Simple Woman's Daybook ~ March 29, 2010

For today... March 29, 2010

Outside my window...
the sky is darkened and cloudy,
as rain is falling down

I am thinking...
how the Creator and King of kings
left His home in Heaven
to come to Earth, to die for me...
because He loved me that much

I am thankful for...
the Perfect Sacrifice in Jesus Christ,
that, through HIM, I am saved from hell
and free from sin

I am wearing...
a burgundy, checkered jumper
with a long sleeve shirt

I am remembering...
the pain, the agony, the humiliation
that Jesus Christ went through
to purge me from my sin

I am going...
to strive to love HIM more
and to do my best for HIM

I am reading...
through my KJ Bible in a year,
{I fell behind last year so I am doing this in a year and a half}
currently in Isaiah, Hebrews;
our A to Z Mentoring printouts from church
(working on"G", God)
Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss;
Created to Be His Helpmeet (by Debi Pearl);
A Hunger for God by John Piper
A Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays by Robin Sampson & Linda Pierce

I am hoping (praying)...
for the Holy Spirit to work His perfect will
in our eldest's life
and for His protection over her,
for His will and help in our upcoming move
and all of the details involved;
that believers and non-believers
will see Jesus Christ, see God, as He is
and be moved to repentance...
praying for revival

On my mind...
How Jesus Christ paid a debt He did not owe
and a debt I could not pay...
that through His blood,
I am forgiven, restored, and free!

From the learning rooms...
focusing on the passover
of the Old and New Testament;
book of Judges for history;
studying Ancient Greece;
and various things in other subjects

Noticing that...
we can not understand fully
the depth of what Jesus Christ did for us,
and still does

Pondering these words...
"Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God,
thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation,
and took upon him the form of a servant,
and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself,
and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him,
and given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow, of things in heaven,
and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."
~ Philippians 2:5-11

From the kitchen...
dishes await to be done from the weekend

On the menu...
M ~ Italian pasta
T ~ Homemade chicken pot pie
W ~ Shepherd's Pie
Th ~ Stir fry and rice
F ~ Sourdough Pizza

Around the house...
all is quiet
as Daddy and eldest are at work
and the younger ones are sleeping

I am creating...
a new jumper,
brown with floral print

I am hearing...
the rain fall outside my window
and quiet noises from the baby monitor

One of my favorite things...
enjoying quiet time in the morning
with my Creator, Saviour, and Friend

A few plans for the rest of the week...
work on our homeschool lessons; sew;
celebrate Passover; clean the church house;
pick up our eldest from work;
attempt to declutter and prepare
for our upcoming move (approaching fast!);
go to our midweek prayer and Bible study;
take Beth to violin lessons; go grocery shopping;
enjoy a day at the park

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

"But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us."
~ Romans 5:8

May we grasp a hold of what He did for us.
May it change us...
who we are, the way we live...
May we strive to love Him more...
to obey Him.
May we tell others of His great love for them.
