Marriage Monday


I am excited about this new meme, Marriage Monday,  created by Chrysalis seems  this  appears  every first and third Monday and this week  is  something a bit new and different.

Today, let's get re-acquainted as women—without spilling any ink about our marriages. This week, boys are not allowed!

The prompts listed below are designed to help us to get to know you as a unique daughter of God. Please complete the sentences (as I have), post your piece on your blog, and then come back here to link up.

Think of your post as a quick pencil sketch of your current life. The faster you write it the better!

I want….. develop to my full potential as a daughter of the King

I have….. to make the most of each new day

I wish….. I had more boldness in the area of sharing the Good News with people I know who need the gospel in their lives

I hate….. deceitfulness

I miss….. our daughter and son-in-law

I fear….. the prospect of eventually having to live alone if anything were to happen to my husband

I am not….. willing to allow Satan’s lies to hurt me—or others.

I believe…..Psalm 42 is my very favorite passage of scripture and and it sets the purpose in my life

I dance….. praise dances to my Lord in my spirit

I sing….. in our senior choir at church and just anytime I hear a favored song

I cry….. hen I am completely inundated with trials or stressful circumstances beyond my control and ability to overcome

I don’t always….. make wise eating choices

I fight….. for the Truth.

I write…..edify and encourage others.

  3. So pleased to meet you, Schotzy! I have perused your blog a bit and you seem to be a happy and fulfilled woman.

    You are blessed to have the gift of music--sadly, a strength I lack.

    My mother was a redhead and of Scottish ancestry... some day I'll visit Scotland!
