For Today - The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today

Looking out my window,
I can see our free-range chickens pecking and scratching in the yard.

I am thinking (and praying!)
about the election.

I am thankful
to know that no matter what the outcome of the election is,
God is still on the throne.  

One of my favorite things
is this time of year: I love fall, y'all!  :)

I am creating
a cross-stitch butterfly bookmark for my mom.

I am wearing
a long denim skirt, a blue print shirt, and my toasty warm insulated socks that hubby got me from the farm store.

Love, love, this book!

I am hoping
that our new pullets start laying eggs - soon!

I am learning
that the Lord is all-sufficient; no matter the circumstances, no matter the situation, no matter what, He is all I need.

In my kitchen,
 we are having Ethiopian veggies and 5 grain bread for supper tonight. Yum!  :)

In the school room,
Ian is doing his Bible readings, Aaron, Asher, and Naomi are working on a Grammar lesson. And Natalie is working on Geography.

In my garden,
there is a beautiful, sparkly frost.

Shared quote:
"God whispers to us in our pleasure,
speaks to us in our conscience,
but shouts in our pain;
it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world."
The Problem of Pain 
~C.S. Lewis

A moment from my day:

Aaron's tarantula molted 2 weeks ago. In this photo, he is holding the actual tarantula and the molt is on the right.

Linking up with Peggy.


  1. Taking a break from working at home, I really enjoyed reading your post. Blessings!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Valerie. I hope your day is blessed beyond measure. :)

  2. Thank you for sharing your slice of life with us on Simple Woman's Daybook post. I enjoyed reading your post.

    Was fascinated to see the tarantula and its molt. That was cool. Although I don't think I'd be so happy to be actually holding it.

    Here's wishing you a beautiful day and a wonderful week ahead.


  3. Hi Brenda,
    I agree - holding the tarantula isn't something I am interested in doing. But I will probably eventually get talked into it by my children. They seem to be fearless. :) Thanks for stopping by for a visit. :)
    Have a blessed week!

  4. God IS all-sufficient, and He is STILL on the throne. I read Lewis' PROBLEM OF PAIN many years ago. It's worth revisiting.
