something about a sunset

It was a beautiful sunset...and, um, yeah...my sister and I took the camera outside and we had at it.

Pictures 5, 6, 8 and 9 were taken by my lovely sister, Grace, (why don't you check out her blog?) and edited by me. The rest of the images were taken and edited by me. :)

“There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.” 
-Jo Walton

"When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.

 -Mahatma Gandhi

It Isn't Too Late

^ made by me...

I've written a new poem. I hope that you enjoy reading it...
God has helped me so many times, when I felt like I had ruined too many things to carry on. He somehow always manages to let me know that He's still here with me, and that I haven't ruined enough for Him to ever stop loving me. 


my mind has wandered away from me
gone to ride the train of memory
gone to bring back all the boxes I closed
all my fears, secrets and all my woes
reminding me of the past
and of chances I’ve lost
reminding me that there were things
I didn’t do right.
it’s keeping me up at night
it’s making me cry
it’s making me wonder why
I was so foolish then
sometimes I feel like
I wasted my beginning.
help me to know you’re here
to know you’re near
help me to realize
that today is today
and the past is the past
help me to give in
to your forgiveness and love
please give me a shove
to take the gift of salvation
you’ve offered me.
tell me what you’ve already told me
that with you it’s never too late
show me that I’m not the same me
come in, in to my heart
give me the lyrics
to the song of a new start.
tell me what you’ve already told me
even in my state
it isn’t too late.


Exodus 15:13
"In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling."

first post on my new blog (happy!)

Just like that, I've moved blogs and now I have a brand new blog. I've come from here and now I'm here. I've waded through codes, worked in photoshop, followed tutorials, done everything I could to make my 'fresh start' work out right. 
It's so good to be back to posting. I know it was barely a while since I was regularly posting on my 'old' blog (it's sad and at the same time nice to be referring to it in that way), but it feels like ages. I felt quite- disconnected...
I'm happy with the way my blog looks/is now. Well, almost. I think I still have a few changes I think I'd like to make. But what do you think? Do you like the design? I was going for a sort of clean, professional (but at the same time pretty) blog design. Tell me if I succeeded. (at least a little?) And do you have any suggestions for anything on my blog? I still want to add a button.
I hope to get most of my followers back. Would you mind spreading the news a little, telling people that I need some more followers now that I've just lost a whole bunch on my 'old' blog? Haha...that would be nice. Looking forward to doing more on this blog.
Thanks so much to everyone who has followed me so far, and thank you to the others who have followed my 'old' blog quite a way back. I've had lots of adventures in blogging there, and all together I had posted 187 posts. Wow. And now it will be inactive. But I had so much fun there. And like I think I said sometime before, I might post some of my old posts here once in a while. Some of the ones I like.
Thank you for reading this first post of my new blog. (Not including the test post. That was meant to be deleted from the beginning...sorry to all who commented. I appreciated it.)
