The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#90~ 9/14/10

For Today...

Outside my window...grey clouds bringing in rain & a cold front. Come on fall weather!!

I am thinking...of all the things I need to get done before I go to work.

I am thankful for...our dear friends who are up from Florida who love us enough to visit us while they're here.

From the kitchen...Hmmm...I'm thinking of Amish French Toast for a brunch. :-P

I am wearing...grey sweat pants & long-sleeved shirt. It's almost time to get out those cold weather hoodies! lol
I am remembering…fun times w/old friends.

I am going…to bathe & trim our dog, Maggie. Little does she know....:-/

I am reading...Bible: Psalms; "The Maker's Diet."

I am hoping...for answered prayers.

On my mind…my mom; hoping that my sweet DH will find a permanent job that will pay him what he was making before his lay-off so that he won't have to worry quite so much.

I am creating...a Christ-centered home.

I am hearing...the washer, typing fingers, radio.

Noticing that…once again, it's the little things in life that mean the most. I noticed the other day how "sweetly" my new Bible (that I got in March) fits in my hands. My other Bibles had been study & chain-reference Bibles...love them, but they are so big. This Bible is easier to take everywhere & just "fits" me. :-)

Pondering these words…"A man w/God is ALWAYS in the majority." ~~John Knox; who brought God's reformation to Scotland.

Around the house...laundry, general picking-up & straightening.

One of my favorite things...when people genuinely enjoy something I've made or cooked.

A Scripture thought...II Timothy 1:12 ~ "Yet I am not ashamed, because I know Whom I have believed." ~~ 'Nuff said! :-)

A few plans for the rest of the week...work, membership class at our church...family time!!!!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

For 12-1/2 yrs we fought the traffic on I-75 everytime we went to church...now THIS is the type of 'traffic jam' we encounter going to our new church! I can deal w/this. :-)

Enjoy other Daybooks at:

  1. I really love your this post it was absolutely awesome great writing i must say..keep it up & God bless you..

  2. wonderful Traffic Jam to encounter while going to church. I will be praying for your husbands job situation! Hope it straightens out soon.

  3. I really enjoyed your thoughts today. I especially liked the one you are creating a Christ Centered Home; that is something that I am always working on in my own life. You must share the recipe for Amish Toast. I love the pictures of the Coaches. Blessings to you! LeAnn

  4. Well Mrs. Kim I'm hoping that you get this comment. I wasn't sure where to post something. LOL. This is Melissa, I met you the other day at your health food store. It was such a pleasure meeting you, I have to say. I really enjoyed our talk. The website I spoke of is www.MyNaturalMarket.com this is where I got the garden of life supplements cheaper. I hope your enjoying the maker's diet book. I loved it, what a testimony. I'm sure I will see you soon. I have class on Tuesdays and Thursday so I may stop in next Tuesday around 1:15. Email and please let me know that you received this if you would. Great to meet you. mconnine@yahoo.com

  5. Yum! I love French Toast I'll have to try your recipe. Great Post!

  6. That's my kind of traffic jam!! As always I was blessed during my visit to your blog. Thank you for sharing with us!!

  7. Kim,

    Loved your daybook thoughts . . .

    Sending prayers to your husband . . .

    French toast sounds good, and I think I could also deal with the "traffic jam" that you showed in your picture thought. :)

    Blessings to you,

    -Lady Rose

  8. I read The Maker's Diet a few years ago. I found it to be thought provoking and challenging. Cutting pork from our diets was the most challenging thing for us, and it went to the way-side when my husband lost his job last fall. What do you think about it? Have you tried it?

  9. Kendra ~ I take all those things w/a grain of salt (no pun intended ~ lol). My DH is a meat-n-potatoes man who was raised on a cattle & hog farm, I think he'd rather give up watching Ohio State Buckeyes football than give up his pork chops! lol But I do see the validity to limiting pork...and other Biblically unclean-type foods like shrimp, lobster, crab, scallops...all the seafood that I like. :-/ The best book I've EVER read regarding life-style & diet changes is "What the Bible Says About Healthy Living" by Dr. Rex Russell; you can find my review of it by clicking on the 'REVIEW' category. It truly is the most sensible, do-able advice I've ever read, all backed up by scripture.

    "The Maker's Diet" is a great book, but we must understand that this man had many, many health problems...he miraculously found what works for himself & can work for many others, but remember that HE was dying. Admittedly, I was mostly interested in what he had to say about essential oiles & herbs.

    Thanks SO VERY MUCH for stopping by!! I hope you come back soon. I'm looking forward to getting our PC back so that I don't have to bug my friends who graciously allow me to take a peek at my blog on theirs!

    Blessings from Ohio...Kim<><
