FOR TODAY

Outside my window…the sun is shining and the sky is blue. Looks warmer than it truly is according to the weather.com service. Next week will offer a real taste of Spring.

I am thinking…about a blog make-over. Maybe a bit more “themed” by day. I am discovering that I am so diverse and blogging gives an opportunity to develop my creativity or maybe better said, share my creative side.

I am thankful…I got to spend time with my beautiful daughter Jessica last night. We get to share so little time one on one. The conversation and meal we shared was delightful.

jessica!

In the kitchen…I don’t suspect much activity to occur this week as my husband is away.

I am wearing…more comfy robe and PJ’s and may just stay in them all day long! After all I am alone and how often does this happen?!

I am creating…the life I desire.

I am going…to have lunch and shop with my mom tomorrow. We haven’t spent time together in a few months so I am really looking forward to this outing.

I am wondering…what God has planned for my husband this week. He is off on an adventure as a short term missionary in Guatemala. The team has 3 focuses; medical, street evangelism and construction. Steven felt led by God to pursue the translation of a few easy worship songs to be shared. The initial thought was there would be opportunity to share during morning devotion time with the team. However he got a call a day prior to leaving from the FT missionary saying “I have led eleven trips now and have never had one come together like this. Plan to make as many copies of the music as you can bring, there will be 2 opportunities for worship with the villages. Oh I just know that God is up to something! I am so excited just writing this. Please pray for him and the team and the beautiful people of Guatemala. Below is the team that went last year. I am wearing the red shirt second from the left . Please also take a few minutes to explore the web page GO Ministries.

I am reading…a couple of books. Check my reviews on Goodreads.

Costly Grace                            The Immortal Life of Henriatta Lacks

I am hoping…to develop a faithful exercise regimen for myself this month. There I said it…that might help me make the commitment.

I am looking forward to…Spring! and the flowers that come with it.

I am learning…to make a plan and see it through to the end. I am pleased about this because earlier this year I realized I was not reaching my full potential by lack of follow through. In my post Destination I describe my ah-ha moment

Around the house…things are quiet. Only me and the pets here and they are both asleep. What a life!

I am pondering…what a blog make-over would look like.

A favorite quote for today…from this morning’s devotional reading…”Changing your luck means consciously ridding yourself of the obstacles you place in your own path- luck busters and luck blockers-such as your own thinking, which is the foundation for your belief system.” Taken from Romancing the Ordinary but originally sourced from Create Your Own Luck: 8 Principles of Attracting Good Fortune in Life, Love and work.

One of my favorite things…finding surprises along the way.

A few plans for the rest of the week: lunch and shopping tomorrow after Worship, another Tiara Tuesday event on March 13th, probably pretty quiet otherwise.

A peek into my day..if it is warm enough I think I may venture out with my new camera to explore for my next photo assignment.

Well it is almost noon. I better move along. Thanks for reading. Enjoy your day!
