The Simple Woman Day Book

For Today~ August 15, 2016

Looking out my window... 
My garden is a tangle... it needs  weeding so badly  but  it is  too  hot...
It is  hopefully, the last sizzling day  we will experience in over a week... tomorrow the temps  start a gradual decline and I will be so  blessed  by cooler  air and  less humidity!

I am thinking...
how I am counting the days till we get to see
our kiddos...  I miss them terribly..

I mean who  wouldn't miss those sweet faces!!!  So huggable!!!!

I am thankful..
 for so many blessings of life... my family.. our home... our  livelihood  that the Lord provided us... our  general health...  all the provision God makes for us every day...  all the new tender mercies of each day!

I am wearing...
my tan gingham seersucker capris and  white peasant shirt...  cool  clothes for a  hot sticky day!

I am watching.....
I enjoyed the 1984  oldies  but goodie... film. Falling in Love with Meryl Streep and  Robert DeNiro yesterday.. actually watched it  1 and a half times as I missed the first half and it placed twice on 

Movie Plex.. comes on again this Friday night at 9:45..  very  sweet  chick flick!!!!
I am  reading...
and still enjoying my  Journalling Bible..I am doing Beth Moore's latest study
Entrusted Bible Study Book: A Study of 2 Timothy   -     By: Beth Moore
 starting soon.. so I am studying 2Timothy is preparation!
 Beth is urging us to memorize the book of 2 Timothy...  and I can see why..   there are great truths  there    to  calm our spirit in times of trouble!


I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.


So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. 9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,


That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame,because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.

I am listening to...
my Celtic Station on Pandora...
 love, love, love it!!!

I am hoping... 
it is always the same....  to get to face time with my dears  this afternoon.... it is my weekly 'fix'!

I am learning...
how important it is when at 3am I am gently aroused , in stead of focusing on hubs snores.. to give my mind to God.. for it He who is seeking my  attention, thanksgiving, and praise... I  become enveloped in His peace and  love...  this morning I sang  You are my Hiding Place back to him. and fell asleep in  His arms..

I slept the  sweetest sleep  and  when I awakened I felt the presence of angels in the room!

In the kitchen...
Our neighbor left on vacation and  before he left he brought us a bag   gorgeous tomatoes...
  and I have this  in the oven..

BLT Time!!!

Hurray.. it's lunch time!!!
In my garden~
as I said before  my garden is over run with  weeds and   vines...   but  with the cooling days this week I am hopeful to get it  cleared off soon...
my goal..

A moment from my day...
last week I got to peruse my favorite consignment shop...

So much to see.. so little time... 
 I was determined to spend less...  I mean I really  wasnt needing anything...

But I did find some treasures.  I found 2 salad plates in blue trasnsferware...
 Old Britain Castles  by  Johnson Brothers...
 and  A Royal Wessex which is  almost a perfect match to my Wedegwood Countryside dinner  plates.

And I found  the  darling vase I'm using in the sunroom with my apple theme..
I also found a gorgeous handmade  tapestry table runner  that I am using in the Master....  I'll share it in the next post!
And all of this came in under 20  bucks.. not bad...!!

Closing Notes
Thanks be to God...Amen!

  1. Your journaling Bible is very neat and the new Beth Moore study looks good. I purchased the Sermon on the Mount study by Jen Wilkin to do but have done a few Beth Moore studies in the past and enjoyed them. I'll have to look into this one. Have a lovely week.


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
