What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving . .  . the fantastic weather we are now having.  The tale end of last week I think I almost died from heat but, it took a 30 degree nose dive on Monday.  It was cool enough that we all had pants on, not shorts!

I'm loving . . . my Dancekin's pants.  I bought them last year on clearance and had forgotten how much I loved them.  I think I will be picking up a few more pair for winter. 

I'm loving . . . how much fun we had at my brother's house this past weekend.  Talk about a relaxing time plus it was super adorable to watch how my kids became my nephews shadow all weekend.  Too cute!

I'm loving . . . that fall is coming - the smells, sights, sounds and fun!  I can't wait until we get to go to the pumpkin patch and cider mill or for Halloween.  I still have to find the costume for my oldest though!

I'm loving . . . that my parents willingly took our dog this past weekend so we didn't have to board her.  They love her almost as much as we do :-)

I'm loving . . .  my husband.  He's just so wonderful - he even drove on Friday night despite having driving all day . .well all week .. for his job just because we thought there might be a lot of traffic.  He's nice like that!

What are YOU loving today?

My 2011 Fall Devotional Plan

Not long ago, I posted about the upcoming session at the Good Morning Girls website.  I've been in touch with my "old" group and we are getting ready to start up once again on September 15th  I'm excited to get back into a routine with my friends and to have that accountability once again.

I thought I would share what I plan on doing for my daily quiet time this fall.

First up, I will be doing the I John Book Study, which you can also download HERE.  I really have enjoyed the S.O.A.P study method that is presented and the fact that by the time the 12 weeks is done, I've written out an entire book of the Bible.   To help with this, I use J. Vernon McGee Thru the Bible Study Guides.  I love how he explains each passage so that it is clear and understandable.

Second, I'll be picking up with these two books:

The way I treat these two books in my devotional time is simply this - I do the Daily SOAP reading from 1 John.  Next, I take one book and read a chapter on Monday.  On Tuesday, I take time to answer the study questions that come at the end of each chapter.  On Wednesday, I read a chapter from the next book and answers the questions on Thursday.  Friday I leave open to catch up or take time to read from one of the other learning books from my book goal list.  I tend to get bored very easy so having several books to read really helps me out!
