Simple Woman's Daybook June 8, 2016

Outside my window... the day is beautiful but it is so hot and humid that a street which would normally be alive with kids playing and birds singing is strangely quiet as everyone seems to be inside where it is cooler

I am thinking... about VBS, our church is having bible school this week, last night was the first night and the kids had a blast and 11 were saved

I am thankful... for my precious grands and how blessed I am to get so spend so much time with them
This is from the oldest birthday party this past weekend, he is Mario

I am going... to be so busy this next couple of weeks; bible school, summer library program, museum program and multiple trips to the Dr to see about some health issues

I am wearing...bluejeans and tshirt, which if I am not at church seems to be my usual atire

I am wondering... why people always want to group certain peoples together and why no one teaches or takes responsibility anymore hardly

A quote that recently caught my eye...
I am trying to learn and grow but a few less mistakes and more success would really be nice!

I am reading... Journey to Heal by Crystal M Sutherland,I will be reviewing this on my blog here in a few days

I am hoping... that I learn to use my cpap machine correctly and it will help me to rest and not always be so tired

A peek into one of my and the grands tried to be the heat early this morning and had a nice cold treat outside courtesy of Papaw

In my garden... empty beds crying for seeds, they are bought now to get them planted, looking like a late garden this year

In my kitchen... dishes waiting for my attention and supper prep that needs to be started and banana nut muffins for snack with some hot tea later

One of my favorite things...spending time with my husband, Billy
this is from datenight the other night

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…
