A Look Ahead (October 2008)

I've been very busy lately and I have not had the time to blog as often as I would like too. I've miss blogging so much. In the coming months I know it will only get busier but I will try to continue to blog as often as I can.
I have so much planned for this blog. My life has been changing so fast lately but it all for the better. God is molding me and I am loving the person that I am becoming. Keep me and my family in you prayers I just know that there are a lot of good things about to happen for us.
Well can you believe it is is October already. We are currently still on track with schooling this year and that is rare for us.
Here is how the month of October will look for us.

Diligence - working hard to accomplish a task

Memory Verse - Proverbs 22:29 "Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings..."
We will re-read the story of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane
