The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#124~ 6/14/11

For Today . . .

Outside my window . . .
a little hazy, but the sun is shining & will soon burn off the haze. Pleasantly cool for this time of year.

I am thinking . . .
of all I need to accomplish today.

I am thankful for . . . my hubby's heath ~ that our little emergency last Thursday was NOT a heart-attack. A ripped muscle isn't easy, but it's a much more favorable out-come than heart problems! The Lord is SO good.

From the kitchen . . .
for whatever reason, Tuesday seems to be Bread Baking Day. :-)

I am wearing . . .
jeans, turquoise blue "Lakeside" top.

I am remembering . . . one of the funniest & truest pieces of advice my Daddy ever gave me: "Daddy, what do you do when you know you have to face something hard, when you're about to walk into a tough situation?" "Just tuck your butt-cheeks together & walk on!" I have used that advice many, many times in my life. lol Oh, I miss my Daddy. <3

I am hoping . . .
for peace & comfort for my mom.

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

I am hearing . . . radio, Maggie barking at the neighbors as they buzz down a tree . . . NOT the most peaceful combo.

I am noticing . . .
that my hair grows so fast! One day my hair will look pretty & simply do what I want it to do . . . & the next, all of a sudden it's too long. Well, at least I HAVE hair. :-)

Around the house . . . baking, weeding, laundry, general cleaning.

One of my favorite things
. . . "worn," distressed, primitive looking cabinets in a kitchen. Hopefully, I'll be distressing mine soon.

Plans for this week . . . family time, work, worship practice, doing a few assessments for those wonderful homeschoolers (I miss those days), Sunday worship w/the saints.

Pondering these words . . . It's a surrender of my will, to the Holy Spirit, NOT to sin . . . EVERYDAY!!!! When I blow it, I repent, ask the Lord for forgiveness & start over. {My thoughts on a point made during a sermon.}

Scripture thought . . . ~Romans 6:13-14 ~
"Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; & offer the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace."

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

My old modeling days.
