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 - April Number Four

Outside my window…
Very soggy ground, beautiful flowers blooming now in the main front flower bed. Also new mulch and flowers in the second flower bed and a weeded and prepped backyard bed too thanks to Hubby and his day off work.

I am thankful for… We had a beautiful Easter. Spent celebrating at church with family and got to help out with the pre-K children. Leisurely afternoon and dinner with family and friends.

I am wearing… jeans and college sweatshirt. I can’t believe it’s cool enough for a sweatshirt.

Some plans for the rest of the week… testing at school this week and some more box packing and room cleaning. Hubby and I get to go away this weekend! We’re (okay me – we’ll see what we both decide together) planning on a national park and a conservation center.

I am hoping … my throat stops itching.

On my mind… Mom and Dad. We made a super quick, rain soaked, and muddy trip to the cemetery and changed out the flowers on their tombstone. Aunt got daffodils- just like we always had at home (except ours were real, not silk!)

Hearing…. L. unloading the dishwasher, Hubby squeaking in the chair behind me – I need to give him the good one back. He spends more time in the office than I do.

I am praying for……. Relay for Life

From the kitchen….. Easter dinner: ham, hashbrown casserole, baked asparagus, relish tray, deviled eggs, rolls and angel food cake with cool whip and pineapple frosting. Today: salsa chicken, refried beans and leftover veggies. Tomorrow: leftover ham, potatoes and peas.

Around the house… a fairly clean house thanks to company for Easter!

One of my favorite things… seeing spiritual growth in my boys, going away with hubby, time with Aunt (this past Saturday morning).

From my picture journal…
We have never done the Easter bunny thing for our boys, but Aunt and I couldn't resist a picture for a school fundraiser.
