April 2024 Scripture Writing Plan Christ’s Rapture and Second Coming

April 2024 Scripture Writing Plan headerHere is our April 2024 Scripture Writing plan. (Better late than never 🙂 ) Please forgive the last minute plan. I was sick all of March. First influenza A for two weeks then it turned into bronchitis. Finally my doctor called me in antibiotic and it worked. I’m at the tail end of it now.

I hope the rest of you are well and healthy.  There are so many bugs going around.  I’m guessing this wacky weather we’ve been having is part of it.  Here in north central Ohio we’re having summer one day and winter the next.  It’s crazy.

I decided to have Christ’s Rapture and 2nd Coming as our theme this month.  I consider myself a watchman (watch woman?) and things are converging so rapidly that I thought it was time for a reminder to look up because our redemption draws near. (Luke 21:28).

April 2024 scripture writing plan thumb

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.

For planner stickers, etc:  If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paperI 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 vinyl 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 most economical  way, however for everyday planning stickers. 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 several years ago. They have different plans, but the one I’m in is the plan that lets me print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $11 per month. That’s regardless of the amount of ink on the page.  I love printing out pictures on photo paper.  I fit 4 4×6-inch photos on one sheet of photo paper.  Imagine the amount of photos you can print at four pages per one page and the cost is the same for a full page of photo ink as it is for one dot.  It goes by the page, not the amount of ink!  You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things.

March 2024 Scripture Writing Plan -Renewal

March 2024 Scripture Writing Plan Header

I hope you all have had a blessed winter.  I for one am glad that Spring is so close.

Here in north central Ohio, the weather has been so odd.  One moment it’s like late Spring and the next more like the February it has been.

In this area, February is normally the snowiest, coldest month of the year.  It’s been awfully nice to have such beautiful days, but one has to wonder if we may have to pay for it, don’t you think? 🙂

As for me, it’s the never ending saga of trying to lose weight.  It’s the story of my life 🙂

I will post about it soon, I believe.

But for now, here is our scripture writing plan for March.  I need some renewal in my life for sure 🙂  But I’m ever mindful of the eternal renewal paid for us on the cross of Christ.  Let me know your thoughts as you work through this plan!

God bless you all!

Mindful Monday Devotion – It’s About Your Attitude

Mindful Monday Jan 29 2024 headerI’ve decided to try to bring the Mindful Monday series back.  Just a little devotional once a week to get us started well for the new week.

If you want to go to just the Mindful Monday Devotions as they populate, just go HERE.

This week’s Mindful Monday devotional is all about your attitude. Literally 🙂  This points at you and I both, so I’ll let you get right to it 🙂

(thanks to YouVersion for this devotional)

 

It’s About Attitude

Attitude determines so much of our lives. It governs the way we perceive the world and the way the world perceives us. It drives behavior and sets the tone for conversations. Attitude literally affects every area of our lives, yet most of us don’t have a good handle on it.

Attitude is defined as, “the way we think and feel about someone or something that affects our behavior.” Isn’t that so true? The way we feel about ourselves, others, failure, rejection, and success determines so many of our actions. It’s natural to base our actions on our feelings. But even though it “feels” right, having a feeling-based attitude can be destructive.

Feelings leave so much of our attitude up to chance. When circumstances leave us feeling bad, our negative attitude gives way to gossip and complaining. When situations and people leave us feeling good, our positive attitude allows us to find solutions and see opportunity.

God didn’t design our attitude to be based off of feelings but off of Christ. He is constant. His truth is unchanging and ever present. God has called us to a place of freedom, even in our attitude. This place doesn’t ignore our feelings, but doesn’t force us to be ruled by them either.

When we know and understand that God’s truth far outweighs earthly circumstances, we apply it to all areas of our life, including our attitude. His hope and truth becomes the anchor for our attitude instead of our feelings and circumstances.

As you go throughout your day begin to notice what situations affect your attitude. How does the outcome of each situation change your attitude? Can you imagine a life where you are still upset but have an attitude of joy and peace?

“Rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”
–Colossians 2:7 ESV

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”  –Colossians 3:17 ESV

 

This is an old contemporary Christian song, but it often comes to my mind 🙂

 

February 2024 Scripture Writing Plan -Love

February 2024 Scripture writing headerHi everyone!  I hope you’ve had a great January!  We’ve had several days of arctic temperatures and super strong winds that have closed schools about 4 days this month here in North Central Ohio. It’s January though, and the snow adds nitrogen to the soil and waters the ground for an abundant spring.

With all the negative events happening in the world right now, I’m trying to learn to look for the positive and God-blessed things to keep my spirit thankful and trusting Him to get us all through it and to learn to put our faith over our fear.

What better topic to focus on in February than love?  God’s love is so deep and wide, and all consuming for those of us who follow Him. He pours His love into an undeserving world calling everyone to Himself through the loving sacrifice of His own only begotten Son, Jesus Christ Who took our place opening the door for us to be forgiven and take our place with Him in eternity.

I hope you all glean much about the topic of love this month.  God’s love is the only thing that can bring us through all the terrible goings on in the world!

Here I Am, I’m back, Moving Forward

Ponderings of My Predicaments The Great Yellow Jacket Escape

Hi everyone 🙂

I’m back from the craziness of the past year.  I didn’t mean to be gone this long, but you know how that is:  life has a mind of its own 🙂  As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m posting here to fill you all in on my absence.

Here I am

This time last year I had no idea what the Lord had in mind for the rest of the year. I’d gotten my Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship group started back for the new year well. However, just a few months later, I got a call from my landlady’s realtor (her nephew, it turns out).  After living there for eight years (four years with my husband and four years after his death) she decided to sell the house.  We had to move.

March led me to looking high and low for a new house to rent for my son and I in the same school district we had been living in.  I finally gave up and started searching in other school districts.

The search for the house to rent consumed me through March, April, and part of May in addition to packing up a whole house alone without my husband but with all his belongings.  That brought on its own emotional issues…

Then a few friends encouraged me to go to a realty office and see if I could qualify to buy a house.  I really didn’t think it would happen, but partly to satisfy my friends and also to give the Lord a chance to act (should that be His plan) I went to the realty office down the street from my best friend’s house.  I walked in sheepishly and said I’d like to find out if there was any possible way I might qualify to buy a house.

Long story short, I did qualify (a big lesson in letting the Lord have room to do His will here) and after another month of looking for houses to buy and probably driving my realty agent crazy with all my texts and calls,  (and not finding one in my son’s school district), I found the house we now live in and call our own.  It’s in my own childhood school district so I’m more than familiar with the area.

My main concern was my son being in his same school where he knew them and they knew him and his needs.  A huge concern for a child with autism!   However, I wound up being able to keep him at his own school after getting him approved for open enrollment.  That part was great, but it brought a new challenge of its own.

They couldn’t bus him to and from school, so I’d have to drive him.  That’s what I chose to do as it’s his last year of high school. So I drive him to school every day, back home, then back to pick him up again, and back home. Fortunately, it’s nearly all highway so even though it’s on the opposite side of our area, it only takes 15-20 minutes to get there.

Evan graduates High School in May.  He’ll walk with the rest of the typical kids to receive his diploma.  I’m already feeling a combination of pride and bittersweetness (is that a word? 🙂 ).  Proud that Evan has come so so far, and bittersweet that his daddy won’t be there to see our son graduate high school.

To back up a bit, the big move happened (with lots of drama and tumult I will spare you of here) in July.  A few friends, my own church and another area church (which is another story of how the Lord worked big time) both helped us move.  That saved me a lot of money since I didn’t have to hire a moving company. I couldn’t have afforded what I did without the many friends who donated to my Go Fund Me campaign.  I’m so so thankful for that!!

I was sick most of August with a really bad respiratory bug (not Covid) so I didn’t get a whole lot of unpacking done.  I got nearly everything unpacked since then, but definitely not everything organized and put away.  I hope to resolve that over the winter.

September through mid December brought a new health issue that was totally unnecessary to me that waylaid me and the only thing I got done was the absolute essentials at home and taking my son back and forth to school.

A few years ago I developed really bad pain in both of my legs. I was describing it in a facebook post and a dear friend messaged me and told me that had happened to him as well and asked if I was taking a statin medication.  I told him yes, my doctor had just put me on Atorvastatin when it looked like I had borderline high cholesterol.  He said his cardiologist warned him to stop taking it due to his pain as it’s caused a lot of limb pain in some patients. When he stopped, the pain went away.  I stopped taking it and a few weeks later, the pain went away.

Last January (a year ago) I had to see a cardiologist myself and told him about it all and he put me on a very low dose of Pravastatin.  It didn’t bother me at all for months, so I thought it was all ok.

After a few trips to the foot doctor and half a dozen trips for physical therapy,  it dawned on me one day when I was describing my feet pain as “debilitating”.  The same word my friend and I both used to describe the pain.  So I stopped taking the Pravastatin and three weeks later, that pain went away. Apparently, statin drugs are not for me.

The pain was so incredibly bad, it hurt to just stand for a few minutes to change my son.  It would hurt just sitting here watching TV. It really stopped any productivity at all for me till I stopped the Pravastatin.  So the entire fall was really painful for me, so very unproductive. Since x rays and an ultrasound at the foot doctor showed arthritis and a lot of inflammation, I started taking about every supplement I could find for inflammation as well as rubbing organic castor oil on my feet and ankles, and Voltaren: an arthritis gel.  It helped but not enough to manage the kind of pain I was in.

I’m feeling so much better now (aside from bone-on-bone knees). I’m trying to move forward emotionally now that the literal moving has happened.  Especially from December.  My husband and I got married December 1st, his birthday was Christmas Day, then the holidays themselves.  A new living situation without him.

This widow thing is not for the faint of heart, and my heart has been really faint this year.  But the Lord has been so good and has sustained us in so many ways.  I’m working at adjusting my attitude a bit.

Now for me:  Here I Am.  Take me as I am 🙂 For the next chapter of my life, Lord:  here I am. Lead me onward.

January 2024 Scripture Writing Plan -A Fresh Start

Hello everyone 🙂

As promised, this is a few days late, but here is the first of hopefully many scripture writing plans to come for 2024.  Much has happened since my last post and I plan to writing a whole post about it, so for now, enjoy your January 2024 scripture writing plan!

Scripture Writing Plans on Hold Temporarily

Pausing Temporarily

Hello everyone 🙂  I’ve so missed compiling the scripture writing plans every month for you all!

Sadly, it couldn’t be helped and I have to put them on hold just temporarily.

My landlady has decided to sell the house we’ve been living in for nearly eight years now, so I’m in panic mode trying to pack a whole house all by myself and trying to raise the money for moving expenses before I can even find a new house to move to.

Fortunately I don’t have a move out date YET (I stalk the mailbox every day while holding my breath 🙂 )  What’s happened is that my landlady lives over an hour from us and I’ve never even met her face to face.  We’ve texted when the need arises, but as far as renting the house to us in the first place, she’s worked through her realtor.  That’s how she’s working on taking the house back to sell too.

Her realtor called me few weeks ago and said that she wanted to sell the house.  He came over and took measurements (which I thought was odd given that they should have them on file).  I asked him about that and he just kind of moved on to a new question or statement…

Anyway…my son and I have to move.  My son just turned 20 (hard to believe that!!!) but has autism and is non-verbal.  We’re both disabled. Evan due to his autism and me for several things most notably spinal stenosis with degenerative disc syndrome and arthritis in my back and knees. Add to that the fact that I recently suffered a fractured vertebrae (L1) while trying to pull a couch out of our garage to give away and clear the garage out of my husband’s hoarding collection. That happened in November and I had back surgery for that this past December.

At any rate…I have to put the scripture writing plans on hold just until we get moved and settled.  Please don’t give up on me and please check back.  I’ll be sending out a post with an update once things have calmed down (and please dear Jesus, let them calm down!!) 🙂

I’m trying to raise the funds to pay for movers and the deposit wherever it is we wind up moving to.  Until the funds are found/raised, etc. I’m just packing away.  I had to take this week off a lot of packing because my son is on spring break and I cant’ spend a lot of time in another floor of the house with him home.

I’ve reluctantly (humbly…) set up a Go Fund Me campaign to try to get enough for our move.  If you feel led to help us out, you can click here to go to that page:

February 2023 Scripture Writing Plan -You Are Enough

February 2023 scripture writing plan header

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. Here in north central Ohio we have some icing going on out there. Today I’ve been seeking the Lord about the February Scripture Writing Plan.  I think He is putting on my heart, “You are enough” as I’ve been dealing with this issue myself.

I’m still laying a little low trying to not overdo it (since my back surgery in December).I’m allowed to lift up to 20 pounds now till April when I hope I’ll not have any more restrictions.  That will be good timing so I can be active again in the Spring and Summer and get more done around here.

So…this month the theme is, “You are enough”.  It’s a mantra I try to keep in mind for myself.  I really am dealing with a lot of feelings of unworthiness currently.  Also others finding me less than acceptable.

I have to confess the sin of envy too, I suppose.  I see other women who are in Godly relationships (I’m missing my husband who passed three years ago), who are fit and attractive.

I’m knocking on the door of a major age milestone and I’m really not dealing with it well.  My autistic son will be 20 in March and that’s always difficult.  Being a widow is bad enough, but add the autism mom, and the age milestone and it’s a real recipe for envy and it’s evil cousin named, “I’m not worthy”.

I know in my heart it’s all foolishness and that it’s God’s acceptance I’m really seeking, and I do, but I let the worries of what others think of me beat me up.  But I am actively battling it, and I thought I would share the scripture passages I’ve been reading as comfort for the February scripture writing plan.

February is the month of love, right?  I really am trying to seek just God’s love and approval.   It’s a hard day for those of us who are widows, isn’t it ladies?  And you widowers as well, of course.

So… I thought this was the perfect month to allow God’s Word to minister to us to comfort us and warm our hearts as He tells us how much He loves us and values us.  I may do a “ponderings of my predicaments” post about that.  I posted a vent on Facebook that was pretty long and I’ve gotten a lot of really sweet feedback.

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!

November 2022 Scripture Writing Plan -Thankfulness

November 2022 scripture writing plan header

Hello friends!

I hope you are all well and having a great fall season!

I’ve been super busy de-hoarding our downstairs and now our garage.  As some of you may remember, I lost my husband three years ago (boy it sure doesn’t feel like that long) and he was quite the hoarder.  I’m telling ya, our two car garage was filled right to both doors with boxes and whatnot. When I began you couldn’t even step one foot in the door of either bay because a box would smack you in the face.

I’m bound and determined to get the whole thing finished before the colder weather sets in.  I’m in north central Ohio, and it’s usually starting to snow by Thanksgiving.  It’s a LOT of work and I’m just about on a first-name basis with the workers at the thrift store I’m donating to. I’m on my sixth van full right now.  Also, I hope my garbage person still likes me after the pile I left him/her last week and this week!  But it feels so good to get this under control!  It took me three years since his death to be able to emotionally attack this, but the time is finally now.

I’m hitting moments of sentimentality I’m fighting against and I’ve found that if I come upon pictures, mementos, etc., I put them all in a box to go through later so I can get some boxes gone through and moved out of the garage.

I’m trying to remember when I see something that had belonged to my husband and I start to grieve losing him, I try to be thankful for the 20 years we had together (2 years dating, 18 years married) .

Speaking of thankfulness, as I do every November, I’m offering you the theme of Thankfulness for our November scripture writing plan.  Use it to draw nearer to the Lord and be mindful of all He’s done and continues to do for us!

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
