The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#118~ 4/12/11
For Today . . .
Outside my window . . . dreary, cold & windy w/long-awaited signs of new life. After our 84* Sunday & rain on Monday, there has been an explosion of new green leaves along w/white, yellow, pink & deep pink buds. The atmosphere, outside, is a little odd ~ gray up above & oddly clear below. Hard to describe.
I am thinking . . . of my sweet husband who started his new job 1-1/2 hrs away; hoping he acclimates well & trusting the Lord to keep him safe & his car working well on his long commute.
I am thankful for . . . my hubbie's new job! Thank You, Lord! It's been such a long 2 yrs.
From the kitchen . . . Amish French Toast! :-P
I am wearing . . . jeans & a black shirt.
I am remembering . . . that one of my oldest friends (I've known her & her sisters since I was 5) came into the store yesterday. It was SO very good to see her & her husband. What wonderful times we had when we were kids. Ahhh . . . those were the days!
I am hoping . . . & trusting the Lord for continued answered prayer. Mostly that I can understand His time-line. Ha!
I am creating . . . a peaceful, Christ-centered home. I think I might trade-out some of my antique/reproduction tin collection. I have some seasonal tins that need to come out while some others get put away for a little while.
I am hearing . . . the radio, the washer & dryer, DD#2 puttering around as she gets ready for work, typing fingers, wind whipping by the window . . .
I am noticing . . . that yesterday's post, "It's the Little Things that Matter Most," seemed to have struck a chord w/several people. I received several e-mails & Facebook private messages about it. Thank you, to all who read, were touched & said such nice things. And thanks to the Lord for being used for His purposes.
Around the house . . . general pick up, laundry, giving Maggie a little trim around her eyes, practicing Easter music . . .
One of my favorite things . . . seeing old friends or extended family members that I haven't seen in years & remembering all the wonderful history we have together.
Plans for the week . . . family time, work, worship practice, Easter music practice, Sunday worship w/the saints!
Pondering these words . . . "When people see me, do they see an authentic Christian? Do they see Jesus?" ~ from Sunday's Sermon.
Scripture thought . . . ~I John 3:3-4, 9-10 ~ "First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing & following their own evil desires. They will say, 'Where is this "coming" He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation' . . . The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient w/you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . .
