Young Maidens Daybook - March 23

March 23, 2009

Outside my window…
The sun is trying to peek through a dark sky!
It's earlier than when I usually rise.
(not really on purpose... I woke up from pain)

I am thinking…
God is SO good to me!
His love really amazes me,
and I'm so undeserving of it!

I am thankful for…
resources to help pain :)
And being able to take
everything to God in prayer!

I am wearing…
Uh... pajamas still.
And a blue jacket over them.

I am reading…
2 Kings, Psalms, Proverbs, 1 Timothy (KJB);
"Tortured for Christ" by Richard Wurmbrand
"The Total Money Makeover" by Dave Ramsey
and about to start reading...
"The Shadow of the Almighty" by Elisabeth Elliot

I am creating…
Crocheted afghans.
Not much else, really.

One of my favorite things…
My instruments!
I love writing hymn arrangements
for piano, as well as quartets for
violin, guitar, & banjo... so fun!

For education this week…
Apologia Advanced Biology,
Rosetta Stone Modern Greek,
I need to write my Literary Analysis essay,
and really sit down and think about my graduation speech!

A keeper at home skill I am using/learning…
Being good with children...

A spiritual lesson I’m learning…
Longsuffering and being content,
even through all my physical problems.
I know that
"They that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength ..."

A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Charity... suffereth long, is kind, envieth not, vaunteth not itself,
isn't puffed up, behaveth not unseemly, seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, rejoiceth not in iniquity,
rejoiceth in truth, beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things, and never faileth!

Scripture I am memorizing…
Joel 2:13
"And rend your heart, and not your garments,
and turn unto the LORD your God:
for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger,
and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil."

I am praying for…
Charity in myself, for our church not to become lukewarm,
for the Holy Spirit to give Pastor the power and passion to preach.

For the rest of the week…
I teach piano tomorrow, schoolwork, respond to comments and emails,
crocheting, Friday pizza night, preparing for our upcoming
Crucifixion Sunday sacred music night.

A picture I’d like to share...
This is one of my 8/9 panel afghans so far...

Up close...

I only have 3 panels sewn together so far.
I'm almost done making the 4th one. ;o)

Have a great week!

What a beautiful afghan!

You will have to post something about the mission field in Greece. I don't think that I have heard much about what God is doing there! I hope that you have a wonderful day!
