Monday Meanderings (10/04/10)

I tend to make this list up over the weekends, so I will usually post this on a Sunday, rather than waiting until Monday.


Bible Study: Beth Moore’s 90 Day Study on Jesus. (this will last me until right before Christmas if I keep up with it. Then I want to finish Beloved Disciple)
Memory Verse: Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do no break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Cardamom is expensive ($10 for a small jar) here, so I found this place to order it. With the buy one, get two free (when I bought it), it comes out to just over $3 a jar.
