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

Share 4 Somethings - April 2023


I'm linking up with Jennifer at Overflowing with Thankfulness for Share 4 Somethings.  The prompts are things we loved, read, learned and ate in April.

Loved:  Jennifer Rothschild Bible study on Amos.  We finished it last Tuesday.  It was really good.  Who knew you could get so much out of such a small book in the Bible?  I recommend if you're looking for a good Bible study, that you try this one.

Read:  I read 4 books by Lynette Eason in early April.  I'm kinda in a slump though this last couple of weeks.  I actually have 2 I'm working on slowly.  We'll see if I get them finished before the end of May.  lol  

I've also been reading the 4 Gospels along with Annie F. Downs.  This month we're reading the Gospels in the Message version. 

Learned: I've learned that I should have watched the Chosen series a long time ago.  Actually, I did watch the first season but never watched the others.  So recently I re-watched the first season and am now in season three and I'm so enjoying it.

Ate: Yesterday, we went out to eat with hubby's mom and my sister and her husband.  The food was good, but the best part was just being together and having so much fun talking and laughing.  I love my family. 

Well that's my 4 Somethings for April.  You can link up here if you'd enjoy writing a Share Something post or visiting others who have.  

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a good weekend.

Currently - April 2023


Today it's time for the April Currently Post.  You can link up with Jennifer here, as she is the hostess.  This months topics are Things we are Currently Loving, Hoping, Playing, Needing, and Feeling. 

Currently I am:

Loving: I have found a new series of books by and author I had read once before.  I had forgotten about her.  Her name is Lynette Eason and she writes Christian Suspense books.  She's written over 60 books, so I've got lots of reading to do before I run out.  I'm currently reading a series called Extreme Measures. I've read the first 2 since Friday night and I started book 3 last night.  If you're looking for a new book, I definitely recommend these books.


Hoping:   I'm hoping hubby and I will get to take a couple day trips this spring like we did last year.  Not sure where to yet, but whatever we do together will be fun.

Playing:  Words with Friends and Wordle

Needing:  We're needing to find a mowing service...the man that has done ours for the last several years, can no longer do it.

Feeling:  I'm feeling tired today as I stayed up too late finishing up the book #2 and then the dog woke me up early.  That's what happens when I find a really good book, I stay up half the night to finish it.  lol

That's it for today.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day.

Bits of This and That


Good morning:  It's Monday 4/3/2023 at 10:18 and it's 50 degrees out, rather overcast and starting to rain. 

Hubby and I took a drive to Middletown to drop off our tax information to the people who do our taxes each year.  These people are the best.  After dropping them off, we ran through McDonald's drive-thru and picked up a quick breakfast and are now at church.  I just completed listening to the scriptures for today.  3 chapters in Luke.  Below is what I'm using for my personal reading scripture each day.  If you're interested in knowing more, I've added a link.  If you click on the picture below it should take to where you can join in with Annie Downs for the reading of the 4 Gospels each month.  I've really been enjoying this. 

After I finish this blog post and read a few of yours, I will be working on the lessons for this week's Bible Study with the ladies on Tuesday night.  I'm a little behind but I have the rest of the morning and all afternoon to catch up.  If you're looking for a good study, we're doing Amos by Jennifer Rothschild and it's really good.

We've had a really good, quiet and mostly peaceful weekend.   On Friday, I finished book 4 in the Kennedy Stern Series by Alana Terry.  I went to Libby to get book 5 and had to put it on hold, as someone else is reading it.  I ended up getting book 1 in a series by Lynette Eason called Extreme Measures.  Book 1 is called Life Flight.  I really enjoyed this book a lot, but sometimes I had to put it down because the suspense would get so intense.  Sometimes I just have to step away for a bit and then I can come back.  I'm the same way with movies and some TV series that we watch.  It really was a very good book.  I finished it Sunday (I hardly ever read a book that fast) and now I'm reading book 2 in that series called Crossfire and I think it's going to be really good too.  If you are interested in checking them out to see if you'd like them, you can click on the link to my GoodReads account in the sidebar to the right.  The book I'm reading now is my 21st read of the year.  For some reason, I'm really in the reading zone.

Hubby and I went out each day this weekend for a bit, but we really spent a lot of time at home and I think we both loved that.

Sunday we had 2 really good services, a nap in the afternoon which all made for a perfect Sunday.  I'm posting the pre-recorded Sunday morning sermon which was the final sermon in the "What the Cross Meant" series.

Well, that is pretty much our weekend in a nut shell.  I hope you had a really good one too.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day.
