Guess What!

Today is a special day for a very special person.  Can you guess? 

It's Carissa's Birthday!!!

This morning, I'm thankful for the thirteen years that I've been able to spend with Carissa. 

~Several things I'm thankful for about Carissa, listed in no particular order~
  • Every Wednesday night, she stays up late just to see us when we get home from Bible study. 
  • She is very diligent in memorizing her Bible Bee verses.
  • She doesn't get easily discouraged or upset when she makes a mistake while reviewing her verses with me--just determines to try harder and keeps going.
  • She has a big, wonderful smile.
  • She often spends time playing with her younger brother and sisters (yes, as evidenced by both the photos!).
  • She spends time talking with her older sisters and we have lots of fun together.
Happy Birthday, Carissa! 
I hope you have a special day and a fantastically wonderful year!  Enjoy being thirteen =)

My Ramblings...

Hi All. This post is going to be somewhat random. Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I will start working on all of those. Also, I have grown tired of my old look on my blog. I will be working on it over the next couple days. If you have any ideas for my blog please comment and tell me.

Bible Cake

Recently I found this recipe for a Bible Cake. I thought I would share it with you all. Look up the references. Enjoy

3/4 cup Genesis 18:8
1 1/2 cup Jeremiah 6:20
5 Isaiah 10:14 (separated)
3 cups sifted Leviticus 24:5
3 teaspoons 2 Kings 2:20
3 teaspoons Amos 4:5
1 teaspoon Exodus 3:23
1/4 teaspoon each 2 Chronicles 9:9
1/2 cup Judges 4:19
3/4 chopped Genesis 43:11
3/4 cup finely cut Jeremiah 24:5
3/4 cup 2 Samuel 16:1
Whole Genesis 43:11

Cream Genesis 18 with Jeremiah 6. Beat in yolks of Isaiah 10, one at a time. Sift together Leviticus 24; 2 Kings 2; Amos 4; Exodus 30; and 2 Chronicles 9.
Blend into creamed mixture alternately with Judges 4. Beat whites of Isaiah 10 till stiff; fold in. Fold in chopped Genesis 43; Jeremiah 24; and 2 Samuel 16. Turn into 10-inch tube pan that has been greased and dusted with Leviticus 24.
Bake at 325 degrees F until it is golden brown or Gabriel blows his trumpet, whichever happens first. Bake for an hour and ten minutes. Remove from oven. After fifteen minutes, remove it from the pan. Cool completely. Drizzle over it some Burnt Jeremiah Syrup.

Bible Bee Verses

I thought I would share some of my Bible Bee verses with you. Here you go:

Psalm 141:3 - Set a guard o LORD over my mouth, keep watch over the door of my lips.

Proverbs 22:17 - Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise and apply your heart to my knowledge.

John 4:25-26  - The woman said to him, I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ), When he comes he  will tell us all things. Jesus said to her, I who speak to you am he.

Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our LORD.


I wanted to let you all know, my readers, that I have found a very helpful site for Memory work. It is called Memverse. You sign up and then put in your verses you want to memorize. Your interval between reviewing verses gets bigger and bigger as you review it more.

Bible Bee

I have decided that its time for an update on the Bible Bee. It is six weeks and three days until the local competition! I am almost finished with my memory work. Lord willing, I should be finished by July 24th. The Bible Bee is such an encouragement to me mainly because I am memorizing God's Word and I am digging deeper into His Word.

A Prayer Request

Please pray for me that I would not set my mind on winning the Bible Bee but that I would stay focused on doing my best and giving God the glory. What can I be praying for you about (don't put on anything you don't want on the Internet, or if you want to tell me but not have it on the Internet put NNTP [No Need To Publish])?

Not my photo

Sadly, my blog has been forgotten recently. And I probably won't be posting much throughout the summer. But if I am to post I have to have something to post about, right? :) I'm kind of having a hard time figuring what to post about. Does anyone have any ideas? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
