The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, January 9, 2013...
Outside my window...the breeze is blowing cool but the humidity makes it feel stifling.
I am thinking...about family.
I am thankful...that God opened my eyes to His truths and made me understand His Word.
I am going...to Awana tonight after a two week break.
I am wearing...a colorful top, jean skirt and white flip-flops. It's 80 degrees and windy out.
I am noticing...a little coolness in the air. I would love for it to cool off so the mosquitoes would disappear.
In the kitchen...I kept it simple today: burgers and fries.
I am creating...a new look for the living room. Actually, it's pretty much done. I've just got to download the pictures.
I am reading...Paradise Valley, by Beverly Lewis. It's an Amish story.
I am hoping...my daughter gets her wisdom teeth taken out soon. One of them is impacted, so she needs to see an oral surgeon. She has an appointment for next Wednesday.
I am looking forward to...seeing our Awana kids. I've missed the girls!
I am hearing...my son play a video game before he leaves for work.
Around the house...I did a good cleaning in the kitchen, family room and dining room. I also did a couple of loads of laundry. Tomorrow I'll tackle the living room and bathrooms.
A favorite quote of the day..."To a friend's house, the road is never long." - Author unknown.
One of my favorite things...spending a nice quiet evening at home with a good book :)
A few plans for the rest of the week...Family Fun night at our church this Saturday! It's an outdoor event, with lawn chairs so we can watch a movie, plenty of food and fellowship. We've enjoyed these so much in the past.
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
