For My Dad

"The righteous man walks in his integrity; and his children are blessed after him." ~ Proverbs 20:7

"As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him."
Psalm 103:13

Love you so much dad!!!


Cool Off During the Summer with a Nice Fresh Homemade Smoothie!

I LOVE smoothies! They're a great healthy way to cool off during the summer, especially on those days when the heat just becomes unbearable.
You should really try making a smoothie yourself! All you need is a blender and some fruit.

I used kiwi...

...some oranges...

...some limes...

{A Photo} Challenge

...mangoes, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, and kale for my smoothie. You can pick and choose what fruit you want, maybe even add a bit of all the fruits you can find in your fridge!

Blend it all up {if you feel it's too sweet you can always add about a cup or so of milk}, and...

Don't these pictures just make your mouth water?! Then what are you waiting for, get yourself some fruit and start blending!


Just an Update...

Hello dear patient readers!

Sorry for not posting in so long! I've been working on a new design for this blog, and that is mainly why I haven't really been updating it.
As you can see I've changed my blog name (yet again!), so it's no longer Preparing for Battle but The Chronicles of His Swordmaiden. What do you think of the new name?
I know everything looks pretty disorganized at the moment, but I hope to have everything in proper order soon.
In the mean time, you can check out my photography blog:

In Christ,
