The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... April 20, 2009

Outside my window... Sunny and 77˙-- so happy I'm giddy

I am thinking... about how difficult it is to look into the heart of a person and how easy it is to hurt people we care about. The thoughts don't match the sunny weather-- they seem more like thoughts for a gloomy day but the sun outside reminds me that God truly is in control and He is working all things out for good. The Son will burn away all the dark clouds of hurt and confusion and one day we will all see clearly. I hope that day is very, very soon.

From the learning rooms... Finishing up Elijah, learning about Elisha, India's caste system, Naboth's vineyard, and briefly going over Buddhism and Hinduism.

I am thankful for... the little things-- a washer and dryer that work, a sunny day, hot water this morning. I'm also thankful for bigger things-- my husband has a job, we have plenty of food to eat, my children are currently healthy and my Mom and Dad that live next door.

From the kitchen... M- Chinese Chicken Salad T- Adobo W- S&P roasted chicken, Th- Spicy Meatloaf F- Clam Chowder

I am wearing... running shorts and a tank-- outdoor school today.

I am reading... Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore (which I can't put down) and the usual.

I am hoping... in Jesus.

I am creating... a variety of projects-- cards, gifts, etc...

I am praying... comfort and healing for a few friends and that I would stay under the shelter of His wing.

Around the house... busy as usual.

One of my favorite things... outdoor school!

A few plans for the rest of the week... library, rehearsal starts for the girls in ballet-- the Spring performance is Alice in Wonderland (so excited), and violin for all. No major plans this week.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

I can't believe my little one is eight years old now...

We love to do school on the patio too - but not when it's cold and pouring rain! We have big holes in the pergola roof and it doesn't do our books much good! Enjoyed your daybook!

I LOVE that book. I read "Same Kind of Different as Me" about 6 months ago. I spent several lunch hours at work with tears in my eyes. I love the simple wisdom that the Lord gives to Denver, and how he uses him to speak truth into the lives of those around him.
