I wish I had some deep, wonderful thought for you, but I just don’t. I have to say that I can not think of a time when I have felt more in the will of God than these last 6 weeks. I am reading through the Bible and, key point here, loving it! It hasn’t become an obligation – it’s a joy. I carry my Bible every day to work and read it every chance I get. The second the girls are in bed, I get my Bible and journal and start to read. And these last 5 weeks of Bible study at church walking through the Psalms of Ascent with Beth have been beyond amazing. I have not done a Wednesday night Bible study since before I had children. It always seemed selfish to keep the kids up beyond their bed time. But, you know what? They do just fine!
So, all that to say, I am just plain giddy for God these days. I get so excited when I learn something new that I can hardly sit in my chair and I can’t wait to blog about it. I realize that my husband, best friend and my new sweet bloggin’ buddy Jenni are probably the only ones reading…but I’m fine with that! I’m just loving being in the Word.
Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, The Shield of your help and the Sword of your majesty!… –Deuteronomy 33:29

I hear ya! I spent my quiet time this morning saying basically that exact same thing to God. lol I always beat myself up because I didn’t read the Bible more, but I just didn’t have a desire to. Boy, has that changed! Now I can’t wait to see what new and exciting things God is going to show us.
It is amazing what happens when you finally start seeking.
(BTW, it was all I could do to wait until yesterday morning to tell you about what I had found Wednesday night. lol I almost called you then. lol)
Hey, I’m reading your blog entries! So that makes at least 4 people encouraged and challenged by the lessons you are gleaning from life and from The Word.
