Book of the Bible
I am now reading my way through the Bible chronologically and am finishing up Numbers preparing to head into Deuteronomy and Joshua.

Devotional I'm Using
Streams in the Desert by Jim Reimann and Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

In my Ears
I recently created a collection of songs on my iPod in a playlist that I have titled "darkness praise."

It is a group of songs that I listen to when the moments in my day are feeling quite dark.  I plan to share this list with you in the coming days.

Items of note
Track started this week.  Our son took 1st place in the high jump last year at district.  We know that things may be quite different this year now that we are competing at the high school level.  Regardless, we're just ready to get it going again.

This is the season of birthday's around here.  All three males in our house celebrate within 2 1/2 weeks of each other.  Cake anyone?

What I’m looking forward to next month
Spring.  It will come, right?  We currently have snow on the ground and more fell today.  To accompany that it has been just downright cold.  Yes, spring will be a very welcomed sight around here!

It's time to get these children out of this house.  It's time to get me out of this house.

In my home
I had my first tulips for the season in a vase and in my home, never mind the snow outside.

I had them laying between the front seats of the van when I picked my children up.  My son asked, "What are the flowers for?"  I replied, "Your dad bought them for me.  He just doesn't know it yet."

We both smiled as did my husband when I later relayed the conversation to him.

I'm thinking he's probably wanting to buy me some more soon.  *grin*

Now it's your turn! What are YOU into this month? Chat away in the conversation below or borrow this for inspiration on your own blog.

Inspired by Tiffini over @ The House of Belonging


  1. What a great post. Its so nice to hear how you are doing, and what you are up too. How did you like the book Made to Crave? That is on my wish list to read. I have the devotional on my e-reader(it was free on amazon). IT looks like a really good book.
    Good luck with track, and the birthdays. We have a birthday this month as well, for my husband.
    I hope you have a great day!

  2. Carey: I read through "Made to Crave" in 2 days. Now I am going to go back and review all my highlighting taking it into the depths of my heart even deeper.

    THANKS for the tip about the devotional being free for the e-reader on Amazon! I went and already downloaded it to mine. YEAH!

  3. thanks so much for adding me to your blog list! And also, for your kind comment today. I so appreciate it! And you will really enjoy Wayne Cordeiro's book. I've only made it through half, but what I read was great!

  4. Loved this little update of your life.

    Rachel Olsen's book is good. I read it last month I think.

  5. I always enjoy these kinds of posts. They are like little visits over the kitchen table. It all sounds wonderful Donnetta - especially the tulips. A girl can't have too many flowers!

  6. Dear one - what did you think of the Stormie Omartian book? I hope it was ample reward for slogging through my paper! :-)


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
