Comparing Ourselves to Others

I've recently started a new hobby.  I've joined  the League of adults who like to color. In other words I like adult coloring books.My husband also has gotten into coloring books too.
I've been enjoying adult coloring books and it's very relaxing.

My post that I started on Wednesday evening was interrupted by a medical emergency. My husband was having chest pains which turned out to be a mild heart attack. That's very scary because he has never had heart problems. He had an angiogram last evening  which showed some blockage so a stent was put in. We are so grateful because it could have been much worse.
He came home today and he is doing well. He's a bit tired but he is happy to be home. He's on medications for his heart and blood pressure and it is recommened he change his diet. I've been thinking about making healthier meals for my f…

Spiritual Check Up My Answers Part 2

So I want to share my answers to the last five questions I posted a few days ago. But before I do that I want to go back to question 1 about worshiping well with others. Our pastor reminded us today that worship is not just about the music. It's about spending time with the Lord giving Him complete reverence. An active response to God. I'm not sure where we got the idea that worship is about the music only. Perhaps it could be because we call those who lead us into song "worship leaders" or "worship teams"?   Maybe they should be simply known as "song leaders" or "music directors". I don't know. I guess I'm just rambling.

Okay, getting back to the topic here are my last 5 answers.
6. How much joy do you have? I gave myself an 8 though I could have given myself an 9. I like to consider myself a joyful person but let's face it. There are times when I just don't feel joy. When things are going badly I want to crawl under the…

Spiritual Check-up My Answers

Yesterday I posted questions from our sermon that was done on Sunday so I'm going to start with the first five questions this morning and the remaining I will get to later today or tomorrow.

Do you worship well with others? I scored myself an 8. I really love getting together at church for hearing the word and singing. Our church has three services. The first one is traditional with hymns and piano. The second is a mixture of both with added guitar and violin. The third is Rock the Flock. It's louder, has drums and almost no hymns. We go to the second as a compromise because our teen and adult daughters want more contemporary songs. Tim and I like hymns. I personally prefer just singing and no instruments. How well do you grow with others?  I gave myself a 6 on this one. Though I enjoy going to Bible studies, getting involved in fellowship groups, I'm painfully shy so that affects my spiritual growth but I'm doing better than I used to be.How is your servant's heart…

Our New Family Members

Meet Kirstie and Dodie! Our nine week old tabbies. Aren't they adorable? We adopted them from a car shelter. They are twins so we didn't want to separate them.

Happy New Year 2017!

It's almost one in the morning here. I'm finishing up a movie with my hubby. Spirit of St. Louis with James Stewart.
I want to post my goals for the year so here they are:

Faithful to reading my Bible each day. This will include my devotional Bible reading plus my reading plan

Devote more time to prayer and time with God

Be kinder to people who post mean comments on a blog I follow. I noticed that I either get snippy or sarcastic. That is not how a daughter of God should behave.

Take more walks in my neighborhood. I may even be brave to take short walks in the snow if it's a light snow

Do more sewing and crochet projects

Lose some weight.
