I am late to the game but that's ok! Basically, they give a scripture, you write/share what you think of that scripture and then you link up on Fridays during Lent.
Should be inspiring and fun!
Psalm 130 The Message
1-2Help, God—the bottom has fallen out of my life!
Master, hear my cry for help!
Listen hard! Open your ears!
Listen to my cries for mercy.
3-4If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
and that’s why you’re worshiped.
5-6I pray to God—my life a prayer—
and wait for what he’ll say and do.
My life’s on the line before God, my Lord,
waiting and watching till morning,
waiting and watching till morning.
7-8O Israel, wait and watch for God—
with God’s arrival comes love,
with God’s arrival comes generous redemption.
No doubt about it—he’ll redeem Israel,
buy back Israel from captivity to sin.
I love reading different versions of the Bible! For study purposes, I really like the Amplified and The Message versions. They are eye opening! I read Psalm 130 in what SRT uses...English Standard Version and then switched to The Message and found myself chuckling just a bit at the first verse..."Help!...the bottom has fallen out of my life!"...and quickly agreed...yep, I've said that a few times! But I've also said and done the rest of this passage...
Cry, wait, hope, look, wait, and hope.
And also found the same at the end of all that crying, and waiting, and looking and hoping....redemption. And not just any redemption but plenteous (in the Amplified), generous redemption!! What a promise! Thank you Lord!

I've never really celebrated St. Patrick's Day....I just always made sure and wore green so not to get pinched! Ha! I think Hunkie is thinking about a date day ( we have those instead of nights due to his wacky work schedule...whatever works, right?) around St. Patrick's Day since we didn't have a date for Valentine's. So I thought it'd be fun to create a causal date look. I love the look of a denim shirt with colored jeans....so fun!! And I think I'm going to do a little bit of decorating for St. Pat's this year too. Lil' Hunkie likes to help me decorate our mantel and I recently picked up a few things at the Dollar Tree to do so. Should be fun!!
How about you? How do you spend the green day?
