Thursday Summertime Bible Verse Challenge

Hello to August 5th and our last 4 weeks of our Summertime Bible Verse Challenge. Share any verse/verses from the Bible with us in the comments and I’ll add them below. Enjoy digging into God’s Word!

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (ESV)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.

From Kathy:

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs to not be ashamed. Rightly dividing the word of God.

2 Timothy 2:15

From Maristella:

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”

2 Timothy 4:7-8

All is Calm…

…and with grandchildren, all is bright!

Here is Addy pleased that she’s earned another badge from Awana. Are you familiar with Awana?

With an unwavering commitment to the gospel, Awana is being used to reach over 4 million kids every week in 120 countries, giving children and youth from every background an opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus for a lifetime.

Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed
In 1950, Latham and Rorheim founded Awana as a parachurch organization. The name is derived from the first letters of “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.

Our DIL messaged the fam these photos of Addy who earned a new badge at Awana and then Addy and JJ enjoying the great outdoors. All our past snow has melted and we have more snow in the forecast for Friday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. That forecast shows sunny days on Saturday and Monday. Time will tell if the forecast is correct.

On Wednesday I was able to take our Christmas cards to the post office and send them off. Two other packages were mailed off for two babies that will be born to our extended family early next year.

Dear has made some progress on the shop with all the trims around the overhead garage doors and man door. Our local son will come over on Saturday to make some more progress on the siding.

Since this photo was taken the wrap is up in this front end of the shop, all ready for the siding now!

Soon I’ll wrap presents. This past Tuesday when Addy and JJ came for a short visit Addy asked, “Baba, do you have a present for me under the tree?” I said, “no, but there will be presents for you under that tree soon.”

I hope all is calm and all is bright at your home!
