Welcome to my weekly Sunday post, Daybook Online Journal. This is a post where I gather all the ordinary things that happen or are happening in my day to day. Things like what I’m reading or listening to…eating and cleaning and learning…These are the small moments that make up my blessed daily life; and I want to remember them. If you blog, please link up below with your Daybook Online Journal post. If you don’t have a blog, no worries, just leave your “post” in the comments. You can use my prompts or make up your own to include items important to you; mine change depending on season and circumstance.
Daybook Online Journal: After the Rain
Thanking God for…
::thoroughly scrubbing the house down on Friday
::green beginning to peek through the brown
::chickens wandering around all day long
::new baby calves
::a neighbor hands on teaching Luke about cattle
::the Guineas cackling
::a slow weekend
::all the ways Chris helps me to be a better person
I am praying for those who do the hard things that often go unseen. You know, the things that make your lip quiver, your stomach flip and the name of Jesus the only words you can muster. Or the hard things that are just assumed to be the normal parts of everyday life that aren’t noticed until they aren’t done. I admire the determination to do the hard things to get to the good. I am also praying for introverts. It’s hard to be one sometimes and even harder to be misunderstood.
I’m pondering 3 year olds and almost 17 year olds and everyone in between…late nights when teens come alive and early mornings when toddlers come alive…mom time with children and Jenny time with Chris…temper tantrums and silent treatments…Lent and Life…the difference between happiness and joy and the contentment in contradiction.
I have decided I’m not a “draw-er” and I am totally ok with that. As far as creative Bible journaling, I am a fan of hand lettering or using stamps and stickers. I’m also always a fan of just plain ‘ol writing for journaling.
Around the House…
Friday we had a major house clean–good stuff. Then Friday night we had a moment of little guy anger which resulted in a slammed door–a no-no–which knocked off some old window panes I have from my grandparents house sitting on the top of a book case. There was glass EVERYWHERE and the panes also broke a chair that was sitting beneath them. I’m on the look out for a new chair and my living room floor was spotless as of Friday night due to so much sweeping and re-sweeping.
In the Kitchen…
Oh gracious, could someone just please come plan, shop and cook for me for a while. The rut is deep and wide my friends. Except for! Leo wanted S’mores for his birthday cake…those don’t take place in the kitchen but still worthy of mentioning.
Our Domestic Church…
This Thursday is the Feast of St Joseph so we will do something special for Chris.
