Update From the Past Month

Standard

So, the last few weeks have been… Hard. And sad, and good, and fun, and rough, and sweet, and awful, and happy, and terrible… Bitter and sweet. And yeah. That pretty much explains it.

Last week we went to Pheonix, Arizona to attend the unexpected funeral of our little friend, Joshua Young. โค๏ธย Please pray for his family during this time of loss. ๐Ÿ˜”ย โค๏ธย Here’s a song that has been an encouragement to me over the last few days. Actually, here’s two!

I got to visit quite a few friends in Arizona last week! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

More singing<3

And in other news family news… We got sick, bought a keyboard and spent 2 days in the car together. (During which, we passed the time by listening to Jonothan Park, and Lamplighter Theatre!)

Also, the peaches on our peach tree are starting to get ripe, which I’m excited about because they are SO. GOOD. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Yuuum!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

So, a few weeks ago we went to the graduation party of someone we know. There was a lot of visiting and food, and all of us ladies and girls spent a lot of time talking, laughing and watching some of the men and boys playing soccer. It was a very enjoyable time. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the meal, they cooked up the pig. (The one you see down below.) Hopefully y’all aren’tย tooย grossed out by this! ;P While we were eating, we sat and watched our food’s head dangling in front of us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dad got up and took a selfie with his friend, Elย Cochi. (The Pig)

The women, visiting. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, I should probably head to bed now… It’s almost 10:00 at night here. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I will post this tomorrow though. I’ll probably be able to check for typos and stuff better after I get some sleep… XD ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m Back!!!// Why I Did a Media Fast, and How it Blessed Me

Standard

*Note: I was going to post this on Monday… But it didn’t work out, and yesterday my dad, some siblings and I went to the border. So, I’m doing it today! ๐Ÿ™‚ *


Hey everyone!! I’m sooo happy to be back! I missed blogging, and emailing and chatting so much… But it was a good two weeks, and I’m glad I did it!

Here are 3 reasons why I did a media fast.

  1. So that I could spend more time with God, His Word, and my family.
  2. For my head. My head can start really hurting if I’m on the computer for a while.ย 
  3. Just to give myself a break, lol! It can be stressful sometimes, always trying to write blog posts, and get them done in time… Not that I don’t like blogging- I love it! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

And here are some reasons it blessed me. (Other than the reasons I gave above!)

  1. I had more time to do other things such as reading, schoolwork, projects, chores, spending time with siblings, and more. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I also was able to exercise (by going on a run) almost every day during those two weeks. For me, that’s impressive, lol!ย 
  2. I was able to focus on the more important things in life such as relationships with God and my family.ย 
  3. I got to read more books!!!!! (That’s always a blessing! Try not to take it for grated…! lol.)ย 
  4. I learned God is always with me, even when I’m lonely. He’s a faithful friend!! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

During the media fast, I sang a lot, made movies with my siblings, wrote lots of letters, played a lot of piano, accordion and guitar. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Oh! And I mentioned before that my friend decided to do it with me at last minute! I asked her to share some reasons she did the media fast, and how it blessed her, to which she happily obliged. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

And, without further ado, I present to you…. Kyra Rose!

3 reasons why I (Kyra) did the media fast…

  1. To glorify God.
  2. To take a break.
  3. To grow in my relationship with God

3 things I learned/ ways it blessed me…

  1. I learned that it is always very important to put God first, and to make sure nothing is even close to getting in the way of my relationship with God.
  2. 1 Peter 5:7; casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
    During the last couple weeks God has used this verse to really bless and amaze me! I have learned how much God really cares for me! It was my sin that put Him on the cross, and yet He loves me and calls me His daughter!
  3. When I am weak, God is strong! He is faithful to help us through all things! To God aloneย be the glory!
During the fast, I listened to music, played a lot guitar/piano, and a little bit of banjo, cleaned, and read books.๐Ÿ˜€

I think Kyra’s reason’s were really good, don’t you? ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, that’s it for now! Be on the lookout for a life update post with lots of pictures!! ๐Ÿ˜€

In Christ,

Rosy Joy

Have you ever done a media fast? Would you ever want to do one? Did you miss me??? XDย
