Simple Moments and Thoughts

I have taken this wonderful idea from my mom, who found this list on It's very inspiring and helps with doing weekly posts. I have found myself in a rut of writing... what with all the business at school and with the extra activities I have. I feel as though my blog has been a little neglected. But not anymore! Hopefully this list will help.
Thoughts and Moments of the Day
Outside my window...darkness. It's 6:55 in the morning! I love winter, but I do not like waking up in the dark. :D

I am thinking...about our youth group's weekend retreat that starts today. I hope it goes really well and that I will have the energy to be really involved in it.
I am thankful...for our beautiful house that we got to decorate for Christmas last evening. It looks beautiful!

From the kitchen...all the lights are off, except for the little Christmas ones by the window, and a lit up church. Charming! :)

I am pajamas and a warm blanket... I'm a little cold in the mornings!

I am reading...just finished Til We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis. Very interesting book and I am still pondering all the meanings of things.

I am hoping...that Tyler arrives safely and happy in only t
en days to Czech!

I am the last day of school for this week. At least today's a pretty easy day!

I am creating...a picture with oil pastels of a window. It's still in its first stages, but I think it could be cool when it's done!

I am hearing...just my little noisemaker (that makes whitenoise) next to my bed. It feels so eery in my room without it! :D

I am praying... for my classmates. I know that some of them are really searching for Jesus!

Around the house... mom is starting to get up, but otherwise its totally quiet. Christmas tree is lit in the corner of the living room. :) Ah, I love Christmas.

One of my favorite things...waking up in the morning when it's dark and going downstairs to see the Christmas tree. :)

A few plans for the rest of the youth group retreat is this weekend. Then I have two tests on Monday and Tuesday in school. And then I need to get some Christmas shopping done! :)

A picture I am sharing... our Christmas tree at night. Ah, how beautiful and cheery it is! :)
