Checking In

HI!

I know that I've been gone for quite a while...
but....
       
                   I...
                                    HAVE...
                                                  REALLY...




REALLY

EXCITING

NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




I am working on creating a new blog to replace this one.  The reason for this is twofold.  One, because creating a new blog is a lot of fun. And two, because I think it would be great to have a fresh start.  I have not been keeping my blog on a focused path.  I would like to refocus it and stay with the game plan.  It is so easy to go on rabbit trails in the blogging world.


So iMeg will soon be....

- at a different site
- may have a different title
- will have a new design
- will be switched over to Wordpress (for design reasons) :)

I will update you with more details soon!

Sunshine Award

I'm finally posting this since it has been a month since I was awarded! :)




First of all thanks to Willa who awarded me.  You should go check out her blog right now because she is a great writer, and photographer, and blogger, (she's basically awesome at everything) :D  So click here to see her wonderful blog! 

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to his/her blog.

2. Nominate other bloggers and let them know on their blog.

3.  Answer the list of ten questions given.

4.  The sunshine award must be posted on your blog.


So here we go!

1.  What is your favorite Bible verse?

I would have to say John 10:27-29 which says, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.  I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.”

2. Would you sacrifice your life it would save that of a strangers?

It would totally depend on the circumstance.  I don't know why a situation like this would happen but you never know :)

3.  Given the chance to swim with dolphins... would you accept?

I'm not very fond of animals but I guess swimming with dolphins could be fun.  However, I would not accept.

4.  Are you more fascinated by light or darkness?  Why?

I am more fascinated by light.  The way it bounces off of things and makes rainbows is amazing.  I am also awestruck at the way your pupils respond to light.  When there is an abundance of light in a room, your pupils are small, but when it is dark your pupils are huge!  I think it is awesome that the Creator made our eyes this way!

5.  Can you speak in a different accent?

Not well.  I can kind of do a British accent though.  I hear if you say "raise up lights" really fast it sounds like "razor blades" in an Australian accent.  (And now your trying it.  I know you are)  It works!

6.  Would you rather be disliked or forgotten?

  Honestly, neither of these are fun but I would rather be disliked. 

7.  Has the ocean ever filled your dreams?

I'm not one for remembering my dreams (unless they are crazy, blow your mind away kind of dreams) but I'm sure at some point I have had a dream with an ocean involved.

8.  Assuming you have one, how often is your journal put to use?

I do have a journal (it's actually pretty cute) but I'm horrible at being consistent with it.  I wish I journaled more often than I do.  

9.  What is your favorite fictional character of all time?

Anne in Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery  (although I haven't read the whole book), August Pullman in Wonder by R.J. Palacio, and Ida B in well... Ida B by Katherine Hannigan.  These are just some of my favorites.

10.  What is your favorite hymn?

A few of my faves are: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing,  How Great Though Art, Holy, Holy, Holy, Blessed Assurance, and practically every other hymn on the planet!!

Well this has been jolly!  Thanks again to Willa for awarding me!  

Oh, I almost forgot... I'm nominating:

Anna who blogs here.

Rebekah who blogs here.

I was awarded again so I will be posting that soon!  Also, keep an eye out because I'm going to start a new series where I share my favorite books of the month! :)

Have a great week everyone!!!!

Weekend Music Video! :)


The weekend is finally here.  Our gang has been fighting nasty colds and fevers this week.  Prayers are appreciated. :)  To celebrate the weekend, I have a fun music video to share with you.  The song is called, "To Love You Back."  It is from Jamie Grace's new album, "Ready to Fly."  You should check out the rest of her album when you get a chance.  I promise that you won't regret it.  Without further ado.....





I love the message in this song.  Christ loved us first and we have the chance to love Him back.  I love the part that says, "I get to know you more and more, and make every single day about You, I wanna live like I can't afford, to spend another second without You."


If we stopped focusing so much on ourselves and started focusing on Christ by making every single day about Him I think our lives would look a lot different.  I want to live like that.

 The last part of the song says: "So I answer the call, I give You my all, I lay it at Your feet, I can't praise You enough, but I promise to give You my love."


This weekend I want that to be my goal.  Who else is with me?  

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Love,
Meg

Happy Valentines Day!  Today may we remember that the King loves us dearly, more than anyone else.  May we glorify Him this Valentines Day and the rest of the year through all we say and do!

Winter Unity - It's the Little Things

 Glittery but fresh.  Sparkling, but quiet.  Luxurious, but soft.  The snow lays on the wet grass.  In several places you can see the pointy blades popping up through the sleek, slippery, snow.  Somehow there is silence outside on this icy evening.  To some people this picturesque scene is nothing out of the ordinary.  To others, every time snow falls it is like a taste of heaven.




Shivering people come into a warm house where they are joyfully welcomed.  The fire is glowing, hot chocolate is being served, and inside this house there is something unique.  Something that you don't find in the middle of summer, spring or fall.




Little children wake-up and peek out their frost covered windows to find snow falling from the sky.  "Maybe school will be closed and we can go outside and play!" they excitedly exclaim.  There is something different inside children that can't be found in any other season.


Could that something be unity?  A warm hug on a cold night.  Reading books around the fire together.  Lending a jumper chord to a friend who can't start their car.  Wrapping that sweet little baby in blankets and quilts until she is nice and toasty.  It's the little things.  Fresh snow, on a cold dark night.   People sharing together and being united.  Love is everywhere.



Warm winter wishes!  
Meg

Merry Christmas (Late)

Okay, so I'm a week late on wishing you all a Merry Christmas but now is better than never so, Merry Christmas!  I wrote a poem and took a picture to share with you today.  The poem is about how we can still celebrate Christmas even after Christmas.  Without further ado…..


Christmas all Year 'Round!
by 
ME!

Christmas is over, the stockings are down.
But we can remember the joy, and the sounds.
As you look at this candle, the flame so tall.



Remember Christ, who is Lord of all.
Our sins are forgiven because of him.
Now we can be born again.
He came to exchange our darkness with His light.
We can continue to thank him every day, every night.
Though Christmas is over and the tree is down.
We can remember Christ's love all year 'round.
