The Simple Woman's Daybook - October 11, 2010

FOR TODAY, October 11, 2010

Outside my window... darkness with an occasional motorist passing by.
I am thinking...of a devotional that I am going to lead Wednesday night.  It's entitled "Are You Armed and Dangerous, or Asleep or Daydreaming?"
I am thankful for...the opportunity to share, and also the many study helps and bible versions available to help me prepare a lesson.
From the kitchen... lemon-pepper pork chops and broccoli and cheese.
I am wearing...brown slacks, lime green cami, brown, yellow and lime green plaid tunic.
I am outline for my devotional
I am get my haircut today. 
I am reading...I just finished Beverly Lewis' new book, "The Thorn."
I am get in the Word more and more ... it's vital!
I am hearing...appliances hum and the clocks ticking.  Everyone else is asleep - today's a holiday, Columbus Day.
Around the house...everything is pretty well caught up at the present time!
One of my favorite things...the smell of candles burning - one of the things I love about this time of year!
A few plans for the rest of the week: finishing my devotional and getting some things done for next week's board meeting.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

This is a photo of a farmhouse I took while traveling a country road near my home about a year and a half ago.  I just love it!  I have a real affection for old two story homes - especially those with porches!

Daybooking is a concept conceived by Peggy Hostetler at The Simple Woman's Daybook.  It's a journal page that chronicles life at the beginning of each week and helps us to do a little planning for the week ahead.  If you'd like to join in, click here.

I think I might do this on Tuesdays! Mondays are not good for me! LOL! I really LIKE it though... except for the part where I have to tell that I'm still wearing my jammies every week! :)

I have been suckered into leading one day Bible class on outreach. This just happened yesterday... and so my studying is only just beginning. But mostly I just have to talk about what I know... I just need some scripture to back me up! I don't lead it until Nov. 14th... so I'm good! As long as I don't procrastinate... I wish I could attend some of YOUR classes! Your heart is SO ablaze!!!

I hope you're having a fabulous week

I have just started reading "The Thorn" by Beverly Lewis. I like the picture of the old farmhouse...I love farmhouses! Hope your week is great! Karen


I would love to read the devotional. It sounded fascinating. Care to share?

I wish you would send me the devotionals that you do. Hint Hint

I love Candles and Old Houses with Big Porches.

That is the kind of house that pops into my mind when I think about your area of the world

Wow what a beautiful farmhouse. Yes, my plate was pretty full this week. And I actually ended up being gone with 2 teacher conferences & a Reconcilation meeting with my daughter last night. But, we are staying home tonight, I think. Thank you for visiting my blog. It's not much. Hoping to tend to it more, when sports settle down in our house. Have a good weekend.
