FOR TODAY, Monday, September 8th
Outside my window... sunny and 63°. I love a day like this!
I am thinking... how things go much smoother if you take time to plan first.
I am thankful... for color. Think how boring our world would be without it!
In the kitchen... crockpot chicken cacciatore. This is a new recipe, so hoping my picky ones will eat it.
I am wearing... white capris and white tunic with a coral cardigan.
I am creating... a testimony. Let me never forget that!
I am reading... "The Revealing" by Suzanne Woods Fisher (another Amish fiction book)
Around the house... a few bits of fall are here and there - my fall welcome signs are on both doors ...
I am pondering...
Psalm 134, one of the shortest chapters in the Bible, was written to priests on the graveyard shift: "Behold, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, who by night stand in the house of the LORD! Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. The LORD who made heaven and earth bless you from Zion!"
… David Jeremiah, Turning Point Devotional 09/03/14
Are you in a graveyard shift in your life right now? Are you putting in hours of worrying in the darkest hours before dawn? Instead of counting sheep, count ways to praise God.
A favorite quote for today...
FIFO, not GIGO - Rev. Tom Yates
Instead of garbage in, garbage out, fill your heart and mind with faith. Faith in, faith out.
One of my favorite things... chilled grapes.
A few plans for the rest of the week: kind of the same as last week, "... finishing up the file system and doing some end of the month reports for my part-time church." I didn't get too far last week ...
A peek into my day... the day was almost over at the lake last Saturday ...
