December 7, 2009
Outside my window…
The sun is shining so brightly high in the sky.
I am thinking…
Of the great song "In The Presence of Jehovah".
In and out of situations, a tug-of-war at me;
All day long I struggle for answers that I need.
But then I come into Thy presence
And all my questions become clear;
And for a sacred moment no doubts can interfere.
In the presence of Jehovah, God Almighty, Prince of Peace.
Troubles vanish, hearts are melted; In the presence of the King.
Through His love the Lord provided a place for us to rest;
A place to find the answer in hours of distress.
Now, there is never any reason for you to give up in despair,
Just say a prayer and breathe His name;
He will come and meet you there.
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...
Jean skirt and Zaxby's "Nuclear" t-shirt.
(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 lesson to teach for our Keepers of the Faith group Friday,
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…
Having spiritual conversations with my mom.
I love having someone to talk to
as a sister in Christ, as well as a Mother;
sharing the things the Lord is teaching us
and encouraging one another.
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 praying about preparing for medical mission work.
A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
Budgeting... ah!! It's more fun doing it with 'pretend' money
in your high school Economics book than with your own!!
A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
That not everyone has the same convictions I do,
and I need to have an active grace with those who differ.
A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Honoring parents (not just obeying)...
boy, is that more difficult the older you get!
Scripture I am memorizing…
"Let no man despise thy youth;
but be thou an example of the believers,
in word, in conversation, in charity,
in spirit, in faith, in purity."
2 Timothy 4:12 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.
Also for my grieving family as we just lost
my great aunt this morning to liver/pancreas cancer.
For the rest of the week…
Going to W*l-M*rt for fabric & yarn (or Micheal's);
keeping up the house; a trip to the chiropractor (hopefully);
sending out Christmas gifts to family;
planing a lesson for the Keepers of the Faith group;
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...
The cake I made for our annual Pig Pickin' at church yesterday:
Have a great week!
