Simple Woman's Daybook for October 12th

For Today
Looking out my window... and thinking of all the tests I have had done  for my heart and praying they come out all right
I am thinking...I am not sure if I will ever get caught up on all my housework.  Am I just dreaming and expecting something to be that can't and probably doesn't have to be?
I am thankful... for the Word of God.
One of my favorite things...
My sweet daughter in law designed and made this in her boutique for me

I am wearing... pajama pants and old church tshirt, feeling kind of bummy today
I am creating... a couple of canvases for Christmas and an order (can't share because they are for gifts)

I am watching... the 7 Little Johnstons

I am reading... Some of these I was on launch team but am now re-reading them because they are so full of knowledge that my life needs right now

Front Porch Friday-"Quiet Time Tips That Really Work"

I have been trying so hard to have a daily quiet time with the Lord.  I am trying to do this not so I can check off another box on the to do list but because I truly crave that daily alone time with the Lord.  Lets face it we are all busy Moms, Mamaws, Wives, Ladies so how do we find this time.  I have found a few tips that help me so sharing them with you.

Do it in the morning unless you are truly a night owl and the thought of one more thing to do in the morning makes you physically sick.  If so have your quiet time at night, God doesn't care when we meet with Him, just that we do.Use a plan.  If you fail to plan you can probably plan to fail.  I personally am using Youversion on my phone right now.  They have plans on lots of subjects and things or times you might be going through.  I read the devotion on the phone and use my bible to read the scriptures. However the world won't stop turning if you read your bible on your phone.Be honest about yourself. Be honest with…

Stop Waiting And Live Your Life!

Sometimes I think my life is just an over and over of all the same things that are just....well just life. Life is laundry, cooking, cleaning, over and over every day.

     But then there is, soccer and as my grands enjoy it. There is children's church, homeschool and family events, birthdays, dr's appointments and more.

But then I stopped to what if this is my life....THIS is my life.  The life I love, my family, my grands, my church, the ones and things I love.  This is life, what am I waiting on? 
I am blessed beyond measure.  My husband loves me, my kids love me, my grands love me and God loves me.  What am I waiting on? What are you waiting on?


Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…

Journey Through Life---Now I am the Mamaw!

I saw this picture the other day and it is so true for me.  I wish I could go back to their house just one more time.  So much of my memories are focused around time spent with them, on their front porch, playing in their yard and spending the night on a pallet at their house.  I am so thankful for the precious memories I have now that they are both in heaven.
     As I was thinking about some sweet memories, I stopped and thought, I am the Mamaw now.  Me and Billy are Mamaw and Papaw.  Some day will our grands think this, wish they could come to our house one more time?  What kind of memories are we making?  What kind of things are we doing with them?  Will they be good memories or a time they would rather forget?
     I think our grands really enjoy the things we do with them and the time we spend with them but I will be thinking and praying on this.  I will be thinking and praying on making even more memories before we are just that a memory.
      What about you, what kind …
