The Simple Woman's Daybook for February 2, 2015


Outside my window... it's still dark, although I can tell that it won't be for long ... the sky has that dark, navy blue color that shows the sun is almost ready to rise.  There's a dog barking and cars occasionally driving past.  The city is starting to stir.

I am thinking... about tempering Christian liberty and knowledge with wisdom and love.  Another fantastic sermon from my pastor yesterday. He's preaching on 1 Cor 10:31-11:1.  Yesterdays sermon was on the verses where Paul tells us to not offend anyone.  Such a sweeping, all-encompassing instruction.

I am thankful... that the weather yesterday wasn't as bad as had been predicted.  We got a small percentage of the expected snow.

I am wearing... pajamas, but plan to wear jeans and a sweater later.

I am creating... a menu plan and grocery list.  What should we have for dinner this week?

I am going... to a Retreat Committee Meeting and then hang out with my friend Amanda.  Can't wait! Aw, woke with a sick kid.  Canceled plans for today.

I am wondering... how school will go this morning.  Everyone is dragging after playing late after church last night.

I am reading... For the Children's Sake and Start Here for our new Charlotte Mason Group.  Anna is doing a great job coordinating it!  We meet for the first time next Monday and I'm really trying to have my homework done.  I'm bad at that, pray for me :)

I am hoping... we get a lot done this morning.

I am looking forward to... visiting with Amanda.  In the fall we saw each other more because our kids were in the same homeschool choir.  I've missed that.

I am learning... about the ramifications of the idea that children are born persons. 

Around the house... [sigh] I really ought to vacuum.

I am pondering... CS Lewis' conversion to Christianity.  Jacobs does a fantastic job in this chapter of The Narnian ... come back and join us!

A favorite quote for today... I'll have more from The Narnian on my Wednesdays with Words linkup!
"Now the story of Christ is simply a true myth: a myth working on us in the same way as the others, but with tremendous difference that it really happened: and one must be content to accept it in the same way, remembering that it is God's myth where the others are men's myths: i.e. the Pagan stories are God expressing himself through the minds of poets, using such images as He found there, while Christianity is God expressing himself through "real things." (C.S. Lewis as quoted by Alan Jacobs in The Narnian, pg 149, italics Lewis's)

A few plans for the rest of the week... just the normal, school, basketball, piano lessons - no organ -turning 42.

A peek into my day... I could get used to supervising while M-girl cooks.
