nothin' exciting

25 June 2009

just been hanging out.
mostly finished with my college class - i worked on it for a while today, and it's my goal to be all the way done this weekend! :)

been making lots of cards this week...

ben got me a neat card making book for my birthday, and i'm going to try to shake up my cards a bit - i've noticed i am in a rut! even though they are all different, they are all kind of the same :P

and other than that, nothing exciting going on here!
it's rained a lot since last week, although yesterday and today we had a bit of a break which was nice. my shoulder's been bugging me - super tight for some reason - so i went to get a little massage yesterday, which was also nice.

ben's working nights right now, so we have opposite schedules, (not so nice) but he's so good about finding a way to talk to me a little each night. he's such a sweetheart!

i'm trying to stay focused on the positive and in the word each day...
here's 2 verses i read today that really encouraged me:

psalm 92:1-2
1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night,

i'm so thankful for a faithful God. even when i'm feeling lonely, He is always there. His mercies are new each morning.
so... that's all from japan for now. :) just wanted to say "hi".

Sorry Ben's gone, I am glad he is such a great husband to make time and call.
The Lord is faithful keep trusting in Him.

Those cards are great! I'm kind of in a rut with mine too so I'd love to hear what you think of that book. It looks fun!

Hang in there. I'm praying for you this summer!

you know what is funny? I came across those verses a couple wks ago, and really got encouraged by verse 2. So I've been trying to make it more practical in my prayer life, in the morning, I focus on declaring his love. Then I go through the day. Then I lay down at night, I recount all the ways He was faithful through the day! It's something I've been working on :) I think it's so cool how God speaks to us through the same verses even though we are oceans apart! love you!
