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

Around the house ... there is almost always laundry to fold, I need to cook supper and oh so much that probably won't get done this week, sorry :(

One of my favorite things ... spending time enjoying my family

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,

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…
