I am hearing...God Is in the Manger by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the free audiobook of the month (and Advent book) at ChristianAudio.com
I am wondering...what one word God would have me settle on for 2013
I am preparing...the next Bible memory challenge for January 2013 with these marvelous friends through Do Not Depart
I am thankful...Jenna is coming home Friday for a long Christmas break from Auburn
In the learning room...looking less and less like one as I continue to take away homeschooling books and fill in with my personal favorites instead
I am discovering...my girls and I have a few favorite schoolbooks we still want to keep for sentimental reasons
I am studying...scriptures that would make good gifts to post in this series at Do Not Depart
I am resolving...to be nice in a return letter to a very elderly relative who can be, well,...I better not say (it wouldn’t be nice, right?)
I am writing...four personal stories to share for next week’s Live Second blog tour
I am going...to Books-a-Million tonight to meet with my Bible study friends
I am praying...for wise decisions to be made by a friend and for a friend
I am looking forward to...receiving this package of ornaments I ordered on Monday:
I am sending...(or will be soon) Christmas cards I found with one of my very favorite verses!
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
I am creating...my annual list of favorite books I read this year
I am hoping...to finish the last four books on my Fall Reading List before fall is over
I am pondering these words...
In the end, legalism is superstition....We are drawn to superstitious and legalistic behaviors because they provide a sense of control in an otherwise chaotic world. But God’s favor is not earned by what we do any more than good luck is found in a rabbit’s foot.
- JAMES BRYAN SMITH, The Good and Beautiful God
A picture to share...Jeff and I goofing around with Morgan in the strangely-popular elbows-out pose (do we look thinner that way?)
