The Simple Woman's Day Book

For Today... November 17th 2008

Outside my window...a beautiful fall morning

I am thinking...guard your heart with all dilligence and have you ever noticed that stores just skip right over Thanksgiving to the marketing of "The Holidays".

I am thankful for...quiet moments with Jesus

From the kitchen...A chicken baked at home for homeade soups and sandwhiches without preservatives.

I am wearing...A pink sundress and sandles as the house is kept warm for Mum-in-law

I am reading...the new Mary Janes Farm magazine. Did you know she opened a new shop in Coeurd'alene Idaho in the Plaza where they hold the Saturday morning Farmers Market all year round? Also reading the latest issue of Above Rubies Magazine, such a blessing to women who love Jesus.

I am hoping...my headache will go away soon

I am creating...business cards, and craft items that I will have to post sometime soon.

I am hearing...Pastor Chuck Smith teaching the Bible verse by verse on the radio.

Around the house...Mum in law is resting, the hum of the heater and the dryer and the dishwasher, floors to sweep and mop.

One of my favorite things...seeing the faces of the children as they sing to Jesus, they don't worry about who listens to them, or if they know the words or not, they just sing. A house full of people at Thanksgiving.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Dr. Appointments, washing the bed linens, taking inventory of the pantry and baking supplies, and freezer as trips ventured out in the soon coming snow with Mum in law will be fewer.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Such a nice day. In a few minutes I'll be listening to our pastor's message from Sunday. I didn't go to church due to illness so this is nice that I can listen to the same message a bit later in the week.

Love the picture - I was planning on using that very one next week. :o)

Bless you,

Where do you find your pictures? They are so nice!
I am reading Mary Jane's Farm Magazine too! I nearly died laughing at the story of the pastor's wife on page 37!
We visited her store when we were in Couer d' Alene for the Marriage Conference. It was a brief visit though...not much time. It looked to be very expensive.
I've been sick, so getting to read more this week than usual. Been sick 8 days now.
