The Simple Woman

 December 29, 2008

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

this morning from my front porch . . .
silvery, grey dawn; frosted grass, quiet bird feeder

i am remembering . . .
 singing old hymns, gatherings with friends, grateful faces with warm turkey dinners, midnight trampoline jumping (college students), bell choir ringing

i am thankful  . . .
recovering from a stomach virus, my husband’s job, the daily opportunity for holiness, forgiveness, and obedience

from the kitchen . . .
remnants of cookies and cake balls, meatballs, fresh pears and honey crisp apples, finding a simple meal for dinner

I am thinking . . .
Biblically based New Year resolutions, stretching the house budget

around the house . . .
children still sleeping, new puzzle on the kitchen table

I am reading . . .
Proverbs 31 & Galatians

my favorite things . . .
pockets of solitude, thinking about saving money, making our home more efficient

a few plans for the rest of the week . . .
re-thinking kitchen use and organizing cabinet contents, painting dressers in daughter’s room, learning more about the CVS money-saving system, cleaning out the decorations we didn’t use before packing the ones we did, tackling cleaning out the basement in manageable chunks, scrubbing the kitchen floor and behind the stove, cleaning out emails and ‘favorites’ on computer, begin cleaning-out home office and filing cabinets.

a verse of Scripture . . .
“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed”
2 Corinthians 9:8

 Here is a picture thought I am sharing . . .
