For November 10th
Outside my window.....the snow is coming down heavy.
I am thinking.....about how I may need to reschedule a few things this week because of all the snow (I've already canceled a few plans for today).
I am thankful.....for coming home a day early from a weekend of family time to get ahead of this weather.
I am wearing....my flowered denim jeans, a white top with my pink shaker sweater over it, and my fuzzy pink socks.
I am hearing.....the squeak of my youngest daughter's desk as she takes school books in and out of it.
I am wondering.....if the snow predictions are accurate for the next 36 hours and if this truly is the beginning of winter. Could be another long one!
I am creating.....a list of Christmas ideas.
I am going.....to leave my car in the garage today and not venture out.
I am reading....."Transforming Grace" by Jerry Bridges
I am praying.....for a friend who is taking forever (much to her dismay) to recover from bronchitis.
I am remembering.....that I haven't taken out any of my fall decorations yet. Not sure that I should take them out anymore as I may need to instead pull out winter decorations.
I am hoping.....to "nail it" on a birthday gift I'm making for someone.
On my mind.....is how to best minister to those who have a totally different worldview than mine.
From the learning rooms.....are some writing projects for both girls. I wish they loved to write as much as I do!
I am learning....that as believers in Jesus we often don't like to talk much about "refined sins" but instead focus on the big ones.
Noticing that.....the wind is picking up a bit and swirling the snow.
I am looking forward to.....the next time my family is all together.
Pondering these words....."Your calling is radically this: Gloriously hijack every darkness with grace." ~ Ann Voskamp
From the kitchen.....maybe I'll make some applesauce this afternoon and it'll be a pot of chili for supper.
Around the house....are the dumpings of clutter from last night as we came through the door after a weekend away.
One of my favorite things.....is watching my grandson say "no" about everything, even the things he means "yes" but refuses to say it. He's really a little character.
A few plans for the rest of the week.....include Bible study tonight, hopefully work unless we really do get snowed in, a couple of meetings, and continued cleaning projects as I determine what stays and what goes.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you....
Hard to catch a picture as the wind is blowing, the snow is snowing, and the chick-a-dee is flitting quickly in and out at the birdfeeder just under the porch roof.
