A Simple Woman's Day Book

Outside my window... It's pretty windy and rainy out! We have been under tornado warnings all night!
I am thinking...about Christmas and Advent. It is my first year for Advent or the Jesse Tree. We are enjoying them both! I love this time of the year! 
I am thankful for...my home. So many without a home,warm bed,and a hot bath. I am grateful for my humble home.
From the kitchen... I have not been up to cooking much,blah! The site or smell of food makes me gag! So it's been take out or fast food. I know sad!
I am wearing...some pj pants and a tank top.
I am creating... a Jesse Tree with Daniel.
I am going... to decorate the house some more later this week!
I am reading...the Voice of the Martyr's magazine
I am hoping...today is relaxing and involves no sickness
I am hearing...Daniel talking to Aaron; the wind and the rain making a ruckus outside!
Around the house...the table needs to be cleared off,the floor needs vacuuming,and clothes need to be washed.
One of my favorite things...Christmas. I was pondering whether or not to celebrate it since it's not on the original birthday of Jesus,but it is the day we celebrate with family,friends,and the body of Christ. 
A few plans for the rest of the week: get groceries,finish some shopping for family,and visit with my sister and her kids.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

It's a picture of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Beauvior. While I sit in my comfy home,there are soldiers dying everyday and they may never get a proper burial. 


  1. Great post, Heather. We are doing the Advent candles for the first time at church this year. It really does seem to add meaning to the season.

    Thanks for reminding us of the sacrifice soldiers have made for us. Although this is a happy time of year for most of us, there are those that have made the ultimate sacrifice and their families are hurting. May God grant them special blessings ...

  2. I hope the nausea is getting better! I remember those days so well! (and not fondly!) Just keep doing the next thing - that little one will be so worth it!


I'm so glad you stopped by! I love hearing from those who read my blog,so share your thoughts with me.
