FOR TODAY December 28, 2009
Outside my window... cold, frosty, sunny and bright.
I am thinking... there are far too many Christmas cookies left in this house.
I am thankful for... my family.
I am praying for... Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I am creating... a clean, bright, clutter-free house.
I am going... to stay home :0)
I am reading... Training Hearts, Teaching Minds by Starr Meade... possibly next year's family devotions?
I am hoping... to get our annual
I am hearing... quietness. The boys spent the night at Aunty Tami's :0)
I am remembering... childhood Christmases.
From the learning rooms... I'm not yet thinking about "organized" schooling, as we're taking another week off.
From the kitchen... deep cleaning happening, way into the cupboards and everything.
Around the house... I love Christmas. I love the anticipation, the celebration, everything. But when it's done, I like to move on. I have a lot of blue/silver/white winter things out now.
On my mind... Wyatt, who is 13, still has four of his baby teeth, but Tate, who is 11, does not. Go figure.
Noticing that... Gunnar is becoming a voracious reader!
Pondering these words... Flame is clearer seen if its container does not compete. Luci Shaw
One of my favorite things... moving furniture. Making things look fresh.
A few plans for the rest of the week... assembling Lego kits, reading new books, visiting with friends.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
My cousin's daughter.
All she wants for Christmas is her four front teeth...
