The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, May 2, 2013...
Outside my window...the sun is trying to peek out from behind the clouds. If the weather forecast is right, the clouds will win and we'll be getting more rain.
I am thinking...today is the National Day of Prayer. What are you praying for?
I am thankful...that our God is such a Mighty and Awesome God, He can hear each and every prayer.
I am going...to have fun with my son today. It's Take Your Child To Work Day, and I work right here at home.
I am wearing...my jammies. That will change shortly.
I am noticing...how early our rainy season started this year. It usually starts mid-May, but this year we started getting thunderstorms in April. Wonder what that'll mean for the summer.
In the kitchen...I will be cooking with my son E. We'll make pancakes for breakfast, then his favorite meal, white rice with ground beef. Simple yet comforting.
I am reading...my Bible and nothing else. I've been sewing lately and haven't picked up a book in days.
I am hoping...this on again off again headache will just go off. My sinuses have been affected by the rain and it causes me to feel headachy.
I am looking forward to...spending this day showing my son how busy Mom's day gets.
I am hearing...our dog Molly settling back down. She must not be feeling herself today. She hasn't touched her breakfast.
Around the house...there's laundry to be done, and my bedroom could use a good dusting.
A favorite quote of the day..."If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." - 2 Chronicles 7:14
One of my favorite things...spending time in the kitchen making yummy goodies.
A few plans for the rest of the week...other than church, nothing much. My daughter is a bridesmaid in a wedding on Saturday, but it's a small affair and she's the only one invited. With all the rain I can't barbecue so we'll be staying indoors most of the time.
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
