I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Words, from many sources

I am currently in the middle of three different devotional books/bible reading plans. I try to read all three of them every day. Yesterday I was feeling discouraged. As I was getting ready for bed I realized that I hadn't read ANY of them that morning. So, I read them all that night instead. Look at what God had to say to me, in all three of them separately. 

"It's safe to trust God's methods and to go by His clock." S.D. Gordon 

"Let us be faithful, and care for our own part which is to suffer for Him, and lay Christ's part on himself, and LEAVE IT THERE." George MacDonald (my own emphasis added)

"But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently." Roman's 8:25

"You've stayed long enough at this mountain. On your way now. Get moving. .... Look, I've given you this land. Now go in and take it. It's the land God promised..." Deut. 1:6-8

 Now, remind me again why I waited to read His promises? Wouldn't my day have gone better if I had started it in His word, as well as ended it in His word? Obviously, that is not a question that can be answered... but I think it would be yes. 
 On a side note, Andy is reading a book. Voluntarily. Without being required to read it for school. Please, no one pass out. Some wonderful new friends of ours loaned it to me this weekend when we had dinner at their house, and Andy has totally stolen it. Strangely enough, I can't be upset. I have never seen Andy interested in a book before. It is called "Saving Levi" and it is about a little Chinese baby who is abandoned and left for dead, and the woman who insists that he is worth saving. I think it is something that both Andy and I need to hear right now... a success story. A baby who survives, despite all odds. (Click here for a book review I found. )
 We just keep taking it one day, one hour, one page at a time. 
 I will keep hoping for a happy ending to our book. I have always liked books with happy endings.

Hey! You wrote about books too! You could link it to Booking Through Thursday! ha ha. I am very surprised that Andy is reading a book...if he starts that on a regular basis then he and Corey could have even MORE in common. Maybe he is trying to take up your slack!
