The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#149~ 1/24/12
For Today . . .
Outside my window . . . a blue tarp. Beyond that, it's gray & c-c-cold.
I am thinking . . . about errands I need to run.
I am thankful . . . for being able to get a huge home repair done.
In the kitchen . . . bread baking day. Chicken & stir-fried veggies later on.
I am wearing . . . jeans, rust-colored thermal Old Navy shirt, wool socks. It's COLD!
I am creating . . . a peaceful, Christ-centered home.
I am going . . . to run some errands, get as much done around the house as I can before I go to work.
I am wondering . . . about doing the Daniel Fast.
I am reading . . . Bible: This week's assignments for The Story are in Daniel & Jeremiah.
I am hoping . . . a certain relationship w/an extended family member will have to come to an end. "If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone." ~Romans 12:18. Unfortunately, sometimes "living at peace" with someone means severing the strings. :-(
I am looking forward to . . . the possibility of some day-time hours at work!
I am learning . . . not to rush a good thing.
Around the house . . . a new roof; banging & pounding . . . driving Maggie the dog crazy. :-/
One of my favorite things . . . laughing & talking about wonderful family memories.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family time, work, home repairs, cleaning house, Sunday worship w/the saints.
A favorite quote for the day . . . "Christianity is NOT a 'self-help religion;' it IS about FORGIVENESS of sin & a RELATIONSHIP with & IDENTITY in Jesus Christ. I am NOT worthless BECAUSE Jesus Christ died for ME!" ~from Sunday's sermon.
Scripture thought . . . "I will show the holiness of My great Name, which has been profaned among the nations, the Name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Sovereign LORD, when I show Myself holy through you before their eyes." ~Ezekiel 36:20-21
A peek into my day . . .
The view outside my window as the roof is being replaced.
