The Simple Woman's Daybook #85

Outside my window...spring thunder and rain. It's glorious for as long as I get to stay in the house! The grass is getting greener everyday!!!

I am thinking...about how much my kids have been helping us get ready to move, and neither of them has complained even once.
I am thankful for... an extra week to pack and sort.
I am wearing...blue stretchy capris and a yellow t-shirt (around the house packing clothes).
I am remembering...how much I loved growing up in Coshocton County.

I am creating...simplicity.

I am going... to spend the afternoon packing.

I am reading...Above Rubies magazine in snippets at night before I fall asleep.
I am hoping... to experience a super-charged amount of motivation.
On my mind... transition and trying to live in one community while still having activities in another.

From the learning rooms... Saul and David, subtraction, division and Dr. Seuss.

Noticing that... I need to have Ava read to me each day even if I'm doing 10 other things at the same time.
From the kitchen... simple meals. Tonight, we're having chicken and rice and green beans on the side.

Around the house...is a sea of boxes and all the stuff that you put off til the end because you really don't want to do it.

One of my favorite things... expressions of love, given and received.
Praying for...moving details. We need to be ready in time, we need to get loaded on Friday and unloaded on Saturday, and we need plenty of help at both ends.
A verse to share..."Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." I Corinthians 12: 4-7

A few plans for this week... packing, packing and more packing (and I'll throw in some cleaning and laundry too).

  3. Kendra,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I see that you are from the Nazarene church... I go to Bible Study Fellowship with people from a few of the different Nazarene churches here in Belize.

    If you ever head this way let me know... it would be fun to meet in real life :-)

  4. Good luck packing.
    I see you read Above Rubies... Rock and Monique Campbell are good friends of ours, my husband was in their bridal party, just a little piece of useless informaton :)

  5. Hi! I found you on the UBP earlier today and bookmarked you "for future reference." :^) And now I just wanted to let you know that I've decided to follow you - and I look forward to getting to know you. ~ Tina (http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com)
