For Today...Tuesday, Nov 9, 2010
Outside my window...a mild, sunny day. A yard full of leaves, yet trees still full of their foliage.
I am thinking...about how easy it is to get off-track when we are not diligent.
I am thankful for...friends who give encouragement, and the promises of God from which that encouragement flows.
I am wearing...jeans, short-sleeve red polo, tennis shoes that never found their way off my feet after going to a friend’s house to gather pecans.
I am creating...still calendars.
I am remembering...having little ones at home. There are many things I don’t miss, and I’m thankful for the increased independence of my children. But, there are other things I do miss about little ones.
I am going...to conquer the chaos that seems to have settled over this house.
I am reading...the most recently updated version of Pilgrim’s Progress.
I am hoping...my headache fades soon.
I am hearing...the rustling of paper as Olivia works on her afternoon school assignments beside me. Otherwise, all is very quiet and peaceful.
On my mind...spiritual growth and how it must never stop!
From the learning rooms...William Wilberforce, more electricity experiments, outlining a paper about a made-up creature (Olivia has such a delightful imagination!)
Noticing that...I have noticed more of the little details of daily life since I started doing this daybook every week.
Pondering these words... “What does an unused prayer life look like? Anxiety. Instead of connecting with God, our spirits fly around like severed power lines, destroying everything they touch.” – Paul Miller in A Praying Life
From the kitchen...very little planning. That must change ASAP.
Around the house...signs that we truly live here. Some days it makes me crazy. But, I would miss the signs of my children’s presence were they not here!
One of my favorite things... “light bulb moments” when my kids truly get what I’m teaching them.
A few plans for the rest of the week...work around the house; an early Thanksgiving celebration on Saturday with the Browning side of the family before Dad heads back to Jordan.
A picture worth sharing...the kids dressed up with Papaw when he spoke at church Sunday night.
