Creating A Space

At Home

Hey you guys, I wanted to stop in for a minute and share with you about creating in your home.   

 I love to study the Bible , draw, water paint, read books and time alone with my Lord.  I have always wanted to create a space in my home just for me to do the things I love. I used to have my desk in the laundry room, but it was more isolated than I wanted it to be. There is nothing cozy about a laundry room. Anybody?

 I decided to move the desk into my bedroom placing it in front of the window and adding a real plant (the palm) and a diffuser.  This creates an oasis space during the evening and a cheery, sunny place in the daytime. Oh my goodness! I love my new space.

When working towards purging,
and organizing your home.
Do not forget to create areas
in your home making it a place you will love.

Keep your home full of love for one another, find ways to quieten your home and life.

The Nativity Story

Tonight after church our daughter had us to come over to their house to watch this production called "The Nativity Story" 

Oh my goodness, this is so closed to the bible, the characters, the place it was filmed at, and the costumes are amazing. 

If you want your children to see a visual of what Christmas is really about it, this is it.

Just wanted to share this amazing production of the birth of Christ. Encase you have not seen it.

Keeping our Christmas filled with Christ!
Merry CHRISTmas from our home to yours.

Take a  moment and read the post below on Studying the Bible,
I hope your will join me in studying his Word deeper.

Studying The Bible

Have you ever wanted to study the Bible in a deeper level, but you are not sure where to begin? I want to share with you some things that will help you find yourself reading and lingering in God's Word.

Bible study means to know God's Word.  Have you ever read a verse here and there and feel a sense of accomplishment?  Maybe we read where ever it falls open to.   Maybe its became a duty to us and we are just marking off our bible calendar.  I believe, we all can say we have been there, I know that I have.

 To know God better, we must spend quality time studying His Word.

Here are a few tips to help you to study deeper.

 Each day, set your studying time in the early morning when your mind is rested and clear.  Think about increasing your time spent in prayer and reading. God is Faithful and He is calling us to be faithful to Him.

Print off the chapter or verses you are studying. This will allow you to mark it up as you study it.
By circling words, highlighting verses that speak to your heart and taking notes.

Looking up words will help us to get a better understanding (in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew) Another source would be using a Bible concordance, Webster dictionary, and Commentaries.

References each verse it will lead you from one verse to another verse this will give you a fuller meaning.

Picking out a topic is a great way to learn deeper. Topics like holiness, salvation, healing, and forgiveness, forgiving, the whole Armour, fruit of the spirits or where ever God leads you.

Don't just read over your passage just once, but again and again to comprehend what your reading. 

Linger in God's Word. The deeper we study His Word the more we will hunger for it.
It will help us to get to know God through His Word and draw us closer to Him.

Look for commands for each of us to follow and obey. Obedience is where God is.

When a verse or chapter speaks to your heart, pray and meditate over it and be sensitive
to what the Lord is trying to speak to you about.  Write it in your journal away to look
back and remembering.

I hope you have enjoyed this simple guide on how to study the Bible.

Nature walk..

 quiet the little weather man......

the crunching of the leaves, the moments of stillness, 
the tree tops swaying in the breeze, 
with only the sound of a distance crow. 

I love walking in the woods, taking the time to slow life down.

Wishing you a joyful start to your new week.
