White Pellets

My night pictures almost never do it justice, but tonight
we were blessed with our very first snow of the season! It's
so pretty, especially as we sat around watching Christmas
movies and filling out Christmas cards. Can't believe
Christmas is only three days away.

It's awful that Christmas means sadness to some people
because of some loss in their lives, present of past. I hope
that somehow you can still find joy in the season of hope!

KINGDOM HEARTS III – D23 2017 Toy Story Trailer

YES!!! Toy Story will be in Kingdom Hearts 3! I am thrilled. We were wondering
what new worlds would be put in it, and I kept saying, "They have to put Toy Story
in there somewhere! If they don't, I am going to be very disappointed." You should've
seen me the day I found this! I squealed with delight so hard and practically
sprang out of my chair. I ran to Annah's room to tell her and she was
excited too. Looking forward to this game when it comes out. Can't wait
to see what will become of Aqua, Terra, and Ven!

BTW, I am planning a big blog update later this week on what's been going
on with us! I'm a writer, and sometimes I like to write deep things, but putting
it on the blog is so time-consuming. But then, just a bunch of random posts
feels blah. So, Lord willing, I will have a new blog update later this week!

Love, Rebecca

THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS | Official Trailer | In theaters November 22

I am so looking forward to this movie! Since watching Beauty and the
Beast, I've wanted to watch Dan Stevens in a new movie. But it's more than
that: he is portraying the great Charles Dickens. He is playing the role of a
writer. I watched the trailer, watched him trying to perfect his characters,
coming up with them, who they are, that terrible writer's block, being in
his element. When I watched the trailer, I'm like, "Yep. Oh, yes! I know how
that feels. I want to see this movie!!" I love, love, love writing. Can't wait.

I know that Charles Dickens is not the person who invented Christmas-in case
anyone should start any controversies about it-. And to be honest, A Christmas
Carol is not my favorite Christmas story. Every version I've watched has been
scary to me, even the old cartoon Mickey's Christmas Carol. But this is different.

Let's not forget what happened 16 years ago today. I remember it was
a beautiful, bright day exactly like this one. I was ten-years-old.
Thankfully, my family and I did not lose any friends or loved
ones that day, but countless others did. Be sure to take at least
a moment today to remember those who sacrificed their lives
in order to save others, those pulled together to offer comfort to
each other, those who lived to tell, and those endured tragic loss.

Remember 9/11, 2001.

May in Review

I haven't forgotten you. I have been very, very
busy writing my stories on Fanfiction and am having a blast.
I'm still in the process of getting registered for the CNA
training program, Lord willing. I still have other reviews
I plan to do for Beauty and the Beast live-action film.
Ryan is just growing and talking more, very cute!
Hope this update is good.

Ryan before he got his haircut. He sure does enjoy McDonald's.
He was happy to get this book from a garage sale.
Playing at a farm. Some people had a big gathering for foster
families. Ryan had a blast.
Watching Dad with a fish.
Somebody likes to imitate Dad!

Icing. Yum!

Annah made me a cake to celebrate...
It's official! With God's help, I passed my
driving test! I have my license now! And
driving has been great.


I can't believe we have a swing-set now.


Happy Mother's Day!

Some friends invited us to Six Flags, where
we haven't been since I was 11!
Waiting in line for Thunder River on a hot day.
And waiting...and waiting...



That is me exactly! Sadly, I am not a patient
person, and these were my thoughts even before
I found this picture.
Shopping at Barnes & Noble, playing with a
golden retriever puppy at Petland, and going
to ColdStone Creamery for my birthday!

"Belle" reprise part 1

One of my personal favorite scenes in the movie. She acts silly as she makes
fun of the very idea of marrying Gaston, yet her mindset on the matter is
dead serious! My favorite lyrics about Gaston in the whole movie.

DOC Some Gave All Part 3

Let's not forget! And it's still going on. Dear Troops, you ARE remembered
and prayed for, and not just today! I hope you know that. Your families and
close friends too! Thank for your service!!! The Kellum Family

While I'm Waiting - FIREPROOF Soundtrack

Life is good right now, but I've been thinking too much about how
horrible a fictitious villain character is way too much lately. Need to
fill my mind with good vibes, Scripture, focusing on praiseworthy
things, and this is one of Annah's and my favorite songs. I had
such a blast last week while we were cleaning at one of our accounts,
I was alone downstairs, with my smart phone in my pocket, attached
to my new earbuds, and listening to this song while I pulled trash and mopped.
It was an amazing feeling, especially to think that even in ways like
this I'm trying to serve the Lord, but also that being faithful in the little
things counts more than we think.

Gaston punches Maurice BatB Clip 2017

Maurice was very brave to stand up for and protect his daughter here! Gaston, beast!

Lefou calms down Gaston BatB clip

Okay, you big brute. I am frosted! This time you've gone too far! I'll
admit, Lefou is funny here, but this whole woods scene made me so upset
 that I wrote a fanfic story for it, There IS a Beast Running Wild!
Only in it, I wrote that Belle arrived and witnessed part of the terrible
scene! Gaston, you're such a jerk! If murder is the way you respond to
'no', there's something seriously wrong with you, you punk!

Christ the Lord is Risen Today!

I'm thankful for Easter. I'm thankful that Jesus Christ not only
willingly, freely died the most grueling death in history
to save a lost sinner like me, and then rose again to life
for eternity! I'm thankful that my immediate family and
me have received Jesus as our personal Savior, and that
He is indeed alive!

The Gospel of John film production is my
favorite live-action portrayal of Jesus' life and
ministry here on earth.
Dealing with the Pharisees and the woman
caught in adultery. He did not compromise
His own law!
When he met Nathanael.
John the Baptist-One of my favorite verses: "Behold, the Lamb
of God who takes away the sin of the world!" John 1:29
John 3:16
Meeting Peter
Visiting the Samaritans after talking with the woman at the well.
Palm Sunday
Raising Lazarus from the dead
He "did not come to be served, but to serve."
"Love one another." John 13:34
John 15-17
"It is finished!!" John 19:30
O Head Once Filled with Bruises
1. O Head, once filled with bruises,
Oppressed with pain and scorn,
O'er-whelmed with sore abuses,
Mocked with a crown of thorn!
O Head, to death once wounded
In shame upon the tree,
In glory now surrounded
With brightest majesty!
2. Thou Lord of all transcendent,
Thou life-creating Sun
To worlds on Thee dependent,
Yet bruised and spit upon!
O Lord! what Thee tormented
Was our sin's heavy load;
We had the debt augmented,
Which Thou didst pay in blood.
And He is still watching over us, even if we
can't see Him and sometimes even though we
feel like He isn't nearby!
"...And lo, I am with you always,
even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:20
