The Simple Woman's Day Book

For Today...

Outside my window... Spring teases with 90 degree day over the weekend and now a 70 degree day today...Grass is seeding and the allergy season has begun.

I am thinking... I will go to Bible study in the morning and walk into my day with courage.

From the learning rooms... I learned some good tricks for the strawberry pot. Add peat to the holes and also a bit of pebble to the top hole so as to not displace the soil when I water. I have been watching a show or a channel called create. I love it.

I am thankful for... My Dove's character she is now defending the underdog at the cost of her status. I am proud of her.

From the kitchen... a soft light under the cabinet and all is finished for the day.

I am wearing... Capri jeans and a t-shirt type top that is rose colored. Many combs in my hair for I had been working hard physically all day.

I am reading... Old home school documents on character, developmental timing and such.

I am hoping... To finish the laundry and sorting of the piles that are left from reorganizing the unpacked boxes. I want order! A quilt for the big master bed and curtains.

I am creating... A baking center to save on preparation time and energy.

I am hearing... crickets

Around the house... laundry is half washed and folded. many things to hang and put away. Clutter piles beg to be ordered and with Federal taxes done I must get a state tax book and finish it all up. We had $23,ooo in Itemized deductions. $14,900 in medical alone OUT OF POCKET! NO DEBT! we paid it all off! Praise GOD!!!!

One of my favorite things... making something to give.

A few plans for the rest of the week... cleaning, order, crafts and service work at the elementary.

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

I need to get my starters back up and rising.

'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
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
