{sisterly sundays}

still trying to get back into our post-vacation groove.
though it was nice to have our weekly Bible study Wed. & uplifting fellowship with our spiritual fam today. 

{spiritually speaking this week}
1.goals - aside from working towards more regular congregation meeting attendance, daily bible reading, & putting spiritual things first...i'm also working prayerfully on getting out of my stagnant comfort zone & doing more in my service to God. which thru a phone call actually happened today after we got home from our meeting :)

2.daily Bible reading - i'm actually in the book of Nehemiah. FINALLY finished Ezra WOOOHOOO!!! i was so ready to move on.

3.Bible scripture - even though our speaker was using it today in the context of recreation (what, when & whom)...this is one of my fave scriptures.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concern, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste, whatever things are lovable, whatever things are well spoken of, whatever virtue there is and whatever praiseworthy thing there is, continue considering these things. 

*to me this is such a refreshing list of guidelines to align our moral compasses with (especially considering alternative moral compass guides such as pride, greed, selfishness, immorality, etc...).
i cannot see where considering &  striving to seek any of these attributes in everything we (& our families) say, think, do, who we spend our time with, etc...can bring anything but peacefulness & contentment to ourselves & our lives.
