Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today ~ October 6, 2009

Outside my window... it is rainy and cold.

I am thinking... that it is most certainly going to be a bad day, one of those that is beyond my control, and I need strength.

I am thankful ... that I have a supportive husband and a God who guides me and helps me.

I am wearing... my third outfit for the day already and it's only 7:45 a.m. I started out in workout clothes, but before I could get out the door I was met by a "scared" 4 year old so my workout got cancelled. I put my robe on, over my workout clothes and laid down with her. But then I was cold so I got up and put on my pj bottoms and laid back down. Now I am in a layered sweater and long sleeved top and jeans.

I am remembering... that I have complete control over how I respond to things today, and that it is not flesh and blood that I battle.

I am creating... the fall craft party "wish list" leaves and pumpkins today.

I am going... to be back in my pjs and on the couch by about 6:00 tonight.

I am reading... nothing.

I am hoping... that all of the bad of the day has happened by now (8 a.m.) and that nothing but good comes my way.

On my mind... my complete inability to be all things to all people.

From the learning rooms... I see improvements.

Pondering these words... "We can talk to the One who is able to calm our apprehensions and fears and give us courage to move ahead with a heart of confidence and assurance." ~ Luci Swindoll.

From the kitchen... I am taking ibuprofen.

Around the house... are finally some fall decorations.

One of my favorite things... is drinking coffee. Thank goodness for it today.

A few plans for the rest of the week... at this point, it's just to get through one day at a time. (So far this day has been horrible for me, and I just learned that our friends lost their baby.)

    I am having one of those days today, but I am trying to put it out of my mind. I need to focus on my son because today he leaves of a 3 day field trip that is close to 5 hours away :( He will have a great time though & it will be a wonderful learning experience for him. Please keep him in your prayers, that he stays safe & has a great time.
    Keep your chin up girl.
    Have a great day.
