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 Three

1. Transportation - Hubby will be with his VA family by midnight tonight. Note the transportation is a blessing. I'm very sad he's gone. I pray he and his brother will be a wonderful blessing to his grandmother.

2. Diversity - I'm thankful that my children have an opportunity to be around many people who are not exactly like them. (Umm, sometimes. Last week we stopped in the city for gas and L. said "Mom, let's get out of here. I just saw someone take something out of their sock." The something was a wallet. Once in the car though, my sons educated me that people carry weapons in their socks. I didn't know!)

3. Naivety - mine is a blessing and really my boys are naive to many things going on in culture. And it should be so! Please read the Scripture at the top of my blog. We don't want to fit into our culture.

4. Hubby - he made a stop at M's school to deliver his ID/lanyard and then my school to deliver my lunch I left in the fridge. I know it made him late in starting an already busy day and I really appreciated it!

  1. Beautiful post!
    Wow, I almost did a post on diversity, I might still do it, just because it's a bit different than your.
    Transportation,what a true blessing!
    Thank you so much for stopping at my blog.
    Many blessings to you,

  2. No...we live in this world but we are not of this world. My boys are naive but also aware of what is truly out there...their armor is placed quite firmly.


  3. Wow. That is a good one, Diverstiy. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love your heart of gratitude for transportation while your husband is away. I will be praying for you to be together again soon :) and by that same gift of transportation!

    Deep meaning behind such graciousness!


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