Psalm 139 (New International Version)


1 O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. 5 You hem me in–behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. 19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men! 20 They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you? 22 I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Tomorrow is coming quickly.. I am so excited.. and sort of petrified I have forgotten a million things! I am praying the wonderful parents involved in the co-op with me will extend GRACE in abundant measure as we move forward with this new year.

I am finalizing all the class wish lists piles and will have the children help load the car as soon as it gets back from the store. I may find thirst more things undone but am planning on remembering my promise to put my family first so will stop at 8:30 p.m. and read to my family.

Anyone reading this please pray for our day tomorrow!

thank you!

Birthday Party

We had a fun day today with a birthday party for my 4 year old niece Destiny. Fairy themed:


Even our Lilly got in on the act. This photo was taken by a 5 year old. He’s destined to be a good photographer don’t you think?

Been blessed

with some apples. The children and I went out and picked them from a gentleman’s tree after we answered a craigslist ad.  I do  not care for raw apples but the children ate about three each while picking and declared them tasty and juicy. I have the few falls and ones that dropped as they were picking in a separate bag so will make some applesauce later today.
