Jeff took the boys to see Transformers this afternoon. I'll have dinner ready for them when they get home - Chicken Parmigiana - yum. In the mean time I've scrapped. I made this two-page, multi-photo page using patterned papers and letter stickers. No expensive embellishments!!! And to top it off the 4th of July was only 11 days ago. I don't think I've ever scrapped an event that soon after the event happened.
I'm still reading the book 'Don't Waste Your Life' by John Piper. Is there a book you've read that you refer back to, read again and again, find quotes you like - and want to live by, one that you want to change you from the inside out, you dog ear at the top and the bottom, you highlight, mark up and just plain wear out. This is that book for me. I've never read books by John Piper but I guess if I had to pick a book by him this would be a good one. Yep, he tells you how not to waste your life. If you're not ready to hear it - don't read this book.
My bible study this past week was on the Woman at the Well (John 4:1-42). If I learned anything this past week it was this: If I want 'streams of living water' to flow through me I must DRINK. Drink. Drink. And Drink some more.
One of our pastors from church just came back from Zimbabwe and Ruwanda and he asked us "Can I give them your name? Can I tell them you'll go?" While sitting there last night my thoughts were: "Jeff (that's the pastors name), give them my name. I'll go." More and more I am hearing GO! The fluttering in my stomach isn't fear - it's excitement. What are you going to do Lord? What are you going to do?
Oh, hey here's that 4th of July page:
