The Simple Woman's Daybook - November 30, 2010


Outside my window...winter dreariness ...
I am thinking... about this scripture I saw in The Message:

"Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless - that's your job, to bless." 1 Peter 3:8-9a

It's so easy when someone hurts me to want to respond with sarcasm, but instead I must bless. It's especially a tall order when it is someone close to you that has hurt your feelings ...
I am thankful for...how GOOD God is to me, even though I do not deserve anything from Him.
From the kitchen...beans and cornbread
I am wearing...Brown pants, boots and polo shirt, layered underneath a soft dark green suede jacket. One good thing about cold weather, I can wear my suede jackets!
I am creating... a list of projects for my upcoming vacation.
I am going... on a Walmart run after work today since I did not buy any groceries this week.
I am reading... the newest Jan Karon book.
I am hoping...to be a good mother-in-law.
I am hearing... the hum of the refrigerator.
Around the house... fall decor that must give way to Christmas pretties.
One of my favorite things... a week with nowhere to go.
A few plans for the rest of the week: getting ready for TWO Christmas parties this weekend.  Oh my!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

A new road picture - downhill from Wichita Mountain in Oklahoma!

I love your daybook for today. It is so powerful. I loved how you put the putting away of fall stuff for Christmas pretties....it was such a vivid image to me this morning. Have a great day.
