Simple Woman's Daybook...

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;
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!

I see that you are reading one of Bro. Knox's books. He pastors a church not too terribly far away from us. I have read several of his books and appreciate his position as a Bible Believer.

Hope you and yours have a splendid week! :)

Another lovely Daybook as always. The book on praying through the Bible for family sounds interesting. We are in the process of adopting an Israelie missionary to Israel too.

Have a wonderful week!!
