Simple Woman's Daybook

For today: Sunday, January 24, 2010

Outside my window: It is sunny and warm.

I am thinking: how very blessed I am.

Counting blessings....
24. Respite from pain.
25. Falling into a routine.
26. Full bellies.
27. Appliances that work properly.
28. Good friends.
29. The hope found only in Christ.
30. Fresh inspiration from God's Word.
31. A wonderful vehicle.
32. Contented children.
33. Kind and thoughtful words.
34. Sunshine.
35. Respite from rain.

From the learning rooms: hoping that we are on the tail end of some mighty challenges, I am endeavoring to this week, just get back to the basics in grammar/phonics, math and reading.

From the kitchen: Chicken Bundles and Applesauce.

I am creating: a plan to incorporate monthly scripture readings at suppertime. Inspiration to try this was found at

I am going: to finish putting lunch together and fix coffee.

I am reading: a novel by Craig Parshall and am going to begin to A Long Obedience in the Same Direction by Eugene Peterson.

I am hearing: Ira and the kids digging through the lego box and S singing.

Some of my favorite things: reading, coffee, a massage.

A few plans for this week: Continue personal devotions, exercise daily, get back to homeschooling.

Spiritual Motivation: become increasingly aware of my thoughts, both the sum of them and the direction they are heading. Also, come to more quickly lay aside all thoughts and thought patterns that fall short of God's truth. I want to daily take on more of the mind of Christ.

My memory verse for this week: Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
Trust in the LORD forever,
For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.
