Simple Woman's Daybook

Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Thursday, October 22

Outside my window... A cold front is blowing through! It rained today...ALOT. But this weekend is supposed to be sunny but cool. Perfect Fall weather that I love so mcuh!

I am thinking...that Friday makes me happy.

I am thankful for...the peace God has given me in the passing away of my sister. She is missed but I know she is with Him!

From the learning rooms...C-Scope is kicking my tail! The new curriculum causes me to fumble through lessons and at the end of the day I am almost embarrased at how the day went. Still trying to get used to it.

From the kitchen...we have been on a hamburger kick lately! Yummy!

I am lounging pants and a gray t-shirt

I am creating...creating? what does that mean? I feel like the creative juices have been sucked out of me. I also do not have the time. I would LOVE to go garage saling or flea marketing and find a piece of junk to do a "trash to treasure" project!

I am meet Kirk Cameron tomorrow night! A sweet lady at church gave us free tickets to a really nice dinner where we get to hear him speak and then get our picture taken with him! I am excited. I don't really care about famous people much, but I LOVED Fireproof and have much respect for him playing in those kinds of movies. is a date with my husband. Haven't done that in....can't even remember when!

I am reading...C-Scope, C-Scope, C-Scope

I am be able to sleep better at nights. I have NEVER been a restless sleeper. Everyone that knows me knows that when my head hits the pillow I am out in 2 seconds. But I have been having a hard time sleeping.

I am hearing...The Stars game on T.V. and the dryer.

Around the our deck built and it looks AWESOME! I am so excited about it and want to go outside all the time now! Now we just have to save up money to buy furniture to sit on out there! haha.

One of my favorite things...inside jokes. Now...I don't like inside jokes when people use them to make other people feel awkward or left out of the joke or story. But I DO love how inside jokes are a reminder of memories you have made with someone!

A few plans for the rest of the week...tomorrow night: Kirk Cameron, Saturday: Papa's 85th birthday party in Collinsville!, Sunday: church and friends over to eat lunch, Sunday night: Jeff leaves to go to Arlington for the Youth minister's conclave. Really wish I could go with him.

A picture I want to share...The Deck!!!!!!

I Will Rise

I posted the song that was played at the end of my sweet sister, Erin's, memorial service on my playlist at the bottom of this page. It perfectly describes how even in the midst of is all under control because of the price Jesus paid for us. I know full well that Erin is face to face with God. I find comfort in that and I CAN say, "It is well." I am sad because I will miss her, but I know it is not the end and I will see her again. The most wonderful thing that was said at her memorial service was this...

"The beautiful thing about Erin's life is that she has showed us so much about God that she fades away....we fade away....and all that is left is the image of God."

I sure hope I can live a life like that too.
