Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Anet's Daybook

Outside my window… not looking out - it's sunny and hot. I want to keep it as cool in here as possible.

I am thankful for… Dad being closer!

I am wearing… olive cargo shorts, purple Smithsonion t-shirt

Some plans for the rest of the week… haircut & dentist, boys to see Pink, Uncle & Brudder - meeting up with them for the weekend

I am currently reading… Cure or the Common Life by Lucado

I am hoping… to continue finding God’s open doors and to have time to talk with/pray with hubby.

On my mind… heading to the airport, dropping off for sports, the heat, job situation

Hearing…. the boys watching sports bloopers on the laptop

Pondering these words...
Be content with who you are, and don't put on airs. God's strong hand is on you; he'll promote you at the right time. I Peter 5:6 msg
You Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you. Isa. 26:3 tev

I am praying that……. a friend who lost her husband unexpectedly last week will be comforted and carried through the numbness

From the kitchen… lots of stuff in the fridge ready for company and a busy week - watermelon & cantaloupe, chicken salad, and chicken & beans for tortillas.

Around the house… so many "fancied up" things thanks to hubby - new curtains in two rooms, lots of things fixed, a painted bathroom & new shower curtain, painted baseboards and a new ceiling fan!

One of my favorite things… cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew

From my picture journal

I guess cousins do this. We really do have plenty of bed space in the house.

  1. Oh, I so love that picture. Good times with cousins. I've read the Max Lucado book - that is good stuff, too. Hope you get that praying time with your husband soon. God bless.

  2. I love the picture of the boys. I remember how special cousins are. Nice to know you are a Christian mom and wife. Our world needs more. I hope you have a great week. Doylene
