Simple Woman's Daybook...

For today... September 28, 2009

Outside my window...

the sun is brightly shining
and an autumn breeze is blowing

I am thinking...
about how God is still God no matter what
is happening in my life;
that I am not worthy nor deserving of His blessings
and how I should not take them for granted.

I am thankful for...

God's grace and strength...
that when I am weak He is strong

From the learning rooms...
being students of God's Word in Proverbs and Joshua;
learning of Ancient Greece and continuing studies
in our other subjects, as well

From the kitchen...
music is playing from the cd player
and the dishes are clean

On the Menu...
a new menu needs to be made

I am wearing...
a dark blue, courdory jumper
and a long sleeve shirt

I am creating...
dresses for the little girls

I am reading...
my KJ Bible through in a year,

currently in 2 King, Psalms, Romans;

the book of Job with my husband;
A Wife After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George;
When Women Walk Alone by Cindi McMenamin;
For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn;
Won By One: A Workbook on Personal Soul Winning
by Clarence Sexton
Order in the Court by Sherry Hutson Camperson;
Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey;

(with a friend aloud) Parents and Children by Charlotte M Mason;

I am hoping (praying)...

for the LORD to do what I can not...
work in the minds and the hearts of the ones I love

I am hearing...

piano hymns playing from the kitchen;
wind blowing through the trees;
the children playing at the dining room table

One of my favorite things...
when the LORD works in a heart
and allows me to see some of the fruit

A few plans for the rest of the week...

study God's Word with my children
and learn and teach how to apply it;
focus on trusting the LORD of all more;
enjoy our lessons in learning;
make decisions and take action in doing things
that will help me to keep the heartstrings
of my children's hearts tied to mine;
attend our midweek service; sew as I'm able;
go to our 6 year old daughter's violin lesson;
go to our homeschool group's park day;
celebrate a friend's daughter's birthday

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever:
for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength."
~ Isaiah 26:3-4

What a peace we can have
when we truly learn to trust in the LORD.

Thank you so much for all that you have written here. Such a comfort to me expecially where you wrote,
..."I am hoping (praying) for the Lord to do what I cannot...wotk in the minds and hearts of the ones I love"
I have a child who is not on the path right now and it is so hard as a mother to let go and let God.
Thank you for the encouragement through your Daybook writing today.
