Life!

Hey, friends!  To begin, I'm sooo excited that summer is right around the corner!
I just wanted to post about what's been going on these last couple of weeks.  #1 on my list of recent highlights is the fact that I got my braces off!!  Yay!  Any of you who have/had braces will know how exciting this is!  Bring on the caramel popcorn!! ;)
After my ortho appointment was finished, I had to take a selfie with my little sis while we were eating lunch!
Last week my mom and I went to see the Winter Jam movie which was awesome!  I was really not wanting to take a picture here, but Mom insisted and I'm so glad we did! ;D

And I just finished my junior year in homeschool high school. :) Fun, fun! 

We've also had a flu going around, which is not so fun at all! :p I haven't got it yet, but with a house full of sick siblings, it's likely only a matter of time. :o It's especially miserable being sick when it's sunny and warm outside!

I love hearing from all of you!  If you're still in school, what grade will you be finishing?  What have you been up to lately?  What are you looking forward to in the coming summer?

Have a very blessed day!
Love,
Elyse

Hello, My Name Is {Matthew West}

I'm sure all of you have heard this song many times, but it's such a great reminder that I think we need hear every day.  If Jesus is your Savior, you are indeed a child of the one true King!


Hello, my name is regret

I'm pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
I'm the whisper inside
That won't let you forget

Hello, my name is defeat

I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
I'll drag you right back down again
'Til you've lost all belief

These are the voices, these are the lies

And I have believed them, for the very last time

Chorus:

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed, and I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

Verse 2:

I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it's true
Just take a look at my life

Chorus:

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed, and I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

Bridge:

What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King

What love the Father has lavished upon us

That we should be called His children

Chorus:

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed, and I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I am a child of the one true King
