December 28, 2009
Outside my window…
The sun is shining very brightly in a slightly cloudy sky.
I am thinking…
Of the Lord's wonderful patience and grace.
I read this morning:
"And therefore will the LORD wait,
that he may be gracious unto you,
and therefore will he be exalted,
that he may have mercy upon you:
for the LORD is a God of judgment:
blessed are all they that wait for him."
I am thankful…
For such a wonderful year I had,
growing in the Lord, learning new lessons,
and all of the great times I had.
I am wearing...
Blue knit skirt and red floral 3/4 sleeve shirt.
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 full band arrangement for the song I just finished writing,
more steel guitar arrangements for our cd coming up,
a wool shawl (I should finish this week!),
and a list of things to make for my etsy shop.
One of my favorite things…
A nice, hot, bubbly bath! How refreshing and relaxing!
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.
Really studying more about doctrine.
A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
Budgeting... having self-control!!! (I splurged this week :-0 )
Remembering "If I live like no one else now,
than later I can live like no one else".
A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
To be content with where the Lord has put me,
even if I my convictions differ from those around me.
And to really have grace with those who do differ,
and not to be judgmental.
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...
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household,
and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms."
Proverbs 31:10-17 with my online friend.
In fact, since we're memorizing most of Proverbs 31 together,
I'm planning on writing it out on my wall like I did when I
was memorizing 1 Corinthians 13 about Charity. Ü
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…
Sadly putting away the Christmas decorations;
getting ready for the New Year; making some resolutions;
getting a new dishwasher put in today;
recording and posting the song I finished writing;
composing more steel guitar 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'm sharing...
Stephani and I boxing eachother on the wii.

The wii sure gives you a workout!!
