My Daybook

October 27, 2009


Outside my window... raining. cold. just makes you want to snuggle up with some books!

I am very blessed I am

I am thankful for... The love of the Lord. The hope that is in HIM. Family who love unconditionally. Friends who care and show an example of Jesus!

I am wearing..pj bottoms and a hoodie

I am remembering...pressing leaves in wax paper as a child in my Nanas glassed in porch in Missouri in the Fall. So many trees and soo many colors....what precious times those were!

I am going... to begin walking and watching my calories. I have done nothing but sit it seems for the last 6 months and oh my!

I am reading...Shades of Blue-Karen Kingsbury, Finding Purpose Beyond our Pain- Paul Meier My Thomas Nelson review book
The Proper Care and Feeding of our Husbands- Dr Laura and Tell Me Something True -Leila Cobo

I am hoping... things work out for me to work a couple of days for my husband doing inventory and that my Dad starts feeling stronger.

On my mind... Dad. As you all know he is always positive and encouraged. When I spoke with him this morning he sounded weak and frustrated at not knowing what was causing his weakness. He had chemo last week and each one is 3 weeks apart so he isn't due until 2 more Mondays.

Noticing that... we are getting back to the simpleness of Life.

Pondering these words... God discover Himself to the "babes" and hides himself in thick darkness from the wise and the prudent. We must simplify our approach to HIM. We must strip down to essentials (and they will be found to be blessedly few)
We must put away all effort to impress, and come with the guileless candor of childhood. If we do this, without doubt God will quickly responds. T.W.Tozer ~ The Pursuit of God

From the kitchen... Working together with my husband....low calorie salads, grilled chicken, steamed veggies

Around the house...quiet evenings reading together with a warm crackling fire

One of my favorite things~ planning, anticipating the Holidays ahead :)

From my picture journal

Today is Nerd day at school ~ did pretty good didn't he....LOL

Love and Blessings



You can always count on Jantz to get into it! Dawson, on the other hand, said, "No way." Hope you are doing well! Maybe I'll stop by this afternoon? Will you be home?


It is raining and cool here also sweetie. I am praying for you, and your dear dad. Great looking nerd, lol Have a beautiful day.

E @ Scottsville

Wouldn't it be awful if he got to school and realized he was the ONLY one who decided to dress up? What a look he's got goin' there!!!

I'm so jealous that I'm not at home wearing PJ's!!! I'd LOVE TO BE!!! =0)


My daughter's nerd day is tomorrow!! They had disco day today - should've seen her!! I will post pics tonight...OMW!!



Remember me on these rainy stormy cold days. They are my absolute favorite and have been since as long as I can remember.

Your son looks amazing. I don't think you could have added anything different. Great ideas!

Prayers still ascending to God for all these things we hope for with regards to you and your dad. God is faithful and I am sure He has something mighty in the works for your dad he simply can't ignore.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat


It rained all night long, here, but we desperately needed it. I am trying to watch my calories and walk more. I enjoyed walking on the mountain with the dogs this weekend while we were up there. I was a bit winded, but overall I did well considering the high altitude, my weight, and allergies.

Blessings, hugs, and prayers, andrea

He & Me + 3

Loren, Cute pic... I loved reading your post. I am praying for your Dad and was wondering how he was doing. I pray for his healing and strength. It is raining and cold here too.. I love the warmth of a fire. We have had a bonfire the last two nights, That was fun... Blessings. Audrey


Wish it will rain here...Just very windy with dark clouds. I think your son is the most handsome "nerd" still for you and your dad. May God's love and grace cover you all. love to you in Christ.

Proverbs 27:19

Hey Loren!

I've read that book by Dr. Laura and I liked it. I also read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage." Someone gave me "Stop Whining and (I forgot the rest...oh no), but I hadn't started that one yet out of fear that I will see my name in bold letters as soon as I open the book! :)



I have to say your son looked a bit like a real nerd in those clothes; LOL. How fun!

I love to read too but I never seem to have enough time. We're actually having a cold front come into Phoenix but of course, that means in the 60s for a few days and then back to 80.



Nerd day at school. Hahaha! That's funny.
I can relate to sitting for 6 months.
Praying for your dad Loren.

Love and blessings!

Beth.. One Blessed Nana
