Daybook: 10-06-14

FOR TODAY, Monday, October 6th 

Outside my window... cloudy, a few sprinkles and 57°

I am thinking... the twins are 4 months old today. I can't wait to see them at Christmas.

I am thankful...for His unfailing love.

In the kitchen... ham and Hawaiian bread tonight.  I'm thinking cheesy potatoes would go well with it. I'm going to make a peach cobbler to top it off.

I am wearing... dressy jeans and a coral draped tunic with a white cami. I love coral and am trying to work it into my wardrobe as much as possible.

I am creating... a new series of blog posts:  "31 Days of Life on the Journey." I love that it is developing in me the habit of writing everyday.

I am reading... Creston Mapes "The Crittendon Files" series. I'm almost done with book one.  I'm also reading (at bedtime) Max Lucado's "Mocha with Max."  It is so good, I finished it and started over so I could take notes on it.

I am looking forward to... my next stay-cation which is in a couple weeks.  My plan is to tackle the linen closet and make it not only organized but pretty.  Believe me, it is going to be a big job ...

Around the house... I can now look out at clean windows and see my rose bushes in all their glory.

I am pondering... all the things I've been reading in "Mocha with Max."  For instance, Max writes about God's unfailing love.  Stop a moment and think about what that means. Unfailing.  Always perfect.  He loves you with a perfect love. He knows just how to love you. His love never fails you.  He never has to say "I should have done this," or "I should have done that."  A lot to think about ...

A favorite quote for today...

"People who have faith are faithful."
Ellston Chapman

If your faith is real, then it follows that you are a faithful person.

One of my favorite things... a bowl of chili.  I love the start of chili/stew/soup season.

A few plans for the rest of the week: more 31 day posting; making my fall banner; and designing a fall vignette for the top of my dining table that I have dreamed up.

A peek into my day...



A recent photo from our road trip to Kentucky Dam Marina. What a vision of beautiful blues!

dinner sounds yummy! As you might tell from my daybook, most of us are kinda hungry around here right now :)
Max never fails to give me lots to think about. Great author and speaker.
Beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing your 31 days. I don't always get to comment but I enjoy stopping by.
