Projects: Well this subject will include a few non-projects, but still good things. First of all, I spent the first part of my week working my seasonal cooking job. I was so blessed; I asked the Lord to please help my day go well, and amazingly (Why should I be surprised, He says He will answer if we ask?) it went great! I had the two smoothest days of this past season, and guess what? This was my last week for the season! 🙂 While I love my job and greatly appreciate it, I’m looking forward to helping and being at home more often. So I’m excited!
This week I also spent a day and a half helping some friends do hay. I was very nervous about this, since I am not very strong, but, praise the Lord!, I was able to lift those bails! It was my first time doing hay, and boy, it was hard, hot work. I did not know I could sweat that much! 😀 But I loved it! It was such a blessing to be a help, to see the work slowly get done, to excerise my body, and to have sweet/fun fellowship with other Christians while working in the field. In short, it was great! 🙂
Something I found interesting is that I learned how to be thankful for just a breeze. When working in the hot sun, a little breeze can make all the difference. I am so thankful that God kindly gave us many breezes; I found in this experience that God knows all my needs and is faithful to meet them!
Reading: This week I have had a blessed time reading my Bible. (Yes, I know, such a simple thing, but oh so wonderful!) Lately, I’ve been reading over Romans 6, that is such an encouraging and lovely chapter! I’ve also been trying to read The King’s Blooming Rose, a Christian girl’s magazine which is oh so helpful! This one is on prayer, and I have found it so timely, so powerful!
Memorization: Yay! I’m so excited! I had purposed last week to memorize 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7. These few verses have been such blessings to me! While I do not have the whole thing memorized, I’m getting there! 🙂
(I had not made memorization a big priority in the last few years, and so, even a few verses is a lovely thing!)
Music: I just got my new fiddling book in the mail (Hurray!!) and spent a little bit of time working on a new song. I hope to spend this coming week on that as well! 🙂
Well, I think that’s it. This week I hope to concentrate on finishing the dress (that I started awhile back), finish my letters (that I started awhile back), and help around the house. I hope you all have a lovely week trust ing and resting in the Lord.
Lord bless your day!
