The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, September 25, 2012...
Outside my window...it's pitch dark. It was already pretty dark at 7:30pm.
I am thinking...of the 7th grade science fair project. I came back from a school meeting detailing what this year's project entails.
I am thankful...that I was able to take my son to the dentist today to get some baby teeth pulled that should have come out a long time ago.
I am going...to bed soon. It's 9 o'clock at night. Well, not quite yet, but in about an hour.
I am wearing...my pj's. I've taken a nice refreshing shower and I'm ready for bed.
I am noticing...how tall my youngest son is getting. It's like he grows a quarter of an inch every month or so. He is now my height, 5'4", and he's 12 years old. Where did my baby go? :'(
In the kitchen...we had crispy baked chicken wings with garlic noodles, broccoli and salad.
I am creating...nothing right now, but I'll be working with my son to create a science project very soon.
I am reading...Hurricanes in Paradise, still. I haven't had much time to sit and read lately.
I am hoping...this science fair project goes well for my son. He has to do a Power Point presentation this time. Science fair projects have changed since I was a kid.
I am looking forward to...sleeping in tomorrow. No school on account of Yom Kippur.
I am hearing...my son's chatter. It's easy to see the numbing medicine has worn off.
Around the house...I did the basics today because it was Molly's bath day. She got all cleaned up, as did her bedding and her toys. She smells fresh and sweet now :)
A favorite quote of the day..."Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can." - Charles Wesley.
One of my favorite things...days off from school :D
A few plans for the rest of the week...I'm teaching for counsel time tomorrow in Awana. I'll be talking about the fruits of the Holy Spirit. That's all I have planned other than church on Sunday.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
