Young Maiden's Daybook - September 14

September 14, 2009

Outside my window…
The sunshine is so bright,
the lovely birds are singing,
a noisy schoolbus is picking up kids,
and the weather is actually nice!!

I am thinking…
Of how delicious this oatmeal is!
It's my favorite breakfast.

I am thankful…
For the privilage to own different instruments,
and the ability to play them.
I've no idea sometimes what I'd do without them!

I am wearing...
Sleepytime attire ;-)
(as Mom calls it)

I am reading…
2 Chronicles, Psalms, Proverbs, Ezekiel, Mark, Titus;
"A Heart For God" by Dr.Paul Chapel
"Waiting For Her Issac"

I am creating…
The last 2 panels to an afghan I've been
working on for almost a year now.

One of my favorite things…
Cold weather... really can't wait until winter.

For education this week…
"homecollege" a.k.a Daughter at Home University =)
preparing to be a Keeper at Home, for the mission field,
and studying Bibliography, Theology, & Christology.
Also getting fluent in Modern Greek.

A keeper at home skill I am using/learning...
Not being excessivly sleepy and getting up to my alarm clock.
(which is kind of hard with having CFS!)

A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
Submission to those in authority...
it does get harder (yet even more essential)
when in the stages of young adulthood!

A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Making sure that I'm pleasing the Lord, not appeasing.

Scripture I am memorizing…
"But shun profane and vain babblings:
for they will increase unto more ungodliness."
2 Timothy 2:16

I'm praying for…
The Lord to bless our upcoming Revival.
And for wisdom in making life's descisions.

For the rest of the week…
Keeping up the house; hopefully getting into the doctor,
busy crocheting and preparing for my business,
preparing for Christams gifts,
getting around to posting something else besides a daybook post =),
respond to some comments and emails,
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 photo I took of the moon in Michigan
and added one of my favorite verses to.

"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained:
what is man that thou art mindful of him;
and the son of man that thou visitest him?"
Psalms 8:3-4

Have a great week!

Hi Alexandra,

I really enjoy your Daybook posts. I may do this too sometime soon. :)

When I first began reading your blog months back, I saw something about you having Fibromyalgia/CFS, and took note of that, but forgot until now. My Mom and I have this too, and I can definitely relate -- it can be very hard to get up to my alarm clock, too! If you don't mind me asking, how long have you had it? I've struggled with it for about 5 years or so now, and it gets continually worse. We've been looking into treatments, and have found some interesting information. I would love to share this with you, if you are interested (if you haven't found something yourself already).
If you want more info, feel free to PM me at :)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Alexandra!

Blessings to you and yours!

~Noelle M.
