A Simple Woman's Daybook
So this is the Simple Woman's Daybook---Autumn Version.
Outside my window... We have high heat clouds, and humidity. I know a secret, we have a storm coming and cooler below normal temps next week.
I am thinking... Of all of the good things I forget when I am so wrapped up in my own life. I miss the quiet smiles of my children, I miss the little messages of love I take for granted.
I am thankful... The weather like trials will soon be over. There will be joy because of passing through the fire and though I feel pretty scorched, there will be good things to anticipate.
In the kitchen... I will be baking my husband's birthday cake. He wanted the coconut cream cake I made during the summer.
I am wearing... Shorts and a blue worn out shirt that will be in the rag drawer soon.
I am creating... I am working on my crow and pumpkin rug. I dug out another rug I have drawn on backing. I have some things I have made this week but they are sitting by the sewing machine.
I am going...Out to dinner with my husband for his birthday!!! We haven't gone out in so long, it will be so nice to go do something just us.
I am wondering...How many I will be feeding for dinner tonight. It seems like I have so many extras to feed each night, so I never know how many.
I am reading...The Bible, my stack of devotionals. A Book called Forbidden History. I just started a book on the history of Quantum Physics. It has really great words.
I am hoping...Someday I will read this stuff enough I will be able to understand it.
I am looking forward to...Being free of fear and being a person who so trusts God that no matter what happens I will know without a doubt all things will work for good. I will be able to let go easier of my plans and instinctively know that God has my back and His plan is always for the best, no matter what.
I am learning God's plans are always better than my own.
Around the house...As I walked through the house turning on all of the ceiling fans, that soon I won't be running air conditioning or fans.
I am pondering...If we have had such hot weather this summer, does it mean we will have a very cold winter. The weather men have been comparing the weather this summer to the summer of 1975-76, it was so cold that year we had snow. I am hoping for that.
A favorite quote for today... " Endure hardship as a discipline; God is treating you as sons." Hebrews 12:7
One of my favorite things... My rug hook.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Going out to dinner, having a three day weekend, hanging out with my hubby. It being cooler. Just loving life and being happy.
A peek into my day... Take care of the chickens, Do school, cook dinner. Everyone gets home. The best part of the day.
