Miscelleny Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} The "One in a Million" Bible Study by Priscilla Shirer has been such a blessing.  As the facilitator, I have been doubly blessed.  If you have never done it and you get an opportunity, I highly recommend it.  It is all about how God uses the "wilderness times"  in our lives to strengthen and develop our walk with HIM. We have two sessions left out of the six.

{2}Well, we moved our clocks forward Saturday evening and of course, when I woke up Sunday morning it was still dusky dark outside.  That's what I do not like about Daylight Savings Time, I want light in the morning and in the evening. ~smile~ Oh. well, I'll get use to it in a few weeks and then it will just about be time to move them backwards for Fall. Ugh!

{3} My youngest brother lives in the DesMoines area and as you know, all kinds of political things take place there.  He is CEO of a company there and is often invited to attend some of the political functions.  Last Monday he attended a luncheon in conjunction with the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition and he had this picture snapped.  I don't think there's any need to say who is who. ~grin~
He said while he didn't think he could ever have a "chummy" relationship with Newt, he did feel that he had great leadership capabilities.  I guess time will tell.

{4}This same brother will be celebrating his  46th birthday this Thursday, St. Patricks Day.  I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday.  I was beside myself with excitement over having a baby brother and that excitement still exists.  He and I have a very special relationship and I just hate that so many miles separate us.  He and my Dad met up with each other in Florida last month and enjoyed a little time with each other.  I was a bit jealous! ~wink~

{5}Okay girlies, you have one more week to register for my Two Year Blogoversary giveaway.  I have about 25 names in the pot right now and if yours isn't in there, make sure it is by next Sunday. I will post the winner right here on MM next Monday.  For the details, click on the giveaway button on the upper right of my blog sidebar.

Thanks to our sweet Carissa for hosting us each and every Monday. 

Blessings to all for a beautiful week!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I read the book by Priscilla Shirer but did not do the study. I'm sure it is very good. When you facilitate, I think you even get more out of it as you study more. :)

    I love popping in to read your Miscelleny Monday posts. Happy blogiversary!

    Blessings and love,

  2. Is the One in a Million a newer study or one that's been around for a while? I think we may do one of hers in the fall as everyone in our group is really enjoying her portion of the Deeper Still study.

  3. I enjoyed a study by Priscilla Shirer last fall and it blessed me beyond measure...I love the picture of your brother and precious dad...looks like they made some wonderful memories..thank you for letting us share in your days...and Blessings to you too, Lea, for a beautiful week...

  4. I've started One in A Million and just today I thought that it would be a good day to curl up with it. The kids are at gymnastics camp until 2, so I better get to it!

  5. I'm trying to recall if we've made this Iowa connection before. I'm from Iowa, and didn't recall that you had a brother here. (Iowa is a small place, as I'm sure you know, and there's only -- like -- three degrees of separation here. ~smile~)

  6. Stopping by to say `Hello`

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  7. What a great relationship with your brother! I envy that. I've only seen my brother twice in the past 17 years. He chooses to distance himself from the family. Hopefully, that will change one day.

  8. I love blogoversaries!!! And I'm so glad to have met you in the blogging world.

    I don't really care for the time change. Sigh. The Fall one is so much nicer.

    I've looked at that study --- how I wish I was closer and could be in your group!!



  9. Sounds like a great Bible study. I don't like DST. I wish we could be like some states that never change their time. Have a wonderful week.

  10. good ol' newt!!! awesome! i would've turned into a blubbering idiot. it's the political science girl in me. : )

    priscilla shirer is good. her conversation peace study is a must for all women! i think i told you before, but can't remember.

    have a great week, pretty lea!

  11. What a beautiful blog! I love your header :)
    Thanks for stopping by yesterday,
    I pray that your day is blessed beyond measure!

  12. Have you ever noticed you and I seem to go neck-in-neck with things in comment a lot? The ladies group I go to on Sunday nights are doing One in a Million too! I just love it! We are (or will be) on week 5. It's so fantastic! Ah, the wilderness! I am walking my way out of it now.. and God is showing me His plan. He is so good to meet us right where we are at! Hugs


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
