FOR TODAY April 7, 2014
Outside my window... spring is s l o w l y making it's way into the area. We still have patches of snow here and there but the robins are back as are the redwing blackbirds.
I am thinking... about replacing my shoes that literally fell apart while I was shopping the other day. Pretty much limped back to the car because a large chunk of the sole fell right off.
I am thankful... for the abundance of encouragement and support that my friends and family give to me.
In the kitchen... some oatmeal bars and a lonely donut. Guess I'll have to keep the donut company with a cup of coffee. :)
I am wearing... a positive attitude for the day with motivation for a hat and efficiency on my feet.
I am creating... a letter for support because.....
I am going... to Burkina Faso on a short term mission trip!
I am wondering... how the building process is going for my in-laws new house?
I am reading... When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor... and Yourself by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert
I am hoping... the sun will come out tomorrow.
I am looking forward to... working in dirt. Going to plant seeds this week and get the vegetable garden planned. I have high hopes for our garden this year.
I am learning... about the first battles for independence of the United States way back when.
Around the house... lots of stuffed animals are engaged in battles, some are going through car washes and others are collecting herbs for healing.
I am pondering... four foundational relationships. Relationship with God, with self, with others and with the rest of creation.
A favorite quote
for today of all time... "I love you mom." ~Said spontaneously at one time or another by my children. ♥
One of my favorite things... the joy that comes from doing the right thing.
A few plans for the rest of the week: say goodbye to my honey for a few days as he heads out on a business trip, make a menu plan for Friday dinner, Awana, Royal Rangers derby car race, write my support letter, make the last few lesson plans for the year, host our small group on Friday and enjoy the spring weather for most of the week by opening some windows.
A peek into my daydreams...
