Our Purpose

- to know God and use our entire lives in service to Him.

- to stand in the gap through prayer, giving and service to viable ministries in Latin America.

- to be transparent helpers of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, using our resources and skills that through the Holy Spirit, we might encourage and equip those who have less.

- to share a living perspective from Latin America to our churches, friends and family in the states and beyond.

Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday September 7, 2009

The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window... Overcast skies. Big broken down bus. LOTS of green weeds in the vacant lot across the road.

I am thinking... that patience is a virtue I do not posses at the moment.

I am thankful for...the knowledge that God is still in control. That He is just. That He will redeem it all.

From the learning rooms... Timeline figures are on the agenda for today. I LOVE the theory and someday, after 12 years of school they will have these awesome books to look back over with the whole deal laid out. Why oh why then, is it so difficult for me to do these weekly????

From the kitchen... We will be using the last of the hoarded sweet chili sauce and have Thai Peanut Chicken with Coconut Rice. I found red peppers in the BIG store and couldn't resist. It will be heavy on the veggies. :)

I am wearing... black tshirt, grey Lucy capris. Silver hoops. Old chacos. It's a basic kind of a day. Funny thing though - my husband is wearing his black shirt and grey pants. We didn't call each other first either...:)

I am creating... an amazon list. We have friends coming down to help with child care for a missionary conference in a couple of weeks and they've volunteered to bring us goodies. :)

I am going... on a girl date with Janelle this afternoon!

I am reading... Black by Ted Dekker. I'm borrowing the series and I just wanted to read it one more time before I give it back. Gulliver will be able to travel in a few days.

I am hoping... for cooler weather. I'm so tired of being s.w.e.a.t.y..

I am hearing... Riley verbally go through his multiplication/division facts. Something about doing it verbally helps the kiddo crank out the work.

Around the house... Kids, pets, and us.

One of my favorite things... a cool breeze.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

More great school days, si Dios permite, and stay ahead of the food needs of the family.

Alan has some serious computer work to get to and then a few more trips to bridge project sites.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Here we are in our matching outfits.

Those 326 Kids Against Hunger boxes in the background are now part of our home motif. This morning was the monthly food delivery to the Special Needs families in Quelecasque so we were packing up boxes this morning.

Sorry about the obnoxious backlight and the goofy girl hanging out behind us. This is what happens when your paid photographer is a 7 year old. You would not believe how many picture we had to have her take to get a semi-decent one.

Hey I used to decorate just like that.... then we moved to a slightly bigger house and I decluttered more :lol:

Hope you get some breezes - I enjoyed the current one more in your honour.
