Memorial Day...

... A holiday in remembrance of the soldiers who have fought for our country.

I pray that the Lord would bless those men and women who have given their time and lives for us!

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord..."
~ Psalm 33:12 ~


Have a blessed day, dear friends!

Memory Verses!

Hello Dear Friends!

I apologize for my absence recently. I've been quite busy with finishing school. I have now completed eighth grade, and will be starting my ninth grade year of school in August! I feel so blessed to be home schooled, and to have a wonderful education... The Lord is so good!

I plan on posting some photographs real soon, but for now, since it is getting a bit late, I will keep this post short and sweet!

I wanted to share my memory Bible verses with all of you. These four verses are so wonderful and encouraging to me, and I hope they are encouraging to you as well.

"This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed,
because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him."

~ Lamentations 3:21-24 ~
(King James Version)

Have a blessed Saturday evening and may the Lord continue to shine His wonderful light upon you and your family!

Your Sister In Christ,

A Good Thought...

{Picture courtesy of Google Images - Painting by Donald Zolan}

I shall pass through this life but once.
Any good, therefore, that I can do
Or any kindness I can show
To any fellow creature
Let me do now.
Let me not defer or neglect it,
For I shall not pass this way again.

~ Etienne de Grellet ~

Have a wonderful and blessed Tuesday, dear friends!

Animal Picture Week: Day Five!

Hello Dear Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful and blessed afternoon. Today is the last day of Animal Picture Week here on my blog. I've had a great time sharing my photographs with all of you, and I hope to do this again sometime in the future!

Since today is the last day, I am going to share more photographs. So, I guess I had better start!

I found this colorful moth in our neighborhood. I love the designs on its wings!

Although there are some blurry spots in this photograph, I love the wing markings!

A sweet and precious creation of God!

This is a photograph of one of my dear friends holding an adorable, baby pig! Awww! :)

This photograph is really special to me. My dear mama and sister are holding a baby chick together! So sweet!

And last but not least, my favorite...

This little guy looks like he's smiling, doesn't he?! The Lord definitely blessed me while taking this photograph... This dragonfly cooperated very well! :)

I hope you enjoyed all the animal photographs! I sure enjoyed posting them each day. I have enjoyed all the comments. My face lights up when I see that I have to moderate a comment! Thank you all!

Have a blessed day!

{Yours Truly, Jenna}

I've Been Awarded!

Hello Dear Friends!

Miss Bess, at Bess' Bag, kindly awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you so much Bess. This award means so much to me!

Here are the instructions:

- List five random things about yourself.
- Award five stylish blogging friends.


~Five Random Things~

1. I truly enjoy wearing feminine and modest apparel. You will find my closet to be filled with many skirts!
"I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes."
~ 1 Timothy 2:9 ~

2. We have seven wonderful pets... Three dogs, three horses, and one turtle! I love them all so much!

3. I have a true passion for photography. I enjoy taking photographs of God's beautiful Creation. You will find that many of my posts include a photograph I've taken!

4. My favorite animal is a panda bear. I love the country of China, and their people. This is probably why I love panda bears so much!

5. I am color blind... Yes, I know, it is very rare for a woman to be color blind. I can see colors, but I sometimes confuse colors with one another. I suppose you could call it color deficiency. Although I have awful vision and I am color blind, I am SO thankful for everything that the Lord has given me! I feel beyond blessed by my Savior, Jesus Christ!


~ Five People I Award ~

1. Laura, at Sharing His Love

2. Rachel, at Rachel's Blog

3. Raquel, at God's Daughter

4. Rachel, at Hope Journey

To My Dearest Mama...

What a wonderful day we are celebrating today... Mother's Day!


Dearest Mama,

Thank you for everything you do. I feel beyond blessed by God to have you as my mother. Thank you for being supportive, loving, caring, generous, motherly, godly, a Proverbs 31 woman, and so much more! Your wonderful personality shines throughout you, and it truly shows.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have you as my role model. You've set the perfect example for me. I have learned so many things from you, dear mama, and I feel so blessed to have those teachings in my mind. I know that I will be well prepared in my future because of the many things you've taught me.

You've been a wonderful wife and mother. You have such a sweet and loving heart.

Your heart is so pure, and it shows inside and out!

Thank you for constantly loving your children and family.

Your love is constantly pouring out, and you are such a sweet and giving person. I am so thankful to have a mother who is a strong believer in God. You have taught me so much about God and His Word. You are a precious woman to me, and you will always be!
There are so many other words I could say... But, to shorten the length of this letter to you, I will conclude by saying, "THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!"
May the Lord bless you, Mama. I love you with all of my heart!

Your Daughter,


Have a blessed day, dear friends. Please wish your mother a Happy Mother's Day from our family!

Your Sister In Christ,
