The Simple Women's Daybook ~#160~ 7/16/12

For Today . . . 

Outside my window . . . beautiful sunny day. Had a little rain last night & it is truly amazing how the Lord causes the smallest amount of water to green-up the lawns & the surrounding corn & bean fields. Thank You, Lord.

I am thinking . . . about how much fun I had with our DDs last night. Went to DD#1's apt where she made-up DD#2 & then took outdoor photos of her. Listening to them laugh while "playing" in the make-up was music to my ears.

I am thankful . . . that my family loves me so much. For a church where our pastors lovingly preach on the hard subjects.

From the kitchen . . . Faccacia bread with Asiago cheese. :-P

I am wearing . . . brown capris, brown/white/green shirt.

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

I am going . . . to work later this afternoon.

I am wondering . . . why an extended family member insists on burning bridge after bridge & then deludes themselves into thinking that the reason no one wants to be around them is everyone else's fault.

I am hoping . . . for the salvation of that extended family member.

I am reading . . . Bible: 1 Peter.

I am looking forward to . . . being off work on Wednesday! Ha!

I am learning . . . more & more that CHOOSING not to ruin one's life & CHOOSING to accept Jesus as your Savior is just that ~ a CHOICE. Watching someone destroy him/herself is heart-breaking.

Around the house . . . general pick-up around the house.

One of my favorite things . . . watching my children's lives blossom. And having music on my blog again. Woohoo!

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family time, work, worship practice, doing a few homeschool assessments, working on an article for The Christian Women's Voice magazine & a devotion for the church newsletter, Sunday worship with the saints.

A favorite quote for the day . . . "Jesus Christ is telling the world who He is through our marriages" ~from Sunday's sermon . . . . . . .

Scripture thought . . . "'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be untied with his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' This is a profound mystery ~ but I am talking about Christ and the church." ~Ephesians 5:31-32

A picture thought for you . . . 
 Irish cottage window. So Homey. I think it's very "The Quiet Man"-ish.

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><


  1. Great photo and entry.

    The family member. Some delude themselves because deep in their hearts they deem themselves not worthy of love and relationships. Therefore to lay the blame on others takes the responsibility out of their hands and their reach and puts it in the hands of others. So they have no ability to "fix" the relationship, it is not their "fault". In other words the "victim" stance.

    Nice music! God bless.

    1. "The victim" ~ you are exactly right. :-/

      I'm so glad you like the music!


  2. Kim, I have a similar situation among our childre. We are having our annual family reunion and we have one son and his family that cause struggles with the others. I am praying mightily that Satan will be bound and that guardian angels will surround us so we can get through the next few days.
    It has been very hot and dry here also. We have had rain off and on over the last few days and it feels so good; and lawns are looking greenier.
    Yes, I desire just like you a Christ-centered home. I hope our posterity will feel the spirit in our home and that there will be peace among our children. We have 31 grandchildren and they seem to get a long well; so we are doing a lot of cousin bonding activities.
    Blessings and hugs!

    1. I so hope your family reunion goes well. My mom's side of the family always had a big reunion ~ my mom was the "baby" of 14 children & I am the "baby" of 52 grandchildren. We always had so much fun. Since my mom passed in September & 1 of her sisters passed Memorial Day wkend, there's only 1 sister left of the 14. It truly seems that an era has passed.

      31 grandchildren! How blessed you are!
