For Today . . .
Outside my window . . . dark, clear, starry, starry night; the coolness of fall is creeping in. I love it.
I am thankful . . . for being able to take just a little bit of the financial burden off of THE Man's shoulders while he is laid off. I'm also thankful for a great interview he had last week.
I am thinking . . . about an answer I'm hoping to get in the next few days. :-)
From the kitchen . . . meat loaf and noodles.
I am wearing . . . gray sweat pants and a heather-gold hoodie.
I am creating . . . a peaceful, CHRIST-centered home.
I am going . . . to go to bed soon ~ I'm beat.
I am wondering . . . how the Lord will answer our prayers.
I am hoping . . . that we will be thrilled with the answer.
I am looking forward to . . . getting started.
I am learning . . . that the Lord moves the hearts of man.
About the house . . . drain unplugged, sink and dishwasher are usable again. Yippee!
I am pondering . . . when to change ~ full-time ~ to a local church; the one we go to now ~ and love ~ is 45 minutes away. We need to find one closer to home.
I am reading . . . "Sacred Marriage" by Gary Thomas for women's Bible study starting this week.
One of my favorite things . . . days like yesterday. For Labor Day, we and several dear brothers and sisters in the Lord met at some friends' farm and had a truly wonderful day . . . sweet fellowship, carry-in food, gorgeous weather, horseshoes, beanbag toss, Apples-to-Apples game, s'mores around the fire, great conversation and lots of laughs. Yep . . . great day.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family time, work, Bible study, anticipating answered prayer.
A favorite quote for the day . . . The 1st chapter of Nehemiah end with his saying, "I was cupbearer to the king." (Neh. 1:11[b]) I am as much "a cupbearer" as he was; I am not important to the world's leaders . . . BUT . . . I am important to God. I am His servant set in place to serve and lead those within my sphere of influence, to Him. (Notes from Sunday's sermon)
Scripture thought . . . "O Lord, let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant . . . " ~Neh. 1:11(a)
