Photographer at heart
Was almost ready to depart,
I’d gathered the supplies.

Cameras, film, and a backpack,
Going old school, memories taking me back,
Traveling to the airport, almost makes me cry.

Going to many exotic places,
Where I’ll see many faces –
That is all well and good,

But I do not want to explore,
I want to be home more,
In my own neighborhood!

Is that really so bad?
That right now, traveling makes me sad?
That in pajamas I want to stay?

And crash on the sofa and vent,
Especially during this event,
Trying to write a novel in only thirty days!

We Might Have Missed Something in “Faith Like a Child”

I enjoyed this post so much – especially since I’m studying Humility by Andrew Murray. 🙂 Click the link to read!

Brandon J. Adams

father-and-child-walking-at-sunsetFor as long as I remember, I’ve heard that my faith should be like a child’s. That 1) it should be “trusting” and “unpretentious” (pulling from my study Bible here), not tarnished by life’s disappointments, and that 2) it’s a good verse to apply to the life challenges we bring to God’s feet.

But imagine my surprise when I looked up “faith like a child” in Scripture recently and couldn’t find it. That phrase doesn’t exist in the Bible, at least not in that form.

And when I examined the passages from whence it supposedly springs, I found a different lesson – different enough, at least, that I’d never heard it.

Jesus called a little child to stand among them. “Truly I tell you,” He said, “unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this little child is…

Liebster Award – again! ❤

Celebrate His Love nominated me for the Liebster Award – thank you, Dori! 🙂 And I learned that “Liebster” means “favorite one” or “adorable one” in German – I have wondered what that meant, but didn’t think to research it, so thanks for the fun fact! 🙂

I’ve seen variations of the rules of this award, but here are the ones that Celebrate His Love had:

  • Thank the nominator
  • Answer the Questions below
  • Nominate others

The Questions:

  1. If you could be any animal on earth, what would it be and why?
    • Probably a cat. They get pampered, they pretty much are king of the jungle – or house, if a house cat. Also, when they fall, they land on their feet most of the time. They seem to have a pretty great life!
  2. If you had to write the soundtrack of your life, what would be the first three songs?
  3. If your death was imminent, what would you choose as your last meal?
    • Some sort of seafood. I’m not choosy about which kind it is, though I do like shrimp…
  4. What movie that has not yet been made would you pay good money to see?
    • I don’t really keep up with movies, but… perhaps a biography based on Evidence Not Seen by Darlene Diebler Rose? I’m really enjoying the book.
  5. What was your favorite age to be and why?
    • Probably ten? It was a nice carefree age.
  6. What is the one book that has most inspired your writing and/or life?
    • The Bible. 🙂
  7. If you could live anywhere you please, without that pesky restraint called money, where would it be and why?
    • I have no idea. I love the idea of Alaska, but it gets so cold there. Also, my own private tropical island sounds nice, but… I like seasons. So perhaps I’d get an RV so I could travel and live wherever I want on this continent, whether in Alaska or the coast and get to travel to see a lot of God’s creations in person. 🙂
