Memorial Day {2016}

Happy Memorial Day! I've wrote a little poem (two, really. They don't really go together ;)) to share with you all. Here it is, and I hope you enjoy. :) 
Never forget the price that was paid for our freedom. Yesterday we were singing America, The Beautiful at church and these words really stuck out to me... 
O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife, Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life! 
Who more than self their country loved... That says it all, doesn't it? :') 

God, bless the soldier  Who left his homeland for us,  Died to keep us safe. 
And hold near the souls  Of those who sacrificed all For our liberty. 
Just for our freedom  They willingly gave their lives  On those foreign soils. 
Courageously endured,  For the freedom we hold dear.  We owe them greatly. 
Today let's thank God  For our American soldiers,  All they gave for us. 

Have you given thought  To how many men died for you?  For this our country. 
Now safe in heave…

The Sparrow Found a House by Jason McIntire {Book Review}

~ Book Description ~  What if your new stepdad was a Bible-toting Army Sergeant? Fifteen-year-old Jessie Rivera is living every teenager’s nightmare. Her widowed mom has married a man who wears his heavy Christian values like his sergeant’s stripes – on both sleeves. Glenn Sparrow is persistent, immovable, and not afraid to be firm. Worse than that, he’s loving, kind – even fun – and he has Chris, Moe, and Katie completely won over. But Jessie is determined that she won’t be won over, or give up her “freedom” without a fight. She knows what she wants, and it isn’t what they’ve got. Or is it?

Ahh, it was so refreshing! <3 The writing was amazing and oh, so funny, I can't begin to count the times I laughed while reading this. ;) The characters were flawed and bel…

Let's talk a little about blogging. What inspired you to start a blog?  Last summer I started looking at the Circle C blog. I saw the list of Andi's fan blogs on the side and decided to look at some of them. I found a few that I liked and just check often for more posts. Reading different blogs made me think that I would like to have a blog. I also really wanted some blogger friends. So mostly what inspired me …
