FOR TODAY July 21, 2008…
Outside My Window… I see the haze of a very hot & humid day – dragonflies buzzing & butterflies flittering about the hayfield and the garden.
I am thinking… about cocooning – a rather modern term for shutting oneself up to avoid the problems and conflicts that surround & sometimes suffocate us. As a christian, this is not acceptable. In times like these, we are to go boldly before the throne of grace, leave our burdens & worries, and tell others of this wonderful privilege and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Easier said than done.
I am thankful for… VBS. With an average nightly attendance of 90 children, 9 children made a profession of faith – more than I had originally known of. Hallelujah!
From the kitchen… strong coffee & steamed milk = the best drink in the world
I am wearing… a fairly standard attire for a summer work day around the house: shorts & tank top.
I am creating… I started another round ripple afghan for one of my best friends. She is such a treasure and prays for me unceasingly. Her kidneys are not functioning so well and I want to make her a cuddly lap blanket in her favorite color. I’ll post a picture on my crochet blog when I’m finished.
I am going… I have a music lesson, the boys have taekwondo class and we’ll probably make a quick trip into Walmart or Kroger at some point today. There is also a cookout with our homeschool support group for the “double digits”, but we’ll probably have to pass on that, as it is scheduled the same time as above.
I am reading… A Taste of Home’s Church Supper magazine that I bought at Sam’s this past week.
I am hoping… my husband has a quiet shift at work this evening. It is hot, hot, hot! You’d think people would want to stay calm, cool, and out of trouble when it’s like this. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
I am hearing… My dogs are barking at something. Grandpa must be outside.
Around the house… With two back to back weeks of constant coming and going, my house looks like a dumping ground. It will take a day or two to get it back in working order.
One of my favorite things… the smell of honeysuckle
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Our goal is 4 taekwondo classes + 1 weapons class per week.
