Daybook - 01.14.13


FOR TODAY, MONDAY, JANUARY 14

Outside my window...
6:41 a.m., 25°, dark ... dreary ...


I am thinking... of how hard life can be, and how it seems some people make it even harder on themselves.

I am thankful... for having a job.  In today's economy, it is a great blessing.

In the kitchen... chicken and rice tonight.

I am wearing... dark brown pants, dark brown beaded tank and a cranberry cardigan.

I am creating... a series of posts on being fearless.


I am wondering... why everyone is so afraid of the name of Jesus.  Atheists fight so hard against anyone saying it or displaying it.  I think deep down, they know there is really power in His name!

I am reading...a new-to-me author, E. E. Kennedy, "Irregardless of Murder."  (I like whodunits!)

I am hoping... to see results of prayer in the lives of certain family and friends.  God knows who they are!

I am learning...to trust Him more and more as I learn more about Him.

Around the house...everything looking cozy and comfy - makes it hard to leave home everyday!

I am pondering... the goodness of God and how He has extended grace to me - though I am so undeserving

A favorite quote for today...


"We have not out sinned God's ability to forgive us." ~@BethMooreLPM #praiseJesus #passion2013

How comforting to know that!

One of my favorite things...animal prints.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  board meeting, visiting the hair salon, going out to dinner on Saturday with some of our favorite people, Bro. Terry and Sister Barbara Eaves.

A peek into my day...



Last year, we had a warm winter and this shot was taken in January 2012.  I just wanted to remind myself that more spring-like days will eventually come!

It is important to remember that winter doesn't last forever...I like that you posted the picture of flowers, I did that, too...Keeping in mind things to look forward to in the coming weeks helps too. Enjoy your evening out.
