The Simple Woman

 December 15, 2008

~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

this morning from my front porch . . .
dark morning, streaked sky of daybreak, ‘spring’ temperatures outside

i am remembering . . .
 traipsing through groves of pines, firs, and spruces looking for the perfect tree

i am thankful  . . .
mild weekend weather, the children’s Christmas play, simple prayer

from the kitchen . . .
gift giving recipes, lists upon lists, muddy boots by the back door

I am thinking . . .
It is going to be really challenging to focus on studies this week for mom and son!

around the house . . .
warmth of Christmas decorations, clutter on the landing pad (kitchen table)

I am reading . . .
Wonderful Counselor, A Fortnight of Christmas Meditations
by Larry Libby & Steve Halliday

my favorite things . . .
the ‘feeling’ of completion when the decorating is done, the shopping is done, the package mailing is done, and the baking is done.

a few plans for the rest of the week . . .
toffee crunch biscotti and peanut butter brownies gifts for my husband’s office, finish shopping for out-of-town family, parties with friends this weekend,
The Christmas Carol on Saturday

a verse of Scripture . . .
this also comes from the lord of hosts,
Who has made His counsel wonderful and His wisdom great
Isaiah 28:29

Here is a picture thought I am sharing . . .
