Daybook: 01-11-16

2016 is here and it is time to get back into the groove! Here is my first daybook for 2016:



For Today... Monday, January 11th


Outside my window... heavy frost, cold temps  (18°) but at least there is some sunshine.


I am thinking... so many things ... do you ever feel you need a "brain dump?"  I need to make a list of everything rattling around in there so I can prioritize what to work on first ...


I am thankful... to finally start feeling better.


I am wearing... white jeans, black top, black boots, and black and white chevron sweater. 


I am creating... 2016 files


I am reading... "Circle of Quiet," by Madeleine L'Engle


I am hoping... to get a lot accomplished this week.


I am learning... to not be so hard on myself. This is a difficult lesson.


In my kitchen... this week, I will make ribs on Monday, chicken tenderloins on Tuesday, beef stew for Wednesday and for Thursday Soup Night probably Santa Fe Soup. Not sure yet what I will make for the rest of the week ... 


A favorite quote for today...

"Faith is the victory that overcomes the world." 1 John 5:4

Walking by faith is NOT easy, but it is so rewarding.

A peek into one of my days... it's been awhile since I shared photos of my grandbabies ...



One of my favorite things... this song keeps reverberating in my brain: "I'm loved by you - that's who I am, that's who I am." My heart swells with gratitude.

Enjoy this video by Chris Thomlin - "Good Good Father"

I do like that Chris Tomlin song; we have sung it a few times at church. The grands are so adorable :) Happy to hear you are feeling better!

Isn't it hard to "not be hard" on yourself? That's a real battle. Enjoyed reading your day book.

Hi Jerralea! It's great to see your grandchildren here! As you know, I just published a few pics of mine on my recent blog post too.

Thank you for this song by Chris Tomlin. I just love his voice. Being loved is the best feeling in the world, isn't it? And it pushes you to love others too, sharing that love.
I hope you have a great Tuesday! It's really cold here too. Brrr. Right now it's a balmy 8 degrees!
Blessings,
Ceil
