Nationals ~ Part 1

Tuesday, November 13, we got up bright and early and headed out for Sevierville, TN. We left about 7:40 AM. We spent the trip in studying Cross References, Greek Words, Memory Verses, etc... in preparation for Thursday's tests...a 200 question test and 10 minute oral round. It took about 10 hours including stops. One major blessing was that the two little girls were very good car riders :D In Louisville we met up with two other Bible Bee families from our local bee and we had supper together. We had an AMAZING time together. We had lots of fun getting to know each other more since previously all we ever talked about was the Bible Bee. We also talked about what we were looking forward to most at Nationals. We had LOTS of fun. After supper we headed back to our hotel room on the campus of Southern Seminary. Where one of the Bible Bee families was also staying. We had a very nice family suite...not like your usual hotel. The first room had a queen sized bed and the second room had a …

Two Years??!!

Can it really be two years since I started blogging? I have really enjoyed blogging even though I don't blog as much as I would like. Your comments always brighten my day :D

So, I would like you to tell me your name, how you found my blog and what are two things you want to learn how to do.

My name is Carissa. I started this blog by asking my dad if I could have a blog. He said yes and Amy, my older sister, helped me start it. Two things that I want to learn are, Cake decorating and Html code.

Now it's your turn :D


I thought that I would post some hymns that I really like. I have LOTS of favorite hymns but these are just a few. There are so many wonderful hymns.

When I survey the Wondrous Cross
When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.
He Leadeth Me
He leadeth me, O bless├Ęd thought! O words with heav’nly comfort fraught! Whate’er I do, where’er I be Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

Refrain He leadeth me, He leadeth me, By His own hand He leadeth me; His faithful follower I would be…
