For today... November 30, 2009
Outside my window...
darkness fills the night,
the rain is lightly falling
I am thinking...
of the good time that we had today,
as a family, spending time with friends
I am thankful for...
the blessing of the Holy Spirit
I am wearing...
square neck/regency style dress
I am remembering...
to trust the Lord
and to choose gratitude
I am going...
to enjoy a cup of hot chai green tea
before retiring for the night
I am reading...
my KJ Bible through in a year,
currently in Nehemiah, Song of Solomon, 2 Corinthians;
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
How to Be Happy by Leon F. Maurer
Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (with my eldest)
I am hoping (praying)...
for the Holy Spirit's continued work
in the hearts of the ones I love;
for those friends/family that I have
that still need to accept Christ as their Savior;
for my aunt that is very ill
On my mind...
the love of God
From the learning rooms...
being students of God's Word in John and Ruth;
learning of Ancient Greece
and other miscellaneous subjects
giving thanks and praise to the LORD of all
is easy, natural, and overflowing when we have a heart
of thankfulness and an attitude of gratitude
Pondering these words...
"Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks,
and to look well to thy herds."
~ Proverbs 27:23
(my "Mama-ing" verse)
From the kitchen...
clean and closed for the day
On the Menu...
M ~ Grill out with friends
T ~ Tacos
W ~ Potato Soup
Th ~ Turkey and Rice Casserole
F ~ Sourdough Pizza
S ~ Sloppy Joes
Sun ~ Pig Pickin' at church
Around the house...
the younger children are sleeping for the night;
our eldest is playing a game in the living room;
beloved is relaxing
I am creating...
family photo cards
I am hearing...
rain falling outside the window
and classical favorites playing
from my computer
One of my favorite things...
spending a day with friends
A few plans for the rest of the week...
focus on some learning moments;
clean the church; go to the commisary;
attend our midweek prayer/Bible service;
go to Beth's violin master's class;
go to our homeschool group's park day;
enjoy the time that we get to have at home ;o)
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
from my etsy shop
"This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not,
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness."
~ Lamentations 3:21-23
Praise God for such a wonderful hope!
Praise Him that He is Faithful!
Have a wonderful week!
