Pamela's Daybook: May 3

Today: Hmm...what should I do today?  Oh, right -- VOTE! And when I'm done, I get to head to Melanie's for a couple hours. 

At my writing desk: Curriculum

In the mail: Not much.  I tell RB it's his responsibility to bring me happy mail. Sometimes he doesn't fulfill his responsibility.

Praying for: A wife dealing with her husband's alzheimer's. "We remember their love when they can no longer remember."

Thankful for: "
Hymns that focus on peace: "There's a peace in my heart that the world never gave;" "Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth;" "Peace like a river;" "Peace, perfect peace."

Creating: A fun project with Melanie and the kids. Check in tomorrow to see it!

I'm reading: I've had some books recommended to me I'm looking forward to reading. One is, "We Are Afghan Women," by the G. W. Bush Institute.

Postmarking: I found a new tuck-in for my cards -- Colorful Blessing messages by Christian Art Gifts. They are 3"x4" cards with a message or Scripture to color, or can be sent for the recipient to color. I was delighted with them. Only $4.41 for 44 cards -- 10 cents each.

Favorite quote: 
"Peace is not the absence of trouble, but the presence of Christ." Sheila Walsh


  1. Oooo I love those color me tuck-ins!! What a great way to send cheer!

  2. This is why I smile at everyone. I know that a simple smile can cure someone's bad day!

  3. Interesting - I'd never seen color me tuck-ins before. And, I fully agree that smiling can bring peace and joy. Thanks!

  4. I love your favourite quote on peace, and how simple this post is very calming :)

  5. All it takes is just one smile :)

  6. I had never seen those before, cool.

  7. Oh, I love those cards. What a cute idea!
