Emily Freeman, a fellow North Carolina sister, writes over at Chatting in the Sky, (honestly) one of my favorite blogs and offers the “what I learned” linkup each month. I enjoy doing this because it causes me to reflect on the month and think on things I would normally put in the to be deleted file of my brain. Even if you don’t blog or journal, it is a fun list to make. For those of you who kindly comment, please share at least one thing you learned in April!
In addition, I learned:
It is never too late, nor is someone ever too old, to complete a dream! I read the most delightfully true story about Emma Gatewood, the first woman to do a complete hike-through of the Appalachian Trail at 67-years young, in 1955. Her story is an inspiration and can be read for free as a Kindle Unlimited! Check it out here.
One cannot quickly go into a Hobby Lobby for ONE item. My daughter and I were going to run in for one jewelry-making purchase. 75 minutes and $40 later we exited the store!
Although I can almost not believe I am saying this…I much prefer reading on my Kindle than holding a book in my hands. Books are just so heavy! LOL!
Every spring I get this little fearful thing going on in my brain that I won’t be able to keep up with the yardwork. Doubt! Be gone! I can and I will.
God is really into numbers. You’ve heard that He isn’t, right? Well, He is. Just read Ezra 2.
We live in a relatively small, connected world. An earthquake can ravish a city in a country over 7,900 miles away and I have friends to pray for in that foreign place. Amazing.
In the writing world, I am blessed to be a part of LifeNotes Cafe as a weekly blogger; and, to be included in the online Granola Bar Devotional!
And, one thing I learn over and over, every single month, by just observing and listening, All that glitters isn’t gold!
What did you learn in April?
