Good morning, friends! I'm awake and at 'em and feeling highly organized today! Don't have a lot on the schedule this week, so that feels good...

Bible Study... Start Week 3 lessons of No Other Gods, also reading One Thousand Gifts and learning how to have a life of gratitude and contentment

Memory Verse...  2 Corinthians 3:18
"And we who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit."

Husband Encouragement...
♥ Clean house.
♥ Have his work clothes ready.
♥ Keep evenings for him.

Rearrange a mini photoshoot so he'll be able to visit family in a couple weeks.

so glad your aunt is doing better; I'll be praying for her. You sound happier and less stressed, friend. And can I borrow that book you're reading when you're done? Is No Other Gods a write-in-it study?? Are you liking it?

another friend was asking about date ideas and it reminded me of you. So I stumbled across a new website and came up with some ideas to share. There's more on the site, but these were some of my favorites.
