A Daybook for 2017
I JUST CAME from reading a blog I’ve never seen before. It’s called The Littlest Way, and it is written by Jenny. She’s a southern-belle, Catholic lady who lives out her life in Christ before her reading audience, which now includes me. I am simply taken by her simple (yet profound) blog that glories in her daily and moment-by-moment interaction with God.
Each year, she starts a new Daybook, which seems to be a weekly accounting of the things that go on in her everyday life, and I really like the idea. So I’m
stealing borrowing it. I’m a week behind already, because I didn’t happen upon her blog until yesterday, and so didn’t have the idea to follow her lead until now.
But that’s okay.
So here’s my first Daybook post.
Thanking God for…
My family—my husband, five kids and their spouses, and eleven grandkids
My church and church family, including two small groups and a Bible study group
My health (I had two hip replacement surgeries—on the same hip!—and a cancer surgery last year!)
A word to guide me this year
Direction for my blog (do I monetize this year?)
The business my son and husband started in November last year
So many things to ponder about! There are some major changes happening this year in my extended family, and those changes will impact my husband and me, too. I’m also pondering the Lord’s leading and teaching as I spend time in His Word.
Chuck Missler’s series on Revelation (again)
The wisdom of my dear friends who meet with me each week to study the Word of God

In the kitchen…
I started a vegetarian diet on New Year’s Eve. I’m learning how to eat properly without meat in my diet.
