Daybook: 07.08.13

FOR TODAY, MONDAY, JULY 8TH (My Hubby's birthday)

Outside my window...
it's already 76° at 6 a.m. - it's going to be a scorcher.

I am thinking... about pastor's sermon Sunday morning.  The title:  One Day Closer.  We are one day closer to the second coming of Christ.  Are you ready?  Do you even think about it?

I am thankful... for Amelia Baptist Church in a little Central Florida community where I became a Christian and got my start in my Christian life.  I have many precious memories of that little fellowship!

In the kitchen... spaghetti and garlic bread, and Jim has requested devil's food cake.

I am wearing...khaki capris, brown tank jeweled tank top, teal cardi

I am creating... a testimony (and so are you ...)

I am reading... nothing right now ...

I am looking forward to... my next road trip.  I think I'm addicted to going on them ...

Around the house... I'm resting this week because. I. Got. My. Closet. Cleaned. Out.

I am pondering... all the great qualities of my beloved.  I'm so thankful to celebrate his birthday today.  May there be many more years to spend with him!

A favorite quote for today...



“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too?  I thought I was the only one.” ― C.S. Lewis
… seen on twitter

One of my favorite things... sitting under a shade tree at the lake, sipping sweet tea.

A few plans for the rest of the week: There's not much going on this week, so I'm taking things day by day.

A peek into my day...

Here's a couple of my favorite pics of my hubby:

Happy Birthday to Jim! The birthday dinner sounds delicious. I love your comment on 'what I'm creating.' Wow, that puts a lot of things in perspective. Needed to hear that today. Have a good week, Jerralea.

Devils food cake!?! :) oh, I am not one to eat a lot of sweets especially since I have changed my eating habits but once in a while I crave a good old devils food cake. :) Way to go on getting tha closet cleaned out! I wish I had mine done. I took a "road trip" out to UT to see my sister at Thanksgiving. I am not too fond of them now... :) What a nice looking coupl!

Happy Birthday to your Hubby! Love the pictures.

We've done a couple road trips two weeks in a row. I like them too, but yestersday I think everybody in Alberta had the same idea cause it was bumper to bumper at about 70 mph! A wee bit stressful and not exactly what I'm looking for in a road trip! Yikes.

Well, happy birthday to Jim!

I like that sermon title very well! I've been preparing for a survey study of Revelation so I'm often thinking about the second coming. So exciting.

Well done on that closet :-)

And to answer your question about juicing and pain relief... it takes about three days. For a really bad flare up, I juice twice a day. Just trying to avoid pills as looong as possible!
