For Today~November 9th, 2010

Outside my window~ the sun is shinning brightly again. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful not to be freezing, but this 90 degrees, 35 degrees, 70 degrees thing is driving me crazy! Make up your mind weather! lol!

On my mind~ my brother. It's his 22nd birthday today! He is so special to me. He was just a precious little brother, the best any sis could ever have. Now as he grows in maturity, he's only neater, and more dear to my heart. I do pray that we can be closer in distance one day, so that I can see him more. I'm so proud of him for what he's accomplished and overcome in his life so far. He's got such a pure heart, and it shows in everything he does! Happy birthday little brother!

I am going~ to church tonight. The kids are putting on a Thanksgiving play, and tonight is their first "official" rehearsal. I'm hoping hubby will be able to watch, since he will most likely miss the play.

I am thankful for~ you know it would take me all day to rattle off this list! God is so good, I just don't have the words! I will so though, that today I am especially thankful that He gave us the means to get our Suburban running finally! I just can't believe it's fixed. I want to climb up on top of a mountain and shout praises to my Heavenly Father!

I am hoping~ that hubby passes all 4 sections of his EPA exam this morning. I'm also hoping (and praying) that the Suburban stays running well. It will make me feel better about him driving it across the country this week!

I am wearing~ my pj's still. It is cold enough though, that I have my soft, pink zip up robe on as well.

From the learning rooms~ major decisions have to be made here in the next few days. Please pray with us for God's wisdom!

From the kitchen~ Chicken or Steak?...I haven't decided yet. We've been so blessed with people giving us food over the last few weeks, we have not gone without!

Around the house~ laundry, laundry and more laundry! I have pulled out every piece of clothing we have in the house. I'm washing it all, going through it, deciding what to get rid of, what to pack, and what to keep in the closets for a while. It's such an overwhelming task, but we need to get it done!

A few plans for the rest of the week~ I'll be packing hubby's bags today. He plans on leaving Thursday. We'll have to pack him enough stuff to stay for a month, in case he does get this job. He'll be going through his tools, and deciding what to take with him. I need to think if there's anything else I need him to do for me before he leaves. Once he's gone, we'll be cleaning and organizing. I am hoping he will be able to tell me by Saturday if he got the job or not, and then if he does get it, we'll be packing, packing, packing!

From my picture journal~

Words cannot express how much I will miss Georgia if we have to leave. I love this place, and it will always be in my heart!


  1. What exciting days! We'll be praying for God's leading in this possible new move! and grace to do it cheerfully, not always easy.

  2. Good morning, Dear
    I've been just where you are right now with the prospect of a new job and a move...God does have a plan and knows where you need to be and if you are to move, He will place people in your life there who will bless you and you will have peace about it all.
    I loved reading your daybook..I need to go and rearrange my closet right now...I don't know why I put it off.
    And I am so with you about the temperatures..It is going to be in the 70s here today when it was in the 40s on Friday...I guess that is Fall in the South.
    Mama Bear

  3. I know what you mean about the weather! It's been in the 50's and 60's the last few days, now it's in the 60's and 70's and we're supposed to get up into the 80's tomorrow. It's like fall is backwards this year!

    Praying the Lord will make this next transition in your life a smooth one!
