Last month, a friend of ours offered to teach a mini-class on arranging flowers, and she thought the little girls would especially enjoy it. Of course, it also called for an opportunity to make and share fun treats.
We all had a sweet afternoon of fellowship and learning. Thank you, to Mrs. K, for taking the time to share with us.
“Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.” Psalm 66:16
Brood IV, the 17-year cicadas, launched last month in Kansas and in five other states. These cicadas have been in the ground in their nymph stage for 17 years before they finally emerged. The females then lay eggs, which when they hatch, will drop to the ground and burrow for 17 years. I marvel at our wonderful Creator, who has intricately fashioned even the smallest insect.
Christopher captured a time-lapse video of one emerging from its shell, and I thought you’d enjoy some pictures with Abby too.
Just so you don’t think your speakers have a problem, this one does not have music.
“And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:25
Little details in life amount to bigger things. For example, many people read through the Bible multiple times throughout their life. Wouldn’t it be neat to keep track of each time?
In 2011, I decided to start documenting that myself. I don’t follow any special read-through-the-Bible plan; it’s simply a certain amount of time I spend reading God’s Word each day. Some days I read more chapters than others because there are parts that go much quicker (aka: genealogies!) than the New Testament. I will also occasionally take a break and read in a different book such as Psalms.
This week, I finished another read through. I keep track of the beginning date and end date in the front of my Bible. It’s a special way to chronicle journeying through the most precious book in the world! Try it!
“Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.” Psalm 119:68
