Still Here Writing Away


So today is day 8 of the #Write365 project, and I am still writing.  This weekend I am enjoying some time with my husband – the love of my life even though he is attending a conference. Fortunately,  I was able to ride with him and get some time to spend on anything I want.  So a large part of my time is going to be spent writing.  I also want to spend time on planning my upcoming activities for my blogs.  I plan on working on my Bible Journaling.

I am being ambitious again and trying to participate in both the Documented Faith Project and the Documented Life project.  So this weekend is going to be a perfect time to work on catching up on these projects.  I decided to buy the binder kit for Documented Faith – and tonight I have been working on just the front cover.  So here is what I have done so far.  I still have some finishing touches and I still need to do the spine and the back.  Once those are finished, I will work on the dividers and the spreads for each month – as far as adding dates, days of the week and months to each page.


I also plan on catching up on my devotionals and my reading.  It sounds like a lot, but I am going to have a lot of free time.  When we arrived at the lodging we had reservations, I was shocked – and that is putting it mildly.  We had previously stayed at the lodging here and while the rooms were nice, the buildings were older.  Now there is a brand new building that is almost like a small town unto itself.  One day next week, I will probably post pictures.  In the meantime here are some pictures of our room.

I am a very blessed individual and I know it.  My husband loves and does everything he can to pamper me and let me know I am loved.  It is hard to believe that we started our journey to being a married couple 25 years ago.  He is the perfect soulmate for me and I love him with all my heart.  It is amazing that we get to mark the month of our first real “date” – although I can’t really call it a date – because my father and several thousand other people were present.  I am just so blessed to have him in my life.

So what is going on in your world?  I would love to hear from you.  If there is anything I can pray about for you, let me know.

Scriptures of Thanksgiving – November 3, 2015

Thankgsgiving Scripture ActivitySo our family homeschools and we also love the Bible and getting into God’s World.  Several different places over the past few weeks, I have seen suggestions for doing month long activities around Thanksgiving.  So that is what our family has chosen to do.  Based on some suggestions I saw online and then using online tools and our concordance, we came up with a list of Scripture passages.  My husband and I managed to merge our ideas of what this should look like.

The first thing we did was get each person a special journal to write in each day.  The second thing we did was determine when we wanted to do the activity.  In our case, we have decided to do it right after dinner.

The next thing we had to decide was how much of each passage we wanted everyone to write.  I decided that quality was more important than quantity.  So we stuck with a goal of no more than three passages.  So each night we gather around the table with our notebooks, Bibles, and pens or pencils to dive into God’s Word.

We open with prayer.  Then I tell everyone what passage we are going to be copying.  The first two nights we read the Scripture passage, discussed the passage and then everyone writes the passage down in the journals.  We are devoting two pages side by side in the journal to each day.  On the one side is the verse.  On the second side, they write down anywhere from 2 to 5 things they are grateful for along with anything else they may want to include.  In my case, I tend to include cross-references.

This is what my  journal and sample of my Thanksgiving pages look like:
