The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, March 15th
Outside my window~ The sun is shining the birds are singing their little hearts out. My youngest daughter and I were sitting in our vehicle during the church service last night, and we got to see a beautiful display of God's creation. The whole field beside the church was covered in birds. Then they would all fly up at the same time, into the trees. They would stay there for a minute, and then all fly back down to the ground. There were over a hundred of them, and it was absolutely beautiful!
On my mind~ I had a horrible day yesterday and don't want to go back to church for a while, so I could use your prayers. I know I need to be in church. I've had several bad experiences with some of the people in this church over the last two years, and I don't know if it's just Satan's way of trying to discourage me, or if the Lord is allowing it to happen as a way of showing us that it's time for us to move on to another church. I know you will find people that treat you wrong everywhere you go, but there are other issues besides just that, that my husband and I are praying about. This church has been a real blessing to me and my family, and especially the kids. So this is a really hard thing to even have to think about. We just want God's will.
From the learning rooms~ I had a whole week of heavy schoolwork planned so that we could take a week off at the beginning of April, but one of my dear son's just threw up all over the kitchen floor, so my plans may be out the window. When one gets sick they usually all get sick. I had really hoped that we missed the stomach bug this year....bummer.
I am wearing~ a light maroon tank top and dark gray sweat pants. I was all geared up for exercising and cleaning...I guess the cleaning part is still in order!
I am reading~ Disciplines of a Godly Woman.
I am hoping~ That all the kids don't get sick. We just got over colds and I don't handle throwing up very well.
I am pondering these words~ Once again, you know they are at the top of my blog!
Around the house~ It is a Monday, so I still have lots of housework planned, and I am deciding on what I want to do for spring cleaning. I really want to pick a couple projects and actually get them done this year! I'm thinking the green cabinet (which is now yellow and beige) and the baskets in the kitchen need to be completely gone through and organized. Probably the closets would be the other project that I really want to get done for spring.
From the Kitchen~ Lots of chicken meals and hamburger helper. Not very healthy on the helper part, I know...but we are trying to round up money to fix the van.
From my picture journal~ I think I left you with enough of a visual for one day!
