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

True Confessions

A while back in a Daybook, I confessed that it was Hubby and not I that did simple sewing for the family. Now it's this:

I am not the one with a green thumb in our family. Anything that has to to do with plants inside or out (except the geraniums that I managed to keep alive all summer) is all Hubby's doing. Tonight he left with L. for Home Depot and Lowes and returned with two new pots for the pathos that needed replanting. So, not only did he do the replanting, he found the new containers too! He got these for 75% off!

I'm impressed...with everything.

Our beautiful weather may have inspired him to do this. It was rather inspiring for us all today. We enjoyed the mid-day out: lunch and gift card spending. The boys played basketball (L in his new Redskins hoodie).

All our windows were open all day and when I went out for a few groceries I wore flip flops! Just because I could. We made burgers on the grill and enjoyed them in our newly painted kitchen (thanks Hubby!) The kitchen is another post for another day...
