God's faithfulness, and prayer request

I am 15! God has been soooo gracious to me for these 15 years. He has blessed me with life, health, his salvation, wonderful friends and family, and so many more things that I can't count them all!
He has even blessed me through the hard times too! Two years ago, I lost two of my siblings by miscarriage, and through that hard experience, I grew in my relationship with the Lord. I had been (and still do, like all sinful human beings) struggling with being content with what I had, and where I was. When we lost the babies, the Lord used that hard circumstance to show me where I was struggling. Slowly but surely, through my devotions, and lots of prayer, I have found it a little bit easier lately to be content.
I am going through an awesome book in my devotions right now. It is called:
~ Contentment- a godly woman's adornment. By Lyda Brownback.
I was really convicted this morning when I read this little section:

"We can-and should-certainly enjoy the material things God gives us, but only if we hold them loosely. It is the love of this world's blessings, the focus on getting them, that is the problem, not the blessings themselves. We don't need anything more than what we have right now, today, in order to be content. The bible says so; therefore, it must be true. The choice is ours."

Isn't that great?

I also have a prayer request this morning. Jenna, from Feminine Farm girl , could really use some prayer, or even a sympathetic comment on her blog. She lost one of her goats and all three of the goat kids due to complications in the goat's pregnancy. Even though she and her family are really hurting, they are still praising the Lord. I'm sure she would appreciate a lot of prayer right now!
Thanks guys!!!!!!!!!

The simple things that make my day special~

While I was lying in bed sick with the flu this week (sad), I got to thinking about the little things that I really enjoy doing. It seems like it's always the simplest things that you remember the most :)
Like starting my day off with the Lord in my devotions always makes a wonderful start to the new day

 Or taking a walk in the woods and praying outloud. God seems more close to me when I talk to him with a real voice

Editing pictures

Cooking up a collage of breakfast foods. . . and then eating them :)

Giggling, talking, and just hanging out with my best friend, Caelen :)

Shopping with the ladies

Looking and laughing at old photos with dad

Taking a hike up in the mountains with my family

Blogging about my day :)

Lemon juice contest ;}

Nathan got to go with Dad out to the field today to help him survey, so Ben was feeling pretty lonely without his buddy. Now that I have my braces off, I can (finally :) eat lemons, gum, popcorn, etc!!!  HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!!  So Ben and I decided to have a contest......a lemon juice drinking contest.....with no sour faces.
I'm not sure this was such a good idea :)

Surprisingly, Ben won!!!!

I did pretty well to start with, but in the end.....I couldn't help it! ;}

Well....I guess I got tired of looking at the old background :)

Well, so much for the "permanent" background. I guess I am not much for all of those bright, poppy colors. I think from now on, I am going to steer towards the more simple rustic. That seems to suite my style better. :D Have a great night everybody!!!
In Christ,
Hannah Girl

Pssst: I got my braces off!!!!! YEAH!

Have you ever.....walked your chicken???

I don't know if it is just my family that likes to experiment with our chickens, but we put my silkie, Herbi, through pure "torture," and humiliation, by walking him on a dog leash. Thankfully, he is a VERY patient chicken, and did quite well considering that he is not a dog. But I think he was humiliated, because he tried to hide from the other chickens for a while afterwards. :)

I attached the leash in a loop around his body.
