FOR TODAY. . .November 23, 2009
Outside my window... the street is quiet. No kids and parents walking to school today. The kids have the week off for Thanksgiving break. The air is still and cool.
I am hearing...my son and his friend in the kitchen, laughing it up.
I am thinking... how tiring it is to carry everyone's concerns.
I am thankful for... friends who remind me that I don't have to.
I am wearing... jeans and sweatshirt.
I am going... to spend the day doing laundry and house keeping.
I am reading... a book for a future blog review. Looking for something light for my personal reading.
I am hoping... to finish up a project that's been in my sewing basket for too long.
On my mind...sorting through my priorities, trying to decide what to keep, what to let go.
Pondering these words... seaglass. How much we're like pieces of seaglass, all rough and sharp, and life experience teaches us and smooths the edges. Though it may take lots of tumbling in rough waters for it to happen. I recently read a quote to this effect on someone's blog. I'm sorry I can't remember where it was, but it has been a comfort, so thank you if you're reading this!
Noticing that... "I need to continually fill my mind with things of Christ in order to overcome the things of this world". (I do remember finding this on Peggy's Daybook last week. Thank you, Peggy.)
From the kitchen... Cranberry chicken, garlic potatoes, green beans, cornbread
One of my favorite things~
From my picture journal...
