This is Kaelyn @ Kaelyn’s Life here and I am excited to be here to do a Bible Verse Dissection with me as Dr. Kaelyn! 😛
Hope you all are hanging in there with the whole quarantine thing right now. I hope this Bible verse is encouraging to you today, even among all of the crazy going on in our world today.
This verse is my memory verse for Torch Team( the youth discipleship/leadership class at my church) and I actually still need to memorize this, lol.
The verse is Romans 15:13 and we will be using the ESV version and the TPT as well.
Get your gloves on because it is time to dissect this amazing verse. ( sorry for the weird comparison lol #sorrynotsorry lol) anways,
and moving right to our verse… 😛
Alright, can we just all just take a moment to see just how incredible this verse is?!! This verse is super encouraging, especially for this interesting time we are all in right now.
At the beginning of 2020, I imagine most of us were not thinking in just a few months we would be dealing with a world-wide pandemic but Jesus has placed us in this time for a reason. He has placed you in this time for a reason.
“May the God of hope“.. God is a God of hope, not of hopelessness.
Two Christian speakers, Steve and Wendy Backlund said this, “There are no hopeless situations but only hopeless people.”
In this time, let’s not be a people without hope but a people brimming with hope but the verse continues to say this “fill you with all joy and peace in believing“.
Our God is a God of hope filling us with joy and peace in our believing. Right now, we can choose joy and we can choose to look at our situations from a higher perspective declaring “There is always a solution!” because there is!! Let’s have joy and peace in this situation because this is who we are as Christians! It’s our joy and delight in our Father and it is his joy and delight to delight in you, never forget that!
JESUS IS SO PROUD OF YOU!!
We can’t hope and worry at the same time because they are direct opposites. This is something that the Backlunds said in their message that I listened to on”The Power of Hope”.
“so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope“. In Holy Spirit and by his power, WE CAN ABOUND IN HOPE! Not just touch it, not just dust hope a little bit then leave, no, we are called TO ABOUND IN HOPE! We are called to live a life of overflow with hope, joy, and peace.
Jesus is calling us to live in this fiery lifestyle and he is here to help us along the way. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be perfect, Jesus, if you are a follower of Jesus, he accepts you and calls you..
We are all called to live in joy and in hope!! This is who we are called to be! 😀 Joy is who we are and hope is who we are. THIS IS WHO WE ARE!!
Believe that you are worth it, and in this odd time right now, we can look at this verse and see that our Heavenly Daddy abounds in hope and joy and us as His kids, we can too.
I hope this was encouraging to you today and I will see you all soon!! Next month’s guest post from me will either be another Bible Verse Dissect or Genealogy Gardener post.
If you have any questions, or you saw anything in this verse that stood out to you, or you have never asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, I would love to talk with you and I know Ezra would be free to do as well.
Thanks again Ezra for letting me be able to post on here!!
Until we meet again! 😀
Romans 15:13 The Passion Translation (TPT)
13 Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!
In the church, we hear people talk about prophecy all the time. Sometimes God is telling us to prophesy, but we have questions. What is prophecy? Why do we prophesy? What does the bible say about prophecy?
What is prophecy?
Let’s look at 2 Peter 1:20-21, “knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
So, prophecy is from God. It is not us speaking, but hearing. God uses us, his children, to reflect his words to people around us. We are like God’s mirrors. We are just like God’s prophets who wrote the bible. It says in the verse “knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation.” That means that Paul, Peter, John, Mark, everyone who wrote the bible were all speaking what they were hearing from God. They were reflecting his words. We can follow that example because we are God’s prophets too.
Take a look at 1 Corinthians 14:3, “On the other hand, the one who prophesies speaks to people for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation.” That’s what prophecy is. God uses us to encourage people and build them up. First we hear God, then we speak what he says to people around us who God wants us to encourage or build up.
I think of prophecy as a message inspired by God, a divine revelation from God that you can share and use to encourage others. Prophecy is always speaking truth from God. It says in 1 Corinthians 12:10 that prophecy is a spiritual gift from The Holy Spirit. God gives us the gift of prophecy so that we can then help others around us and make them feel encouraged.
There are different types of prophecies. The gift of prophecy is for edification, encouragement, words of knowledge, and words of wisdom. However, there is another type of prophecy, the foretelling of the future. This kind of prophecy is already in the scriptures, so it is already done. In Revelation it says that we shouldn’t add to the word of God, so the foretelling is already done in the bible.
God sometimes gives people glimpses of the future, but if someone says that God gave them a prophecy about the future that doesn’t mean we should bank off of it when making decisions. God always speaks clearly, so I’m not trying to say that we shouldn’t always listen to what God says. Even though God always speaks clearly, that doesn’t mean that we always hear clearly. So, although God may give us a prophecy about the future, that doesn’t mean we should always go with something if people think that it was from God, because God may have been saying something else and we just misinterpreted it.
Why should we prophesy?
Well, does the bible say we should prophesy? Why is it good to prophesy? Who should prophesy? Take a look at Acts 2:17-18 in part of Peter’s sermon at Pentecost, “And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.”
We all have the gift of prophecy. Some of us walk in that gift more, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t all called to prophesy. Everyone should prophesy. In this verse, it’s not saying that only the “prophets” should prophesy, it says for everyone to prophesy. We are all prophets made in God’s image to reflect his words. It says in Proverbs “I will meditate on your precepts, and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; and I will not forget your word.” We’re living that out. Not only are we living it out but we, as God’s prophets are showing it to other people and reflecting it. We are setting an example, no matter how old you are. You’re not too young. Remember the verse in 1st Timothy? Don’t let anyone let down on you for your youth; set an example!
How do we prophesy?
Deuteronomy 29:29 says this, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” What God is telling us is being revealed. It’s revelation. Prophecy is what God is revealing to us, so that we can use it for edification. As prophets, we can use what God is revealing to us, and prophesy it to people around us.
Prophecy is revelation from God. To prophesy is to speak and edify to others what the Lord is telling you. If prophecy is meant to build each other up and encourage each other, then if we’re not being encouraging then we know we’re not doing it right. Or if it goes against God’s word then we’re not doing it right. Since prophecy is revelation from God, then it can’t be against his word.
We need to believe that what we are hearing is from God, we need to BELIEVE that we can hear God and prophesy his words of revelation. You can’t just use the fact that you don’t know for sure that it’s from God as an excuse. As long as it’s not against God’s word then go for it! Even if God didn’t tell you to prophesy for someone, you still got to encourage somebody. If God did tell you to though, and you didn’t listen because you thought it might not be from him, that means you disobeyed God. My main point here is this: Don’t not do it just because it might not be God.
One of my favorite quotes is by a guy named Joe Ewin, “Practice makes prophetic.” So, we can practice speaking God’s words over people in our lives, and that is prophecy. We never fail. We may have felt like what we say didn’t affect them at all, but sometimes we can make an impact by our encouragements even when we don’t know it. Even if you feel like you get rejected, you still get to step out in faith and boldness, and you get practice; and practice makes prophetic.
I encourage you to prophesy. Even in this hard time, think of a way you can prophesy. Build people up, encourage them, because that’s what they need right now.
That about wraps up the post. Thank so much for reading! I hope this post was really helpful for you guys. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

I know it has been a while since we’ve been able to do a regular WSC, but here we are. I’m still posting the scripture that I’m memorizing for Torch Team. If you don’t already know, I am in a group called Torch Team, where we pray, worship, memorize scripture, and have community together. It’s all people from 8th-12th grade.
Recently we have been listening to Steve and Wendy Backlund talk about joy, belief, and declarations. I really encourage you guys to listen to them. If you want to learn more about them, just go to https://ignitinghopeministries.com .
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13
It’s such a powerful verse. This verse is really trying to get you to believe in the fact that you have a God that can fill you with joy and peace. You see where it says “in believing”? You need to trust and believe with your whole heart that God can make you be filled with joy and peace. If you believe in that, then you may abound in hope, because your belief gives you hope.
I was just reminded of something that Wendy Backlund says, “It’s better to have great faith in little things, than to have little faith in great things.” We are always trying to do great things. We want people to see what we have done and look up to us. But if it’s such a big thing, then we often have little faith. The reason it is better to do a little thing with great faith is because God doesn’t measure what we do in how great it is, he measures our faith in doing it. That’s what we want, because that’s what God thinks of us, and that’s what matters. Fear the Lord. It doesn’t matter if other people think that what we are doing is not great. What matters, is if we think about how great God says it is.
That’s pretty much all I have to say about this verse. There are lots of other cool things about this verse, but that’s just what I took from it. If you see anything that you think is cool about this verse, then please put it in the comments.
Before we go, I have a couple quick announcements / updates. I told y’all a couple weeks ago that I am going to help my parents with their business. I’m going to be helping set up their website, and their going to pay me to help them with that.
Your probably wondering what exactly it is that they do. Well, that’s why I’m happy to announce that on June 1st or 2nd, there will be a guest post on Ezra’s Everything Spot by none other than my father, Curtis. He is going to be explaining about our business. The reason we will be waiting a full six weeks before he can make the post is because meanwhile we will be setting up the website and many other things for the business.
The other announcement is that I will be doing a collab with Kaeyln. We haven’t exactly figured out what kind of collab to do, but we’re figuring that out. You should probably expect to see it by next weekend.

It’s that time again!! Actually it’s passed that time again, but I was gone for a while when it was… So, we’re here again. Wow! 2 Years… A lot has happened in these two years. I really have literally no idea what we’re going to do, but I’m just gonna wing it (as usual).
So, just like last year, I am going to show you guys some songs to play. Actually, I’m going to show my Spotify playlist, and you guys can listen to it here. Now you guys know what I listen to every day. So, you can just turn that on, or some of your favorite songs, and come join the party.
I guess, what I’ll do first is just list some of my stats on how well this blog has done in the past year. So, these are the stats since March 2nd 2019, because that was the first bloggiversary. Let’s go!
Followers:66 That’s actually a lot of followers considering the fact that I only have 91 followers in total. We’re nearing a hundred! If you think about it, 91 isn’t that many, but I am still very happy with it, not just because I have 91 people willing to click the follow button, but mostly because about 1/4 of all of those 91, really care. There are about 22-25 followers that are committed to my blog; meaning that they like, comment or show interest to my posts at least once a month. That’s amazing! Sometimes, people who have 1,000 followers, might have about 60 that really care and show interest to their posts, but that’s a lower percentage than 22 is out of 91. What I’m saying is, even though I don’t have that many followers, the fact that so many of them care is better to me.
Views:5058 WOW!! 5058 views in the past year! That’s just crazy! Nothing else to say here…
Visitors: 1194 Yikes! Ezra’s Everything Spot has been visited 1194 times within the last year! 1194 is a big number! This makes me know you guys care. The fact that you guys will continually come back and look at my posts is awesome. Thanks for caring guys!
Likes: 1179 That’s almost as many likes as views! And guess what? Not one unlike! 😉 That means that most of the times you visited my site it was because you liked one of my posts or pages, or one of Kaelyn’s posts or pages. Go Kaelyn!!
Comments: 1200 Ha ha!!! More comments than likes or views! That means you guys are chatty, or it means I’m chatty, because half of those comments are mine, but still, it’s cool!! I love comments! That’s the best part of having a blog!
Posts: 111 That’s a cool number! 111 Posts! That’s a lot! Kaelyn and I have done a lot of posts! That’s so crazy!
Words: About 50,000 It’s kinda hard to count words since March 2nd, but it’s about 50,000. Oh my goodness! That is a lot of words… I think it was mostly because of how many posts we made, because I usually have really short posts. My Average words per post right now is 734, which isn’t bad for me, but still a little short. It’s way better than it was though. I had an average of 418 words per post last year XD.
Best Month: October With 718 views, 90 visitors, 69 likes, 113 comments, and 7 posts October was probably the best month in this past year, as far as stats. I think one person just looked at tons of posts, because most of that is just views, the rest is pretty average. The best day was October 3rd (my mom’s b-day).
I think that’s all for stats. That took some math skills btw 😉 . Okay, so I have a couple more ideas…
Remember last year when I tried to do the month of collabs? Well, that kinda failed… Most of the time I didn’t end up getting to the collabs… I also realized that there have been times that I have done like a giveaway or something and I forgot to give the winners their rewards. So, if you still want to do those collabs, then just let me know on my contact page. Also, I’m truly sorry for not giving you your reward for a giveaway, so if you still want that reward and you didn’t ever recieve it, then let me know and make I’ll make sure you get it. Thanks guys!
Also, if anyone else wants to do a collab, I am totally up for it! I haven’t done a collab in a while, so if you are feeling collaby then just tell me! Especially if you have never done one with me before, then that will be loads of fun! Even if you have though, I would still love to collab with ya! Let me know.. 😉
Ooh! I have an idea, and I think I did this last year, but a lot of people do it for their bloggiversaries, so I’m gonna go for it! What you do is just tell your name, tell us about yourself, and give a link to your blog in the comments. This isn’t just a time for me to interact with y’all, but a time for you guys to interact with each other as well. I want you guys to be able to find each others blogs and get to connect. Most of you guys already follow each other, which I love that fact, but if you don’t, then make sure you meet some new peeps. Thanks!!!
If you would, then go ahead and share this post on your blog, so that everyone can join the party! People are bored right now, so I think everyone’s going to want to have a party, and possibly get some new followers while they’re at it.
Sorry if this is unprofessional or boring, but you guys can help make it fun, because frankly this blog runs mostly on follower power. If you guys can think of fun things to do, then I’ll do it next year, or just sometime fun even if it’s not the bloggiversary.
If your not following this blog… You might want to. And if that’s true, then go ahead and click the follow button to the left, or if your on the WordPress reader, it should be on the right, that way you don’t miss out on any awesome posts like this one 🙂 .
This was a super fun post to make! Thanks for checking it out! Peace out! -Ezra
Hey guys! I made a cool post on The Bloggers Project that I wanted to show you guys. I wanted to reblog it, but I don’t think I can reblog my own post. I tried and it didn’t work. So, I’m literally just copying and posting the entire post into here. So, here it is!
2 In 1 Real Neat Blog Award!|Guide for New Bloggers
Hey everyone! It’s your favorite author on The Bloggers Project! JK, it’s me, Ezra! How’s it going guys?
You may find it interesting that I am doing an award post on The Bloggers Project, instead of on my own blog (EES), but I am actually doing this for a few reasons. First of all, doing this is actually sharing my blogging experience, because awards are great ways to express your creativity, reach out to your blogger friends (help them out) / make new blogger friends, and also to get more traffic by others giving links to your blog.
So, not only are awards fun, but they are very helpful for us bloggers. I know there are a lot of new bloggers out there, especially during this time period, so if you have never done a blog award, then I’ll show you how it’s done in this post.
First of all I want to explain a few things. There are many different Blogger Awards. There’s the Liebtser Award, Real Neat Blog Award, Awesome Blogger Award, Sunshine Blogger Award, Randomness Award (created by my little brother who no longer has a blog), and many other awards. Typically all the awards are pretty similar. You have the award image, the rules, the participating in the award, and finally the nominating of other bloggers that really deserve the award.
Throughout this whole thing, I’ll try to give you new bloggers some helpful tips, so without further ado, let’s begin!
I usually start by thanking the person who tagged me/ nominated me. It’s usually in the rules, but even if it’s not, we want to show the nominator some love. So, thank you so much Esther from your blog Esther’s Nook (provide link to their blog)! I am so excited to get to do this award again!! Everyone be sure to check out Esther’s “Real Neat Blog” here (if you don’t know how to add a link to text, then shoot me a comment below, and I’d be happy to explain how).
Next, I usually display the award logo/ image, if there is one (sometimes there is not an official image), however, some people like to put it before thanking the nominator, or at the beginning of the post, it’s totally optional. To display the image, simply go to the site that nominated you, then copy the image and paste into your post.
Rules (follow these directions, and it should be pretty straight forward):
Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
Answer the 10 questions the blogger gave to you
Nominate four bloggers who deserve the award
Create 10 original questions for the nominees to answer
Let them know they’ve been nominated
Esther’s Questions / My Answers in Bold:
Who’s your favorite singer? Probably TobyMac, but my favorite band is Skillet.
What’s your favorite book of the Bible? Proverbs! Lots of wisdom.
What book are you currently reading? The bible… I actually just finished the book I was reading yesterday, so next I’ll probably read “Journey to the Center of the Earth.”
Do you like gum? Oh, yeah! I love blowing bubbles.
Do you have your own room? Nope. Have to share with my little brother, but hopefully I will in our next house.
Do you prefer cake or ice-cream? Ice-cream!!!!!!
If you had to live in a super cold place or a super hot place, which place would you pick? Probably super hot. I actually don’t mind the cold at all, but I’d rather live in a super hot place.
Do you have any pen pals? If so, how many? I have had pen pals in the past, but after not writing back for a while, we kinda just stopped. I do talk to people old friends, that live far away over email or FB.
What day did you get the most views on your blog? Good question. Let me go see! Well, since I’m talking about most views on The Bloggers Project, that would probably be December 19 2019.
What inspired you to start blogging? School… I actually had to start a blog as a project for school, but now I just do it because I love it. 😀
Anyone who has been blogging for less than 6 months, or if your just looking at me making this post, and are thinking that it would be so fun to make a blog, first of all, do it, then come do this award, because I just tagged you! I want to get you new bloggers started on awards, so you are nominated!!
This also counts for my next award, so if you guys want you can do both awards (as in, I’m not nominating anyone else for the next award)!
My Questions for the Nominees:
If you could go to a different planet, which one would you go to?
When was the last time you saw a meme that didn’t have to do with Baby Yoda or COVID-19 (bet you can’t remember)?
What’s your favorite video game?
Who’s your favorite actor / actress?
Pens or pencils?
What is your longest post ever (provide link if possible)?
Do you have freckles?
What’s your record for most pieces of pizza eaten in one meal (mine’s 13 at the age of 2, XD I don’t remember it, but my parents say it’s true)?
Can you lick your nose?
Sweet pickles or dill pickles?
Time for part 2!!
Okay everyone! I was nominated for this award twice recently so, now I’m going to do the other one. You don’t have to do more than one award in a single post, especially if that’s too much stress for you newer bloggers, but some people like do more than one in a single post to knock down two birds with one stone. I’m just doing this because I happened to be nominated for this specific award. Starting out, you probably won’t get nominated very often, but after about a year or two, you’ll most likely have to start putting things on the waiting list 😉 .
Remember what to do? This time I’m just going to go through the whole thing without listing anything. Ready? Go!
Thank you so much my man, Elisha! I love getting the opportunity to answer your super fun questions in these awards! Everyone be sure to check out Elisha’s blog, Africa Boy! He has put so much work into his blog; it’s very awesome, and he always has great content!
Display the blog award logo in your blog.
Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
Do not forget to link to their blogging website.
Answer all the questions they have given you.
Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers of your choice.
Ask them 7 questions.
Elisha’s Questions / My Answers in Bold:
1: Since you’re a real neat blogger, what would you say was your best post? Well, on this blog, probably my Tips for Blogging post. As for my personal blog, hmm…. Probably this one; not one of my most popular ones, but certainly one of my favorite ones to write.
2: Do you have any pets? Yes, a dog named Prince. Also my sister has a bunny named Boo.
3: What are you most convicted about? The fact that I am a loved child of God.
4: Which blogger is the biggest inspiration to you? (leave a link) I actually have two, both for different reasons. 1. You, Elisha, because you help me to realize how capable I am, I look at how great your content is, and I know that I can be great as well; even though your a kid, your one of the greatest writers I’ve ever seen, and that helps me have faith that I can be as well. 2. Keziah E. Keziah, you always encouraged me so much with every post that I write, that gives me confidence to keep going. Those are just two of the many awesome bloggers who have inspired me. Great question!
5: If you could write a book, what would it be about? Hmm… I don’t know, but probably some kind of realistic fiction.
6: Besides blogging, what do you like to do with your spare time? Play sports, mostly basketball and football, play my guitar and bass, play board games, play video games, read, drink coffee, research genealogy, watch movies, and much more.
7: Do you think you’ll make a career out of blogging? Probably. I don’t know for sure about blogging specifically, but I really like web design and I think I would be really good at it. I’m actually working on building a website for my parents, that they are eventually going to start paying me for.
My Questions (remember, I’ve already nominated people):
What’s your favorite beverage?
What’s one cool thing about you?
Do you like cooking? If so, then what do you cook the most?
What was the last book you read?
What was the last movie you watched?
If you could be a missionary, where would you want to be a missionary (this doesn’t apply to you, Elisha 😉 )? / Is God calling you to be a missionary somewhere?
What did you do for Easter (I’m writing this a day in advance, but I’m just assuming that you won’t do it until after Easter)?
Well, that about wraps up the post! Those of you who aren’t new (including myself), make sure to reblog this for the new bloggers out there on that are following your blog. Thank you so much for stopping by The Bloggers Project and taking time to read this post! If you haven’t already, then go ahead and click that follow button, I don’t where it is anymore because the team redesigned it while I was gone, but search around until you find the follow button, and smash it! That way you won’t miss out on any new posts. One last thing, speaking of the new design, I think Ariana did a great job! What do you guys think of it? Let us know in the comments below! C-ya later!!
Hey everyone!!!!!!! I’m back a day early because my youth pastors birthday is today, and he said that he is going to be breaking fast today, and we may join him, so I asked God and I got the OK, so I’m done fasting.
You have no idea how good it is to see you guys!!! This past month has been amazing / horrible, but I’m just happy to get to talk. So many things have happened since I have been gone.
I have been doing a prayer thing for the coronavirus every single day for 30 minutes, which has been amazing!!!! I did One Night in a Box (before the virus). I went on vacation for Spring break. I had my birthday (I’m 14 now). Also, I had the bloggiversary; though sadly we couldn’t celebrate it because of the fast, but we’ll make up for that.
Oh my goodness!!!!! This feels so good!!!! Sorry to be making such a big deal out of this, but it’s just so cool (I’m realizing that when I’m excited I can type really really fast). I noticed when I got on today that I have actually had a lot of traffic since I’ve been gone (surprising right?). Also, I now have 91 followers! Yeayah!!!! I gotta go eat lunch…… Okay I’m back!
The Lord has been working in me in so many ways recently. God is so good!!! I was praying about the coronavirus the other day and I started to pray this as God was speaking through me:
The Devil tried to come and ruin your plan, God. He knew that your were stirring up the church. He knew that you were using the church to save people and make them new as your adopted child. So, Satan tried to break up the church with his master plan, COVID-19. And for a little while, it worked. But when YOU changed our PERSPECTIVE, you used his plan against him. Now, I believe that the church is not weakened, but stronger than ever before. God, just by changing our perspective, I believe more lives will be saved during COVID-19, than ever before. Instead of having fear, like The Devil intended, we as a church, have faith. Faith, that you can work miracles. Faith, that we have authority in The Kingdom. Faith, that when we speak, miracles happen. God, you changed our PERSPECTIVE, so that we may have greater faith in THIS season than ever before. RIGHT NOW, the church, your church, all of your children UNITED, are not weaker, but stronger than ever before. When we look back at this season, we will NOT think about the sadness of COVID-19, rather we will think about it being the time of when our faith was increased by so much, from you changing our perspective. THIS IS YOUR REVELATION. Amen.
I ended up sharing that with my youth group (online). Revelation has been a really important word for our youth group, so that’s why I put that last part in bold.
Also, I got some social media earlier today. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I’m mostly going to be using them for business purposes (I’m helping my parents with their business), but I can use it for personal reasons too, and I’ll give y’all links to them, once I get them more straightened out. Also btw, I’ve never had social media before so I don’t really know how to use them LOL. So, if you guys have any tips then I’ll take it 😉 . Hopefully that will also get me a little more traffic on here.
What else do I need to tell you guys? I don’t know. I guess I’ll just be writing whatever comes to mind (classic Ezra)………………………………………………………………………………
Oh, if you have nominated me for an award, then let me know in the comments, so that I can get to the award as soon as possible. I know Esther nominated me, but I don’t if anyone else did.
I have been doing learning a lot more about web designing, because I’m going to help my parents build a website for their business. I was even diving into some really complicated HTML (boring). I have been using a really cool tool called Figma, that helps you make websites very easily. So that’s all been fun………..
Ooh also the band was doing pretty good until the virus. I don’t really know what’s going to happen now. We took some pictures for the album cover, and for the posters that we’ll be giving out at the concert. We did that before the virus. We’ll have to see if the concert is going to happen or not, I’m thinking it still is though. I’m almost done making the shirts (the transfer paper comes in on Saturday). We’re pretty behind on practice though, so hopefully we’ll still be ready for the CD. in the summer. Pretty much, nobody knows whats going to happen for the band XD…
I feel like there was something else that I wanted to say but I can’t remember. Well………………………………………………………. Talk to me please! Cheerio! -Ezra
“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” - Isaiah 55:6-7
