Daybook - November 8, 2011


Outside my window...daylight and a school bus just passed by.

I am thinking... that I can't believe how quickly 2011 has passed.  We're already halfway into the 4th quarter of the year!

I am thankful... that God has supplied all my needs - and quite a few of my "wants."

In the kitchen...barbecue pork in the crockpot

I am wearing...gray slacks and cardigan with a "salsa green" blouse.  I love gray - it's the new black!

I am creating
... a prayer journal

I am going
... to have a week off after Thanksgiving.  My only goal is to clean out my desk drawers at home, and sleep and read - maybe scrapbook a little.

I am wondering
...about a young couple I know that seems to have dropped off the face of the earth!  I've left messages, but have heard nothing ...

I am reading... a new Amish book by Tricia Goyer, "Beside Still Waters." I guess the appeal of Amish books for me is that they are clean books focusing on simpler times.

I am hoping... the earthquakes in Oklahoma where my daughter lives STOPS!

I am looking forward to... my time off - perhaps I will just read all day long for one of those days ...

I am hearing
...the sounds of my daughter getting ready for work.

Around the house... the smell of cinnamon.  I love to decorate with cinnamon sticks which makes the whole house fragrant.

I am pondering...Psalm 103 for my next bible lesson.  I love verse 2:

"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits"

I'm focusing more on gratitude and thankfulness.  He has given me many benefits - not the least of which I can call on Him at any time, day or night, and He listens!

One of my favorite things... a sparkling clean kitchen.  I never like to go off anywhere leaving  my kitchen in a mess (which often causes me to run late.)

A few plans for the rest of the week: hair appointment, work on bible lesson, having friends over Saturday evening.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing..

Wouldn't it be nice to have the time to just sit here and reflect?

Daybooking is a concept created by Peggy Hostetler.  Why not link up at her site, The Simple Woman's Daybook, and join in?  I'm thinking regular daybook-ers could publish all their posts into a book, using a company like Blurb.com, and have a journal that would be a treasure to your family.

I enjoyed my visit here. We have so much in common! I enjoy reading Amish literature and love to scrapbook as well. I also have a daughter who lives in Oklahoma! How funny is that!
I will add you to my reads.
Have a blessed evening.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love reading Amish romance books as well and also the smell of cinnamon.

Psalm 103 is one of my favorite scripture passages.

A week off! What a blessing. Hope it's relaxing and uplifting for you.
