The Simple Woman's Daybook for May 6, 2013 a day late



FOR TODAY

Outside my window... it's sunshiny but rain is expected.

I am thinking...
about staring school in about 10 minutes.

I am thankful...
that Jason and I were able to attend the funeral of my friend's (and his cousin's) father.

In the kitchen...
spaghetti and meatballs in the crock pot! I'll make it just before we leave for practices and set it on "warm".

I am wearing...
sweats and Buckeye shirt.  Never out of season, here :)

I am creating... a book review in my head.  I hope to publish it soon.

I am going... to order a swimsuit for R-girl.  Soon.

I am wondering... why my dogs are going crazy this morning.

I am reading... The Hidden Art of Homemaking ... need to finish Chapter 2!

I am hoping... and clinging to the cross.

I am looking forward to... a day "off" tomorrow.  Of course, we'll probably go grocery shopping ...

I am learning... that I can empty the dishwasher in less time than it takes the coffee pot to brew.

Around the house... let's just move right along ...

I am pondering... Sunday evening's sermon.  Christians, God is not a good luck charm for the United States even as he was not for Israel against the Philistines in 1 Sam 4.  Powerful sermon.  Trust the Lord himself for himself.

A favorite quote for today... my friend brought this to Bible Study one day and I loved it:

[May we]…see [Jesus] at every step as our mighty Substitute, our Representative, our Head, our Surety, our Proxy,--the Divine Friend who undertook to stand in our stead, and by the priceless merit of His sufferings, to purchase our redemption.—Was He scourged?  It was that “through His stripes we might be healed.”—Was He condemned, though innocent?  It was that we might be acquitted though guilty.—Did He wear a crown of thorns?  It was that we might wear the crown of glory.—Was He stripped of His raiment?  It was that we might be clothed in everlasting righteousness.—Was He mocked and reviled?  It was that we might be honored and blessed.—Was He reckoned a malefactor, and numbered among transgressors?  It was that we might be reckoned innocent, and justified from all sin.
J.C. Ryle (taken from Expository Thoughts on the Gospels: Matthew 27. p. 392)
 
One of my favorite things... spending time with my dear husband.  Even if it's driving an hour and a half each way for a funeral, I just love to be with him.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
um, soccer, baseball, piano, art with friends, soccer, soccer, soccer, soccer, soccer.

A peek into my day...
no pics today.
