Walk with Him Wednesdays

Friday, April 29, 2011


The storms came through, they left their damage, they took homes, lives, security.  My husband's highschool, 2 and a half hours away, was damaged.  Tuscaloosa, damaged.  Area's north and south of us, damaged, changed forever.  We watched, prayed, lost power, but the storms spared us.  I am thankful.  Also, in awe, of the damage wrought, by wind and water.  I see the people afterward, wanting to help, to do what is needed.  We are blessed, I am encouraged.

Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...getting ready for coming storms

I am thinking...there is too much noise in this world...a good deal of it is unecessary.

I am thankful for...counting the many gifts of God...#22 daughter sharing stories about Jesus with her own daughter

From the learning rooms...patience, patience, patience....and mercy

From the kitchen...pumpkin pie leftover from Rudolph Day! YUM

I am wearing...jeans and a tee....standard and comfy

I am creating...Rudolph Day shorts...found Rudolph material, with Rudolph and Hermie...Awesome!

I am going...to be running a great deal today...*sigh*

I am reading...my bible...also going to re-read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I am hoping...I can find some quiet moments today

I am hearing...nick jr....someday we will grow up around here...although "Little Bear" should be on soon.  *happiness*

Around the house...clutter has taken over!

One of my favorite things...child's laughter

A few plans for the rest of the week: de-clutter; teach in AWANA; play with grandbaby

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...clouds are gathering for storms later, birds are very noisy this morning

I am thinking...about spring cleaning, making things fresh, clean, and pretty

I am thankful for...life, trying to live each moment, in the moment

From the learning rooms...we are saved by GRACE through FAITH....it is THE GIFT of God

From the kitchen...going to try the black bean burgers Angry Chicken has posted...maybe the kids will like them

I am wearing...jammies, it's too hot and humid to be in much else

I am creating...crocheted purses that flip open to reveal baby doll bassinet...I always wanted one of these as a child.  Going to make 4, for granddaughters and niece.

I am going...to take today slowly....no rushing around, being all crazy

I am reading...One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp...slowly, very slowly...very unlike how I usually read a book

I am hoping...that we get lots of thunder, but nothing severe

I am hearing...the birds singing, a lawnmower starting, the wind in the trees out back

Around the house...there are chores to do, and they will get done...in time

One of my favorite things...being able to enjoy the morning quietly and slowly

A few plans for the rest of the week: spend time with family, slow down

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
