For today...Monday, January 17, 2011
Outside my window...cold and 32°. We're supposed to get some rain, sleet, and snow today.
I am thinking...about having to postpone Katie's snow tubing trip again. She was supposed to go with her class last Tuesday, but we had to postpone it because of bad weather. This week's weather isn't cooperating either.
I am thankful...for my job. It helps support our family income and allows me to be with our daughter all day. :)
I am hearing...the washing machine. It's easy to take our appliances for granted, but how different our lives would be without them!
From the kitchen...baked ziti, asparagus, and garlic bread.
Around the house...I'm washing clothes and I need to wash some dishes. Is it just me, or does it seem that those two jobs never really have an end??
One of my favorite things...looking through old pictures, cards, and letters, and remembering good times. :)
On my mind...the phone call we received telling us that a dear family friend passed away yesterday morning. When I was a baby, he did my baby dedication. He also performed my wedding ceremony. He will be greatly missed. I hurt for his wife and children and grandchildren. It's sad to know we won't see him here anymore, but I'm happy to know he's in Heaven, and we'll get to see him again one day. This brings me to...
A Scripture thought...I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that Day, and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. -II Timothy 4:7-8
Can you tell I'm thinking a lot about Heaven today? :)
