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 - Jan. 2

Outside my window…a breeze, dry winter grass, sunshine, the boys playing basketball in the driveway.

I am thankful for… 16 whole days off work (including weekends). Why is it that 7 o’clock used to be normal, but in a short break it is now “early”?

I am wearing… sorta black pants, purple/gray sweater

Some plans for the rest of the week… boys’ activities, a class starts for Hubby. For me – putting away Christmas decorations.

I am hoping… that all the Christmas decorations find their own way back to the boxes!

On my mind…A new year – the need to get back on track in many areas including eating right and exercising.
Hearing….M & L arguing about basketball

I am praying for…….Dad – didn’t get sick from being at our house, but a few weeks later is ill. He’s been on IV antibiotics for an infection and IV liquids for dehydration.

From the kitchen….. a new chili recipe with black beans, white chipotle corn and bbq sauce!

Around the house…All the totes for the decorations. Newly painted dining room, master bath AND kitchen!

One of my favorite things… when the boys don’t argue.

From my picture journal…
The Plaza, Old Town Albuquerque. Christmas Eve.
