Happy First Day Of Autumn!

Took this yesterday and it reminded me of autumn haha. Maybe it’s the orange background from the sunset. Have a wonderful day! ❤

500 Posts!

I can’t believe I’ve posted 500 posts here! (Now 503.) I meant to get a screenshot of that achievement but I forgot. Anyway,  thanks for following me on this journey! ❤ I’ll leave you all with photos of a weird cloud I saw when we were at Lowe’s last July. 🙂 (I know, I’m so behind on posting photos!)

I thought it looked like a tornado – but there were no storms around. When I zoomed in, it looked like it may actually be two clouds layers this way. It was a strange sight to behold!

The Gate of Life (a reblog)

One of my best friends, Refreshing Spirit, left for Bolivia today! 🙂 If you want to follow her journey while there, click below to view her new blog, Olivia in Bolivia! ❤

Olivia in Bolivia

I’ve left my home in Colorado to spend time with my family before going to Bolivia. The “lasts” have begun. Last day of teaching at my Colorado school. Last Sunday with my Colorado church family. Last night in Colorado.

Leaving hurts. Sometimes it feels like a slow death. In some ways, it is.

The Physical Reality

I’m dying to my current way of life. I’m dying to being around my favorite people. I’m dying to even the godly comforts and joys that I currently enjoy.

I know that God is calling me on to Bolivia, and my love for Him and confidence in Him compels me onward in spite of the pain of goodbyes. The thing is, I can’t live in the United States and in Bolivia at the same time. This is part of God’s design. It’s the reality of the way the world works. It makes me…

My Third WordPress Anniversary!

I’ve been on here for three years! I can’t believe it. 😀 In celebration, I wanted to reshare a few “third” things. Firstly, Seeds was my third post on this blog. Secondly, He Saves was my third poem.  Thirdly, Perseverance was my first photography type post.

I found this in my drafts from back in 2016 and thought I’d share for the occasion. I laughed at myself from 3 years ago. I don’t think I kept up with adding to it for the past two years. Hope you enjoy the humor!


Auto-correct and I have a very interesting relationship. Most of the time, it’s helpful and fixes my typos for me or suggests what I was trying to type when I really wreck the spelling of the word.

However, every once in a while, it turns against me and “fixes” something that wasn’t broken to start with; or I’m in a hurry, so I go ahead and choose the first word that it offers me without really reading it first. Whoops. I thought it might be fun to collect some of these mistakes that I caught and fixed before publishing and make a post about it. Some of them are really crazy. XD

From Follow Your Heart…?: “No, this isn’t about the song in Disney’s Mulligan soundtrack. XD” The movie has nothing to do with stew or golf; it’s Mulan.

From The Season for Grace review: “Their backstrokes were so touching.” This novel is set during the fall and winter. Nobody was swimming so elegantly that it was touching. No, it was their backstories that I found touching.

From The Liebster Award: “…Christian Dustpan Young Adult novel…” Uh, no. Just no. How would one even write a dustpan?  o_O I wrote the first draft of a Christian Dystopian Young Adult novel. (It also wanted to replace “Liebster” with “Lobster” or “Blister”, but I digress.)

From By Perseverance…: “Here is one of my favorite quotes by Charles Surgeon…” Charles was not in the medical field. It also tried to replace Spurgeon with Sturgeon; Charles was not a fish either. His name is Spurgeon. I’m actually quite surprised that autocorrect wasn’t familiar with his name. o_O

And speaking of the  o_O (the shotcut to get this emoji o_O ), Microsoft Word wanted to make my cringing face into an “odor” or an “oboe”. Please. That doesn’t even make sense.

Not even the Bible is exempt from the autocorrect’s clutches. In my post, Seeds, I quoted Matthew 13:3: “Behold, a sewer went forth to sow…” **bangs head on desk** Sower. A person who sows seeds. I thought sower was a known word, so I don’t have any idea where that one came from… Word can be so oblivious sometimes.  XD

And there we go. Hope you enjoyed my adventures with auto-correct. 🙂


Wow. I barely even remember writing this. XD

On another note, I’m working on posts for this week – finally getting back into posting a bit more often. I also looking forward to catching up with you all! ❤ I’m so behind in reading your posts. 😮

Yesterday’s Liebster Award Error – An Apology

I must apologize to T. R. Noble and Faye  – I somehow copied T. R.’s questions to Faye in the award post yesterday (Liebster Award).  And then went I went to grab the correct questions to answer – and I wasn’t a nominee! 😳 I realize how this could come across, and I promise I wasn’t trying to pretend that I was nominated when I wasn’t. 😮 When I am nominated, I save a link to my “awards” bookmarks to remind me to make a draft, copy the rules and questions, etc. Somehow, Faye’s post ended up in my “awards” bookmarks instead of my “Posts to catch up on” bookmarks, and I thought I was nominated for that reason. My mistake! 😊

I also bring this up so that anyone who saw the Liebster Award portion disappear from the post yesterday would not think they are crazy.

I ask for your forgiveness, T. R. and Faye, and I’ll double check before posting from now on. 🙂 Love you guys and see you around the blogging community! ❤
