FOR TODAY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 19TH
Outside my window... a sunny chilly morning
I am thinking... it's been 17 days without sweet tea. I think it was a good idea to start this in the winter! It hasn't been too hard so far ...
I am thankful... for fresh mercy and grace every morning. (See Lamentations 3:22-23.) I'm probably one of the most needy children the Lord has!
In the kitchen... my go-to chicken and dumplings - cooked chicken from the freezer and dumplings previously made, rolled out and frozen. Assemble in a boiling pot of broth and cook for 40 minutes. Done and delicious.
I am wearing... red shirt, scarf and flats paired with a gray sweater and dark blue skinnies.
I am creating... 2015 files - I'm color-coding them with washi tape. It takes longer but worth the effort.
I am reading... "Deadly Devotion" by Sandra Orchard
I am praying ... for my church. Our members need uplifting and encouragement.
I am looking forward to... Janae and the twins coming home in February.
Around the house... I'm thinking, "Is it too early to decorate for Valentine's Day?" It seems a little sparkle is needed.
A favorite quote for today...
If you stand on the Word, you do not stand with the world.
I wonder ... can the world tell the difference?
One of my favorite things... free Saturdays and road trips. We went on a little road trip this past Saturday to Kentucky. We ate catfish at the Blue Grass Restaurant in LaCenter and visited a couple of our favorite landmarks. Although very windy, the sun was shining and we enjoyed ourselves.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I'm working on the Annual Report for my part time church, 2015 files for my full time church, and planning my editorial calendar for the blog. I'm thinking of a couple new ideas, one which would include a weekly link up!
A peek into my day... from Saturday's road trip. The sky was so beautiful that day.
