Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Sunday, October 17, 2010...

Outside my window...perfectly cool and dark and quiet. :)

I am sweet sister alot this month. She passed away a year ago this month. She was such a sweet part of my life!

I am thankful for...the love of my church family, for the amazing teacher that my pastor is, and for the life changing word of God!

I am creating...home made costumes for halloween. Actually havent started yet, but its on my mind. Colin and Jeff will be mario and luigi. Carley will probably be a ladybug (already have a constume for it that someone gave me). My team at school will all be characters from Wizard of Oz and I'm going to be the Tin Man.

I am get in bed at 9:00 tonight. Jeff and I both have made it a goal to get more sleep this week and see what kind of difference it makes in our life. Excited!

I am reading...Ephesians. Good freakin stuff!

I am hoping...that the word of God continues to change and excite me (and not like a "I wish" hope, but like that "I expect" kind of hope)

On my do I reach 2 of my students that have severe issues? Feel like I can't do enough.

From the learning rooms...numbers 6-10, patterns, community helpers, studying bats in science, and of course letters/sounds, rhyming, etc. I'm sure you wanted to know all that!

Noticing that...carley might be ready for spoon feeding! she stares at us and kicks her feet in excitement when we eat. We will try real soon.

Pondering these words... "I pray also, that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe." -Ephesians 1:18-19

From the kitchen...we had lelftover steak and baked potatoes tonight. tomorrow will be tacos!

Around the house...I have 2 sweet kids in the recliner with me right now. Jeff is editing photography. And we are winding down to go to bed soon!

One of my favorite things... when my youth in sunday school give me an answer that I never thought of. Excites me to no end that they are thinking outside the box and actually listen and care. Love them.

From my picture journal... The 3 most important people in my life! Love each of them to pieces.

I LOVE that God is so smart and loving that He wrote His words to change lives then AND now! And, I love when our students go from a "What does this truth mean?" to a "What do I DO with this truth?" Pentecost kind of moment!
Your kids are so stinkin cute, and Carley is growing up so fast! I have yet to hold that sweet baby girl, and she will not be a "baby" much longer! Grrr! I think the sleep idea can be life changing, seriously. I can tell the difference at our house, in our tempers and attitudes when we get the amount of sleep we need. (no extremes of sleeping in or staying up too late.) Also, the importance of going to sleep together for Daniel and I, not that it's the BEST time for talking (since we're supposed to be going to but that's when we do some of our best talking sometimes. Love you lots and I love reading about how you're all doing!
