The Simple Woman's Daybook - October 26, 2009

FOR TODAY...October 26th from Jerri's Daybook

Outside my window... still dark and 46°. I'm not looking forward to Daylight Savings Time ending.

I am thinking... about how wonderful our ladies' retreat was this weekend. The presence of the Lord was so strong!

I am thankful for... the blessings of family, home, church and my jobs. I'm surrounded by those who love me!

I am wearing... brown dress pants, lime green cami, brown, lime green, yellow and white tunic. I see that I'm in a rut - I'm sure I've posted this outfit many times ...

I am remembering... the words to this old chorus:

I'll say yes, Lord, yes
to Your will and to Your way.
I'll say yes, Lord, yes
I will trust You and obey.
When the Spirit speaks to me,
with my whole heart I'll agree
and my answer will be
yes, Lord yes.

I am going... to our Harvest Festival at church Friday night. There will be chili, roasted hotdogs, and singing around the bonfire. I hear there's going to be chocolate, too ...

I am reading... I just finished Deborah Raney's "Yesterday's Embers." I'm going to have to find something new to read.

I am hoping... to get a lot accomplished this week. (I always say this!)

On my mind... a bunch of filing that needs to be done ...

Noticing that... I feel so much more productive when my desk is clear of clutter!

Pondering these words... "You can't have victory by osmosis." Joyce Meyer

From the kitchen... homemade pizza tonight, oven fried chicken tenders tomorrow. Also, I want to make an apple pie with some apples that are past their prime.

Around the house... I'm getting all my candles ready to be used in these fall and winter evenings. I love the glow of candlelight.

One of my favorite things~ Sunday afternoon naps.

From my picture journal..

This a picture taken years ago of my sister and me. Dig those huge glasses I'm wearing!
