Simple Woman's Daybook for January


Outside my starting to get dusky dark and trying to rain

I am thinking...about all that I need to do,but right now working on finishing blessing my home and starting supper-red beans & rice, mac n cheese and cornbread!

I am thankful...for each new day.  I am thankful for my friends online and IRL, hot tea, family and Gods blessings.

In the kitchen...I'm in the process of making some soup for lunch right now. Tonight we will be having a comforting dinner of Roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots and salad. Okay, might as well throw some flaky buttermilk biscuits in for good measure.

I am shirt, jeans and white socks

I am creating...the next few months Moms meetings, Children's church lessons and schoolwork for Stephen

I am where today, blessing my home

I am wondering...what is going to happen and if my hubby will find a job soon

I am bible and waiting on my book to arrive that I will be reading and reviewing

I am hoping...that I get all my stuff done this week that I need to get done

I am looking forward to...some free time later to relax

I am learning...that  do not have to control everything

Around the house...lots to do and hoping I can get it done

I am pondering..over life and where I am and where I want to be and how to get there

A favorite picture for today...

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 comes in trusting God and that He wan…
