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… It’s Labor Day – sunshine, a little wind, our neighbors doing lawn work

I am thankful for… many wonderful moments with family and friends this weekend. We celebrated getting the cotton ball jar full (see explanation here), spent Sunday with dear friends from Texas, and hubby and I had a date on the front porch this morning before everyone woke up (I went and got Panera food because the bakery we wanted was closed for the holiday.)

I am wearing… very old flag tshirt and navy sweatpants

Some plans for the rest of the week… hopefully rescheduling a haircut, open house at L’s school, end of week trip with Aunt!

I am currently reading… still teaching materials

I am hoping… to find a routine for home and work

On my mind… all that needs to be done for school/work (wish everyone could join me for a few hours to cut out all the things I laminated). Also M & L’s accomplishments this week – M winning his student council election, L’s perfect score on the math section of state tests and a 360 on the kneeboard at the lake yesterday

Hearing…. the fountain outside the window, L just got up and I can hear him behind me checking his email

I am praying that…… our boys will continue to grow and be able to defend their faith. That they will remain faithful.

From the kitchen… chicken, potatoes & zucchini on the grill and salad

Around the house… fairly tidy thanks to hubby and the Fantasy Football draft. I do have lots of stacks and piles hidden and waiting for me to attend to. Hopefully on Fall Break.

One of my favorite things… sitting at the lake with friends – just visiting and enjoying the cool breeze
