Simple Woman's Daybook January 4, 2016

The Simple Woman's Daybook, hosted by Peggy @ The Simple Woman's BlogOutside my window... the sun is shining but it is cool, noise from next door where a neighbor is remodeling a house, nice winter day
I am thinking... about my schedule-trying to get on some sort of schedule and getting back on eating better and exercise
I am thankful... for friends who never give up on me and who encourage me when I do want to give up
I am wondering... how my husbands Dr's appointment will go on Wednesday and praying for no surgery
I am going... to work on my schedule and plans for the year 2016
In the kitchen... I am prepping for supper for Billy and T.  I will be gone to a meeting tonight. We are eating at a local restaurant-salad and grilled chicken for me
I am the moment only my bible but will be making a reading list in the next few days I hope

A quote that caught my eye... 

I am pondering... where God wants me to be and where He wants for me to go this year
I am hoping... to continue with my crafting and get better at it and make more presents this year
Around the house... decluttering and rearranging
I am looking forward to... getting healthier this year

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…
