FOR TODAY, MONDAY, APRIL 9TH
Outside my window...weather: beautiful, but cool
I am thinking...I am glad to be home. We went on a trip to Arkansas last week. We had a great time, but it's always wonderful to be back home.
I am thankful...I got to see two of my daughters for Easter and my other daughter and son-in-law are coming home this week!
In the kitchen...ham and pinto beans with cornbread. I'm using up the rest of the Easter ham.
I am wearing...my lime green shirt with a lime green, brown and cream skirt. Since it's cool, I added a brown cardi to go with it. This outfit matches my new cream and lime green purse I found while thrifting this week. Being color coordinated makes me happy!
I am hoping... the homemade laundry detergent my daughter and I made works well. Tonight, we are going to try it out for the first time.
I am looking forward to...seeing my daughter and son-in-law.
Around the house...I've got an organizing project in mind for the bottom of the pantry cabinet.
A favorite quote for today...
Whenever I’m tempted to despair about the shape of American Christianity, I’m reminded that Jesus never promised the triumph of the American church; He promised the triumph of the church. Most of the church, in heaven and on earth, isn’t American. Maybe the hope of the American church is right now in Nigeria or Laos or Indonesia.
… Russell Moore article, The Next Billy Graham Might Be Drunk Right Now
This quote is definitely food for thought. I admit I'm guilty of thinking of the "church" in context of being American, but that is not so. It is a worldwide church!
One of my favorite things... is my new set of Blue Willow plates, saucers and cups that I found at the thrift / antique store in Arkansas. I've been wanting Blue Willow forever. My hubby is the greatest - he encouraged me to go back and buy them.
A few plans for the rest of the week: a visit to my sister-in-law, visiting with my kids, finishing up Psalm 10 for this week's bible study.
A peek into my day...
Even though my kids are grown, I must dye Easter Eggs at Easter time. It's a family tradition! I love the bright colors ...
