Last days of summer :(

Hello everyone. I'm so sorry that I haven't got around and published anything new since August 8th. I have been just enjoying the last few days of summer, and am slowly getting ready for school. We haven't started and won't start for another 2 weeks, however, just writing out a lesson plan, and getting all my books together, and going over some new ones. I'm getting a little bit excited, but can't believe summer is about over! Fall will be here in a month and then, oh no, the long cold winter months. Especially where I live, you get about 5-6 months of cold, snowy weather. Well, it's still some months away!

This Sunday at church my family and I recited for the first time, Psalm 1 by heart! I was so amazed and very excited that we achieved this task. I know Psalm 1 is only 6 verses, but hey, it was a start, and as for my mom and dad, we need to go slow on them at first. :) We are working on Psalm 100 for the next time. You see, each month (third Sunday of every month) our church has what we call a, hymn sing. It's where we play hymns on piano or guitar, then our pastor reads scripture and allows a few moments of silence for the Holy Spirit to speak to anyone. Then you can either recite scripture as an individual, or together with your family. We decided to do it together as a family. However, my dad has challenged my siblings and I to take a chapter in the bible and work on it till the next hymn sing which will be, Sept.21. I have decided to do James 3. It will be a challenge, however, it's kind of motivating to do because you feel as you have achieved a great accomplishment. And you have! It's a great reward!

Oh, one quick thing before I go. As I was out and about last week, I saw a bumper sticker on a car, this is what it said. "God hears knee-mail!"
