The Simple Woman's Daybook #72

Outside my window...the ground is dusted with snowflakes (and I'm ready for a blizzard).

I am thinking...about Mary and Joseph and what it must have felt like to know they were expecting "their" first child who really wasn't their child at all. What must it have been like to see his face the first time? I can't wrap my mind around it.
I am thankful for... an extremely kind, generous eye specialist.
I am wearing...red Christmas pajamas with green trees, snowflakes and reindeer on them. Oh yes I am!
I am remembering... Christmas lights and candle light and all of Warsaw lit with luminaries on Christmas Eve.

I am creating...plans to finish my Christmas shopping.

I am going... to remember whatever it is that I am probably forgetting to do in preparation for the upcoming kids' musical at GCCN.

I am reading... A Christmas Carol by Dickens. I've never read it. I'm loving it.
I am hoping... for peace and discernment.
On my mind... ensuring that the Lord is truly the Lord of my life, and not just someone I call Savior. He is so much more than that.

From the learning rooms...  Joseph, ancient Egypt (my kids are so over Egypt at this point), Christmas crafts and fun writing assignments.

Noticing that... I need to get some of my own negative attitudes under control.
From the kitchen... pate chinois (a fancy name for a casserole with ground beef, onion, creamed corn, whole kernel corn, mashed potatoes and cheese).

Around the house...much organizing needs to be accomplished soon, or I may go absolutely berzerk.

One of my favorite things... Ava's piggy tails.
Praying for... healing.

A verse to share..."A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." Proverbs 15:1
A lyric or two... 

Sing, Mary, Sing!
Lullaby the king.
Born to be our pardon.
No longer shall we weep.
Come soften what was hardened.
Sing, Mary, Sing!

A picture thought I'm sharing with you...

A few plans for this week...wrapping up school before our break, rehearsals, and Christmas shopping.
