Are You Reading the OYD book?

Are you reading through The One Year Devotions for Girls Starring Women of the Bible? If so, which Bible woman so far is your favorite? Which are you most like? What have you learned from each? Please leave me a comment. Eve helps us remember that God has given us the personality and talents for the job he's called us to do.
Mrs. Noah reminds us that sometimes we have to live differently than those around us.
We are just starting to read about Sarah.

Devos in Orlando

On Saturday and Sunday we were in Orlando at Disney World. We started at Magic Kingdom. It was somewhat cold and windy at the time, so the girls were trying to warm up with Tigger when we were supposed to be getting our photo taken.
We saw Stitch.
And hung out.


We saw Buzz and Woody, and Sully and Mike.
And we even took our devo books to Orlando. We finished Eve and started Mrs. Noah.
We always discuss how we can apply the devos to our own lives, but the girls were a little wound up! It was about midnight. Anyone else get totally silly at midnight?
Devos are not usually so hilarious! But at least we had devos on the road Friday night, in Orlando Saturday and Sunday nights and before we left for home Monday morning.

Devos

Jasmine, Jessica and I are reading through this book together this year. The one day we can't do it together is Wednesday, because Jessica leaves for college at 8:30, picks Jasmine up for dance straight from college (jazz and tap), takes the twins home from dance (tumbling but it's at the dance academy) and makes supper. Then she's left for her night class (used to be church orchestra but she has to take a class Wed nights now to graduate her two year program in May) by the time Jasmine and I get home. By time she gets home, Jasmine is in bed. We try to read it together daily as soon as both girls are home from school and that time varies from 3:30 to 4:30. On the weekend we do it whenever we can. We are even taking it on our Disney trip this weekend!

So far we are reading about Eve. I wrote about Eve on this blog several months ago. It's in the archives under Bible women. The thing about Eve is that we forget she's more than just the woman who ate the fruit, she was God's unique creation. She was the first woman to walk the earth. She came into the world as an adult and had her own personality, talents and abilities. The thing for us to remember is that God gave each of us the personality and abilities that we need to accomplish the things he has for us to do.

Anyone else reading the book too?
