FOR TODAY March 30, 2009
Outside my window... the sun is shining brightly the birds are singing I hear the duster plane over the farms, means the potatoes are getting ready for harvest
I am thinking.. of the many blessings God gives to us daily. Trying to remember he does not forsake us even when we feel forsaken. That in hard times we need to find joy in ALL THINGS. In this recession where does my faith lye? Is it in God to provide for my family's daily needs or in the economy or even in my husband? Where are our true treasures, they are up in heaven not here on earth. Will this house show my servant heart of God? Will having things lead my children to Christ? Of, course not. Our service at church has been bring these already thoughts out more. Am I really trusting in God 100%? Am I truly turning everything over to him? Do I truly have a servant heart? Or am I allowing the bitterness from this economy effect me?
I am thankful for... being in my home. My husband has provided me all the wants a SAHM who home schools 4 children could ever want.
From the learning rooms... we will be working on math and LLATL. We really want to do geography and science the fun things as my kids refer to them.
From the kitchen ...coffee is brewed.
I am wearing.... my nightgown. I am getting a steam shower when I finish this post. I woke up at 3:00 am with allergy issues and by 8:00 am my head hurt so bad I was not functioning as I should be.
I am creating... a basket like this one here.
I am going.... to strings practice today. Also to the local consignment store my eldest son keeps growing out of his clothing for some reason. I told him stop growing, but you know how teenagers listen. Truthfully he is at the huge growth spurt stage when you need to buy clothes every other week.So we are going to see if we can find some clothes for him.
I am reading...., not. I try to read but lately it has not been happening. To much actual living going on. It is that time of year when the weather is perfect for completing some of the outdoor tasks.
I am hoping.... my husband gets more jobs. He has a job this week. Praise God. This job is 2 blessings one work and 2nd a front porch for our home.
I am hearing.... children are up and surrounding me in noise
Around the house ....it is feeling homey we finally have our living room as we dreamed of it 5 yrs ago when bought a fixer house. All the walls in the house are stripped textured and painted. The missing tiles from moving a wall have been placed and are waiting for grout. The house is coming together YEAH! With much work and why did we wallpaper 5 yrs ago? Oh yes we were overwhelmed by 4 hurricanes that year, a ex owner that would not get out of our house and a house that we had to literaly gut. This piece of work had potential and had the most beautiful setting on 5 acres.
One of my favorite things ...my husband who is extremely resourceful. Can always pull a bunny out of the hat. He amazes me how he can fix just about anything.
A few plans for the rest of the week:Spend time with my christian sister and dear friend helping her with prep work for up coming company. Chip away at school work to finish up our year.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...this is our music parlor/library (living room). We received a huge blessing with the sofas this weekend. This is what we dreamed of the finial outcome would be when we bought the house. Our dream came true.To read more Day book's or to become part of Peggy's Day book's go to http://thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/
