Young Maiden's Daybook - November 9

November 9, 2009

Outside my window…

Bright and cloudy

I am thinking…
Of the things that need to get done today

I am thankful…
For such a good Mom :-)

I am wearing...
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 scarf that I'm going to post about, as well
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
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!
