Cactus along the way,
reaching their 'hands' up to the sky...

"I stretch forth my hands unto thee:
my soul thirsteth after thee,
as a thirsty land. Selah."

Playing the southwest part...

Saw many of these along the way...

Beautifully, breathtaking creation
along the way...

{an oasis}

sing praises to his name:
extol him
that rideth upon the heavens
by his name JAH,

Simple Woman's Daybook! June 29, 2010...

For today... Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Outside my window...
the skies are bright, gray, and cloudy,
there's a chill in the air,
and the beauty of the city
can be seen in the horizon

I am thinking...
of how wonderful JEHOVAH is!

I am thankful for...
how my Heavenly Father,
my Creator, my Savior,
loves me

I am wearing...
a blue suede jumper
with a tan 3/4 sleeve t-shirt

I am remembering...
the LORD's wonderful works
that HE has done in my life recently;
and special friends that we
departed from when we moved

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 Jeremiah, 1 Peter;
lesson in our Sunday evening Bible study

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 my brother and his family
as they are going through a
very difficult time right now

On my mind...
unpacking boxes

From the learning rooms...
only natural learning
is going on right now
as I make our new house a home

Noticing that...
the LORD is faithful

Pondering these words...
"We lie down in our shame,
and our confusion covereth us;
for we have sinned against the LORD our God,
we and our fathers,
from our youth even unto this day,
and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God."
~ Jeremiah 3:25
... read this in my quiet time with HIM ...
meditating on it as I ask HIM
to open my eyes where I have not obeyed HIM.

From the kitchen...
a little clean up is needed

On the menu...
today is italian chicken & pasta
Then a new menu is needed

Around the house...
the children are up
and busy about the house

I am creating...
a new haven at home ;o)

I am hearing...
the lil' girls playing together
in a big box,
Will playing a game
at the dining room table;
Ally is quietly reading
in the family room

One of my favorite things...

A few plans for the rest of the week...
unpack many more boxes;
chisel away at Mount Washmore;
go grocery shopping;
possibly help the mission team
that is visiting our church this week;
work on memorizing my Scripture verse
and meditation with Pastor's wife;
continue making our house a home

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

"I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait,
and in his word do I hope."
~ Psalm 130:5

Have a blessed week!

Photo Journal: Arizona... The Grand Canyon!

The Grand Canyon, Arizona
May 26, 2010

"For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens;
God himself that formed the earth and made it;
he hath established it, he created it not in vain,
he formed it to be inhabited:
I am the LORD; and there is none else."
~ Isaiah 45:18

... canyons along the way...

Watchtower to view canyon from

"Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power,
and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:
for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine;
thine is the kingdom, O LORD,
and thou art exalted as head above all."
~ 1 Chronicles 29:11
