Project 365: Weeks 3 & 4 "from the blehs...back to normal"

Sunday, January 15, 2012

After ridding this corner of its CHRISTmas tree, cleaning the house, and showing it yesterday, we set up the boys' racetrack here and let them go to town with it. It was the first thing they wanted to do when we got home from church today, though THESE photos are actually from Saturday. Read on and you'll see why I have no photo for today...

Three Gifts From God's Word:

#52 "Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."  Lamentations 3:22-24

#53 "So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him."  2 Corinthians 5:9

#54 "If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory."  Colossians 3:1-4

Counting Out Loud (43-48)

#43 One Thing I Wore

This little shirt was my Young Musicians shirt from third grade. It always makes me smile to see it, because I have such good memories of learning to sing in a choir with a fabulous, inspiring, godly, encouraging director and friend. 


#44 One Thing I Gave Away

I made this giraffe-print, homemade "Snuggie" for my mom for CHRISTmas. The tag says "Made By Elves" because she once made a tag like that and put it in a coat I got for CHRISTmas one year when

Counting Out Loud (25-27)


#25 A Gift in My Hand



#26 A Gift I Walked By



#27 A Gift I Sat With

Counting Out Loud (1-24)

Do you remember when I wrote about Counting to One Thousand? Well, it's a new year, and I was thinking it might be nice...it might be a helpful exercise for this selfish heart of mine...to make it a daily habit. To list things as they come and...even...to share them with you. So I'm daring to take the "Joy Dare," and I pray that as I count the gifts that my Father bestows on me, my gratitude will equal greater joy in Him.

Three things about Myself I am Grateful For:

#1 The touch of keys that open my heart

Project 365: Week 52b "christmas time"

Saturday, December 24, 2011

After a morning of cooking and cleaning and last minute here and theres, we had a late lunch (or was it an early dinner??  Linner?  Dunch?  Who knows with these crazy Davidsons...) with some of the Davidson family. These two were completely occupied with Uncle Aubrey's binoculars, which he sent them home with, by the way. Thanks, Uncle Aubrey!!




And then Saylor and I got to church early to do a little sangin'.
