Simple Woman's Daybook ~ April 6, 2010

For today... April 6, 2010

Outside my window...
bright skies and beautiful air,
a variety of birds are singing
their morning praises to God

I am thinking...
of how I fail every day
and the LORD of all
is longsuffering with me
and still loves me anyway

I am thankful for...
the Friend I have in Jesus

I am wearing...
a blue suede jumper
with a light pink t-shirt

I am remembering...
how Jesus gave His best for me,
has done so much for me,
and how I need to strive
to do my best for Him

I am going...
to trust and rest in JEHOVAH

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"H", Holy Spirit)
Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss;
Created to Be His Helpmeet (by Debi Pearl);
A Hunger for God by John Piper
20 and Counting by Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar

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

On my mind...
our upcoming move
and all that I need to work on
to make it happen more smoothly

From the learning rooms...
various and sporadic seatwork
and natural learning
as we prepare for our move

Noticing that...
the LORD is merciful, gracious,
longsuffering, and forgiving

Pondering these words...
"The steps of a good man
are ordered by the LORD:
and he delighteth in his way."
~ Psalm 37:23

From the kitchen...
a 'blessing' is needed

On the menu...
T ~ Crockpot chicken & noodles
W ~ Taco rice tacos
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...
lots of lists of things to pack;
a new jumper,
brown with floral print
{on hold for a little while}

I am hearing...
a variety of birds
singing their morning praises
to their Creator...
predominantly a mockingbird

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...
pack for our travels/upcoming move;
have a housing pre-inspection;
enjoy and encourage natural learning
with the children; do lots of laundry!;
pick up our eldest from work;
pick up our new travel trailer camper
with my beloved; plan our trip;
go to our midweek prayer and Bible study;
go grocery shopping; take eldest to her ACT;
host a Jane Austen tea!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

"The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come..."
~ Song of Solomon 2:12

What a blessing to see the changes of the seasons!
What a wonderful Creator we have
and what joys and delights HE gives us!
Be sure to take time, enjoy,
and give praise and thanks to HIM!
