The Simple Woman's Daybook, for January 4, 2011

FOR TODAY, January 4, 2011

Outside my window...We have a typical cloudy January sky in Tennessee...boy does it look cold!

I am thinking...a million thoughts, all at once...so much to be thankful for, to look forward to, to learn!

I am thankful for...the tiny life God is knitting together inside me, and His mercy and forgiveness of my doubt.

From the learning rooms...I am learning more about this little gift...what they are "growing" this week, trying to learn more about just being as healthy as I can be for this little one.

From the kitchen...I had the last pancake from last week, reheated, and a banana so far...I'm sure there'll be something else soon!lol

I am wearing...my p.j.'s still...

I am creating...well, not alot on my own. But what GOD is creating...oh wow!!

I am going...to see a friend today, then go buy some chicken feed for my ONE hen...ugh. More about that later though.

I am reading...a couple different things on pregnancy. One is "What to Expect..." and a few little magazine sort of things from my sister and midwife.

I am hoping...that little one is growing the way they should be and that God will protect them until we can hold their precious little body in our arms.

I am hearing...the garbage truck. It's not as loud as it usually is, since we don't have a full garbage bin for them to empty.

Around the house...things are quiet, as they typically are this time of day.

One of my favorite things...right now is beef! I just can't seem to get enough of it lately, lol.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Finishing up a research paper, taking down the scant decorations I have up from Christmas, some cleaning.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...
A picture my husband took while we were on our anniversary trip to the Smokey Mountains.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Psalm 51:7


  1. Our family has prayed for you many times over this past year, and now we are privileged and excited to be praying for this little one growing inside you. We are now praying for his/her health and well being...both physically and spiritually. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Thank you so much, Natalie. I can't tell you how much I appreciate reading that :) God bless you and your precious family!!
