Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

Day 11 - To Helsinki

We got up EARLY Thursday morning to catch the 8:00 am train to Helsinki. We were in our own private "family" room on the train. It even had toys. EG enjoyed looking out the window and walking around playing with toys. We arrived in Helsinki, dropped off our luggage in the "luggage room" at the hotel and made our way to find lunch. About 1 1/2 hours and 2 restaraunts later we ate! :) Now we were energized to do some sightseeing around Helsinki.
This is EG's first ever stay in a hotel room and she has done much better than I ever expected. We went to a HUGE department store that has everything in it. It has at least 7 stories...H-U-G-E! They are having a big sale through tomorrow...it is called "Crazy Days" and all the crazies came out for it and of course EG and I were like magnets. Some lady went on and on and on speaking to me in Finnish about the name Emma vs. Emmie. Who knows what she was saying but she was quiet passionate. Weird! Another asked me a million + 1 questions about Emma and others just stared and stared.
