He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

This Simple Woman’s Daybook

For Today... I’m thankful to be at home with my kids. Homeschool is a blessing and I love it! We learn so much together!

Outside my window...There is sunshine! Yeah! It’s been several days in a row of rain. We’re loving the beautiful sunshine. Thank you, Lord.

I am thinking... How am I gonna get it all done today? So many things I need to do and so many things I want to do.

I am thankful for....God’s presence in my life. His gentle correction and the Holy Spirit’s illumination of my sin. Without that, I wouldn’t know how rotten and filthy I really am. We are all as filthy rags! So true, and I’m thankful the Lord will show me my filth when I ask, so that I can work to clean it up.

From the learning rooms...Hannah has both online classes today. Where in the World? Geography class. They will be talking about landforms. We had to send in a picture of a landform near where we live. Her Literature class is reading Johnny Appleseed. She’s excited about that. We are making a Jesus Window Poster in Bible. Hannah has her spelling pre-test today on Lesson 3.

We are studying air in science. Studying Jamestown, Captain John Smith and Pocahontas in History, along with reading a book about Squanto. She’s making geometric shapes in art and studying vocabulary in Spanish. She’s working on review in math—more than and less than.

From the kitchenMy kitchen is finally clean. Last night’s dishes were all on the counters, table and sink—ugh! And the dishwasher needed emptying—my most dreaded chore. I planned to do it after church last night, but I came home with a lovely migraine after our trip to Wal-Mart. So, it was waiting for me when I got up this morning :0). But, it’s done and will stay that way because……we will eat supper at Nanny Boo Boo and Poppie’s tonight! Yeah! We LOVE Thursday nights!

I am wearing...shorts and a t-shirt.

I am creating.... a knitted hat for David and it’s to the point I need to move the project from the circular needles to the double points and I’m a little afraid to do it. Don’t want to mess it up!!

I am going...to the bank today and nowhere else.

I am reading...Homeschool books and that is all except for my Bible.

I am praying…that David will get some work and that the tables and woodworking he is doing will be a profitable venture for him. He loves this kind of work! Also praying for a friend, Miranda and her daughter Shaylin who is in and out of the hospital since heart surgery in June. They need a special touch from the Lord, complete healing and strength to endure.

I am hearing...Hannah make her lunch and the birds chirping outside and the windchime, chiming.

Around the house... Dakota is working on his homework and he just finished vacuuming for me—Praise the Lord! David is in the shop making a table and some wooden snowmen. Hannah is doing schoolwork, online classes and making lunch. Caleb is all over the place making messes and tearing things up. Right now he’s banging on the metal trash can lid in the shop singing “Jesus is awesome!”

A few plans for the rest of the week... Tomorrow we have some friends coming over after homeschool. Bethany is my knitting teacher, so we will be knitting and getting to know each other better. Her kids Moshe and Gwynne are in classes with Hannah at our co-op. So, they’ll have fun playing outside together. Her younger two, Lucy and Zeke will have fun playing with Caleb.

A picture thought I am sharing with you…We took a hike on our property yesterday to the other side of our hill and beyond. We found the tree that is growing out of a huge rock. We took a pic of it for Hannah’s geography class for a landform.
