I am also thankful for all of the men, women and their families that serve our country. Particularly the one's who have lost their lives serving our country. It is due to their work that we have the freedom that we do and I am thankful. But also to those who are currently serving and their families who sacrifice so much for our country! They are real hero's and I love them with all of my heart!
Tonight I am starting Priscilla Shirer's Jonah bible study with a small group of friends. I am excited not only to get back into a routine of a bible study and being in God's word but also looking forward to the fellowship with these sweet friends. I am ashamed to admit that I am not good about opening God's word and reading through the bible. I do better when I have structure and a study that keeps me diving into His word. Since hearing Priscilla at the Deeper Still conference I have been dieing to try her study. My Aunt (hi Aunt Jeanie) recently finished it and said it was amazing. Praying for God to prepare my heart for how this study will impact my heart and life!
My memory verse right now (11th verse through Beth Moore's blog) is Psalm 19:14 'May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer'.
