I know it’s been awhile since I posted here, but I have since moved on and found new blogs to write on.
I have my personal blog here.
My new craft blog here.
My website here.
and lastly, my recipe blog here.
have fun reading!
Sorry. Thought I was going to keep writing here, but I’m just not going to.
I (Nick) am writing here: Nick’s Journal.
My photography can be seen here: Kansas Photography.
Noel isn’t sure where she’s going to settle down to write yet.
You know, I’m getting the itch to pull this old blog out of the mothballs. What do you think?
Checking on the chickens used to be a chore. That is until they started laying eggs. Now we both jump at the chance to see who can find the eggs first. Nick usually beats me to it. He loves to check for eggs! We raced to the hen house today, but Nick got there first again.
Cracked one open today and a double yoked one this time.
Our hens have started laying eggs. They haven’t quite figured out that they are supposed to lay in the nest boxes yet so we’ve lost quite a few eggs but we have also been able to use a couple of them. Our first egg that was not smashed was quite a jumbo sized egg. In fact, there were three yolks inside!
I want to be saturated with the Word of God.
You know how sometimes you can have a song stuck in your head for hours or even days. Nick was telling me that happened to him the other day at work while listening to his ipod while vacuuming.
I want the Word of God stuck in my head. Can you imagine? Not being able to think about anything else because some scripture verse won’t stop replaying itself in your mind. I think that would be the greatest thing in the world!
A few weeks ago, I dug out a cd I bought years ago called Power Confessions. The reason why is that I have been having problems with depression and just felt so mentally tired. I knew I couldn’t go on this way and that I needed to get myself under control. I knew I had a choice to make- dwell on what’s making me depressed or bring my thoughts under control by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The cd is all about confessing the Word. It tells me who I am in Christ, what I can do in Christ, what the scriptures say about me, what God is to me, and promises of God to me. The pastor says the scripture and gives you time to repeat it. He calls it his spiritual aerobics program. Each morning I listen to it and find myself strengthened and encouraged by the time I am done. I love it!
Lord, help me to saturate myself with your Word. Let it soak into me.
