The Simple Woman's Daybook for February 2nd and Giveaway Winner

For Today(really tonight)

Looking out my window
I see a cold dark night that is too cold for me

I am thinking
I am going to keep blogging even if for me only.  I saw a quote today that said, Jesus had 12 followers and Hitler had 4 million.  I would much rather be closer to Jesus than Hitler so even if I only have a few blog followers I am okay with that, thanks everyone.

I am thankful
for my husband, he is so sweet, I found this on my laptop when I got up this morning

One of my favorite things
is to spend time with my grands and I get to homeschool them so that owrks out well

I am creating
Nothing but trying to create a plan so I can better keep up with my busy life and not miss bill dates, appointments etc

I am wearing
Blue workout pants and grey tshirt, my normal wear most days

I am reading 
trying to read the bible and not doing very well with that so not trying much else right now

I am hoping
to draw closer to God and to live in peace that I am in His will even if people don't think so

I am learning
that I have to get more organized cause I am going to lose it otherwise

In my kitchen
Leftovers now but supper was chicken fried steak, potatoes and gravy, mac'n'cheese and spinach

In the school room
We are doing all our normal subjects plus focusing on handwriting.  I told them if I cannot read it then it is wrong

In my garden
Nothing right now but am hoping my son or husband will make this for me for the spring

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…
