Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of April 13, 2009

For Today:


Outside my window: the sun is shining and the temperature is already 39 degrees, on its way up to the high 40's.

I am thinking: that it is very lonely in the house without Meg. Today is my first day "alone" since we had to put her down.

From the learning rooms: life and all it's pleasures and pursuits without Jesus is meaningless

I am thankful for: the Cross. I am ever thankful for Jesus' willingness to take upon Himself the weight of my sins, be beaten and bruised by the evil of this world, including that which lives inside me, and to triumphantly rise from the dead on the third day, overcoming satan's rule, once and for all. Thank you Jesus!

From the kitchen: the dishwasher is clean awaiting me to empty it, my tea is "cozy" in the pot and there are leftovers for lunch

I am wearing: my pink Snoopy plaid pj bottoms, long sleeve white t-shirt, pink cotton pullover and green cozy socks w/ my pink "booty" slippers... but not for long - I need to shower soon & put "real" clothes on to run a few errands

I am reading: Ecclesiastes in my Bible, 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper and my devotionals.

I am hoping: that I have the motivation this week to do my assignment and start my Spring cleaning

I am creating: half done that baby blanket.

I am hearing: the clock ticking on the kitchen wall, the whir of the clothes flopping around in the dryer.

Around the house: there is a load of laundry in the dryer, one in the washer and one waiting for its turn.

One of my favorite things: enjoying the company of friends over a good meal, like yesterday's Easter dinner

A few plans for the rest of the week: working on and completing my assignment, Spring cleaning, returning the new "piece of crap" printer to the store, getting together with A to plan a bridal shower for N&J, finish my laundry and ironing

I love your blog Sue. Thanks so much for visiting mine. I linked over to yours through your great comment on mine. I love the format - I will visit often.

What a beautiful picture of your sweet little Meg. I've been there before and am about to go down that road again soon, I fear. What a great God we have to give you 15 years with her.
