Simple Woman's Daybook...



For Today...

Outside my Window...
the sky is brightening, drops of light rain are pattering,
a cool, autumn-like breeze is blowing


I am thinking...
of some wonderful Truths from God's Word
through our services yesterday


From the learning rooms...
we still await the arrival of new books,
are working with what we have now,
and look forward to further implementation of our schedule


I am thankful for...
God's house, God's Word, and God's bold, faithful people
that do not change with every wind of doctrine
and that do not conform to this world,
for our visiting evangelist for the revival at our church,
for God's longsuffering, forgiveness, mercy, grace, and faithfulness


From the kitchen...
the coffee pot is cooling, cold cereal for breakfast,
leftover sourdough for lunch and tacos for supper


I am wearing...
my purple print dress and a pink sweater


I am reading...
the book of Judges {KJB}, Laying Down the Rails,
and A Charlotte Mason Companion


I am hoping...
my beloved has a good week at work
(as it is his last week of school),
that we have a true revival at church,
in our families, in my personal life,
and in our town and country


I am creating...
a final draft of our schedule (Lord willing)
and, possibly, another dress


I am hearing...
a tufted titmouse singing, a blue jay cawing loudly,
rain falling from the house, and the clock ticking


Around the house...
pick-up from the weekend and laundry will be done


One of my favorite things...
is spending time in prayer and in God's Word


A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...
We have a busy week with revival every night until Wednesday,
today is a doctor appointment for Ally,
Tuesday will be piano lessons that Ally teaches,
we have a homeschool group field trip this week,
in addition to what will be done at home


Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...



"If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above,
not on things on the earth."
~ Colossians 3:1-2

WOW! Your blog is a real blessing to me! I have been searching far and wide to find other like minded Christian women who are military spouses. As I am sure you know it is so discouraging sometimes being a military spouse. Christians in the Military are hard to come bye! I would like to add your blog to my blog roll. If that is not ok with you just send me a message and I will gladly remove it at your request. Your music is beautiful on your page!
God Bless,
Jessica Boots

I enjoyed my visit.
I looked at the dresses. I like the patterns. Did you make them yourself? The patterns?

I'm so glad someone else is praying for revival. America needs to turn back to God.

Hi Christina! I haven't commented in a while, but I wanted you to know that I still read and thought I'd take a minute to pop-up and say "hello". Hope you're having a blessed week!
