My own version of the Simple Woman's Daybook for today…
Outside my window...lots of cumulus clouds floating by, gradually joining together to become some scattered thunderstorms later in the evening I imagine.
I am thinking…Laziness overtook me late in the day… should have gotten myself out of this chair and gone to camp meeting at our church’s campgrounds…it’s beginning tonight. (Different preachers for the next four nights, giving us their input on Matthew 25 and our ‘going’)
I am thankful for...having lunch at Red Robin’s with friends and CollegeGirl today, then spending the afternoon ‘talking’ about ‘stuff’ as she’s in between semesters…she’s working on a few ‘TV show’ and ‘film extra’ sets…some pretty good part-time work; and, she’s met a couple of ‘stars’. Or, I should say they’ve met ‘my star’…yea, that’s better!
From the kitchen...the hand-cranked ice cream bucket is waiting for its bath before going back to the basement…maybe I’ll keep it upstairs for a while and make another batch. The peach/vanilla was AWESOME!…and there are leftovers
I am reading...FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS (WWII Iwo Jima flag ‘raisers’)
I am creating...a crocheted baby outfit for a little girl that will be arriving in July.
Around the house...my guest room continues to call out to me to ‘empty me, please!’. It’s my ‘put it here in the interim room’ and the interim has run out, I believe.
On my MP3 player this week...talk radio…
One of my favorite things: finding a really good recipe that is easy to remember.
One of my least favorite things...watching the squirrels eat the bird food after the raccoon destroyed the ‘squirrel stopper’ bird feeder.
A Simple Grace Note: Our new pastor preached his first sermon today; it’s a bittersweet time (our last pastor was here 12 years). Will begin ‘praying our new pastor up as he and his wife transition.
My simple devotion: Freedom is ours in Christ…no need to hide ourselves behind a veil. Christ as our intercessor, sits next to His Father (physically) while showing His ‘whiter than snow’ face speaks loving Words to cover our ugliness…this IS grace.
2 Cor. 3:15-18 “Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers “Israel's” hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
