The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#157~ 6/18/12
For today . . .
Outside my window . . . terrible over-night thunder storms & torrential rain, & gray morning clouds have given-way to lovely blue skies, sunshine & lovely green leafy trees blowing in the breeze.
I am thinking . . . things I want to do to our house.
I am thankful . . . 1) for dear friends who will ride their motorcycle for 2 hours when it should have taken an hour, in the rain, stopping as they needed under under-passes, just to come & see us on a Sunday evening. 2) For my sweet Daddy. I miss him everyday. 3) For my sweet hubby ~ THE Man. Our girls are as blessed with him as their daddy as I was with mine.
From the kitchen . . . asiago cheese bagels. :-P
I am wearing . . . a gauzy, tie-died summer dress from Florida.
I am creating . . . a peaceful, Christ-centered home.
I am going . . . to putter around the house & then go to work ~ Monday's late shift.
I am wondering . . . if my fleece is really wet? (Mark 9:23-24)
I am hoping . . . that DD#1 will enjoy her new apt.
I am reading . . . "Cowards" by Glenn Beck. Please read this before the election!!! 50 pages of footnotes, incredible information that no one else is telling us.
I am looking forward to . . . a new president.
I am learning . . . to lead . . . like the old saying goes: the view only changes for the lead dog.
Around the house . . . laundry, sweeping, dusting . . . cleaning up from a busy weekend. I think THE Man had a great Father's Day.
One of my favorite things . . . the look of a sort of mix of primitive/shabby chic/northwoods cabin decor.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family, work, waiting to see if I'm on the praise team 2 weeks in a row or not til next week, reading, writing an article & devotion . . .
A favorite quote for the day . . ."Who will the Holy Spirit allow me to love that I was unwilling to love yesterday? Who will the Holy Spirit allow me to forgive that I was unwilling to forgive yesterday?" ~from Sunday's Sermon.
Scripture thought . . ."'If I can?'" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes." Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!" ~Mark 9:23-24
