The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, March 12, 2013...
Outside my window...it's pitch dark. Now that the time has sprung forward, 7am looks like it's the middle of the night.
I am thinking...did I do something wrong on my income tax? Is that why I haven't gotten my refund yet after almost 4 weeks?
I am thankful...to my God, that even without this refund we have money to pay bills and food in our pantry.
I am going...to take my son to school, then get my haircut.
I am wearing...my jammies. I'm making breakfast for my youngest son and I, then I'll get dressed.
I am noticing...that our dog Molly hasn't adjusted to the time change. She ignored her breakfast this morning. Must be too early.
In the kitchen...smothered pork chops and buttered noodles.
I am reading...my Bible and nothing more. I've got to get back to my book.
I am hoping...my income tax refund isn't being held because I messed up on my return.
I am looking forward to...the presentation at church this Saturday, The Story - The Musical. It's the story of the Bible, which is the story of Jesus. Perfect for this month of Easter.
I am hearing...my son getting ready for school while he watches Animaniacs.
Around the house...I got as much done yesterday as I could, but I need to clean the bathrooms.
A favorite quote of the day... “We may be statistics and numbers as far as the world’s computers are concerned, but we are precious individuals as far as our Shepherd is concerned. He knows his sheep personally.” - Warren Wiersbe.
One of my favorite things...getting my hair washed and scalped massaged by my hair stylist.
A few plans for the rest of the week...my haircut today, follow-up dentist visit for my daughter and Awana tomorrow, hopefully a trip to the mall to get my son some pants since he's growing by leaps and bounds, the play at church on Saturday. Busy week for me, folks.
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
