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 - Dec. 4

Outside my window…my car that I didn’t pull in the garage last night.

I am thankful for… the boys each feeling better (each felt not so well at some point during the past week), going out with friends, and Christmas shopping.

I am wearing… blue flannel pajamas, it’s Saturday!

Some plans for the rest of the week… a couple Christmas parties, a couple Scout things, and dinner & a play with the boys and Aunt

I am hoping… to have a productive day of house cleaning and grocery shopping

On my mind… shipping some presents. I absolutely can not stand the process or going to the post office.

Hearing…. the heater, J. making doggy noises, quiet – everyone just left for soccer.

I am praying for……. several ordinary things as God brings them to remembrance and several friends.

From the kitchen….. Right now, I believe the counter is completely full with things that need to be put away; food wise – there is a desperate need to go to the grocery store.

Around the house… a collection of shoes that need to be put away as usual, Christmas decorations went up Monday and a few brown boxes are sitting under the tree and in the closet (from out of town family). I must open and wrap what’s inside soon.

One of my favorite things… our Christmas tree and mantle garland lights. I love to have them as the only light on in the room. I could sit and stare for hours.

From my picture journal…
