Simple Woman's Daybook: November 16, 2010

For today...
Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Outside my window...
the sun is shining brightly
in a very blue and cloudless sky

I am thinking...
about how beautiful the Scriptures are...
and how He uses them to open eyes

I am thankful ...
how He does open eyes,
how He teaches,
how He draws a line,
how He gives grace
and strength to step out
in obedience and faith

I am wearing...
a black cotton jumper
with a burgundy checkered,
button up, long sleeve shirt
(oh, and wool socks... brrr)

I am remembering...
the goodness and the faithfulness
of YHVH {the LORD}

I am reading...
Ezekiel, Matthew,
and portions from
Genesis {Torah portion};
"Fossilized Customs" by Lew White;
"The Hallelujah Diet" by George Malkmus;
"Restoration" by D. Thomas Lancaster;
"Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus" by Ann Spangler, Lois Tverberg

I am hoping (praying)...
for Truth, strength, wisdom,
love, and grace
especially in circumstances;
for our eldest, who is at college,
to grow closer to the Savior,
to see HIS truths,
and to obey and follow HIM;
for my beloved husband
and our children still at home;
for the YHVH {the LORD}
to open the eyes of His people;
for friends and family
that are going through difficult times

On my mind ...
the many blessings He gives
and how He orchestrates everything
according to His will and in His time

From the learning rooms...
reading living books
miscellaneous seatwork,
studying Torah portions
and branching off into unit-type studies;
natural learning always continues...
Mama is still trying to compile
a list of this year's plans
and work out a 'skeleton' of structure.

Noticing that...
when we humble ourselves,
and see our need,
and seek Him with our whole heart,
He will feed, fill, and satisfy

Pondering these words ...

"Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled...
Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see Elohim."
Matthew 5:6,8

‎"I am YHVH thy Elohim,
which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:
open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it."
Psalms 81:10

From the kitchen...
the dishwasher needs to be emptied;
no bake cookies need to be put away;
a new menu hangs from the fridge
in need of the items to make it useful ;)

On the Menu...

T ~ Taco Rice Tacos
W~ Rigate Bake
Th ~ Chicken & Dumplings
F ~ Sourdough Pizza
S ~ Barley Soup & Challah
Sun ~ Chicken & Noodles

{a decrease of cooked
& packaged foods for me
and an increase of raw foods}

I am creating...
sigh... I have been slacking
terribly in this area...
but I hope to work on
regency dresses
(for an online friend & her family);
a few toddler skirts
(for a friend);
and some tea wallets
for a friend)

I am hearing...
the children watching
a short movie in the family room;
cars outside my window;
and my blog's background music
playing softly at the computer

One of my favorite things...
hearing how YHVH is
opening the eyes of others

A few plans for the rest of the week...
continue in our studies;
go grocery shopping;
sew, sew, and sew;
enjoy the many comforts of home!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

"But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass
the glory of the Lord {Master; YHVH},
are changed into the same image
from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord {Master}."
2 Corinthians 3:18

Are we being changed into His image?
Do we reflect Him?
Are we looking into the mirror of His Word?

May we.

Hello, Christina! I was noticing that you replaced the name Lord with the tetragrammaton, but that is not an accurate translation. The NT was not written in Hebrew, so the name "Lord" is kurios in Greek, meaning "supreme master".

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you, Valerie, I was aware of the NT written in Greek. :)

Oh, okay. Thanks for the link! Why aren't you using the Greek?
