My life is ever approaching the empty nest time of life. Now, I spend my time spoiling grands, exploring making crafts, reading and my church. My blogposts will most likely be about these things in my life. Also book reviews and contests as love reading. Hope you will enjoy your visit and come again to see what is happening here.

Simple Woman's Daybook for September 23, 2014
For Today September 23, 2014
Outside my window... I see scattered toys from grands who have been over to play. It is a sunny but nice cool fall day.
I am thinking... how much I like this time of year, fall is my favorite season
I am thankful... that I am getting back on track with my exercise after falling off for a few days
This was my view walking this morning, thought this was a cool picture
I am wearing...jeans and a red tshirt
I am creating...a bookmark for a fall bookmark swap
I am going... to spend time with the 2 youngest grands today and work on loads of laundry
I am wondering... what I should get my hubby for his birthday tomorrow and yes I know I am late
I am reading... the bible and doing a bible study on Joy
I am hoping... that I will get caught up on laundry today
Around the house... getting things rearranged and done for cool days to come
In the kitchen... crockpot cooking with lima beans and ham to go with potatoes and cornbread for supper
I am pondering... How to draw closer to God and get deeper in His word
A favorite quote for today...Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
One of my favorite things... grands laughter
A few plans for this week: Working on bible study, blessing my home and working on lessons for church and prep for Christmas Program
A peek into one of my days from this past week...
One of my sweet grands that I teach preschool to, she is saying hello to anyone who might be reading this.

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
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, Pat
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.
