Outside my window…gray and cold.  We’re expecting some snow.   🙂

I am hearing…my son recite the Military Phonetic Alphabet.

I am thankful…because my husband gets today and tomorrow off! 

From the kitchen…beef stroganoff using venison. 

From the learning rooms…a modified day.  Speech writing, debate research, sewing, computer network attached storage installation for a home.  (That would be my husband’s arena.)

I am reading Scripture…to better understand baptism, specifically concerning infant baptism versus believer’s baptism or any baptism at all, i.e. the thief on the cross.

 I am hoping…to get the new study Bible I ordered in soon.  It has been over two weeks.  😦

Around the house…a family gathering in the living room;  breakfast being eaten in front of the fire, laptops humming, and plans being finalized for the day.

One of my favorite things…bubble baths on cold nights.

A few plans for the rest of the week…preliminary packing for a trip to Florida,  dermatologist appointment, basketball practice for kids, birthday present in the mail for my dad who is turning 77.

A powerful ProverbA wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.

A sweet picture thought to share…



How Great Thou Art
Stuart K. Hine

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.


And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on that Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.


When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration.
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”





A merry heart does good, like medicine…

~Proverbs 17:22~



This story made us all roar with laughter this morning!  Put your coffee down before reading it, though!

6a00e54f14494b8834010535dafe21970b-800wiStephanie, over at Keeper of the Home, has a wonderful blog for wives and mothers to visit.  Part of this blog includes a ‘carousel’.  ‘What’s a carousel, you ask?  Well, other bloggers get ‘onboard’ this carousel and share thoughts on a similar theme.  This one happens to be ‘Living Simply Saturdays’.  ‘Simple’ ideas to share about life, being a mom, etc.  My lovely sister-in-law, Judy, invited me to join so here are my Simple Saturday thoughts……

Saturdays in my home usually start off slowly and quietly.  My husband, John, and I enjoy taking a hot cup of coffee onto the front porch to spend time catching up while experiencing the beauty of the woods around us.  The children are allowed to wake up at their own pace and read or play until their tummies encourage them to wander downstairs.  Often they will grab a bowl of cereal and join us on the porch and we have an impromptu family gathering. 

These simple blessings from God are a perfect example of how awesome He is! 

        “I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel”  (Judges 5:3)

   “Let the peoples praise You, O God;  Let all the peoples praise You.”  (Psalm 67:3) 

Today, I simply want to live my life as an offering of praise to my God, Jesus Christ.  May the LORD grant you simple blessings today!


                                                      (Letters of John Newton)

                                    “The Lord reigns! Let the earth rejoice!” Psalm 97:1

My dear madam,
He who once bore our sins, and carried our sorrows–is seated upon a throne of glory, and exercises all power in heaven and on earth! Thrones, principalities, and powers, bow before Him! His providence pervades and manages the whole universe, and is as minutely attentive to every part–as if there were only a single object in His view! From the tallest archangel–to the smallest ant or fly–all depend on Him for their being, their preservation, and their powers. He directs the sparrows where to build their nests, and where to find their food. He over-rules the rise and fall of nations; and bends, with an invincible power, and unerring wisdom–all events to His sovereign will! So that while many intend other outcomes–their designs all concur and coincide in the accomplishment of His holy will.

Jesus restrains with an almighty hand–the still more formidable efforts of the powers of darkness. Satan with all his hosts cannot exert their malice a hair’s-breadth beyond the limits of His permission!

This omnipotent Savior is the head and husband of His believing people. How happy are those whom it is His good pleasure to bless! How safe are those whom He has engaged to protect! How honored and privileged are those to whom He is pleased to manifest Himself, and whom He enables and warrants to claim Him as their Friend and eternal potion!

Having redeemed them by His own blood–He esteems them as His treasure, His jewels; and protects them as the pupil of His eye! They shall not lack any good thing. They need not fear. His unerring eye is upon them in every situation; His ear is always open to their prayers; and His everlasting arms are under them for their sure support! On earth He guides their steps, controls their enemies, and directs all His dispensations for their spiritual good. While in heaven He is pleading their cause, preparing a glorious home for them, and communicating down to them reviving foretastes of the glory which they shall shortly enter into!

We sinful worms were once blind to His beauty, and insensible to His love, and would have remained so to the last–had He not revealed His goodness and grace to us!

Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!” Revelation 19:6

In Paul’s second letter to the saints in Corinth, he reminds them that God always ‘leads us in truimph in Christ, and through us diffuses the frangrance of His knowledge in every place.’   Paul continues saying that ‘we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.’  

My simple hope is that those who visit this site will be blessed by the sweet aroma of the Truth of Jesus and His Word .
