August’s Amazing Activities has me joining Heather Gerwing Share Four Somethings in 2022. Share Four Somethings has four categories for our reflection: something loved, something gleaned, something braved (or saved), and something achieved.
August’s Amazing Activities – Something Loved
My husband was given the opportunity to attend the national FEMA conference for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) which is a volunteer program where individuals prepare to help in a disaster, such as a tornado. I tagged along to enjoy a little time of renewal at the Galveston beach. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony basking in the sunrise and sunset with the Lover of my soul, Jesus. And though my husband was in training during the day, we were able to spend some quality time in the evening and celebrate our upcoming 35th Anniversary.
My time in Galveston turned into a writer’s retreat, and I was able to do research for an upcoming blog series and I was able to do research for an upcoming Bible study. Although I had hoped to accomplish a lot more writing during the week, I am appreciative for the progress made.
And thankfully, I was able to rest. I didn’t realize how much I needed downtime. I loved my little “getaway” time with Jesus and my husband.
August’s Amazing Activities – Something Gleaned
I continued building upon my CERT training in July by taking a CPR course in August. The teacher was terrific! She taught us CPR on adults, small children, and babies. I felt a little intimidated before attending the class, but I left with confidence. I am so grateful for the training!
August’s Amazing Activities – Something Braved
We contracted to have our back porch remodeled in November 2021. The contractor framed-out the porch in February, but the windows were delayed until the end of July, so we have “braved” several months of a partially remodeled patio. In the beginning it was amusing how we “stepped” through the framed door and went around the framed windows even though all were equal on the cement. Even our little yorkie would run around and go through the framed door, although I must admit, towards the end, we all started taking a short cut “straight-through” the framed windows.
Thankfully the windows have been installed and look fabulous. We are appreciative for a little more space.
August’s Amazing Activities – Something Achieved
My Draw Near: 30-Days to Know God Better Bible study was published this month on Amazon. I’m so grateful!
Birthing a book does entail more than one might think, and just as a mom is so grateful when a real baby comes forth, likewise a writer is thankful when their book comes forth. It truly is a labor of love!
If you desire to know more about Draw Near:
I am excited that you desire to draw near to God. This Bible study is for everyone who seeks to know God, desires to learn His nature, and longs to respond to Him.
This 30-Day Bible Study can be used for 30 consecutive days in a month, or it can be used intermittently as your schedule allows. We will explore who God is to us by looking at 30 characteristics of God.
The choice to know God is ours. To know the heart of God requires investment of our time, heart, and a willingness to seek Him. When we hunger after the Living God and draw near to Him, He is faithful to draw near to us, and to reveal Himself to us.
This Bible study guide is easy to use:
- 30-Days of Study – can be consecutive or intermittent to fit your schedule.
- For Christians – from all backgrounds and denominations.
- Answer the hunger of your heart – to know God more – God the Father, God the Son – Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit.
- Each day includes: a moment to prepare your heart, God’s insights, keys to understanding, a prayer, space to take personal notes, and take away action points.
The Lord Bless You
Thank you for joining me in Share Four Somethings for August’s Amazing Activities. I look forward to hearing all you have loved, gleaned, braved (or saved), and achieved in the month of August – either in your post or in the comments below.
My prayer is for the Lord to bless you in your journey through life.
Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually]. ~3 John 1:2 AMP
