Simple Woman's Daybook: October 6

Outside my window…the sun is shining and the temperature is perfect!!

I am thinking…that even though we have been very sick with a stomach virus this week, It has caused me to slow down and just spend time holding my babies.

I am thankful for…a pantry and refrigerator that is full of food. God has blessed us and supplied our every need. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who are just struggling to get by.

I am praying…for my aunt (mother’s sister) today. She went to the ER early this morning because her heart rate out of control. They had to shock her heart and now she is in CCU.

From the kitchen…not much since we are all recovering form a nasty stomach bug. I think I will bake some potatoes for supper.

I am wearing…brown jogging pants w/ a green t-shirt.

I am reading…. For fun: The Thorn by Beverly Lewis

For edification/encouragement: Women Counseling Women (This book was edited by Elise Fitzpatrick. It has several authors and one of them is my pastor’s wife)

Bible reading: Working my way through 1 Corinthians this month and also finishing up my Precept study of Genesis Part 1

I am hoping…for some much needed rain.

I am creating…a Home that is a Haven. My project this week was to burn a candle everyday and pray for a peaceful home. I bought a new Pumpkin Spice candle and it smells wonderful!!

Around the house…Olivia is still napping, Noah is awake and having a snack in his highchair, all the doors and windows are open, everyone seems to be recovering from the sickness.

One of my favorite thing…whipped cream on top of my morning coffee…Yummy!!

A few plans for the rest of the week…looking at more houses’s this week (we think we may have found one we will make an offer on), running a few errands tomorrow, cleaning and laundry.

And a picture…

An evening on the beach watching a beautiful sunset!!
