Calendar Girl

I LOOOOVE calendars!

As each month rolls into the next, I relish the flipping of each page.

I have them ALL over my house.

Come December 26th, I am out the door ~ not to get merchandise bargains....but to get half-price calendars. Yippee!

Here are the ones I am enjoying this year:

This one I have in my dressing room that I look at while putting on make-up and blow- drying my hair.

This one I have on the back of my door to the bathroom. I see this one alot.

This one I have on my bathroom mirror. A girl can dream while she's brushing her teeth, right?

This one my husband bought me for Christmas and I have in my laundry room to keep up with the dogs' medicine.

This one I use as a diary to record my days' doings.

This one I have over my desk, so as I wait for my things to get printed....I can revel in the glory of God's creation and creativity.

This one I have by my bedroom chair because it warms the cockles of my heart.

There is also the ones I use for marking my schedule. They are ministries that are close to my heart:

Wycliffe Bible Translators and Hope Now Ministries.

After the year is up, I will keep these and pray over them.

As I matter of fact, I have a hard time throwing away any of my old calendars....sometimes I use them to put on packages or for craft projects.


Marking time. How truly fleeting it is. Tomorrow I turn over a new page ~ where do the old page go?

Billy Graham writes: “Our days are numbered. One of the primary goals in our lives should be to prepare for our last day. The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. What preparations should we be making now? The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day.”

Time is one of our most precious commodities. A remarkable gift from God.... given to us to use it as we choose, with no strings, no caveats. Ideally, we would choose to use it to glorify Him. How I hope that I somehow do.....despite the time I have wasted. May God restore the years the locust has eaten to glorify Him, and....Lord, just like Moses I pray ~ Teach me to number my days, that I may gain a heart of wisdom. May I be wise in my time management and all matters that concern You.

Yes, I am a "Calendar Girl." I want them to help me to number my days.


  1. I keep my calendars for years, they are usually quilting ones, and I cant bear to throw them away.

  2. This is such a cool post, Mom! I love it! Yay for flipping our calendars TODAY!!! November 1st :)

  3. My mother is a "Calendar Girl" also! She has been known to keep calendars for several years, and in fact, I'd be surprised if she didn't have them still!

  4. Hi Becky,

    I can't begin to explain how you have made my day. The prayer that you have left regarding my son's salvation WILL be printed out and placed in his new bible. You have prayed for myself and my family before on Sugar Pie Farmhouse too. How blessed am I that the Lord has used you to lift us up in prayer. I thank you. :-)

    I'm so glad that you have stopped by and enjoyed my blog... I can tell we are kindred spirits! :-) Thank you for the tip on washing the throw.

    I also took to heart what you mentioned regarding Perfectionism... I hope/look forward to having many more chats with you. You are such a dear.

    Love Carissa
