How I spent the first day of Advent: we did grocery shopping for the week, laundry and dishes. But in between I read , had tea and knitted. I’m reading “Bittersweet” by Shauna Niequist.She has such a way of writing, she is one I can relate to. I watched a video of her speaking about Psalm 16 and contentment. 

Also I watched Ann Voskamps Advent video and finished reading Isiah. I love how God promises restoration in my life.

He also planted a new/old seed in me: to learn Spanish. Happy Advent!


Bible studies

Some of the Bible studies that have helped me are :
The Book of Acts
Those are by Proverbs 31 Ministries. So far they have been a source of spiritual help.I’ve been reading and and doing online studies with them since May.
My current Bible study is Joshua from Shereadstruth.
I’m looking forward to the holiday season studying The Beatitudes and Advent with them.
This will be my first year observing Advent.
I’m currently reading:
Come with Me by Suzanne Eller
On the launch team for Love Listen and Repeat by Karen Ehman
And rereading One Thousands Gifts by Ann Voskamp
Next week I leave for a trip so I’m taking along:
The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp and Wait and See by Wendy Pope another Bible study by Pr 31.
