Thought Provoking Thursday

You have to be different to make a difference. You cannot change anything by adding more of the same.

Thought Provoking Thursday

“The Holy Spirit operates upon the heart through the truth. He gives it a personal application; brings it home to the heart and conscience, and makes it effectual in changing the heart and life.”

A desire to glorify God must, then, be the ruling principle of all our conduct, the moving spring of all our actions. The moon reflects the glory of the sun just as we are to reflect the glory of God.

Pictures from Oct. Ladies Metting

My mom and I have started a ladies ministry that meets once a month. Last month we had a country theme. All the ladies have been enjoying the fellowship and devotion. Mrs. Westerman, one of the ladies, shared a devotional on contentment. Here are a few pictures:

"God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever."

Of Life, Teaching and Other Such Things...

Life has been keeping me extremely busy the last couple of months since my return from Spain. I am well into my second month of teaching. This year I started teaching at another school along with the one I have been teaching at previously. Altogether I have over 40 students - talk about crazy! At the new school I am teaching two different music classes along with several private students. This has been a new learning experience but I am glad for the opportunity. I had been wanting to get more classroom experience. It is amazing how the Lord opens up doors we don't even have to go looking for. 

Along with teaching three days a week, I am working for my dad two days. This gives me a very busy work schedule. The fun part is trying to keep three different jobs straight. I am afraid this isn't so great for my sanity, but at least I am learning how to juggle in the process. 

Last month, my mom and I started a ladies ministry in our home. We are meeting once a month for a meal, devotional and games. Each month we are having a different theme. Last month, we had a tea party theme and I gave the devotional (which I plan to post at some point here). Tomorrow night is our next meeting. Hopefully, I shall be able to get some pictures to post on here. Yesterday, we spent most of the day preparing and getting our house decorated for fall. I must say I am really enjoying this lovely fall weather and the changing of leaves!

God is Good all the time.
All the time...God is good!

"Before dawning we must have darkness; before healing, sickness must be present; before desire fulfilled must be longing unmet."

Thought Provoking Thursday

  Contentment is keeping our eyes focused on Christ, the daily forgetting of self, and being an instrument of Christ to those around us - while finding joy in serving others.

Torrejon del Rey

My second to last week in Spain, Rosie and I went with Bro. Buker to camp along with one of the girls from the church. Rosie and I were not able to stay at camp so we stayed at a nearby pueblo with a Peruvian family. We had a fun time with there two little girls. Abbi was 6 and Helen was 11, I believe. They enjoyed teaching me lots of new words in Spanish. One day we went to the grocery store with them and as they were putting things into the cart they told me the Spanish word and then made me say it. Here are some of the pictures from our stay:

Home Now

I have arrived back home as some people have been asking. I arrived back in the states about a week and a half ago. It has taken some time to adjust back to life and such. I should start back into teaching in a couple of weeks. Please pray that the Lord provides enough students for me over this next year. I have lots more pictures from my trip that I plan to post as soon as I am able. Thank you so much for your prayers during my trip!!! The Lord taught me so much while I was in Spain which I hope to share with you soon.
