Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... January 28, 2014

Outside my window... it is a cloudy, but warm, 72 degrees.

I am thinking... that, when it has been a really long time since posting, a Daybook post seems like a really good place to start.

I am thankful... for a community of prayer partners. People that love my family and pray hard - every minute that I spend with my Dad - that I live only a 10 minute ride, through the forest, from my parents.

In the kitchen... chili, the same recipe I learned to make in college. Taught to me by a childhood friend, thanks Ellen! And that was a long time ago.

I am wearing... jeans, a sweatshirt (because it is cold in my house, not outside) and flip flops.

I am creating... fabric blocks, quilts - in my mind, and a knitted coffee cozy.

I am going... to a 4-H meeting tonight and a dentist appointment tomorrow morning.

I am wondering... if I could find a new television series to watch. Something I could go back to episode one and watch, no waiting for the next episode and no commercials.

I am reading... The Help, since October. Reading is too difficult right now, my mind is just too scattered.

I am hoping... that the cancer treatment and study my dad is beginning this week will lead to a miracle.

I am looking forward to... all the time I am spending with my parents.

I am learning... to be still and know that He is God. His ways are not our ways and His timing is perfect.

Around the house... things are messy and I wish I was preparing a garden.

I am pondering... quilts in a new book, that I just bought.

A favorite quote for today... When the enemy starts knocking, on a door you closed long ago, you just say, "Jesus, it's for you." (sorry, I don't know the source)

One of my favorite things... when my husband remembers to turn on my bed warmer before I'm ready for bed.

A few plans for the rest of the week: not making too many plans right now, just taking life day by day.

A peek into my day...

Thank you Peggy for the Simple Woman's Daybook {follow links to read more}.

My sweet friend, it is so good to see you post! I think of you often and pray for you and your family!

Sending you hugs my friend!

Good to see you posting again, Lisa!

I pray your dad's treatments go well. How blessed you are to live so close!

Hope you find something to watch. Right now, we are watching LOST on netflix, one right after the other. I guess we may be the only ones who didn't see it back in 2004 ....

Anyway you might find an old series on netflix that you haven't seen before.

You are not the only one that hasn't seen lost. I haven't seen it either, didn't think I would like it. Thanks for the suggestion, need to research that.
