The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#134~ 9/20/11
For Today . . .
Outside my window . . . grey, post-rain skies. Sun trying to peek out.
I am thinking . . . that I hope this Daybook entry doesn't depress readers; but I'm sure you understand. The Daybook is a peek at what's going on in our lives & this is where I am today. . .
I am thankful for . . . 1) answered prayer that my mother's passing was so sweetly peaceful; 2) that I was blessed to be holding her had & stroking her head & face as she slipped into Glory; 3) that my brother was calm & quiet while she passed.
From the kitchen . . . take-out, not cooking today; maybe Chinese.
I am wearing . . . jeans, black tank top w/gray "Lakeside" t-shirt hoodie.
I am creating . . . a peaceful, Christ-centered home.
I am going . . . to pick DD#2 up from work & run some errands.
I am wondering . . . what my parents' reunion was like. I hope the Lord let my Daddy escort my mom to His Throne.
I am reading . . . "The Story" ~ our church is going through the Bible w/this book as our guide. In 31 weeks we will have gone through the Bible in chronological order, read in book form; all levels of Sunday Schools & Wednesday night Bible studies will all be doing studies that correspond w/the series. So far, it's been really good, deep study. I believe "The Story" was partially put together by Max Lucado.
I am hoping . . . that Mother's viewing & funeral will go well, that my brother will remain calm.
I am looking forward . . . to Heaven.
I am hearing . . . the radio, typing fingers, birds singing outside.
Around the house . . . a royal mess! lol It's been a loooong 2 weeks between my mom being in the hospital & then Hospice. No one has been home except to shower & change clothes.
One of my favorite things . . . knowing that my parents always went to bed telling each other they love the other & holding hands until they fell asleep.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . saying "good-bye for now" to my mother.
Pondering these words . . . "God has spoken, EVERYTHING else is commentary."
Scripture thought . . . "Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds & glorify God on the day He visits us." ~I Peter 2:12
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . .
