it has been a good day

I haven't written in a while because my posts were beginning to sound monotonous. Half-term week has been good to me; lots of reading done but very little paperwork done so I have to make amends tomorrow and get it over and done with. Thank You, Lord for another day.

Been reading another Lee Child book and I am amazed at the skill of this writer. The book seems to start off very simply and one wonders how he is going to fill the whole book up and then like endless tentacles, strands begin to kind of unravel from one situation. Amazing talent. Lord, thank You that I am a writer too even if I do not see how big things could be now. The talent is Yours, the inspiration is Yours so into Your Hands I commit this gift.

And I had an amazing day with Dionne today. Lord, thank You for good friends and thank You for the gift of laughter, Amen!
Thank You, Father for You!

Half-term beckons; what joy and bliss!

I am almost euphoric about the next week because it will be half-term week. There is something so delicious about waking up with no agenda for me because it just smacks of freedom and liberty, where one is not dashing into the day, rushing to do someone else's bidding; hence my intense desire for self-employment.

Don't know when, don't know how but know that the Lord has heard my prayer concerning that and will bring to pass this desire as I continue to seek His face. That is the most important thing and to that end I press on and strive to fulfil.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

I am still here

I haven't written here in a while because there was nothing else to write but to report that I was feeling tired. Still am and also recovering from a very bad cold but felt like I had to post something before I slipped out of the habit again.

I have been doing my best to eat healthy foods but today I have really, really indulged so I must have put back a few pounds again. Ah, well, what to do? Don't feel too bad about it since I feel like I need some TLC and a breakthrough somehow.

Lord, my times are in Your Hands. Thank You for today, Lord. Thank You for life, Amen.

Low level blues

Today I realise that frustration is part of the reason why I have been feeling a little tired; I have not done much with my days for the past week or so and it is beginning to get to me. Now that I know, I will try to be more mindful of frittering away my time.

Lord, my times are in Your Hands. Please help me do my best all the time and help me not to be led by emotion all the time. Sometimes one has got to do what one has got to do.

Thank You, Lord for ideas and strategies continually, Amen.

Midweek slump

I don't know why I am feeling so tired today; I haven't done anything out of the the ordinary and yet I feel so tired and should go to bed within the next half-hour.
Lord, thank You for today and for Your grace always, Amen.

What to do but give thanks?

I am feeling a bit disappointed because I was not able to make the most of this weekend and was not able to rest as much as I would have liked to. It happens, Nana, get over it.
What to do but to keep on giving thanks? Hope to make the most of next week.
Thank You, Lord for today and forgive my stroppiness, Amen.

Lord, be glorified in my teaching

Second day of coaching the boys and today I feel a little bit drained because I came home a bit late .

I have prayed for strategies to deal with the boys and I will continue to thank God for those strategies and ask for some for myself in the process!

I believe things are going to work out fine with God's grace and help. Lord, be Lord of our home and our hearts and our minds and in all that we do, be magnified and glorified indeed, Amen!

First day of formal in-house coaching

Today was the first day when I started supervising my own kids with their homework and it has gone quite well, thankfully. Complicated stuff before finally getting this breakthrough. I hope things get better and better and I will be able to help them achieve their very best, all five of them.

The little lady went up to bed early so hopefully she should be up early tomorrow.
I am so grateful for today, Lord.
Thank You for Your mercies with each passing day, Amen.
