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 Three

Outside my window… Beautiful spring day today. It’s dark outside now.

I am thankful for… God’s care, answer to prayer and help and that M. wants to serve the homeless downtown.

I am wearing… rose colored printed and jeweled tshirt with jeans and soft pink fuzzy socks

Some plans for the rest of the week… L’s 10th birthday, reflecting on Passion week, on Saturday I’m going to mow at Dad’s. I’ve put the start of the mowing season off as long as possible.

I am hoping … to get my book review blog done

On my mind… fighting cancer

Hearing…. giggles of 12 year old boys that don’t really sound like giggles, but mature laughs

I am praying for……. friendships

From the kitchen….. too much pizza and interestingly shaped and decorated sugar cookies

Around the house… still behind on laundry, pockets of items grouped for a garage sale (hope it happens this time).

One of my favorite things… seeing the ones I love enjoy themselves.

  1. So nice to meet you via Peggy's. I am sorry to hear that you are battling cancer...saying a prayer for your healing today:) I know just what you mean about boys' giggles...I thought the same of my 14 year old son, recently. May you find comfort and hope in the arms of Our Lord as you reflect upon His Passion this week. God bless your beautiful family!

  2. Thank you for the prayers. The fighting cancer is for family and friends. Our community's Relay for Life is coming up soon too so our fundraising has kicked into high gear!

    God knows who the prayers need to be applied to :0)


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