Hello everyone! Today it is snowing, so I decided to post some pictures of this beautiful sunsets I stumbled apon last year. So, without hesitation, let's get started with this post!

Just look at it! Very pretty!
The silhouette of the trees look amazing!

This was a little bit earlier before the colors started getting intense!

Thanks so such for reading! I love reading while watching sunsets! What about you?



Hey y'all!  Today I have a message about obedience that comes from Genesis 6:22, about Noah.

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, ad he walked faithfully with God.
Genesis 6:9b

Noah was a righteous man, even through all of the bad influences in his life.  Noah found favor in the Lord and obeyed His commands.

Sometimes it's scary in our lives when we don't know what to do next or we don't know where God is leading us for the future, but we have to be brave no matter what happens because in the end there is going to be a big prize: going to live in heaven forever and ever.

Well how can we be brave?
We can put our trust in God and serve Him as best as we can, to our full ability.

It's going to be hard, but most things in this life on earth will not be easy.

I will talk about trusting God more in the future!

Listen to God's callings and don't question...Just obey!

Trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus...But to trust and obey!

Thank you for reading!

10 Things On My Bucket List

Hey guys! I honestly never had anything really planted on my bucket list until recently. Here are a few things on it:

1~ This would be awesome
I did the walk behind the falls in niagara but it doesn't really count since ur in a tube behind a railing:

2~ This will hopefully be happening within the next year
Many say they don't read the book of Revelation, it is too scary. Why not investigate this amazing book of prophecy.

create a reading nook where I can relax! Being by myself makes me feel so good. I do it often..

4~ Already in process ;)
DONE! I graduated from a french hight school and I am doing everything I can to keep my fluent french language that I am very proud of!

Bucket list: be in 2 states at once! It's just like the moment in the movie, A Walk To Remember!

Did in my moms backyard. Kept it for years but lost it :(  Gotta find another one

7~ If you didn't know, my whole family loves Lord of the Rings, so this would be a dream come true
This is a goal of mine. #newzealand #hobbiton:

The other day I saw a woman who was homeless and I drove by her. I have been thinking about her every night. I'm not doing that again.

9~ Again, in process
Before I die, I want to...Learn Sign Language. i know the alphabet and some other things but the whole this is definately a goal.:

10~ Kind of hope that this one happens...
this is probably the best pin there is for your bucket list! 2015

These aren't all of the things on my bucket list, but I figured that should be enough for this post.

If you guys would comment telling what type of posts you would like to see from me that would be great! I'm open to pretty much anything, so don't hesitate even if it's different. ;)

Here is one that I wrote this week
When I'm lost
I find my way

When I am weary
I'll get strength

When everything is falling apart
I'll be my shield

When I'm broken
I'll find my pieces

When I'm hurt
I've got bandages
from every other time
I was not alright

So I hope y'all enjoyed this!

Happiness is Free

Hey everyone! Maddy here! It's great to be back and we're all starting to post again!

I love the picture that I found above. Really guys, happiness is f.r.e.e. We get to choose if we're going to be happy or not. Think about it though, do we really have a reason to not be happy? We have family, friends, food, clothes, Jesus, and much more, yet we still long for more. We get sad when we don't get to go somewhere that we really wanted to go to, one of your siblings may have something that you wish that you had, and they're many any things that make us wish that we had or can do. We have more that many people though, and we should always be happy and thankful for it. I know that it can be hard to always be all bright and happy but can you really stop and think about all that you have, and not be happy for it? Guys, be happy for what you have, smile often, and love others! You'll be amazed on how other people around you will reacted.
