I've never really been into scrapbooking, but I am working on a project & have been wondering if digital scrapbooking might be useful. I don't want to put a lot of money into it either. If you have any website suggestions, advice, ect ... I'd love to hear it!
Thanks a bunch:)
Jackson 5 :) Our house is full of fun these days. Maya keeps us very entertained & busy. She is in the 'pre-walking' stage. Just taking a few steps here & there. Not sure I'm ready for her to be walking soon, but ready or not it will happen!
I'm really excited to be starting a short class in the coming weeks. A few other moms & I will be going through the book titled, 'At Mother's Knee'. It is a workbook of sorts with info & ideas about doing regular Bible lessons with your children. Should be very encouraging.
We studied more from Isaiah yesterday & I wanted to share a few of my favorite verses.
'Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.' Isaiah 40:28-31
I am really enjoying our Bible classes surveying the OT. We are spending some time on the books of the prophets. WOW! There is a lot that I miss while reading or don't really understand, but WOW! Tomorrow we will be discussing Micah & I wanted to share some verses that really struck me ...
'Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever because he delights in steadfast love. He willagain have compassion on us he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sinis into the depths of the sea. You will show faithfulness to Jacob and steafast love to Abraham, as you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old." Micah 7:18-20
What an awesome God we serve!
sometimes I don't do it enough & other times I fear I do WAY too much of it. Anyone else ever feel that way?
Our trip to Missiouri was wonderful & exhausting all rolled into one. It was fantastic to spend some time with the Boyers. I enjoyed seeing our college friends as parents and it did me much good to stay up late talking with such a sweet friend
. Sorry for keeping you up late, Becky =]
The St. Louis portion of our trip was great. The gospel meeting was very encouraging & we enjoyed seeing so many brethren who are very dear to us. My regret is that I did not get to visit one-on-one with more people, but alas I'm pretty air-headed in crowds & the time did not allow for proper visits =[
I'm busy planning for our Cinco de Mayo Fiesta on Tuesday night. This year I'm going to try some new, authentic Mexcian dishes. Should be tasty & fun!
So, I was a completely terrible guesser this year for March Madness. The very first day of the first round was my shining moment. Things most certainly went down hill from there... Oh well, it is still a fun family tradition!
Things with us have been wonderful. Maya is a crawling machine these days & keeps us thoroughly entertained. We are getting VERY excited for our upcoming trip to Kansas City
& St. Louis! Lots to do before then, but it always gets done.
Our Sunday morning & Wednesday evening bible classes are covering the Divided Kingdom right now. I have truly enjoyed reading through these Old Testament books again. I'm overwhelmed by the courage & faithfulness of Elijah and Elisha. I keep asking myself how I would measure up ... kind of depressing to know how far away I am ... at the same time motivating for me. What are you studying?
Of course, I'll leave you with a few pictures ... just because
