The Pen-pal Tag


Averey over at The Providential Blogger, tagged me for this really fun looking tag!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks, Averey!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค

1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. Answer the 10 questions.
3. List 5 things you like to do with pen-pals.
4. Tag as many other people as you would like.


I started when we moved to Mexico, to keep up with my friends from the States. ๐Ÿ™‚


I’m not even sure. XD Only a few faithful pen-pals, but I have quite a few people that I write on a semi-regular basis. ๐Ÿ™‚


Sometimes yes, when I feel like it, or when I’m not in a big hurry. Which I often am, lol! I love to do it though. ๐Ÿ™‚


Almost always random, but I like the idea of doing themed letters…


Just the U.S. ๐Ÿ˜‰


1) To keep up with my friends in the States! 2) It’s so much fun!!! ๐Ÿ˜€


It totally depends. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Well, living in Mexico, it’s a bit complicated as we have to go all the way to the border to get and mail letters. So it usually ends up being at least several weeks. ๐Ÿ™‚


Yes, sometimes! (Actually, I try, but usually, fail…) XD


Well, I can talk in Spanish, but I don’t have any pen-pals who speak another language.

5 Things I like to do with pen-pals
1. I love exchanging different flavors of tea!
2. Mail tag
3. Exchanging stickers, washi tape and such. ๐Ÿ˜‰
4. Movie/song/book recommendations
5. Exchanging bible verse cards and coloring pages

Now let’s see, I shall tag…..

The Music Tag!

The Music Tag!

Hi! I was really excited when Kassie tagged me for this music tag. Because I love music! Thanks Kassie!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™ƒ
  1. Write ten songs that come on shuffle (no skipping).
  2. Write your favorite lyric from each song.
  1. Tag some people.


  1. As Long as You are Glorified// Coffey Ministries

I love this song! God is still God during the good times, and the bad. โคย 

“You are good when I’m poor and needy
You are true when I’m parched and dry
You still reign in the deepest valley
You’re still God in the darkest night”

2. You are Always Good// Majesty Music

“Looking up, I can see Your sympathy;
I doubt myself, but I’m sure of Your love.
Lavish grace was poured out at Calvary,
Securing me for our home above.”

3. Instead// Southern Raised

Jesus took our sin upon Himself and paid our penalty. What a Savior!

“His love became the ransom
For a dept I could not pay
My sin demanded justice;
Jesus made a way
Oh, I’m so grateful for the blood He shed
ย Instead”

4. He Is// Kevin Inafuku

“The loving hand that formed me and fills my heart with song,
The voice that stirs inside me when all hope is gone
The Morning Star that guides me,
The Light that goes before me,
The One’s who’s praise is on my lips, He is!”

5.ย He Who Began A Good Work In You// Steve Green

He is finishing the work He started in us, making us more and more like Christ.
“If the struggle you’re facing
Is slowly replacing your hope
With despair
Or the process is long
And you’re losing your song
In the night
You can be sure that the Lord
Has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you”

6.ย Whate’er My God Ordains is Right// Grace Community Church

Even when we don’t understand it, everything that comes to pass is in His good and perfect plan. โคย 
“Whate’er my God ordains is right:
though now this cup, in drinking,
may bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it, all unshrinking.
My God is true; each morn anew
sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
and pain and sorrow shall depart.”

7. Saved by the Blood// The Gospel Plowboys

“Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
Now ransomed from sin and a new work begun,
Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!”

8. Out of Ashes// Steve Greenย 

I really like this one!ย 
“Out of ashes into freedom
Out of dying into life
See the joy that’s set before us
In the blinding cross of Christ.”

9. King of Love/ย  Coffey Ministries

“And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd, may I sing Your praise
Within Your house forever.”

10. Blessings// Laura Story

This song has been an encouragement to me through hard times and trials in my life. โคย 
“What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy.”
That was fun – thanks for tagging me, Kassie! ๐Ÿ˜€ย ๐Ÿ˜„
Ok, whom should I tag…? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™ƒ

And anyone else who wants to do this tag!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope everyone is having a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for tagging me Hattush, this was fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, so for those of you who are wondering why I posted the last day of this tag twice, and for you who are wondering why I’m so late in posting this, I decided to redo my last post.

After I posted my last blog post (3 Days, 3 Quotes – Day Three) I realized that some of the people I quoted did not reflect a biblical worldview, so I decided to delete that one, and completely redo it. I’m so sorry, and I apologize for any confusion I caused. Thank you!

Do I Have that Book Challenge!


Hey guys! Y’all can call me a thief, because I just stole an awesome looking tag from Kate Willis! Actually, I asked her permission to steal it, so I’m not sure it’s still stealing… Anyways, make sure to check her awesome answers to this tag. ๐Ÿ™‚


1. Time yourself trying to find each prompt on your shelf
2. Try and beat the time of the person who challenged you.
3. Donโ€™t forget to tag your challenger and the original creator.

22 seconds!

3. Do you have a book based on another fictional story?

After a looong time of searching, I finally found a book with 10 words… Whew… XD Technically, I’m not sure you’re aloud to use sub-titles or not, but I did, so… XD And take back what I said about it being easy… 5 minutes and 22 seconds this time!

Oh my goodness, I just realized I did that wrong!!!!! *face plam* It was supposed to the ten LETTERS, not WORDS! Oh well, I don’t feel like re-doing it now. I spent a lot of time on that, lol! XD


5. Do you have a book with a title that starts and ends with the same letter?


๐Ÿ™‚ This one took 1 minute and 11 seconds.

This is a good book! I learned a lot about the Amish, reading it. (Plus, the main character as the same name as me!!!) ๐Ÿ˜€ 8 seconds!

9. Do you have a book with 2 maps in it?


I really liked this book too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ok, this book only has one map in the book, but there’s another one on the cover, so I’m letting it count. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 24 seconds. ๐Ÿ™‚


10. Do you have a book that was turned into a TV show?

Umm, I really don’t know! Lemme look.


I found one is 43 seconds!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

11. Do you have a book written by someone who is originally famous for something else? (Celebrity/Athlete/Politician/TV Personalityโ€ฆ)

Maybe??? I don’t know… XD

12. Do you have a book with a clock on the cover?

Cool question!

Ooookay, somehow I thought this would be easier. I searched 4.44 seconds, and didn’t really find anything definite. but I think that could maybe, possibly be a clock on the cover??? What do you guys think? ๐Ÿ™‚


13. Do you have a poetry book?


Well, I have this one. I haven’t really read it though, so I can’t recommend it yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 9 seconds!

14. Do you have a book with an award stamp on it?
