FOR TODAY, Monday, May 19th
Outside my window... partly cloudy and 61° so far
I am thinking... I heard of several people passing away in the last few days; yet, I'm hearing of new babies on the way. I'm thinking of Carl Sandburg's words:
“A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.”
Besides our grandtwins who will be born soon, I have learned we have a grand-niece or nephew who will come in November. Congratulations to Bethany and Andy - and to the new grandparents, Jim's brother Carl and his wife, Mary.
I am thankful... for the time we got to be together with two of our three girls Sunday afternoon.
In the kitchen... a chicken in the crockpot ....
I am wearing... black capris - the first of the season, and my favorite animal print top.
I am creating...an example by living my life. I try to remind myself all the time of that fact because I do not want to thoughtlessly lead someone astray. I want to be a testimony for Christ.
I am reading... a new Dee Henderson book, "Undetected." I so enjoy her books!
I am looking forward to... our Colorado trip.
Around the house... roses blooming - I'm loving it!
I am pondering...grace ... such a gift, and also a responsibility. I'm thinking of the saying of Jesus, "For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required."
A favorite quote for today...(okay, so today, you get two!) I saw this on Laura, from IHeartPlanner's blog:
Mark Twain, “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”
In other words, do the most unpleasant thing on your list first, and then the rest of the day only gets better from there!
One of my favorite things... soft breezes blowing
A few plans for the rest of the week: filing my sheet music, and continuing to organize supply cabinets at work.
A peek into my day...
These gorgeous roses are everywhere in my neck of the woods!
