For Today…September 7, 2009
Outside My Window…the temperature is rising and clouds are building. We are in store for afternoon thunder boomers and glorious rain in Southeast Mississppi.
I am thinking…of the many things I need to do today and how to justify centering on things I’d rather do. 🙂
From the learning room…the stack of non-fiction reading material grows faster than I can ingest and digest it.
I am thankful for…and to God, family, church and country. I’m thankful for freedom and those that have insured we have it.
From the kitchen…comes the sound of silence. Absolutely nothing is happening in that room at present time. For that I am also thankful.
I am wearing…a brown Indian import dress I’ve had for almost two decades. It’s comfortable, and each time I think of deleting it from my wardrobe, I balk and wait for another time. I’m wearing an apron over it and nothing on my feet.
I am creating…a surprise for a new bloggy friend.
I am going…to stay as close to home as possible today. If we don’t have an emergency we’ll not leave this place.
I am reading…several books at once. Per usual my Bible reading is ongoing. In addition, I’m reading Culture of Corruption by Michelle Malkin, The Pictureland of the Heart by William Allen Knight, Peter H. Odegard’s The American Republic, and Confronting Jezebel by Steve Sampson.
I am hearing…the lulling whir of fans.
Around the house…there is much to be done…inside and out. But today is Labor Day…a day for relaxation. (Go figure.)
One of my favorite things…is spending time with our grandkids.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
My true love has physical therapy on Tuesday and a follow-up doctor’s appointment on Wednesday. We’ll go to church on Wednesday evening. Saturday we’ll visit with my parents.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…though it shows more than I care to divulge (the chair I long to replace, the dust I’m saving for prosperity…) this picture picture depicts the spirit of spontaneity and love-of-life of our granddaughter Rachel.
and…a friendly game of Candy Land with Preston and Rachel. Would you believe they showed me no mercy?
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
