I met with my friend Laura this week to go over our scripture memory. We also have great, encouraging conversation. We are going through many of the same things (spiritually, situationally, etc.) so we are able to really pray for each other. It is a blessing. Here are our scriptures for next week:
Strengthen the weak hands, & make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, "Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come & save you." Isaiah 35:5
By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as He is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, & whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:17-19
Last weekend Claire & Russell came to visit us. We had fun! We went to the stockshow at the rodeo & hung out with pigs, cute cows, chicks, sheep, & other cute animals. Claire & I went to see Confessions of a Shopaholic (which was a fun, lighthearted movie - my favorite) while the guys cooked us a yummy dinner of steak, green beans, mashed potatoes, & garlic bread. They are so sweet. Then we went out for desserts, all dressed up. It was a great Valentine's weekend.
