“D” is for

Psalm 37 4

Today is day 4 of the Ultimate Blog challenge and the Blogging A to Z Challenge.  Today’s letter is “D”.

“D” is for Dennis, who is my fantastic husband.  He is my soul mate.  He truly is the love of my life.

“D” is for daring.  With three sons and one daughter in our home, there is a never a dull moment.  They constantly perform daring stunts and feats.

“D” is for darling daughter.  My youngest child is my only girl and she truly is a darling daughter.  I love watching her grow into the young woman she will become.

“D” is for disciples.  Our family strives to be disciples of Christ.  We are a work in progress, but I pray for God to lead, guide and direct our paths.

“D” is for delight as in Psalm 37:4 as shown above.

“D” is also for dreams – the dreams I have for our children and their futures.  I also have dreams for my husband and me as well.

So these are some of the things that come to mind when I hear the letter “D”  What do you think of when you hear the letter “D”?  I look forward to hearing from you.

“C” is for ……

Psalm 51 10

Today is day 3 of the “Blogging A to Z” challenge, NaBloPoMo Challenge for April,  and the Ultimate Blog Challenge.  So today, “C” stands first for Christian Homeschooling materials.  We are blessed to have an abundance of Christian Homeschooling suppliers for materials.  One of my favorite books for finding Homeschooling materials is , 102 Top Picks For Homeschool Curriculum by Cathy Duffy.  This is a wonderful resource for finding material.  She does a wonderful job of leading the readers through developing a philosophy of education,  determining teaching styles and the children’s learning styles before going into various homeschooling materials.  She even includes a detailed chart saying what teaching and learning styles each item tends to work best with that item.  She does an excellent job with this.  I was blessed to be introduced to this book shortly after beginning our homeschooling journey.

“C” is also for crocheting.  One of the first things I learned from the women in my husband’s family was how to crochet.  Through the years, I have made a number of blankets.  These blankets have been for my immediate family as well as gifts for friends or other family members.  I enjoy crocheting as a way of relaxing.

“C” is also for #Create, one of the words I have chosen for the year.  My Bible verse to go along with this is the one that is at the beginning of this post.  I truly want God to create in me a “clean heart”

So these are some things that come to mind for the letter “C” for me.  What comes to mind for you?
