The Simple Woman's Daybook

I have seen this on several blogs and enjoyed reading the entries so much I thought I would give it a try.

Outside my window... it is another hot, sunny day. The birds are making regular visits to the bird bath for drinks and leisurely baths. Our neighbor's horses are quietly grazing behind the white fence.

I am thinking...about what it really means to live a life of total surrender and trust.

I am thankful for... a little bit of time today to do whatever my heart desires - a precious gift indeed.

From the kitchen... muffins to share at our new Life Group at church

I am creating... a sampler quilt for my husband

I am going...to the Livingproof Life Event at the Alamodome in San Antonio next month!

I am wearing...tan shorts (only around the house!) and a white tank top with a pretty little pink rose pattern.

I am reading..."Just Beyond the Clouds" by Karen Kingsbury and "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" by Joanna Weaver.

I am hoping...for good reports when both my Dad and my husband go for tests this week.

I am hearing... the hum of the clothes dryer and talk radio

Around the house...lots of packed cardboard boxes from the move that still hasn't happened (sigh)

One of my favorite things...my beautiful piano

A few plans for the rest of the week....the housework I very lazily put off last week, some ironing, piano lessons, a visit to my aging parents and a doctor appointment for my husband.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...my sweet little granddaughter

I hear 'ya about the total surrender and trust. The older I get the more I realize how little I trust God to actually care for me. It's rather a selfish thought though. I can say God loves the world and sent his Son... but when it comes to his care and provision for me, personally, well, my trust level is low. It's something I've come to grips with this past year. Thankfully He is taking me (us!) through this journey and I DO have faith there is light (in other words my trust will grow) at the end of this tunnel. Does that seem contradictory? I have the faith that I will have the trust? Hmm...thanks for letting me ramble.

Hi Linda,
I've seen this Daybook posted on so many of the blogs I read. It really does offer a nice little glimpse into one's life.
I can only imagine that those packing boxes are a reminder to your house not selling. Perhaps if they were out of direct sight you'd have a more serene setting until the housing market changes?
Just a thought!!

I haven't run across this one before - very nice!

I have been wondering about the packed boxes situation. I feel for you!

Glad you joined in, it is a nice start to the week isn't it. :)

I will continue to pray for the sale.

Hoping for good results right along with you! I put off cleaning things to and now I'm regretting it. The dust is calling my name. :v)

What a fun list to read. I have read "Having a Mary Heart" a few times. Good stuff!!

Trusting God's hands to be all over the appointments scheduled this week!!

What a beautiful granddaughter! and a great post. I love my time when I don't have an agenda. This slower pace of retirement is a blessing indeed!

I have seen this around too and I love it. I am doing a version in my journal, adn it is a great snapshot of life.
Praying about the move, Linda. And the test results.

I love the simple woman's daybook, it really feels like a nice way of getting to know people.
"Having a Mary heart in a Martha world" sounds really interesting I might go and check that one out !

Thankyou so much for stopping by my place and leaving such a lovely comment.
Many Blessings
