Monday’s Musings #154 & A Little Peek

Today I thought it would be fun to share a little peek into my life. So, here we go:

Books I’m reading: “Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” by Eric Metaxas. I started this book last year but put it aside. I’m so excited to be digging in once again. If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it. I’m about halfway through at this time. I am also making my way through “Absolute Surrender” by Andrew Murray. Love! Nothing like the classics.

My Devotionals: “Devotions For A Healthier You: Feeding Mind, Body and Soul” by Katie Farrell. This book I am reading alongside my regimen to be healthy. Good spiritual encouragement in this book. I’m enjoying it. I am also reading “100 Days of Blessings: Devotions for Wives and Mothers” by Nancy Campbell. This one I read sporadically. It’s good stuff when I do pick it up.

Bible Study: The Daily Walk Bible. It’s a read through the Bible in a year study. I’ve enjoyed it but will be stepping away from it to do a 30 day study on Isaiah 53 which is one of my favorite chapters in Isaiah. This will be my personal Lenten study.

Exercise regimen: I love walking/interval jogging outside. I’ve braved some chilly weather this season to do this and loved it. I do Leslie Sansone videos when I stay home along with weights/strength training. I try to workout four to five times a week.

Magazines I enjoy: Food Network, Fitness, Cooking Light, Eating Well and Home Beautiful.

Projects I’m working on: At this time, my spare time is spent editing maternity photos. I also have a crochet blanket, redwork squares and a scrapbook in progress but on the back burner until the editing is done.

Songs on my iPod:Beautiful Day” and “Hold Me” by Jamie Grace. “Move” by Mercy Me. “We Believe” By JJ Weeks Band. “Stop This Train” By John Mayer. “How Great Thou Art” By Carrie Underwood (she can sing!). “Happy” By Pharrell Williams. Phantom of the Opera soundtrack. My son’s CD. I usually keep my iPod with me for when I go walking or to listen to while sitting at Starbucks working.

Lent study: Reading “5o Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die” by John Piper with the family in the evening. Husband is leading this.

Favorite Starbucks drink: At this time its a tall, decaf, non-fat tiramisu latte. Yummy!

Snacks I have with me: It’s usually raw almonds, a KIND bar or a Think Thin bar.

Favorite breakfast: An egg or oatmeal.

My favorite subject to teach in our home school: Well, that would be history and photography. Our daughter is taking a college photography course this semester at home and likes it. Of course, I’m tickled pink she does.

Now you know me a little better. Do we have anything in common? If so, tell me what in the comments. Now let’s get to our sharing. *I put links to the books I listed and they are affiliate links.

Monday’s Musings #152 & Being Busy

Us | What Joy Is Mine

(Valentine’s Day has come and gone but here’s a picture of my Love and I last year at the beach. Just a glimpse of us.)

I have had a full week this past week. It’s been a good busy but busy nonetheless. So, needless to say, I have no post today. Sometimes it is just that way and I am fine with it. It’s called grace. And I hope you give yourself grace when life gets a bit busy and it just seems like you can stay on top of your schedule. Life is just like that from time to time. This week will a bit less busy for me and I’m looking forward to that. Well, let’s get to the party. I am so grateful you visit and share your best posts! Thank you for the encouragement.
