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

Before and After

A few weekends ago the weather was nice in the evening and Hubby was fixing the van in the garage. The boys set up a "basketball court".

I called it "redneck basketball". Our big gift to the boys for Christmas (given early so we didn't have to transport it twelve hours away and then back home) was a portable goal. Whatever gave us that idea? The Homer bucket is now retired...

Do you like M's (on the right) new hair cut? We did that the first day of break. He was so excited to have his hair done at a "salon" instead of home.

More info on the van: Hubby has done lots of work on it and has saved loads of money. He has also taken to a local place and gotten new tires, alignment, some transmission stuff he didn't want to waste his time one, etc. He's taken it there five times. I think today it's all finally done (hope so, we'll be on the road soon). The shop also refunded his money for our trouble.
