Thursday Thirteen...

I just realized the time and with a mild panic thought "oh no !I haven't done a thing! That is not really true! My thirteen is what I did do today!

1. I awoke before the alarm and good thing too. I woke hubby before he was late for work. The alarm had not gone off! I saw him off with a loving embrace and a warm smile. I know that he looks forward to coming home to me. (that matters a lot!)

2. I fed the dogs. To keep the house quiet for a few more moments.

3. I sat down and just was still before God. Opened my manual for living (BIBLE) and learned more on how to pray for others in Colo.

4. I then let said dog in as to keep neighborhood quiet:) and had them lay down!

5. I took joy in my e-card from Denise. She blesses me daily with the sweetest scripture cards that just give me wind to sail.

6. I then awoke my children with a massage of the little legs and arms sore from last nights skating. Made them breakfast. Packed them lunch and then drove them to school.

7. I then came home and took the trouble to do myself a breakfast according to my meal plan and ate it and only it with my tea I made just for me! (Now this was big!)

8. I them made a rub of herbs for a leg of lamb and began roasting it in the oven. (according to meal plan just for me the family will benefit too.)

9. I called my Sister long distance out of Love and fore thought of how much it might mean for me to call her (she is the one who so often dials) listened and asked her questions about her life. Shared my life events. Looked at a Google earth image of her home and celebrated her by showing interest in her world.

10. Read my E-mails and answered several. I also listened to Jaye at "Just a Mom". Who told me to go rest!

11. Received two calls from Michelle at "Life in the midst of writing" who called to show she cared of my life and then called a second time for counsel on a matter.

12. Took the self kindness to Eat according to meal plan at lunch even washed a head of lettuce just for myself! NO GUILT!

13. Made a post for gratitude , skate date (entered a writing carnival) and my week in review! Spell checked them and made them nice.

Now the kids due home in 1 hour 45 minutes and I am rested well fed and ready for the Daddy man to be home late. He has a stop to make on the way home. He has to buy parts for the 4 runner. We may be having to invest into it. We own both cars so this is not to bad to have a repair on the truck. It may be costly so I can pray for Hubby to get good deals and to have wisdom in repairing it. He will be under the hood tonight. I'll give myself to the kids and then he will need my help on the truck tonight while the kids play. I still have to do my isometric exercises for my knee.

Sounds like you've had full day! What times dinner, I love lamb?? :D

That's nice that you were able to talk to your sister. I'm sure she enjoyed hearing from you.

I hope the repairs to your vehicle aren't too expensive. It is nice to own your own cars.

Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Denise said...

Another busy for you my friend, love you.

Amy said...

Whoa, what a busy girl you have been! Glad you're doing some better. Did you get my e-mail a few days back? Just wondering.

Praying for you friend, always.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
