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

Daybook - Number Four

Outside my window… darkness, light and sounds of our fountain – beautiful weather to have the window open and hear it. Smells like someone is using a fire pit somewhere.

I am thankful for… L’s shoulder feeling better, that M’s team made it to the playoffs, for Hubby and for one more day of Fall Break!

I am wearing… VBS t-shirt and jeans

Some plans for the rest of the week… getting the oil changed in my car, missing Hubby while he’s in VA, trying a new cabbage roll recipe, L’s last art club meeting

I am hoping… for a simple holiday season

On my mind… the fun the boys and I had walking around the Chili Festival in the rain yesterday. By the time we got home I was so wet that I could feel rain trickling down my sides! It was worth it for the sheer silliness and for the new chili recipe I have!

Hearing…. Hubby must be on itunes. I’m hearing all kinds of music. The fan and fountain (I think we just like the sound of the fan).

I am praying that…… those who are distant come closer (I know that’s vague)

From the kitchen... chicken that needs to be put on the grill tomorrow evening, fresh veggies and cheerios bars (that I’m convinced are more breakfast food than dessert since they have cheerios and peanut butter in them!)

Around the house… a coolness from open windows, scent of pumpkin candle, a cleaned out linen closet

One of my favorite things… Sunday afternoons
From my picture journal…
