For today... October 12, 2009
Outside my window...
it's cool and gray
I am thinking...
of what this upcoming week holds
I am thankful for...
how it's the Holy Spirit that works in hearts
I am wearing...
blue print jumper with ruffle and a white shirt
I am remembering...
how the Lord has not only saved my soul from Hell
but how He has saved me from myself,
my 'old' life and my sin
I am going...
to some friend's house today to grill out
and enjoy likeminded fellowship
I am reading...
my KJ Bible through in a year,
currently in 1 Chronicles, Psalms, Romans;
the book of Job with my husband;
A Wife After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George;
A Woman's Walk With God by Elizabeth George;
When Women Walk Alone by Cindi McMenamin;
For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn;
Order in the Court by Sherry Hutson Camperson;
Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey;
A Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola;
Keeping Our Children's Hearts by Steve and Teri Maxwell
I am hoping (praying)...
for the LORD to continuing doing what I can not...
work in the minds and the hearts of the ones I love;
for my brother's wife and her family
as they lost her stepdad this past week to cancer
On my mind...
being sure to do the things I know that I need to do
in my family and home to truly make it a haven
From the learning rooms...
being students of God's Word in John and Judges;
learning of Ancient Greece and continuing studies
in our other subjects, as well
life is short and our time is valuable,
I need to be using it wisely
Pondering these words...
"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
From the kitchen...
some tidying up is needed from the weekend
On the Menu...
M ~ grilling out
then a new menu is needed
Around the house...
the children are playing, Daddy is sleeping in,
and all is cozy and home-like
I am creating...
a baby gift for a friend at church
and dresses for the lil' girls, if time
I am hearing...
the younger children play in the living room
One of my favorite things...
that I have a Friend in Jesus,
that He cares for me,
and I can take everything to Him in prayer
A few plans for the rest of the week...
spend Columbus Day with friends from church;
work on my sewing projects; focus on homeschool;
work at consistency with our schedule;
attend our midweek prayer and Bible service;
go to Beth's violin lessons,
and enjoy our homeschool group park day
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:
but the word of our God shall stand forever."
~ Isaiah 40:8
Praise God for such a promise
and that we know we can trust His Word!
