Georgia, Florida, Best friends!

Hello People, I haven't done a blog post because Alyssa's (My Sister's) computer, that holds all of our photo's, isn't working right. So therefore I can't upload any to my blog. But last Friday was the Homeschool fair!!! It was so fun!! I loved it, I helped work an HSLDA booth with one of my best friends Caroline!! It was awesome.

I am also leaving for Georgia early Friday morning! To a best friend's cabin (seen in posts below), it's going to be amazing as always!!! Then Saturday night I'm taking a 3 hour drive to Florida again for a week!!! I cannot wait.

So be looking for pictures in the near future. Hopefully.

Love you all!


PS. All of this will happen Lord Willing. I just needed to add that.

Star wars according to a 3 year old: This is so cute!

I know after my last mature post how dumb to post this! But it was just so cute!

"the light up sword" and "the poky ball"??! How could I resist? I have a weakness for adorable children.


Because in the books of Proverbs there are 31 chapter (as if you didn't know) according to the day of the month, is the chapter that we read. So there is a chapter for each day of the month. Yesterday I read chapter eight, and I really enjoyed reading this:
1 Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice?
2 On the heights beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand;
3 beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud:
4 "To you, O men, I call, and my cry is to the children of man.
5 O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.
6 Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right,
7 for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
8 All the words of my mouth are righteous; there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.
9 They are all straight to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.
10 Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold,
11 for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.
12 "I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion.
13 The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
14 I have counsel and sound wisdom; I have insight; I have strength.
15 By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just;
16 by me princes rule, and nobles, all who govern justly.
17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
18 Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness.
19 My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice,
21 granting an inheritance to those who love me, and filling their treasuries.
22 "The LORD possessed me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old.
23 Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth.
24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth,
26 before he had made the earth with its fields, or the first of the dust of the world.
27 When he established the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep,
29 when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth,
30 then I was beside him, like a master workman, and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always,
31 rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children of man.
32 "And now, O sons, listen to me: blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it.
34 Blessed is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors.
35 For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the LORD,
36 but he who fails to find me injures himself; all who hate me love death."

I felt like verse one was saying that Wisdom and understanding are there but we refuse it. Or we are blinded to, because we're so caught up in the things of the world, or even just a busy life.

And in verse 17 says  "I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me." 

I have been so lame lately at seeking Him diligently. Not only in just reading His Word, but praying and living for Him in general. People sometimes say " I feel like my fire has just burnt out" But who's fault is that? It's definitely Not God's fault. Therefore the blame is completely on me.  

Verse 33 says "Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it."  Wow, I almost wanted to skip this one, but I knew I wouldn't get away with it.. If you lived with me you would probably understand. I am REALLY not good at accepting instruction. Which is a proud arrogant thing. So I have also been praying deeply about that.

I have been learning so much lately, plus we are going to a new Church that has simply amazing teaching. It's really incredible.

Call it what you want!

Okay, here's the memo. Everyone is always asking me, do I prefer being called "Madison" or "Maddie" and the same with my blog, for a long time I was Madison, then I was Maddie M, then I was Madison McKenzie. So from now on you can "Call it what you want". Or it can be the "call it what you want" blog.  Because frankly, I don't care. Most people think that their offending me when they say "Hey Maddie" instead of "Hey Madison" Or if they spell it *M-a-d-d-y* instead of *M-a-d-d-i-e*. Seriously people, do I seem that weird?

So here's to a happy blog header! That you can call what you want!

Love you all bunches!

Hey Guys, sorry that I've been such a lame blogger. Summer gets kind of busy sometimes. I have so many pictures from the 4th of July, that it's not even funny. The only problem that I have is, Alyssa's laptop the one we use to upload all of our photo's, is at the Mac store, being fixed.

And here are the lyrics to another song that I can't seem to find the acoustic version of.

The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend,
The agonies of Calvary.
You, the Perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son,
Drank the bitter cup reserved for me.

Your blood has washed away my sin,
Jesus, thank You.
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied,
Jesus, thank You.
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table,
Jesus, thank You.

By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near,
Your enemy made Your friend.
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace,
Your mercy and your kindness know no end.

Your blood has washed away my sin,
Jesus, thank You.
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied,
Jesus, thank You.
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table,
Jesus, thank You.
