Happy Easter With Ellie, Emma, and Kiley

Happy Easter everyone!! I hope you all are having a wonderful day. Today, since it is Easter some of my lovely friends Ellie, Emma and Kiley, and I all did a kind of Easter post together. Each of us wrote what Easter means to us and a few of our family's Easter traditions. I hope you all enjoy this post and have a lovely Easter day! :)

Shelby: Easter is a celebration of Jesus dying on the cross to take away our sins. Ever since I was little my Mom has always  told us the resurrection story on Easter. I never really thought much about the story much. I just thought it was a story from the Bible that my Mom would tell again and again. When I was either nine or ten years old (I can't really remember) my family and I were sitting in our living room watching a Christian music video. Towards the end of the video it showed a man on a cross. The man was covered in blood and was moaning. He was in absolute agony! When I seen that video I realized how much the Lord actually loved and cared for me. He sent his only son to die for me! Me! A horrible sinner! Jesus went through so much pain so that my sins could be forgiven.

When the video was over I ran to my room and cried. I got down on my knees and thanked the Lord for sending his son to die for me. The thought that he actually died for me was kind of overwhelming! But it felt good to know how much he cared. Every year when Easter comes around I think of that day. It reminds me of how much the Lord cares for all of us.

 And that, my dear readers, it what Easter means to me! :)

Now I'm going to be talking about some of your Easter traditions.
Well, of course we always paint Easter eggs on the night before Easter, and ever year our family always makes a resurrection garden. I actually did a post last Easter on how to make one! You can go see the post here. And we always have Easter lunch with my grandparents and our aunt, and once in awhile we go to sunrise service. When we are all awake! ;P

Ellie: Why I love Easter is because it reminds me of God's great love. Not just towards me, but everyone. I just think about those people who whipped him and Judas who betrayed him. And everyone who put the thorns on his head and I say, "Wow God." Because he died for them. Even though they wanted him to be dead forever and despised him he died for them so that they could live. And everyday I hope I can love people like Jesus. And forgive people like him. I also love Easter because I know that someday he will be coming to take me home. And what a glorious day that will be. No sickness no more. No sin. And we can live forever with Jesus! I don't know how anybody wouldn't want to do that. He is so powerful that he rose! And not only today should be reminded of this but every single day! Thanks you Jesus for such a great love to me and everyone!

Emma: And you can read Emma's here! :)

Hey everybody!  It is a great pleasure to get to do a guest post on this blog! I was very honored when Shelby asked me to do a post and it was lots of fun to answer the questions! A little bit about me is: I'm 14 and I love to read and write. I live and have lived my whole life on a ranch in southwestern Mt called Silver Spring Ranch. I love everything (or about everything) about this way of life. Since a young age dad has been very good about letting me follow him pictorially where ever he goes. I have five siblings so there is six of us in all. Ages range from sixteen down to three. It's a very busy house but I love it! We are all home schooled and I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. God has truly blessed me with such a wonderful family and place to live. So, with all that said enjoy this post!

MMC# 3/11/16 ~ I'm Back!!

Hello everyone!! I am back with a short story for the Monday Minute Challenge! Can I just say that I am so happy to be back? Because I really am!! :) I missed you all so much! Now, lets get going with this post.  I used the photo, and sentence prompt, and the story is 221 words. I had so much fun writing this story and I hope you all enjoy reading it! :) Have a lovely day!

"Get up you yellow-belly freak!" she cried. Her talons glistened with blood, and her eyes were filled with hatred.

I struggled to get up, the pain in my side hurt deeply. I could feel heat rushing through my blood. A feeling I only got when I was angered. It started out as a little spark, and then it grew. I held the fireball in my hand, sweat trickling down my face from the heat. She cackled viciously.

"Do you think," she cried through breaths of evil laughter, "that you can stop me?"

The anger built up inside me even more. The fire that I held in my hand grew larger than it ever had before.

"Come on Jack." she said, her teeth glistening yellow, "Come Jack.....Jack...Jack..."

Her voice was drowning out and her body was becoming a blur.

"Jack!" I heard a familiar voice call. "Jack!"

I woke up with a start. Sweat trickled down my face.

"Jack, are you ok?" my 11 year old sister asked looking at me with panic.

"I...I.." I said through gulps of air. " I had the dream again."

Suddenly, I remembered the pain in my side. I looked down to find dark red blood flowing from my body.

"Maybe," my sister said, her hands trembling, " isn't a dream."
