For Today, January 17, 2011

Outside my window... a dark, dark night

I am I have so much to learn on this parenting journey.

I am thankful for... God's quick answer to my call for help today.

I am wearing... my soft pink long sleeved t with my coral hoodie, comfy jeans & sneakers

I am hearing... the water pick as my girls take turns cleaning the orthodonic appliances

I am remembering... several birthdays in this last half of the month

I am creating... lists!  That's as creative as I am right now.  But Saturday we will be making Valentine's Day cards.  Wanna exchange Valentines with some sweet girls?

I am currently reading... The Age of Opportunity by Paul David Tripp, the book of JOB

From the learning rooms... Today was a good first real day back after our very long break.

I am hoping...that my girls with flipfloppy tummies are not coming down sick!

On my mind... how to get all the pieces running smoothly for each of the girls as we implement a couple of new resources for school.

Noticing that... the daily quiet time sure helps my endurance in the evening.

Pondering these words...If I ...try…people might not.... Yet, I’m really beginning to see that I am unsatisfied and anxious, and I might even become resentful, if I don’t step out and be me. Living a life of “constant self editing” is totally what I tend to do and totally what I am being called to stop doing.

And the verses I want to memorize...I am working on the book of Colossians for 2011 AND Genesis 1 by summer break...two big chunks, but I believe in the power of HIS Word.  And I want my girls to see THAT!

From the kitchen... Banana Bread Oatmeal & Homemade PoptartsIMG_0006

Around the house... order is taking over, but there are still a few stacks and a box or two

One of my favorite things... the love between my 3 youngest daughters, how they each say their sisters are among their very best friends!

A picture to share...
