Hi friends, I accidentally stumbled onto an awesome new blog called WWW.Momstoolbox.com. This site is so encouraging and has some great ideas! I have began using this ladies Bible Study method called: SOAP
This is a verse by verse method. Check out her blog if you are interested! Also, I can joined a group via her blog for the challenge of reading the Bible in 90 days! I think it would be fun if a whole group of ladies were to do this together! Think about how effective we could be for our families if we were to read the whole Bible...at least an hour a day! Wow! I know this is going to change my heart and deepen my relationship with Jesus! That's what I so long after! I deep, all knowing relationship with my Creator! So that's where I am with my Spiritual stuffs! Check it out!
We are getting ready to go to Las Vegas for a vacation. My sister in law, brother in law and my nieces live there! We are going to make it a long trip and stop off in New Mexico and do a little site seeing. My youngest desperately wants to go to the spot where you can stand in 4 states at once so we deinitely going to do that!
Also, every year when it is time to begin preparing for our new school year I get a case of the jitters. I can't explain but I find myself thinking...I can't do this...I don't know what to do. I'm sure this is an attack by my blasted enemy! In the end God and my precious hubby give me the encouragement that I need to get everything organized and then I get excited! Well yesterday, Danae and I spent some of the day at the Homeschool store and I did get her a few of her subjects..went home and began to plan! Now I'm excited! There was one sad thing about yesterday...for those of you that are homeschool moms maybe you get me here. I need other moms. I need their support, their encouragement , the ideas! I had a mom snub me at the Homeschool store and it kinda hurt my feelings. Anyone who knows me know that Im super sentsitive and that I get hurt easily. I was trying not to have a melt down in the store when I, again, realized that one of babies will no longer be under my homeschool teaching and that I was shopping for only one curriculm and it would have been nice to have struck up a conversation versus being snubbed. But you know what... she probably had her own thing going. Also, I noticed that most of the moms in there looked frazzled and really not enjoying themselves. I don't want to look like that. There are days that I'm frazzled and out of sorts but I want to look friendly and approachable and full of Jesus. "Let your light so shine before men that they will see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven." Matthew 5:16
Moms, ladies... smile...look approachable. You never know who's caring the weight of the and need you to tell them who can really carry their troubles for them. Or they may already know Jesus and just need a listening ear!
Well there's my preaching for the day! Lol! Be blessed ladies!
