Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Also an insert from Tristin's school project (public school) :)


"Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that You may silence the enemy and the avenger."
~ Psalm 8:2 ~

As we walked into our home after our daughter's day of school; we went about our normal after school routine. She emptied her school bag with homework that had been graded and some other assignments that she had written and laminated.

One of the interesting things I came across was a laminated eight and a half by eleven inch piece of paper. As I started to read the words on the page, I could have melted in the sweet surrender of her innocence towards Almighty God and the dreams within her heart.

The random 'thoughts and jots' of a nine year old...

"I Am"
By: Tristin Criswell
"I am smart and a peace lover.
I wonder if I will ever go to Paris.
I hear a French man say (In a french accent),
"Three dollar for a croissant."
I see the Eiffel Tower.
I want to be a mystery person when I grow up.
I am a lover of history.
I pretend that I live in New York in an apartment.
I feel fun because I love the 80's.
I touch a pretend house.
I worry if something will happen in the future.
I cry when a family member dies.
I am sleepy in the morning.
I understand history.
I say I believe that My God is the answer.
I dream what it will look like when I see God.
I try to be better in math.
I am the lover of my God and hope that one day
every one will believe in God and
I hope that you will know God too.
Amen. Thank you."
