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 One

Outside my window… Very breezy and finally – the sun came out!

I am thankful for… a new vacuum cleaner with a stair brush. I am wearing… jeans, long sleeve shirt – don’t know how to describe it (or I’m being too lazy to), but it’s got purple in it!

Some plans for the rest of the week… soccer, Scouts, family visiting, soccer tournament, M’s birthday dinner.

I am hoping …to get started on packing my school room (new carpet coming this summer) and to make headway at Dad’s!

On my mind… wanting to just relax tonight – no housework, no school.

Hearing…. J snoring, M in his room and birds chirping outside (I hope they don’t get any ideas about putting up new nests on the porch!).

I am praying for…….participating in 21 days of prayer for my sons – see button on sidebar.

From the kitchen…..chicken, spaghetti squash, salad, grapes – upcoming this week: sloppy joes and Chinese chicken morsels with rice

Around the house…newly cleaned floors thanks to the new vacuum, laundry to fold, new quilt on our bed – I love it!

One of my favorite things… long walks – Aunt and I walked Saturday with J for three miles.

From my picture journal… Never posted last week. I think my camera may even be broken. This picture is from the boys and Aunt’s Spring Break trip.

    Good morning...what a fun Spring Break trip it looks like the family had. We have a few nice museums we visit each year, the hands-on learning. :-)

    Enjoy your new carpeted school room...a nice way to end the year (if you don't school year round...either way, it's always nice to have a chance to clean, organize and start 'fresh').

    Blessings ~


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