My mom has come and gone. Her visits are always too short, but we pack them full. Shopping, Lauren's volleyball game, a fall party on the mountain, and apple picking. I think she went home to rest!!
This not a picture of anyone I know, just random guests at Beak and Skiff Apple Orchard. Look how blue that sky is! Yes, this is New York!!
Kelsey came for a couple of days to spend time with us and her grandma. She took something of mine, so I made a quick trip to Albany over the weekend. But that's another post. Gotta love daughters!!!
I recently became a blogger for B & H Publishing, receiving Jesus~~Little Words Matter. This hard bound book full of pictures children will love and relate to, telling the story of Jesus' birth and resurrection with one word for each picture. The colors are bright and inviting. I have two copies I would like to give away. Just leave comment and you will be entered to win. I was given this book free of charge from B&H Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thoughts are my own.
Most mornings after I have taken Lauren to school and walked at the park, I sit down with hot steaming coffee, my Bible and prayer journal. The minute I sit down, a thousand things...well maybe not a thousand..vie for my attention. There are emails to return, errands to run, and my thoughts can go in so many directions. Because I am easily distracted these days; does that have anything to do with getting older?
As I begin my reading, meditating and studying, I have started the practice of keeping a piece of scratch paper nearby to quickly jot down notes, keeping myself in the chair. The computer work will wait, the urgency of what's next will wait too. Since I want to love God more everyday, I need to know Him. And the only way to know Him is to ready His living Word. (Luke 10:27)
This is an example of one of my days. As you can see, I'm a doodler. Is that a word? I also write down a Bible verse I want to dwell on throughout the day, and prayer requests I want to remember more than once. Happy Tuesday!!
