Project 365 A Day Late - November 1, 2009

Project 365

I'm a full day late for Project 365 this week so I hope Sara will excuse me. :) I don't have much this week since I haven't been watching the girls as much.

Tuesday: Remember that longhorn behind the chain-link fence? Word Girl took that picture from a moving vehicle and now she has entered it in a science competition. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of her with the picture so I settled for the picture en route to the drop-off location.

Thursday: I took Word Girl to the orthodontist so we got to spend a little time together just the two of us. We don't get a lot of that. Okay, just the two of us and Tobi.

Sunday: This is actually from yesterday but since I had so little for the week I wanted to share this. We visited a new church yesterday and when we were walking to the truck to go home, Miss Personality found this rock in the parking lot. I let her know that it was a special "I Love You" from God to her.

The girls came over after church so since we had the ROCK, we quickly learned another Bible verse.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer. My God is my rock in whom I take refuge. Psalm 18:2

I allow paraphrasing as long as it doesn't alter the meaning of the verse. I figure if they can paraphrase the verse then they have a pretty accurate grasp of God's Word. After I explained "fortress", "deliverer", and "refuge" the paraphrasing was something like "The Lord is my Rock, my Protector, and my Saver..." Sometimes the word Rescuer was used and occasionally while they were practicing, the word Hero came out it. I didn't accept Hero as an alternate word but I imagined God was just beaming with pride.

Enjoy your week!

He is my deliverer...but I think he is a hero too! I love that.

Great photos. I hope Word girl wins the contest. Such fun.

I think even the "Hero" word is great! After all, He rescued us from that fiery destination...Great lessons you share with them! God bless.

Deliverer, Hero, Rock, Rescuer, Fortress..... I just love Him for being all that and more for me!!

Thanks for sharing and reminding me today that even in the small things (the rock) He will encourage and reveal His goodness to us!

Have a blessed week!

Sweet Blessings!

Oh how I would take Hero any day in my book for one word to describe Jesus!

Hi Edie,

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a thoughtful and encouraging comment.

Your blog looks like a great place to be. I love learning from other Christian women. Blogging has really blessed me in that I get to meet others that have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It's great to have that commonality and to be able to share it with others that understand.

Blessings to you,

Hi. I'm getting ready to go to bed now. Didn't even read anything but wanted to stop by and say Hi and thank you thank you thank you for your encouragement and prayers.
Pulling it together and feeling a little better every day....I'm even actually vertical today (as opposed to laying down---horizontal).

Coming back tomorrow to catch up on what's new with you!!

(been sleeping more lately. here it is 1:10 AM and I'm already going to bed!---no school tomorrow---no school bus *sigh* :)

Good Night!

Miss Personality's eyes literally sparkle in this picture--it's beautiful!

And Word Girl's matted photo might as well be in my stack of Photography entries for Reflections over here!! How exciting....

Pictures are great a day late or even later. Thanks for posting!

Edie, I love how you pour into your grandchildren not only your love but the love of God and His Word.....I want to be like that when I have grandchildren!!

Yes, I second everything the others have said. You are a great grandmother and such patience. Wow! The pictures are great and to turn that rock into a spiritual thing is amazing. God has blessed you with a lot of gifts.

Missed everyone while I was gone and could not get on anybody's laptop to keep up.

I'm having a difficult time getting back to posting. I need your prayers.

I'm going to try Firefox. My youngest daughter has had it for a while but never mentioned it and my nephew who works with computers with the school system in our county says he really likes it.
Luv u,

I saved a rock that I found at Church camp for years. I lost it when I went in the Navy.

So how was the new Church? I am waiting on a new one that is being built close to our home.

Irritable Mother said...

Ditto on the Grandma comments. *grin*

Yeah, I'm needing Him to be my Saver today. He saved me yesterday. Trusting Him for another measure of grace today!
