Lately, my sister came out to Portland for a visit. We trekked (drove) up to the snow on Mt. Hood. It was like 8 degrees. Lisa and I opted to hang out INDOORS and do some reading while Christopher and Anthony did some tubing.
Lately, I have been listening to the book So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore on audio CD. She is the narrator and hearing her read her own writing is powerful. This is my second time through... and it is amazing to look back to last year and see how much I have changed. It might not be noticeable on the outside, but I am a much more secure person on the inside. Worth the read!
Lately, I have been helping a friend with her ministry. I enjoy being "Jonathan" to those who are called to be "David" if you know what I mean. I am more of a support member and definitely not the visionary.
Lately, our pastor has encouraged us to read through one chapter of the Bible a day. We are going to read through the gospels 4 times this year. I love thinking how much more familiar I will be with the gospels by the end of this year. I think I will choose to read it in 4 different versions. I chose the Message version first. Any suggestions for the next three times?
Lately, I purchased some red glass spray paint (with 40% off coupon at Michael's) after seeing this. And LOVE IT! Actually went back (with 50% off coupon) and bought the mirror finish, too. Maybe I'll have to try and do a tutorial. And I will totally be using these on clear glass bulbs for my Christmas tree. (Or trees, as the case may be!)
Lately, I have been planning a little trip to Monterey and Carmel, California. Just me and Anthony. A little romantic weekend over Anthony's birthday. (I am torn about not taking Christopher... mostly because I'll miss him. But he'll be having the time of his life with his Nana... and will be thrilled to be able to text us using his iPod touch.)
Lately, Starbucks has my favorite coffee beans! Casi Cielo... which means almost heaven. YUM.
What have you been up to as of late?
For clarification... Yes, my sis is wearing her ILG hat. She is wearing a purchased scarf that was given to her for Christmas. Isn't it beautiful?
And, yes, I am wearing my ILG hat hidden under my hood. My scarf was actually a $5 score at Old Navy. I was torn about buying it because I thought people would think I had made it...but I could never make such a scarf for just $5... and it matches perfectly... and I got the matching gloves which even have a cable on them.
