FOR TODAY… January 19, 2009
Outside my window…cloudy skies loom above, but that means neither rain nor snow, as Arkansas winters are often very drab. The temperature will be dropping steadily today. The weather will be cool most of the week. I am beginning to wonder if winter has bypassed us altogether, or if it merely making a late appearance this year.
I am thinking…about Psalm 51.
I am thankful for…my Saviour Who is so very patient with me!
From the learning rooms…we are beginning Arkansas state history this week in fourth grade! I am excited about this. I love my state and am eager to re-learn its history. I took it in 8th grade, which was, uh-hem, just a few years ago. 😉
From the kitchen…Taco Soup, Chili, and perhaps some cookies this week!
I am wearing…a red long sleeve shirt, brown corduroy skirt, and my New Balance tennis shoes from my walk.
I am creating…lesson plans, my menu and grocery list.
I am going…to venture to the store this week, the first time since my shoulder injury.
I am reading…my Bible, and the book Teachers of Good Things by Francie Taylor
I am hoping…to be able to get some housework done today.
I am learning…to be more selfless and flexible.
I am hearing…my precious baby laughing and babbling. If only I had an interpreter for most of it! 🙂
Around the house…everything needs a good cleaning! Being injured has really hampered my housework routine. I may even take a day off of school to get things back in order.
One of my favorite things…eating buttery popcorn!
A few plans for the rest of the week: To accomplish the mundane tasks that have piled up. To spend some quality time with my children reading, playing, and laughing. To continue in my 31 Days of Proverbs 31. To work on not stressing when life’s pressures increase.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
Two precious girls enjoying their Christmas present! I am thankful for the three girls God has given me to raise to be godly women. The Lord truly has a sense of humor as I am not a seamstress or a great cook or an expert on womanhood, yet He gave me three girls! He knew what He was doing, however. These girls drive me to my knees as I seek His help in teaching and training them. It is quite clear that on my own, I simply cannot do it!
