FOR TODAY, THE LAST MONDAY IN SEPTEMBER
Outside my window... a cool beautiful fall morning. Temp is 54°
I am thinking... about Home today. I heard this great song by The Martins. It's been on my flash-drive for months now but this is the first time I really focused and listened to it. Here is the chorus to "Come On In:"
Come on inWelcome homeYou are lovedAnd you belong here nowNo matter where you've beenCome on inCome on in
Okay, I can't resist sharing this - here is the YouTube version of the whole song:
I am thankful... for the week off I just had. I enjoyed it immensely.
In the kitchen... it will be pasta night since I have an appointment after work. It seems that Mondays often end up being some kind of pasta ... tonight's will be traditional spaghetti and garlic bread.
I am wearing... a wild multi-colored tunic and black capris and sandals. It's supposed to get up to 84° so I'm wearing sandals and capris while I still can!
I am creating...banners. I made one for our bedroom and now I'm working on one to go in the dining room. I may have a new obsession ...
I am going...back to work. Stay-cation is over.
I am reading... I know it's crazy, with having a week off, but I didn't read! Too many other things grabbing my attention, I guess.
I am hoping...to get back into the groove at work.
I am looking forward to...a trip up to Giant City park. We are planning on going up there week after next. There should be some fall leaf color then - I'm already beginning to see some change.
Around the house... things are looking good!
I am pondering... a challenging portion of scripture: Ephesians 5:15-17. It encourages me to make the most of my time.
A favorite quote for today...
"If God can use small things to change the course of History, He could even use YOU!"
I saw this on YouTube. If God can use a small inanimate thing like the rock David threw to kill Goliath and gain a victory for the Israelites, what could He do with a sold-out believer?
One of my favorite things...something newly organized. Right now, I'm loving my storage cabinet in the utility room. And, ta-da! The new file system is DONE!
A few plans for the rest of the week: I guess you could say this is pamper week, I have appointments both with the nail salon and with my stylist. The rest of the week I plan to continue getting my 31 Days of Life on the Journey series ready.
A peek into my day...
