MATTHEW 5: 14 - 16
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.

  17. Tashia! Hi there! I found your blog from your comments on the Bates' family website and I've been on your blog here and there. :) Nothing thrills my heart more than to see a young lady walking with and pursuing God. Don't ever stop pursuing Him. Don't ever stop following Him. Walk with Him. Keep your eyes on Him alone. It is so worth it!
    Favorite Bible verse...hmmm... Such a hard choice! Ephesians 3:19 is especially meaningful to me right now. "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God."
    Thank you for hosting this fun giveaway! And happy blogaversary! Great job being diligent and persistent in posting!

      Because of Jesus,

  18. My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 4:23 ~ "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life."
    I follow you on Pinterest and just now found your blog! I will be starting my own blog in the near future and I am very excited to have found yours!!

  19. Thanks for hosting this giveaway! Congratulations on your blog's first birthday! I enjoy reading it. One of my favorite verses is Galatians 5:13, "For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another." This verse helps me a lot when I'm struggling to let go of something. God calls us to a life of liberty - He doesn't want us to be weighted down by all our 'problems'. Blessings as you continue walking with Him! Destinee Stoltzfus

  20. my favorite Bible verse is.. "we have this hope as an anchor to our soul, firm and secure and that which enters the presence behind the veil." Hebrews 6:19
