This week flew by pretty fast and here we are on the most promising day of the week, Friday evening! The WHOLE weekend ahead of us.
The Mr. and I went to Carraba's for dinner, again he had it all planned when I got home! We brought take-out Chinese home for daboyz. Won't lie to ya, there are lots of evenings when I think, "why are they here!?" But tonight I'm feeling mellow and just glad to have a family that is healthy and intact and laying around my family room.
I had a good day at work today and yesterday my co-workers had cake and snacks and bought me a beautiful necklace. I've set my mind on being more God-focused and made my first goal using my usual bed time reading to read the Bible. I've gotten through Joshua and half of Judges and as usual I'm asking myself why I don't just do this and why does it take such self discipline? I feel better in my mind the way my body feels better with diet and exercise. Better sleep, more peaceful. Just from that miraculous Word of God soaking in. Not even that there are some scriptures that have taught me some great lessons, it is just the very power of His Word entering into my mind that stills me. And I feel surrounded by a hedge of protection and hope. That evening when I predicted insomnia and panic attacks from caffeine? Nope, I read Joshua and slept soundly.
Tonight I'm loving the Autumn colors and cool weather. The Mr. has made me promise to keep the furnace at 68 or lower and I'm obeying. I am going to throw a load of laundry in and make a pot of tea (decaf!) and just sit here with the Mr., daboyz and Donny.
Not too exciting, but very very good.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
