Just another Monday

I love Mondays. Yes, I know I'm a freak.

Think about it, though. Mondays are the start of a whole new week! Who knows what adventure lies ahead? Gone is the weekend that, in spite of all good intentions of relaxing and doing something fun, was spent cleaning and cooking and grocery shopping. Now, it's back to work and doing all the fun stuff like talking to clients, filing stuff with the Court, putting out fires, studying my next module in my online class, scrapbooking for the weekly challenge I'm in, checking emails, running kids to and fro, meeting with the tax guy, etc.

Well, gotta dash. Work is waiting.

Love Is In The Air

Here's a pic of a layout I did for my hubby's birthday and Valentine's Day present - he loved it!

Boston University

Well, I finally did it!

I enrolled in Boston University's online paralegal program. I am just approaching the halfway mark and I am so excited and thrilled to be a part of this program. I love being in school. If I could afford it, and had the time to devote to it, I could be a perpetual student. I love learning stuff!

God is so awesome for giving me this opportunity!

Ok, so I'm a little behind.....

in updating my blog. I can offer you a ton of excuses, but I won't.

Here's what I've been up to with the Scripture Challenge:

The middle set of pics are of the word "Glad" in Hebrew. I don't typically do things in foreign languages, particularly a language I can't read or speak, but as I was doing my Bible study, it occurred to me that it would be cool to do this particular word in its original language.

I am a BIG fan of definitions - just ask my Bible study group. I find that I often use words that I don't really know the meaning of. For example, I know and use the word "glad" often. I know the gist of its meaning, but if you were to ask me the definition of the word - I'd have no idea. I could explain it to you, I could use it in a sentence or two or three. Beauty is another one of those words that is so often used, yet do we really know what it means? Not what we have been conditioned to think it means, but what it really means? How about the word love? Overused and often misused to describe those fluttery feelings for the opposite sex that soon wear off when we realize his feet smell or that he belches and farts just like the rest of 'em.

Anyhow, I don't mean for this to be a commercial for the benefits of reading the dictionary. I did find it fascinating though to explore the original Hebrew word and see what God said. Being "glad" is all about Him - He is the one that makes us glad because we can trust in His aid and in His protection.

What great definitions can you find for those everyday words?
