An Inspired Young Woman's Daybook #8

And, it's time again for an entry in an inspired young woman's daybook! But first, I have some fun things to let you know about. Livvy at A Daughter's Heart is doing a giveaway of  a Sense and Sensibility e-pattern (so you can make a dress just like the ones from a Jane Austen novel)! Go over to her site and enter soon, because the giveaway ends this Tuesday!

Also, Samantha at Simple Delights is doing a Modest Fashion Week on June 14-19! You post your modest outfit each day of the week, and then at the end of the week everyone gets to vote on their favorite. Click on over to her blog to find out more about it and sign up!



Alright, now here is my entry in the daybook (which I filled out earlier today):

Today the world has finally decided to be springy. Therefore, so am I!
I'm feeling cheerful & chipper.
My outfit is jeans and a turquoise short sleeve shirt.
Outside my window it is a beautiful day, though come to think of it, the sky still is covered with faint clouds.
A song that's stuck in my head is Vivaldi's Spring (again!) I'm playing it to accompany a violinist, so I've been hearing it over and over and over again. ;)
Something (a book, song, movie, person...) that's inspired me recently: my church is doing an outreach to the community, and it's really inspired me to witness to those around me.
A prayer of my heart this week is to delight in God and in spending time with Him.
I am creating a lot of ongoing things... and I'm not really focusing on them at the moment (unfortunately).
I am reading Do Hard Things, (still), Passion & Purity (still), and I just got some books from a used book sale which I'm excited about starting as well!
I am thinking about the Spanish that I have to work on for my Clep study. :P
A scripture verse or passage that's stuck out to me this week: James 3:17 "But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere."
A spiritual lesson I'm learning is to listen to God's leading, and rely on Him for the strength to be bold and tell the truth to others.
An attribute of God I've seen this week is Holy. He is so pure and righteous - and it is my desire to be more and more like Him each day.
A picture I’d like to share: (this is one I've wanted to put on my photography blog but haven't yet)


A creative goal for next week is to try to get at least a few chapters of "Rescue My Heart" re-written. I have a lot going on this week, so this may not happen... we'll see.
Did I complete my goal from last week um... it was to work on "Rescue My Heart". Unfortunately (or fortunately) I've been working on writing just about everything else besides that, so I didn't complete my goal. 
But I did finish the allegory I was telling you all about awhile back! It's an allegory of Christ's work for us on the cross, called "Redeemed". If you all would like to read it I might post it on here. But I'd have to get a lot of responses in order to do it. ;)

Dear Melody,
You have one new follower----ME! :)

Since I started "normal" blogging again, it's so nice to be able to read other girls blogs and just blurb. :)

I can't wait to get to know you better!!

Awel

p.s. I didn't get to work on your makeover today...we were at work longer than I expected. :) But tomorrow!! :)

I know I feel awful for cluttering your blog up with my comments, but I forgot to say in the previous comment that I write an allegory too! (it's about 113 pgs. right now and I call it Risen. :) It's more of a christian science fiction... but I love it. ;)

Caroline: I mentioned my allegory in my last Daybook entry (I think) which was awhile ago. :P

Tiffany: Thank-you! I did end up editing the picture quite a bit, though I try not to usually. ;)

emilia: Yes, daybooks are a lot of fun! Especially since I made this one up so I made up all the questions. ;)

Frailyn: Thank-you! Yes, I'm sorry I have not sent you my book yet - I'm still working on revising it and it doesn't make much sense right now (except to me). :P I will try to send it to you soon!

Cole: Thanks for visiting! Come again! :D

Awel: Comments always light up my day so don't apologize about it! That's awesome that you're writing an allegory as well! The allegory is actually a short story, so it's not nearly as long as yours. Yours sounds really interesting though!

Blessings to all of you!

~Melody
