Simple Womans Daybook for April 2017

For Today

Looking out my window I see sunshine and hear the birds singing

I am thinking how clean everything looks after the rain

I am thankful for my husband and that he listens for my heart drops

One of my favorite things is spending time on my front porch in the mornings and reading my bible

I am creating a space for me, it is a work in progress but will be worth the wait

I am wearing blue shorts, brown tshirt and a messy bun

I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to: reading Listen, Love, Repeat for a bible study, my bible for me and watching the birds play in the puddles and listening to "Even If" by Mercy Me
I am hoping to get my house and laundry caught up today

I am learning that you do unto others as you would HAVE them do unto you not what they actually do to you

In my kitchen beer brats and fries and southern sweet tea per my son's request

In the school room we are done with formal learning for the year but will continue with fun stuff through the summer and will begin again on labor day

In my garden vegetable and flower seeds are in the ground and will update as they come up and produce

Board room I am sharing one of my boards as this is April and it is Sarcoidosis awareness and I live with this disease day by day

Post Script has helped me so much in my daily quiet time, check it out

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…
