Life Update!

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on our life, so I decided it was time for one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Quite a bit has happened the last several months. And a lot of good things, and a lot of hard things too. But God has been faithful through it all. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

So… One cool/happy thing going on right now, is that our friend, Maggie Cyr, came all the way from Arizona to stay with us for about a month! We are very much enjoying our time with her. ๐Ÿ™‚

It has been a big blessing having her, and we’ve had a lot of fun with her! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  โค

The weather has been amazing where we live in Mexico. Lots of rain, clouds, thunder…. It’s all awesome! (Except for the fact the electricity pretty much always goes out every time it rains… Which is about every day during these months… XD )

I went on a nature walk with my camera the other day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is amazing for photography. (I’m so sad it’s almost over. 4 more days!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

Mom reading to some of the kids. (Susy’s face, lol! XD )

Other than that, I have…

Played lots of guitar and piano…

Read lots of books, including The Hiding Place, and several books by Elisabeth Elliot…

Played piano at church for the first time – that was very fun!

Watched The Widow’s Might with Maggie…

Sang a lot with Maggie, Gracie and Lizzie… ๐Ÿ˜€

And lots more… ๐Ÿ˜‰

oh, and one more thing that’s happening right now, is that we are finally replacing our bookshelf. It was FALLING. APART. Literally. Like, I can’t tell you how any time we nailed those shelves up when they fell a few times a week… XD So yeah, we are very happy (to say the least!) about the new ones. I won’t go into how hard it was to actually get the bookshelf standing upright because it was slightly too tall, and our ceiling is shorter in some spots, and higher in others… Lol! XD Oh, and we currently have books stacked all over the living room still… XD

The new bookshelf. ๐Ÿ™‚ We haven’t finished putting the books back on the shelves, lol!

So yeah, that’s a bit of what’s been going on lately. ๐Ÿ™‚ (That was a lot of pictures, lol)

I wanted to end this post with this quote my grandma sent me. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

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
