For Today: December 8, 2008
Outside my window...it's a cold, sunny morning.
I am thinking...how important it is to use a calendar for planning all of the upcoming Christmas events.
I am thankful for...the ministry of missions. Last night we finished up our annual Missions Conference at church and totaled our Faith Promise goal for 2009. In spite of financial changes people are experiencing due to the economy, our church increased the goal for next year. Praise the Lord!
From the kitchen...a cup of hot peach tea.
I am wearing...my jammys (it's cold and early!).
I am creating...a Christmas card list.
I am going...to help put up the Christmas decorations at the church building today.
I am reading...in my Bible: II Timothy; just for fun: a biography on Mrs. Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
I am hoping...the kids continue to stay healthy in the midst of the sickness that is going around.
I am hearing...good gospel music on our church's radio station.
Around the house...laundry; deep cleaning the living room; boxing up the children's outgrown clothes to give away.
One of my favorite things...socks on my feet to keep them warm.
A few plans for the rest of the week...shopping; piano lessons; a trip to the library; attend a Christmas banquet.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...Bookworm recently competed in the regional spelling bee and won! She advanced to the state bee finals and made it through eleven rounds. We are so proud of her!
