Good morning, Ladies, on the beautiful rainy cool day. I love rainy season here in the tropics. The air is not so sweltering or so muggy. A cool breeze is blowing.

I have coined Thursday’s updates as “Thirsty Thursdays”: Am I thirsty for God’s word? Do I long to have it hid away in my heart? In 2 Corinthians 3:3 it says “…written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of  stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.”  Is God’s Word written on my heart? Thursdays are my days to update on how my Bible Memory is going. I am striving to memorize Psalms 119. I have left it rest for several months. (or rather I have just neglected it) But now it is time to resume it and get my mind in gear again.

I am ready to begin segment 3, titled GIMEL, which starts with verse 17. I am memorizing it in the King James Version.

After a long silence, filled with lots of noise and activity, I am back to post. When I am writing I tend to be more purposeful. I tend to analyze what I am doing with my life and how to be purposeful and actively striving to be diligent in all areas.
Today in an effort to give diligence in all areas, I am going to houseclean a few closets. We will be moving the end of this year and it is a move across the ocean with only an airplane to carry what we move. So we need to downsize greatly and prioritize what we want to take.
I will be going through the children’s clothes and getting rid of the stuff that is too small and to ugly to wear anymore.
My List for Today:
Breakfast dishes
Quiet time 
C’s closet
H’s dresser
A’s dresser
Talk to G about leaf pile
Finish wash from yesterday
Water mess

Tomorrow I will be back to talk a little about where I am with memorizing Psalm 119.
