A Simple Woman's Daybook May 2013

Outside my window...Today is just a GORGEOUS day. We had amazing spring weather this week!!

I am thinking...that I will spend some time tonight watching a seminar on parenting children from hard places.

I am thankful...for my family, for the weather, for my friends, for my church, for God's provision day by day, for campfires and pansies and that the kids have gotten to fish a lot already and for our community pool.

In the kitchen...I am running the water in the sink to try to turn my water from brown to clear again...ewwww...there must have been a water main break!

I am only 6 p.m I am in my jammies...don't you judge! ;)

I am reading..."A Mission Minded Family", by Ann Dunagan

I am looking forward to...a friend's visit tomorrow. 

I am learning...perseverance, patience, "love despite". 

Around the house...there's been lots of raking and lots of laundry!

A favorite quote for today..."
We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead." 2 Corinthians 1:8-9 

One of my favorite things...Cute kids. :) Funny thing is, they're pretty much ALL cute! Oh and puppies...

A few plans for the rest of the week...My little girls are going to their first "girlfriend birthday party" on Saturday!!

A picture I'd like to share:


  1. Hello from DownUnder in Australia Karen,
    I'm fascinated reading how other woman around the globe spend their day.
    I can't imagine home schooling one child never mind 7!!! ;D
    I love your photo...a title of 'great expectations' comes to mind :D
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Fascinating - so glad I found your blog. Down in South Africa, we are enjoying autumn. Still nice and warm, though. Fabulous photo.
