The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ May 17th & "Stuff"

I am glad you had a few minutes to drop by.  It is always good to *see* you! However, I should warn you, it has been an unusual evening. 
Maybe I should back up…..yesterday, Monday, was an awesome day….gorgeous, I felt good, the kids were…well, kids. 

But this evening, I seem to keep running into news that isn’t good….friends with health issues, families that are hurting, and those
in need.
These are trying times for many.
My heart is heavy.
I want to help.
I’m afraid my Daybook post reflects this, my mood.  
 But I know the ONE who wrote the book, the One who designed all things.  While my heart is heavy, I am secure in HIS Word. He said, He would never leave or forsake us ~ I know this is true.  In HIM there is hope,
always ~ HOPE.

Outside my window...  it is night, clear as crystal (as they say) with a beautiful, bright, full moon.  I would love to go down to the river tonight, just to sit and watch the moon’s reflection dance on the water.

I am thinking...  ~ there is a lot of sickness and sadness in our fallen world.

 I am thankful for...  ~ HIM who first loved me.

I am wearing...  ~ old, comfortable clothes….barefoot
always, barefoot.

I am remembering...  ~ happy times
Trying to remember… ~ when life became complicated

I am praying … ~ for many special people and friends.
(see the sidebar for a partial list)

I am going...  ~ to try to be more diligent in my prayer time.

I am currently reading...  ~ my Bible, online and a devotional I rec’d from a friend, who was kind enough to share

I am hoping...  ~ I can do more to help others.

On my mind...  ~ those that are hurting

Noticing that...   ~ I seemed to have gotten sidetracked on my cleaning….again.

Pondering these words…

“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”  I love this scripture.  It’s Zephaniah 3:17
Isn’t it beautiful?!

From the kitchen...  ~ Tuesday evening:  meatloaf, fresh baked bread

Around the house...  ~ I need to de-clutter, simplify

One of my favorite things… ~ the smell of fresh baked bread

A picture to share… ~

Quote of the Week… ~
 “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”  Laurie
(This is from last week, but it really fits my mood this evening.)

May your spring be filled with the gift of new life, sweet smells and sunny days.

 May God be gracious to you and bless you; may He make His countenance shine upon you forever; that Your way be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.
