One way we can get to know each other better is by sharing how we are currently living life.

Reading Chronological Bible reading plan, yes i have been working on it since Feb 2014, i’ll get there eventually

Writing – nothing, i have major writer’s block. So many ideas floating in my head that i can’t seem to write down. I have a ton of craft ideas to share, but again my creativity is lacking right now.

Playingshopkins, oh how i love those little guys. Maybe more than Lennie does.

  1. I just did BSF for the first time last year, and it was the best Bible study I’ve ever experienced. I would highly recommend it, regardless of if you know anyone or not! Which class are you going to? I’ll be in Caledonia!

  2. BSF is exactly the type of in-depth Bible Study I have been craving but, unfortunately, the closest one to me is either Yakima or Wenatchee and our minivan will not make it that far (CVC Joint is getting ready to break). Too bad they did not have one in Ellensburg where I live ;o(.

  3. Reading – “Overcoming Life’s Challenges-Lessons From the Life Of Joseph” by Bill Crowder

    Writing – I have writing down the ton of craft idea plans to share, but my physical pain has been too high the past week to write the blog posts about them or to even do them.

    Playing – Wordz Up!

    Watching – The Sun Set every night with my hubby and our dog Pepper.

    Trying – To get our apartment cleaned up so I can work on redoing my Crafting Desk (which is really a Meeting Hall Table with a Skirt but I found the cutest wrapping paper that I am going to put on top of my Desk and then cover it with four coats of Polycrylic…Yeah .,…pumped about this project!

    Loving – My Hubby and my Garden.

    Hating – the fact that summer is almost over and that my physical pain will be getting worse due to the Cold Intolerance I have in my feet and low back. I need a new pair of hunting grade Long Johns.

    Re-Discovering – I can do anything through Christ which Strengthens me and that impossible actually says I am Possible.

    Enjoying – being able to clean my apartment after spending almost three full years on my back due to my physical pain being out the roof.

    Thinking – I need a Vacation with the hubby. That I wish we could get a reliable van.

    Hoping for – A Godly Marriage Revival and Friends as most of my friends have died from various forms of Cancers.

    Celebrating –The fact I am still alive and breathing on my own. I have multiple Rare diseases that are very painful and have almost killed me.

    Smelling – Peppermint Essential Oil or Almond Oil to lift my Spirits.

    Thanking –Thanking God for the Good Things in my life as well as the very hard lessons I had to learn in letting my hopes of my biological family getting reunited again go. But continuing to pray for them as well as both of my Children my own mother forced me to give up.

    Considering – 1. Starting a Fairy Garden in my garden around the tree next to my apartment.
