Morning Journal - Monday, November 7, 2011



By Rebecca, simply yours

~I Awoke...

...just before the alarm clock was scheduled to go off. Sweet dreams still wafted and lingered on my not-fully-awake mind just as dawn began to creep over the eastern horizon. It stretched it's long fingers toward our east bedroom window illuminating it with just the tiniest hint of morning glow. Yes, another day in which to serve Him had arrived!

~I Am Hearing...

...nothing but the whir of the osculating fan. It was so warm last night that we had to turn it on to just to circulate the air.

~I Am Praising The LORD For...

...His many blessings! At this time of the year we look for them more closely that at any other time of the year and, in looking, we find that they are more than we can count. God, and His infinite love for us, is exhibited everywhere and is in everything that we do or touch. We cannot praise Him or thank Him enough!

~Beautiful Things...

...brown, crunchy, fallen leaves, round, orange pumpkins, and squirrels playing and chasing one another up and down the tree outside our front door.

~I Am Thinking...

...about how blessed we truly are, and about how, half the time, we don't even realize it.

'Lord, please, help me to never take You, or the things You've give me, or the people that You have placed in my life, for granted. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.'

~My Plans For Today...

...take my dad to the doctor, go to the Amish store and Dollar General, straighten the house, plan this week's menus, and work on lesson plans.

~What's For Dinner...

...roasted vegetables with lentils, spinach salad, rustic oat and wheat bread

  1. Oh how true you are that we take so much for granted. So, so much.... Yet, He is faithful.

    I love the thought of going to an Amish store. Do you live close to one?

  2. Thanks for taking time to drop in and comment. I always enjoy our visits whether they take place on your side of the Atlantic or mine. :)

    Yes, a lot of Amish and Mennonite folks have settled in this area and I purchase most of my baking supplies and spices from them in bulk. One of my Amish friends had a store closer to us, but, sadly, she, just recently, had to close it, so now we have to go a little further away (about 30 miles or so as opposed to the 10 or so that it was before). Anyway, I said Amish this morning, but, in reality, where I went today was a Mennonite store. Either way, the bulk stores are one of my places to visit and buy from.

    Thanks, again, for stopping in! Have a blessed day!

    All My Love,
    ~Rebecca
