100 Subscribers?

(Get ready for a long post)

Guys!  I have a hundred followers!  Like, I can’t believe this.  I actually technically have 106, but you get the point.  Anyway, I’m not going to share crazy stats, ’cause that’s just strange.  I’m also not going to have a giveaway.  (Awe, I know!)  But…

I’m having a competition!

Yes!  It’s a writing competition.  You can join, and have a chance of winning a prize!  I actually haven’t decided on the prize, but the story and a short bio of the winner will be featured on my blog. But don’t worry, I’ll have the prize before it’s time for the completion to end.  I also think you’ll like it.  (I hope!)

Here are the rules for the stories!

  1. No witch craft, black magic, or inappropriate relationships are allowed. (Need a definition of inappropriate?  Look in Ephesians 5.)
  2. No curse words, or taking of God’s name in vain.  (The Lord will not hold you guiltless if you take His Name in vain.)
  3. And lastly, they must be respectful to each other, and God.

All right!  So, you’ve gotten the idea for the story rules?  Well, now you’re going to have to use a prompt.  (Am I making it too hard?).  You have to use a little bit of the following prompt in your story.

We’ve all been wronged in this life; we’ve all been hurt.  But whether it’s physical, mental, or emotional pain, we don’t have to dwell on it.  God sent His Son so that we can conquer pain.  Live a life that models that.

“Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.  For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.” (2 Corinthians 12:5-6)

In order for your submission to be qualified you must:

  1. Use part of the prompt above.
  2. Include your name, age, and bio in a separate document as the story.
  3. Send the story in a Word document, New Romans Time font, size 12.

That’s all!  But wait, how do you send it to me?  Well, go up there to the contact form.  Contact me that you would like to join the contest.  I’ll email you back and voila!  It works that way.

You must send in your story by April 30.

Sorry, if it’s later than that, it doesn’t count.  I will release the winners on May fifth.  If you are a winner, you’ll find an email in all caps saying so. 😉

So, on your marks, get set and join the competition!

Now, for a tag, since I have time. 😉  Today it is the Sunshine Blogger Award!  Yay!  Maybe this means I’m a ray of sunshine?  Am I pushing it too far?  All right, I’ll just get into this tag.


Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog.

Answer the questions the blogger who nominated you provided (11 maximum).

Nominate new bloggers and make up to 11 questions for them to answer.

List the rules and have the Sunshine Blogger logo present in your post.

Ahem, thank you so much, Kaitlyn, for nominating me!  I’m so pleased.  I was surprised when I read that you had, but surprises are always great!  Thanks, Kaitlyn!

The Questions…

If you could meet any fictional character in real life, who would it be?

Oh, oh, oh!!!!! Um, okay, this is a strange combination, but I’d never be able to chose….So… Edmund Pevensie, Capitola Black, Phil Baker, and *all you hear are the clicking of keys as Amie tries to think of another character* Umm…Walter Shirley! (I mean Blythe.)

Why did you decide to start blogging?

Hehehe…For no apparent reason except to do it.  I had no reason, and I just thought, “What if I had a blog?  What would I call it?  Crazy A.  Hmm, that suits.”  Guess what?  The next day a new blog had been born.

What is your favorite type of music and favorite song?

My favorite type of music is country, bluegrass, hymns, and nineteenth century music.  My favorite song?  Well, I’ll take one from each group.  Country?  What Country Means to Me by Lawson Bates.  Bluegrass?  Ah!  Why is this so hard?  Um, any classic, okay?  Hymns?  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms by Anthony Showalter.  At least, that’s my favorite at the present.  It changes every month. 😉  Nineteenth century?  Okay, I get made fun of a lot about this and everyone asks my if I like Goober Peas, but y’all, just listen to these songs!  They’re so full of history.  Stonewall Jackson’s Way or Jin the Cavalry.

(Haha!  I obviously am in love with music!

If you could tell the whole world one thing, what would it be?

Christ, the Son of God who is God, came to earth, suffered, and died.  But Christ didn’t just die.  He rose again and is sitting at the right hand of God the Father Almighty in Heaven as we speak.  He is the only way to Heaven.  Repent from your sins and believe on Him today, and you will be saved from eternal damnation.

What weird food combinations do you like, if any?

Hmm, potato chips and pineapple jam, pickles and sour cream, and coffee and apples.  They’re all good, trust me.

Nominees and Questions…

I nominate…



Hannah. Crafts of all Seasons


Hannah. Mirroring Jesus

All right.  My questions.

As a child, what was the strangest thing you did?

What is the age you look back with fondest memories?

What is something that changed your life?

Do you enjoy writing or reading better?

What are your thoughts on life?  After or before a certain age is it okay to kill someone or yourself?

Am I good at asking profound questions?

What is your least favorite Bible passage?  Why?

And that is it for this tag! On to random life…

Sadly, we are back to one bunny.  Hedgcock and Snowball got along splendidly until the fifth day together.  Hedgcock decided to show ultimate dominance, and Snowball’s answer was,

“Hello, who are you?  Uh uh, you aren’t boss here.”

Regardless, Hedgcock went back to his former home after a week of staying with us.  I miss him, since he was much cuter (to me!) than Snowball, but life moves on, right?


Haha!  My brothers!

On Saturday we had a piano recital.  So, everyone that came said my siblings and I were amazing, but I know I messed up at least twice in each song.  My two sisters and I sang I Have Been Blessed by C.T. Townsend while my older brother played.  Haha…That was a disaster, sorta.  My poor younger sister!  She was supposed to sing a verse by herself, but she froze on stage and I didn’t know half of her verse.  Well, all things work together for good, right?

But, it was fun and I enjoyed performing.  I always enjoy performing.


Recently my parents went out on a date, and I was requested to babysit.  I’m not all that fond of babysitting, especially since I was working on a masterpiece in the writing sense. But!  I agreed.

When they came home, they had brought me coffee!  I was so happy.  (Coffee is the only thing that can change my mood fast 😂)  What would life be like without coffee?

Do you enjoy performing?  Are you joining the competition?  Have you ever had a pet disaster?  What would the world be like without coffee?

    Congrats on 106 subscribers! I love to perform! It’s so sad that your other bunny is gone.😒 A couple days ago, we had a big pet disaster. I’ll tell you about it in my letter. I’m not a big fan of coffee, but my parents are, and I think half the world would be asleep without coffee! Sorry I haven’t commented lately, we’ve been very busy!

        You can read about him in Anne of Ingleside, Rainbow Valley, and Rilla of Ingleside. They are the best books out of the Anne series.

    Congratulations on 100 followers! 💞🎉🎊🎆
    I don’t think I’ll enter the contest, I’m so busy with school right now…😑 (Haha, I’m obviously working so hard right now reading your blog 😝)
    I HATE preforming….well, I don’t mind it as much as I used to, but I certainly don’t love it. Good for you, though! So sad about Hedgecock…

        Thanks! Everyone says I looked like a little German girl 😂. It’s my go-to classy style. Do two normal braids and pin them up. I have long bangs, so I slightly curled them and pinned them up and behind the braids.

    Who-hoo!!! 106 followers, Amie!! 😀 Congrats! Awe, that’s too bad Hedgcock and Snowball didn’t get along! Our gerbils we had awhile back almost killed each other–they hated each other’s guts!!! lol
    Um, I have one question about the writing competition–how long should the story be? Or is there no limit? I’m thinking I might enter it–we’ll see! I mean, I’d like to, but I’m just so busy…haha, I need to do it!! 😀
    Well, I do like performing, and usually, I can shut down my nerves, and then everything is okay. Yes, I like performing!!! 😀

    Ha! I’m sorry, but it’s too horrible a thought a “world without coffee”. That would be miserable, let’s just say, this girl likes her coffee! 😀

    Wow! Thanks for nominating me! I’m not sure if I’m going to do it though..😕 life here has been very crazy. Since we moved I have to take a hunting course and a test. We are also are pet sitting and have to take care of some things for my great grandma. Plus there is a lot going on with our church right now and a bunch of Easter stuff going on. Once that is all behind me the snow will be melted enough to began spring fence repairs. Plus spring garden, spring animals and a 2 week long spring visit by my grandma. Also possibly traveling a bit. I’ll be lucky to just get around to posting on my blog weekly. All spare will be filled with school.

    Hello! I came here from Annie Writes! My name is Laura, and I blog over at flowersinmybasket.blogspot.com 😀 My sister sometimes puts Stonewall Jackson’s Way on; it’s neat to find someone else who’s heard of it! I used to have a rabbit, Sable, but he died. I like Leaning on the Everlasting Arms too! Actually, I’m writing a book called that!
