Journaling on the Journey

On Mondays, I like to post a Journal entry that records the things I'm thinking, praising and planning for the week.

I use the daybook format created by Peggy Hostetler to do that, and I will continue to do so. I will also add a few categories of my own from time to time.

So, let's get to it:

For Today... Monday, February 22

Outside my window... partly cloudy and 37° ... after a couple glorious spring-like days ...

I am thinking... about our Valentine Banquet - that we had last night - and during the worship time, something was said that resonated with me:

"It's never too late to give your life to Him and start a new beginning." ... Terry Robinson

(This also qualifies as a "A favorite quote for today".) It's never too late to begin again.

I am thankful... for the smile on my granddaughter's face when she noticed me come into Dairy Queen on Sunday.  We weren't expecting to see each other, but what a happy surprise!

I am wearing... white ankle jeans, brown top, brown chevron scarf and gold sweater. Oh yeah, wearing my brown booties, too.

I am reading... I've not been reading lately because I've been trying to catch up on other things. I miss it, though, and hope to start back soon ...

In my kitchen... the crockpot is full of chicken cooking so that this week I can make chicken pot pie and chicken and dumplings ... and maybe even White Chicken Chili.

A peek into one of my days...

Driving home after a Saturday out enjoying a sunny day!

One of my favorite things... I love to change out decor from time to time. I put out a few spring flowers out to cheer myself up. I was noticing that March 13 is when Daylight Savings Time begins. Can't wait!

Post Script - I'm crushing on this poem right now. It's so beautiful! Read Christine Malkemes' Contentment Begins at Dawn. I know I mentioned this Friday, but it is good enough to mention twice.


On my mind:  We've been studying Ephesians in my Sunday School class. Last Sunday, we talked about Christian marriage and submission (always a fun topic!) and this week we will talk about one of my favorite subjects: spiritual armor. Did you remember to suit up today?

I want to accomplish this week: some filing at my home office. I've done so well at work, now it is time to up my game at home. I also want to print off some of my pictures and do some rearranging of my photos. 

Scripture for the weekgiving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 5:20

Always a good reminder to suit up with our armor :) I do the same with chicken in the crockpot; will put in about 5 pounds of it and then shred it and use it for various recipes. Makes meal planning sometimes very easy :)
