For Today... Monday, March 16 2009
Outside my window..Sunshine and blue skies- temps heading into the 60's today- that is a major heat wave for us!
I am thinking... how fast our daughter's senior year in high school is going--she's the youngest of six--how have these eighteen years gone by so quickly? Hug your babies ladies--it really is true that you turn around and they are grown.
I am thankful for...celebrating Amanda's eighteenth birthday this week! What a blessing she is to our family. Before she was born, the doctor warned us that she may not be healthy--but, praise God, she was fine!
I am also so thankful for the group of friends that Amanda has. Such great kids! They build each other up and encourage one another- allowing each to just be themselves and be real. Most of them also love the Lord- and that has made the difference.
Over 20 kids threw a surprise birthday party for Amanda Saturday night. She was delighted!:)
From the kitchen...tidying up needed since I was not feeling well most of the weekend.
I am wearing... pajamas- love my pj's in the morning:)
I am reading...starting a book titled "Pursuing Godliness"a study of I Timothy by Elizabeth George. I had forgotten that I had this book! Came across it Saturday when I was sorting. I bought it at a women's conference that Elizabeth spoke at several years ago.
I am hoping...that our family can get together soon. So many circumstances have kept us apart this winter- weather not being the least.
I am creating...hopefully some homemade cards this week.
I am hearing...a siren going down the highway. I always try to pray for whoever is having an emergency and needs that help right now.
Around the house... I have made some progress on sorting and purging. More needed...
I am also researching some new recipes.
One of my favorite things...when the grass starts greening up in the spring.
A few plans for the rest of the week...getting ready to celebrate Amanda's birthday.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
