My Daybook

Outside my window... it's sunny/cloudy and warm for January, more so than I like.

I am thinking... about my oldest son and my husband. They went on a ministry kayak/camping trip with some other men.

I am thankful... for healthy children! Two of them were sick last week and it was rough. So thankful they are healed!

In the kitchen... the dishes are washed up, the floor is swept, and the counters are wiped down.

I am wearing... lounge clothes- pj. pants and a t-shirt.

I am creating... ideas for Valentine's Day. Our theme will be God's love for us. We haven't ever did anything for this day. I wanted to do some crafts centered around showing God's love. 

I am going... to help with ideas at church this week for a couple's banquet we are having. 

I am wondering... how my big boy will do tonight camping out. I admit I am a little nervous.

I am reading... my emails as soon as I finish this post.

I am hoping... to make some oatmeal muffins this evening.

I am looking forward to... this weekend. We will have my oldest son a birthday cake (his birthday was last Saturday) and give him his gifts. He is excited and so are we! I love celebrating birthdays!

I am learning... to relax during the day. I have implemented a quiet time and love it!

Around the house... Aaron is playing in his room and Johnathan is watching The Black Stallion. We're missing Daddy and Daniel.

I am pondering... the depth of God's love. It's an amazing thing.

A favorite quote for today... 
Expect God to come, but do not expect Him only in a certain way. Always be in a state of expectancy,and see that you leave room for God to come in as He likes. - Oswald Chambers.

One of my favorite things... is gathering with our church family on Sunday's. We had lunch after service yesterday and it was nice to chat while the kids played.

A few plans for the rest of the week: planning for the couple's banquet, menu planning, grocery shopping, and celebrating Daniel's birthday.

A peek into my day...

Editing some pictures later tonight when the kids go to bed. This is a bracelet I made and love it. I have a jewelry page on Facebook, From the Heart Jewelry by Heather. 

You can do a day book too at A Simple Woman's Daybook created by Peggy Hostetler. 


  1. Having healthy little ones is something to be so thankful for. It is amazing just how much God loves us. Very hard to wrap my wee little human mind around. Thank you for sharing your SWD! Simply God's Girl &

  2. Hi Heather! I look forward to reading about what you all do with Valentine's Day. I am excited for it. Last year we made little mailboxes (Caleb thought it was silly at first!) and we put little things in it for each other and raise the flag to show we have countdown to Valentine's Day. I found ideas on pinterest to use with candy or coupons for them. He is excited about it this year!


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