FOR TODAY (November 1, 2013)
Outside my window... it is rainy (68 degrees) and the leaves on all the big trees have finally changed, giving me the most glorious view. I can't stop staring at their beauty, even on this rainy today.
I am thinking...of possible solutions for a recent (somewhat surreal) problem/situation that has nearly knocked the wind out of my sails.
I am thankful...for my personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the reminder of His Promise.
In the kitchen...I just put a roast into the crockpot.
I am wearing...dark jeans, a casual free-flowing top, my leather and pearl bracelet (a gift from Charlie), my pearl ring(a gift from Darin he had made from a pearl he'd had since childhood), turquoise earrings (a gift from Michelle) and bare feet.
I am creating...a more artful life (or at least attempting).
I am going...to continue to take life one day at a time.
I am wondering...how life can somehow still manage to get all messy and twisted up, in spite of our very best attempt and intent.
I am reading...A Million Little Ways: Uncover The Art You Were Made To Live by Emily Freeman and What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.
I am hoping...for better days ahead.
I am looking forward to...the completion of our new master bathroom and finally soaking in that claw foot tub I've been dreaming of for a long forever.
I am learning...to play the piano.
Around the house...there are people in and out (working on the bathroom) and the dogs are barking (more than usual!).
I am pondering...some big changes.
A favorite quote for today..."You are a mess. You are and I am and everyone else is too. Some of us do a better job at hiding it than others, but it doesn't make it any less true...But you are designed to reflect the glory of God, and when you release the fullness of who you most deeply are, we will see God because we're finally seeing you...Being a mess doesn't disqualify you from having an influence. And it doesn't make you any less of a poem." ~Emily Freeman
One of my favorite things...(the only thing I've yet eaten today) a fun-size pack of M&M's heated just slightly in the microwave.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Pray...deeply breathe in, deeply breathe out...pray...deeply breathe in, deeply breathe out...pray...(repeat as needed)
A peek into my day...
