For Today -

Outside my window...Sunshine streaming through the window! So in contrast to yesterday when cold and wet all day!

  I am thinking...Of my excitement at buying plants and flowers today from the garden centre. Beautiful colours and a variety of flowers. Tomorrow is planting day! The garden will look so lovely and colourful.

  I am thankful for...Blessings and more blessings.It is wonderful to sit and reflect on how God has blessed me in abundance.He has been ever faithful.

  From the learning rooms...That when things are going smoothly this is the time Satan attacks and you find yourself going through a storm again. I am reminded of this bible verse:

God is our refuge and strength,a very present  help in trouble.
                             Psalm 46:1

   From the kitchen... Salmon,potatoes,corn and spinach. Trifle with cream.

I am wearing...Blue jeans and a beige top and black blouse.

  I am creating... Another cross stitch on "Time with God." It will not take long but the words are full of wisdom. I will stitch this a few times and give as gifts to friends.

I am going... To really get around to that de-clutter I have been talking about for months! Much needed and I must get in a motivated mood!

I am reading... My bible.Doing a bible study too which I know I am going to enjoy so much!Catching up with a huge pile of magazines!

I am hoping... That this wonderful weather continues all week. I love these sunny and warm days. England does not see too many it has to be said!

I am hearing... The tv on and cars going by outside in the street.

Around the house... A beautiful vase of pink lilies that my hunny bought for me. So pretty and the fragrance is wonderful!

One of my favorite things... Those relaxing chill days! They are not many but when I can get one I enjoy it to the maximum!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Meeting friends. Spending some time with my hunny and family.Snail mail. Bible study.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... A couple of photos from a trip to the Isle Of Wight last year.

I agree that we often get lazy when things are going smoothly...we must always be ready to face the enemy of our souls with God's Word...how powerful it is!! And...yippee for de-cluttering...I need to do some of that too! How does it all overtake us so quickly?? Where does it all come from?? LOL!

    Have a wonderful week!
    In HIS Love,
