I didn't realize just how much of each day I spend sitting around with my Dad, until he and my mom left for appointments all day Tuesday. It was then that I realized after finishing my daily "tasks" that I had nothing to do. I was so bored and couldn't figure out why it seemed like the day was dragging on. Typically, it's the other way around and I feel like I'm trying to sqeeze in all my responsibilities and ideas for the day before its over. So thanks for always keeping me occupied, Daddy! --Or maybe it's the other way around. ;)
When I'm not with Dad, I'm spending time with Mom. :D
I've always enjoyed talking to my mom about everything. We spend a lot of time together discussing our struggles, things that need to get done and how to do them, things that God has been showing us lately, or even what we're going to make for dinner that night, etc. We really do talk about everything! I'm so thankful for the closeness of our relationship. It's so nice to really have a best friend you can tell everything to. And that's exactly what she is to me!
I'm getting ready to start my homeschool Senior year.
...And I can't wait to say this ↓ :D
I've been planning out my schedule and workload for the next school year, and I'm getting really excited about the prospect of graduating from "highschool". I plan to start this year's curriculum the first week in September... That's only two weeks away!
^ And here's the proof. :D
I've been doing quite a bit of driving around the area lately. Whenever we need to make a grocery run or go on a few errands, I take the opportunity to add some hours to my time "behind the wheel". I still only have my permit so one of my parents has to be sitting in the passenger seat, but I'm working on finally getting my license. It's just a matter of time...... :)
I'm about to complete my plan for reading through the Bible in a year...
For the second time! I first took the challenge of reading my entire Bible through the course of a year in January of 2008. I learned a lot through that year and was able to stick with the reading plan and finish in January of 2009. ...A huge accomplishment for me! For the next few months I enjoyed reading at my own pace. Not until September did I feel the need to start following the plan again for three reasons:
Honestly, there were days when I failed to read my Bible at all because it simply didn't cross my mind. With following the reading plan I was motivated to dig into Scripture every single day.
I remembered reading about a man who was in his 10th year of reading through the entire Bible. Once he would finish, he would start all over again! I decided there really wasn't a reason why I shouldn't continue reading through the whole Bible either. Doing so would only be beneficial! :)
Like I said in the beginning, I felt led to do it!
I'm excited about finishing, but of course that won't really be the end. ;) I have so much more to gain in knowledge and depth of insight... I will continue reading until the day I die! Or until Jesus comes back to get me. Either one. :)
So there you have it! That's an overall look at what I've been up to lately. :) I hope you enjoyed reading. Have a blessed day everyone!
