Awesome Grace by Bebashy

A story written by my friend at Stories from a Teenage Writer.



My heart was dark and cold as night
and hard as mountain's root.
Then He came in, with His white light
and changed from stone to flesh.

A miracle He worked in me,
a work of awesome grace.
And now in Him I'm whole and free
and sing with endless praise.


I know on high I'll be with Him
and live forevermore,
In glorious presence of His face
beyond all earthly lore.

Winter Days

Don't you just love the days of the year when it's cold outside, but it's warm inside. :)






Missions Conference ended this week at my church. After talking to the missionaries and hearing their testimonies, I have decided that if it's God's will for me to be a missionary, I will. In fact, unless God makes it clear that it's not His will, I'm determined to be one. :)

 It was great having Dr. Jimmy DeYoung preach at our missions conference this week.

P.S.  I am writing another short story and I will post it as soon as I am done. :D If you would like to read my other one, click HERE

This post is about what the title says. :D

St. Augustine

A couple weeks ago my dad said, "Let's go to St. Augustine!" I had never been before and it's only about an hour away from us so I said, "Sure." Of course I took the opportunity to bring my new camera. (I have admitted to myself that it is going to take years to figure this camera completely out.) Here are some of them.




In case you're wondering, that is my dad at the end of a cannon that exploded.

I didn't know they had electricity back then!

Oldest schoolhouse



A last look at the fort.
That was the first time I had ever been in a fort. It was awesome!
