Outside our window...
Big Clouds. Blue water. Rhododendrons in full bloom.
I am thankful...
for the FRIENDSHIP of God.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
I am wearing...
A sky blue skirt and top with a floral cardigan sweater. My sweater has pearl buttons, so I put on some pearl earrings too. I have a pair of brown open toed heels. My walking shoes are in the car. When I am done with this post, I will pick up the children from music lessons and we will go for a walk.
From the kitchen..
We just finished a pot of white chicken chili. I suppose the next "pot" will be tortilla soup.
I must use up the fresh cilantro. Maybe tacos also. But you all are probably tired of tacos.
I am learning...
That the truth matters more to me than perspective.
That many people will fight hard for their perspective while denying the truth.
That Truth never changes, but perspective always does.
I am creating...
Nothing. But the girls are working on scrapbook pages and Noah is making fun things from his Physics Kit.
I am happy to be around such creative people all day.
To buy a pot of flowers from the nursery today. I'll put it on a tree stump by our front door.
I love flowers, don't you?
I am remembering...
That my Auntie Nina and my Mom liked nuts.
A friend made us some wonderful chocolate chip cookies chock full of walnuts.
So yummy and such a cozy memory.
I am reading...
Boundaries by Henry Cloud and John Townsend
Around the house...
Around the house...
A place for everything and everything in it's place.
Homemaking can be so satisfying at times!
A quote to share...
"The gospel is wide enough to include everyone and narrow enough to exclude legalists."
~ John MacArthur
Some of my favorite things...
Flamenco guitar music
A few plans for the month:
The Santos Times are in a place of waiting on the Lord.
I cannot plan for a whole month! I hardly know what tomorrow will bring. We are just waiting and taking one day at a time. I do plan on going for a walk, on taking the children to their sewing class tomorrow, seeing the chiropractor and perhaps visiting with some friends later in the week.
Life is hard yet pleasant, and we are waiting, waiting, waiting.
At least the waiting is also RESTING.
Resting in the sovereignty of a Great and Loving Father.
Some picture thoughts to share:
We took a short trip to California last week ~ just the children and I.
It was five days full of sunshine! What a blessing!
God bless the rest of your month of May. Leave me a comment and say Hi. I'll be sure to return the visit.
