Monday's Strength. Book Dating. Pressing On!

Hello There! 
I hope you all have a wonderful 2019!  There will be some changes here that I hope will bless you!  I'm also hoping they will help me "work smarter, not harder!"  Take good care and Happy New Year!

Monday's Strength.
Like I said in my last post, let us go forth into 2019 with the LORD's joy, confidence, faith, trust and hope!  Perhaps if we remember this Word, we will be better equipped to do just that!

Book Dating

The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People, NIV
Though I fell behind in The Story, I'm still enjoying reading it!

Doing Busy Better: Enjoying God's Gifts of Work and Rest
Doing Busy Better by Glynnis Whitwer was at first a disappointment, but I'm so glad I stuck with it!  There are those books that take a bit to capture our hearts and minds.  

She's In a Better Place (The Fairlawn Series Book 3) by [Hunt, Angela]
As for audio books, I've enjoyed listening to Angela Hunt's Fairlawn Series!  I'm on the fourth and final book, She's in a Better Place

Six Day Hero, the Hb

Next up will be:  Six Day Hero, the Hb by Tamara Stein.  

I've fallen off my reading wagon and am eager to enjoy the ride again.  

Pressing On!
I press on toward the goal...Philippians 3:14a
Here are my weekly goals for this week!
1.  Finish these two Christmas Pillows! 

2.  Finish two matching machine embroidered mug rugs. I have so much to share!  I've gotten hooked on machine embroidery!  
3.  Finish one crocheted dishcloth.
4.  Make progress on an afghan for a special lady.  

Instead of a prayer shawl, I'm making her an afghan.  She and her three young daughters lost their husband/father three years ago to brain cancer.  She is now fighting breast cancer.  I'm hoping this afghan will be large enough for her and her daughters to snuggle under.  

That's it, folks!  It's nice to end the year with plans for a great future!

Monday's Link Ups


  1. I loved The Fairlawn Series. I need to reread it sometime.

    1. I like that it is light, yet has a message. This 4th book has me wondering who indeed ends up in a better place. Glad you stopped by! Happy New Year!

  2. I need to get back to crafting. I did do a bit more cooking and baking this year but I have an embroidery project I started last Christmas and didn't get very far. See what I read at Girl Who Reads

    1. Life is funny...I did way more crafting and less cooking and reading! I find time to "read" via audiobooks as I drive and sew. I checked out your books and wow! You are a fabulously avid reader! Happy New Year!

  4. Happy New Year! Thank you for sharing! Jer. 29.11 is one of my favorite verse
    Praying for the cancerous mother and her daughters.

    1. Thank you, Birthe! Take good care and Happy New Year!

  5. I think your goals sound reasonable and fun. I wish you well.

    Thanks for the scripture verses. My goal is to re-read the New Testament this year.

    1. I like your goal as well.....I just may copy you! Take good care and looking forward to reading your posts in 2019!
