Reflections on the Day for 8 March 2009.
It’s been nearly summer outside… definitely spring like. We’ve got about 4 days of rain ahead of us, though. Yuck. We need the rain, but I am dreading the dog mess.
Plans for this week – Redeployment/Lenten Cleaning and school stuff (yeah, stuff!)
I am wearing – camel colored skirt, brown short-sleeved sweater, bare feet and legs shorts and a tank top!
I am feeling – toasty. with the weather starting to move in, it is getting a bit more humid than it has been. The wind has dwindled down to nothing, so I am feeling toasty! (update: turned the a/c on! It’s not even as hot as it was last week, but the humidity it killing me and the house is much hotter than it was all week.)
I am hearing – Birds singing, traffic and something on the television
I am thankful for – Jesus! And His Beautiful Mother! And also, painless feet.
I am wondering why – making a menu is such a chore! Ugh.
In prayer – Chief and all of our kids, all of my friends and family, and especially, my goddaughter B., who seems to be having some sort of spinal trouble or something! She’s “out of whack” and I’m praying for a miracle.
Honestly, they’re all fine. Nothing to report, really!
Kitchen – Still working on menus
In our my craft room: NOTHING. I’ve not even knitted for quite a while!
In our school: Starting a new week is always hopeful!
Lucky Room(s) of the week: Deep cleaning “schedule”:
Monday: Front Room (play room) and front hallway
Tuesday: Living Room
Thursday: Laundry Room and Craft Closet
Friday: Spare Room and LittleDood’s Room
Saturday: The rest of the bedrooms and upstairs hallway/linen closet
Sunday: no special task
Monday: Back Porch/Back Yard
Tuesday: Front Porch/Front Yard
Friday: NOTHING SCHEDULED! TODAY WE WELCOME CHIEF HOME!!! WHOOHOO!!!!
(of course, this assumes that sand storms don’t delay any of Chief’s flights…
UPDATE: Chief has missed his first scheduled flight out of Baghdad due to dust storms.
At this point, I hope he can still make it to Kuwait and out of country on time…
the longer he is delayed, the more likely his arrival home will be delayed.
Please pray. It’s time for him to come home!)
My iPod – Need to decide what’s next
My scripture meditation for the Day –
Letter to the Romans 8,31-34.
What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him? Who will bring a charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who acquits us. Who will condemn? It is Christ (Jesus) who died, rather, was raised, who also is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing:
