For Today...Tuesday, June 29, 2010
Outside my window...a dark sky growing darker each minute; first rumbles of thunder for today; much lower temperatures – today it only got up to the mid-80’s and has since dropped down from there! (Still exceedingly humid, so it still feels pretty warm, but it’s MUCH better!)
I am thinking...about how often we can see storm clouds, whether it be in the weather or in our lives, as a bad thing. So often they are a huge blessing, but it can take us a while to recognize that.
I am thankful for...the lower temperatures. I’ve had an energy today that I haven’t had in weeks!
I am wearing...brown capris, a red short-sleeved shirt, brown sandals, hair in a twist.
I am creating...plans for next week while Doug is gone to youth camp.
I am remembering...how much Olivia used to adore our seminary housing next door neighbors the Shawas. Those were really special times.
I am reading...The Noticer by Andy Andrews
I am hoping...it will be easier to get up on time tomorrow than it was today.
I am hearing...Angela practicing on the keyboard; Olivia asking questions about the book she’s reading; occasional, low, distant rumbles of thunder.
On my mind...a friend in need of prayer; our full calendar for July; the anticipation of a full August as well.
From the learning rooms...more about light; an extra reader for Olivia because she finished hers two weeks early; finally getting into piano lessons; a new PE program.
Noticing that...I haven’t even checked my to-do list today. Wonder if I’ve made any progress on it…
Pondering these words..."The reason we breathe is to sing of His glory, and for all He has done, praise the Father, praise the Son, and the Spirit in one.” ~All of Creation by Mercy Me
From the kitchen...still no menu planning. I’ve really got to get that done!
Around the house...an increasingly cluttered library. Maybe I will get in there this week to reorganize. Maybe.
One of my favorite things...big families and the hopes that ours will be big someday.
A few plans for the rest of the week...the usual – church, school, and any errands that need to be run with Doug’s help. Preparation for Doug’s trip to Birmingham next week.
