Day Eighteen - Plans/dreams/goals you have.
Joel and I were able to get away for a marriage retreat this past week. It was lovely. Something that I have enjoyed every time we've been able to get one. We use A Prayerbook for Husbands and Wives to help structure our time. But we also make sure that we spend some time choosing a family verse for the year. Our verse for this past year was "Delight yourself in the Lord and you will receive the desires of your heart." We talked about the things we learned in regards to that verse and it's pretty amazing how God reveals things to use through his Word. Our verse for the coming year is from Colossians 2:7
Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
I think that we are going to have a great year learning about this verse. It will be interesting. I've already been contemplating the idea of putting roots down into Jesus. It's a wonderful thought and I'm excited about what we might learn this year.
Short term plans I've got a bunch of projects to finish up. Including a pair of socks and a hat for my mom, smock a prepleated jumper for my nephew, finish a dress for Hannah, and I really want to get to work on her quilt and have it finished for Christmas or better yet, her birthday. That's pretty much it for me. What are you up to lately?
