Scripture Meditation
Isaiah 40:31 -“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint.”

Happy Thursday!

Good Morning! I am extremely sorry I have not posted in a few days….we have been really busy!

On Tuesday, we had a birthday party for Joshua and his friends!

Here are some party moments I would like to share:

All together, it was really a lot of fun! We played arcade games, pool, and air hockey, we ate pizza and cake, and had a great time! We will definetely be doing this again!!

Today I Am Thankful For

The beautiful day outside, and the chance of snow flurries this afternoon!

Prayer Requests

Please pray for my mom, who has not been feeling well.

Please pray for our family, because we have a very full day!

Scripture Meditation

Psalm Chapter 3, Verses 1-10

“Further Benefits of Wisdom -My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”

Happy Monday : )

Happy Monday to all you bloggers and readers out there!
As some of you may know, we celebrated Joshua’s 13th birthday on Friday of last week.

That is why I am a *little* late in getting back to everyday posting!

We have the nice surprise of no water this afternoon! We have a bunch of construction going on around us all the time! They think nothing of shutting off water or electricity without you knowing. Not a nice thing with lots of laundry and dishes plans for the day. Not to mention the painting and puttying as well! *sigh*. Oh well! We must learn to be flexible and use lots of purell huh???

Today’s Task:
These have totally changed due to no water…….we will be sewing and straightening today instead! We do already have our school done!

What I Am Learning:
It is important to always have things put away for times you don’t expect….. such as
water being shut off.

Prayer Requests:
Please pray for my Mom and new baby “Hercules” that is on the way!
If you have a prayer request(s), please leave a comment so that I can be praying for you!

Scripture Meditation:
Proverbs 31:21
” 21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. “

I will post again tomorrow!

WFMW – Love Sweet Love Edition

Today is WFMW hosted by Mrs. Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer. The theme today is Love Sweet Love. My WFMW tip is frugal valentines!

What You Will Need:
Unlined Notecards
Red Inkpad
Red Pen
A Willing Thumb
Optional: Assorted Valentines Stickers

On one side of the notecard, make thumbprints , and then place other thumbprints on top of the first ones to make little hearts. On the other side, write a valentine message, then fold the card in half longways, and secure with a valentines sticker. The heart thumbprints should be on the outside.You can add candy or little squiggly lines if wanted.

For more great WFMW tips, visit Mrs. Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer

Today has been particularly busy for us so far! We have finished all of our school, worked on dishes and laundry, briefly straightened, laid dinner out, and too many other things to list.

Scripture Meditation

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” 1st Timothy 1:12-14
