This and That

It’s been a little while since you have heard from me.  I didn’t intend to take a break, but the blog had to take a back burner as things have been piling up. I’m not sure why it seems I am unusually busy this spring.  I usually have my spring cleaning done by now, but I have barely started.  😮  It will probably be summer cleaning this year!


This week is a big holiday week in Japan called ‘Golden Week.’  We like to get away for a few days during this time. Our usual destination is my husband’s parents’ house.  My MIL is currently in the states, but we decided to come anyway and spend time with my FIL.  It has been nice to get away and escape the busyness of the city. They live in the country.  I thoroughly enjoyed my walk this morning along country roads and the river lined with trees.

Since my MIL isn’t here to visit with, I’ve been able to do some reading, studying and writing.  These are all things that I haven’t had enough time for in recent weeks.  I’m thankful that the Lord has given me this time to come away from my normal routine.  I didn’t realize how much I needed it.  If I had stayed home, I probably would have started that spring cleaning…


We just started a new Bible study at our church using Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth’s Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free.  We just finished The Renewing of the Mind Project and felt that this would be a great study to do next because we can incorporate a lot of what we are learning about renewing our minds with the Lies Women Believe study.  One of the ladies discovered that the older version of Lies Women Believe has been translated into Japanese.  That is an added bonus!!

A moment of transparency here…I’m behind in my Bible memory projects.  I’ve had a couple of comments recently from ladies that said my posts on Bible memory spurred them on in this vital area. Those comments have helped me to not give up when it would be so easy to do.  It’s ok to be behind.  Something is better than nothing.


What are you working on?  Is there a Bible study that is helping you? Are you working on a Bible memory project?  I’d love to hear from you!

until the next time…
