Heavenly Sunlight

My Simple Woman's Daybook: November 8, 2010

Outside my window...it is sunny, and clear and cool. It is supposed to warm up nicely today - the makings of a perfect fall day.

I am thinking....how much I enjoy all the windows in this new house. Our previous house was an "inside unit" townhouse and although we never thought it seemed dark or lacking in sunlight - little did we know how glorious morning sunlight pouring in from all sides really was!! Just one more reason to LOVE the morning!

I am thankful for....the sweet friends I have made while blogging. I was so touched by sweet comments, and even email, from many friends last week when I was MIA:) and unable to find time to blog. Most of you I have never met in person, and probably never will..at least not this side of eternity:)....but you are friends, nonetheless - encouragers along the way!! I am blessed to have "met" all of you.

I am wearing...my snugging robe....it feels so good in the mornings (especially these cool ones)!

I am remembering....Thanksgivings from years past. So many great memories....both as a little girl and then the years when my own children were the little ones! How quickly time goes by. I pray that Erica is finding wonderful ways to begin traditions with Miss Riley.

I am going...to get my haircut tomorrow - and not a minute too soon! And hopefully Mr. Rascal will get one as well (just not at the same salon)!!

I am reading....Life:Beautiful magazine. I really do enjoy this magazine.

I am hoping....to create new traditions for the upcoming holidays. Not as easy as it seems it should be - any hints???

On my mind....several very serious, and rather urgent, prayer requests. My heart is so heavy - but I am remembering what a "big" God we serve.

From the kitchen....we have made banana bread and pumpkin spice cookies lately and will be making pumkin bread today. And I wonder what's up with my diet??

Around the house....dust. Again. And we are tackling the windows this week - let that sunshine really shine in!! And then I might break into song..."Heavenly Sunlight..Heavenly Sunlight. Flooding my soul with glory divine." (pretend I didn't just squeak out that high note there!)

Plans for the week....could it actually be a quiet week?? That would be nice:) Maybe - just maybe! - I can get some more of the cruise pictures posted!

One of my favorite things....phone calls with Jordan!

I LOVE the sun pouring in...or the sound of the rain this morning, haha...glad you are enjoying yours. Hope your week is good. I will write you an email later (get excited, haha) praying for your requests...HUGS to you my friend...

  7. Mmmm...homemade bread, spice cookies...sounds delicious, just like the nutmeg cake and grape-nut cookies on Saturday. :)

    One thing we do for the month of November is to write down on little paper pumpkins one thing we are thankful for. Then I post them somewhere in the house...this year it's in the stairwell going to the school room.

    Have a good day!
