Daybook: 01.19.15


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.
Vance Havner 
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.

I don't think it is too early to decorate for Valentines day! I might do that this week myself. Have a good week

Valentine's Day is not that far off so go for it if you feel like decorating for it :) Does sound like a fun road trip you took this past weekend.

I really enjoy day trips too. I've got one planned next week with a friend - some seafood and then antique shops. Beautiful photo. I've also been trying to think of link ups or topics to steer my blog to. Have a great day.

I was off work yesterday but not home so I didn't get to do any blog reading. SOrry again to be late! Yesterday was beautiful here in Missouri as was the entire weekend. I knew there would be a road trip coming soon for you! Glad you enjoyed it.
Sounds like Janae and the littles are getting to come home pretty regular! THat is awesome for Grandma! :)
Looking forward to seeing what is coming here at your place!

Great question under your quote. I'm going to decorate for Valentine's day as soon as I get back from being out of town. If I were home, I'd go for it.

It was nice reading your Daybook. Gave me the nudge I needed to post something on my blog:)

Have a good week, Jerralea.

....Oh yes, they can.

It is not too early to decorate, nope! I'm sure waiting on those babies is so hard...
