this week we've been reading thru the book of Revelation... it's pretty incredible. last year we read thru the whole old testament, so this year it's the new testament : )
we don't really read from start to finish, but kinda do one book/chapter of the new testament at a time, then skip ahead and read another one.
my favorite book of the new testament would probably be Matthew or Luke... they're some really great ones. then my favorite from the old testament would definitely be Psalms... it's always been my favorite! but riiiight after that one would be Proverbs... when i was young, my mom taught me Proverbs chapter 3, and i've almost always remembered it. my favorite verse(s) from that chapter would definitely be verses 5-6... Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
my mom's dad gave her that verse before he died, so it's always been a special verse in our family.
right now i'm doing a devotional called Devotions for the God Girl by Haley DiMarco... it's really good. it's not too fancy... it's just a 365 day devotional, with a special verse/chapter to focus on each day, with a point/lesson to go along with it. i really like it so far, and it's easy to relate to.
sometimes, i just like to go outside, and lay in the grass, and read a book or just rest. God's creation is s.o. beautiful. there's nothing like it! just to lay and hear the birds chirping, the wind blowing, and feel the warm sun on your face is overwhelming.
our yard looks so green and healthy right now... the flowers and plants are in full bloom, and the grass is lush and thick. it's beautiful. the other day when we were outside in the garden, my sister was starting to pick a flower, and a little rabbit hopped out from under the bush! it was so sweet. so now we have a little rabbit burrow in our garden, so we may be seeing some rabbit kits soon!
well, so close it up, here are some of the verses from the chapter of Proverbs. i hope everyone has a great day!
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
