Hey! You may be wondering how I’m posting this, while we’re on a trip far away from our computer… Well, the pure and simple truth is… this post is scheduled! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m actually writing this on the Saturday, May 25. So, by the time you read this, it will be about a week and a half later than now. (That was a strange sentence… XD)

Anyway, I was inspired to this post by Hannah, who did a post like this recently. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really enjoyed making these aesthetics a lot! I made one for each color in the rainbow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Life Update!!

Standard

It’s time for another update on our lives! ๐Ÿ˜€ I would normally wait until the end of April, but since I’m not gonna be here then… Well, I’ll explain in a later post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, here are some of the recent event at our house. ๐Ÿ™‚

A visit from our Grandparents

Last week my Dad’s parent’s, from Colorado, came over to our house for a few days. It was a very good time, and it was great to see them again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Quotes from siblings

Philip (5): In 100 billion years, will I be dead?

Susy (4): I’m on a diet. I can only eat the things mom and dad serve me!


We also had friends over last week from Canada, the Friesons. We had a really amazing few hours with them! It was awesome to speak with kids my own age in English for a change…! XD ๐Ÿ˜€ ;P (There is a girl named Rosy, and whenever someone calls her or my name, we both turn around. It’s awesome!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค )

We had a great time time of fellowship with them, singing hymns and reading the Word together. All the kids went outside and played Nazis and Jews. It was awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€

Visiting


Other than that, the only thing that has happened since last Sunday especially, is that we have all gotten sick… like, sick. ๐Ÿค’๐Ÿคงย Like, miserable in bed sick… Like, I-felt-like-my-head-was-about-to-explode sick… ๐Ÿ˜ญย Anyway, we are recovering now, thankfully! At least I can sing now. Well, kinda.ย I won’t mention that I probably sound like a chocking goose…ย  Singing was one of the things I missed most, being sink. I couldn’t even talk clearly… XD I can now though, so. ๐Ÿ™‚

Life is Hard, But God is Good

Standard
Life is Hard, But God is Good

Life is Hard, But God is God.

~Anne Beiler

When I first saw this quote, I really, really liked it. I wrote it down in my journal, and it has been an encouragement to me the last few months. It reminds me that even when life seems too hard to bear, and when circumstance are difficult, God is still with me, and He cares. Because He’s still God! He always has been, and always will be. He’s the Alpha and the Omega- the Beginning and the End. And everything in between.

LIFE-IS-HARD

He has all power, and we can trust Him with our lives. He knows what is best for us, even more than we, or any one else, could ever know! So, when things are in life are not going as we plan, or we’re going to tough trials, we can always depend on Him, because guys… He seriously knows what He’s doing!

Another Quiz for You!

First off, I just wanted to mention that our committee story is officially named Code Name Pizza Box! (Sorry Parker!!!)

There is a new page on my blog called Committee Stories, where you can go to find all the committee stories we do. And hopefully we can do another soon! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, I made another quiz for you today! ๐Ÿ˜€ This one is about Hymns. How well do you really know them? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Some of these questions might be easy, and some of them might be… Really hard! ๐Ÿ˜‰

A few days ago, I thought it’d be lots of fun to give y’all a video tour of our yard! ๐Ÿ˜€ And, here it is! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you enjoy!

And, I was also thinking it would be really fun to make a “Day in my Life” video someday! ๐Ÿ˜€

And before I leave, and so that this won’t be the shortest post in the history of Rosy’s Writings… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Random Piece of Randomness

So, a few days ago, my friends and I were discussing (through chatting) where nowhere is. (A very deep and serious conversation indeed.) But, we couldn’t figure it out. So, I did what any desperate curious person would do. I googled it. “Where is nowhere?” Aaaaand… I found it! It’s crazy, but there really is a city in Oklahoma, called Nowhere!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ XD

Seriously, I’d love to go to nowhere….. So I could tell my friends that I packed up, and drove to Nowhere… XD!!!!! That’s so awesome!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I’m sure a lot more happened in March, I’m jut not thinking of it right now. But yeah, there was at least an idea! And I’m really looking forward to April, and the coming months! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do any of you have birthdays in March? Have you read or listened to any lamplighter books? If so, which is your favorite?ย 

My first A Cappella!

Standard

I’ve been wanting to make an a cappella video for quite a while, but have never gotten around to it. Until Saturday! ๐Ÿ˜€ Last Saturday I finally decided I was going to make an a cappella video that day. Fist though, I had to figure out what song to singโ€ฆ I flipped through the hymnal for a while and finally came across the song Freely, Freely, and decided that it would sound pretty good in a cappella. No matter that I didnโ€™t hardly even know the singโ€ฆ I mean, Iโ€™d heard it, and even sung it before, but by no means did I have the words memorized! xD

So, I spent Saturday morning learning the words, and had it pretty much learned by that afternoon. (Itโ€™s not a hard song to learn.) I went over to our guest house so that I (probably!) wouldnโ€™t have kids talking to me or asking me questions every few minutes, lol! XD

After maybeโ€ฆ an hour and a half maybe, I had all the recordings recorded. ๐Ÿ˜€ After that, I came back into the house, and put them all together on the computer. It turned out a lot better than I expected! ๐Ÿ˜€ Like, I was actually really (pleasantly) surprised!

Oh, and sorry for the horrible lighting… It was dork outside, and all there was in the building was a little bare lightbulb. I was able to up the brightness a bit, but still… XD


Freely, Freely

God forgave my sin in Jesus’ name.
I’ve been born again in Jesus’ name
And in Jesus’ name I come to you
To share his love as he told me to.
He said ‘Freely, freely you have received;, freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.
All pow’r is giv’n in Jesus’ name
in earth and heav’n in Jesus name
And in Jesus’ name I come to you
To share his pow’r as he told me to.
He said ‘Freely, freely you have received;, freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.

In Christ,

Rosyย 

P.S. Oh, and a piece of good news… It’s finally starting to feel like Spring here!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Do you know this song? Should I try to do more a cappella videos? Is it starting to feel like spring at your house?ย 

Ants

Standard
Ants

Ants. Ants? Ants!? ๐Ÿ˜ณย That’sย what I’m blogging about today? Yes. Ants.ย ๐Ÿœ

You are probably wondering, “My dear Rosy, I’m sure you are still in your normal state of mind, well, at least I hopeย so, but Rosy… why ants???” ๐Ÿค”

Well, I’m glad you asked then! Ants are really quite wonderful creatures! Why? Because God made them! But, that aside, what is so fascinating about ants? Aren’t they just teensy, little black things? That BITE? Well yeah, maybe, but that’s most certainly not all they are good for! (Though biting is probably not one of their very bestย features, I dare say…) But seriously. Ants are really neat! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜„

Here are some interesting facts I have learned about ants. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

macro photo of five orange ants

  1. Ants are incredibly strong!

Most ants can carry 10 to 50 times their own weight! However, Asian Weaver ants can lift 100 times it’s own weight! Wow!

2. Ants don’t have ears.

What? That’s strange! But. That doesn’t mean ants are deaf. Huh? (If I had no ears, I think I would be deaf!) You see, ants can “hear” though vibrations in the ground. (Also, believe it or not, some ants don’t even have eyes!) All this makes me glad God made me a human.

3. There are a lot of ants in the world.

Of course. You knew this! But do you know exactly how many there are? Good, cuz I don’t either… And I’m equally certain no one does! (Except for God!) But it has been estimated that for every one person in the world, there are 1 million ants! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ WHAT??? That’s a lot guys. And there are more than 12,000 thousand different species of ants all over the earth. Yikes!

4. Ants are the longest living insects.

That’s right! Although some bugs only live for weeks, or days, sometimes even hours, ants have the ability to live to be 30 years old! Which means, the next ant you see justย mightย be older than you!

5. The largest ant ever found was 2.4 inches long!

Eew. Imagine having that thing crawling up your leg? It sounds really cool to see, but… I wonder how hard it bites!? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I’d rather not find out…


Wow, ants are even cooler than I thought! And that’s not even half of how amazing ants are. And guess what. Ants are even mentioned several times in the Bible! Perhaps the most popular passage in the Bible with ants is Proverbs 6: 6 – 11.

Go to the ant, you sluggard!

Consider her ways and be wise,
ย Which, having no captain,
Overseer or ruler,
ย Provides her supplies in the summer,
Andย gathers her food in the harvest.

How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
When will you rise from your sleep?
ย A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to sleep.

So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler,
And your need like an armed man.

Proverbs 6: 6-11

 

 

Wow, it looks like we can really learn a lot from the simple little ant! Who knew? If the tiny ant can be so diligent with so many things against her, how can we not? ๐Ÿ˜€ What can you do, to be like the ant? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿœ

Random Survey Results!

Sooo…. the Random Survey I made a few days ago was a blast! ๐Ÿ˜€ I really enjoyed seeing all your answers come in. My favorite part was seeing all your assumptions about me! That was great!
