The Simple Woman's Daybook #80

Outside my window...it is FREEZING and RAINING.

I am thinking...that spontaneous mother-daughter dates rock.
I am thankful for... the community of people where I grew up. They also rock.
I am wearing...black yoga pants, green top.
I am remembering...things that I love like the Coshocton County Fair, Canal Days Parade, trips to "Amish Country," long walks on the tow path and people who are genuine and caring.

I am creating...lists. Lots of lists.

I am going... to move (yes, this is an official announcement).

I am reading...blogs.
I am hoping... for a miracle...still.
On my mind... What if?

From the learning rooms... Joshua, Samuel review for an upcoming Bible quiz meet, astronomy, and lessons in character development and sibling relationships.

Noticing that... my children are brave.
From the kitchen... leftovers tonight, but last night we had homemade white chicken chili and homemade corn bread.

Around the house...A pile of laundry is sitting next to me. I keep hoping it folds itself, but, so far, it's not happening.

One of my favorite things... watching my kids reunite with their dad at the end of his workday.
Praying for... Mom's strength and healing as she begins chemo treatment this week, and also praying for the right house and peace that gives us assurance that we've found the right place.
A verse to share..."The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set liberty to those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." Luke 4:18-19

A few plans for this week...babysitting, school, choir rehearsal, a trip to Lifeway to decide on kids' choir music and enjoying my birthday gift from my in-laws, which is a ticket to the Two Friends Concert featuring Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant!!!!!
A picture thought....
 It is easily as delicious as it looks!

  1. So are you moving to a new area, or changing houses? I'll be praying for wisdom in knowing which house is right!

  2. We're moving to be closer to my parents, which is about 90 minutes from here.
