About ME

Hi! My name is Diane Bible. I have been married to Abe for 54 years now. I am a missionary in Ukraine. I have also lived in Alaska, Canada, Austria and England. But this blog is not about being a missionary. I love the opportunity to share a bit with friends and family on my life, my journey, my ups and downs. I love the Lord Jesus passionately and live joyously–even on the bad days!

I love to read. I love to ride bike, but some physical things have slowed that down! I love to walk. Nevertheless I’m not athletic–at all! I don’t do crafts. I don’t sew. I love my family. I love my husband. I love learning new things on the computer including how to blog! But I don’t have much time for it. That’s the short of it! The long of it will come as I blog!

My Passion

bible, study, coffee

My first and foremost passion is the Lord Jesus Christ and all of my other priorities in life take their place under that one primary passion. I love to start my day with Lord. I want to hear from Him before anything else. I want to discuss my day with Him. I want to soak in His presence. So reading my Bible every day is not optional, it’s a necessity.

Along with that comes memorizing the Word of God. Pretty hilarious. I came to this very late in life, so my ability in memorization is “low”, but–I don’t care! and that’s simply because my purpose in memorizing Scripture is to meditate on it. I’m not performing. I’m not going to win a prize for saying my verses correctly. I’m not going to stand up in front of someone and recite. No, this is between me and God. I use a memorization app now, but when I started seriously memorizing some years ago I would print verses out and carry them with me. Now…they are always with me on my phone. Spare moments on the bus or standing in line–an opportunity to renew my mind! I love it!!

My Goals

Ah yes, goals. There’s a whole history there and I will blog about goal setting, simply because it has always been major in my life. I have life goals. I have long-term goals. I have yearly goals. And I have daily goals! Most of my goals are centered around relationships.

Yes, my main goals and priorities are centered around God. Around the Father. Around the Lord Jesus Christ. Around the Holy Spirit.

It is my desire to give Him joy every day. To show my love through my obedience. To reflect His glory in my face, in my attitude, in my actions.

That is what I try to use to focus all of my “sub” goals on.

‘Love the Lord your God with every passion of your heart, with all the energy of your being, and with every thought that is within you.'
