Young Maiden's Daybook - December 28



Today…
December 28, 2009


Outside my window…

The sun is shining very brightly in a slightly cloudy sky.


I am thinking…
Of the Lord's wonderful patience and grace.
I read this morning:
"And therefore will the LORD wait,
that he may be gracious unto you,
and therefore will he be exalted,
that he may have mercy upon you:
for the LORD is a God of judgment:
blessed are all they that wait for him."
Isaiah 30:18


I am thankful…
For such a wonderful year I had,
growing in the Lord, learning new lessons,
and all of the great times I had.


I am wearing...
Blue knit skirt and red floral 3/4 sleeve shirt.


I am reading…
2 Chronicles, Proverbs, Ezekiel, Mark;
"Fascinating Truths" by James Knox
"The Lost Cause Series" by James Knox
"Do Hard Things" by Alex and Brett Harris
"Choosing Gratitude" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss with Mama ;o)
"Passionate Housewives Desperate For God"
by Jennie Chancey & Stacy McDonald



I am creating…

A full band arrangement for the song I just finished writing,
more steel guitar arrangements for our cd coming up,
a wool shawl (I should finish this week!),
and a list of things to make for
my etsy shop.


One of my favorite things…
A nice, hot, bubbly bath! How refreshing and relaxing!


For education this week…

"homecollege" a.k.a Daughter at Home University =)
I'm looking at different mission boards and
planning to study for their requirements.
I'm going to start studying nursing/medical skills,
as I'm really starting to get ready for the mission field.
Really studying more about doctrine.


A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
Budgeting... having self-control!!! (I splurged this week :-0 )
Remembering "If I live like no one else now,
than later I can live like no one else".


A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
To be content with where the Lord has put me,
even if I my convictions differ from those around me.
And to really have grace with those who do differ,
and not to be judgmental.


A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Staying in prayer and more Bible studying.


Scripture I am memorizing…
"Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax,
and worketh willingly with her hands...
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household,
and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms."
Proverbs 31:10-17 with my online friend.
In fact, since we're memorizing most of Proverbs 31 together,
I'm planning on writing it out on my wall like I did when I
was memorizing 1 Corinthians 13 about Charity. Ü



I'm praying for…
The Lord's guidance through my life.
That He would show me His Truths from His Word,
and help me to be forgiving and have grace toward others.
The Lord to bless and to grow our church.
Also praying that He sends more missionaries to
the much needed country of Greece and the rest of the world.


For the rest of the week…
Sadly putting away the Christmas decorations;
getting ready for the New Year; making some resolutions;
getting a new dishwasher put in today;
recording and posting the song I finished writing;
composing more steel guitar arrangements;
responding to some letters, comments and email
s;
spend extra time with my wonderful Savior;
and whatever else the Lord sees fit to send my way.

A picture I'm sharing...
Stephani and I boxing eachother on the wii.
(Our family Christmas gift!)


The wii sure gives you a workout!!

Have a great week!

Young Maiden's Daybook - December 21



Today…
December 21, 2009


Outside my window…

The sun is shining bright on the 1st day of winter!


I am thinking…
Of how much I need to get done before Friday!
So much to do, so little time Ü.


I am thankful…
For the Lord's longsuffering with us.
And that He takes the time to speak to us
and gently draws us close to Him.


I am wearing...
Pink "60's style" flower dress.


I am reading…

I am creating…

I'm looking at different mission boards and
planning to study for their requirements.

A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
Budgeting... having self-control!!!
Remembering "If I live like no one else now,
than later I can live like no one else".


A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
That I should feed myself spiritually more than physically.
In fact, I'm thinking of committing myself to being sure
to read God's Word every time I eat food... or atleast as often as.


A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Staying in prayer and more Bible studying.


Scripture I am memorizing…
"Who can find a virtuous woman?

Delicious Eggnog

I'm always excited come the holidays,
since one of my favorite drinks is "in season" Ü.
This year I thought I'd try homemade eggnog before I bought some,
and now I don't think I'll ever need to buy any again!
This recipe I got from "Better Homes & Gardens"
is even better than store bought!!

I thought I'd share the recipe:

EGGNOG
6 Beaten eggs
2 1/4 Cups Milk
1/3 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Whipping Cream
2 TBSP Sugar
Ground Nutmeg

In a large heavy saucepan mix eggs, milk, & 1/3 cup sugar.
Cook and stir over medium heat till mixture coats a metal spoon.
Remove from heat.
Cool quickly by placing pan in a sink or bowl
of ice water and stirring 1-2 minutes.
Stir in vanilla. Chill 4-24 hours.
(I ADDED SOME CHOCOLATE SYRUP BEFORE CHILLING)


Right before serving, in a bowl whip cream and 2 TBSP sugar until soft peaks form.


Fold cream mixture into eggnog. Sprinkle each serving with nutmeg.


ENJOY!!!

Selling My Christmas CD!

Well, I have just listed my Piano Christmas CD on my Etsy shop.
I thought I'd make an announcement and lead anyone to it that might be interested in it.
It's nothing real fancy, just some simple arrangements that I wrote,
of well-known favorite Christmas songs. Ü Ü Ü Ü

Young Maiden's Daybook - December 7



Today…
December 7, 2009


Outside my window…

The sun is shining so brightly high in the sky.


I am thinking…
Of the great song "In The Presence of Jehovah".

In and out of situations, a tug-of-war at me;
All day long I struggle for answers that I need.
But then I come into Thy presence
And all my questions become clear;
And for a sacred moment no doubts can interfere
.

In the presence of Jehovah, God Almighty, Prince of Peace.

Troubles vanish, hearts are melted; In the presence of the King.

Through His love the Lord provided a place for us to rest;
A place to find the answer in hours of distress.
Now, there is never any reason for you to give up in despair,
Just say a prayer and breathe His name;
He will come and meet you there.


I am thankful…
That all of the lovely Christmas decorations are up
and it's the most wonderful time of the year!!!


I am wearing...
Jean skirt and Zaxby's "Nuclear" t-shirt.
(just staying home today and wanna be comfy)


I am reading…

I am creating…

A lesson to teach for our Keepers of the Faith group Friday,
a wool shawl (when I get more yarn),
homemade Christmas gifts for my immediate family,
and a list of things to make for
my etsy shop.


One of my favorite things…
Having spiritual conversations with my mom.
I love having someone to talk to
as a sister in Christ, as well as a Mother;
sharing the things the Lord is teaching us
and encouraging one another.



For education this week…

"homecollege" a.k.a Daughter at Home University =)
I'm looking at different mission boards and
planning to study for their requirements.
I'm going to start studying nursing/medical skills,
as I'm praying about preparing for medical mission work.


A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
Budgeting... ah!! It's more fun doing it with 'pretend' money
in your high school Economics book than with your own!!


A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
That not everyone has the same convictions I do,
and I need to have an active grace with those who differ.


A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Honoring parents (not just obeying)...
boy, is that more difficult the older you get!


Scripture I am memorizing…
"Let no man despise thy youth;
but be thou an example of the believers,
in word, in conversation, in charity,
in spirit, in faith, in purity."
2 Timothy 4:12 with my online friend




I'm praying for…
The Lord's guidance through my life.
That He would show me His truths from His Word,
and help me to be forgiving and have grace toward others.
The Lord to bless and to grow our church.

Also for my grieving family as we just lost
my great aunt this morning to liver/pancreas cancer.


For the rest of the week…
Going to W*l-M*rt for fabric & yarn (or Micheal's);
keeping up the house; a trip to the chiropractor (hopefully);

planing a lesson for the Keepers of the Faith group;
working on instrument arrangements;

A Finished Christmas Gift...

I just recently finished my cross-stitching
project I was making for my friend for Christmas.
I thought I'd share a photo...




I got the quote from something I saw in a catalog,

and combined different patterns from some cross-stitch books we have.
It says:
"I don't think it just by chance, but by God's grand design;
that He has guided both our steps... to let your path cross mine."

I thought it a very fitting quote for our friendship,

as we constantly talk about how the Lord must have really planned
out our friendship, seeing we've been together 8 years
and our dads (being in the military) always get stationed at the same places!


Speaking of us, (as a side note)...

On Monday, we went around base inviting people to
our church's upcoming Pig Pickin' service.

Mom got a picture of us at one of the houses...



We had a lovely time together, walking and knocking on doors (3 hours),
and even stopped at the store for a nice cool treat Ü.
It's so great being able to do the Lord's work together.

"Two are better than one; because they
have a good reward for their labour.
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow:
but woe to him that is alone when he falleth;
for he hath not another to help him up."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

boy, is that more difficult the older you get!


Scripture I am memorizing…
"So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom,
and apply thine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge,
and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God."
Proverbs 2:2-5 with my online friend

Have A Blessed Thanksgiving...



"Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us,
and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations."
Psalms 100

Today…
November 23, 2009


Outside my window…

The sun is... rising!!!
(yeah! I actually got up early this morning!)


I am thinking…
Of the song "It Wouldn't Be Enough".
(which song I'll be (hopefully!) composing a steel guitar
arrangement of this week for my my and Stephani's CD!)

"If I had all the riches this world has to give
and the comfort that it brings, never needing anything;
I could search the whole world over far and wide
tryin' to buy this precious love that was sent from heavn' above.
But it wouldn't be enough, no it wouldn't be enough
to buy one splinter of the tree that Jesus died on.
And I couldn't pay the price for a single drop of blood
that was shed for my salvation...."


I am thankful…
For another day on this earth,
and for all the people I share my days with.


I am wearing...
Sleepytime attire for now!

Ü Thrift Store and Etsy Gifts Ü

My sweetie Mom has been spoiling me *Ü*.
As I came home from soul-winning Saturday,
Mom surprised me with a package!!
She had bought me a nice suit dress!! (picture below)
(I looove ladies suit dresses and have been wanting to get one!)
Then we went thrift storing yesterday and I had picked out
2 shirts and a skirt I liked...
and she purchased them for me!!
She also bought me a pair of dress shoes that
I've been wanting to get some day!

Here are some pics of the newly bought clothes...

The ladies suit and matching shirt she picked.
I'm, also, wearing the dress shoes she bought =)



A white blouse and skirt I picked from thrift store.


Thanks for all the stuff!
What a sweetie you are, Mom!!

as more things to list at my etsy shop.


One of my favorite things…
Drinking a cup of tea with Mom in the morning


For education this week…

I need to call around for some field trips for our HS group;
"homecollege" a.k.a Daughter at Home University =)
preparing to be a Keeper at Home, for the mission field,
and studying in-depth Ecclesiology.
Also getting fluent in Modern Greek.


A keeper at home skill I am using...
Being diligent and doing what needs to get done
even when I don't feel like it.



A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
Renewing my mind and keeping it pure.
What a battleground! I really need to be taking every
thought captive to the obedience of Christ.


A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Really "studying to shew myself approved unto God".
Just as one must study to be a scientist or doctor,
we must study to be a mature Christian.
We can't just do nothing and expect that
'time' will make us who we should be!


S cripture I am memorizing…
I'm going to review some from the past 2-3 years,
and hopefully find some more to add.


I'm praying for…
The Lord's guidance through my life.
Also praying that He sends more missionaries to
the much needed country of Greece.


For the rest of the week…
Getting out of the house to get more yarn and CDs;
keeping up the house; a trip to the chiropractor;
working on instrument arrangements;
finishing recording a CD for my friend;
busy crocheting and hopefully listing
some more things on my etsy site;
responding to some comments and email
s;
spend extra time with my wonderful Savior;
and whatever else the Lord sees fit to send my way.


A picture I’d like to share...

A flower at my friend's house that bloomed last year...


"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth;
but the word of our God shall stand forever."
Isaiah 40:8

Have a great week!

Young Maiden's Daybook - November 2



Today…
November 2, 2009


Outside my window…
Cloudy and some rain likely expected.


I am thinking…
It's November (one of my favorite months!!!)
Only 3 weeks until Thanksgiving
and 7 weeks until Christmas!


I am thankful…
That the LORD is always so faithful to forgive,
when all I seem to be faithful at is sinning against Him.


I am wearing...
Eh,eventually some houseclothes.
(I'm still in sleepytime attire for now)


I am reading…
2 Chronicles, Proverbs, Ezekiel, Matthew;
"Do Hard Things" by Alex and Brett Harris
"Choosing Gratitude" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss with Mama ;o)
"Passionate Housewives Desperate For God"
by Jennie Chancey & Stacy McDonald



I am creating…
A "Rose Garden Afghan" and some dish things
to list at my etsy shop.


One of my favorite things…
Granola! Which I'm about to go eat some that I made :)
