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

Outside my window… sunshine, a gentle breeze, cars parked at the neighbor’s.

I am thankful for… cooler temps; everyone who has helped and encouraged with setting up my new classroom, especially hubby, M & L, and Aunt.

I am wearing… jammies and a pink robe

Some plans for the rest of the week… survival mode, practices, church parent meeting, Labor Day weekend at the end of the week!

I am currently reading… Teacher’s Manuals.

I am hoping… to have some balance with work and home. The boys got way too many fast food meals with hubby gone last week too.

On my mind… Dad changing rooms at the VA Center (a good thing) and wondering when I’m going to make it there to see him.
Hearing…. Quietness of the house with someone still asleep and two someones gone already for a soccer tournament in another town.

I am praying that……. Family going through a difficult time will have reprieve and other family will have healing and softened hearts.

From the kitchen… we do have breakfast food in the house and managed to eat dinner at home at least twice (I can’t remember some of the days!)

Around the house… have a pet stain on the wonderful, new, clean, soft, plush, freize carpet to keep working on!

One of my favorite things… when hubby comes home after being gone for three days, surprising him at the airport, watching the boys run to him.

From my picture journal…

Pictures from end of the summer visit to preserve when family was in town.
