One of the first blog link-ups that I remember reading, long before I ever thought of writing at my own blogsite, was “The Simple Woman’s Daybook.” I was so intrigued by the thought of women sharing moments from their day with each other, bringing touches of beauty into each other’s lives. But I’ve never thought of linking my own post there, until now! For the week after Easter, when spring is on our minds, I thought a bit of reflection might be a bright spot. Shared from the framework offered at:
Spring feels so slow in coming this year! Barely above freezing temps are the forecast for this entire week.
I am thinking
the birds that are singing remind me that spring is already on the way, whether I feel it or not!
I am thankful
for the Resurrection! Jesus is alive and my heart is washed clean with His forgiveness!
“The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.'” Matthew 28:5-6
One of my favorite things
is praying with a friend, and enjoying a cup of tea.
I am creating
a scrapbook-style wall hanging based on a handwritten devotional from a friend. Hopefully I can share the finished project in the next few weeks!
I am wearing
soft and stretchy black workout pants and my even softer purple hoody. –Standard Fibro garb! 🙂
I am reading
for good preparation times as my husband is scheduled for total knee replacement surgery on April 19th. OH Lord Jesus, help us to trust in your #Sufficiency even more!
I am learning
that it is good to be desperate for Jesus.
“My desperation and my need drive me toward Him, not away from Him. To be desperate for Him is to find Him.” From a great devotional that I have been reading every morning: “Mornings in the Word” by Tammy Mashburn. You can find Tammy blogging at: Tammy L Mashburn.
I’ve been loving the supplement of “Terra Greens” (from Doterra) added to my green smoothies. It has a spicy ginger undertone that really livens up my lunchtime!
In my garden
If I can’t enjoy the garden outside yet, then I can be thankful for the blessing of indoor garden blooms! This amaryllis is the same one from my post here in 2016!
“Nothing is merrier than Jesu to sing.” –Richard Rolle (Quoted by Amy Carmichael in Thou Givest They Gather.)
A moment from my day
I don’t take for granted the strength to do a daily load of laundry now. And thank God for washing machines!
When I heard this song, it seemed written just for me in this season of letting Christ bring His new heart into my stony-fleshed places. I pray you will be blessed in the listening:
Are there moments in your day that you could share? I would love to hear what has been blessing you lately!
