Simple Woman's Daybook - February 15, 2016

Each week I link-up with Peggy and others for a prompted post.

Glimpse into the lives of those who follow Peggy here.

For Today
February 15, 2016

Outside My Window:  A little over-cast; cool and chance of rain sometime...I think the temp is low 50's.  I plan to stay home today and get some "chores" done - so I can "play" later in the week!

I Am Thinking:  About the awesome meeting of our Disciples' Women's cabinet this past weekend.  What a wonderful group of women to work beside in ministry!

I Am Praising God for:  The women I work with on our cabinet - as noted above.  Together we share so much talent, inspiration, love for God, and our beautiful Retreat Center, planning for events we will be sharing with many other women.

I Am Wearing:  A pair of black stretch pants - quite worn and "stretched out"; a pink night shirt with white dogs all over; and, of course, my crocs!

I Am Creating:  I have 30 cards for a swap that need to be completed; a "doll" tag to finish; and the puzzle project for my friend.  All of these projects should be completed this week; and I'll move onto another project...unknown at this time.

A Few Things for the Week:

It's payday week for us; so we will be shopping on Tuesday morning or afternoon.  I will be meeting a friend at noon to pick up a 4-drawer cube-unit I'm buying from her.

Either Wednesday or Friday I will be scrapbooking with my friends, as well as a special "Love" event on Saturday.

One evening I plan to meet my friend for our "Christmas Dinner"; and the puzzle project above-mentioned will need to be completed by that day!!

Meetings at church on Tuesday evening and Thursday morning...

And I just thought this was going to be a "slow" week!

I Am Wondering:  What the next step will be?  For what, you may wonder...so am I!

I Am Reading:  "Fat Tuesday" by Sandra Brown...it's a good book that I am already halfway through reading!

I Am Hoping:  To complete an "assignment" soon...as chair of the Nominating Committee for our Disciples' Women, I am seeking "volunteers" to serve on our cabinet.  It is interesting speaking with the different women from throughout Florida.

I Am Looking Forward to:  Doing some fund-raising for the April 1st - 4th Patriot Service Dogs' craft weekend.  Hitting the streets soon to ask for donations of items for our raffles.  It will be a FUN weekend, as always!

I Am Learning:  Still learning to accept the generous gifts of others.

I Am Hearing:  Food Network; my husband really doesn't like watching "cooking shows and painting and houses".  But, when he gets ready to walk or do something else, he always turns it to a "cook show" for me - I am usually on the computer!

In My Kitchen:  Clothes in the washer and dryer; dishes in the diswasher; floor needs attention...and soup for dinner!

I Am Pondering:  The "celebrative" feel of the following scripture we found during our planning meeting this past weekend.  Everything all came together with our brainstorming and sharing ideas and, of course, using the computer to look up scriptures and ideas we could use.

A Fave Scripture Thought:  Our Spring Enrichment Conference for the Disciples' Women will meet in April using the scripture, Acts 2:42 - 47.  We will base the theme, "Embracing Sisterhood - Celebration", on that scripture; and conclude the over-all theme at our fall retreat with "Purpose":

Acts 2: 42 - 47 (New Living Translation) - 

"All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord's Supper), and to prayer.  A deep sense of awe came over them all ... and all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had ...They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity - all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people."  

A Fave Quote:  

From enthusiasticallydawn in the introduction to her new series, "Journaling as a Lifestyle", she writes:

"...I will write.

Not because I have something to say that hasn't perhaps been said before.

Not because everyone wants to read my writing.

I will write because when I write I feel the wind beneath my wings, satisfaction in my soul, and a joy that is UN-containable."

Be sure to follow Dawn's series; and share why you write!

    1. Thank you, Jodi! Just when I think I'll have an "easy" week, especially after two weekends away from home...well, as you can see, it gets busy very quickly! But, I would not have it any other way!!!
