Thought Provoking Thursday

"When you and I walk by the Spirit, our life is characterized not by fretting, panic, and anxiety, but by the quiet peace that comes with trusting God."

Thought Provoking Thursday

"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."
- Vance Havner

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!

Thought Provoking Thursday

"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.
