A Young Maiden's Daybook Entry #2!

My dear new friend from the blog world, Alexandra, began this fun meme, and has chosen that those who participate do so on Mondays(if at all possible!). So, from now on, that's when I'll be posting mine! :) Enjoy(and please participate!!) Today is… Monday, February 2nd, 2009 (wow-February already!!)

Outside my window… the sun is shining brightly.

I am thinking… that I'm glad Alexandra came up with this meme! :)

I am thankful for… the amazing snow we had earlier today! Living in southern Tennessee, we don't get snow very much at all, but today for a while we had a beautiful, consistent snow fall. It didn't stick to the ground, but it was beautiful to watch the snowglobe scene unside our windows! :) Thank you for Your mercy, Lord!

I am wearing… a cream color sweater with a blue and cream long peasant-style, tiered skirt

I am reading… many books at once, of course. ;) They include: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, Beloved Bride: The Letters of Stonewall Jackson to His Wife by Bill Potter, God and Government Vol. 3 by Gary DeMar, Jeff McLean: His Courtship(for the second time!) by Mr. and Mrs. Stephen B. Castleberry, Marriage to a Difficult Man: The Uncommon Union of Jonathan and Sarah Edwards by Elisabeth Dodds, Systematic Theology by Robert Duncan Culver(I'm studying this with Daddy), and The Potter's Freedom: A Defense of the Reformation and a Rebuttal of Norman Geisler's Chosen But Free by James White. As for what books I'm reading in the Bible: Ephesians and Psalms(among other various passages).

I am creating… this blog post :) and, with God's guidance, I'm continuing to work on my 2009 Mission Statement for this blog!

One of my favorite things… little puppies!

For education this week… government/history, theology, writing and literature, consumer math, Apologia chemistry

A keeper at home skill I am using/learning… one of my favorite and baking!! :)

A spiritual lesson I’m learning… the huge importance of diligently studying God's Word every day.

A godly character trait I plan to work on… being more discreet and quiet!

Scripture I am memorizing… Proverbs 31:10-31

I am praying for… Various family and church requests, and that the Lord would make me into true salt and light in this dark, lost world

For the rest of the week… I plan to be writing for this blog, Lord willing. I have school, will babysit my sweet brother Andrew while Mama's at her gastroenterologist appointment on Wednesday, and I will(Lord willing) be responding to the numerous blog comments and e-mails that I haven't gotten around to yet, etc. Busy, busy, busy!! :)

A picture I’d like to share… is this :

I love that beautiful garden area, and that dress is delightfully feminine and so, so pretty!

  1. Dear Rebekah,

    This is so nice to have you posting more. I might do the meme next week.

    You use Apologia? I use it too and I love it. I am doing biology now and I think it is so interesting. I actually have a blog where I (try to) tell about what I learn.

    I am looking forward to reading the mission statement.


  2. Oh so it was you! :D I saw the picture last week and then saved it to my computer and I was planing on linking back to your blog saying that this is where I found the picture but when I come back to write the post I couldn't remeber what blog I had seen it on! lol!

    Oh, and I love reading your blog! In fact I just added you to my feed reader.
    Love in Christ,

  3. I have really enjoyed reading your blog! I don't know if you do these things or not, but if you want to, I tagged you for a photo tag.
    In Christ Alone,
