Project 365 - Week 1

Project 365 button designed by

OK, I am gonna try this again ... and this time I am bound and determined to make it through the year. It is time for a fresh start and what better time than new year's?!

I have two pics for January 1 ...

Hattie lost her tooth. It was the third tooth to come out, but the first time that she was excited to have the tooth fairy come. Here is her tooth in the bag (gotta love Jewel Kade jewelry, love the necklace and the bag comes in handy too!!) just before it went beneath the pillow!

(in case you're wondering, the tooth fairy filled her bag with quarters! I asked her if she wanted to go to the store or put them in the piggy bank she got for Christmas and she chose the piggy bank and even shared a few of her coins with her sister!!)

My first memory verse of 2011! Two years ago my pBFF Beth Moore led a scripture memorization team on her blog. I started off to big (trying to do Psalm 150 ... ALL of Psalm 150 ... for my first verse) and I got overwhelmed and never finished the year. I HATE that, so I am determined to not let that happen again! This year she is presenting the challenge again - even creating these cute little spiral books for us! So twice a month (the 1st and 15th) we choose a verse and work on embedding it onto our hearts.

You're all I want in heaven!
You're all I want on earth!
When my skin
sags and my bones get brittle,
Psalm 73:25-26 (message)

I am excited for this year to begin. I really feel like God is stirring some new and exciting things in my life this year and I cannot wait! It is only Jan. 2 and between my devotional this morning, an AMAZING sermon and POWERFUL worship this morning and a challenging book I'm reading (Radical, by David Platt - I will share more on this later), God is already kickin my tail ... and I am LOVING IT!

Thank you Sarah for hosting this again this year! You are awesome ... I promise to do better this time around. We have no plans to move this year, so I may actually get through it!

14 of ya left some love:

I have learned that I am much more likely to achieve my goals if I make them "doable". Might have to check out the memory verse thing, is it too late to start?

LuAnn said...

Glad you are back and I am doing Beth's memory verses too. Have mine on the frig right now.

Welcome back to P365!

You are so right about scripture memorization, I try to be faithful and obedient but I fail more time than I am successful. Good luck with it this time!

Happy New Year!

Yay! I'm so glad you are doing this again this year. I so enjoy this project of yours! I always get a good giggle and some great photography to enjoy each week. Love the message version of that verse you shared in the book of Psalms. Thanks for sharing and Happy 2011!

That's how I'm feeling about the beginning of my year. Devos have been amazing, and Sunday was just AWESOME! Exactly what I needed and, like you, the kick in the tail I needed.

Doing the SSMT too! Put my Scripture in my sidebar. This is my first year. Looking forward to it.

Happy New Year!

Kate said...

I'm excited about the SSMT this year. I started out strong last time and lost it half way through. This year I need to do it for reasons that would take too long to explain. I'll encourage you along the way 'cause we can do it. :)

So glad you are back!
It will be fun to catch up.
Happy New Year!

Tori said...

Glad you're back!!
I am doing SSMT too! Nothing better than hiding His Word in our hearts!!
Hooray for the tooth fairy!
Have a great week!
