New Project

Bernice has a new project just started  here. It is a bit different this time and is a study on Identity in Ephesians, with journalling and art journalling to go along with it. It lasts for four weeks.

I am really looking forward to it and do intend to actually do this one along with everyone else. Do go over to the blog and check it out.

Water, water

My word for the year got tested last week when we had a flood, due to a joint failing in the mains pipe, the water poured out into the lower ground floor, which has the study and my craft area. There was about an inch of water over the whole floor! When I chose the word Strengthen I did not really think that we would have to strengthen pipes!

The pile of 12x12 papers which are totally water damaged - around 250 sheets, I counted them!!

The worst thing is the damage to the books, the pile on the floor are the water damaged ones. Of course the water managed to miss the smaller paperbacks and headed straight for the expensive hardbacks!

The room is now empty and we have around 30 boxes of books in another room awaiting the floor to dry and be replaced. To add to it all  there is a leak in the ceiling in the same room which potentially will need the flat roof redone!!!

Maybe I should have chosen a different word!

One Little Word

For several years now I have joined in with the idea of One Little Word. You can find details about this at Ali Edwards' blog

My words in previous years have been Positive, Calm, Focus, Achieve, Be, Embrace. I found it quite difficult this year to choose a word. I wanted to build on previous words and also be positive. I have eventually chosen the word STRENGTHEN.

I feel that this will help me to build on what I have learned recently about stress management and keeping better routines going, also strengthening my new life here in Edinburgh. I would also like to Strengthen my quiet times with God, and what I have been learning and experiencing in my prayer course. Craft wise I would like to Strengthen my interest and commitment to actually doing some craft work. Healthwise I would like to Strengthen my fitness and healthy living.

I think this will be my Bible verse for the year "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Phillipians 4:13.

I have done something different this year and have signed up for Ali Edwards One Little Word, so that I can keep my word more visible this year.

Other projects I have signed up for are 52 Weeks of Psalms and Journal 52. both free classes.

Have you chosen a word for the year? What projects have you signed up for?
