A Simple Woman's Day Book

FOR TODAY December 13. 2011 Tuesday

Outside my window ...
the skies are still bright and sunny!
I am thinking...
of how much I am going to enjoy my sister,
Shirley and her husband Doug when they
come to visit on thursday ... life is good!
I am thankful ...
for a the lovely gift my sister Juanita sent!

From the kitchen...
the smell of Taco Soup simmering!

I am creating...
a festive and happy home to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Bible Reading with my husband, Dick for today...
Philippians 1:27-30

God's *PEARL* for me today from the bible reading ...
Again so much in just a few verses.  When I read this before, I was
so aware of how Jesus had to rely on God and the Holy Spirit for
all that he did as he walked the earth, not on himself and his divine powers.
  This time it again sparkedthe same awesome feeling.  But today
I felt mores strongly led to the later verses that talked about times
of trouble when I am under the attack of the Enemy I am to have a
single mind - Christ, knowingthat whatever comes my way will be
used by Him to my good and for His glory.  The attack proves that 
I am making an impact and the enemy sees me as a worthy target;
the attack provides an opportunity to show my faith in Christ;
makes me know thatI am still on the right road, that the process of
God working in my life is real and active.

Quote for today...
"There is no remedy for love but to love more."
Henry David Thoreau

I am hearing...
The silence - Dick went for a ride and I love the quiet!

Green Smoothie for today...
Strawberry, banana and romaine!

One of my favorite things...
family coming to visit!!!!
A few plans for the rest of the day:
going out to check the motor home, then load garbage
in the pickup to haul later this week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

My precious Mom ... oh how I miss you.  It has been just
a few days over 5 years that you went to live with Jesus
and at times I feel you so close.  Know that I love you
dearly and always!
