Guest Post; A little about Me
(While I would love to to take credit for this picture………I can’t, my older sister took it. The colors are so beautiful I just COULD NOT resist putting it in here.Is she not a amazing photographer!!?)
Well hi there!! My name is Averey, I have 4 sibling and one arriving in August. My wonderful family and I live in North-East Tennessee on three acres with eight chickens, four pet rabbits, and one dog.
Some things I really enjoy are:
Spending family time. Family time is really special to me because my dad works five days a week twelve to fourteen fours a day…….. So you can see that those two days of family time are wonderful, they mostly are filled to the brim with fun times and hard work!!
I also enjoy spending time in God’s wonderful Word and prayer, painting ,knitting, gardening, spring through fall, and I simply LOVE baking/cooking and trying out new recipes and creating my own, yet my one weakness is…….I never write down my new recipes. So it is a never ending cycle of new recipes!!!!:)
I LOVE reading. If you were to ask me my favorite book I would probably start bubbling over about how much I love C.R Hedgecock’s
”Baker Family Adventures”. I mean literally, in my opinion, they are the BEST SERIES EVER!!!!! If you have not read them you NEED too, you seriously don’t know what your missing!
Some more of my favorite books and authors are;
The Barn Chronicles, by Rosie Boom,
Abby and the South Sea Adventures, by Pamela Walls,
Red Rock Mysteries, by Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry, and,
Sisters in Time, by Various Authors.
Writing Poetry is something I have been doing ever since I was since I was very little, I love it! One day I would love to publish a book of my poetry. I will include some at the end of this post.
I also have a passion for singing and instruments. I mainly play the violin and mandolin, but I also play piano, some chords on guitar, and I am a budding banjo player. Singing is something I love telling myself that I am good at…….but the only people I sing in front of is my family……so I am not sure if I am good or not!!
Writing is another thing I enjoy. I write poetry, pen-pals, and short stories…..and now, guest posts! Right now I am working on two stories-one on the Mount Shasta Snowstorm, 1959, California, and another one on a family finding God through a great time of sorrow. Do you like writing?
Sibling time.What do you think of when you hear that? Some people just think of a few minutes with your siblings, just little chats.
But no, I think of bonding time, a time to get to know your siblings,, what they don’t like and what they do, a time to find out how you can pray for them, a time to REALLY get to know them,but be kind to them. And when they do something unkind, forgive them even when you don’t feel like it.
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
So cherish sibling time, it is truly a wonderful gift from God!!
I really love talking,
Especially in prayer,
I mean, your talking to God,
Who has numbered every hair!
Some people say,
That prayer is just words,
But I think it can be a song,
With lots and lots of chords!
But to God ALL prayer is special,
Because He loves us all,
Prayer is a real conversation,
So listen to His call!
The Iris Queen
The beauty of a iris,
Is like that of a queen,
They stand so tall and proud,
The most beautiful I have seen!
She rules her garden well,
Just like a flower should,
I suppose she does better,
Then I ever could!
I never thought a flower,
Could give us such delight,
But, I now know I was mistaken,
The Iris Queen is ever so bright!
Moonlight and Stars
The stars are out tonight ,
A beautiful chance for gazing,
The stars are alive,
Like a beautiful fire blazing!
The moonlight so bright,
A wonderful night,
To study and learn,
What a gorgeous sight!
Moonlight and Stars,
Are both Gods creation,
God created them,
Just like He did the nation!
A flash of red,
I see so suddenly,
A Red Bird to the waterbed,
It flew so quickly,
Maybe to its nest,
But I heard it’s song,
Chirpity- Chirp till it had to rest,
It’s song I heard,
Was joyful and loud,
That’s my little Red Bird!
I hope you enjoyed this guest post about me!
Love in Christ,
