The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, May 8, 2013...
Outside my window...the sun has set, and another day is almost done.
I am thinking...about the future. It's in God's hands, but I find myself wondering what He's gonna do next.
I am thankful...for my children and the relationship they have with each other.
I am going...to sleep soon. It's getting late.
I am wearing...my pj's.
I am noticing...how much harder it is to bring my weight down now that I'm getting older. I don't like that.
In the kitchen...I kept it simple: breakfast for lunch, and pasta with shrimp for dinner. I spent the morning washing cars so I was tired.
I am reading...my Bible and a couple of devotions. I haven't picked up a book in awhile.
I am hoping...I can still get tickets to the Mother/Daughter luncheon for this Saturday. I hadn't bought the tickets before because I didn't know if my daughter would have to work. She does, but she doesn't have to go in till 4pm and the luncheon ends at 3.
I am looking forward to...Mother's Day and a little pampering ;-)
I am hearing...the television. Hoarding: Buried Alive is on.
Around the house...the kitchen faucet is not working. It leaks under the sink, and now it won't shut off properly unless I press down hard on it. I'll have to get it replaced.
A favorite quote of the day..."The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver." - Psalm 119:72.
One of my favorite things...friendships with special women who love the Lord.
A few plans for the rest of the week...a trip to Home Depot to get a new faucet; Mother/Daughter luncheon on Saturday.
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
