FOR TODAY…February 2, 2009

Outside my window…It’s dark! The sun is making its ascent over the horizon, peeking through the beautiful pine tree forests around us. It promises to be another warm winter day, highs in the upper 50s and upper 60s this week. I’m so glad I made some winter comfort food the last two weeks, because it would be out of place this week!

I am thinking…about the movie “Fireproof”. I had really wanted to see it, but we could not afford to purchase it right now. I know watching a movie is no big deal, and I did not pray about it! However, the Lord blessed me by letting me see it! A kind lady in our church happened to have it with her at church last night and offered to loan it to me. She had already seen it! The Lord is so good to me!
I’m also thinking about how blessed I am to have a husband who is truly my hero.

I am thankful for…God’s provision for the month of January! I cannot believe that February is already here.

From the learning rooms…we are busy, as usual. We are past 100 days of school! I can’t believe it! We are definitely on the downhill side of the school year.

From the kitchen…Homemade Bean burritos, stay-a-bed stew, Italian Noodle Skillet, homemade pizza, and Lasagna are on the menu for the week. I’m still trying to decide about dessert…

I am wearing…my pj’s and my warm, fluffy robe! We are having a chilly start to the day.

I am creating…this blog post. 🙂 And that’s about it, right now!

I am going…to Ohio and Illinois this month.

I am reading…still finishing up a devotional book and the book Teachers of Good Things. I hope to finish these soon and begin some new books.

I am hoping…I get to meet Kristy, a lady I met through the blogging world and to see Terry’s cousin, Misty, during our trip up north! 🙂

I am hearing…my space heater blowing and my typing.

Around the house…peace and quiet and a little left over chaos from a busy Sunday!

One of my favorite things…watching Columbo on DVD. Yes, I own the entire series on DVD. What can I can I say? I love Peter Falk. Now you know. Please don’t hold it against me. 🙂

A few plans for the rest of the week: Grocery shopping, homeschooling, planning for our trip, attending church.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. Psalm 27:5
I am so thankful for my Rock – the Lord Jesus Christ!
Special thanks to the hostess of The Simple Woman’s Daybook.

    50's and 60's?!?!?!?!?! Can I please come visit???? LOL It is currently 10 below here. WAAAAAAAA!!!!! LOL (Can you tell I'm having a little pity-party here? “Forgive me Lord”) 😀


  7. That looks like such a beautiful walk. I love when I am somewhere, sometimes doing nothing terribly important and some bit of sacred scripture come floating through like God whispering to remember Him in all things.

    Valarie, I really liked your picture thought as well…

    Also, you and I have something else in common. I also LOVE Columbo but I do not own it on DVD. I'll have to put that on my wish list!
