psalms 23

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
He leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk
through the dark valley of death,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You welcome me as a guest,
anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
forever.
amen.

This Psalm is usually read at funerals or associated with death.  I find it to be very comforting to read.  The Lord is my shepherd.  It is amazing when I stop to think about all the ways God has blessed me.  It’s actually humbling.  I also love this version, the new living version.  It seems to put things in a easier to read order.

Well, better late than never huh? Maybe not. I spent the entire day (well… most of the day) cleaning and organizing Emelia’s bedroom! Oh my goodness! She has so much stuff! I started just throwing things away about hour five. She never really asks for toys, she’s never really played with her toys much which is maybe why there are so many new looking things in her room. I am so glad to have that done. Amanda helped a little. (Remember she’s working off her ticket … found out it is $103.00) I intentionally finished before Emelia came home from school. It’s just easier that way.

Tonight I fixed Matt and the girls steaks and I had a slice of leftover roast from yesterday on a slice of french bread with a little mayo… fresh veggies on the side with ranch. It was yummy. We had a few cookies left that Matt took care of and some chocolate chip ice cream. I shared mine with Izzy.

Tomorrow I plan to throw something in the crockpot. Probably chicken spaghetti. It’s easy and good. The cooler weather makes slow cooking very appealing. We’ll have broccoli and some garlic toast.

Wednesday is trunk or treat at church. I will fix us a grilled cheese sandwich and some tomato soup for a quick meal before we go. I need to run to the store and get some cheerful decorations for the back of my suburban. Any ideas?

Thursday will be November 1! I can’t hardly believe it is almost November… then almost December! I have not bought ONE present yet! I’m not stressing though. Not much is planned for Thursday, Emelia has basketball practice. I may make a big pot of beans with ham some corn bread.

Friday I may take Matt on a date. We made a plan to alternate planning a date each month. In October Matt took me for Panera bread and a walk through the park… complete with Duck feeding! I am not sure where to take him. Again, any ideas?

Tomorrow is time travel Tuesday! Since it is so close to Halloween, lets travel back to our most memorable Halloween. Did you dress up and go door to door growing up? What was your favorite costume? I’ll put Mr. Linky up later tonight so come and link up and share!
