Since school was unexpectedly canceled today and the rain made anything requiring the outside seem bleak, I took a two hour nap this afternoon…in my bed by myself.
And it was glorious.
Until 1:52 am.
When I am still wide awake.
So I decided to do something that I have been wanting to do for awhile. Write and share more.
My five things this week:
Replacing my daily Bible has been in the back of my mind lately. Some pages have so much writing and highlighting (my favorite thing to do in my Bible) that I cannot see the words. The spine is also starting to give way after several duct taping attempts. I picked up this last Fall. I cannot wait to break it in and for the leather to wear. I am also slightly panicking about not being able to easily find what I am looking for in my Bible. Highlighting and marking my Bible helps me tremendously in that way.
The quote below is from Oswald Chamber’s book If You Will Ask that I read and loved.
Here is a five day Bible reading plan that we are doing this year as a family. It is chronological and gives you two breather days a week to catch up.
I gave up my boyfriend, Amazon Prime, for Lent. But before Wednesday, I ordered some of the these, my new favorite pen for writing in my Bible. It writes thin and does not bleed through the pages. I have also been working on curtailing unnecessary spending in general and shopping my closet/desk/attic. Not shopping and being content with the things I have is definitely a heart conviction of mine. A good friend of mine has told me for years, “Just because you can, does not mean that you should.”
