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 (hmm, linkup isn’t working this month!) 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 May!
May has been a plethora of emotion! Up’s and down’s and all-around – we are ready for a new month!
Did you know a mouse nest inside the engine of your car can leave you stranded on the highway? Hubs learned that in May!
It was affirmed that God gives the desires of hearts to those who honor Him. Hannah said, “Prom was everything I hoped and dreamed it would be.”
This year I tracked and learned that Eastern Phoebes hatch and fledge in a short 13-day span and they leave enough doo and poo to fill a bucket. Gross.
I learned (again) to pray BIG prayers to our BIG God. You know what my Papa God did? He sold a few cattle and gifted our Hannah with an external scholarship for her college education. I have not stopped doing the happy hallelujah dance – not sure I could quiet these size ten’s from doing the shuffle!!!
I learned that stuff still happens even when you’re doing everything right! And, that PPP’s are still part of my personality and I hate it! (Pathetic Pity Parties)
I didn’t need to learn this but I love being reminded how crazy I am about this boy. How can Simon be 12 already?
I continue to learn how grateful I am to live in a secure home in a free country and to be healthy and strong enough to take care of it!
Aren’t photos fun? I adore seeing pictures of others lives and hope you enjoyed mine. I did learn several other things, which I’ll list here:
- We need more Nehemiah’s and Ezra’s in our world and churches today. I read these books in the Old Testament with great fervor and, you know how you feel sad when you finish a good book? Yes. That.
- That spiritual giftings change over the years. I re-took a Spiritual Gifts test and the results were so different than one I had taken years ago. You can take it here.
- I learned that I am an ISTJ on the Briggs-Meyers scale. I must say the results weren’t too shocking! You can take that test here.
- Did you know that most-likely the king mentioned in the book of Nehemiah is Queen Esther’s son? Isn’t that the most interesting thought?
I continue to learn that I’m never too old to learn something new.
What did you learn in May?
