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 Two

1. Easy access to reading material and that my children love to read.

2. Sons who are walking in their father's footsteps/sons who help at home

3. My blender and a yummy peanut butter and banana smoothie. A year ago I wouldn't have dreamed of making this, so it's a blessing that's I've changed my ways!

4. A warm fall day to have the door open and enjoy the breeze, sound of wind chimes and sunset.


  1. You are truly blessed...children that help, cool breezes...delicious drinks...all simple really but so important!


  2. What a Great List!!!

    How we homeschoolers (wait, do you homeschool) take the internet, audio books, the library, and the unending amount of curriculum available for granted!

    And I know, that I forget that not all children LOVE to read like mine. The kids and I always find it odd, when families, mothers, children...haven't even heard of some of the books we can't imagine living without!

    LOVE the list, LOVE it!

  3. Oh I just love the photo of your ds at the grill! (I have 2 boys, 17 and 18 now.) And though I've not made a smoothie of it, I confess that I LOVE pb and bananas!

    Looking forward to reading more blessings!

  4. I just love this post! A heart of the "keeper at home" radiates its gratitude. Pictures are wonderful, too!

  5. Awww, like the picture of your son grilling. Too cute!
    Thanks for visiting my blog! I was so excited to see your name "Annette" as you know we love that name.
    Looking forward to your 'mom' post.


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