Card Ministry and another Half Day at Work


The Simple Woman’s Daybook



FOR TODAY  October 8, 2010
Outside My Window...it is dark and cool. we had the most beautiful day with sun and warm weather.

I am thinking...what a busy weekend we have.
tonight I had Card Ministry.  We made 150 cards in 2 hours.  There were 9 ladies there.
Tomorrow I'm going to shop and stamp with Jane.
Tomorrow I'll take Sarah shopping for shoes and a vest.
Sunday is Bible Study in the morning, work for school, then service at night so I can take Sarah to her small group meeting.


I am thankful for...my somewhat speedy recovery from hip surgery.

From the kitchen...all is quiet as all are in bed.


I am wearing...my work clothes and tennis shoes.  It's a riot to see white tennis shoes.  They are the only shoes I can put on by myself.  I can't bend down yet to put shoes on so I have elastic laces and use a long handled shoe horn to put my shoes on.

I am creating...cards for the Arts and Crafts sale Nov. 5-6th at church.

I am going...shopping for craft stuff tomorrow!  I have a 50% off Martha Stewart item for Michaels.

I am reading...The Thorn by Lori Wick

I am hoping...I can easily fall asleep tonight and feel refreshed when I wake.

I am hearing...the ticking of the clock and the whirring of Tim's tanks downstairs.(they sit right below me.)
Around the house...all is quiet with the exception of snoring coming from a room.

One of my favorite things...is eating popcorn.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:Drop sarah off at a friend's house, shop at Michael's with my MS coupon, shop for shoes and a vest with Sarah, Bible study and service at church, catch up on school work I missed, read a little and get outside in the nice weather we're supposed to have.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...this was the view from my hospital room on the rehab side.  The courtyard was absolutely gorgeous!

Well, I continue to mull over what God's will is for me. I also am praying that He will not grow weary of me praying for Him to lead and I would follow.  I want to glorify God with what I say and do.  Yet, I know that I fail miserably.  I want what God wants.  I pray that I will be able to follow Him like the disciples when they were called.
  There is a woman named Stephanie who is in a coma right now at the Cleveland Clinc.  She had multiple seizures in one day, stopped breathing, had a heart attack and didn't have oxygen to her brain for a little while.  We're praying for her and her family.  The doctors had to put her into an induced coma to try to stop the seizures.  They aren't seeing what they want to see as far as brain activity.  They are not sure what the outcome will be.  This woman has a three year old and a one year old and a husband.  I keep praying for all of them.  I know this is something that God is handling, it's just so hard to hear about this situation where these young children may grow up without a mother.  they might not even remember her..............
I keep praying that God will work a miracle here.
Thanks for stopping by.
Blessings,
