A View into My Life

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... rainy and dreary.  But it did get above freezing! 

I am thinking...of the Passion of Jesus.  I experienced an overwhelming feeling of being scandalously loved and forgiven during communion and then through the entire service.  It really messed me up for the better.  I haven't been able to shake that overwhelming grip today - hope I never do...

I am thankful for...my life.  Simple? Yes.  Boring?  Never!

From the kitchen... Tomorrow I am hoping to bake some banana muffins and apple muffins.  If I can, I will post the recipes tomorrow.  Will start marinating the roast for Sauerbraten for Small Group dinner Wednesday.

I am wearing... what I wore to church this morning - black cords, white tank top and black and white fleck sweater.

I am creating... a message God is burning in my heart.

I am going... to finish the laundry tomorrow.  Also, I need to go through my closet again.  I'm running out of clothes and I hate to shop.

I am reading... a new Lenten devotional - Reliving the Passion by Walter Wangerin, Jr.  and the norm - The One Year NLT Chronological Bible, Beth Moore's newest, So Long Insecurity (You've Been a Bad Friend to Us), and several books to prepare a message God has laid on my heart for a ladies retreat/conference. 

Pondering these words... "Jesus has many who love His Kingdom in Heaven but few who bear His Cross.  Many follow Jesus to the Breaking of the Bread, but few to the drinking of the Cup of His Passion.  They who love Jesus for His own sake, and not for the sake of comfort for themselves, bless Him in every trial and anguish of heart, no less than in the greatest joy."  Thomas a` Kempis The Imitation of Christ

I am hoping...that spring comes soon.  The kids have cabin fever and need fresh air.  We need sunshine desperately!  It's been a long winter and it doesn't seem to want to end.

I am hearing... ice dancing on TV, dog snoring on the floor, Chris snoring on the other couch. A content woman's Sunday evening.

Around the house... cleaning, laundry, cooking...life as normal

One of my favorite things...hearing my kids pray to Jesus. 

A few plans for the rest of the week... another dentist appt, Bible study Monday night, finalizing the tile order for kitchen and bath, preschool, ChristCare (small group) Wed night.
