For Today . . . May 10, 2010
Outside my window . . . bright sunshine greeted me this morning and it's been a lovely spring day today. +13 degrees C and everything is turning a lovely green color.
I am thankful . . . for my Mom and the memories of her childhood she shared with us yesterday. I heard some new stories!
And I also am thankful . . . for the Mom that raised her son to be a man of integrity and faith - and then shared him with me!
I am praying . . . for women everywhere as they fulfill the roles God has created them for and as they encourage, support, care for and love others.
I am thinking . . . about community members that can serve in a consultation process.
I am creating . . . a title and journaling for one of the scrapbook pages I created last weekend.
I am celebrating . . . Samuel's birthday this week! We are saving the birthday cake until he's here - soon!
From the kitchen . . . Root Beer floats this afternoon and leftovers as I was at school today. Supper is Chicken Veggie Stir-fry on Basmati Rice with Orange-Almond Salad and yummy Peanut Butter Chocolate Layer Cake for dessert (leftover from my sister ).
I am wearing . . . brown dress pants, brown tshirt, green sweater, and a green-orange-tan striped scarf.
I am reading . . . Luke 11 - Jesus Teaching on Prayer - "So I say to you, Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." This is one of my favourite passages.
The Centurion's Wife by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke - set in A.D. 33, the fictional story of Leah, a niece of Pontius Pilate, who is betrothed to Alban, the head of a garrison near Galiee and their discoveries after the death of Jesus.
I am hoping . . . to finish cleaning out the raspberries and do some garden planting this week.
I am hearing . . . the hymn "When Peace Like a River" that we sang at church yesterday.
I am going . . . to
Around the house and yard . . . the grass is looking kind of unkempt so I think it's time to mow the lawn and maybe I'll even plant some flowers in the patio pots too.
One of my favourite things . . . hearing my Mom share stories of her past.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . another day and half of subbing, a housewarming BBQ at our niece's, a visit to Naomi's, browsing at some greenhouses, a day with my mom, Bible study, and garden work.
A quote for today . . .
|“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.”|
—The 14th Dalai Lama
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . flying so high in the big blue sky!
