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 - December 11

Outside my window…neighbors riding by on bikes. They’re brave – it’s cold out!

I am thankful for… the boys participating with Scouts in handing out cards and gifts at the VA this afternoon. I’m thankful that Dad is well taken care of and will have something to do there on Christmas Day even though we won’t be there.

I am wearing… sweater-brown with peach and blue flecks, a v-neck with buttons up the front and jeans

Some plans for the rest of the week… M’s Court of Honor where he gets his next Scout advancement, surviving the last week before Christmas at school, a soccer & basketball game, Toys for Tots.

I am hoping… to enjoy down time during Christmas Break

On my mind… I still need to send out Christmas cards!

Hearing….neighbors are now playing basketball

I am praying for……. understanding

From the kitchen….. Taco Soup & no bake cookies for the auction at church tomorrow night.

Around the house… I love the glow that the Christmas lights make.

One of my favorite things… gingerbread

From my picture journal…

  1. Dear Annette...always nice to see what is going on in your home! It is very cold and wintry here in Kansas. It is very windy and it has been snowing off and on...but the wind does not let it settle on the ground! It is going to be a good evening to be inside where it is warm and cosy! Simple blessings ♥ Teri

  2. I LOVE GINGERBREAD! I ought to learn how to make it, I suppose? I enjoyed your daybook, Annete



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