I am just so glad that I have such wonderful parents who love each other and us but love Jesus most of all. I can not imagine having a better father than he, in all the world!!




Momma: My momma is one of my best friend after Jesus. She is so loving towards all of her children and cares for them so much that she is willing to stay home with them. She is so amazing and home schools 5 children, Hunter 9th grade, me 6th, Noah and Isaac 3rd, Anna Grace 1st and Treasure kinder garden! That is not mention my other 3 siblings, Farah Beth age 3, Josiah age 1 and Eden joy who is 2 months old! I can't imagine what life would be like if there are better parents out there!!

Click (here) to go to my parents blog.


Hunter : Hunter is my wonderful 15 year old brother and one of my best friends. Hunter loves Jesus more than any thing and loves the word of God. He is a brother who you can talk to and who I hardly ever get tired of talking to. He is very smart and is hard working. Hunter, though he is not shy, is mostly quiet but is not afraid to share the Gospel with people. He an amazing brother! Click (here) to go to Hunter's blog






Noah : Noah is the third in our family and is 10 years old. He is a very compassionate and bold boy with a very sweet heart. He loves Jesus and my dad calls him our little "Evangelist". We often lose him in stores and find him sharing the Gospel with some one. He is very creative and We all love him so much.





Isaac : Isaac is my funniest brother who is very sweet. He is 9 years old and is different from all of my other brothers. Hunter and Noah would rather be out in the woods running wild (along with me) where as Isaac likes to stay inside or ride his bike. He is a very smart little boy and we all love him too.






Anna Grace : Anna Grace is such a sweet little girl and was my first little sister. 7 years ago when I was 5 years old I had only 3 brothers and wanted a sister very, very bad. So any way I prayed every night for one and got the very best! Anna is so very sweet and is another one of my best friends. Everyone says we look just alike and I thank God every day for her.




Treasure : God really decided to answer my prayers for after Anna came 3 more sisters!! =Treasure came next and is probably the sweetest person in our family. She is so beautiful and is SOOOO meek and gentle. She is very quiet and is a little shy. She is a precious 5 year old girl who truly is a Treasure!




Farah Beth : Farah Beth is a VERY spunky 3 year old who is such a hoot. We are always laughing around here because of her and some times, well, pulling our hair out, he he. She really is my girl ,but can be bribed away by any thing sweet;) I just guess that's 3 year old! I am so thankful for her little self even when she gets into trouble!




Josiah Courage : Josiah is a very sweet little boy who is 1 year old. I have a feeling Josiah is going to be praying for a little brother as I did, being surrounded by 3 sisters! He loves to dance and is lately a sissy's boy. He is infatuated with any thing in the sky, mostly birds and the stars. He Loves to give kisses, or "dog, dogs" as he calls them because he loves to kiss our dogs on the back and so we would say " oh, you kissed the dog, dog" and he got mixed up. He loves his baby sister and we all adore our adorable little buddy.





Eden Joy : Eden Joy is the last Hardwick in our family. She is SO adorable. She has BIG blue eyes and brown hair. She is sweet but also very rotten and loves to be held. But what can you expect when there are 10 people here to hold her!! So that is my family!!!!!!



God bless,

Peyton Hardwick

I Am a Slave, But Free

                                               I Am a Slave, But Free


                                                             Part 1

                                                    By Peyton Hardwick

  Goellky (Go-el-kee) Saverbar ran wildly across his little hut that his family owned, Africa 1852. The 10 year olds father grabbed his 5-year-old son Tahokay (Tu-hok-a-y) off of his cot, his mother grabbed their 1-year-old daughter Punweea (Pun-we-u) up, and they rushed out of the hut. Slave traders ran every which way grabbing people and chaining them together. Anger surged through Goellky as he saw one man push his cousin into the human line, why? Because they were greedy, spoiled, self-centered brats! He thought clenching his fist. I mean come on, they were there distant relatives, Africans just like them! Goellky then as they were making a dash for the woods and no one seemed to notice the boy saw his only cousin, 6 year old Tea ( Tee-u) just standing there crying as the men shoved her parents into the carts. Goellky suddenly rushed over to the little girl grabbing her arm and pulling away. Goellky had a stab of bitter pane run through him as he saw that his parents had not waited on him, he knew they did not really care much for him at all, mainly because he was not very handsome and was scrawny and small. His father doted over their plump 5 year old and his mother put Punweea over all her children. He was dashing for the woods when suddenly a pair of hands seized his thin shoulders and Tea’s too. They both screamed out in fright, well Tea did, Goellky screamed out in bitter anger. Goellky punched and kicked with all his might and just as the man almost lost his grip on him the man called for a another man that came over with a big whip and CRACK, the big whip wiped across Goellky's bare leg's causing him to sit still so that the man could hand cuff his wrists.



Part 2 coming soon!

 Hello again, I know I put a poem on my blog my last post but I found another very convcting one and had to post it so please read.



  





If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two

If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what you’d do.

Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,

And all the food you’d serve to Him would be the very best,

And you keep assuring Him you’re glad to have Him there

That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.



But when you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door

With arms outstretched in welcome to your heavenly Visitor?

Or would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?

Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they’d been?

Would you turn off the radio and hope He hadn’t heard?

And wish you hadn’t uttered that last, loud, hasty word?



Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?

Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?

And I wonder if the Savior spent a day or two with you,

Would you go right on doing the things you always do?

Would you go right on saying the things you always say?

Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

Would your family conversation keep up its usual pace?

And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace?

Would you sing the songs you always sing, and read the books you read,

And let him know the things on which your mind and spirit feed?

Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you’d planned to go?

Or would you, maybe, change your plans for just a day or so?



Would you be glad to have Him meet your very closest friends?

Or would you hope they’d stay away until His visit ends?

Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?

Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?

It might be interesting to know the things that you would do?

If Jesus Christ in person came to spend some time with you.

You Forgot My Soul

 Here is a poem I read today in my copywork and I just wanted to share it with you. I know Hunter already posted it, but I just wanted my readers to see it. It is really convicting.
You Forgot My Soul



You lived next door to me for years;



We shared our dreams, our joys and tears.



A friend to me you were indeed,



A friend who helped me when in need.







My faith in you was strong and sure.



We had such trust as should endure.



No “words” between us could impose;



Our friends were like – and so, our foes.







What sadness, then, my friend, to find



That, after all, you weren’t so kind;



The day my life on earth did end,



I found you weren’t a faithful friend.







For all those years we spent on earth,



You never talked of second birth.



You never spoke of my lost soul



And of the Christ Who’d make me whole.







I’m lost today eternally



And tell you now my earnest plea.



You cannot do a thing for me –



No words today my bonds will free.







But – do not err, my friend, again –



Do all you can for souls of men.



Plead now with them quite earnestly,



Lest they be cast in hell with me.

A life Of faith Books

There is a series of books that I love and Thought I would share. They are called "A Life of Faith" books . These books are really for Girls. They are totally Christian and are really inspiring, at least for me. There is Kathleen, Elsie, Millie, violet and Layly. Each hereon is amazing and really loves the Lord. My favorite is Elsie Dinsmore, she is like the original from Martha Finly who wrote the book in the late 18 hundreds. These books also have the doll character and I have Elsie, the dolls also have very pretty clothes and accessories. The A life Of Faith program has a website with lots of very fun and interesting stuff. So anyway I really recommend these books for girls!

Snow!!!!!!!!!!!!

It snowed last night here in Charleston! I can hardly believe it! We have been playing in it all morning since 7:00. I have not really seen snow since I was 3! It came down so fast last night and filled up our yard in 10 minuets! We had a snow ball fight, me and Hunter against my dad and 4 other siblings, I felt kind of sorry for Hunter because his only team mate was not a good thrower at all:-) Hope every one is well, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Eden Joy

Eden was born yesterday at 12:41pm!! She is soooo adorable. She has a head full black hair and big blue eyes. Thanks for the prayers, she is very healthy and my mom is doing well. She was 6 pounds and 10 1/2 ounces. Her middle name is Joy. It is going to be hard for me to get used to calling her Eden, the reason being is I have a close friend named Eden. She is coming home tomorrow after noon so I will have some pictures on my other blog,http://http//peytonspicturespot.blogspot.com/ .

cross stitching

For Christmas I got a cross stitching set. I have been working on it the past few days and it is so fun! At first I had no clue as to what to stitch but then my mom had a great idea. My parents are having a really hard time deciding on what to name the baby. They keep shaking on names then a week later shake on a different one. So anyway the idea was that next time they are decisive on a name I can put the name on it and confirm it. I am also going to do a zig- zag border for it. It is the first one I have ever done and it is not perfect, but it is getting better.
