The Simple Woman always inspires!

for today...


Outside My Window... a weeping willow is gently swaying in the morning breeze, my day lilies are blooming and the blackberries are beginning to ripen

I am thinking... about who God has made me to be and if I know that person

I am thankful for... the together time that we will have this week and the coming weeks as our family is being taken in new and exciting directions

From the kitchen... I will concoct something yummy (hopefully!) to take to my neighbors who just had a precious babe

I am wearing... my fuzzy blue robe, gift from my lover

I am creating... plans for this homeschooling year

I am going... to really and truly love my daughters while there is still today

I am reading... "God Meant it for Good" and 3 other tomes that I need to finish

I am hoping... to wake earlier and pray for wisdom and to maybe find a better hair color ;-D

I am hearing... the gentle hum of the computer, quiet in the sleepy heads room

Around the house... I will tackle the campfire smelly laundry today, may even hang it out in the sun to dry, now that's a homey thought!

One of my favorite things... is that my husband is a man who seeks the Lord's heart, he is full of wise counsel and graciousness. And he makes me smile continuously.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: a day trip to my favorite beach, homey projects, library, and laughter together

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Homeschooling at it's finest!

Grace: "Joy, say 'fish'"

Joy: "Shish!"

Thanks to ~ The Simple Woman ~ who always makes me want to simplify more.

I pray simplicity and love for your day today!

Finding the woman God made us to be is a beautiful journey, isn't it?
