The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#144~ 11/29/11

For Today . . .

Outside my window . . .
rain, rain & more rain . . . oh . . . & gray skies.

I am thinking . . .
some home improvements/repairs going on today. I'm trying not to be nervous while all the hammering & banging is going on. (chewing finger nails)

I am thankful for . . . FINALLY being able to do these home improvements. Praise the LORD! And for being able to listen to our dear friend preach his 1st sermon last Sunday.

From the kitchen . . .
bread baking day. Hoping it will rise alright ~ bread tends not to rise as well on raining days.

I am wearing . . .
jeans, brown & pink sweater/shirt, socks.

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

I am going . . .
to take DD#2 to work, pick up the ceramic tiles for the bathroom, work on a devotion, do laundry, go to work.

I am wondering . . .
how long will Maggie keep barking at the repair man?

I am reading . . . The Story & The Heart of the Story for church & Sunday school; & just started Being George Washington by Glenn Beck. It is AWESOME! I wish I would have had this when we were still homeschooling the high school years.

I am hoping . . .
that my brother will accept Jesus as his Savior, SOON.

I am looking forward to . . .
THE Man's up-coming 50th birthday!

I am hearing . . . the radio, the repair man doing his work; Maggie is in her cage & has now settled down to an occasional "yip" instead of incessant barking. :-/

Around the house . . .
trying to stay out of the repair man's way, unending laundry, general pick-up around the house.

One of my favorite things . . .
the satisfaction of a completed task well done.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family time, work, painting, putting up CHRISTmas decorations, practice for the CHRISTmas in the Village community event that our friend "P", THE Man & I are singing in on Dec. 4th.

Pondering these words . . .
"Wisdom is 1) the application of knowledge & 2) seeing things from God's point of view & applying it." ~from Sunday's sermon.

Scripture thought . . . ". . . live a life worthy of the LORD & . . . please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened w/all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance & patience, & joyfully giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness & brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." ~Colossians 1:10-14 [emphasis mine]

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

{Any day w/new shoes is a good day!}

Read 100's of other Daybooks at the Simple Woman's Daybook!

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><


  1. I love getting this glimpse through the window of your day, Kim. Sounds like things are moving right along. Stay well, my friend ~ thank you for sharing your heart :)

  2. I love CHRISTmas! Wasn't it raining last week when you were making bread? Hope all goes well. It is hard when a loved one is not saved! We will be praying! We too are finally getting some painting and new carpet. It's been 10 years! Very exciting but very s*l*o*wwwww. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following! Hope you have a blessed day!

  3. Saturday when we had our holiday dinner I had the bread machine working when they started to arrive...Well ...when 7 Grandchildren in a tiny kitchen giving out hugs and kisses and bouncing around.. even bread in a machine can fail...I laughed so hard when one of the older GRANDS looked at the bread machine and saw the time remaining and said "we have to wait" and then the bread fell ...Oh poor babies...lol
