~Monday Meanderings~...

~Memory Verse: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23 (Revisiting this one this week!)

~Bible Study- Reading out of my Busy Mom's Bible (The verses and study on "Your Emotions")

~Husband Encouragement:

*Work on the Love Dare, again.

*Pick up something nice for him when I go shopping this week just to say "I am thinking of you"

*Purchasing the parts he needs for various things he needs to work on around the house. As he works such long hours, he has absolutely NO time to do this..so, I need to take that burden for him. Also, need to clean his vehicle out for him.
