FOR TODAY November 13, 2013
Outside my window...beautiful sunshine! Oh, how I've missed you.
I am thinking... of Christmas in Africa. For those who celebrate, what might their special family traditions be?
I am thankful... for a God who cries when I cry and knows my pain and wants to comfort and heal me.
In the kitchen... I'm anticipating eating the butternut squash I picked up from the orchard the other day.
I am wearing... a bright yellow t-shirt that says, "Smile, God Loves You!" and black yoga pants. The t-shirt was my dads and I imagine him giving me a hug every time I put it on.
I am creating... an art "corner" for the kids; since we'll be learning and trying a lot of art this quarter.
I am going... to the library to pick up some books about renaissance painters and then drive through for some fast food lunch.
I am wondering... how my sister is doing? She is preparing for another surgery for her 10 week old daughter that is scheduled for tomorrow.
I am reading... Why I Am a Christian by John Stott.
I am hoping... these latest "fires" I'm handling run their course quickly and work to refine me.
I am looking forward to... visiting dear friends.
I am learning... to take captive my every thought and not let anything slip before I censor it.
Around the house... shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
I am pondering... a way to stay in my nice cozy bed and still teach the kids and get chores completed.
A favorite quote for today... "When fortune comes seize her firmly by the forelock, for, I tell you, she is bald at the back." ~ Leonardo da Vinci
One of my favorite things... a fuzzy Milo right before I take him in for grooming. He's so soft and fluffy.
A few plans for the rest of the week: prep for co-op on Friday, fill our shoeboxes and bake apple crisp.
A peek into my day...
