December 14, 2009
Outside my window…
The sun is higher than it should be when I get up Ü.
I am thinking…
A nice big cup of tea sounds yummy...
but we're out of half and half :-(
Maybe some yummy black coffee Ü
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...
My dark blue knit skirt and blue striped turtleneck
(just staying home today and wanna be comfy)
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 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…
A day spent with my best friend... like today may be Ü
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.
A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
Budgeting... and sticking to it!!! Not splurging here and there!
A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
That I should feed myself spiritually more than physically.
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."
Proverbs 31:10-13 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 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…
Keeping up the house; Park Day on Friday;
going to Beth's violin recital on Friday (she's growing up to fast!);
getting some more Christmas gifts;
working on instrument arrangements;
responding to some letters, 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 toad that my best friend's little sister caught at Park Day last Friday:
He seemed to like just "chillin'" with us at the table Ü
Have a great week!
