For a while now learning scripture has been on my heart and so I am going to continue trying to do so. I have done it with Beth Moore-I did miss the last 2 weeks and well I am just not going to beat myself up about it. That is one of my New Year changes I am making. Anywho, on to the challenge. I read this blog She Sparkles and she is doing an A to Z Memory Scripture Verse challenge and so I am joining in. I figure I will learn some new scriptures and will have them hidden in my heart and that will only make me better at knowing God's Word! So on to the first one:
A - As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.~ Joshua 24:15b
I have done this 30 Days the last couple of years along with my friend Conny. I am always amazed at how fast it goes. I have enjoyed participating-I know some of my post may have been on the frivolous or even selfish side but as I sit here and think about all that I have-I really am just thankful. I have a great husband who I love more today even though he drives me crazy. lol I have 3 pretty darn good kids who are starting to not be kids & that is kind of cool and weird all rolled into one. I have a nice comfortable home-plenty to eat. I have some cool friends who like me! I attend a great church! I work for a pretty neat lady! I serve an AWESOME God! My life is really good! Don't get me wrong it has it's fair share of heartbreak but overall I really am just blessed and that makes me thankful.
Today I am thankful that I got to spend a couple of hours with my college girl-Chelsea. I met some more of her friends, where she works, the boy she likes and we got to attend her Bible Study. I will have to give the lesson some serious thought-it was interesting. I had a good time!
Today I am thankful that I got to go to the Advent by Candlelight for Women @ FUMC with Jordan who asked me to go. Last year she & Chelsea went and had a wonderful time and so I was thrilled when she asked me to go(you have to be invited). What a beautiful way to start off the Advent Season. The theme this year was "A Baby Changes Everything"it was just wonderful-the music and the talks-candlelight! WOW! Not only did I get to hang with one of my girls but I got to hang with many of my friends and Jordan also asked Julie to go and well everyone knows how I feel about her-she loves me and my kids! :) Doesn't get any better than that!!! I am truly blessed girl!!
Today I am thankful for having medical insurance-getting to be seen at the medi-clinic(they close at 4 and I got there a little after 3) instead of having to go to the ER and I am most thankful for Lonnie going to get my meds for me.
