For today... April 13, 2009
Outside my window...
it is a cloudy, dark sky
I am thinking...
of where I was and where I could have been
had it not been for the saving grace of Jesus Christ
and how thankful I am that He saved a sinner like me
I am thankful for...
the resurrection of Jesus Christ
and how through Him, my sins are forgiven
and I am justified, having a sure hope in Him
From the learning rooms...
continuing our Proverbs study,
studying history in Exodus,
studying the country of Israel
and "adopting" a missionary to pray for there,
continue our science/nature study read aloud,
and continue with our other seatwork.
From the kitchen...
a blessing (cleaning) is needed from the weekend
and a new menu needs to be made
I am wearing...
dark blue, floral jumper with a cream, collared shirt
I am creating...
new dress for my sister
and, Lord willing, for myself later this week
I am reading...
my KJ Bible through in a year,
currently in Deuteronomy, Psalms, Luke;
Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola;
Praying the Entire Bible for My Family by Joe Zichterman;
Holy Women by James Knox
I am hoping (praying)...
the Lord continues his work in
the family members/friends I've been praying for;
my beloved as he visits with his brothers this week
I am hearing...
Will and Beth playing a game in the living room;
"I love you"'s from Carolynne as she hugs my arm;
the dryer tumbling, the heater blowing
Around the house...
a little blessing (cleaning) is needed from the weekend
One of my favorite things...
spending quality AND quantity time
with the Savior and Lover of my soul
A few plans for the rest of the week...
focus on learning, training, and keeping our home;
possibly visit and fellowship with friends; sew as am able;
work on my memory verse; attend our midweek service;
go through lots of old photos on the computer to make
a photo board for our eldest's upcoming graduation;
prepare and mail out graduation invitations.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
"My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee;
and my soul, which though hast redeemed. " ~ Psalm 71:23
Praise God that I have been redeemed!
