The Simple Woman's Handbook

For today.....

Outside my window...it is dark. The sun hasn't made its appearance yet.

I am thinking...about all that needs to be done today.

I am thankful... for my salvation.

From the learning rooms...Bible flannelgraphs, Art appreciation day, read alouds, and lots more fun stuff.

In the kitchen...waffles for breakfast.

I am wearing...a black top and a denim skirt.

I am creating...patchwork skirts for my girls.

I am going...to the thrift store to drop off donations.

I am wondering...if I will find some children's classic books while we're there.

I am reading... (other than the Bible) "In My Father's House" by Corrie ten Boom. This book chronicles the years of the ten Boom family before "The Hiding Place". It's a wonderful book!

I am hoping...in the Lord Jesus.

I am looking forward to...spending the entire day with my children.

I am hearing...our rooster, Elmer, crow.

Around the house...laundry needs to be done...a never-ending chore.

I am pondering...how time passes so quickly.

One of my favorite things...hearing the laughter of my children.

A few plans for the rest of the week...working in the garden, a trip to the grocery store, and (possibly) a family field trip on Saturday.

Here's a picture for thought I want to share...

This photo was taken from our front yard a few months ago...a beautiful reminder of the handiwork of our Creator. (Psalm 19:1)
