daybook


Outside my window... sleet falling, making me feel as if I am in a pinball machine

I am thinking...about the Amazon order of Lenten books I placed recently, waiting

I am thankful...we were able to bundle up and take a walk outside earlier

I am baking...wheat bread, the smell of freshly baked bread is wonderfully delicious!

I am learning...the spiritual as well as physical disciplines of fasting

In the kitchen...lentil soup, served with a sprinkle of rosemary salt and a dash of balsamic vinegar

I am creating...a scrapbook of Rose's life, almost eighteen years of living memories

I am reading...Bread and Wine (Readings for Lent and Easter), and A Different Sun by Elaine Neil Orr

I am hoping...to be able to sow my lettuce seeds soon

I am crocheting...an afghan in sherbet colors for Charlotte's bed

I am embroidering...a tea cozy, involving some appliqueing...fun!

Around the house...a lick and a promise, and the refrigerator needs cleaning

This afternoon...a pot of tea, reading a Sower series book of Issac Newton's life, and a game of Guess Who.

"It is in the laboratory of life that our initial consecration to Christ is tested, proven, and demonstrated in daily, moment-by-moment choices and responses, as we surrender to the sovereignty and will of God."

Surrender


I have seen this idea of a daybook for several years, today seemed like a good day to post in like manner.

Your bread is beautiful!!! I bet it smells delicious. I really want to hear what you think of A Different Sun. Would it make a good read for a book club (thinking my neighborhood book club with a really diverse group of ladies).

Cathy, I can just smell your bread in my mind, heavenly. I so enjoyed Bread and Wine. I have tried many of her recipes and love them. It is such am insightful book, one I can reread and continue to learn from and enjoy at the same time.
