Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY... January 18th, 2010 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Outside my window... temperatures will be hovering around 70 degrees all week. A far cry from the couple of weeks of freezing temps. We are looking forward to some time outside.
I am thinking... about Haiti. We spent an hour last night listening to people who were there on a mission trip, we saw footage of a documentary they were taping when the earthquake actually happened and the testimony of how God delivered them all safely.
I am thankful for... the wonderful gift of laughter. Following the NewMissions presentation we laughed for over a solid hour, my sides are sore this morning.
I am wearing... jammies. Later, I'm planning to wear a skirt and top.
I am remembering... the stories my mother told me about black and white schools, water fountains, and restaurants and I am glad that my children will never know a time like that.
I am going... to a scrapbook co-op and tea party this afternoon.
I am currently reading... the same three books I've listed for the last 3 weeks. Not too much time for reading, but the turtle won the race.
I am hoping... to finish the bedrooms upstairs. We are still missing items from moving three rooms last week. We need more order and less frustration. I am also hoping that my older boys have chosen good classes and teachers for this semester; school starts tomorrow.
On my mind... the huge amount of ministry that is taking place in Haiti. Great things are happening there and to Him be all the glory.
Noticing that... I am not moving too quickly on my 100 photos project. I'm planning to change that this week.
Pondering these words... nothing happens without God knowing it. He is not surprised by anything, even when we are.
From the kitchen... more stir-fry. I think we eat this everyday, and I never tire of it.
Around the house... catching up, cleaning out, and making lists 1)a load of dirt delivered 2)septic tank pumped out 3)driveway scrubbed 4)windows done (this lists never ends)
One of my favorite things~ clouds flying across a full moon during a bitterly cold night
From my picture journal... stir-fry on any given night
