A Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... Monday, November 30, 2015

Outside my window... 61 degrees and light rain, getting kind of dark as it is 4:30 on a cloudy day...

A Bible verse I'm sharing... "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath ade us and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with Thanksgiving and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him and bless his name. For the Lord he is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." Psalm 100
I memorized this in elementary school and it comes to mind at Thanksgiving.

I am thinking... that it has been a while since I posted.

I am thankful... that I am well, that I have my Christmas gifts purchased, packages mailed and some of the gifts wrapped.

I am wearing... A cranberry sweatshirt with a snowman on front, navy knit pants, blue stripped socks, two afghans and a cat.

I am creating... I am cutting pieces out for a new quilt....the Nature's Journey is ready to layer for quilting.....and I made valances for my Daughter for her Birthday on Thursday.

I am start some soup for Honey Bear's dinner soon...

I am wondering... What has kept me away from the is always something..

I am reading...The American Lady by Petra Durst-Benning

A favorite quote for today...Let us be then be up and doing. With a heart for any faith. Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait. Longfellow

From my photo album...

One of my favorite things...
 Bird watching...

  1. Nice to see a post from you.

    Making a joyful noise to the Lord is one of the things I love best about Mass. I can sing to my hearts content and no one cares about how well or badly I sound.

    God bless.

  2. Your blog design is so pretty and cheerful! Thank you for sharing some of God's Word with us. It is very appropriate for this season of Thanksgiving -- and all other times of the year as well!!

  3. Mmmm soup! Love all your photos! Have a great week!

  4. It's a good time of year for soup. You're doing well on your Christmas tasks!

  5. I haven't done one of these in ages . . . I miss that! Your Rose-breasted Grosbeak is beautiful. I love bird-watching, too! :)

  6. Beautiful Grosbeak photo!! They are so stunning! We have one at our feeder only a couple of times a year, but at least we get to see them. Man, I can't believe you were done with gifts LAST month already! I always say I'm going to be finished by the end of November, but it never happens until just before Christmas!!
