I hope you all are having an amazing holiday season!
This is a difficult one for my son and I, being the first since losing my husband, but God has been SO amazingly good and faithful to us thorugh it all. I’m so thankful for friends and family for their love and support. I’m very thankful also for a few churches and organizations that rallied around us and got Evan a huge bounty of Christmas gifts! What a true blessing.
I had my share of emotional breakdowns, and my son’s IEP meeting made me realize he is affected by his daddy’s death more than I’d thought. He’s really smart and is doing great in school ,but there are a few areas he usually does great in that have decreased a bit. I so wish he could talk to tell me what he’s thinking and feeling. But he gets his point across in the immediate things and he clings to me and is so loving. He’s the greatest blessing in my life second only to our Savior, Jesus.
I really tried to focus on the true meaning for why we have Christmas at all. It’s all about Him! I’ll post more about what’s happening in a future post under my Ponderings of My Predicaments category. I’m really planning on being a lot more present with my blogging and Facebook groups than I have been since all the tragedy arose.
We are just about in a brand new year, and I don’t know about you, but I am MORE than looking forward to kissing 2019 goodbye and leaving it in the dust.
I just created our scripture writing plan for January, and it’s all about how to get a fresh start done right!
I’m so thankful that so many of you are enjoying and spiritually benefiting from these monthly scripture writing plans! I love putting them together for you knowing that you find them useful and uplifting! Use these passages to write out the scriptures and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing –>
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! –>
