In less than 24 hours, we’ll be ringing in 2013. It’s time for those New Year’s resolutions. I’ve not thought about resolutions these last weeks though. Sure I could stand to lose a few pounds …. okay maybe a few more than a few! Exercising would be beneficial. Healthier food choices wouldn’t hurt either. Resolutions of the spiritual nature would be a wise choice. But as soon as I make them, I’ll break them. Failure abounds and resolutions are forgotten as the calendar pages turn over and over until it’s time to make those resolutions again. I don”t have the energy or time to think about resolutions no matter how good they may be right now. And that’s okay with me and it’s not because I’m giving myself an excuse to not exercise or eat healthier. And I’m not forsaking those spiritual disciplines that grow my faith and relationship with Christ. Yes, I’ll keep plugging away memorizing our M & M Monday verses but to make resolutions as this time of year dictates, it’s not happening here.
But there is a word that has been in the forefront of my thoughts these last months. A word that I will focus on walking in obedience to in 2013. Sometimes, well most times if we’re honest, we would prefer the circumstances of life to change but God’s preference overrides ours and we find ourselves having to surrender to His will – sometimes time and time again. I’m in one of those seasons in which I’d like a few things to change. I really should keep in my sights that these things are truly minor in the grand scheme of things but that doesn’t always happen when I find myself in the thick of things. Maybe this is your experience right now. Or perhaps those things that you wish were not are of a greater and more far reaching nature. Whatever the case, it comes down to following the example of Jesus and speaking those words of surrender our Savior did in the Garden of Gethsemane. I’m sure you’re thinking right about now that my word is surrender. It isn’t although it’s to be my – and your – constant mindset. Continue reading
Christmas is past and the holiday season is coming to an end. Some of us have put away all the Christmas decor and some of us still need to tackle that job! Soon the newness of the year and the stillness of winter will be upon us. Do you have any plans? You might have read about our upcoming Bible study or seen the image in our sidebar. We promised details as the time grew closer so here we are to share some. Although we’ve led Bible studies before, hosting a Bible study on a blog is new territory for us! We’re in a learning phase and we would appreciate your prayers as we embark on this new adventure! We sure hope you’ll join along with us in this our inaugural Bible study!
Women in the Word (WitW) officially begins on Monday, January 7th. As women in the Word, our focus will be on the lives of the women in the Word for the next twelve weeks. Each week, a different woman will be featured as we start in Genesis and travel through the Bible. This is a perfect set up for busy lives. We’d love for you to join us every week but we know that sometimes life throws us some curves. So if you miss one week, jump right back in the next and you won’t have missed a thing! Continue reading
A Christmas Story
“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:10) Continue reading
“She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day.”
“Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”
“….who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.”
Could you name each woman described in the Scriptures above? If you’ve been a believer for any amount of time, you’re familiar with Anna the Prophetess, Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Mary of Bethany. This was not a quiz to test your Bible knowledge though! And there is a more important question than the title of this blog post! Do YOU want to be known as these women are known? Continue reading
One event we always looked forward to at Christmas time is a Christmas Cookie Exchange and we’ll be writing more on that in the coming weeks. Until then we thought it would be neat to host a
Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange!!
I’ve asked our writers to share their favorite Christmas Cookie Recipe with you, and we’re busy compiling them to share with you during the month of December leading up to Christmas,
but we also thought it would be really neat if you would also share your favorite cookie recipe with us as well!! We could actually receive some recipes from all over the world!!
If you would like to share your favorite recipe with everyone, and we hope you will, please email the recipe to [email protected].
We will need your complete recipe,
And a picture attached would be great, but not necessary.
We also hope you will share with us why this recipe is your favorite!!
Thank you all in advance! I can’t wait to collect & post all these recipes!!
‘Til then, sue
The T2 Women have begun a Bible Memory Group over at ScriptureTyper.com and you are invited to join us there as we memorize God’s Word. Scripture Typer has helped me tremendously as I’ve committed to memorizing Scripture. I’ve memorized quicker and have retained longer as I review weekly.So we’ve decided to start a group and hope you’ll join us there. It may seem like just something else to add to your to do list and honestly I hemmed and hawed about starting a group thinking no one would be interested nor want to spend time using this tool. And honestly I don’t use it every day. But then I was convicted that taking the time to learn God’s Word is time well spent. After all, how much time do we spend surfing the web, reading blogs and email, playing games and so on… How can I make excuses to not begin a group and then not invite you to join me? Now I know that memorizing in this manner may not be for all of you but there are others like me who would benefit from this use of their computers! So each week you’ll see the link below at the bottom of the M & M Monday post. Click on the link and connect to our group. Start memorizing wherever you join us. Each 5 week session will be in its own collection to keep things in sync! If you have any questions, email me at [email protected] Hope to see you there! (read below to see how Scripture Typer can help you learn the Word)
Here’s what the people at Scripture Typer have to say about their online Bible Memory system:
- ScriptureTyper accelerates memorization by utilizing both visual AND kinesthetic memory.
- Tap into your kinesthetic memory which combines your sense of touch and your innate ability to remember patterns and feelings.
- Combine touch typing with Bible memory and feel the patterns of the scripture as you type them so that you memorize faster, increase retention, and enhance your capacity to memorize verses.
