Outside my window...
Beautiful Indian Summer.
I am thinking...
about something that another blogger wrote and I want to expand upon here. This blogger felt that she had a moment of clarity from the Holy Spirit and knew it was the Holy Spirit because it went "straight to her heart and made her weepy."
I think we have to be very careful about this particularly when we think the Holy Spirit is providing insight into plans for our families.
"The heart is deceitful above all things" (Jer17:9)
God loves life. God loves to bless with life and God is a generous God. Tread with extreme caution towards any "epiphany" that leads to a different conclusion.
I am thankful for...
that a dear friend of mine and her daughter were not injured in a severe car accident this weekend. God is good.
From the learning rooms...
Starting The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with Noah and Gabe this week. If I can say I have my two middle sons reading authors like C.S. Lewis, I will feel as if I quite accomplished something.
From the kitchen...
I remember as a little girl hearing my grandma say that one of the good things about dying was that you never had to plan any more menus. I thought that was horrible at the time - but I get where she was coming from now!!
I am wearing...
Black sweat pants, black vest and black stretch shirt.
I am creating...
a Halloween/All Saints Day Party for my kids for next week.
I am going...
to be at church a lot next week.
I am reading...
Dr. Susan Love's Menopause and Hormone Book: Making Informed Choices
An Excellent book so far!
I am hoping...
that Gabe's back stops hurting. He coughed so much last week that he pulled something in it.
I am hearing... Gabe talk about his aching back!
Around the house...
Decorating for halloween/All Saints Day. This year we are making invitations and having a party at our house!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
1. Walk or exercise tape every day.
2. Bible study with Gabe getting ready for confirmation.
3. Get math and reading done with everyone this week and get one library trip in.
4. Keep up with my typing - which might get easier if that client drops me! We'll see.
5. Have to do more legal work on my mom's estate - my new part time job... sigh.
