Can you believe it? It's already August! The last month of Summer here in Texas. Well.... not "officially" but once school starts, summer is done! Fineto! Finished!
I have been working off and on getting things ready for school. I have one and a half weeks before I am officially back! Then one more week and my kids are off to school and students walk in the door! GOSHLY! Wasn't I just bragging about my lazy days of summer not long ago?
I am working on two seperate Bible studies this month. One I am doing in the morning, and the other I am doing in the evenings. When school officially starts, there will not be much time for comptuer stuff, nor tv (Thank you Jesus for the invention of the DVR!). Honestly, I like it like that! I like being busy. Not because it gives me a way of escape, but because I stay focused on the big things of life. The little petty things that often sidetrack me, is what I do not like. I mean, maybe the problem is I like them too much?
My mornings will be focused on discovering who God is. I love that! The book I will be reading is one I have read before, but as you know you can read something twice and find something new! Anyway, I am going to rediscover God in my daily presence as I seek His face in prayer, and read The Power of a Praying Woman by Stormie Omartian. In the evenings I am going to rediscover the life of Jesus, and uncover many new things that I long to know in the book Jesus, the one and only by Beth Moore. I have workbooks to them both, and plan on really seeing where God is going to take me!
The last two days we have worked outside, so I have not had any new encounters or signs in the clouds, but I have moved muscles that haven't been moved in a long time ~ with NO extra effort! No gym needed when you have a home and a family to tend to! I love being outside.
If the last two weeks in July were any idea of what August is going to be like, I am just as giddy as a school girl! OH! That's right! Because I am a teacher, I will ALWAYS be a school girl!
