My Darling

Recently we celebrated my darling Kennedy's 6th birthday!!! I absolutely adore this girl! She is an absolute joy! She loves life! We have so much fun together and already have meaningful talks of how to love others and live her life for God's glory! I really think this girl is quite amazing! Here are some pics of her birthday celebration during her first trip to American Girl!

Thank you Heavenly Father for the gift of my children! Thank you for the growth you have given me through being their Mama. I pray that all my children will love you and desire to live their life for you from an early age. I pray for Kennedy; that she will be a godly young girl/woman who loves you and your word. Please allow Kennedy and me to keep a tight bond of friendship as she grows in maturity. Thank you again Lord for her life, may she yield herself to you always, Amen.

The Saviour

This summer I have had such a wonderful time writing a Bible Study on the book of Romans. Periodically throughout the study, I am including some puritan prayers from the book Valley of Vision, A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions. Here is one beautiful prayer to echo.


Thou hast given me a Saviour,
produce in me a faith to live by Him, to make Him all my desire, all my hope, all my glory.

May I enter Him as my refuge,
build on Him as my foundation, walk in Him as my way, follow Him as my guide, conform to Him as my example,
receive His instructions as my prophet, rely on His intercession as my high priest, obey Him as my king.

May I never be ashamed of Him or His words,
but joyfully bear His reproach, never displease Him by unholy or imprudent conduct, never count it a glory if I take it patiently when buffeted for a fault, never make the multitude my model, never delay when thy Word invites me to advance.

May thy dear Son preserve me from this present evil world,
so that its smiles never allure, nor its frowns terrify, nor its vices defile, nor its errors delude me.

May I feel that I am a stranger and a pilgrim on earth,
declaring plainly that I seek a country, my title to it becoming daily more clear, my meetness for it more perfect,
my foretastes for it more abundant, and whatsoever I do
may it be done in thy Saviour’s name.
