*::~... 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV ...~::*

*~Tuesday afternoon~*

*~:: ... Bible reading, journal-ing, picture taking, praying, music listening, lake viewing, bracing against the wind blowing, gently swinging, thinking. These took up an hour or two of my afternoon on Tuesday, much like this day. ... ::~*
Psalm 103:8 NET
Job 41:10-11 ESV

My night

11:15 p.m. Settling down beneath the covers of my bed. Making sure the big, stuffed, silky bear, known as Snoopy, is settled just right under the covers, too.
11:18 p.m. Darkness fills the room. I can feel my dog rearranging the blankets just so to get comfortable at the foot of my bed. Big breaths, almost like deep sighs, come from the form next to me. His little 2-year-old form moves ever so slightly as he gets comfy. Little TM and his three older brothers are at my house because their mom gave birth to a little girl yesterday morning.
11:32 p.m. His little body scoots closer. His little searching fingers find my hand. His body begins to relax and I know he's starting to fall asleep. His little hand rests over mine, content to know I'm there with him in the dark room.
Many times throughout the nigh
t I woke to find him close enough to me that I could almost be sure he was glued to my side. The heat emanating from his little footie-jammie clad body made it nearly unbearably hot, but not quite. Also, throughout the night I woke to feel his little fingers intertwined in my hair, one of his favorite things to do is play with people's long hair.
This morning I woke to his little hands searching out strands of my hair to play with and his big brown eyes looking intently at my sleepy face. Cuteness! What a way to start a morning.

Time with Jesus

My Journal entry from this afternoon ...
You do not even know the joy I have right now ... 56 F (yes, that is the temperature :), sunshine, just a whisper of a breeze, purple-plaid clogs, French Vanilla Cappuccino, 2 of my favorite Bibles, Jesus in my heart, finding all I need is Jesus, K. J. plays on my MP3 player, Leah's freshly washed sheets and blankets hanging on the line a few feet away, my green rose table, bench and chairs! My list could go on ... but I won't.
The sun feels so warm on my face and arms, but not even close to being as warm as the Son in my heart!

Oh, Jesus I love Thee!!
God has so graciously answered my cried-out pleas for a love and joy for Him! Oh, the joy and fullness Jesus brings!! These feeble words don't even begin to touch how I feel. I feel like singing out praises to my Jesus at the top of my lungs!
"Oh, taste and see that the LORD IS GOOD ... " Psalm 34:8a " (emphasis mine)

My table at first ...
Keda was enjoying the sunshine with me ...
Said clogs ...
And again, this time you can see the wool socks I have on ... :)
My two bibles, two journals, pen bag, cup of cappuccino, MP3 player and pen ...
Velvet-y ribbon I glued onto my journal for a bookmark ... it's very soft and pink! ...
The one of the many pictures in my Bible to help my find my favorite verses quicker ...


Green Peppers and Onions fried ever so slightly in butter to make them warm and just crunchy. Eggs whipped with a little bit of milk so they are light and fluffy. Scrambled. Just before done tomatoes go in and then topped with cheese, salt and pepper! Yum!
