FOR TODAY… January 5, 2009

Outside My Window…c-c-c-cold rain falling…maybe ice later! Brrr. Bring on the hot cocoa!!

I am thinking…about the Bible studies I will be working through this year. I am looking forward to finishing up the study on God’s Sovereignty, and beginning a new one from Regular Baptist Press. I’m having a hard time picking just one!

I am thankful for…our good friends, the Butlers’, visiting us this past weekend; for the record attendance we had at church yesterday (even though I had to be home with a sick child), and for the dear lady who trusted Christ as her savior last night after church. What a blessing to have a birds’ eye view of God’s miraculous work!

From the learning rooms…homeschooling resumes, but we are easing back into it. Mitchell resumes on Wednesday, and Lauren is doing half days this week.

From the kitchen…right now, it’s empty. I buy groceries on Mondays…but you probably gathered that since every Monday my pantry is bare! I am making my menu today and buying groceries.

I am creating…new computer graphics with my Paint Shop Pro X2 program.

I am going…to take down Christmas decorations today. 😦

I am reading…my Bible through using a new schedule this year. I’m also reading some devotional books, and a book of poems that a friend of mine wrote! πŸ™‚

I am hoping…to see the Lord work in my life this year. I see many areas that need growth and improvement.

I am hearing…the pitter-patter of rain on the roof.

Around the house…everyone is subdued from two weeks of being out of routine. Laci is running a fever and sleeping a lot. Things are abnormally quiet!

One of my favorite things…blogging!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Homeschooling, housework, and lots of time cuddling with my children, enjoying the fact that we survived the Holidays!

Here is picture thought I am sharing…a family I’m praying for:

Jeremy, Amanda, Josiah, Jonathan and Judson Tyler are Missionaries to Brazil.
I’ve known Amanda since I was fifteen. We met at summer church camp and have kept in touch for fifteen years now! She and her family were such a blessing to us when they were here on December 14th. They are getting close to leaving for Brazil!

I am thankful for men and ladies who are willing to go anywhere to serve the Lord, and I desire to be the same way.

Have a wonderful week!

Special thanks to the hostess of the Simple Woman’s Daybook.

    What book of poems are you reading?

    I hope you get your groceries before the ice forms on trees and roads.

    Stay warm. Give the kids hugs from me.

    Love you!
