The Simple Woman's Daybook - April 13

For today...

Outside my window...this morning there was the most beautiful sunrise. Rondell and I come to work really early so we were able to see it on the way in. Lots of oranges, reds, pinks and purples. Stunning...God is amazing!

I am thinking...that I'm in a slump. I just haven't been myself when it comes to cute, thoughtful things. Like yesterday, I didn't even have the kids' gifts in an Easter basket. As a matter of fact, I didn't give Jamison her gifts until the end of the day and I have yet to give Caleb his. I know this is SO not the meaning of Easter but I still like to do fun things for my kiddies. I was the same around Valentine's Day where I didn't have little gifts or candies. I hope to get out of this slump soon!

I am thankful for...Christ, dying for you and me so that our slates could be wiped clean.

From the kitchen...The meals planned this week are conies, chicken enchiladas, and maybe homemade pizza.

I am wearing...Red and pink.

I am reading...Working my way through Numbers...Moses just gave Joshua some of his authority.

I am hoping...that my sister has a good time when she comes to visit this week. It's her Spring break and she decided that she wanted to come and stay with us. I may let Jamison miss a day of school in order to spend some extra time with her (shh...don't tell).

I am creating...little packages to send to my Pay it Forward friends!

Around the house...not much going on. I think we'll take in easy this week.

One of my favorite things...Rondell being off on a Sunday!

A few plans for the rest of the week...Relax and hang out with Toshianna. We'll probably go get ice cream at Graeter's one night. I'm also going to a BSF seminar on homiletics.

What about you?

Thanks for reminding me to be thankful for "Christ, dying for you and me so that our slates could be wiped clean."

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Don't worry about the "slump", Kelli! It doesn't have to be all cutesy all the time. :) I try to tell myself this quite often!! Our children just love that we spend time with them!

Have a great week!
