Daybook April 5th, 2014
Outside my window - The sun is desperately trying to shine, the clouds are hopefully moving out, the grass is finally starting to turn green, the trees have little buds on them and everyone is hurrying somewhere today.
What I am reading - I have several books on my iPhone by Beth Moore and for now I am reading "A Heart Like His" which is the story of David. So far, it has been very good. Also on my iPhone is the devotional for "Daily Streams in the Desert" and I can't tell you how many times that has spoken to me specifically on a given day.
What I am eating - unfortunately, everything in sight. And whoever the person was that invented the individual chocolate chip cookie needs to be hanged. :) Made my first one the other day and that is pretty much all I think about! My mantra is the less I have to cook, the better I am! :)
What I am learning - to be patient and understand that God works things out in HIS time and not mine. To NEVER forget that HIS mercy endures forever! That breaking my constant connection to technology and social media is NOT a bad thing. That some relationships are not good for me and it is ok with me and God that distance is there. That some relationships need to be more important and that takes work on my part. That gut wrenching pain deep in my heart and soul can be both good and bad for me. And, that God is more dear to me with each passing day.
In my house - things are the same. I love the paint colors in my living room and am pretty sure I will enjoy that room more when the carpet is replaced! I went bold in my bedroom with a dark blue and yellow. I am loving the colors but am just needing to get the rest done. There is nothing on my walls and no curtains at my window but I can't decide about those things either! :)
My work - hasn't changed but yet it has. Cryptic sounding huh? In my line of work though - cryptic is the key. :) I like my job and am thankful for it! I like having my own office - just don't care that I have two pictures of farm equipment hanging on my walls! :)
The family - love my kids, love my grandbabies more! How's that for honesty?? Addison is 4 and loving preschool! David is 18 months old and his favorite thing to say is "Whasat"? In other words, "what's that". It's hilarious! Estaley will be the big "1" in a little over a week. She has been walking everywhere for at least a month and brings sunshine everywhere she goes! Molly is almost 4 months old and cute as a button which is what her Papaw calls her! Oh and the parents of these blessed children are fine too! They would tell you they are just "chopped liver" since they had children. That's probably true! :)
In my church - our beloved Pastor Mowery and his lovely wife are retiring and David & Sarah Fry are taking their place. While my heart is sad for the Mowery's are special people, I am excited for the future as well. David and Sarah are awesome people and I know that God will continue to use them!
My favorite person - has always been and will always be my hubby. Life with him is better than I ever dreamed and I thank God every day for him and his Godly example to me and those around him. We have so much fun no matter what we are doing - unless I am asking him to move furniture around in my house! :)
