For Today -

Outside my window... Beautiful sunshine! It is a really lovely day after a day of heavy rain yesterday!

I am thinking... Of my trips to the ocean over the past month. I loved these times and I am hoping that before Winter arrives I can go again!

I am thankful for... A Heavenly Father who forgives and loves me no matter what! When I stumble He is there. I am reminded of this bible verse:

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried,he shall receive the crown of life,which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him.
                                         James 1:12

 From the learning rooms....That family and friends are so precious. Enjoy every moment and capture beautiful and treasured moments. I have learnt so much on my journey over the past 2 years and I am truly thankful that the Lord brought me to a really hard place. My lessons were needed.

From the kitchen... Cajun chicken,sweet potatoes,vegetables and garlic bread. I love cajun chicken! I seem to post often about cajun chicken!!

I am wearing...White top and jeans

 I am creating...Space! I have been on a little de-clutter a couple of days ago.Giving clothes away and so glad that I can be a blessing to others in need.

 I am going... To watch my recorded shows after I finish this post. I will also catch up with some e-mails too.I was too tired yesterday to get around to these.

I am reading... Catching up on reading some magazines, my nursing journals,and "Finding Peace" by Charles Stanley. This is a wonderful book and Charles talks of a life free from regret,anxiety and fear.

I am hoping... That a telephone call I made earlier today will bring me some good news.

I am hearing... Just the laptop keys as I type.

Around the house... The beautiful fragrance of my candles. I am also trying some plug in fragrances too and they are wonderful!

One of my favorite things...Time to sit and stitch and I think that I will have some time to work on my project this week.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Appointments. Hair trim.Catch up with mail.Spending time with my daughters and my new grandson Taio.A trip or two to the city centre to browse the shops.

 Here is a picture thought I am sharing... A couple of photos taken on my last trip to the ocean of Natalie,James and Taio
