For today... December 7th, 2009
Outside my window... it is COLD! I feel like I'm back in the Midwest. Seriously.
I am thinking... about what a goof-ball I am! Why do I wrestle with the Lord, give the Enemy an opening, and make myself miserable? I'm so glad the Lord is long-suffering with me!
I am also thinking there is a whole lot that is going on that I can't see and that trust and obedience to the Lord are of the utmost importance (especially right now).
I am thankful for... the unexpected visit by David and Kristina today. David came and built our very first manger. I never thought I could be so happy not having a Christmas tree. I'm thankful he was also here to help move the couch! :)
Oh, I'm thankful I'm feeling better and I'm especially thankful I don't have the flu.
I am wearing... jeans, black turtleneck, black cardigan, Sock Monkey hat, and the boiled wool cloggy things.
I am going... to the library tomorrow... must. return. books.
I am reading... sewing/project books in addition to my usual... Footsteps of the Flock, and assorted verses from the bible.
I am praying... for continue strength and energy to serve the Lord and my family. I'm praying Nana gets better soon. And I'm praying for protection while I write these devotionals. Yikes!
I am hoping... for my brain to be still.
I am creating... a few Christmas gifts. The sweater is almost finished. I bought buttons today :)
The DVD cover is almost done, too. I did re-cover this pillow from a sweater I got at Goodwill.
This sweater plus...
this tired pillow equals
Pondering these words... "The Lord is good..."
From the kitchen... experiments with the new Demarle Flexible mold pans I just got. These things are incredible!
Around the house... "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."
One of my favorite things~ finding great deals at Goodwill with a good friend!
From my picture journal...
We still need to get fresh branches and straw. Plus, we'll also add more lights but this is our manger so far.
