For the Mind

Life Lately

I am currently…

LISTENING to this lovely sacred music CD by R.C. Sproul. I got it at a good price of $8.00 at a church bookstore! You can find it available as MP3 download for the same price too- but I like the hard copy with the words better. I’ve played it in the car several times through. Yes I’m that type of person.

THINKING about a blog name change, and transferring to a “.com” My mind has been brewing with plans for this blog (accompanied by prayers), so you may see some changes coming up on the blog soon…hopefully. If I find a domain name that is. #hardesthingever

WISHING I had more time to dedicate to my drawing and writing projects. #somuchtodo #solittletime

WATCHING uh, the weather? Yeah. One day it’s cloudy and nearly raining, the next its sunny. No joke.

DRINKING refreshing summer drinks like sparkling water and home-made lemonade. And hot cocoa basically every morning.

SMELLING pasta sauce and ground meat with spaghetti that my mom is cooking for lunch. Mmm mmm!

LEARNING a new melody for the hymn “And Can It Be”. And truths from Scripture every day. A verse from the book of Romans encouraged me recently and said: Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13)

TASTING delightful summer fruits. Blueberries, strawberries, grapes and…fruits!

READING the memoir Story of a Secret State, a WWII account from a Polish resistance fighter and spy. How would I describe it?#ontheedgeofyourseat 

DREAMING of a planned road trip sometime this summer! I almost can’t believe I get to travel this year, Lord willing. It’s a little dream come true because I haven’t been traveling for about 4 years. #thatsalongtime

WORKING on summer school classes, and other projects, like crafts. One day soon even on #changingthecarbrakes

What have you been doing lately?

  1. Lately I’ve been…
    Starting my next course of study
    Reading the letters of Henry and Marianne Williams, early missionaries to New Zealand
    Right now I am…
    Drinking hot cinnamon, ginger and honey
    Rejoicing in the box of books which has just arrived from Ligonier
    Listening to my brothers not doing their lessons 🙂

    1. Ha, ha! The last one was quite amusing 🙂 Thanks for sharing a snippet of what you’ve been doing! I can only imagine how exciting it is to receive a box of books! It’s a treat via snail mail that I always love.

      The letters of the Williams sounds interesting! Is there a specific book about their endeavors? Have you ever heard about Adoniram Judson, a missionary in the 1700-1800s to Burma?

      1. There are biographies of the Williamses, and they’re mentioned or included in books about New Zealand history. I don’t know of any particular books though.
        The books of their letters are both edited by Caroline Fitzgerald, one of their descendants. They are called “Te Wiremu – Henry Williams: Early years in the north” and “Letters from the Bay of Islands” which is Marianne’s letters.

        I think I have heard of Adoniram Judson, but don’t remember reading a book about him. I don’t think we have any in our library.
