The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, February 26, 2013...
Outside my window...it's very cloudy. It's a warm, humid day, but the weekend promises to be cooler and drier.
I am thinking...of my sister's visit in December. I don't like long waits.
I am thankful for...God's presence in my life. We saw a video in our Sunday school class about the vastness of the universe and how very small we are. It blows my mind that even though I am such a tiny speck in God's creation, He still hears and answers my prayers.
I am going...to pick up my son from school in a little while.
I am wearing...a multi-colored top, jean skirt and flip-flops. It's 81 degrees in beautiful South Florida.
I am noticing...the mess my son left on our family room coffee table.
In the kitchen...I kept it real simple. Tyson chicken strips, macaroni and cheese, and a salad.
I am reading...Ruby, still, but I'm over halfway done.
I am hoping...my daughter does well on Friday. She's performing at her church's concert.
I am looking forward to...the Casting Crowns concert on Saturday.
I am hearing...the keyboard clicks. My daughter is at the church office, my older son is napping and my youngest is at school. Oh, and Molly is asleep too. :)
Around the house...most of the cleaning got done yesterday. I had a doctor's appointment this morning so I haven't done anything, except wash the breakfast dishes and fix my bed.
A favorite quote of the day...“A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went.” ― Dave Ramsey.
One of my favorite things...listening to the wind blow through the palm fronds in our back yard.
Here's a picture thought I'm sharing...my daughter belting out a song at the carnival:
A few plans for the rest of the week...tomorrow is Grand Prix at Awana, and I'm sure the T & T gang is excited! Then Saturday it's Casting Crowns, can't wait!
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
