The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#93~ 10/12/10

For Today...

Outside my window...
beautiful, sunny, fall day! We've just hit our height of color so I'm enjoying the beauty of my favorite season while I can.

I am thinking...
of the things I need to do before I go to work.

I am thankful for...
my hard-working, loving, Christian husband. <3

From the kitchen...baking another loaf of flaxseed bread & making laundry detergent.

I am wearing...
jeans & another favorite hoodie from my 'Lakeside' collection.

I am remembering...
how busy our house used to be when the girls were little & we were deep into our homeschool year by now...school work, field trips, ballet, gym...I think I miss it all more than they do! '-)

I am going...to go to work later today. We should be getting in our organic mineral make up line this week & I'm excited! You can take the girl out of the make-up artistry business, but you can't take the make-up artist out of the girl! I LOVE to play in all that color. :-)

I am reading...
Bible: Psalms; & when I have the time: "Jenna's Cowboy", Christian fiction.

I am hoping...
once again, for my DH to find a great job.

On my mind...I am waiting, expectantly, on answered prayer! :-)

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

I am hearing...
radio, typing fingers, the rustling of leaves blowing in the wind outside my window.

Noticing that...
the wooly worms around here are almost completely black! Yikes! That means a very cold winter. :-/

Pondering these words..."If you pray & aren't waiting expectantly on the answer...then why pray?" ~Kim Wolf<>< :-)

Around the house...
general pick up, laundry...I need to take the scissors to Maggie's shagginess (the dog...not a daughter! lol).

One of my favorite things...
rich, fall color.

Scripture thought...Eph. 6:19-20 ~ "Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."

Plans for the rest of the week...
as much family time as possible, work, trying to make time to go the cemetery to put flowers on Jessica's grave for her 25th b-day...can't believe she would be 25 on Friday! Wow.

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

I designed Jessica's stone, myself. It has a little lamb on one corner & a cross w/dogwoods on the other (covered by the flowers), w/Matt. 5:8 across the top.

  1. As usual I feel the spirit of your words and I always love your quotes. The grave stone is beautiful.
    Blessings to you!

  2. I was thinking... As I clicked to your blog that I like the feeling I get when I check it out. The beautiful music, the soap recipies, and different things you post. I feel at home, in a strange sort of way. Just thought I 'd share that with you. I don't always comment, but I enjoy your blog. :)

    The gravestone is beautiful. Beautiful and sorrowful. Praying for you!


  3. Hello Sweet Kim,
    What a wonderful blog, I am blessed that you wrote to me. I read your story about Jessica. What a testimony of Gods love, and your faith. I look forward to returning and enjoying your journal of life and love.
    May God bless your family Big Time
    A big southern hug from
