The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#106~ 1/18/11
Outside my window...dreary grey skies, rain, melting snow...which will turn to ice tonight w/more snow on top tomorrow. Lovely to drive in...not!
I am thinking...of how courage mixes w/faith.
I am thankful for...the blessing that our family is still so tight, that we have clung together in the stresses of the past almost 2 yrs of financial loss, instead of letting it drive us apart.
From the kitchen...whipping up a batch of laundry detergent, & then Amish French toast for lunch.
I am wearing...jeans, my favorite Old Navy thermal shirt.
I am remembering...that God is still on His throne & I am His epistle here on earth.
I am going...to go to work later this afternoon.
I am reading...Bible; other blogs...I have a new book on order. :-)
I am hoping...for answered pray beyond measure for Joanne, a young, seemingly healthy 37 yr old homeschool mom who suddenly had a massive stroke on the 11th. Please keep Joanne, her loving husband, 2 young daughters, parents & extended family & friends in your prayers; & healing & wisdom for the Dr's & nurses. You can keep up w/her progress as her husband up-dates her blog by clicking on her name, above.
I am creating...a peaceful, Christ-centered home.
I am hearing...the radio, the dryer, typing fingers, the occasional raindrops hitting the windows & falling on the roof.
I am noticing...that the Lord seems to be telling me to act upon the desires of my heart, but I'm at a loss as to where to start. I'm praying for wisdom & clarification b/c I'm obviously too blind & deaf to see & hear where He's pointing to! :-/
Around the house...picking up the last of the Christmas decorations (yep...you read that correctly!), over-all house picking up stuff.
One of my favorite things...the light at the end of the tunnel. :-)
Plans for the week...family time, work, a writing project, submitting the devotional I write for our church's weekly newsletter, planning a project...
Pondering these words..."The Christian life isn't about 'what's in it for me', but about 'how can I reach the world w/the Gospel?'" ~ from Sunday's sermon.
Scripture thought...Phillippians 1:27 ~ "Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ."
Here is a picture that I am sharing with you...
