January 2023 Scripture Writing Plan -Forward

January 2023 Scripture Writing Plan HeaderHello friends,

I’m so sorry this is right at the crack of midnight, nearly 🙂  I was having technical difficulties with the blog, but I got it worked out just in time.

I apologize for not getting the December, 2022 scripture writing plan posted to the blog last month.  I fell in my driveway on the concrete while pulling a couch down the driveway to the curb (trying to de-hoard my late husband’s stuff finally) and I lost my grip on it and fell hard, with momentum onto my back.  I fractured my L1 vertebra and, as you can imagine I was in a crazy amount of pain.

I had surgery to inject surgical cement to the area on December 2nd and I’ve been recovering since then.  I can’t lift more than 5-10 pounds for a few more days then I can increase it to 20 pounds till April.  I’m not supposed to bend, but that’s next to impossible being a widowed mom to a special needs teenager.  I’m doing my best though.

But…onward and upward.  The surgery is behind me, so pray it continues helping.  I will say the intense pain I was in from the fractured vertebra is way way better, thank the Lord.

I do need ongoing prayer from you though, if you will.  I had a Cologuard test a few months ago that came back positive for colon cancer.  I’m going to be scheduled one day in January for a colonoscopy to (please Lord) rule it out.

So anyway, let’s keep in touch better in 2023!  Have a wonderful and blessed new year!

I usually print these out on 28 pound white paper (or 32 pound paper is even better) and just stick them right into my planner or journal. The heavier the paper, the less chance it will tear out of your binder or planner by accident and helps resist bleeding or ghosting from your pens or markers. It helps the page turn easier too. If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paper. I use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type. Going through a lot of ink printing out planner stickers? Do like I did and enlist in the HP Instant Ink program! I’ve saved so much money on ink since I did a year and a half ago. They have different plans, but the one I’m in (the most pages) is that I can print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $9.99 per month. You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things. Click on the image here to check it out! –>HP Instant Ink
