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 . . .

Together again.

  1. So sweet! There aren't many words to say...praying for you and your family.

  2. No these words did not depress me...they showed me how much you loved your parents...and the kind of life you had growing up.

    It's truly a tribute to your parents. Plus gives us more opportunity how to pray for you at this time.


  3. What a sweet photo. What a lovely couple. And what a lovely daughter the union produced. Know you are loved and blessed. Let go and let God. We are holding you and your family in our prayers.

  4. Not depressing at all Kim. Very thoughtful, sweet and tender. Loved reading it! Thank you.

    Praying for your brother.
