this is thursday

Outside my window...  Sunshine!  And birds!  We've had a lot of goldfinches and hummingbirds.  All the starlings just had babies so that has been a ruckous.  And some smart crows have been visiting the suet feeder when they think nobody is watching.

I am thankful...  for this face.  My Charlie dog is so loyal and loving.

I am wearing...  Skinny jeans and a gray flowered tunic-style shirt with my fave sandals.

I went...  to our little town's farmers' market with my youngest son today.  I got a jar of honey.  I love how it captures the sunshine, like sunshine in a jar.  And tastes wonderful.  It'll be a great addition to a cup of coffee.

I am reading...  The Hiding Place  by, Corrie Ten Boom

The Hiding Place: Corrie Ten Boom, Deluxe Edition   -     By: Corrie ten Boom

I am hoping...  One of my hens went broody this week, meaning that she got the desire to hatch herself a brood of chicks.  The problem is that without a rooster, none of the eggs they lay are fertile so her efforts are for naught.  And while broody, a hen gets moody and doesn't lay eggs.   So I've been researching how to break a broody hen, researching and fretting and researching some more.  Today, she seems back to normal (although I didn't really do much).  So, my hope is that she starts laying again soon.

In my garden...  There are a lot of things growing and taking shape.  I'm amazed at how it changes day to day.  The other morning as I watered, a hummingbird stopped in to inspect the sprinkler.  They are inquisitive little creatures, and thirsty.

In my kitchen...  Tonight we're having upside down pizza casserole for dinner.

In the homeschool room...  There is less than a month left of school after which my only remaining homeschooler will be off to high school.  And my heart aches a little bit because of it.  He's working through trigonometry and dependent clauses and it's not fun but he's here, and for now, that is enough for me.

One of my favorite things...  those fave sandals I mentioned?  From Wal-Mart of all places!  I could wear these every day.

A favorite quote for today...  Isaiah 46:4  "I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry you, and will deliver you."

God reminds us that He is our creator, our deliverer, our sustainer.  A few verses later, there is a description of some folks that built a "god" out of gold.  They made it, they bear it, they carried it to a place and set it there.  Once there, it didn't move and did absolutely nothing for them.  I'm thankful that my God is not made of stone and is ever present in my trials and victories.

  1. I was thinking of you throughout my day yesterday after reading your last post. I have a quote I'll send you later, it's from a hymn Grace and I were singing last night...can't remember it off the top of my head right now. Isaiah, what a verse, what a promise. God is so good. Isn't it a hope and a joy to meditate on heaven?
    Hope the broody chicken perks up soon. The description of your outfit is cute, I love tunics. The Hiding Place, I've read it so many times! Such a great book all about how God takes care of His children.
    The honey looks so Pooh-bearish, clean and bright. I would dip my finger right in for a taste!
