The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, Monday May 4th, 2009...

Outside my window... overcast and gray. At least it's not currently raining. It's raining now :)

I am thinking... about our week ahead of us (busy but good busy) and I'm also thinking about treatment options for these impinged nerves. Does anyone have experience with nortripyline or gabapentin?? I would really prefer to not take either one.

From the learning rooms... we are heading into week 28 and the life of Jonah and Hezekiah.
We'll also learn about the Assyrians and the captivity of Israel--722 BC.

I am thankful for... so much... my hubby giving his testimony at church last night was a huge blessing, that the director at the ballet school is confident our daughter will be able to learn her role in time for the performance (she has a broken toe currently), that my brother is coming!!! for the first time to visit us and that he will be baptized on Sunday (Mother's Day).

The Lord has done and is doing such amazing things in and through our family-- He is so good.

From the kitchen... M- Moroccan Chicken, T- Chicken Guisantes, W- Sol Long Tong, Th- Fajitas and Fri- Spaghetti (I didn't plan on having such an international menu this week! It just kind of happened :D)

I am wearing... jeans, a very bright pink top, brown sweater and yes, you know what are on my feet :)

I am reading... very slowly these days... not usual for me. I've been having a hard time reading lately. I'm sure finding my reading glasses would help...

I am hoping... to spend some time decluttering this week and getting school things tidied up before our week off from school next week.

I am creating... nothing apparently. I've had the same projects on my "To Do" list for weeks but it hasn't happened.

I am praying... for safe travel for my brother, healing for various people, peace and hope for a friend that emailed yesterday, and that our family would rest under the shadow of His wing.

Around the house... laundry today and getting rid of "stuff"-- the need to purge is quickly overriding physical limits... I must find a way to do what I need to do.

One of my favorite things... is hearing about God's faithfulness in the lives of other people. Testimony is so powerful. I just love how everyone has a story and that God's faithfulness is unlimited.

A few plans for the rest of the week... just plugging away at school, the usual lessons for the kids, rehearsal for the girls, a PT appointment tomorrow-- maybe this week I'll fulfill the requirements for the traction unit & get to take it home, hopefully Bible study tonight and
David and Kristina's wedding on Saturday!

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

We had a large rainbow last week and our kids insisted I document it :)
An awesome visual reminder of the faithful promises of God.

Have a wonderful week and Happy Mother's Day
to all the mommies out there.



forever I am His said...

Thank you for sharing in our joy! We've waited along time for this prodigal to come home... he'll be 46 this month :)

That would be "a long time" not along time (hee hee). Silly me.

Looking for something??
