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 - October Number Three

Outside my window… the usual. Getting ready to see M. pass in front of the window three times. I asked him to walk J, the dog around the triangle 3x.

I am thankful for… a cleanish house, mostly done laundry, new fall clothes, hubby doing all but one game this weekend (I love going and have missed them, but really needed to get some other things done that I never seem to get to).

I am wearing… Levi’s and Hawaii tshirt because it’s the color of L’s soccer team – getting ready to go to the game.

Some plans for the rest of the week… Fall Break, Amy Grant concert, closet cleaning, Dr.’s appts, errands, and haircut.

I am hoping… that my allergies don’t spiral down and that I don’t get a sinus infection this time.

On my mind… Dad

Hearing…. no one is in the house but me, so I don’t hear much. The fan because it’s slightly warm – 85.

I am praying that…… upcoming time with hubby away goes quickly. Also praying for the work hubby has to do and for the boys’ friendships, school, and “down” season of sports.

From the kitchen... Green Chilie Chicken Stew (for small group tonight). I need to make some plans for the rest of the week. It seems that if I don’t make some good plans over the weekend that we really suffer for meals during the week.

Around the house… just a few more laundry items to put away – outside the bushes look scalped. They really needed it – thanks hubby.

One of my favorite things… sweatshirt weather
