The Simple Woman's Daybook #58

Outside my window...the grass needs mowing.

I am thinking...that I need time at home to get some things done and to recharge my own batteries.
I am thankful for... God's provision for us and a hopeful prognosis for Dad.
I am wearing... white, stretchy capri pants and a gray cotton tank.
I am remembering... happy memories from my teen years spent with an incredible friend with whom I am still making memories.

I am creating... cards, or I will be creating cards this afternoon.

I am going... to stay home today.

I am reading... .A Perilous Proposal by Michael Philips. I need one more relaxing read before beginning school.
I am hoping... for the truth to be made clear in all things. Still.
On my mind... my parents' health and our finances.

From the learning rooms...  still prepping for the start of school in two weeks. On the agenda: Pick-up reserved books, get a Bexley library card and get more books there since the metro system doesn't have any of the Jewish titles which we need.

Noticing that... God puts very specific people in our lives for very specific reasons.
From the kitchen... spaghetti with freshly made sauce from the garden.

Around the house... catching up the laundry today, making pasta sauce to freeze (and eat) and making sympathy cards.

One of my favorite things... visiting friends and spending time away from city life.
Praying for... my Dad and a personal situation and strength for myself to meander through some very stressful life circumstances.

A Lyric or two...

Decisions must be made
and now i have a choice,
i need your wisdom Lord
i need to hear your voice
im facing challenges
and the walls are closing in.
I'm crying out to you, my one true,
faithful friend.

hear my prayer oh lord
i need you in my life
i cry to you
oh, lord.
please lead me to the light
show me the way
oh lord
and cleanse me from my sin
i need you
i need you once again
i need you
i need you once again

A verse to share...For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13

A few plans for the week... meeting needs.

A picture thought...
This is my kids posing with three of Sarah and Jason's kids in their hay loft. Sarah and I have been friends since we were 12. Left to right: Claire, Ava, Lukas, Annie and Lauren. Only baby Isaac is missing from the photo.
