The Simple Woman’s Daybook: September 11, 2018

For Today…

Simple Woman's Daybook

Looking out my window… dark. It was sunny today, but I’d be happy with rain again.

I am thinking… about the church mission statements I have been researching for the Vestry.

I am thankful… for the naptime I got today, considering that I’ve been getting up at 6 to medicate my kid and do his morning tube feed.

One of my favorite things… cold drinks. I prefer pretty much everything I drink to be cold year-round.

I am wearing… jammies. Clothes for today were a green shirt and dark wash denim capris.

I am creating… characters, places, and plotlines for my NaNo piece.

I am reading… Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans. It’s the chapter on Deliverance Stories and I’m enjoying it immensely.

I am hoping… I can get my internship paperwork together sooner than later.

I am learning… how to keep Daniel from puking up his feeds.

In my kitchen… Dad made sauce and pasta from scratch a few nights ago. It was awesome.

In the school room… Daniel is back to school and loving it.

Post Script… This is fun to watch.

Shared Quote… “Of course, the fact that a single biblical text can mean many things doesn’t mean it can mean anything. Slave traders justified the exploitation of black people by claiming the curse on Noah’s son Ham rendered all Africans subhuman. Many Puritans and pioneers appealed to the stories of Joshua’s conquest of Canaan to support attacks on indigenous populations. More recently, I’ve heard Christians shrug off sins committed by American politicians because King David assaulted women too. Anytime the Bible is used to justify the oppression and exploitation of others, we have strayed far from the God who brought the people of Israel out of Egypt, “out of the land of slavery” (Exodus 20:2).” —Rachel Held Evans

A moment from my day… The altar flowers on Sunday in memory of my grandfather whose 100th birthday would have been Tuesday. Ich liebe dich, Opa.
