This post is one week late because…well…I may have injured my arm last weekend. I am praising God it is not broken but it is deeply bruised! So instead of tapping out a long post with my left hand I decided to wait until today.
I had the idea to start something new. At the end of each month I will give a few highlights or major things that God has been teaching me. I have seen something similar on a few of my favorite blogs and I thought I would give it a try! Here are my highlights for the month of October:
Fall Colors – This October has been the most beautiful fall I have seen in years! The myriad of yellows, oranges, and reds have been breath-taking!
Chai Tea – I tried chai tea for my first time this year and it is a new favorite! I usually drink coffee but I thought I would try something new. I would recommend it if you like cinnamon!
Keith and Kristyn Getty – I was recently introduced to their songs and I have not stopped listening to them since! They write a lot of revised hymns and I found a few new favorites.
My Birthday – Birthdays are a great time to reflect on how God works in our lives. We may not always see it in the moment, but looking back we can see God’s hand in every circumstance.
Using my Left Hand – For the past week, I have done most things with my left hand (including writing). It has been challenging, but it has taught me not to take the simple things for granted. We have been blessed with many gifts- I encourage you to take some time to thank God for the small things in life.
Journaling – About a year ago, I started journaling consistently. It has been a blessing to have a reminder of what God has done. Well, I filled my first journal this October and it was so exciting!
Blogging Schedule – Besides last week, I stuck to my blogging schedule this month!! I have a few posting ideas for November…
I hope you enjoyed hearing some of my highlights from the month! What are your highlights from October? What has God been teaching you? Let me know in the comments below!
