If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Around the House

I got this idea from Sarah at Life in the Parsonage. She got it from someone else and I couldn't resist giving it a try too.

Around the House: October

Reading: Leaving Yesterday by Kathryn Cushman

Enjoying: Geocaching; the beautiful weather; and spending some time with my family when they aren't all busy somewhere else

Learning: About the Fruit of the Spirit

Watching: "Survivor" and "Stargate Universe" and "Extreme Home Makeover"

Anticipating: The holidays; Thanksgiving and Christmas are my 2 favorites. I posted "Mary Did You Know" for Then Sings My Soul Saturday and I can't get Christmas out of my mind now. Also, Wal-mart had 2 or 3 aisles of Christmas stuff out already. Of course, we had to walk through and see everything.

Realizing: God is so good and I am so blessed. So many friends and family and church members are going through hard things. When I see all this around me, I realize I really don't have any problems. Irritations, yes, problems, no.

Pondering: The love of God and why does He love me?

Studying: "Living Beyond Yourself" by Beth Moore. This on the Fruit of the Spirit and boy am I being stepped on all over the place. But I know it's what I need. The Spirit living in me is the only way to get through each day

Wondering: If I'll ever get to retire.

Remembering: Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. (This was Sarah's answer, but I couldn't think of anything better and really what could be more true than this)

Praying: That our family stays healthy and close to the Lord and each other.


  1. Why can't Survivor be on three nights a week like Big Brother?


  2. These are great journal prompts! Thanks Cathy! this is beautiful ~ Praying for families, love and health with you too! ~Maria

  3. Oh, that is my prayer for us too! I have been trying to watch Stargate Universe but keep forgetting that it's on. So I've missed a few and have no idea what's going on. I did see the first though!

  4. Well isn't this just the cutest little post idea! I may have to give it a try...if ya don't mind me borrowing it...tee hee!

  5. I know people gripe about the Christmas merchandise coming out so early, but I LOVE it!

  6. I loved this post. I found out you and I have so much in common. I never miss Extreme Home Make-Over. One of my Favorite songs is Mary Did You Know. Unfortunately my eyes aren't what they used to be and I had trouble seeing the orange print, but I also saw that you enjoy learning about the Fruits of the spirit. I also strive to learn more about them and putting them into practice. The main one I have problems getting through this thick skull and into my heart is "patience."

    Come by and chat.

    PJ (http://www.PJsPrayerLine.blogspot.com) It's probably on there already but I wasn't sure.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
