Week 10 of 52
9) Practice 12 spiritual disciplines.
“If it is coincidence, I sure have a lot more coincidences when I pray than when I don’t.” Unknown man quoted by Don Whitney in Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, p.96.
Bible reading, meditation and prayer are the “holy trinity” of a Christian’s life. They mark a person who believes there is more to life than 80 years on earth. I disciplined myself to pray this week as I disciplined myself to daily walk. I don’t get “feels” off prayer, usually. Prayer is simply a way I prove I believe to myself. I found it a relief to chat with God about daily annoyances and worries. And, there were little answers/”coincidences” as well.
8) Complete 12 credits toward MDiv.
My second class this semester starts this week. It is Church History to the Modern Age – squeal!
7) Connect with one person a week.
Check! I had lunch with an long-time friend, and got to party with another.
6) Complete writing a 12-week Bible study.
I worked on Week 4.
5) Learn how to needle felt and create 25 sculptures.
Hagar is complete. I’m not happy with her lips, but the wool won’t take more felting.
The donkey is in progress, and I started on a Faun.
4) Complete 12 house/yard projects.
Stephen worked on the drawers and doors of the linen closet. It rained almost all day every day last week. I cleaned out the side flower garden in the drizzle on Saturday, and started tomato seeds. With the new seed heat mat I purchased as my “splurge” garden item this year, the seeds germinated in 4 DAYS!
3) Move at least 15 minutes a day.
2) Fix my teeth.
One of the buttons came off a few days ago. I’ll have to head back in to get it put on again. Its the same one I keep having trouble with.
1) Hike to 12 new places.
January: Hike to Twin Falls.
