Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Here's My Day

This is what my day will be like today:

Weather - We have a wonderful, rainy day today. Yesterday too. After weeks of a drought I am rejoicing that God is watering my trees and grass and flowers. They have greened up overnight and you can almost see them smiling.

People - There's just my husband and I at home today. I love quiet days at home when it's just the two of us. No grandchildren. :( But I'm going to see other people as I run my errands.

Food - I'm going to put a roast in the crock pot this morning using a recipe I got from Janera at My Garden Hat. It calls for a roast, cream of mushroom soup, rotel tomatoes and a cup of dry pinto beans. Sounds interesting, doesn't it!

Clothes - hmmm, I'm still in my pajamas but since it's raining I think I'll wear slacks and a short sleeved shirt and tennis shoes today. I'll have to take some sandals with me when I run errands so I can change (see below).

Errands - Only a few, thank goodness! First I'm going to drop off a Beth Moore video for a new friend to borrow for her Bible study group tonight. Second, and my favorite, a pedicure. It's been too long and this is one luxury I hope I never have to give up. Third, I'll stop by the bank for myhusband. And last, the Christian Book Store to get a birthday card for my sweet 17 year old granddaughter. Her birthday was actually Saturday but I haven't gotten to see her yet so I'm safe.

Home again - I should have the whole afternoon to work on the Checkerboard and Rails quilt. I'm hoping to only have 2 or 3 more days work on this and I plan to take it to the quilter later this week. Yea!

Bible Study - I'm a little behind in my reading of Genesis with Prodigal Jon in 97 Seconds With God so I'll catch up with that.

Reading - before I go to bed tonight I'll read a little more of the third book in the Twilight series Eclipse.

Blogs - I have over a hundred on my Reader these days and that's way too many. At some point I'm going to have to take some off but I love them all and don't know how to decide which ones have to go. Any suggestions?

What are you doing today?

Sounds like a nice day. I am going to have to read the Twilight series.

As far as removing folks from your list, please leave me on - I have enjoyed checking in with you now and then and would miss you!

You have your day planned! Mine is partially planned. There are too many things to do today then hours to get them done. I need to stop and prioritize soon but the first thing I do on Mondays is study and prepare for my care center ministry through the week. After that I try to get some things done at home that have been waiting in line for awhile.

I'd love to have the recipe for the roast you mentioned. It sounds delicious.
