The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#107~ 1/25/11

For Today...

Outside my window...
snow & cold! The sun tried to come out & play a while ago but was defeated by the gray clouds.

I am thinking...
that the Lord's timing clearly is not my own & I must need a hint as to what sort of lesson I'm supposed to be learning. lol But I KNOW that things will always work out for my, & my family's (Romans 8:28), good & that I will be able to help others who will travel down the same road (II Cor. 1:3-4).

I am thankful for...
an active memory which enables me to mentally 'take out' my Scroll of Remembrance (Malachi 3:16-18) & remember how powerfully the Lord has worked, is working & will work in my life! Thank You, Lord!

From the kitchen...bread in the oven...hoping that it gets a decent rise in spite of our cold, humid weather. Went to the farm stores this morning & got my brown eggs, farm milk & peppered bacon. The car 'ice-skated' the whole way through the un-salted country roads. What a great adventure!

I am wearing...
jeans, pink thermal shirt w/thumb holes (LOVE that!) under my black work t-shirt, warm socks.

I am remembering...playing in the snow w/our dogs. All through my life our dogs have loved playing w/us in the snow. Is it the snow that's so much fun for them or simply enjoying who they were playing with?

I am going...
to go to work later today. Already spent most of the day running errands...in & out as various things have come up.

I am reading...
Bible; my book I ordered hasn't come in yet.

I am hoping...& remembering to wait EXPECTANTLY on answered prayer! (Heb. 11:1)

I am creating...
a peaceful, Christ-centered home. A haven of rest & love for my family & friends.

I am hearing...
the radio, the washer & dryer...listening for the buzzer on the oven to tell me that the bread has risen & it's time to bake it.

I am noticing...that as much as I truly enjoy the smaller Bible I received last year, that I wish it had the more thorough Concordance that my old Bible had.

Around the house...
honestly, I'm not the best of house-keepers who ever lived. June Cleaver, I'm not. But my house is decent & 'homey.' The best compliment that anyone visiting my home can pay me is that my home is 'homey' & they feel comfortable & at home when they visit.

One of my favorite things...
standing outside during a night-time snow fall. It's SO quiet.

Plans for the week...
family time, work, making a point to check in on my mom more, Sunday worship w/the saints!

Pondering these words...
"When people see Christians, they SHOULD see something/someone different than what the world offers!...We are not functioning for the Kingdom until we are sharing the love Jesus in practical ways." ~ from Sunday's Sermon.

Scripture thought...Malachi 3:14-18 ~
"'You have said, "It is futile to serve God. What did we gain by carrying out His requirements & going about like mourners before the LORD Almighty? But now we call the arrogant blessed. Certainly the evil-doers prosper, & even those who challenge God escape."'

"Then those who feared the LORD talked w/each other, & the LORD listened & heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in His presence concerning those who feared the LORD & honored His Name.

"'They will be mine,' says the LORD Almighty, 'in the day when I make up My treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves
him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous & the wicked, between those who serve God & those who do not.'" [All emphasis mine ~ KW<><]

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

Our back yard during a night-time snow storm last year.

  1. I enjoyed reading your post today. There was something in it that God wanted me to see and the music was a blessing. Thanks!

  2. Enjoyed this post and I like the music you have here. What is it?

  3. Thanks, Sandy & Mitzi! So thrilled that you visited.

    Mitzi ~ the 1st song is Ashokan Farewell, it was the theme song to Ken Burns' PBS Civil War series, years ago. I love it. You can see the rest of my music if you scroll down to nearly the bottom & check out my Playlist.

  4. Hi Kim,
    Loved reading about your home and Christ-centered day-such an encouragement to me! You were in my thoughts as we drove through Northern Ohio-we were gone a little longer than expected-hope to post soon. As always, I now have to catch up on things as I'm decorating the shop for Valentines Day. It calls for a few late nights. Have a wonderful day! With Love from the Cabin, Claudia
