Daybook Entry

For Today, February 2nd 2009

Outside my window... nice warm Florida winter and bright sunshine

I am thinking... that life is still a little too busy for me to properly train up my children

From the learning rooms... math only so far today, the babies were screaming way to much and I am seeking advice in this area from some been there, done that mom's. We may do some reading later today and the girls will make the salad for dinner tonight.

I am thankful for... my friends that prayerfully support me and for our homeschool co-op

From the kitchen... lasagna for dinner, that my mom made for us. We will be making homemade bread to go with it. I am still in prayer over this area in our life. It is so easy to overspend and over indulge because we can easily excuse our calling in this area to be good stewards by thinking it's okay since we need to feed our family. I am learning to really pray about this area and be a good steward without compromise.

I am wearing... yoga pants, burnt orange, long sleeve cotton tee and cozy socks

I am reading... A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 by Phillip W. Keller, given to me by a friend a few years ago.

I am hoping... that my husband finds work this week and that we continue to grow in the Lord through this time of refinement.

I am creating... still working on schedules from last week, finding the right rythem for our family

I am hearing... my girls are actually arguing in the kitchen about how to properly sweep up the coffee grounds that spilled out when they toppled the trash can

Around the house... just as every afternoon, we have lots of toys out for the babies, the girls have artwork set up in the kitchen and I have clean linens sitting on my bed, waiting for it to be made up.

One of my favorite things... reading a good book and having a hot cup of coffee

A few plans for the rest of the week... a new schedule of therapy three times this week for Autumn.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
