My Thursday Thoughts!

Oh my blog has been neglected this week! We have so much going on right now....I have not had time to update. I think this might be my story for the next few weeks actually.

One exciting thing this week....for everyone participating in Beth Moore's Scripture Memory Challenge! I had a moment (or a few moments!) of stress and fear this week. And guess what? The 3 verses that I have memorized in my heart this year came flooding to the front of my mind! I just started reciting those verses. I think that is exactly why God wants us to hide His Word in our hearts! I was helped and I got focused again and knew God was with me! Just wanted to share that. :)

Funny thing this week....so I was running low on deodorant. yep! I was scraping the bottom for any last bit possible. Well, I mentioned to Mr. Tim that I needed to stop by Wal-Mart to pick up some deodorant because I have been out for a few days! (gross!!!) Then he says to me....that he has been out of deodorant too and he has just been using mine!!!!!! No wonder my deo got used up so fast! I guess they say... Secret...strong enough for a man, but made for a woman! heehee! We stopped off at Wally World last night for two sticks of deodorant! :-)

Unexpected thing this week.....we are having Spring-like weather in our city right now! It's AMAZING! It has been in the 60's all week. So gorgeous!

Money Saving Madness this week....I was going through my cupboards and realized I had everything I needed to make Taco Soup! YES! So, that's what we are having tonight. (plus...we will have left-overs for the next few days).

Romantic-ness this week...we might not have been able to celebrate Valentine's Day cause I was sick, but Mr. Tim leaves me sweet little notes around the house...and that makes me SO happy! I love little, unexpected things.

Thankfulness this week.......I'm so thankful that God is with me at all times! He is my rock, sustainer, provider and my JOY! I'm thankful for the little joys in life. I'm thankful for my FAMILY! (hi to my family that reads the blog!! i looooove you guys!)

Hmmm. Well I think that is all my thoughts for right now! :) I hope everyone has a lovely and joy-filled Thursday! I'm excited for my taco soup and I think I will talk a walk in this super weather we are having. It's going to be fabulous!

xoxo,
Amanda

That is so funny about the deodorant. haha
I love when a verse pops into my head at the right time :)
I agree...that is why God wants us to hide His Word in our hearts!
I hope you are feeling all better now!
