Simply Woman's Daybook 10-23-12

FOR TODAY October 23, 2012

Outside my window... There is a gentle breeze, the leaves are swirling and dancing, the fields are a crisp green and the sun is warming the day up to 70 degrees!

I am thinking... About the needs in my family, my church, my community and my world.  I feel so very small and inadequate.

I am thankful... For the daily blessings God grants me.  I am overwhelmed with His endless grace.

In the kitchen... I'm am making cookie dough and buckeye cookies to freeze to get a head start on holiday baking.

I am wearing...Jeans, flip flops and my 4-H t-shirt.

I am creating... the lesson plan for the art class I teach our homeschool group.

I am going... to take my little girl to a new doctor today.  She may have strep throat and I have been wanting to check out this new pediatrician.

I am wondering... how my son is doing on this fieldtrip without me since I am home with my little girl

I am reading... Grace For the Good Girl by Freeman, A Hunger For God by Piper

I am hoping... that my daughter will get well soon and that I will feel comfortable with this pediatrician.

I am looking forward to... getting together with a dear friend and her family this weekend.

I am learning... that revival in my life can never grow stagnant.  I must never grow content in my relationship with Christ.

Around the house... I smell fresh fall air, I hear the washer going, opera playing and my daughter playing.

I am pondering... why on earth He chose me.  Why bless me with tremendous abundance when there are so, so many others much more deserving than I.

A favorite quote for today... "Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad and a soul that never loses faith in God."

One of my favorite things... fall leaves taking flight, hardwood floors that declare the footsteps of many before me, an exquisitely trained soprano voice.

A few plans for the rest of the week: making snacks for Cubbies, another fieldtrip to the Maltz Museum, getting together with our small group from church and dinner with one of our precious pastor's and his family.

A New Day

It has been quite a while since I wrote anything for this blog.  There are multiple reasons for that and maybe I will get into it all at a later date.  I have had a desire to resume blogging now for several weeks, but alas, time has not allowed.  So many things have changed and new trials and tests have come, that it seems almost impossible to figure out where to begin.  Soon, I hope, I will be able to carve out a brief moment of time to fill in the gaps.  I just rest knowing that God is good and I am richly blessed!
