Simple Woman’s Daybook – February 2, 2016



Linking up with

For Today…  Tuesday February 2, 2016

Outside my windowIt is sunny and 39 degrees now, but going up to 51 here in NJ.
I am thinkingHow much work I need to do on my 2 blogs. I have one that is for writings only. Such as stories/poems, fiction or non-fiction and one that is my mental health advocate blog and daily devotions, religions singers and my daily gratitude post.
I am thankfulToday, Dear Lord, I am thankful for your grace, forgiveness and for allowing me to follow you after 40 years in my own private desert/hell.
I am wearingmy night gown as I just stepped out of the shower and not ready to get dressed yet.
I am creatinga mess in front of me with all of my notes on my writing and the articles I write for the International Bipolar Foundation. Need to figure out how to organize it.
I am goingto make notebook lists for all these scraps of paper so all notes are together.
I am wonderingwhat to do first. There is so much around here besides the blogs and my articles to do.
I am readingthe Bible verse by verse starting in Genesis. I haven’t touched a bible much in the last 40 years. I rebelled to my own detriment, but God still watched over me.
I am hopingfor a mild winter. I have had enough snow with that one storm to last me the rest of winter.
I am learningtolerance and forgiveness through God and to ask for what I need.
In my kitchenthere is practically no food.
A favorite quote for todayWith God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
A peek into one of my daysDepending on how I sleep at night determines how early or late I get up. I slept 4 hours last night and wide awake. (Bipolar is a big problem). Then I check my email, check blog posts, write prompts and work on my articles for the one blog I am writing for so far. Have applied to others. I don’t eat all day, just dinner and bedtime snack. Occasionally I can force myself into the shower (bipolar/depression).
One of my favorite thingsis writing. I love to write.

      I am doing the best I can. Some days I just can’t manage it completely, but at least I am doing something rather than my useless old self used to do. Thank you for your support.

        Dear Tessa,
        Remember, and live in, Jesus’ Love for you (1 John 4:19). I know some days can be hard, but keep your gaze on Jesus’ face– how Gracious and Compassionate, how quick to forgive and slow to anger, and how abounding in Love and Faithfulness He is toward you (Exodus 34:6). “For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them.” (Psalm 44:3, NIV)
        You are favored and loved, my dear Tessa! It is not in/through our power that we live, but HIS. Let Him carry you through the tough parts, relying on His Strength and Guidance to do all He wants you to do! Be comforted by that. 🙂 I love you!

        In Christ Jesus,
        Annalee ❤
