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

Counting My Blessings - Day Four

35. Scouts (I realized yesterday that instead of counting new each day, I should be doing a running tally. Hence the number 35 and not 1.). We've been a part of either Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts (or both) for almost six years now and it's been a blessing in the lives of our whole family. The boys have learned many new skills, had lots of fun and made new friends. They've practiced many qualities including leadership, persistence, and respect. We've all had quality family moments together camping, building pinewood derby cars, making cakes, completing service projects, and doing other activities. Hubby and I have had the opportunity to teach "God and Me" and "God and Family" classes several times to both churched and unchurched boys. Scouts has been a blessing to our whole family for many years and hopefully for many more to come.

This picture is from 2008 before a Blue and Gold Banquet. M was a Bear and L. a Tiger. In March I posted pictures from M's Arrow of Light at my former blog, Butterfly Wings.


  1. Wow, #35 already! How wonderful to have posted so many blessings. So neat to learn so many things in scouts and be blessed with that knowledge.

  2. Dear Annette...thank you for visiting my "little space" and your kind comment! It is always a blessing to have a new "cherished heart" come by to chat. You truly have many blessings that you have shared! Simple blessings! ♥ Teri

  3. I have been kinda cheating and making a list as I think about things.. scouts is on my list. We are involved in Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts - what a blessing that has been for all of us!

  4. Praising the Lord with you. I love the themes "God and Me and God and family"


Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
