A Simple Womans Daybook-- Blessed Days

A Simple Woman's Daybook

Welcome to my Simple Woman's Daybook for this week: 25th may

Be sure to stop over at Peggy's and check out some other inspiring Daybook entries.

Outside My Window ...
It's raining it's pouring (well not pouring) we all are cheering. Hopefully we will get some good winter rains.
I am listening to...
Raindrops on the roof, silence in the house.

I am thinking and Praying about...
How blessed we are to have special God Parents for little Arwen and the big sacrifice they made as a family for Erin to come. I am very thankful for that.
How I wish we were all together again.
That we enjoy the time with the children's grandparents here and that they build special memories together.
Plans I am making for accountability and keeping my heart centered on home.

To Live the Liturgy...
Preparation for the special day for Pentecost.
To Breathe Deeply...
Hold onto the hope and faith that God is in control and all things that happen are for our good.
To be thankful for each moment and opportunity as it comes.
Towards rhythm and beauty ...
To implement plans Erin and I made about reading and science and other accountability things we talked about.
Tidy up the study as I have stuff every where after looking through books and other things together.

I am thankful for ...
A loving husband, loving children and a home to live in and people who really care for us.
That Arwen had her Baptism on Sunday and we had a lovely time after with both Father John and Father Felix coming back to our home to share in the 'party'.

From the kitchen ...
Burritos with lettuce, tomatoe, grated cheeese, sour cream and taco sauce.
Easy to prepare after taking Stephen to the airport late this afternoon.
I am wearing ...
I can't believe that I am in my PJ's again, with rose covered dressing gown, slippers and hair pulled back in a ponytail and days end makeup.
I haope this is not a recouring theme!

I am creating ...
Pentecost plans.
Pentecost crafts.
Plans for Myffwyn's birthday.
Hearts for Home Plans
Cross stitch for Arwen.

On my iPod...
General music in the kitchen as my days of time alone in my room a rare now I seem to be finished expressing.

Encouraging a servant attitude by all, including myself.
Soft, loving and patient voices and actions.
Bedtime routines with the young ones.

How blessed you are!!! I met your husband a few months ago at a Corboy birthday party. I sincerely hope you and your family will make it over here to Wang for the confirmations, two of my younger brothers are to be confirmed then. Love your blog and best of luck with selling the house!!!!


Gae said...

Thank you we are praying HARD for both the house selling and the confirmation. I am very forward in asking anyone who seems the slightest bit interested in praying for us too.
So ....Please pray we can come to the Confirmation and that we will have sold the house by then.
WE are SO looking forward to meeting all the 'Wang' people, we can hardly wait.
God Bless
