For Today...Tuesday, August 24, 2010
Outside my window...morning sun and stillness.
I am thinking...about the day.
I am thankful for...cooler temperatures, the blessing of productivity, the promise of much moving help on Thursday, friendships.
I am wearing...denim capris, sleeveless red top, and – thanks to packing – tennis shoes instead of sandals.
I am creating...plans for our new home.
I am remembering...how Mom and I used to come out of opposite ends of the house dressed similarly – same color, same shirt, same something.
I am hearing...FFH’s new song “Undone”, children eating breakfast in an unusually quiet fashion.
On my mind...a couple of families dealing with really sick children; several friends in uncertain situations; the impact of the realization that we are adopted children of God.
Noticing that...we are so much further along in packing this move than we’ve ever been. That is encouraging.
Pondering these words... “If you are a believer, and so an adopted child, this prospect satisfies you completely; if it does not strike you as satisfying, it would seem that as yet you are neither.” (The prospect being that of the promise of being with Christ, face to face.)
From the kitchen...frozen meals so we don’t have to stop packing to cook!
Around the house...many boxes, tubs, and crates.
One of my favorite things...the promise of fall and the arrival of football season!
A few plans for the rest of the week...finish packing, move to our new home in Almyra, and come back to Monticello for our last Sunday at Calvary Baptist.
A picture worth sharing...it has begun with Olivia! The past two Sundays we have come out dressed similarly with no intention of doing so.
