The Simple Woman's Daybook for August 2

Outside my window ... VERY hot! The temps have been above 100 for days now.  It is sunny but you cannot go out and enjoy as it is too dangerous.
I am thinking ...  How am I going to get all this done before my daughter gets married this Saturday afternoon and then a trip out of state next weekend to take stuff to them
I am thankful for ... that my family are all pitching in to make sure my daughter and their daughter, sister, sister-in-law and Nanna has the wedding of her dreams
From the kitchen ... supper waiting to be cooked, now what shall I cook?
I am wearing ... pink T and Rose pants
I am creating ... bouquets for my daughters wedding and decorations for the reception
I am going ... to clean the kitchen, cook supper and then run more errands
I am reading ... Bible is about all I have time for right now
I am hoping ... that everything will turn out dreamy and "perfect" for my daughters wedding
I am hearing ... Little House on the Prairie that my hubby is watching

Missionary Monday-How to Pray for Missionaries!

This week instead of posting a particular Missionary family to pray for, I am going to post some practical ways to pray for missionaries as shared by a missionary.


**Sunday--Spiritual life. (2 Peter 3:18) He said if missionaries aren't careful, they can get so caught up in the ministering aspect of missionary work and the difficulties of the day, that the day is suddenly gone and the Bible hasn't been opened and real, meaningful prayer hasn't happened. The culture in other countries is so different, things like bill paying, food preparation etc. is much more difficult and time consuming. And then they still have to minister to the people in their church or the surrounding area.

He said it's very important that we pray for missionaries to stay in the word and stay close to the Lord through prayer.

**Monday--Money. (Phil 4:14) Support needs, personal stewardship, wisd…
