Simple Woman's Daybook...

FOR TODAY... January 26, 2009

Outside my window...
the sun has began waking, hiding behind the clouds,
and the sky is a calm blue-grey

I am thinking...
of getting ready for our upcoming day

I am thankful for...
the Lord answering specific, long term prayers
and how it is sometimes overwhelming how He does answer
"... exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.."

(Ephesians 3:20)

From the learning rooms...
Lord willing... Proverbs study, Jacob settling into Egypt,
current read alouds, miscellaneous seat work

From the kitchen...
only a few dishes in the sink (from the weekend),
the smell of hot coffee lingers,
and on the menu:
M ~ wet burritos
T ~ stuffed shells
W ~ homemade chicken soup & cornbread
Th ~ stir fry
F ~ sourdough pizza
S ~ Daddy grills out

I am wearing...
tan regency dress with burgandy shirt jacket

I am creating...
a regency, sleeveless pelisse
to go over an upcoming white regency dress

I am reading...
Exodus, Psalm, Matthew (KJB),
Boyhood and Beyond

I am hoping (praying)...
the Lord will continue to work in the hearts
of the family/friends I have been praying for

I am hearing...
the heater blowing and 'white noise' from the monitors,
as the children are still sleeping

Around the house...
things are somewhat tidy but a home blessing is still needed
and Mount Washmore needs 'chiseling'

One of my favorite things...
being spiritually refreshed and challenged in God's House
and fellowshipping with like-minded brethren

A few plans for the rest of the week:
go to Ally's endocrinologist appointment today,
go to piano lessons that she teaches,

attend our midweek service,
continue working out with my beloved,
work on the habit of Bible reading with the children
and having consistancy in our days,
comfort and support a friend as her husband deploys,
enjoy the moments with my beloved and children

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

"Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.
Are ye not much better than they?"
~ Matthew 6:26

I'm so glad He cares for me!

I'm sure you will be a great blessing to the lady who's husband is deploying. If my husband were in the military, I would hope I lived near you!
Have a wonderful week! :)

What a peaceful week! I need to start making weekly meal plans. I think I may enjoy life more if I did. I think the hardest part about meal time is THINKING of what to make!

Thank you for the lovely wishes! BTW, popping into your daughter's blog ( beautiful BTW) I noticed she is a senior!! She looks so young! I can't believe you have a senior! Life creeps up on you doesn't it??

I was already in awe of the beauty of your header, and the love of our Lord across your blog, but what struck a chord with me was Ally's endorinolgist appointment. We have our first appointment on the 6th of February. Blessings for a peaceful week!
