Your Saving Love

     When the sun refuses to shine,

And the moon has a place it’d rather be,

When the whole world is at its darkest moment,

You are there with a smile that lights up the world.


When despair is all there is,

When darkness is my only friend,

There You come,

You rescue me from the pain,

Erase the heartache that I’ve come to know so well,

Making me wonder at how amazing You are.


Bound by unbreakable chains,

Forever to remain in darkness,

Unable to know what love is,

Or to feel it’s wonderful warmth,

Forever to remain in the cold darkness,

To remain forever without you.

Those icy hands will forever remain on my heart,

Never again to depart.


No more pain,

No more shame,

It was all washed away when You came.

The chains broken by Your love,

Which was so strong it broke the unbreakable chains.

You came bursting forth,

Bringing with You glorious light.

You knocked down the walls which contained me,

Broke the chains which retained me,

Released me from my dark prison,

Showing that You and only You are strong enough.

You defeated the guards keeping watch over my heart,

You led me to Your castle,

Through the gate of pearls,

To the one place where there are no tears.

All the pain is gone,

Never to return again.

In Your heavenly abode I shall remain.

I have always loved treasure hunts, hide-and-seek, and anything like that. Why? Because I like finding things. I like treasures. The feeling one gets when they find what their looking for is amazing. I also love adventure because you never know what's going to happen. It's a mystery, and who doesn't like mysteries?  Well you know what else is a mystery? God is. He is mysterious. He makes me keep looking, keep trying, keep trusting in Him, and keep knowing that at the end, there is always a treasure. God himself is the biggest treasure that ever was and ever will be. I have never given up on a treasure hunt because of the treasure part of it. Adventures are awesome. That's all I have to say for now but I'll post soon.

Summing up God.

I need to confess something: earlier I was trying to sum up God in a few words, but it took me a LOT more than that to sum Him up. The reason is because God truly is everything. Not the bad stuff, but everything pure, everything holy, everything wonderful, and everything perfect. I can't think of a single word to sum up everything because there is just so much. I have never been left speechless before now, before thinking of one word to sum up God. The word God in itself doesn't sum him up. Nothing can because He almost like a riddle. He has no beginning and no end, He is fully man and fully God, He's love is unending and pure, He loves all, He created all, and He will destroy all. What is He? He is God. I know that isn't saying much, but I truly fall speechless trying to sum Him up.

Out of billions

I was thinking the other day how lucky I am. I have a wonderful family, a wonderful home, our family can afford to put groceries on the table every day, we can afford a car. But then another idea popped into my head: Why was I, out of billions and billions of people, chosen to be in God's kingdom? He could have gotten somebody smarter, somebody prettier, somebody more talented, somebody famous, or somebody more important than me. But no, He choose me. It is impossible to answer somebody if they ask why. Because I don't know. It is easier to see now just how lucky I am. God truly does care for all of us. And then I realized that He didn't just chose me out of billions of people, He chose me out of billions of people because He loves me and wants me to spend eternity with Him. And it is just so hard to comprehend how much He loves me and everyone else that He has called. So if you ever feel like nobody cares about you, just think how much God does. How He called you instead of somebody more _ than you are. How He chose you and how He loves you and how He has a special plan for you.

Ah, I am having a wonderful evening. Still getting used to the time change and still very tired, but I love this time of year. We have had some beautiful sun-downs that my big sister Song captured in her blog Shanghai Songbird, you should check that out. I love spring time when the trees are blooming, the grass growing, and a few flowers here and there. It's not spring yet, but all of this is starting already. I think sometimes we see straight through the beauty of the world God created. We don't realize how wonderful and amazing it is that we have so much as seasons. But I'm also sad that it's about to be mosquito season again. They really bother me is more ways than I can say. I had better go, can't stay up on a church night. I'll post soon!!!

Hello guys! How are you? I was just going to say how wonderful God is. He works in mysterious and wonderful ways. I realize now that I'm older how blessed I am. I have a wonderful home, an amazing family, and way too many clothes:) But the most wonderful of all the things I have is a forgiving, saving, and never-ending God. Some people might think it's a bad thing to go on the mission field, but I think that since God gave us so much, why not give Him our lives, why not live for Him? I am also experiencing this restlessness to be a missionary that won't go away until I get to India, so it will be a while till it's gone. I hope everyone realizes how blessed they are. If you just look around, you can see God has given you so much and we should all spend some time to tell God thank you now and then. Take a moment every now and then and see God has blessed you this very day. I hope this post has made you see God in more ways than you did before and have a great day!!

I know it's been a while since my last post, so here is a new post! I didn't really go to India, that was just a project I did for school. I should also tell you that I am a homeschooled student of SPIGOT, our schools name. I am the 5th oldest in our family of 8 (parents not included) and have 3 siblings younger than me! We have a huge family, but not the biggest one I know of. I have 3 brothers and 4 sisters, 3 of whom have Down Syndrome. We are a pretty amazing family, 8 kids, 2 parents, and 3 with Down Syndrome! 5 of my siblings are adopted, making our family a pretty crazy one. I will try to remember to post soon, and I hope you enjoyed this post!!
