For Today... July 20, 2009
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW....the sun is out but overcast, which will keep the heat down today. Hopefully more rain will come.
I AM THINKING....of the wonderful, powerful message pastor gave yesterday on joy.
Having it even through all the hard times.
How close are we to the last lap?
Why are we not cheering to the finish line?
FROM THE LEARNING ROOMS...last minute papers with the younger two. The older two are done just need to complete cover pages and finish their portfolio.
They older two have began the next year already.
We will beginning the year with fun geography and hands on science,
we get to grow some mold....
I AM THANKFUL FOR..... That God has placed another very thoughtful God loving family in our life. The friendship and the blessings it brought to both our families have been
a wonderful witness to others of God's grace and love.
FROM THE KITCHEN...glue as my husband referred to it.
Fried rice.
I can not cook rice and we had a good laugh over it with dear friends.
We will have that and egg rolls and fried dough (carnival style)
I AM WEARING....denim skirt and a black tank top.
I AM READING....not much reading this week. Trying to do a daily devotion at least.
I AM get some ironing done today.I have said this everyday for 2 weeks now.
I AM CREATING...the second sock which is now for my son instead of the husband.
I AM PRAYING...for the first time mom and her baby who is in NICU on ventilator (born Sunday morning). I am also praying for a friend and her mom. The news from the doctors just has not been good. We know God is the real doctor of all.
AROUND THE HOUSE...I here my younger two playing together, the older two are outside working together before the rain comes. We are already working on laundry,
which is one of many things we must do this week.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS....rejoicing in family. I spent some wonderful time this weekend with my MIL,sharing my church family with her.
FEW PLANS FOR THIS WEEK....renewal papers filled out, ironing and portfolio
(why do these things seem so tedious when they are simple tasks)
HERE IS A PICTURE THOUGHT I AM SHARING WITH YOU...this is not all the men in the family we were still missing a couple. But these are the majority of our men in our life. That we love very much...

Now that is a very handsome crew of family men!
I'm betting more than one of them will take an interest in the hands-on-science-mold-growing project!

Thank you for sharing your Daybook at Grandmother Wren's.
