Young Maiden's Daybook - June 1

June 1, 2009

Outside my window…
Very sunny and beautiful!

I am thinking…
My uncle and his family will arrive soon today,
and graduation is in only 5 DAYS!

I am thankful for…

The Lord's provision for family being

able to travel 1,000 miles to come :)

I am wearing…
My blue striped dress.

I am reading…
1 Chronicles, Psalms, Proverbs, 1 John;

"Shadow of the Almighty" by Elisabeth Elliot;
"The Total Money Makeover" by Dave Ramsey;

"Bruised Reed" by Thomas Lambie;

"The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom

I am creating…

Various afghans.

(3 and a baby blanket to be exact)

One of my favorite things…
My new graduation present!
(There's a picture at the end)

For education this week…

Whatever I learn on the way :)

A keeper at home skill I am using/learning...

Motherhood skills.

A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
It's not just obeying, but honoring wishes and preferences.

A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Still charity, but I desperately need the Lord's help with meekness.

Scripture I am memorizing…
"Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before,
beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked,
fall from your own stedfastness.
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."

2 Peter 3:17-18

I'm praying for…
The Lord to send out more missionaries.
Particularly the places He's laid on my heart:
Algeria, Benin, Comoros, Czechoslovakia,
Greece, Mauritania, and Somalia.

For the rest of the week…
My uncle being here anytime this afternoon,

my mom's birthday is tomorrow,
preparing for more family on Thursday,
trying to rest (fibromayalgia has been bad lately),
practicing my speech a few more times,
decorating the church on Friday for

A picture I’d like to share...
My parent's graduation gift to me...

They took me to pick it out yesterday.
My favorite feature is face recognition!
You program a face into it, and on the 'smile' setting,
it automatically takes a picture when you smile!

Have a great week!

*P.S. The next 2 weeks are going to be very busy for me
with family coming to stay with us a while and my graduation this Saturday.
I'll not be able to post very often and may only be able to do the daybook.

I hope to be back to regular posting and visiting after the busyness.
Thanks for understanding :)
