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

Just What Did We Do?

(This is a copy of a post from Butterfly Wings - I'm trying out new (to me) features and seeing if I like the way this looks)

M & L were at camp a while back. They were having fun riding go karts, ziplines and the like. We missed them, but of course the conversation eventually came around to "What did we ever do before having children?" Friday night hubby and I went to dinner. It started pouring while there so we had to make a mad dash for his truck. It was only sprinkly as we came into our neighborhood.

When we first drove in we noticed lots of people in their yards taking pictures. This is what had everyone outside...

We decided to sit on the front porch and enjoy how nicely the rain had cooled things off. This is hubby waiting for me....
Before dinner hubby had fed the flower bed, transplanted the geranium and trimmed the shrubs - you can see the geranium in this photo of J. the dog.

Later when it got dark, we sat in the rocker again. This time it was to view the spectacular lightning in the east sky. It was in three separate sections and almost appeared choreographed. Oh, wait a minute - it was - by God! Hubby enjoyed ice cream while I splurged and had a rootbear float. Before it got too late we went in and watched Old Dogs and You've Got Mail. (We saw You've Got Mail in the theatre in Cedar Rapids right before M. was born.) It was a wonderful evening at home.
